Oh Monday, Monday…

Merry Monday WoodSprites!

Just a quick post today, have lots to do.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 

Last week was very emotional for us.  We gathered with family (which was long overdue) to honor Robert’s sister Becky.  It was bittersweet to come together with family to say goodbye to someone we all love so dearly.  It made me realize we need to cherish all those we love everyday, we never know who much time we have with them.

Our wee clan made it home Friday evening and we spent a lovely night gathered around our kitchen table sharing stories of life and all the things we love.  Evie had some wish paper and her daddy and her wrote messages to Becky and sent them to the heavens… It was a beautiful moment shared between the two of them.

Saturday night Robert an I went to our first local event, the Earth Warriors Spring Bash.  We were able to just let the daily grind of life go away for a few hours.  We met a few wonderful folks and got to listen to a great band Roger Drawdy and the Firestarters.  We had a great night and it was very much needed.

Robert and I were able to put together a few items for the event’ silent auction to help raise money for the Earth Warriors Festival coming up in September.  Here’s a peek at what we donated.

Re-Purposed Bottle for holding magical tinctures and such!


We had a more masculine bottle made for the Pan basket but for some reason I must have not snapped a picture.  Each basket also had a rustic little wooden star candle holder and candle.  I wish I would have had more time to put into the baskets but there is always next year 😉

This week I am working on a few new wood-crafts!   I am hoping to have them done by Wednesday and of course I will share pictures here!  I will also be adding more items at An October Monday Zazzle Shop!  I have a Viking tee shirt design I created for my oldest son!  So if you’re looking for some unique tee’s for the summer festivals head on over and check our shop!  And as always you can find all our wood-crafts at An October Monday Etsy Shop!  

Well time to fly, have much to do on the magical Monday, may magic fill your day too!

Until next time,

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

Another Magical Monday

Merry Monday WoodSprites!

Well the start of spring has brought a lot of happenings our way.  Some good and some bittersweet.  First, I want to say thank you for the kinds words I received about my sister-in-law on her passing.  We will be gathering this week with family to honor her life and to start the healing process.  She was very loved and will be missed by all her knew her.

Also, we are honored to be donating a few of our crafty items to Earth Warriors, “Luck of the Irish – EWF Spring Bash 2014“. I am working on a very handsome Celtic Stag design for a personal altar/table, a couple of Moonlight Mixer Kitchen Wands and beautiful bottles for keeping herbal waters and such. These items will be part of a raffle or silent auction, along with many other great items!  We are super excited to be plugging into our local community events and groups!  What a blessing for us.

If you are in the central Ohio area and want more information please click the link to visit the Earth Warriors website. 

Now for all you non-wood magical minded folk, An October Monday has a brand new line of tee’s and bags (and more to come!) in our new An October Monday Zazzle Shop!  So if you are looking for one of a kind tee’s for the summer please hop on over and check them out! Here’s a peek at what you’ll find:


Moonlight Meditation Womens Tee Perfect for the yoga loving witch!


Witchstock Mens Tee Great for everyday casual wear!


Witch ~ The Original TreeHugger Tote. Great for shopping, heading to beach or to festivals!

We will be adding many more items over the next few weeks so please do come back and visit.  And as always, I will post when new items are up in either our Etsy Shop or Zazzle Shop here on the blog and our Facebook Page. 

Remember you can also connect with An October Monday on our Facebook Page… So if you haven’t what are you waiting for?  

Well time to fly, I have a lot of things to do this week.  I hope to hop on here again before the week is up but if not I will return next Monday!

Until next time,

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