Altar Freshening With New Deity Images!

Can we talk about how in love I am with these statues?
At first the size difference between the two made me tick, but once they were on my altar and welcomed aboard they looked so right. So perfect. I could almost feel the loving adoration between the two of them.

Wouldst thou like to cuddle, deliciously?
This fall I put aside my usual crochet/sewing projects in favor of a craft project that was a little more Satanic.

The Most Beautiful Books Ever! - Slow Art Studio and Bindery

At the Spring Equinox last year I started keeping a magical diary again. I figured if I could consistently keep a Bullet Journal along with a mundane book where I dumped out my feels, I could keep a magical record.

I chose a cheap notebook I bought at Walmart that I wouldn't feel bad about messing up or tossing if I decided the whole exercise was crap.

Let's catch up with each other!

In August I became obsessed with making corn dolls, an example of which ended up here. It's one of my new favorite ways of making poppets because it's faster than sewing.

The Grand High Witch, Herself!
In November I had my 34th birthday and I spent the day at home, drinking a lot of coffee, and writing in my Bullet Journal and in my Woo Book. A friend gave me a mala made from black lava rock and I've been doing sitting meditations as a way to unwind after very long hospital shifts. I spoiled myself with new book…
