Card of the Day


Card of the Day is from Lucy Cavendish’s Oracle of the Shapeshifters.  Words are from the accompanying guidebook.

You will have a series of coincidences where you seemingly stumble upon information that reveals what is the best action to take, who you can trust in the current situation, and where best to invest your previous energy and efforts.  There may be a darting red-gold movement seen from the corner of your eye, or a smile and shining brown eyes glimpsed through the window.  Japanese these may make their way into your life – for no apparent reason!  These are all signs that Kitsune is here to help you!  Kitsune often assume human form – so if you have a new neighbour with a ginger cat, a golden-coloured dog, or a red-haired new friend suddenly appears in your life, wonder if they may be your Kitsune at this current time!  You will know them by their strange behaviour (sniffing the air, high alertness, startled movements, and sudden action)!  They will ask you lots of personal questions, and prod and provoke your boundaries!  For the time they are assigned to you – and it is often unlikely that it is for the length of your lifetime – they will be true to you, in all ways.  They often are the go-between between Great Spirit, and we here in this realsm.  They are delightful, evasive, shy, friendly and full of mischief – and they will protect you by sharing with you the secrets they overhear.

More Monsters

I have created another monster pouch.  This one is a bit different.


The zip on this one is 12” long.  It is quite roomy inside.  Lots of fun to make, even more fun to use.


This is the back.  The green is the same fabric as the lining.  And yes, they are circles of purple polar fleece.  Needed something on the back, and who doesn’t like different textures in a pouch.

They will be available at my market over on Earth Walkers on Facebook.

Recently I dragged out my Runes and started using them again.  I’m by no means proficient, but I love the depth that Runes have.  I’ve added a Rune to the readings that I do, as a “what does this person need to know right now”.  I love the way this is turning out and how each Rune that I draw for people is exactly spot on and exactly what they need to hear right now.  It has encouraged me to start exploring reading with my Runes more often, and using them in spreads just as you would Tarot or Oracle Cards.

There’s a type of reading that you can do with Runes that you can’t do with cards.  It’s called a “Shake and Dump” reading.  You shake the bag of Runes, then dump them out onto a reading mat.  The mat is divided into sections depending of the type of reading you are doing.  There’s only one problem, I don’t have a Rune Casting Mat.  Well, I didn’t.  I do now.


I made this one today.  It’s double sided and about 10” square (25 cm).  The front is good for Past, Present, Future readings.  The back is divided into the directions North, South, East and West.  I have used colours associated with the elements that are associated with those directions according to my geographic location.  I plan on making larger ones, about 14” square (36 cm).  I am offering these up now so that people can order them and I can make them with the colours where the customer wants them.

If you’d like one, please head over to Earth Walkers and send me a message with your email address.



Our society has forgotten the Old Ways.  It has forgotten how to give without expecting anything in return, how to share with others the excess that they have, that all creatures are equal in the eyes of the Creator.

I look around at the society that I live in and I feel ashamed to be a human.  I look at the wanton destruction of Mother Earth around the world, the felling of trees, the mining of minerals and crystals/gem stones, the plundering of our oceans, and I feel sad.  Other humans are exploited so that we can have everything.  Well, one day there will be nothing left.  No trees.  No fish.  No clean water.  No humans.

What can we do?  We need to educate ourselves, and then spread that education to others as well.  A good place to start is with the Thrive Movie.  If you go to the website you can watch it online for free, or you can purchase the DVD or Bluray.  I have watched this movie and totally love it.  It’s more of a documentary.  It’s well researched and well put together.

We need to also not be afraid.  There is so many people that are afraid, everything they do is out of fear.  The opposite of fear is love.  This is how we are designed to live – out of love.  As we develop first love for ourselves, and then love for other people, we stop being afraid.  There is nothing to be afraid of.  If we are afraid, we attract more of that fear into our lives.  Fear stops us from moving forward both physically and spiritually.  When we love, we attract only love into our lives.  That removes all the fear and anxiety from our lives.

The more we occupy our heart, through meditation, positive visualizations, song, dance, etc, the more we raise our own individual vibration.  The more we raise our own vibration, the more we affect those around us and their vibration starts to raise.  The more we continue doing this the more the humans of this world will wake up and see what is going on around them.

This world will awaken from it’s slumber.  Those that seek to keep us enslaved will not win.  Many systems around the world are starting to crumble and very soon they will be destroyed.  This is nothing to fear.  It means we can start again.  We can create a system based on love and equality, rather than fear and inequality.

So, keep calm and harm none.  Namaste <3

Monster Pouches

I have developed the monster idea a little further today.  I have been making some Monster Pouches for my market.


This is the first of many.  These ones are roughly 5” square, and like all my other pouches, are fully lined with both fabric and a layer of dense cotton batting.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. Smile

Monster Mash

I had a brainwave the other day.  I have seen so many amazing monster dolls, and I have made them in the past myself.  So, I’m making a heap for my market.


They will each come with a little story.

It seems that the more I create for this market the more ideas I am getting.  I have a list of a few I want to try out ready for my market.  So stay tuned. <3

Busy, busy, busy

It’s Monday already!  I have been meaning to blog all weekend but have been busy making things for my market.  So, here are some sneak peeks for the market.


Small pouch – roughly 5” square.  All my pouches and bags are fully lined.  They also have a layer of dense cotton quilting batting for sturdiness and for padding.


Larger pouch – top is 10” and it’s 6” tall roughly.  Would make a cute clutch.


Today’s effort – 1 large tote bag.  It’s 10” across the top, 16” across the bottom, and 14” tall.  I’ve half sewn the strap on now.  It’s currently long enough so you can wear the bag securely across your body.  One end is only pinned on, that way if the customer wants a shorter strap, I can do that for them.


And here’s me with my Quality Control Officer, Abbie.  Have a wonderfully magical week. <3

Wow, it’s a bout a month until market day at Earth Walkers.  I think I’m trying to do to many things at once and successfully not getting much done.  Well, not much creating that is.

Because there are 4 different sellers, we all have our own Purchasing policies.  I’ve been working on mine, and they are now on the page as a Note.

The other thing I’ve been working on the last couple of days is getting my part of the prize done.  And I’m so happy with her.


She is an Abundance Goddess.  On her belly is a piece of green jade with a triquetra on it.  Jade is associated with abundance, prosperity, and luck.  So she is done and her photo uploaded on the page now.


This book of Egyptian Prosperity Magic was provided by Giuliana of Worldly Treasures.  Lots of great information in this book.  This is also part of the prize pack.

There are two more items to go into the prize pack.  Unfortunately they are not quite ready as the makers are still waiting for supplies via the postman.

I’m madly creating things for my market.  Some items have been completed successfully, others have found their way into the bin.  Such is life.

Yesterday I received my order from Joggles.  In that order was 3 doll patterns and some doll body fabric.  I made one of the patterns up today.

pierrot epb

The pattern is elinor peace bailey’s Pierrot and Victorian Doll.  She is only 10 1/2” tall.  A bit small for me, although I finished this one successfully.  I will be increasing her size by at least half before making her for my market.

Give Away Cancelled

Due to lack of participation, I have decided to cancel the give away.  Each person who has entered will receive a 1 card reading over the next few days.  I will email those to you.

I really don’t like doing this, but I don’t understand why people haven’t bothered to enter.  It would take two seconds to enter.  Anyway, it is done now.

Thank you to those who did take the time to enter.

Crystal Skulls

I have to say, skulls and all things gothic are not exactly things that turn me on.  I think more because I didn’t understand what skulls, especially crystal skulls, really meant.  It’s only that I spend so much time with my friend who owns Worldly Treasures that I have started to have an appreciation of the crystal skulls.  At first it was the workmanship that goes into them.  And then Giuliana started to explain to me what they actually represented.

They have a similar meaning to what the Death Tarot card has.  Death and rebirth.  To bring something new into your life something has to leave, or die, for that to happen.  The skulls are the same.  They represent that very natural cycle of death and rebirth.  Interesting that it is currently autumn here, a time of dying.

A few weeks ago Giuliana got this lovely skull in.  He spoke to me so clearly I had to put him on layby.


Spoke is an understatement.  After I put him on layby, every time I went into the shop after that I would end up with my left ear blocked, like I had lots of wax in it.  Happened a few times.  And I couldn’t stop thinking about him, and I finally put two and two together.  He wanted to come home.  So now he is home, and we are both very happy.

He is made from a piece of Travertino Alhombro Quartz, and his name is Merlin.  His properties are self healing, flexibility, magic and protection, allowing oneself to be open and non judgmental, grounding yourself, success and prosperity.  No wonder he needed to come home with me.

Some Questions

This graphic popped up on a friend’s Facebook wall.  We have no idea where it came from, but it is full of great questions with answers straight from the Bible.  Most of you will see the humour but will also see how sad this is at the same time.  There is no room for bigotry in any religion.  In Christianity, Jesus teaches love for all people.  Often what we see coming from the Christian community is racism, discrimination, hatred, and bigotry.  I hope that this does change.  Enjoy this letter.  Click on it to make it bigger so you can read it.  Trust me, it’s worth it.
