I have a lot of friends who are artists, and I am also an artist, and something I struggle with a lot is having confidence in myself as a creator. So I made this concoction with the intention of building confidence and eradicating self-doubt, specifically to do with creating.
Storm water (for passion, strength) Basil (for happiness and satisfaction with one’s work) Lavender (for protection from self-doubt) Cinnamon (for creativity)
The amounts don’t really matter (but the cinnamon makes it smell really good!). I put the storm water in a small bottle and mixed the other ingredients into it.
To charge it, simply shake the bottle and say these words:
“As the storm shakes the earth, May this blessing shake my soul. Motivate me to create For that is what makes me whole.”
I am keeping mine by my computer since that is where I do most of my creating, but you can set it anywhere where it will be most useful!
As a wondrous friend has told me with this pop-up series: “And thus, the Gates of Hell were opened.”
Prompto showing Ignis the Tumblr ropes:
“No, dude, you’re not ‘tumblng’ when you do things on Tumblr.”
“Well. I thought it was clever.”
“This is the reblog button, it’s how you add a post to your blog while crediting the original source.”
“Yes, but what’s a hashtag?”
“A tag is used so people can find the post when they search for it.”
“…So, to find this naked drawing of me, I would search the: ‘Sexy. I want to bang him so bad, Iggy, touch me’ tag?”
*tearing up* *holding back laughter* “Dude.”
Prompto regrets showing him how to reply to posts, he always has ‘constructive criticism’ for anything food related. He is also a kink-shamer, who knew?
“That is inappropriate to mention in public. I do not care if you are using the name filthy-milfy182 instead of your given.”
Ignis is the first of he, Prompto, and Ravus to ever get hate from an Anonymous User.
*furious typing* “We are all entitled to our opinion, good sir or madam–”
Prompto told Ignis he could just type relevant words into the tags and he does so, but he also types in full websites and irritatingly long recipe titles.
Once he was shown the user-tag system, no man was safe.
Ignis took his newly found knowledge to his best parent friend Regis and now they collaborate: Ignis with his creative recipes look just darling pictured with the King’s knowledge in interior decorating.
