Time for changes

With me coming down with a little cold and stuck here in bed the only thing I can do is to think about changes in my life, videos, and on this blog. So in a few hours there will hopefully be a new layout and hopefully I will be able to start doing more things on here. Like reviews of products from witchie shops, info on some basic witchcraft tools and maybe my views on certain topics to do with paganism.

With my YouTube channel, i am hoping to delete a few more videos and redo them as to be honest, they were crap lol. Also wanting to start doing some how to videos and more things like that but i honestly cant remember what they were lol. I am also hoping to get a new camera. maybe a camcorder of some sort so i can do better videos (hopefully) without worrying about the time limit. My fujifilm camera is brilliant for taking photos, but not so great for videos or doing both.

In my life, i am hoping to get back on this healthy eating plan and lose more weight, get over some fears of mine and get myself back to being some what healthy..physically and mentally.
There maybe a possibility that i have the reverse of SAD which can happen to people but it is very rare. before i came down with the cold i was feeling really depressed and kept thinking some horrible thoughts, also having trouble sleeping and this may be what i have. but i have to wait and see as it could be the depression after winter, which has risen this it could be that or summer SAD. This is why i made the tincture, to help me with these thoughts and feelings.

New passion: Herbal Tinctures

Herbal tinctures have been on my mind for a while now and I was always researching up on how to make them and what they do etc.
So last night I got the urge to make one, a lavender tincture. I have been slightly scared to make one of these because I didn't know if I could do it plus I didn't know what herb to use.
Now I have to wait 5 weeks to see if it turns out alright and yes I will be making an entry about that lol, after 1 day you can already see the colour changing it is so interesting to see :P

Imbolc is coming up soon, people normally celebrate it on the 1st/2nd February. I like to celebrate these festivals with 3 days, so I will be celebrating it on the full moon which is on 30th January up to 1st February.
I know I will be meditating within the 3 days, also some spring cleaning (I hope) and maybe a nice walk and hopefully I will find something nice that represents the festival :)

Anyways, I thought to come on here and share this and the incense (see other entry) and to say that I hope you all have a wonderful Imbolc :) (and if you celebrate anything else on that day then I hope you have a wonderful day)

Imbolc Incense

Finally made my Imbolc incense, didn't think I would do it as my coffee grinder hadn't arrived, but it did today so I made some incense to try it out :)

Didn't really use any measurements, just took a wild guess with everything..Sometimes things turn out better like that :P
Anyways, here is what I put in the incense in case anyone wants to use it :) Enjoy

Things just need to take time

Really should be asleep right now, but I just had to come on here and write about this.

As you all probably know my passion for making homemade bath products is starting to get bigger and little bit more better than when I first started these things, I have decided that I should end up selling these products. I have tried this before and always rushed into too fast and always fell flat on my face. But this time I am gonna try and take this slowly and make sure that everything is in order. I really want to make this work but my fear has already started to kick in and every time I try to do something it goes wrong, so this is why I am trying to go slow..So I know my products and myself are gonna be OK.

I have made a facebook page, so I can update on what is happening and to help me keep focused. My items will be mainly sold in my partners shop, which he is working on at this moment, but I am hoping to sell them online. I am already thinking of future plans but will make sure I keep to the now :)

This is basically my dream and I have been trying to get a shop up and running for 4 years, but like I said I always fell flat on my face so now I think is the right time. I am making sure what herb is safe and what is not...I have noticed some people haven't even been doing that and they have just went flying ahead, which has made me annoyed and feeling a little upset but I know I am doing the right thing by taking it easy. It is the best way to do things, just wish I thought that all the time but I guess I am just excited to do things that I love lol.

Anyways, I really should go to sleep now. I will post the link (here) of the shop for anyone to check out ;)
(I love my little logo, which I made in 10 minutes lol :P)

Such a good vibe tonight

I just love the feeling when you finally make a video that you feel is important or will help someone in some way. It is like you can actually breathe and think properly now lol.
I had wanted to make a video of my views and points on how not to get scammed by any spiritual healer. I know it cant always work like that but they may help in the long run.

So the video is done and is now live, yay!

and this is all I have to report :)
Hope it is a good day/evening/night for everyone out there :)

Look what I got in the post today

Oh yes, I finally got The real witches' garden by Kate West!
I don't know what it is about this author but the few books that I have by her are really good. So I know these books are more towards those who practise Wicca (or so I have been told), but this doesn't bother me. She and Teresa Moorey were the two authors that helped me find hedgewitchery, so I am always grateful for her showing me the way..Plus her "the real witches' kitchen" book has been really useful to me. I know she has more books out but I am gonna stick with the 4 I have as they don't really give you spells and her other books seem to do that.
Anyway, I just wanted to brag about this as I am in love with the book already and it has given me ideas for what herbs I should plant so I can make some incense :)

Happy New Year

Hope you all have a wonderful, happy, healthy and wealthy new year :)
Make it a good one.

Dont really do New Year resolutions but I thought I would this year and they are:

1 - Lose a bit more weight
2 - Be more positive
3 - Enjoy life.
