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

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,…

    Worth the Witch

      Witchy One: Intentional Jewelry For Magical Women by Una Spirit A while back, I reviewed the Una Spirit Medicine Bundle for PaganPagesOrg and was so impressed, I subscribed to the less expensive Witchy One box for $20 plus $5 shipping. I enjoyed it so I thought I would share it with you.     All these items fit into a box four-and-a-half-inches by five-and-a-half-inches by one inch high.     A picture of the Goddess Isis takes up one side of this locket. “She knew the magic of words and worked with this powerful tool of influence,” the card enclosed with the box states, adding, “May you wear it…

My feet rest on the carpet and as I feel the fibers between my toes, I remind myself to let it all go: tension, pain, sorrow — everything I don’t want to burden others with, and everything I shouldn’t carry myself. I feel it melt away from my body and into the earth, flowing off of my body like water, lightening me with every shaking…

    Learning Lenormand Interviews – Diana Clark, Creator of the Gaelic Lenormand

    This interview was done a few months ago, before the COVID-19 virus crisis hit all of us, so it’s a tad dated (I know that was just a short while ago, but doesn’t it seem like years already?). But I hope all of you will enjoy it. I have to say that I am looking forward to her horse-themed Lenormand! I have always loved horses, as anyone who knows me will attest!     Polly MacDavid (PM): In the beginning of the Companion Guide of the Gaelic Lenormand, you talk about your family history & how this informs your divinatory style.  Since not all of our readers have read the…
