Cheapo Altar Tips

• There’s lots of free stuff outdoors. Acorns, cool rocks you find, pine cones, seashells, flowers, leaves, etc.

• Put a small jar or glass outside in the rain to collect water for your altar

• Put a small jar or glass of water outside during a full moon to make moon water for your altar

• A small dish of iodized salt for purification, cleansing, and to represent the earth element

• Print out artwork of a deity you honor, or a master you follow, or even just someone you love and respect (Mikao Usui, Amma, your grandma, the goddess Brigid, Jesus, etc)

• You can buy cheap candles at the dollar store. Choose a color and a scent that resonates with the theme of your altar. If it’s a seasonal altar, buy accordingly. If it’s a self-empowering altar, just choose whatever your favorite is. If it’s a healing altar, maybe white or green with a clean, fresh scent would be best. You choose!

• Old tablecloths, curtains, and scarves can be used as an altar covering

• Food items like apples, spices, nuts, candy, etc can be added for seasonal flare (i.e. in the fall, decorate with apples, tiny pumpkins, gourds, hazelnuts, cinnamon sticks, etc)

• Draw symbols, sigils, or runes of your choice on rocks you find, pieces of paper, or wood chips to add to your altar (again, choose symbols based on intent)

• Write down an affirmation, spell, or just a motivational message and tape it above your altar. Alternatively, you can fold it up and read it every time you visit your altar. It can help solidify the intent for your altar and empower you in the process :)

Witch tips on a budget #2

I can’t believe how many reblogs my last one got!

Witch hack: The Altar

Ok so altars are not always easy to make on a budget and I know this from experience. I work part time for minimum wage so I don’t have money for a really fancy altar so here are some tips and ideas.

The Altar Itself: ok so the altar itself is not that difficult, a desk or small table is best but if you don’t have much space for a desk you can clear space on a shelf or dresser. If you need a portable altar, consider a firm shoe box or even an altoid tin (possibilities are endless)

Decor: ok so before you set up the altar you should consider an altar cloth. These are pricy but can easily be made with an old bedsheets or tablecloth or even a curtain. If you can sew, you can even created a pretty personalized one.

With fabric paints or permanent marker, you can decorate the cloth with whatever you see fit (mandalas, the triple goddess symbol, a pentacle, a oujia board, a pendulum board, etc)

Place the following objects on your altar: a candle or two (back corners), incense/sage (right side), an athame (optional, next to incense), a dish or jar of moon water and a dish or jar of earth (left side), a plate for offerings (center), and a chalice (if not available you can bless a wine glass and use that, somewhere near offering plate)

If your altar seems empty, you can fill up space with dried flowers, crystals, a scrying mirror, shells, more candles, anything you feel belongs.

Have fun and stay safe xx

Cat!Kuro Headcanons

Somehow I started imagining Kitty Kuro because we don’t see him that much and then I came up with this nonsense. I hope you guys like it~

  • Kuro sleeps on Mahiru’s bed when Mahiru wants to sleep. He sleeps on the chair when Mahiru wants to sit down. He sleeps on the book Mahiru’s reading or the fresh laundry. Kuro knows exactly where to sleep to annoy his Eve the most.
  • Kuro is prone to walking over the keyboard whenever Mahiru is working on the computer. One time Mahiru didn’t notice because he was taking a short bathroom break and then he accidentally turned in an essay that had a random mess of letters added to the end of the last sentence. He’s been making a point of proofreading stuff twice ever since.
  • Sometimes Kuro tries to drink from a glass while in cat form and ends up knocking it over and creating a huge mess. And, of course, like every cat, he has this weird habit of pawing against a glass until it falls off the edge of the table. Mahiru tries to stop him but has yet to get any further than “Kuro NO-” before he has to clean up the mess.
  • Kuro’s favorite place to sleep on is Mahiru. No matter if it’s his feet, his lap, his shoulder or even his head, he just loves to curl up on his Eve and fall asleep in the weirdest positions ever. Of course, once he’s asleep, Mahiru’s not allowed to move because that would wake Kuro up and, as the vampire keeps saying, “You should never wake a sleeping cat.” So Mahiru can only sit there and feel his arms or legs fall asleep and wait until Kuro wakes up.
  • Kuro has chased and successfully pulled down the tablecloth thrice and the curtains once. Both are now out of use, but that won’t keep him from going after the blanket corners, scarves and shower curtains (unless they’re wet).
  • Kuro often licks Mahiru’s fingers, but at some point he usually gets bored of it and decides that he used up his amount of affection for the week and suddenly starts biting Mahiru’s hand out of nowhere. Mahiru knows it always ends this way but still lets Kuro lick his fingers because it tickles and feels nice, and seeing Kuro openly show this much affection is rare.
Decor for the Heroine

*Ghosts not included in purchase. Summon your own!

Candelabras

Electric lighting fixtures? How bourgeoisie. With these candelabras, no heroine will be left bereft of light on a stormy night.

Use these Gothic door mats to give off an air of foreboding to your guests and any delivery persons who may come by, whether you prefer the stone style reminiscent of a dungeon, or the wrought iron eerily similar to a locked gate.

Let’s Movie Nerd-Out About Fabric in “Bright Star”

I don’t think I’ll break any shocking news to you when I say that there’s a whole lot of fabric in this movie. It’s all over the characters, as you might predict (or not, if you’re a Michael Bay fan or something); the interiors, too, feature blankets, sheets, curtains, drapes, tablecloths and the like very heavily. From the mise en scène to the film’s major themes to the plot itself, fabric is a crucial object in Bright Star, so we absolutely must don our flamboyant 19th century hats and give this a good old-fashioned nerding out. Spoilers galore under the cut.

DHMIS 6 Post 2

In this post, I will be going over the differences between the begining of the first DHMIS and the end of DHMIS 6. If you havnt seen my first post you should go check that out.

Lets start out with the date. Obiviously, the first DHMIS starts on the 19th of June while the end of DHMIS 6 is on the 20th of June.

Now, the rooms themselves. Unfortunatly there isnt a shot of the room at the end of DHMIS 6 with the calendar on June 20th, but I am going to count that as a difference anyway. The characters themselves and different colors. The Red Guy is now blue, the yellow guy is now green and the duck is red. If you have’nt noticed bytnow, these are their favorite colors (there are pictures below of their favorite colors, said in the first DHMIS). The objects in the two rooms are completly different. The first room has many more things inside it that the second does not, such as food bowls, a table with a phone,a teapot and another cup on the table, a newspaper, a fridge, a counter, kitchen supplies and a shelf. The floor, curtains, tablecloth and the red/blue guys chair are also different in each room. Also, in the first room the clock and the picture are on the same wall and in the second wall they are on different walls and the radio on the windowsill is replaced with a plant. The yellow(or green) guy and the green(or red) duck are bothe wearing different clothes than they did in the first DHMIS. The three differences that I think are the most important are these; 

It is more sunny outside

There is a door

They are happy.

I want to talk about that last one in more detail. The red/blue guy looks less bored and more excited. The yellow/green guy is smiling in the second picture opposed to him frowing in the first. The green/red duck also looks much happier.

Last but not least the notebook. In the first DHMIS the lightbulb doesnt appear untill the notebook says creative, but the notebook in the end of DHMIS 6 starts of with the lightbulb. Also, the notebook in the second picture has an overall more derpy look. It has derpy eyes and a derpy smile.

Thats it for this post and I hope you enjoyed. If I got anything wrong or you have and questions or suggestions dont be afraid to talk to me. Bye!!

30 WIntermarch. Icy winds today.

Not even the cold will keep a Hawke from achieving their goals. In this case, that meant Mother making the rounds of every merchant in Hightown to furnish that great drafty manse now that everything’s cleared out. 

  • Jean-Luc’s: six day dresses for Mother & two formal gowns; one of each for me as well, as if I’ll ever have occasion to wear them. Also, getting fitted was rather more intimate than I’d realized it would be. I can safely say that’s the first time someone’s seen so much of me since Lothering
  • Evelie’s: fine curtains, bedclothes, tablecloths, doilies for every single blasted room in the house. Didn’t even know there were so many shades of red
  • Masterson’s: two bedsteads, three nightstands, three bureaus, new dining table. Must remember to ask Gamlen to borrow his ear trumpet so we can hear each other at the far ends of it
  • Lowtown market for enough food to feed an army at penniless refugee prices
  • Lady Elegant’s home for tea. Tea! Granted, I’ve known Elegant a long time, but this was the first time she’s ever met my mother. Mother looked like she belonged there, sipping expensive tea out of expensive porcelain. I can’t remember seeing her like that before. Then Elegant and I started talking shop and I felt a bit better

Spent more money this morning than probably the last six months. Varric says my share may come out a third again better than he’d originally thought. I haven’t a clue what I’m to do with so much coin; must remember to ask Fenris what useless decorations Danarius kept his money in.

Hm. Maybe not.
