Skulls!

I am sitting here at work (naughty, I know) and most of our building does not have power due to a blown transformer or something. We can't get into many of our systems and I wish they would send us home soon! When I first heard about it this morning, I was so excited at the thought of an unexpected day to myself - my head immediately filled with visions of beads!

Well, until I can go home I will write about my latest obsession - skulls! I guess I have always loved them, since I have a thing for Halloween. And then when I met my husband, he was really into the Day of the Dead holiday and the way those skulls looked. This year especially I seem to be having such luck finding these cool designs.

First up, here is a picture of the sugar skulls we made at the Art Center's Day of the Dead celebration last year. They are still in tact this year and no, I don't have ants in my house! Mine is the pretty sequin one!
After kicking myself for not buying a Joan Miller skull at Bead and Button, I was able to order one with some birthday money. I got the orange one.Then I found Gaea's wonderful collection of Day of the Dead pieces and am awaiting my order of some to match the Joan Miller to make a cool necklace.
And here's my new Nick & Nora pajamas from Target. They are so comfy!Lastly, I do not have a picture of it yet but I was able to snag one of Green Girl Studios new bronze skull coins! I made a necklace last night so maybe I will post a picture of it once I complete my other skull necklace with the supplies listed above......

hey, how did you get yours already!??
You must get extra special treatment or something. I just ordered mine from Greg. It's the owl. I hope it comes soon. I can't wait to see what you make with your skull.

I guess I was lucky Lorelei! I thought for sure I wouldn't get it until they were back from their recent trips but Greg must have mailed it before he left. It was a great surprise! I'll be anxious to see your owl too!
