I have not been on top of my shit nearly as much as I should be. I made my own October tarot challenge and oNLY DID LIKE 4 DAYS OF IT. Great job me. To make up for it, I’m going to do a post about my divination box!
While I DO have an alter, my divination stuff all over it began to make it feel more like a work table than an alter table. SO I moved all my divination into this lovely box. Plus I wanted my stuff to be all in one, mobile place. Here it is!!!
BAM. Ain’t that nice? It use to be a regular wooden box but I painted it black, sealed it, and then added this piece of art that I cut out of a book (it was a very musty, moldy, water-damaged book that you couldn’t even look at let alone open up without feeling tiny mold spores literally fill up your lungs, so no huge loss, really), then I also sealed THAT. On the underside of the lid is this
a piece depicting the Goddess Heresy, also from the same book. While I don’t follow any Gods/Goddesses, I really liked this piece because she seems pretty boss. Now let’s look inside!
Do you think I have enough pouches?
In the star and moon one is where I keep my tarot deck. The bag sort of matches the back of the cards so that’s cool. In the bag with the cards I also keep a piece of amethyst, piece of quartz, a vial of salt, and a vial of sage leaves (that I grew myself!)
In the velvet bag is where I keep what I call my tarot stones. These are all crystals/stones that (I feel) aid in divination and its aftermath. I’ve got amazonite, sodalite, florite, red jasper, quartz, hematite, desert rose selenite, optical calcite (aka icelandic spar), blue calcite, blue sandstone, green calcite, and tiger’s eyes. I’ve also got a lovely wishing stone that has special meaning for me as well as this hella round rock I found. There’s nothing special about that one, I just like it.
The white pouch was handmade by me! Don’t laugh at it, I tried, okay? It holds my lovely rose quartz runes. They were a birthday gift from a close friend and are pretty important to me even though my rune reading studies are going SO SLOW (I’m not good at runes, quite frankly).
In the small red pouch are my witches runes! I made these myself!
Next is my rune casting cloth! This was also made by me (I’m very DIY if you haven’t noticed). It’s literally just sharpie on a handkerchief but I like it.
Then we have these. My pendulum and my journal. I just finished making the pendulum, it’s my very first one, and it might be my new favorite thing. It’s just a pentacle charm and a small amethyst stone but I already feel so connected to it. I think it’s because the stone use to be part of a bracelet that I wore CONSTANTLY until it broke the other day. So the stone is very connected to my energy. I can’t wait to start using it more. The journal is my divination journal. It’s different from my BOS in that in it I only record my daily tarot drawings and any divination that I do for myself or others. That’s literally its only purpose.
And then finally we have my two charm bottles. The big one is for protection, the small one is for increased intuition!
Well there you go! I might abandon this box if I find something a little larger, but for now I’m very happy with it. Do you have a special place for your witchy tools?

Hey guys! So I’m going to attempt something I’ve never done before on this blog–upload something to tumblr everyday for the next 30 days starting tomorrow! Since tomorrow is the first day of summer, I made my own 30 day challenge list for the occasion… So here it is! This will be a good way to practice uploading things in a timely manner (especially since I’m so disorganized OTL) Everyone else is welcome to use this list too if they want. Just tag me or something so I can see all of your wonderful drawings too! :>
So I really really wanted to start drawing again and decided the best way to practice the skills would be through drawing everyday. So I made my own little one month drawing challenge which I will start tomorrow. I probably won’t be posting my results unless otherwise requested but yeah, feel free to join in~

I made my own list using a random word generator, and fortunately, most of the words really suited this pairing or Knightwalker really well. Still took all night for write up. A little gift for @everybodys-chains
Moments were not timeless, although they seemed that way, and she wasn’t ready to let this one go just yet, arms tightening as if to ward off the universe itself.
Minnie knew she saw something the citizens of Edolas did not when she looked at Erza’s profile, heroic and strong in defense of the people and the crown.
“Erza, there are days when you are a bigmouth,” she sighed as she pulled out thread and a needle, which was unfortunately not going to be used to mend fabric, “And this time you paid for it.”
Destructive did not begin to describe what happened when Erza and Kara met, but Minnie had to admit they made things much more lively with their antics.
Fingers twined together, she tentatively tilted her head down until it rested on Erza’s shoulder, exhausted and reassured by the everlasting warmth that seemed to come from the other woman.
I was going to do the Pop Sugar challenge that a lot of people seem to attempt every year, but then I wasn’t a big fan of a number of the options. (I mean, I’m not reading a self-improvement book, or a political memoir…) So instead I made my own list of 50 challenges. We’ll see how well I stick to this.
