As I sit and I think about different and new ideas I can use for decorating , for this coming Samhain . When Autumn arrives , I get excited when that more than Magical chill hits the air , One knows the Witching time draws near . I redesign my home into an even more magical place then normal . I mean I always allow my "Witchiness" to shine through the " Normal " everyday way of things . But , during this time of year during the dark months when Mother Earth Sleeps I am my happiest . I am more of a home body . I mean think about it who wants to be cold and wet from the coming winter weather , I become a (Hermit Witch) - even more of a solitary practitioner . I conjure and cook and I am truly at my happiest . And some of that creation of my happiness is my environment .
So today I decided to make some shadow mice .
First Off what I did was to find some mice on the internet . I love Google Images you can find so many things on Google .
Print them out I used Card stock so that Pattern will last longer . As you can see I am in need of more ink but for what I am doing these are just fine . I then cut them out and trace
them using a white pencil .
I know I know very time consuming but it is really great practice of focus and concentration . Which I hear is a useful tool in doing magic . (Giggle ) It actually is a must !
Being able to see in your minds eye what your goal is is a great talent to have . For some it comes easy , for other not so much ... So as you can see I know have Shadow Mice climbing my pictures .Welp,it has been a pleasure as always . I must go and finish my shadow mice.
In closing I will say everyone holds Magic inside them ,that creative childlike Love of LIFE . That unexplained connection with nature or perhaps it is that lore of Dragon and Fairy , Brownie , Sprite and Nome .
Those of us who may have watched Lord of the Rings , The Craft , Practical Magic The Witches . Just an example . (Wink , Wink ) Or May have read The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe as a child . These are just my examples . It is probably something different for you all together , what I am trying to say is we all hold that magic inside . Why not let is spell out once in awhile and enjoy this One life we have here and now .
