Halloween at last....

Hi everybody. I feel really proud of myself that I did so much clearing up and cleaning yesterday. My apartment looks quite different; the table in my arty-kitchen is completely cleared, I think this is the first time that I have seen the whole table top for a long time. I know it won't last long; as soon as I get back to work it will magically fill itself up, but now it looks like a table again, and we will be able to eat there like civilized people. The whole of the couch is also free to sit on, and my sandals and summer shoes - which were still littering the hall are now all away; I think boots are now more appropriate.
In the night from Saturday to Sunday we put our clocks back for winter time, and so it was dark really early yesterday evening, which I can't say I like. It makes the evening very long, and as I don't really want to get up early, an hour extra light in the morning is not my thing. Oh well, I suppose it helps some people.

I didn't have much time for crafting yesterday, I just managed a very quick journal spread, which will be the last of my Halloween things for this year. I coloured the pages with water soluble crayons and then sprayed over them with some diluted distress inks, before adding the last of my Halloween bits and bobs and doing a bit of doodling. I will try to do a bit more doodling or scribbling on them in the course of the day, if I have time. The skull tag on the right hand side can be taken out of its pocket,




Hope you all have a great day with lots of haunting memories! Have a hoot, but be careful if strange creatures come to your door, and make sure you feed them well!
