Witch Crafts:  Witch Ball

Witch balls have been a part of pagan tradition for many years. Their purpose is to protect the home and its inhabitants from evil and harm.   Traditionally, you made a witch ball every year to seal fortune and protection for the next twelve months.  You can hang this ornament in a window, over a doorway, in a bedroom or even outdoors; wherever you feel it would serve its purpose the best. It would look lovely as a Christmas or Yule decoration as well!

You can purchase empty ornaments and bottles from craft stores, or re-use old light bulbs for this!  Fill it with the following:  

  • Sprigs of Lavender to encourage a calm, peaceful environment
  • Chamomile Flowers to aid in relieving anxiety
  • Yarrow, Roses and Rose Quartz crystals to encourage self-love and love in relationships
  • Jasmine Flowers to attract wealth  and sweet dreams
  • Cinnamon to draw happiness and  comfort

You could also include:

  • A seashell and a shark tooth to incorporate the magic of the sea
  • Curly pods (because they are so cute!)
  • Cloves to attract good luck and prosperity
  • Anise wards off the evil eye
  • Other tiny crystals for added energy
  • A bay leaf for protection

Harry is sitting alone at the ball further away from the dancing crowd, bored to death.

Harry: *gritting his teeth*

Draco: Only good at dancing with dragons, are you, Potter?

Cho comes over, a bit flustered from all the dancing, not paying any attention to Draco.

Cedric follows Cho out of the crowd. He looks at Harry and winks playfully.

Footage from the police interview with ‘Selfie Killer’, Amanda Taylor

On the 4th of April 2015, Amanda Taylor stabbed her father-in-law, Charles Taylor (59), to death, with the help of Sean Ball. Amanda blamed Charles for her husband’s death, Rex Taylor, who had hanged himself in August 2014. After the stabbing, she posed for a selfie with the dead body and shared it online.

‘‘… I was very happy, I was very happy just to finally get all that built-up hate and anger and all those feelings out on him… When I stabbed he just looked at me and was like “what are you doing?” … I continued to stab him but he kept yelling and it made me nervous so Sean took the crow bar, the tire iron or whatever, and hit him in the back of the head… I was just really excited and I was like hey I’m gonna take a picture so I can post it and show everyone. It was just something that I, it made me really happy…’’

Amanda Taylor was charged with first-degree murder and got sentenced to life in prison. Sean Ball was charged with second-degree murder and got sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Stop being INSENSITIVE to SNAKE OWNERS

Making comments like ‘Kill the snake” “Stomp on it” are very rude and insensitive. Snakes are a pet/companion like any other. Saying snakes are gross to a snake owner or to kill them is like saying a dog is gross and you should kill it. Either comment makes you a horrible person. Snakes are not gross, stop judging our pets like they are your own. If you do not like snakes then simply do not own one. BUT do not go around tell other people their animal is gross and should be killed.
