I sit here on the eve of yet-another-blizzard this grey Sunday in mid February and dream of sunshiny Spring days with green grass, new-leaf-green leaves just beginning to unfurl on trees and early bulbs beginning to bloom. Alas, it will be some weeks before any of this comes to pass. I content myself to dream and plan while perusing seed catalogs, and garden magazines.
This year will be a time of transition for me in my professional life. I have felt it coming for some time and know in my gut that this is the year. I am both excited and scared out of my wits! My focus this year will be on expanding my Services, searching out new venues for my Art and Craft, and Teaching.
To this end, I ask that you keep me in mind…
~If you have a desire to begin, clean up, revamp a garden and would like guidance/assistance.
~If you would like to spruce up your entry with gardens or decorative plantings in pots, or seasonal displays
~If you are selling your house and would like to increase curb appeal
~If you have purchased a new home and would like to make it your own with plantings or an attractive entry
~If you are looking for unique nature-inspired art and crafts for home or garden
~If you know of any venues that would welcome my art and crafts

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. “
~Roald Dahl, The Minpins
What were your dreams when you were a child? What did you Make-Believe? Did you imagine yourself a Faerie Queen, a Traveling Minstrel or a Pirate on the Seven Seas? Were you dressed in Tiara, Wings and Glitter, or in Gypsy Turban and Shawl? Was your home in a Castle, an Oak Tree, a Seashell, or a Stone Cottage in a verdant Forest? What happened to your dreams as you grew a little older? What did you imagine your life would be like? What job would you have? Would you become a well-known author, artist, scientist? Would you travel the world, live in a bustling cosmopolitan city, or a charming cottage?
What are your dreams now? How far from those childhood dreams is the reality of your life? What would you be willing to do to bring those dreams in to existence?
Join me in the first workshop in the series, Embracing a Magickal Life. You are invited to cast off the Uniform and Mask of your everyday existence and come dressed in whatever your True and Magickal Self longs to wear. I will guide you through a journey to connect with your Childhood Dreamer, after which you will journal any thoughts, impressions or visions you may have experienced. Everyone will be encouraged to Share, Discuss, Dream Aloud. You will be given Examples and Ideas of ways in which you may begin to bring Magick into your life. Everyone will create a small, portable Altar specifically focused on Manifesting these Dreams into Reality. All materials will be supplied, but you may bring any photos, magazine images, writing, small stones or crystals, statues, etc. that you would like to include on your Altar.
Here are some photos I took of the Altar I made:
