Here you will find the home and/or business pages of the members of PaganCrafts e-mail list. Come in, sit a spell and visit with friends - enjoy!!

Welcome to the new members that have joined the list. I'm Carole, your list owner, but I prefer to just be a hostess. :) Some of you know me, others don't, but I'm sure those who do can tell you that I'm pretty laid back and interested in a ton of things. :) Conversations depend on who wants to post and learn about what specific things. If you have an interest, please, post about it. You will find me a little slow replying in the mornings - especially if you are on the east coast - since I'm on the west coast. But, I can usually make up for it in the evening by posting after everyone else has hit the sack. :) You can find out a little more about me at the end of all the other intros.

Hello Everyone,

I joined the list about 2 weeks ago and have been off-line since that time. I appreciate the variety that this list offers. I have been reading e-mails for the past 3 hours catching up.

Outside the window the gray mist of rain and fog accentuate the changing of the seasons. On this gray day I feel blessed. Maybe it is all the e-mail's I have been reading. Thank you list for existing.

I live in a woodsy area in West Marin, California. I like witnessing the changes in the seasons and living in the middle of nature.

My name is Tara, I am an Herbal student, both in study and in practice at a herbal shop in Point Reyes. I am a 'save the forest activist', a kitchen witch and an artist. Some of my crafts are soap, candles, knitting, tincture making, raddle making, some basketry. I like crafts that are beautiful as well as practical. That's why I was attracted to this list. Living the pagan lifestyle helps me to do my part in saving the earth and also magically enhances my life.

Yule type crafts would be good to share right now. I'll see what I can find and pass along. I would also appreciate any ideas you pagancrafters might have!

Blessed Be
Tara

Hi everyone,

I'm the new member Mama J. mentioned, the one who's interested in knitting. :-) I do know of many websites that offer free knitting patterns (in fact, I have one myself: Here. Thanks for the Mining Co. URL; I hadn't seen that one.

I would love to find some specifically Pagan knitting patterns, though I'm not sure _exactly_ what I'm looking for. There's a new Pagan/Wiccan crafts book available -- I saw it last week at Powell's -- but while it had some nice, overtly Wiccan stuff in the cross stitch section (and other sections as well), the knitting section was much more generic. It included pattern stitches, for example, but they weren't anything I couldn't find in any other knitting book.

Anyway, I'm not being very helpful, since I don't really know what I'm looking for ... but if anyone has any pagan knitting patterns I'd love to know about them. :-)

Feel free to check out my knitting page, too -- I have a few free patterns, my own designs, including some miniature mittens that make a really cute holiday ornament and would work great as a small gift.

ok, i'm peeking out of the shadows for the first time, though i think i've been on the list since its first day or two. :) its been interesting so far, though i had to unsubscribe and resubcribe with a different email address to handle the volume of email :) i'm printing and saving a lot of the recipes etc to try "when i have the time" (ha ha) probably during winter break.

I go by many handles online, so we'll pick StarSinger for this list. (some other handles are CelticDruidess and BranchDrui, for anyone who is curious and/or might have run into me elsewhere) i am married and living in Central Texas, going to school and working. interested in lots of craft type things. my husband and i are trying to get things organized to begin an herbalist shop, so any suggestions are welcome. *smile*

Hello everyone,

I am a new and thought that I would introduce myself. My real name is June. I live in Ontario, Canada. I am a solitary pagan. I have been a crafter all my life. My main hobby is crochet. I am not much of a gardener at all. I would like to improve that. I would like to get into making soap and candles. I also do some cross stitch and will check out those sites. I am hoping one day to get the xstitch pattern from De La Tour. It is a maiden sitting on a moon. She has other lovely ones. I dont have the email handy but could get it if you want it. I will go for now.

A bit of an introduction for me...

My name is Karla, I'm 22 and I live in New Westminster BC Canada with my boyfriend Greg and my kitten Luna. Pagan-wise, I'm a pretty eclectic witch with a whole lot of kitchen witch in me. I'm a member of an online coven, but I'm also just starting to do a lot of solitary practise and study as well. My interests are pretty varied... I'm a big computer/internet nut, and I make webpages for fun (and occasionally for money - I work for an Internet Provider). I do a lot of reading, I like to cook and bake, and I'm a music nut (I play piano, trumpet, french horn, clarinet, flute and recorder). I'm also a member of the SCA - Society for Creative Anachronism - a historical re-creation group. Crafts-wise, I do a lot of stuff... sewing, embroidery and I make Pysanky (traditional Ukrainian Easter Eggs). Future stuff that I'm intending to learn includes bobbin lace, spinning and weaving, candlemaking, basket-weaving and pottery.

That's me in a nutshell... if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! :)

Blessings,

Greetings,

I've done a few craft things, but would like to do more. hard to get time to learn something complicated. i'll definately be looking out for easy/quick things that look nice, especially around the sabbats. I live in Texas, been active pagan for about 3 years or so. Got 10 cats and 6 dogs. i try and grow plants but they don't have a good survival rate because i travel a lot. and the cats also eat them. i've made a meditation mandala and that is about it so far. i'm really looking forward to learning.

Hi everyone! My name is Christine---I just joined this list & wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I'm a single mom to a 2-year-old boy, work a "regular" job, and am attempting to start up a home-based toiletry business with a friend called Dragon's Myst. The whole idea started as an inexpensive way to make presents and just escalated from there. Mostly I make M&P soap, but have also made a few batches of CP; and lately have started making candles as well. I think even if the business doesn't work out, I won't stop making the soap---I love doing it too much!!

Take care!

From: Ronda Eikenberry

Hi, my name is Ronda Eikenberry, I'm 31 and live in Portland, Oregon

I'm a Christian, but I would LOVE to learn how to make things like soap, candles, perfumes and all of the such.

I do sew A LOT, dry my own herbs and fruits, and veggies. I even make my own spice mixtures. I try and use as much natural things as I can, because I do believe that, that is what nature intended us to do.

I'm not a cradle Catholic, and there are some (lots) of things that I do NOT agree with in the church, but everywhere you go there is bound to be something that you will dissagree on.

I have 2 boys, 10 & 1 1/2, and I want to learn more how to do things without relying on the factories and the mass production to tell me how I should live, make, eat and things like that!

Sincerely,
Ronda Eikenberry

Hello all!

I am a perfumer and cold-process soapmaker in Texas. M husband and I are about to open a retail store in Salado, and are fast & furiously in production right now, LOL! I also grow my own herbs (one of the only types of plants that thrives in the central Texas Hill Country, and luckily my favorite!), and use them in my handmade soaps and toiletries and herb crafts. I also make beeswax candles, and handsewn accessories based on historical patterns, such as reticules (tiny decorative purses and pouches), decorated shoes and hats and hooked rugs. We only have "fur-kids" so far, but they are dears. I am very interested to be a part of this list, and to, I am sure, learn a lot.

Just wanted to introduce myself briefly. I usually lurk on the few lists that I am on but really enjoy getting all the mail. My name is Sandi, 36 years young, living in Savannah and working as a nurse. Just got a new job in the emergency room, which I have coveted for a while now. I actually have only been a nurse for a year, and am doing a home study program to get my RN. In my spare time, I am a bellydancer, and I make soap, toiletries, and any other kind of crafts that are quick and easy. I like instant gratification!! I just bought my first house in May and my husband and I would like to get into herbal gardens. I do have a cool little fairy garden already. Stepmother to one teenage son and mother to two boys 12 and 10. They all think mom is so weird because she is always into doing new things.

Hello everyone,

I am new to the list. I am Fran and I live in northern California. I met Carole on another list and she has been very kind and helpful to me and invited me to join this list. In fact, I call her God's Aunt.

I quickly went into the pagan home page and was in augh in how nice it was. How in the world did anyone put that together so fast?

I am not pagan but have an open mind and want to learn as much as I can. I am not sure how much I can contribute. More likely ask alot of dumb questions.

To be very honest, it is hard to join a group of people when you are not familiar with their customs. It is not a question of being uncomfortable for me but not wanting to invade your space as an outsider.

So for a little while, I'll sit back and learn.

Greetings all,

I'm new here...just thought I would make myself atleast visible.:) I'm looking very forward to getting ideas from this list. I am planning on having a small craft shop of my own soon...making candles, soaps, potpourri, etc. I could definitely use ideas and get advice!!

Thanks for the welcome.:) I'm just getting started in this. I plan to just hit the many craft fairs in this area and shops for right now (and internet of course.) We just recently made a big move and it will be a while before we have our own place. I haven't even started yet...I have a six month old daughter who is presently going through a very umm....how should I say, "high maintenance" phase?LoL. So needless to say, I don't have nearly as much time on my hands as I'd like.

The only supplier I have in mind right now is Pourette for my candle supplies. I'm still looking in that area. As far as ideas.....ANY. LoL. I want to do jar candles and hand dipped tapers first.... mixed with herbs, and scented with essential oils of course. Also herbal soaps. I'm really wanting to get into cosmetics. It seems there just isn't enough out there...not purely natural ones. I'd like to do shampoos, conditioners, lotions, make-up removers, creams, shaving lotions, etc. As of yet, I haven't found too much on making these though. Once we do get our own place and I can run a shop straight out of my home, I want to start carrying ritual supplies, books, etc. I would like to make my own candle holders.....the only idea I've gotten though is wooden bookshelves with the holders on the ends. I think I'll do these with stenciled ivy on them. I used to do ceramics.... so I will be piddling around in that again of course. I love dry brushing....I have a big beer stein with protruding figures such as gargoyles, etc.....carved out with the handle gone, and made into a light...all dry-brushed with extreme detail. I want to do some more of these if I can find the molds...or even the greenware.

I live in a very rural area now.....and it seems the people are real craft-lovers. It seems like the ideal place for this. If anyone has any good websites on candles or anything I've listed....I would definitely appreciate them. And by the way....nice work on the Pagancrafts site...I loved it!!

Organization: Crone's Network

Guess I should introduce myself. My name is Marilyn Warren and I live in British Columbia, Canada. I have been a Dianic Witch for 27 + years. I am a Dianic teacher and High Pristess. I am and elder with the Council of Celtic Shamans. I write articles for various pagan centered magazines. I have one husband, one dog and three cats. I live on 1\2 acre between two mountains and across from an artesian waterfall. I love to knit, crochet, X-stitch, write, make oils, brews, potpourri, perfumes, soaps, ritual candles, weave willow baskets, sew, bake breads (ritual and otherwise), preserve, pickle, garden and wildcraft. I am just starting to quilt, but am not very good yet. I am only up to potholders and they seem a bit askew. I make silver rings, bracelets and coronets, though I have only made these for me, not for sale - no time. I make and sell ritual breads and other bakegoods to coven members and friends. I am a certified Duncan Ceramic Instructor and give classes once per week and sometimes on weekends. I have done some wheel throwing of pottery, but it is too much of a chore. I prefer pouring.

I make all sorts of ritual oils and incense. Usually I give them away as presents. I also am quite accomplished at making wine. My reds took top prize in the local fair this year. Mostly I make wines with my own fruits. I have just started branching off into making mead. I will not know how I did in that area for about two years or so.

Guess that is about it. I have recipes for Bath Bombs and Fizzies, as well as bath salts and ritual candles. If they may be of interest, I can post some every once in a while to the list. You can let me know.

I like lots of different things.... sewing, crochet, cross-stitch, painting, soap and toiletries making, herb gardening .....plus I'll go for any interesting looking project involving anything else. BG

I have to admit I haven't done any crossing over of pagan stuff and crafts yet. Although, I've been crocheting some snowflakes and it struck me that it would be pretty simple to alter a six pointed design to five points. I think there will be some pentacle like snowflakes hanging in my house this yule. BG

Also, I am new to things pagan {a little more than a year}, and the learning potential here is good for me. On the pagan home page, and probably here, I will do more reading than writing. As I feel I may have something worth while to contribute, I will write.

From: Annie Organization: Team Kemp, Inc.

merry meet:

i've been a quilter for many many years now. i first learned from the old ones when i was very small. there's lots of folklore surrounding quilting, like don't let tears fall on the stitches or the person who sleeps beneath the quilt will be saddened as they sleep. as an african-american woman i've done a great deal of research about the place of quilting in slavery. quilts were used as maps both in design and sometimes with actual escape maps hidden inside the quilt to be quickly removed before the new owner found out. quilts were also hung in windows to either indicate safe houses or to stay away because slave hunters were nearby.

i call my work "as i see you" quilts. the colours and pattern is my vision of a particular person. i have never sold my quilts but have donated them for non-profit auctions. if i sold them i'd have to think more about whats sells inside of whats in my heart regarding that particular individual. i'm fortunate in that i have a job that feeds my hobby and a wonderful husband who calls my quilting "my magick." there is a great deal of ritual involved for me in the creation of a new quilt.

i have systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. 22 pills a day keep me functioning most times and my wonderful husband keeps me going the rest of the time. we met on the net, flew back and forth for over a year (he's english) and finally married here in america on january 2nd of this year. he is my gift from the god and goddess and i truly believe i would not be alive today were it not for his love and devotion. my ex of 25 years wasn't into chronic illness and i have not doubt i would have been left to slowly deteriorate by him. but the illness galvanized me, got me off my butt and made me do things i'd only thought about for years, like walking away from a dead marriage.

well i've rambled on. my web site is about my short stories as i am a writer. its called stories of race in america and its an anthology of a young girl growing up during the sixties. i look forward to being a part of this list and am delighted i was invited to join.

as a pagan quilter i'm very excited about the list and have subscribed. bright blessings on you for creating it. my quilting is VERY much a part of how i worship the god and goddess and i'm delighted to finally have a place i can openly talk about such things

Hi everyone!

Just thought I'd breeze in and let you know I've joined up. Sounds like a groovey idea. Sort of a virtual quilting ring!

My main magickally related crafts are incenses, oils, perfumery, that sort of thing. So I'll be posting mainly from that and probably not too often without prodding.

SMILE

Wow! It's great to see so many folkes joining in. MamaJ is a great gal so I am sure her list will be fabulous too! Anyhow, I just wanted to welcom everyone in one little note rather than tryin gto say hi to everyone individually.

Looking forward to many wonderful hours together.

LADY AST-ATHENA

"From The Ashes Of Disaster Grow The Roses Of Success."

And, last, but definitely not least, your venerable (yeah, sure) list owner.

Okay, guys, here's a little background on me.

I'm housebound - on disability because of severe chemical allergies - and therefore I have tons of time, some great ideas I'd like to try, but a severe lack of funds. I really need to make a little bit extra so that I can keep on crafting and not go totally nuts sitting in my little 200 square foot witchmobile - yes, I live in a 32' motorhome. :)

I've made soap - well, okay, 1 bar, but will be posting more recipes for magickal soaps. I used to make candles way back in the old days - and was going to start again, but my daughter read Chris's candle post and now she's doing that. I LOVE to sew and embroider and have been making tarot card, rune, soap and bath salt bags and embroidering designs on them - from the mundane to the magickal. :) And, I love to work with herbs.

Right now I'm looking for but not really hopeful about finding some iron-on embroidery patterns in pagan, mystical, whimsical, mythical designs. I can and have done some of my own embroidery designs, but creative juices haven't really been flowing that well lately. If anyone knows where to find anything like these, please, let me know.

I'm also hoping to be able to put together baskets - for eveyrone, not just pagans - even though that it my first interest. So, I've got my daughter making candles, and I can make the soap (with a little more practice) and I can make bath salts and herbal baths and oil blends (with some friendly advice from Mary), and dream pillows - oh, the list is endless. :)
