Halloween Haul, Joann’s Fabric and Craft Shop

I hadn’t been into a Joann’s in forever and I heard and watched on Voltaire’s youtube channel that they carried a nice size variety of spooky Halloween pieces, so I made it my mission to check out what they had to offer for the Witch’s New Year.

They had a bunch of blank skeletons in people and in animals that are perfect for painting your own skeleton crafts in different positions plus a bunch of DIY crafts, but the first aisle that caught my eye was the Halloween spooky home goods section where I spotted a bunch of cute dish and hand towels where I chose two that says, “I’m Just here for the BOOS,” and a purple towel with skulls that will look perfect into my kitchen. They all have matching trim lace at the bottom which is a really cute marathon. I actually might go back to get a few more.

The next thing I spotted was black and white skeleton ribbon. The designed reminded me of the Haunted Mansion wall paper print and I thought this ribbon would be perfect for my Halloween art craft pieces that I’m selling.

Next thing I saw in their small Halloween costume/accessory section were skeleton and rose clips, perfect for sugar skull collection and perfect for my hair, 

The last thing I picked up when waiting in line to check out were a very cute witch pair of socks, one pair solid violet, the other pair, green and purple striped socks that say with witch shoe images, “If the Shoe fits.”

   They had so many cute things at Joann’s and I probably would’ve bought more stuff if the sales girl I asked a simple question which was if they had something in the store that was listed on their website. It’s ok, they lost my money, and I saved money for my next VINTAGE and HALLOWEEN HAUL!

June/July 2019 Beauty Product Faves

Hey everyone, I haven’t done a beauty and makeup product favorite video in awhile and I miss doing them so I thought it would be fun to do a new summer product review and fave video on some of my fabulous new favorites for summer 2019 items, and possible all year round. Hope you enjoy my video and remember I have Patreon on my Youtube Channel now.

Celebrating Yule/Winter Solstice

IMG_8276

Today is the first day of Yule which represents the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice and I really enjoyed celebrating today. I decorated for this season and holiday and am spending the evening with the love of my life. He is always so supportive of everything I do.

In case you’re wondering, some of the more traditional decorations for Yule include burning a Yule log, pinecones and nuts, candles (especially in the colors of gold, silver, green, and red, and more. Like I said in my previous Yule post from this morning, the holiday starts today and goes until New Year’s Day so decorate for the changing of the season if you desire. It doesn’t matter if you practice Wicca or not. You are free to celebrate anything you like! 

 Here are some of my decor from today. It’s simple but beautiful. Leave a comment if you decorate for Yule of have any questions or ideas. Sending lots of love and Happy Holidays to you all!

Happy Yule!

Good Morning everyone and HAPPY YULE! Yule is the Winter Solstice and today, the 21st, is the shortest day of the year. Yule starts today officially and the holiday will end on New Year’s Day. My girlfriend Suzy Owen who I’ve mentioned in the past and did a feature on is from New Zealand and is celebrating the Spring Solstice today. I plan on posting more pictures of my Yule decorations later on this evening but wanted to wish you all a Happy Winter Solstice. Enjoy the day!

Rest in Peace Dolores Chapman

This morning I woke up early to some absolutely devastating news. Dolores Chapman aka TipToeChick had passed away only a few days ago before Samhain which is the Witch’s New Year. She was only thirty-eight years old. I was in floods of tears when I heard this news. We are in the same community for Wicca and whenever I had spoken to her online, she was always so sweet and kind. She used the name TipToeChick for her youtube channel which is one of my all time favorite channels. I’ll be posting her channel information down below.

Besides all the videos she did on Wicca and spirituality, she also posted videos about her online business which was the “Green Eyed Owl”, healthy recipes, her wonderful family, and more. She did not make one video that I didn’t enjoy. The best thing about Dolores is that when you watch her videos, you don’t actually feel like you’re watching a regular youtube video. You feel like you were just having a conversation with a best friend. Even if you don’t practice Wicca, I still recommend checking out her channel. She had such a beautiful soul and very special energy which will live on.

   Her best friend and another member of our community, “CharmingPixieFlora” posted a very good but very emotional video talking about TipToeChick as well as how to deal with grieving in general. It’s really a great video that I know came from her heart. I posted it below and I DEFINITELY think everyone should watch it.

   I’ve been sending prayers to her family and will be lighting candles in her honor. I know her spirit and soul is still with us  and watching over her family and friends. I love you Dolores. You will be missed TipToeChick. Blessed Be!
