Spiritual DIY: Fixed Prayer Candles

This is the first of a series of spiritual DIY posts I’m planning to make. (I was toying with the idea of making this a series of videos instead–and maybe I will at some point–but thus far I’m proving to be a world champ at avoiding filming myself.) I apologize that I’m not showing you…

Shop Update: Deity Portrait Necklaces

TL,DR: Go here to shop the new pendant necklaces! Only $8 each plus shipping! It’s been a hard, hard, year thus far for our household, with Jo and I sick continuously for much of it–with cold/flu-like ailments,  minor injuries, a trip to the ER, and on top of all that for me also with the…

Monthly Favorites: Jan – March

So, I’ve decided to start doing monthly favorites posts here. Unlike some of these that I’ve seen on other people’s blogs, my monthly faves will not be about items I’ve seen online that I admire, but actual experiences I’ve had, things I’ve purchased and want to recommend, and media (books, podcasts, YouTube channels, TV shows,…

If you haven’t heard about #The100DayProject and you’re on Instagram, search the above hashtag and you’ll find out all about it. It’s an opportunity to do a Thing of your choosing for 100 days and share it with the world using you own unique hashtag (as well as linking in with the project hashtag to…

A few new Tarot bags

I’ve just posted a few new Tarot bags to the store! Just FYI, the pink bag is very extra; we got a little carried away! See the below photo for size comparison: This makes it perfect for an extra large Tarot or oracle deck, but I’m working on some additional “standard sizes” too!

New prayer bead sets in the shop!

I’ve been playing around with a new jewelry technique that involves hand-painting those mass-made metal charms (the ones you see in my shop and everyone else’s continually) using a special kind of paint and sealer to make the color permanent. It’s been a learning curve, involving a lot of experimentation since there is really no…

An addendum to my “burnout” post

First of all, I want to thank everyone who reached out to me to express concern about my experiences. After everything that’s happened, I cannot tell you what this show of support means to me. However, I did want to clarify a couple of points from the previous post. One, I mentioned being a survivor…

On Burnout, Spiritual Identity Theft, and De-Personhood

I’ve literally had a hell of a week–spent half of Sunday in the ER for heart attack symptoms that turned out to be just acid reflux brought on by an antibiotic prescribed for a tooth infection, and now the dentist won’t even pull the tooth because he’s afraid of being sued. So yeah, I’m in…

New in the shop: Custom Malas

I truthfully never thought I would be offering custom malas again. BUT then I saw how my friend Deb Castellano was framing her listing for her custom ritual oils, and something clicked in my head; I could see how approaching them this way would be more sustainable for me, plus a lot more fun! (Yes,…

New Readings Available!

Three new reading options are now available for purchase in the shop–but the first one is only available through January 31, 2018! (I’m thinking I may experiment with having certain thematic spreads up only during certain months or at relevant times of year.) Hello, 2018! : A 5 Card Tarot & Oracle Reading to Help…

A few new spiritual necklace designs

Four new mala-style long beaded necklaces have been added to the shop, each one $40 plus shipping, featuring gemstone beads individually hand-knotted on waxed Irish linen in my usual style. These can be worn as necklaces (they are long enough to slip easily on and off over the head), used in meditation to count your…
