I really need to list some more magickal goodies on Etsy.. I've just been so busy trying to list the mundane stuff on eBay... I need a better balance!

I'm off to go do the laundry and ponder better balance... we'll see where it takes me.

National Hug Day : January 21, 2009

National Hug Day

This IS an actual holiday. no joke. so on this day hug
as many people/animals as you can! It's the best day ever! You don't have to
have the day off or be completely free. You can hug people at work, school, and
at home. don't be afraid to hug a stranger. i can't control the price of hugs.
Only you can! Hug everyone you meet/see on January 21 and maybe you'll even be
hugged back. OK so really this should be called INTERnational hug day because it
is celebrated everywhere but when i created this event i didn't realize that.
Don't believe what other groups are saying national hug day is really on the
21st not the 16th or the 1st or any other day. Don't believe me? look it
up.SPREAD AWARENESS!!!

1. Accept the invite
2. Invite all your friends! SPREAD
AWARENESS!!
3. Upload pictures of you and your friends hugging!

Happy National Hug Day!

Spirit Journeys with Little Faerie Tales

My friend Joanna is doing some really fun creative classes over at her blog Little Faerie Tales. The beautiful thing about her classes is that she shows you ALL the supplies you're going to need and then helps walk you through the parts you may not be so familiar with (in case you're some what of a closet-artist).

So.. I started the Spirit Journey's Workshop #2 last night and put the finishing touches on it this morning. I was really proud of myself for starting a project and finishing it in less than 24 hours!




If you have a bit of extra time over the next few days feel free to join in on the Spirit Journey and be sure to send your picture to Joanna before the 23rd!
Have a Wonderful Day!

The Beauty of the Full Moon..

Life has still had it's moments over the past few weeks, but I feel like the dark cloud that was over my home and my family has been lifted... and I am very lovingly grateful to this month's bright, beautiful Full Moon.

My husband and I created a beautiful Full Moon Ritual to Celebrate the Need for Change in our lives.. to show how grateful we are for everything that's going well in our lives, to show how grateful we are for each other.

The next day I did my own private Ritual and just spent time talking with the Goddess.

Life is so strage sometimes, so simple and yet so complex. Just a slight shifting in perception is the only thing that needs to happen to make everything right again.. it's just finding the right 'trigger' to help the shift happen that can be a challenge.

I'm so happy that I've found my trigger and I've shown my husband (who is not pagan) a way to explore his own triggers. My house feels like a different place this past week. Everyone is so happy and playful. It already feels like Spring outside, which is like a personal gift to me from the Goddess Herself - allowing the Dark to be lifted from my daily life earlier than expected has helped me tremendously in making a positive shift.

I've still been spending time de-cluttering and cleaning, but have actually shifted to organizing.. which, to me, makes all the difference in the world! Decluttering only works when you have lots of things to throw away, I love my things and don't want to get rid of them. I do, however, want some organization to things, which slowly I'm achieving. Everyday I try to clean-out and organize another area in my home.. it feels Wonderful! I feel so much happier, lighter and (the best part) able to allow the new things I need into my life.

Perfecting the Art of Allowing is really what my focus is going to be for the New Year. It feels wonderful to decide I'd like something and then have it manifest in my life, sometimes overnight. Everyday has become an adventure.. what can I do next?

It makes life very fun....

CONTEST WINNER!

A while back I bought this really cool bucket.. the handle is broken, but I figure I can make a new one if the need arises. I really like the witch on it -- flying through the midnight air, something I'd love to be doing right now! I never knew what I was going to do with the bucket, but as I was collecting the names for the contest drawing tonight I saw the bucket and knew it had a new purpose. My Midnight Witch will now and forever be known as the Official Contest Cauldron (it is sort of shaped like a cauldron.. well sort of).



So, tonight I added all the names to the Bucket and had my Daughter pull out a name.... the Winner is:
Annie Keleher
Annie, if you could email me your mailing address I'll get your Prize out for you first thing in the morning.. my email is: sagemoonste at yahoo dot com
Congrats on the Win!!
