Holiday Witches…

Happy, Happy Friday WoodSprites and Witches!

I am super excited to share with you that An October Monday has there first witch primitive Yule/Winter Solstice pieces!  This may not seem like a big deal to most but for those of us who may celebrate the season on a more magickal path it can be hard to find those decorations that are just right for you.  These two whimsical pieces are sure to help bring a truly magickal vibe to any space.

Available @ An October Monday Etsy & www.anoctobermonday.com

Available @ An October Monday Etsy & http://www.anoctobermonday.com

Both designs are available at An October Monday Shop and An October Monday Etsy. I am hoping to create at least one more of my own design, these two are wonderful stencils I ran across and I was delighted and I had to create something with them.  

We are also working on some Celtic, Triple Goddess and the 4 Elements ornaments and we hope to have them out by early next week.  So if your looking for those truly unique Yule gifts come visit An October Monday for a spell and see if we can create something magickal for your holiday season ♥

We also create custom orders so if you can’t find that purr~fect gift feel free to contact us at: octobermonday71@gmail.com or find us on Facebook and send us a message.

Until next time…

Beautiful New Portable Altars!

Merry Thursday WoodSprites and Witches!

Just a quick blog about An October Monday’s new portable altars.  These hand crafted altars are made of pine, designs are wood burned, vinegar stained, legs are painted with Milk Paint and then sealed with a water based polyurethane.  The are 12 x 11, they stand 7 inches and the best part is the legs come off!  They are the perfect size for slipping into a backpack making them very convenient to take on the fly and just the right size to keep out of sight for those of you in the broom closet 😉 

We have two beautiful styles but can of course create a custom piece just for you!  Our two beauty’s are a stunning Tree of Life, stained with an apple cider vinegar and hand painted leaves, the second is a lovely Art Nouveau inspired pentacle altar, complete with Le Chat Noir, the stain is a combination of white and red wine vinegar, giving it a beautiful antique feel.

It’s Friday!

Happy Friday WoodSprites and Witches!

I hope you all had a wickedly wonderful Halloween! We kept it low key this year, stayed in with my clan and handed out candy to the little beggars.  Went to a beautiful Samhain ceremony hosted by Ms. Heather Killen of Violet Flame Gifts.  Tonight my wee clan will be honoring our beloved dead and remembering those loved one who passed this year and the years before.  This week our family lost a dear woman, Robert’s bio~Mom, so we will be saying our good~byes to her tonight.

Today I will be shipping out an order to Oregon and we will be working on some new awesome travel size altars!  I have some other new projects in the works, such as; Wheel of the Year, Brigid’s Cross and some Yule pieces!  We will post pictures as they come along.

But this post is not so much to plug the shop, but rather to just ramble on a bit…

The time of reflecting has begun, time to review our harvest for the year and to clean out that what does us no good.  To borrow from Game of Thrones, Winter is Coming…

This past year has been full of many good times and some very hard times.  I have made wonderful new friends, attended Earth Warriors and have grown my little business a wee bit more.  But with the sweet comes the sour (yes I borrowed that too)  This past year we lost my sister~in~law and now my mother~in~law, Robert lost his job and we may be moving, yet again…  

I have ranged from wicked witch to warrior woman mode a lot this year…  I long to be the gentle healer/teacher but it seems that those days are reserved only for my kiddos, maybe as it should be.  I never thought myself to be on a warriors path but maybe I have underestimated my role in this world?  I know one thing is for sure my shadow work (work of the soul) will be very powerful and intense this winter.  

One thing I am always reminded of; We are always growing, changing and learning.  I suppose if the day comes when I can no longer marvel at life and all it’s beautiful complications, I should worry… In fact for the first time I am not afraid of the unknown that lies ahead, I am ready to face it with the heart of a warrior, my sword in hand…  My heart filled with the love of my wee clan.  This is the lesson I have learned this year, there is nothing more important than those you love.

With that said, I shall conclude my ramblings and be thankful we have made it through one more week!

 Blessed Be, may you be with the ones you love this weekend ♥

Until next time…

Hold on to Your Happy, Laugh till it hurts and Live in Love,
