    Turning the family farm into a magickal farm and sanctuary, so far so good.
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Familiar enough to understand the thought-intention-execution reality. Enough to know that the practices of our ancient ancestors were based on intuition and senses that many modern humans no longer possess, and enough to know that we are surrounded by power that can be tapped and focused.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Anything and everything I can get my hands on from Siberian shamanism to Native American ancestor worship,to Ayurvedic healing and all threads between, seeking patterns and similarities as well as exploring differences therein and reasons thereof.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes. I suppose I could say that in a way that would be consistent with most definitions of 'traditional'.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    It means returning to the basic essences of our ancestral power beliefs. It means realizing that when humans began using witchcraft, it was considered a natural course and process. It also means staying away from what is nothing more than trendy window dressing. Traditional witchcraft does not fight against the natural energy flows of the cosmos from galaxies to atoms, but rather employs those flows to manifest change.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I performed my first candle ritual when I was 11, since then I have read, listened, and learned all I can and applied it to my art.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Your front page disclaimer. This questionnaire is also making points.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I believe that a gathering of similar interests add to the palette of potential. Just learning the thoughts and views of others is a wonderful thing. Contributions may include ideas and applications of natural elements that may be different from practices of others, in essence, variety.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    On occasion I peruse Spells of Magic.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I have an artistic creativity that allows me to combine woods, bones, feathers, stones and crystals, herbs, writing and letter forms (including sigil work) and ritual to create magical items.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I am absolutely useless working with animal spirits and totems. While I love animals and they seem to love me, I cannot seem to connect with them on a higher level.

  1. You are the Queen of Wands Onyx😄
  2. Indeed I shall, and I hope the storm clouds will have cleared by then...
  3. Jeez Khundekling. I just posted a whiny post about personal doldrums, then I find this one with two replies from a couple of my favorite members. First, thanks for picking up the detritus of the filthy human herd. I sometimes feel as though we are custodians to a world filled with errant children. Second, I do believe that your efforts are the reason for your success. A philosophy that we all embrace and practice. I haven't been active here for a while and when I do return in search of...something, here it is. Thank you my friend, you have applied a practical boot to my spiritual backside.
  4. Sorry I haven't been very present of late. I find this new format difficult to work with. That said, I am wondering if anyone else is feeling as though they are being drained of their very essence. Like a hollow bone, dry with the marrow sucked out. lately I feel like I am blindfolded running backward up a hill with only one leg. Everything is such a struggle. I continue to be artistically inspired, in fact I am teaching myself woodcarving but when it comes to actually crafting I can't get moving. I need to go into the woods and get centered and gather materials but I just can't seem to be bothered. Working magick feels like a chore and despite the desire to embrace it, the energy just isn't there. I went into the rock shop in search of a large smokey quartz for a staff head I am designing and I found 3 good candidates, but when I picked them up, nothing. I walked out empty handed and the piece remains a chunk of wood and a couple of crude drawings. Maybe I just need to increase my morning cabernet intake.🍷
  5. I too tried to play some the old text RPGs and gave up in a short while. When they were all we had they were awesome. A few years ago I purchased an old Atari 2600 online with a bagful of game cartridges. It was very nostalgic but I had forgotten how some of the games were nearly impossible to play with those old joysticks!
  6. I spent too much time with Zork. It took me weeks to figure out how to climb the telephone pole to find the bird nest. It seemed so amazing at the time. To me nothing compares to face to face gaming.
  7. So much gaming is done online anymore although there are some pretty amazing DMs out there. I haven't rolled a D20 in years but I gave been painting minis and crafting terrain since the 1980s. I guess I ahve always lived in that world and will probably not leave anytime soon. Here in Montana we have a few game shops with playing spaces and hosted encounters but it seems that people are more into the wargaming or card games which are fine, but I tend to lean toward the traditional dungeon crawl.
  8. Your work is always a treat to see Onyx.
  9. Some very fine wands are made of combinations of woods and crystals along with other elements who's resonations allow maximum energy focus. Some are custom made to the practitioner with considerations of birthdate, elemental afiliations, animal totems etc. and crafted in traditional ways with love for nature and life. Some can be powerful healing tools and some can be powerful cursing instruments. A custom woand does not have to be expensive, just effective and beautiful.
  10. Just cheap acrylic craft paints. They mix and blend well and virtually every painting technique can be applied with them. The finished piece then gets a matte or gloss varnish. Back in the day it was all enamel but thinners and clean up were terrible.
  11. Thank you onyx. This dragon is only 3 inches tall including his base.
  12. I know Games Workshop! I love Orks and Dwarves. Our maps are totally imaginary. I started that when I was a kid. Soak a piece of paper in coffee to 'age' it, scorch the edges, then go after it with paint and inks and cover it with runes or a made up language. I did this the first time after seeing the Rankin/Bass Hobbit cartoon and Bilbo's map. Later I would make them for D&D campaigns. I also made scrolls and spell books.
  13. I have never truly outgrown it. We home school my granddaughter and I am responsible for her art instruction so I have also been showing her how to make 'ancient' maps.
