An Image-Heavy Update Of Druidic Proportions!

Life has been pretty busy this past week due to work, a death in the family, and plans with friends and family.  My craftiness has been slowed and, as work picks up, will probably stay that way for a few months.  I still have a DP to finish reviewing and an email from my menteeContinue reading “An Image-Heavy Update Of Druidic Proportions!”

Mmm…essential oils…

Today, Weretoad and I went to a craft show in Clayton sponsored by the Thousand Islands Art Center.  It was exquisite with high quality artisan crafts; probably the most diverse and interesting craft show I’ve ever seen – along with Utica’s Indie Garage Sale.  Weretoad bought me a stained glass triquetra.  I bought tea treeContinue reading “Mmm…essential oils…”

More Crafty Goodness

 Here’s my first attempt at an amigarumi Earth Mother/fertility Goddess.  I used blue and green yarn to represent earth and sea.  In retrospect I wish I had finished with a darker blue – then it could have been from the top down sky, earth, and sea – the sacred realms of Druidism.  The Autumn EquinoxContinue reading “More Crafty Goodness”

What have I been up to recently?

Besides reading, surfing the internet, and watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer? I harvested a few herbs, labeled them, and hung them in the art and ritual room. I’ve slowly been carving a staff. I experimented and made a baby griffin.  Here is the front. Here is the back of the baby griffin.  There are someContinue reading “What have I been up to recently?”

Nature Walks and Staves

My cough hasn’t completely gone away, meaning I haven’t been able to meditate again.  I made up for it ten-fold by going into the forest for a long time by myself.  Something about the experience feels meditative in some way – very peaceful and clarifying.  There’s also an exhilaration born from excitement, personal triumph, andContinue reading “Nature Walks and Staves”

My Lughnasadh

Lughnasadh started yesterday for me.  Weretoad had to work but I still wanted and needed to attend Muin Mound Grove.  I had committed myself to make the main offering – a doll of Tailtiu, Lugh’s foster mother.  It is because of her that we celebrate Lughnasadh.  The story goes that she cleared the fields forContinue reading “My Lughnasadh”

Just a Few Things

1) Here’s an interesting if brief article on “spiritual blockage.” 2) The incessant coughing I have is apparently caused by seasonal allergies – something that I’ve never officially been diagnosed with until now.  Bugger all.  I was always so happy to be in the minority of adults who didn’t have to deal with allergies.  WhyContinue reading “Just a Few Things”

Returned from the Faire!

Hello dear readers! I went away for a few days to visit some of the tribe and travel to the Sterling Renaissance Festival. Hubby and I go every year and always enjoy it immensely. As usual, Weretoad and I dressed up.  It was pirate weekend, but we dressed as …  wealthy merchants?  Lesser nobles?  IContinue reading “Returned from the Faire!”
