Last weekend it was decided that young Pillomin will be traveling back to Peewick to meet with the village herbalist. Since then I’ve been slowly building this bit of Sheena-Pea’s apothecary! Still needs more herbs, but I’m getting there. I wanted to make a piece of set that would give you (and me) a break from the soggy woods behind my home. It’s beautiful back there, but it keeps raining when I’m trying to shoot. Plus my downstairs neighbors are probably wondering just what the heck I’m up to out there, in the rain, with a bunch of stuffed animals. I had to hang Pillomin’s breeches up to dry when I got in last week.
Sheena-Pea is based on my real-life friend Sheena who runs the shop Branch and Beak and who makes a variety of witchy goods for your body! My favorite item that she makes is an essence of amethyst and lavender anointing oil that comes in roll-on tube so you can apply it to your temples (and everywhere) when you want to be calm. I use it all the time because honestly, I need it. Ha!
Sheena is also one of the funniest ladies I know, just a real good egg. I have doubts that I’ll be able to write her character with the wit that she has, but I’ll sure try.
Give her shop a look, and thanks for staying tuned!
I’m shooting to get Chapter 2 shot, written and edited by Friday so I can release some brand-new beasts into the shop this weekend. I’m really holding myself back from posting them now because Pillomin hasn’t met them yet. It’s difficult!
