"I did want to mention one more thing. If you do want to paint or glaze, if you only do the top surface of the charm and leave the back untreated you can still add essential oils to the back of the piece. Oh, and for those who want to wear their…"

DIY- Boho/Hippie (or Magickal!) Essential Oil Diffuser Charms

Hey, everyone!Thought I would share this cool video about making your own essential oil diffuser charms and jewelry. Of course, these can be infused with your own energy and intent, just bless and consecrate materials and focus on your intention for each piece as you make them. You can also add other small charms, stamp designs or draw symbols or sigils into the clay.Hope you enjoy! See More

Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
My Goddess led me here. While researching Her connection with a certain God, I came across an article that was posted here. It answered most of my questions plus validated a few theories of my own. There's something here that I need to learn. That's all I know.
About Myself & My Interests..
I'm married with children: one human and three felines. A born and raised southern Appalachian with a knack for folk magic and kitchen witchery. I enjoy writing, reading, and art - collage, pastels, sketch, acrylic - as well as creating junk journals and working with clay and nature crafts. After almost 20 years of study and practice, I've been on some interesting paths, one of which has led me here.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
I began studying Wicca and witchcraft at the age of 26. Not long after, I met a young woman who was a practicing Wiccan. She gave me my first book on magical practice: Power of the Witch by Laurie Cabot. I learned a great deal from her, though our time together was brief. She passed away in 2012 from lung cancer. Her kindness, generosity, and honesty have stayed with me throughout my journey. I will forever be grateful to her for what she gave me. She helped place my foot firmly on my path. I will never forget her.
Authors and/or Books I appreciate
I'm an avid reader, so there are too many authors and books to list. I read a lot of fiction these days with the occasional historical novel or biography. I'm a fan of old-school horror mainly - Lovecraft, Machen, Bierce, Blackwood- but also love the more contemporary horror writers as well as enjoying some science fiction and fantasy. Every now and then an action-adventure type book by James Rollins or Michael Crichton suits my taste.
Musicians and/or Music I appreciate
I take music in small doses. I prefer instrumental pieces usually, but every now and then will opt for classic and alternative rock, blues or if I'm in a particularly good mood, funk or synth-pop.
Films and/or Film-Makers & Actors I appreciate
Again, too many to list here. A few favorites are Guillermo Del Toro, Tarantino and Rodriguez, Scorsese, Kubrick, Peter Jackson, FF Coppola, Tim Burton, Orson Welles, John Waters, Terry Gilliam, David Lynch and of course Hitchcock.
Artists and/or Art I appreciate
All-time favorites are Van Gogh, Klimt, and Monet. Also Frida Kahlo, Kinuko Y. Craft, Andy Warhol, Salvadore Dali, René Magritte, John William Waterhouse, John Atkinson Grimshaw, Edvard Munch, Raoul Dufy, Andy Goldsworthy, Hieronymus Bosch, Ron Mueck

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”

I began my book of shadows almost 20 years ago. It's been through a lot in that span of time, as have I, and it shows the wear and tear of the years. It's nothing special to look at, just an…
