This past year, my relationship with crochet grew tenuous. What used to be my saving grace left me feeling disconnected. I found solace in other fiber arts as well as journaling, but crochet was my first. It was special. I missed it, but the inspiration was…gone. In 2019 when I was on bedrest with my […]
Time is an aspect of reality that is rather mind-blowing. The U.S. government is making moves to make daylight saving time permanent — which just goes to show how much of this is made up anyways. This is the thought I’ve had since childhood. It is a topic of debate among scientists, and has become […]
CW: alcoholism, death, suicidal thoughts Edit: just want to add this addendum that I am feeling ok in my life now, and am quite happy at times. The state of the world and society is easy to drown in, but I am doing my best to educate myself and teach my kids. I just wanted […]
The third phase of reigniting my journal practice was moving past the collage pages and showing up to write. Let me tell you, my brain has fought every step of the way. But, to be honest, that’s usually how it happens when something is going to be beneficial for me. I am only in the […]
Word witchery means that our altars, our spells and our devotion is built with language. We dance among pages, painting scenes and calling forth incantations. Energy lies behind everything: thoughts, words, actions. Much like the energy behind a written charm or a prayer, words pack a punch in witchcraft.

What do I mean by prayer? Many of us think of […]
Todays card pull, dreamland & soul check-in theme is connecting to this land. learning more about it, accepting it as my home. Having a cherished relationship with the trees. Conversing with birds. Catching a glimpse as rabbit tucks into the leaves of our hedgerow, skipping to the abandoned building next door. I dreamt of wolves […]
This is an unscheduled posts, but after an intense meditation (thank you to the Missing Witches Podcast) I received a download of incanctations for my writing practice. I wanted to share them with the collective, if you are open to it. Also featuring a new statue of Our Lady to build one of many sacred […]
How my prayers & portals journal have helped me traverse the astral
I, like many of us, dabbled in spirituality and witchcraft from childhood through my teens and early adulthood.
