Lets Get Crafty ... Last Minute Yule


Yule is the time of year where you give your best to other people.In my world that means I craft their gifts rather than give out Wallyworld gift cards.So while the bulk of the population are racing around going into debt.Im in the middle of finishing the many Yule presents that I make.I have to tell you this is not just a labor of love…

In the garden: Entry 1

I started gardening in the middle of April. It is now the beginning of summer. The plants currently in the garden are sunflowers, wildflowers, rosemary, sage, lavender, lamb's ear, zion, and hydrangea. I want to get some Jasmine.

The rosemary is slowly dying, and I'll likely cut a few sprigs before it completely dies out. Its needles are sticky and become fragrant when rubbed. It is a medium green and is supposed to get blue flowers, but I haven't gotten to see any yet. According…

Back to basics 2

MM all,

I hope you all are well. I have been a little busy this week, I picked up an extra shift at work, we got a new Telemetry system and I had to take two classes to learn everything about it. I just wanted to talk a little bit about the things I have been doing that have been making me feel great. (Besides harvest season, living in a farming community has it advantages, awesome local produce but the allergies I get from the harvest are not so nice)

I mentioned before that I…

First off, I just got done making rose water and homemade flea spray and bug repellent for the cats. I ordered a lot of new oils from I ordered a few empty bottles and a spray nozzle plus essential oils: Lavender, Cedar wood, tea tree, and pennyroyal, and almond carrier oil.

The next thing on my going green/life detox is to…

Some Good Old Organization part 3

I took the plunge this week and bought soap nuts(a laundry detergent alternative that is all natural), the oils for my cats, chia seeds, huck towels and cloth…

Planning My First Witch's Garden

So I'm making plans for my garden. I think my herb garden and my lavender are just going to HAVE to go in pots. The area where I'm moving to has very damp soil because of the mountain behind my house so I'm not going to try growing the delicate stuff in the wet earth. Some things do like it damp so I'm going to research that for my other plants like regular flowers etc. There is a very pretty little tree but I have no idea what it is, I can't wait till it blooms in the spring to find…

War of the Ants

Augh...You know? I love critters, big and small.. not that I'm a big fan of things that buzz and sting (I usually end up running the opposite direction with both arms wiggling in the air.. and screaming)..  But ants? I truly am getting tired of them.

A colony of red and black ants has moved into my new herb bed.  I'm VERY unhappy as they are making a huge colony right on the side of the circle area and very very close to my Hyssop....  Here you can see some of the herbs (about…

KittyNel's herbs. =D

I don't know if this will actually take off as a meme, but I wanted to try because I'm all happy after reorganising my petty collection of herbs. I just went through my herbs, wrote down everything I have, and now I'm posting it on here because I'm excitable and want to see what everyone else has in their herb collection. Soooo, if you're up to it, do a herb stocktake and blog what you have. =)

I also think you can tell what's going on in a person's life by the herbs they have. I'm being… Continue

Lets Get Crafty........Besoms

So today Im going to talk about one of the oldest of the witches tools (and a favorite of mine) the Besom.A Besom represents both the Goddess and God.The handle is considered masculine, while the broom part is feminine. Besoms also represent purification, protection, fertility and prosperity. The broom can be used to sweep a sacred space before performing a ritual. This is a purification activity rather than a physical cleaning.Usually the witch will… Continue

Lets Get Crafty ....A Witchy Wreath Of Protection

Welcome my lovelies !I recently completed a huge protection ward /witches wreath for a friend .This offered up the ideal opportunity for me to share some of the how to of crafting a ward of protection.First off she had her own wreath form she wanted used. Although very nice it was too flimsy to weave the center or support what was going to go on it ,I solved this by tying in a smaller sturdier wreath to the center ,thus creating a stable palet to add to.Before tying the smaller wreath to the… Continue
