After weeks of reading and researching I finally felt ready to start my full Grimoire with correspondences of the Craft. I found this awesome Owl notebook with a clasp, but didn’t like the inside. So I rebound it with black pages instead. I love how the white and gold pen looks on the black background.
Considering that I was scared to make mistakes I wrote everything on black paper in small portions. I then cut them out and stuck them in the book in a new order with non destructive tape. The pages you see in these images are final versions, but initially I had the flexibility to move the loose bits around till I found my perfect layout.
It also occured to me that witches in environments hostile to the craft could use this method in extreme emergencies. If someone insists on going through your things, you can temporarily pull the pieces that contain the correspondences out and keep them in a safe place, till you can stick them back. All the reader would see would be the decorative imagery that can be seen as Artistic meanderings. Once checked, people usually don’t come back to check again. Alternatively you can just hide the notebook, lol.
I am pleased with the result and will add more to this book in the weeks to come.

Now a Politico report published Thursday evening indicated that Trump’s administration also blocked the State Department’s prepared statement that recognized Jews and the atrocities the Jewish people suffered in the World War II genocide.

"And the official said the White House didn’t ask the State Department to craft their own statement.“
According to Politico, however, as State Department officials understood it, the statement it was crafting was meant for use by the White House. Read more
