Three Things Thursday: Sacred Stitches, “Cooked,” and Novel Aesthetics

Sacred Stitches Each day, I draw an ogham card as an omen. I ask the Kindred what guidance, lessons, and blessings they have for me. Yesterday, I pulled Ioho /Idad/ Yew. Most of my sources refer to this as Idad… I’m very fond of Erynn Rowan Laurie’s interpretation of the ogham, and I embrace thisContinue reading “Three Things Thursday: Sacred Stitches, “Cooked,” and Novel Aesthetics”

Three Things Thursday: Low-Key Full Moon, Plush Tree Spirit, and a New Excerpt

Once more, three mini posts inside a big one! Trying to remain positive in light of a lot of anxiety at the moment. A Low-Key Full Moon I had plans for the full moon, and they collapsed, much as I did into bed, that night. The impact of losing an hour is amazing (on top ofContinue reading “Three Things Thursday: Low-Key Full Moon, Plush Tree Spirit, and a New Excerpt”

What a Decade! What a year!

Truly, the last ten years have been transformation for me, and 2019 was, overall, a grand end.   I entered the decade a newly married woman with a new job, new apartment, and new community. I had to start from scratch making friends and learning the land. My Druidry grew, especially in the first fiveContinue reading “What a Decade! What a year!”

Plant Spirit Ally Challenge: Day 22 – Make a Spirit Doll

When I was younger, my mother taught me to sew. My first project was a small pillow. I decorated it to look like the Earth. At least, that’s how I conceived of it in my six-year-old mind.

Crafting For My Grovies

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”

Latest Crane Bag

I started to explore the concept of crane bags back when I was pregnant.  I made a small bag specific to my pregnancy and desires for delivery.  The linked post is also where I shared the basics of what a crane bag actually is and where it comes from in Irish lore. Later, I decidedContinue reading “Latest Crane Bag”

Autumn Equinox Earth Mother Flag

Autumn’s arrival means I have to prepare my garden for the colder temperatures. I realized that I had the same garden flag out since the Spring Equinox. I’ve grown fond of having a splash of color flying in my garden, but tulips and bees just won’t cut it for this time of year. Rather thanContinue reading “Autumn Equinox Earth Mother Flag”

My Completed Crane Bag

Back before I had Bee, I researched crane bags and then made what I called a “motherhood crane bag” to keep with me through labor.  Since then, I have been meaning to make a general Druidic crane bag to have with me when conducting rituals.  My friend and grovie, Tara Loughborough, inspired me to makeContinue reading “My Completed Crane Bag”
