Michigan Witches Ball 2010
I am very excited to be a sponsor for this great event! To find out more about one of Michigan's best parties, click the link above.
All sales are now being handled through my Etsy shop: www.splendidfish.etsy.com
Click on the link above to see what is currently available.
Don't worry, friends, it's still me behind the scenes!
I've added a new section called
When I create a new piece
of design work, it often happens that they come, much like a baby with a silver spoon in it's mouth, bearing a story. Unfortunately, when I sell a piece, the story is sometimes lost with it. I've decided to collect these stories into a section all
their own, for your enjoyment.
Don't forget to click on the BLUE WORDS anywhere on this site to enter
new worlds of mythic imagination.
Here are a few links to places I like to play. If you have a page that you think I might enjoy, let me know and I'll add a link here.
This is a great place to go and meet people, talk about this and that, argue, and trade ideas back and forth. I've been to several forums dealing with various areas of interest, but this is the one I go to most often. The people here are friendly and polite, without being a bunch of mushheads. Click on the banner to go see.
This is, I do believe, the numero uno place (next to Pagan Forum
, that is) to go for information about the practices, philosophy, and ideas behind all things pagan. If you can't find the information you seek here, then you'll just have to figure it out yourself. Click on the banner to take a peek at what's available.
I'm proud to be a WitchVox sponsor.
This site, The Pagan Porch, is rapidly becoming one of my favorite places on the net. It was pointed out to me by one of my friends from Pagan Forum as a site of interest. The focus of the group is Homesteading - the do-it-yourself lifestyle that brings you closer to the production of the things you use. If you are interested in farming, raising goats or chickens, making beer, cooking, or any type of doing for yourself, this is THE place to be.
I met Marissa on Pagan Forum
, and she introduced me to the people over at The Pagan Porch
(see above). Now, she has a blog. She and her family are working at building up a homestead. The are building buildings, raising goats, making cheese, and growing food - one heck of a lot of work, but it's the kind of work we all dream of doing - and they're really doing it!
Check our her blog and follow the ups and downs of the family farm. This is really good stuff! They're a truly amazing group of people. I wish I'd have had a family like this...
Ya know, there are an awful lot of good artists around. And the internet has opened up the doors for them to display their work. One of the very best I've ever seen is Kay Steele
I am, literally, in awe of what she can do - and the really amazing thing is that, every time I see a new work from her, she's gotten better!
If you like fantasy art - or just plain art - you really owe it to yourself to stop by and see her display on Deviant Art. This is not to be missed.
Maythe is another friend I made over at Pagan Forum
. She's just started up a new blog, sort of as an exercise in learning. She's a Heathen, and she's learning as much about the practices of this ancient European group as she can. this blog is a place where you can follow her research and her thoughts as she goes deeper and deeper in her studies.
She's also a very good writer, and just fun to read! Stop by and say howdy.
Here's a link to someone else I met on Pagan Forum
, Jenn Korth. Jenn has a website called Working With Art to Connect to Our Higher Self
. And you know how I feel about ART!
If the examples she shows on her website, and the pieces I've seen on the forum are any indication of her skills (and what else could they be?), I think Jenn has a great future. I know I'm going to be keeping an eye on her work - you should too.
Musings of a Kitchen Witch
And yet another
friend from the famous Pagan Forum
Thalassa's blog, Musings of a Kitchen Witch is a great place. She has sections on herbs, crafting, Civil War reenacting (I'd like to get into that...), and general paganism. But the best part is the parenting section. Check this out - kids are the most important thing. If you want to change the world, begin by improving relations with children!
Hey, looky here! I'm making friends in new places! This is a friend and colleague from Etsy, Night Lily Design
Night Lily has an wild imagination. She makes: Fairy Wings (wearable), Costumes and Clothing, Jewelry, Drawings (such as the Jaguar on the left, done in pastels), and she also sells Belly Dancing Lessons.
Click on the picture of the big cat to go to her Etsy store, or check out her blog at: http://shinyshimmy.blogspot.com/.
And another friend from Etsy - Jupiter Psyche
I was looking all over for an image of Hermes to hang in my Alchemical Laboratory, and when I saw jupiter Psyche's work on Etsy, I knew I'd found the artist who could give me exactly what I needed. She did an absolutely smashing job! I can't recommend her work highly enough - she does Original Artwork and Prints as well as Jewelry.
