New Room and stamping around.

Merry Meet and bright blessing to all.... That's a big Hello everyone.
Summer seemed to take for ever to get here and now again its over already.
All though I love fall and everything about it.. its the winter coming that I don't care so much for.
But I have a NEW craft room to work in this winter thanks to my daughter who pushed me into it, and she was right. The bigger room and the view out the window is much nicer and yep it will be great when the snow is flying. burr.
Here is one photo of it.. I was having trouble with my camera making the photos black because of all the light coming in...need to take at night I guess. 
And its still a bit messy but oh so nice. Plus we have lots of space for both of us now.. yea !
Ok on that note here is a few things we have been working on..
They are for EBay.. cant never find any so we just made some.

And that's not all... have been working on B.O.S. and pocket cards.  Here are a few of them
 and some tags mixed in.   Photos are not so great today, but you get the idea.

lots of fun goodies.  Thanks so much for looking and I promise to take better photos next time.
Bright blessing to you and yours.

New Rubber !!

Look what momma bear got in the mail finely today... ok  sorry that is what I say to my kids that are also no longer  I guess I am just being goofy today. Must be the heat. Any way here they are and I just love them.
 I need to cut them apart and mount them as you can see and I hate that part.. boo hiss.  But do what you gotta do.  
Here is what they look like stamped.

 And here is where I got them. I have looked at them for over 3 years.. why so long.... well I was hoping they would go on sale or something. Didn't happen so if you see any you like you might as well just get them so you can be playing with them.  They have a lot of neat stamp, this set cost me $21.00 and is the side of a 1/2 sheet of paper.
I'm off here for the night and think I'm going to go make some cut outs.  You all have a awesome evening and bright blessing to you and your.

New Stamp Release Challenge

Hello everyone.  It has been insane at my house lately.. very much.  Hubby has been off work cause of his back, kitty had to have eye removed... which she is ill again, MOVING MY CRAFT ROOM OMG!!!! What a mess I have there.. oh we won't go on. So I needed a few minutes of craft time.  So Here is a fast and simple small journaling page to add to my others.  This is for the New Stamp Release Challenge  at Lost Coast Designs.  
Ok here is what I did..  I painted my index card the cut grass green by dylusions ( awesome paint ) then used white paint on a  star stencil,  Then I did the ziggy stencil down the side.  Found a piece of yellow paper I liked and cut it out to make the moon and glued it on and when around it with a grey maker to give it some depth.  Then last  I Added the painted blue cut out city. And WaLa  I have the stars and moon over the city for my new page.  
The city stamp can be found in the new release section in the Lost Coast catalog. They have lots of really fun new things.  I got quite a few of them my self..  Ginnzzzz  :-)
Thanks for looking and I hope you have a great day.
Bright blessing to you and yours.

ATC .. New stamps from Lost Coast Designs

New ATC..  yea,  its been a little bit of time since I have made them. This ATC was made for the May ATC Challenge for Lost Coast.  I have been into so many things lately that I can't decide what I like doing best.  Art Journaling seems to be a big thing.. I love the painting part. Stamping would come in next..  so many stamps.. what to pick.
  Soooo on this ATC I have used 2 different green paints and just used an old room key card to spread the paint.  White paint  through the Punchinello.  The Spider Web stamp is on top of that and is from Lost Coast Designs and so is this Awesome cat that I love. The cat I stamped on card stock then just cut out and glued it on.  I have some great new Lost Coast Design stamps that I will be posting later .   Hope you enjoy and as always bright blessing to you and yours. 

A Big Happy Birthday to My Daughter Tera.

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.

Who is Osiris.... ?
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 12
 Infamous occultist and magician Aleister Crowley was born in 1875.

October 15
 Sacred to Mars, Roman God of battle.

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.
