    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    Witch’s Runes Merry meet.     I was a witch for more than a decade before I came across a set of witch’s runes at a tag sale. It was several more months before I was able to identify what they were. If you believe less is more, you will want these. If the traditional Norse rune symbols don’t resonate with you, it could be because they don’t speak your language. Every witch, pagan and muggle can understand these eight symbols: sun, moon, wave, birds, leaf, rings, crossed spears, and the color black. My symbols were burned into twig slices. If you’d like to make a set, you might consider…

    Easy DIY Floating Candles Merry meet. I like using floating candles on my altar because I know the water will prevent a fire – and because they emit an enchanting light. Yes, you can buy them, but crafting them is easy using a variety of objects: walnut shells, many seashells, bottle caps, a mini muffin pans, vintage tart tins.   The easiest way to make them is to melt tea lights by placing them on an electric coffee cup warmer. Once the wax is liquid, move the wick from the tea light to the middle of the mold, and carefully pour the melted wax into the walnut shell, clam shell,…

    Jazz’s Needle

    BElieve in YOUrself (and the struggles I had) This is my first submission for a crafty needlework article and I almost started over as this project was not my favourite since I had many struggles with it, but the one I chose kept telling me to believe in myself, and so I persevered and finished it. I will walk you through the process and my obstacles and end with the finished item. My next one will be a very pagan one as I have already started designing the pattern to stitch and am looking forward to being able to actually show off my stitching ability. I feel like even though…

    Planning with Avalon Video

    Sabbat: Midsummer Planning with Avalon Sol the Sun God is at the height of his virility. The Goddess is now full and pregnant with child.

As the light reaches its peak so this is also the moment when the power of the Sun begins to wane. From now the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer and we are drawn back into the dark to complete the Wheel of the Year. The Oak…

    Making Soap     Merry meet. We all need a bit more magic these days, and soap is one way to add magic to your life without it being noticed. I never liked messing with lye, so I found two easy options. Briefly, one is to grate bars of soap, melt, add ingredients and pour into molds. The second way is to buy the soap base from craft stores, melt, add ingredients, pour into molds. It’s that easy.   (image: soap with oatmeal)   Directions for the latter are on the package, so I’ll step through the first lazy method. [1] If you choose to use botanicals, sprinkle some in…

    Yorkshire Pudding I thought for this months recipe I would do one of my favorite sides. Yorkshire Pudding. Nope its not a pudding at all, the name sure does confuse a lot of people. Its like an American popover but much, much better. Why do they call it Yorkshire pudding? The Yorkshire pudding was known as a “dripping pudding” because of its use of the juices from the meat — and was served as an appetizer to fill up the person due to the relative scarcity and usually small portions of meat that would be served. It is a British recipe started about 1737. It has been changed up a…

    Witchy Fingers Stew aka String Bean Stew   Today we are going to make a delicious stew that I call witchy fingers stew since the string beans look like a witch’s fingers. It is a great stew to serve up for Beltane. It has a little kick to it but if your not into spicy you can omit the cayenne pepper. The spice is for the fire of Beltane. The Earthy string beans, onions, celery and meat go so well together. Beltane is a time to celebrate fertility of the Earth, fire and abundance. It is celebrated on May 1st in the Northern Hemisphere and on November 1st in the…
