I haven't had much chance to blog lately because my mother has to move and I have to help her. I've been up to my ears in work and mom stuff, but this weekend my girls (Chrystal and Amber) and I are off to our favorite place in the world, 10 Mile, to see our favorite sea critters Searose and Jasmine and Jewels. We will be celebrating Litha, otherwise known as the summer solstice. For this occation I purchased some goodies from my favorite White Witch, Nancy, at the White Witch Shoppe on Etsy: Midsummers Nights Eve Ritual Kit for Litha and Summer Solstice.

Celebrating with my friends will be the perfect retreat and just long enough to start feeling good again.

Last week I ordered a gift for my dear freind Amber, who never reads my blog. :) Thank goodness, cause I haven't given her the gift yet, and here I am blogging about it. I was just too excited to keep it to myself! The gift is so perfect for Amber and so well made. What I like the most about it is that it's so big. It's about 2 inches tall and you can really hide some stuff in that locket! I love the painting too, it's so pretty and it kind-of looks link Amber too. I had them change out the red crystal for an emerald colored one because emerald is her birth stone (mine too). I paid $20 plus shipping for this lovely locket and it was worth every penny! You can find many more lovely lockets and pendants just like this on ETSY at
SpellboundWings .

I was recently included in a couple of treasuries on Etsy:


"Just keepin' it clean"



"Pink skies at night"

Today I posted 4 wedding broom / handfasting besoms. One of each color and one broom with all the colors mixed. These brooms come with custom hand-carved bride and groom names and date of the wedding.
Throughout my 12+ years of broom making hundreds of people have purchased our brooms for use in their wedding/handfasting ceremonies and I have found that this ritual is practiced in many different cultures.

I recently purchased a collection of oil scents from Velvet Moon Bathery on ETSY called "The Art of Poisoning". A 5 set fragrance of the following scents: Posion Noir, Arsenic and Lace, Belladonna, Absinthe, Death By Chocolate.
My favorite 2 scents in this collection are Arsenic and Lace which the artist describes as "The classy lady who is sweet and seductive, yet malicious and deadly. Many take caution as to not fall victim to the death web she weaves .The classic and nostalgic fragrance of Gardenia Blossoms with soft notes of amber and vanilla." and Belladonna, described as "A fragrance that captures the flowering and poisonous beauty of Deadly Nightshade with an irresistible sweet temptation Dark floral notes of Violets, Lilacs and Jasmine blended with a hint of woody Fig topped with sweet notes of tantalizing black berry and apple blossom".
Both my favorite scents smell much different in the 1/32 oz sample bottle than on my skin, I was so suprised at that and the fact that they last all day!
I can't wait to try out another of her lovely scent collections and maybe get a bottle of my favorites. I LOVE THIS STUFF!

How cool! My HEARTH BROOM was featured on the front page of the MY HANDMADE REGISTRY website today! I love that. I had no idea about this site, but it's an alternative way to register for baby showers and weddings etc. using all items that are handmade by friends. What an awesome idea! This particular registery was created by fellow ETSY artist KAREN LORENC - Colorful Stoneware Pottery. The MY HANDMADE REGISTY website was featured on the ETSY BLOG: THE STORQUE in an spotlight called "Handmade Weddings: Off-Road Wedding Gift Guide". Cool networking!

I added something new to my shop today, Ostrich Feather Dusters with decorative leather handles in a variety of decorative colors: black, blue, green, gray and burgandy.
Ostrich feathers are awesome for dusting they attract dust because of the bird feather oil. If you have a special request in color combo please ask, I have a variety of leather colors to choose from, the ones I have listed are just a few.

I was cruising around Etsy a few weeks ago looking to collect some favorites and I found this cute little shop on ETSY:

I instantly fell in love and I convinced the owner (Nancy) to do a trade with me. I got my loot today and I love it! She makes the best candles ever! They smell so good and all of her sparkling spell powders are made with the best quality oils, organic herbs, and resins. I highly recommend that you check it out. Here's a pic of the lovely candles I got. Go there and don't forget to mention that I sent you!

In The Beginning...

Well, I don't know much about this blogger stuff, but I am willing to learn. It seems like it could be a great tool for my broom business and to keep friends and family up to date with my life.

BEST DAY EVER!! -------------->

Today I was featured on the front page of ETSY for like 2 seconds or something. I don't know exactly how that works, but I'm going to look into it because WOW! I got so many messages and I made a sale right away.
The mix of colors is: rust, natural and black broom corn.
