Building a Mini Altar

Well, I finally have the bigger bedroom and it's all organized. My only thoughts are on how to set up the table I'm going to use as my altar. It's small...Like probably 1.5ft across squared type a deal...and it has to be moved before using it, so no fancy set ups to stay at all times. I do have a large area set up on the one half of my dresser though that can stay permanently, so am thinking of just covering the table with this black fabric I found, then adding in smaller candles and things that won't fall over as easy, and bringing in items I may need as I get things ready.

How do you all deal with small altars and/or having to move them? I miss my big painted desk I use to have LOL

Happy Faerie Day

Technically I'm like 10 minutes late, but it's been a long and busy day unfortunately. I'm noticing rituals and things are always agreed upon but never actually carried out with my roommate...Kind of annoying, so I think once (if I do) move into the bigger bedroom, I'm just going to find something for an altar and do my own just without the incense because of the furballs.

Today I so wanted to do something big for my Faerie Friends...but unfortunately (although I am enjoying myself) I'm staying the weekend at my parent's so do't have anything much and what I do have for my tools and such is packed up...So, a little blog post to show my love for the Fae.

Happy Litha!

Kind of late, but I believe we're celebrating "tomorrow"/tonight anyway. This is one of my favourite holidays, along with Samhain, for it is the height of life and right beside my birthday on the 23rd, and Faerie Day on the 24th!
I hope you are all enjoying this Summer! I will be on more once things settle down some more and want to thank everyone who sent me well wishes to my last post. It means a lot to me and I will be journaling and returning to my Witch School meditation and other studies to help me feel more centered.

Life Frustrates Me

So, I've been extremely absent and hate that. I haven't done anything 'witchy' in weeks, barely even anything artsy in the magickal areas. I'm so far behind on my Pagan Art Journal pieces and with all this postal strike nonsense, I'm feeling horrible on making some people wait for pieces I've done as part of a group project.

I somehow remembered last minute that tonight was the full moon and jumped onto The Stone Circle just in time for their online ritual. It was needed. I need to start doing my Wicca Online courses again, especially the meditation practices now that I've quit smoking again (On day 5 now) and I miss the study. I don't know why it seems like I have no time for these things when I'm not working yet, and other than some house cleaning and playing with the rats, I really don't have any serious responsibilities at the moment...I should really try and work on catching up on the art journaling since all my supplies are here (although I need more white paint soon) and to start my Wicca Online course over....Sucks losing my grades and beginning again, but it's been too long for me to feel comfortable just jumping back in mid-lessons. I hope one day to be able to afford the full membership and access all the courses they offer. hmmmm I need to find my notebooks with some of the stuff I copied out too...

I feel out of touch with everything. In some ways I feel like I'm making progress and working towards things, but mostly I feel like a fumbling fool right now. I miss my hubby, I miss my kitties, I miss the quiet country air...I may have only lived there a little over a year, but it is my home....and I miss it a lot...Depression has been nipping at me, and I need to try and focus on other things to keep it at bay. I also need to try and start eating healthier and exercising again...This extra weight will just not do LOL I just feel lost lately....
