Reclaim the Power of the Witch: Making Magic Make Sense by Monte Plaisance, Weiser Books, 1 Oct. 2001
Blurb: In an effort to bring witchcraft back to its roots, Monte Plaisance presents a straightforward look into the world of the witch. Plaisance tackles one of the most often misinterpreted aspects of witchcraft: the elements of magic. This is not a book of magical recipes or spells, but rather a serious look at what goes into making magic work: will and intent. Writing from years of experience, he demystifies the growing religion of Wicca and dispels popular myths created by TV and movies. This book offers a sweeping survey of the sources and influences of witchcraft from many cultures, showing that much of modern magick has its roots in Greek and Roman Mythology. Including chapters on divination, ritual, dreams and dreamwork, practical magical tools, and more, this book invites each reader to reclaim the power of the witch.
My etsy store is opening next week. I know I want to make doll books, I find the process of binding books so fun, especially in the smaller scale!! They will be fully operational, with blank unlined pages. I will be making them in a variety of sizes, 1/12, 1/6, ¼, and 1/3.
I will also be making suitcases trunks and such, scaled for each size. I love making them! I will also be making doll food. Oh, and actual human things to. Mainly jewelry.
I know I want to make kits to. Like a witchcraft kit, with a cauldron, spell book, wand, potion etc. Sets will have different themes.
The point of this post is what else do you want to see from me? I like making miniatures a lot, but I’m not sure what you would be willing to buy! Ideas???
I grew up watching “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and I used to pretend all the time what it would be like to be a slayer.
I was heavily into witchcraft at one point and I had a 300 page book about spells and the history of witchcraft.
That being said, I am obsessed with the Salem Witch Trials and that period of history.
My uncle is a police officer and when I was little, I used to pretend I was one too. I would hide in a bush on my yard and write down the license plate numbers and as much as I could remember about the cars that passed and would make up stories about them.
My sister wanted to do child modeling so my mom took her to an agency. I was maybe 2-4 years old at the time. When my mom explained that she was interested my sister modeling they looked at me and said they would work with her as long as they got to work with me.
I was featured in a calendar when I was little. I was standing in a basket with a giant floppy hat on my head, surrounded by sunflowers. (I still have it).
I bought spy gear when I was little and my family would get pissed every time I used it.
I hid the fact that I was a singer from my family until I was 14 years old.
My very first boyfriend in the 6th grade also happened to give me a bloody nose when he was shoved in the back of the bus and his skull bashed into my face….right before school started.
I was obsessed with “Walker Texas Ranger” growing up and when we were assigned a school project on the states in 5th grade, I begged and begged to get Texas. I got Texas but made the entire presentation about Chuck Norris and the show instead of the actual state. The cover page was a drawing of his badge.
