signs you might be a pagan

I totally copied this from an amazing blog the book of shadows blog I hope he doesn't mind. I love love love this blog!!

Signs that you might be a Pagan

1. You know the term "fluffy bunny" has nothing to do with Easter.

2. When you are sworn in in court, you bring your own grimoire.

3. You've been seen talking to cats. They talk back, and you understand what they are saying.

4. When asked if you believe in God, you ask, "Which one?"

5. You know what "widdershins" means. You apply it.

6. You have an entire spice cabinet and you don't cook. You know that Laurel and Bay Leaves are the same thing.

7. You have a frequent buyer card at the local antique bookstore. The proprietor of said bookstore picks out anything to do with Celts and saves it for you.

8. You think Mercedes Lackey should be a cultural icon.

9. You know that there are exceptions to the laws of physics. You've caused them.

10. The first thing your guests say is, "My, that's a nice... altar ... you have there.

11. On Halloween, you yell "Happy New Year!" at passers-by.

12. You know that Christmas trees were originally Pagan symbols. Thats why you bought one.

13. You have friends who say they are elves. You believe them.

14. You commit blasphemy in the plural.

15. Upon dying, your first thought is "Damn it, not AGAIN."

16. When you say "Mother Nature," you don't mean it in an anthropomorphic way.

17. Gaia is NOT the lady on Captain Planet.

18. You think "The Mists of Avalon" should be a religious text. You use it as such.

19.In religion 101. you were disappointed because they didn't cover YOUR Gods.

20. You know that there is a right way and a wrong way to draw a pentacle, you can explain the difference.

21. You've spent the last year and a half looking for a familiar.

22. You talk to trees, they talk back.

23. You KNOW dragons and fae exist. You've seen them.

24. Painting yourself blue, spiking your hair, and dancing naked around a bonfire sounds like large amounts of fun.

Magick Bubbles

I got another Art journal page done!
This one is Magick Bubbles..

I stamped and colored a Goddess from Smeared Ink..
Wrote the little Magick bubble spell..
and sprayed it with glimmer mist.. it really gets messy
 My wishes travel through the light to you, whole and protected, the entire night through.

I made the little Magick Bubble bottle to go with it.. this Magick would be fun with the kids!

L is for luck

I had five minutes to jot this down in my BOS..
so.. I picked Luck..
make a little charm to carry in your pocket.. or place wherever you need luck..

I just used a simple green colored pencil and some stamps, glimmer mist (which didn't quite smear as well as I hoped) and glitter...I have an almost empty journal to use.. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

We are challenged to play in our "art journals" every day over at Smeared and smudged my fav altered, goth, dark, crafty group.. (I am also a new Design Team Member) you can see the deets on my other blog :)

sooo.. I started my first page.. and figured I'd combine it all together to save me some time.. since last night was a lil rough.. had to make dinner, find a book at the library, make a project for a blog hop and run to the gym..
ok.. on to the project..

It says..

Luck Spell
-coin minted in year of birth
empower coin for luck by repeating
"by word by will
and this silver coin
magick and fortune
herein join"
carry coin or place where luck is needed

Thanks for stopping by.. more tomorrow..

A great Idea!

I just had the most awesome idea ever!
for the rest of my A to Z challenge.. I will be adding pages from my BOS!!
I had this most awesome idea to combine a "daily art journal" with my BOS making..
I will combine it with my blogging challenge here too!

That way I have something to post!
and I may just get some work done in my "witch book" :)

I rock!

so for today's letter..."k"
I nominate knowledge..
I will gain more knowledge in my craft as I learn about it, journal it, and decorate it.

I love when idea's just pop into my head.
Random as they are.

Today is brought to you by the letter "E"

I really wanted to talk about how I am now a soccer mom, for a minute anyways.. so I'm going to. It is my blog after all.

Lacey joined the Soccer team started at the rec center.
She loves it.
We know nothing about the game. At all.

We don't Enjoy it. She does. That's what mom's do.
We stand out in the cold wind, watching our kidlets run around kicking a ball.


She was so cute though. She ran, dived, kicked and stopped the ball every time.

You can see her if you look really really close, in the yellow. :)
With the Exception of the rain and cold, it was an Enjoyable hour outside. Lexi and I walked around the park for most of the time, trying to keep warm.
Everything went great. Got some Exercise in.
The kids will get to go to a professional game (which we might or might not attend) and have an appearance by a player at some point.
They only play Eight games, so it won't be too much torture for us adults. lol.
I can't wait until she goes back to baseball or maybe even football.

Ok so I'm already not doing well at this bloggin challenge.
I am tired. I don't have any wittyness in me today.

D..I think of that letter and Immediately think of..
I am NOT on a Diet..I am living a lifestyle. I am doing Weight watchers. I have a whole other blog for it :)
Doing ok also.. you can check it out here if ya want.

"Demanding Daughters"
do I need any more explanation? I have two.
yeah..I'm in trouble.
Weve already had our fair share of Drama.
That's a good one.. Drama..
with girls.. it seems to be everywhere.
Who is dating who?
Who is wearing the weird clothes today? (usually it's my kids)
Who Dumped who for who's boyfriend.. omg.. seriously?
I don't remember being that much Drama at that age.
I was a good kid.
ask my dad...I'll wait..


So.. I will have to get some ideas flowing for this challenge. I just don't think I'm all that interesting..
I will write some things down.. that may help
I may just have to resort to my awesome personality and creativity. ha!

It's gonna be a looooooong month kids. But I am Determined to do it!!

Have a great Day and happy hopping!

Can I go back to bed?

I don't really mind Monday's.
But I really need a longer weekend. Two days just doesn't cut it.

We did a Cancer fundraiser for a coworker this weekend. Made a trip to Wendover.. It was a blast..
We had the whole bus, with the exception of maybe two or three seats..
We got to stay in a hotel.. and it was kinda rundown.. but not much time was spent there anyways..

It was fun to have a bonding time with coworkers, their spouses and friends.. it was such a great time..
We may do it again in a few months. :)

So.. I missed "b".. but I had a good excuse.. I guess it could be represented by all the Booze we drank!

C.. I lost my mama to cancer. We helped out a coworker with cancer.. She needs a new liver.. We raised over $800 for her!
I still have a hard time talking about my mama. It's been three years. I still get a lil choked up thinking about her. Ok. Alot choked up. I miss her.

Cry? that is a good "C" word.

Monday.. boo!
