Please help save a Fellow Pagan's Dog...

We are trying to help raise money for Red Raven's 5 year old Dog Jack - he needs a $1200 surgery to remove blocked kidney stones, before any complications that could end his life happen. If you dont have money to buy anything at this time, please send healing energy to Red Raven, Jack and the rest of their family.

If you have a few minutes today, please take a look at some Beautifully Handcrafted Pagan items at Red Raven's Cauldron on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/redravenscauldron

If you feel inspired to, maybe also share this post on your Facebook Wall or Blog as well.

You can find Red Raven on Facebook: http://facebook.com/Red.Raevyn.Beth

Thanks so Much!

Love & Light to All -

Amazon Associates & Blog Exchange

Well, I guess because I live in California I can't be an Amazon Associate any more.. That's such a bummer! I really enjoy having the ability to recommend all sorts of books and products... but that's ok. I'll still be posting all my favorites... it was just so easy to use Amazon with Blogger.

I feel like I've been living on a different planet these past few months. So much has happened and I've been sick (i.e. resisting change) so the process of Life has been much slower than I'm used to. It's given me some time to think and (finally!!) reconnect with my Creative Muses. To me there are few things worse than being cut off from the Creative Voice of Spirit... but now that my Connection has been re-opened I'm feeling drawn to start doing some new things that I'm really excited about.

Right now I'm thinking I will keep my Enchanted Garden Studio blog (www.thewhimsicalwitch.net) open for all things Creative - Altered Art, Jewelry Making, Candle Pouring, Incense Making, Herbal Mixing... Everything I love to do all while savoring the Spiritual Connection I receive while Creating!

I will be using my Living Earth Reiki blog (http://livingearthreiki.blogspot.com/)  for all things Healing. I am on this constant journey through healing - I have some chronic health conditions, as do my children. I don't think I'm the only one out there in this situation. I read a lot. My whole family is very willing to try new methods for healing. And right now I'm being given the 'green light' during my meditations to start sharing our journey by keeping an online journal about it.. so I will use the blog I currently have for my Living Earth Reiki Spiritual Healing Practice (www.livingearthreiki.com) and share my experience in the hopes that it might help even just one other person (although it is my intent for it to help more than that...) 

I've noticed when we have chronic heath issues it makes us feel alone, but that's so not the case! And once we can find someone in a similar situation that is thriving and making it work, we have the opportunity to cultivate  Hope within us... Once we have Hope we can really begin to start to heal... even if only on a small scale. It's all about taking 'baby steps' and being kind to ourselves. I don't want to get into too much here.. (I'll leave that for the other blog) I just wanted to share what I'll be focusing on and where. I do hope you'll join me.. I'm excited, for the first time in a very long time. I just hope my energy levels can keep up with everything I'd like to do... Guess I better go Energy Test my Green Drink to see if that's what's Healthiest for my Body right now (we'll talk lots more about Energy Testing, Supplements, Food... and all sorts of Great Stuff on the new blog!)

Thanks so much for your continued interest in my little blogs.. it means so much to me!

Until Next Time
Light, Love & Laughter...

New Goodies for my Studio

I'm always excited to get new goodies for my studio, so it's not really a big surprise to me that I'm excited about my latest addition.. not only is my new Herb Scale very pretty, it is also very functional!

The new scale I just purchased is going to save me so much time on packing orders and creating new herbal mixes. I've been using it this past week and things have been moving so much smoother - I love it (and I'm sure my customers appreciate the quicker shipping as well!)

The old scale I had was a digital scale that I had lost the plug to, so I had to use batteries.. the problem was the scale would never turn off, so I was going through batteries like crazy. Plus the digital scale wasn't very cute, so I always put it away when I wasn't using it and there were a lot of days when I just couldn not find the scale no matter how badly I needed to pack and ship an order (I will not be missing those days.. ).

So my new scale, that is so pretty (and red, which you can't see from the picture) will be sitting on the file cabinet right next to my desk (for easy access) and of course, to make a lovely addition to my studio (I love how it's got an old vintage-style look to it!)

I love things that make me smile! What's making you smile today?

Until next time..

December Contest Winner

I just wanted to take a minute and post the winner of this month's contest... it's Heather! Please email me your shipping info so I can send your prize!

Since we are on the subject of contests I thought I would post a few that I've been entering. If you have any contests running or know of anyone else that does please feel free to post the info in the comments section! I love contests.. they are so much fun. Hopefully, from now on I'll be posting a monthly contest with different ways to enter and all sorts of different types of prizes... so be sure to come back and visit to check 'em out!

Contests Around The Web:
I'm sure there's tons more fun contests out there to enter, but those are just the top few I thought were really incredible! I would just like to mention as well that I don't get any thing for talking about these contests or posting their links on my blog..

Ok.. so I hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of the end of 2010. I'm so excited to see what 2011 brings (better blog content is on my list for sure.. it's time to really start blogging and see where it takes me!)

Until Next Time...

It's Monday.. How about a Contest!

It's a Beautiful Monday!

The day has just gone by so fast.. I can't believe it's almost time for dinner! I got to sleep in a bit this morning, which was very nice. Usually I'm up and out of the house pretty early to drop off the kids, but since they are  now officially on Holiday Break we get to take the mornings pretty slow... guess that's why the day is just flying by, there's no structure happening! Oh well.. it's good to just go with the flow sometimes and see where the day takes you.

I'm still on my cleansing and purging mission - today the focus is on my email inbox, which embarrassingly had over 20,000 emails in in. I easily get well over 100 emails a day and I've gotten very lazy and pretty much stopped deleting and organizing any of my emails. So in between bagging up things for donation and recycling I've been taking breaks at the computer and deleting old (very, very old) emails. So, now I'm down to about 12,000 - progress!

Since the kids had a day off today, and I needed a little break, I decided to put out some really big bowls and spoons along with a bunch of herbs, spices, flour and water, measuring cups and spoons and let the kids have fun making a potion! It's something I used to do when I was small and passing time in my Grandma's kitchen.. although when I would do it I would add ingredients and chant 'magic' words (think I was remembering a past life or what??) The kids had a blast making their potions and now that they're done I'm getting ready to clean and mop in the kitchen (this is also a perfect time for a special Full Moon Yule Floorwash too!)

Anyway.. while I was browsing online today I found this really cool contest from Vertical Response that I thought I'd share. There's some really amazing Apple Gift Card Prizes all just for entering a Template Design! If you decide to enter be sure to post a link, I'd love to see your design work! (I'm not getting anything for talking about the contest or the prizes, I just thought it was something fun to mention!)

So.. like I keep saying, lots of new changes are going to be up and coming.. they'll be happening slowly, but if you see things starting to look different don't say I didn't warn you!

Speaking of Change - have you decided on your 2011 Resolutions yet? Do you even do 'New Year' Resolutions? How about leaving a comment and letting me know (either here or on Facebook, I'll be posting the contest there as well) and I'll randomly choose a winner from everyone who left a comment!

Wanna know what the prize is?



The prize is going to be a Vintage Halloween Enchanted Art Curio... a large (5" long x 2 3/4" tall) Altered Art Tag that has been handcrafted (by me) using copies of Vintage Halloween Images, Ribbons, Glass & Pewter Beads and Spacers, Brads and String. 

I can only ship the prize within the United States! Sorry.. next time I'll do a prize where everyone can participate! So.. to enter all you have to do is either leave a comment here or on Facebook talking about what your 2011 New Years Resolutions are. The cut off date for the contest is going to be Wed. Dec 29th. The winner will be announced on Thursday Dec 30th!

Have a Beautiful Day... and Thanks so much for Playing!
