Another pic for the traditionalist

Snow Fawn in Black & White
My mind sees a million things when I start walking and snapping photos.
 I see so many details with an artists eye that most people pass by.
Open your senses to all that is there, and one day you will wonder how you missed it all for so long.
Practice the art of observation, and soon, you too will see purple fawns and so much more.

PICTURES DON'T LIE, (or do they?)

Proof positive that I really do live in an "enchanted forest".  An early snow storm and some photo editing fun make for some Magick.  If anyone would care to use these photos for crafty projects, please feel free and enjoy.  I am thinking the obvious, Christmas cards.

Charming Charms

I like to create charms, as they are quicker to assemble than full pieces of jewelry, they do not have to match everything you wear, and the recipient does not have to feel obligated to wear them!  I made this one for a friend who is going thru a difficult time right now. It will be a reminder to him that "this too shall pass"  I call it "Make Peace with Your Demons"

Feline Night Visions

I captured this pic of my kitten and her night vision.  This mystical animal was given to me by my dear friend, Sue.  What a GIFT!!

Sharing Inspiration

I love doing collage work and using my own pics to make altered art.  The artwork that inspired this blog, please enjoy!

Boil and Bubble, Toil and Trouble

My dear "Hubby" and I are addicted junk collectors, with a keen eye for the strangest and the rustiest.  We picked up this cool "cauldron" for a great yard decoration.


We humans can learn a lesson from our wise animal friends.  They really know how to relax and live in the moment.  Pics of my two sweet, wonderful cats at peace in their world!

A Law of Attraction Lesson

Since I first heard of "The Law of Attraction", I have been fascinated with the subject.  I have read every book, e-book, blog etc. that I could find. One of the more challenging aspects (to me anyway) was to let go of your fear surrounding money. That feeling of scarcity, never having enough, all of that.

Sometimes I backslide and say to myself, is this real, am I too lazy to do the mental work involved, or do I sub-consciously just not believe it.  Recently I proved to myself that I really am starting to get it.  At the Pagan festival that my friend Ametrine and I attended on Sunday (see previous post) we found a vendor selling wonderful rocks and crystals. One of my admitted weaknesses, I have been a rock hound all my life.

So, I know, get to the point.  I always ramble when something is exciting.  So, anyway, we were admiring all the wonderful wares and we made our purchases. Before leaving the festival, we went back to see if we wanted to buy anything else.  There were two crystals, a citrine point and a smoky quartz that were calling my name.  Neither of the stones had a price tag. I picked them up, handed them to the vendor and said, "I will take these".  I did not ask the price, I was not afraid to commit to something that I wanted, and I had NO FEAR that I could not afford the items.  It did not sink in to me until later, that I really have absorbed some valuable lessons regarding the Law of Attraction.  This will be a great motivator for me when I begin to backslide yet again.

I hope this post makes sense to someone besides me, and enjoy the pics of my treasures!

A Pagan Day

Friends + Wine + Crystals = Natural Magick
The Sacred Crossroads Association organized a Pagan Pride festival at our beautiful local park.  The gathering was small, but very enjoyable.  There were some wonderful musicians, a cute belly-dancer, and some great vendors.  My friend, Ametrine and I attended and came home with some cool magickal goodies.  Hop on over to her blog "The Witchy Pooch Is In" at www.ametrineknowingwillow.blogspot.com for some pics from the day.

I appreciated the intent of the gathering, which I believe was to help educate people about different spiritual paths.  However, I did not care for the slogan they chose.  Pagan and Proud.  It had a defiant tone to me and conjured up images of protestors and stone-throwers. (of which there were none, I am happy to say).  Too "in your face" for me, just as I do not care to have the "other" organized religions telling me I am going to burn in hell if I do not follow their ways.

Okay that was my short rant for today and the opinions expressed belong solely to Cytrine Love Ravenfire and not the blogspot venue.
