Skulls skulls and more skulls. Crystal Skulls.

The earth is in a period of transition and , since humans tend to fear the unknown and change in general, it seems the skulls are really needed here at this time. Or is it just getting popular?  I truly believe popularity  is why there seems to be a growing interest and demand for them.  Don't know what I'm talking about... crystal skulls.  Why would a crystal skull be any different than a crystal of any other shape.. a butterfly or a heart or just its own shape.  ummm?  I have just gotten a book called Crystal Skulls , emissaries of healing and sacred wisdom by Marion  Webb-De Sisto.  I am very interested in what it has to say. I do know that the largest growing part seems to be in the United Kingdom. Revenia says  that the skulls are needed by people  as a way of helping them "cope with the various stresses and changes in our world that affect us all to some degree." I'm interested why she thinks that and again dose it have to be skulls?  I would live to hear what your thoughts are on this.

    I do a lot of Art Journaling and this has even become super big in this area.

I have found a ton of different kind on the net.. like everything you could think of.  Here is a few photos that I found even.

 I even found this group meeting from 2011  of these 3 woman.
    Here is their link ,  but I don't see anything added on to it from my side.
On that note and with a few photos Im going to sign off for the day.. Getting chilly here and I need to get some heat on or get up and move.  lol   
As always... Bright Blessing to you and your.

New BOS sheets almost done.

This is  what I have been working on.. yea me.. getting stuff done. I guess it helps here in Ohio when the weather starts cooling down and my brain can work and think better.. lol   Well so sure about that think part, but sounds good to me at the moment.  
This sheet I just love!!! it is super dark and wish I could copy them.. but it just doesn't work that way.
This one was soaked for a few days in heavy coffee and a cinnamon tea mix.

 Now this pile are all just a little different , but yet the same. you can kinda tell if you look at the bottom. should have taken more photos. These are just tacked down for the moment till I am sure this is how I want them.  Any Ideas. ( stamped out and then cut in to the shapes I want or the part that I want to use. Then tacked down on the paper )

 Another really nice dark one.. I love the dark staining lines. This one was stamped , then masked off the front part and stamped the window onto the back.. pretty cool isn't it.  My daughters doing.  Got to love it.. then soaked in the staining mix.

This one.. just different.. It is stamped and ready for staining. I think it will make a great love or friendship page.. or future spell page since I do have a crystal ball on it too.  This one will be fun to color.
Well that's it for today.. I hope you get some ideas to get you started on a new page in your book.  Remember you can do anything..  paint, stamp, stain, color.  You do not have to make your pages look like old book sheets you see on tv shows.. yes I know it makes them look cool... just think in time they will be cool no matter what.   Heres a tip/hit cut out newspaper dates or adds and clue on to your sheet for the date, its  a nice little touh.

Just a thought for the day.

 This is a thought.. just a thought.. but look how true it is.
You are a unique and magnificent human being.. Of all the billions of people on this earth there is not another you and your very existence is vital to thing functioning., Because you are a part of this earth.  All that you see, and all that you do and all that there is, could not exist with out you!!!

Ok on that note.. did you know that.......
 OM    means Enlightened Body
 AH     means Enlightened Speech
 HUNG   means Enlightened Mind
 HO      means Enlightened Activity.

 Boy I'm just full of it today aren't I.  lol  Its a dull and rainy day out and I need to get my mind in the right mind set or I will just waist the day away and I don't want that.  So think on the positive side of things today.. the weather dose have a lot to do with people and how they feel and the shortening of the days only make these feeling stronger. I know personally I need to have the nice bright sunshine or I feel cleome as they say and its hard for me to shake. So light that positive candle.. burn some sage and put on a big smile...
 Love and light and bright blessing to you  and yours.

Osiris (Egyptian) Great God and Isis's partner, father of Horus. He sacrificed himself so that life could regenerate.  We always hear about Isis but not much about him. Well September 24 is sacred to Osiris for death and rebirth.   Great day to do a sheet in your BOS about him.

Mystery of the wheel Lummas and Mabon

In myth, the Goddess sees with sadness that the strength of the Sun God is fading, but it lives on inside her as her child.  The fruits of our labor are celebrated and enjoyed from out gardens.  A time to look back and celebrate successes and   achievements of the past year.  In cutting the corn the seed is gathered in and ensuring a new life.
 Imagery to use - 
Corn and wheat, a large scythe, daisies for joy and success, grapes for opulence, loaves of beautiful breads to represent new creations formed from raw material and ideas and labor.

September 24
  Sacred to Osiris, Egyptian God of death and rebirth.

October 9
 Sacred to Felicitas, Roman Goddess of good fortune and luck.

October 18
 A day to honor Cernunnos, the Pagan Horned God of fertility, wild animals , the forest and hunting.

      OCTOBER 31ST
    Samhain is one of the Greater Sabbats and an agricultural festival now adays. On the land it is the 3rd and last harvest of the year ( Lammas and Mabon being the first 2 ) and  time to store the final food stores away for the winter. Samhain is the beginning of the Witches Year,  a time of divination and prophecy and a time to honor the dead.

Craft room mess!

I don't know about you.. but I can tell you that I am having a time of it trying to organize my stuff.  Oh where to start I always the big thing. Then what to put where and how. So what I have been doing is grouping my stamps in boxes or tubs. .  like cats that changed to animals.   ok what do I do with the pack that has swindle and dots and dogs and cats in it. I don't want to break up the set. But I have a box just for designs too.  See my issue.  Ok the other is I just have was to much and to small of a space.  To many ideas and they just get lost.  I am taking on a do NOT go in to craft stores for a while. I don't need anything. Trust me other than a personal organize to come in here and give me a hand.  I think my brain just shuts off when I come that possible? 
The cubes I thought would be great ... it is I just cant get it together in any kind of order it seems.

This mess on all the little desk top drives me in sane! I'm going to work on the TODAY!

The wall unit and stamps is the only thing that seems to be right but the desk under it just kills it.

and this mess ... ugg  is in no order of any kind. I tried. But id didn't work or come out that way.
I know that I would be more productive if I didn't have the mess cause I just get side tracked with it and end up messing with other stuff. Plus it doesn't give you that feel good feeling being all over the place. 
Any way I do hope that I can make some head way in here today.. I have a can of Mocha and Elvis to play.. to keep me going.  Wish me luck.

Full Moon Dates for 2014

Here is a full moon calendar with the days and date for those of you who have a hard time keeping up with them. My self and others find  that we work better and are more creative during these times. Meaning this would be great times to plan to work on a certain craft project that you have been having fits with. Or lets see getting that one thing done that we just cant seem to find the energy to do.  Maybe clean the closet .. that was mine last month. Personally I get much more creative a few days before even and do my best work at these times, weather it be making a craft or organizing something.  Any way here it is and I hope It will help you make some plans.

New card for any day.

Here is the new card that I have been working on.. I was made from all my scraps that is always good for starters.  The quote ~ humming bird ~ and cup cake are  all stamps for they Unity pate stamp of the month club.  And I love them.  The cup cake be done up in so many ways... its just fun fun fun.
I have super glitter paint on the top of the cup cake really thick so in person its fluffy. I will have to see if I can get a better photo of it to put on here.  The Humming bird is glitter water color paint so it is very faint. And the it's a white gel pen that I wrote in the back birthday words.   I hope you enjoyed the idea.. So many possibility's!

 Hello Tubie's,
I hope this finds everyone having a great week!
 I personally am sick of snow up to my knees!!
I will keep this short ... Here is my desk, since that is what it's all about, and the photo of the bumble bee girl is the Atc that I finish today for a swap. I still have to seal it to make it nice and shiny. The wings do already have  watercolor glitter paint on them.. just can't see it in the photo.
 Here you go... Enjoy and as always bright blessing to you and yours.  :-)
FYI.... That is Sam.. He was the kitten that no one wanted.. I have been very blessed... he is a 16lb buddle of pure love.. (on most days).  He is very handsome if I do say so... grin  But I'm still working on those 2 pages, and him.
And as I said the is my ATC that is going out in my swap.
Time to get back to my paint.
