    Book Review – Full Circle Health: Integrated Health Charting for Women by Lucy H. Pearce

    Book Review Full Circle Health Integrated Health Charting for Women by Lucy H. Pearce Publisher: Womancraft Publishing 169 Pages Publication Date: 5/18/2017     I will preface this review by saying that I am a fan of Lucy H. Pearce and Womancraft Publishing. This book is more of a workbook than a “reading” book. As women, we have much to deal with that affects, not only our bodies, but our minds and spirits, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually. We live in a world that diminishes us. We take care of everyone before we even think of ourselves, if we do, indeed, ever do take care of ourselves. We do not make…

    Book Review Pagan Portals Lugh Meeting the Many Skilled God by Morgan Daimler Publisher: Moon Books 112 Pages Publication Date: 04/30/2021     I’m always keen to read just about anything Morgan Daimler pens, from their exciting Between the Worlds fiction series to their many detailed and well-sourced books on Irish paganism and fairy lore. This book in particular, though, was high up on my TBR (to be read) list, as I am fascinated with Lugh and have had a back and forth relationship with this complex deity over the years. As Morgan notes in the introduction, there isn’t really a single, solid source out there about Lugh, which seems…

    Witch & Popcorn

      Review of Jacob Mulliken’s Berserkers   Bright Blessings, Film Lovers! I was sent this gem a couple of weeks ago and spent the next hour and a half laughing and enjoying the campy good fun it’s filled with. A comedy horror released in August of 2014, this is available to stream for as little as $1.99 on Amazon, unless you’ve got Prime, and you may be able to watch it free. A trailer to show what you are missing is here:     The film follows Hunter and friends, who gather on his birthday. They are going out of their way to cheer him up as he’s broken hearted…

    WitchCrafts: Crafts for Witches – An Interview with Michael DeMeng of Art Abandonment

    WitchCrafts: Crafts for Witches Interviews Michael DeMeng of Art Abandonment     I’m an avid crafter. You will always find me working on something or many somethings. Whenever I go somewhere I take a project with me, I have to have my hands moving in some creative way at every moment. I’m also an enthusiastic giver! I love giving people gifts more than receiving them. If I know something is going to make someone happy I have to give them it. Nothing makes me happier, then knowing that I caused someone’s joy. Most of the lovelies I create are gifts for others. A few months ago, while trolling facebook groups,…
