Featured Favorites Friday: Exploring Samhain on Storenvy

I've re-opened my shop on Storenvy and am excited about selling again!  For this Featured Favorites Friday I decided to take a look around the Storenvy marketplace and see what Samhain goodies I could find!

Hand Crafted by Kimberly Abbott

Check out this amazing Pendulum Board titled "Curiosity" by Kimberly Abbot of The Alluring Path.  I love the six color choices she has and I love the owl, especially her face.  The whole shop is full of lovely things, especially the Celtic Knot Pendulum Board and some beautiful scrying pendants.  Be sure to check her out!

Handmade Samhain Pillar Candle
From Artemis Secret Place


This candle from Artiemis Secret Place looks so witchy!  I love that it's scented with Witches Brew and that the maker uses eco-friendly soy wax.  This or the two candle set would add flare to any Samhain gathering.

Cemetery Seer Necklace
From The Bone Slums

How stunning is this piece from The Bone Slums?!!!  It's called the Cemetery Seer and the oracular witch in me is drawn very strongly to the stunning opening in this piece which is perfectly accented with dark brown cord and carnelian.  Every piece in the store is cruelty-free and sunning with organic beauty!

Remember The Ancestors Spell Kit

Last but not least, here's my Samhain offering for this year, a Candle Spell Kit to Remember the Ancestors.  Blessings to all of you this witches new year!

Dusting off the Online Witchy-ness

Two years is a long time.  Apparently the world wanted to shake me up, and it worked for a bit.  I've found my footing again and I'm looking forward to being back here, writing and crafting and being witchy again.

I've woken up my ebay auctions and my Fiverr gigs.  This post is the first stirrings for a blog re-boot.  Next I'll resurrect my facebook and storenvy and prepare to be back in business.

In other, more personal news, the 2014 Maryland RennFest went very well.  I have a new man in my life, and I think I'll keep this one.  My meetup group is going super well and my daughter is turning into an amazing young lady.

Coming soon you can expect Tarot Tuesdays to re-appear.  I expect to participate in the Pagan Blog Project in 2015 so I might practice for the rest of the year on Friday's.  I do like My-Stuff Mondays so they may re-appear.  As things pick up I will do my best to re-start giveaways and reviews and event announcements and stuff.

Looking forward again... it feels nice.

ARRGHH! The MD Renn Fest is kickin my arse!

Map of the Maryland Renaissance Festival
You can find me on the weekends either at the White Hart tavern or across from the Joust.  You'll know me because I'll be the one yelling "Soap and Candles!" or telling you "The glass is much more beautiful from the inside!"

Regardless of my crazy schedule this harvest season there will be Tarot Wednesday tomorrow, a giveaway on Friday and a post about an AWESOME conference coming up on Sunday.  This I swear!

In the mean time, take a look at some of the DELICIOUS food you're missing in the White Stag Grove.

Never Forget

That day still burns brightly in my mind.  I remember being in school in New York and staring at the TV in disbelief.  What was happening in New York was bad enough but you should have heard what the announcers were saying about DC, where my family lives and works.  Just like everyone who survived that day there are stories of near misses and frantic phone calls.  None of my family died, but everyone knew someone.  Even now it hurts my heart.
"I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened." ~ Obi-Wan, Star Wars Episode VI: A New Hope
Never again will a commercial plane be used to attack us; the heroes of Flight 93 have seen to that.  And once again the world remembers what it is to have a united United States of America bring the brunt of their force to one target.  Power shifted and the world changed. 
“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”~ Yoda, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

We are not forgetful people and we are not afraid.
