I sometimes fret that I’m not as prolific as I used to be. My Druid studies have slowed down, for sure, but my crafting has as well! I often lament how I don’t get to flex my artisan muscles the way I used to now that I’m so often occupied with a little one. IContinue reading “Crafting For My Grovies”
Thanks to a generous gift from a grovie, I’m exploring weaving with a rigid heddle loom. Here’s my first project! I’m using scrap acrylic yarn, so it’s not very pretty, but I’m darn proud of my progress!
Although I don’t have much time to craft these days, I gleefully signed up for the ADF Artisan Guild Imbolc exchange. The group decided that everyone should make something small, and we decided on the amount of time it should take and the general cost. I was excited enough to participate and do a littleContinue reading “Art Between Friends”
This may seem frivolous to some. Like Valentine’s day, love between lady friends should be celebrated all year. However, unlike the love between romantic partners, especially that shared by people who see each other every day, it can be hard to express fondness for people who have become distant through the complications of life. WorkContinue reading “Happy Galentine’s Day to the Dear Women in my Life”
Yesterday was spent with some wonderful friends, old and new. We honored An Cailleach and Angus, feasted, and celebrated the winter season. 2014 Winter Solstice Celebration | Northern Rivers Protogrove, ADF.
Although well into the New Year, I wanted to take a moment and conclude writing about my experience with Three Crane Grove’s Yule Along. My family spent some time honoring our Goddess of the hearth, Brighid, and the Shining Ones. I became a little mixed up at the end. Three Cranes said they had miscountedContinue reading “Finishing Up the 12 Days of Yule”
What is a crane bag? The answer: not hard. The lovely Aoife was turned into a crane and lived about the seas of Manannan Mac Lir for many hard years. When she died, the great Sea Lord took her skin and made a magical bag that could hold his most beloved treasures. It’s said to beContinue reading “Pregnant Pagan: Birth and Motherhood Crane Bag”
Yesterday I joined my friend Miss Corinne to celebrate Arbor Day with her organization The Thousand Islands Land Trust. It was a really excellent event held at their Zenda Farm Preserve just outside of Clayton, NY. Admission was free and included information about planting and caring for trees, local wildlife, and local conservation efforts. Volunteers wereContinue reading “Signs of Spring and Celebrating Trees!”
A unakite Goddess figurine from a dear friend. A couple days ago, I came home and discovered a little surprise at my door – a package! I soon realized it was from my friend Daughter RavynStar. What makes this gift extra special is that she is leaving the North Country tomorrow, moving to warmer climates.Continue reading “The Blessed Gift of Friendship”
I’ve been a bit light on updates over the past couple days. Sometimes I worry I spend too much time as a techno Pagan. I can get caught up in the blogosphere or in the online groups. It can distract me from accomplishing my personal goals and just living. Being a Pagan, especially a Druid, isContinue reading “Ditzy Druid Doings”
