Wow! Over the last few days life really decided that my plans were unimportant. I had hoped to post this on Sunday as per my usual schedule but like I said, the universe had other plans. One of the things I’ve been discussing on my blog is fairy tales and the impact they’ve had on … Continue reading Fairy Tales: The Red Shoes

In the past I have observed the Sabbats but never made a big deal out of … Continue reading Celebrating Imbolc
Happy Imbolc! How are you spending the day? I’m crafting these gorgeous little Goddess dollies I saw on Pinterest. They look like a simple decoration to make. Lucky it’s a Saturday and I can spend a decent amount of time crafting and musing on my Craft. I'm a little under the weather at the moment … Continue reading Imbolc!
