Creativity-Pagan Blog Project

Creativity for me, is one of the best things about being a witch.  I get to create my own rituals and adapt them for the time of year, my mood, my desires, my needs!!

There are so many ways to be creative in ritual and spellcasting.  Writing our own rituals, our own spells.  Making our own altar decorations, our own altars for that matter. 

Personally, I love to crochet so I have crocheted the bags that hold my runes, and each of my tarot decks.  I know that Spirit knows these bags were made with love and the best of intent so it doesn't matter that they are not of the traditional materials for storing scrying objects. 

Likewise, I make my own candles.  Sometimes I add scents or herbs, even on occasion a crystal chip or two.  These candles make my rituals all the more meaningful, even if sometimes my candles seem to burn at 10x the normal rate.  Its all good, Spirit and I can laugh at it because we know it was my best effort. 

I also am looking forward to moving so I can better decorate my space for each esbat, sabbat and I'm thinking even moon cycle.  I know in my heart its time for me to start dong a lot more nocturnal and lunar workings.  Its where I'm being guided and I am full of new ideas for this branch of my path.

I'm truly looking  forward to having a front door big enough to decorate with a wreath of pine cones that I can then wrap with ribbon and decorations appropriate to each esbat, sabbat and full moon.  

Eventually, I would like to make my own set of runes, but that's probably a few years off.  For right now, decorating my apartment, crocheting blankets to match my rituals and leaving them out, even making window decorations to match my rituals will keep me plenty busy.

And of course once I move and have some room, there will be space to have my own herb garden and to make many shaped and molded candles for different rituals.  The possibilities are truly endless!!

Blessed Be!!


  1. I'm anxious to see what you have planned for your move, actually become reality! :)

  2. Great post! I was drawn to your blog from the words "Pagan" and "Sobriety" in the title. I am an alcoholic and a Pagan, struggling through the former each day. Looking forward to reading more and will click to follow your blog as soon as I post this. Bright Blessings.

  3. Thank-you both so much!
    Hopefully when I finally move I will be able to at least borrow a digital camera and put up pictures as I make the place my own. Blessed Be!
