No Crafts?

Hi everyone! Sorry I don’t have an actual craft post for this week! I didn’t have time over the weekend to finish a craft I was working on for the post or find an in progress craft I have that I want to pick back up this week. Just want to take this opportunity to give a small blog post, but it is crafty!

Today I went to the Family Resource Network in my area because I am apart of a group that helps out with youth and kids. And we are doing a big project this month for nursing homes! Our task is to make thank you cards to all of the residents and special ones to the staff for working during the COVID-19 pandemic.

I am making 30 cards for the staff in my county and the county next to us. As well as, 70 for residents in nursing homes, where the cards are needed. So I need to make a total of 100 cards. Each card is going to have a small pictures drawn on each. I also got some stickers to put on them as well because, who doesn’t love stickers?

We need 600 cards total for all residents and staff by the end of this month. So, I am hoping to complete mine early so I can make some more! Each nursing home is also going to get variety crafts to give to each resident for them to do!

When I complete some of them I will make a post for it within the next few weeks! Have a good night and look forward to this weeks Witchy Wednesday post!

Blessed be! πŸŒ›πŸŒšπŸŒœ

Site Changes!

Hi everyone! The blog site has undergone some changes this weekend! Have you seen last nights post yet? You might have noticed one of the many changes just by looking at that post!

First things first, I upgraded to a paid domain! This site will now be known as witch-crafty.com! There are many reasons why I upgraded, one of them being to make the site feel more personal, and another so I can post videos of some digital drawings! They won’t have sound at first since they are just some small time-lapses of the drawing being creating (and since the only ones I have so far are under 3 minutes). But! Not the point! Cool new stuff!

Second, I got really distracted yesterday making banners and a new logo for the site, so yesterday’s post was a little later that I would have liked it to be. Below you can see a gallery of all the banners you will see throughout the site for blog pages and posts that I want to have a featured image, but I don’t know what one to use because there are multiple (or because I couldn’t figure out what to take a picture of). These banners are made by me, and might change later on, but right now I wanted the site to have a clean and unified look. Let me know what you think!

Also! Check out the new logo up close and a video time-lapse of the drawing process!

New logo time-lapse!

I have a few digital art time-lapses I am looking forward to sharing on Crafty Monday’s in the following weeks. If anyone has any suggestions for any crafts or drawings, feel free to leave them in the comments! Thanks for reading!

My Schedule!

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted life was a little crazy with self-quaratining with a COVID-19 scare. I just didn’t have the mental state to actually post. But with my time away I decided to come up with a simple schedule for myself that will start next week so I can have different posts throughout the week.

The schedule goes as followed:

  • Sunday: No posts
  • Monday: Craft-tastic Monday
    • Will be a craft I am working on or have finished. Or just posts of crafts that I am looking forward to starting!
  • Tuesday: No posts
  • Wednesday: Witchy Wednesday
    • Mainly will be composed of updates on what I am currently learning for my path and what I am focusing on.
  • Thursday: No posts
  • Friday: No posts
  • Saturday: Weekly Tarot!
    • This will have all of my Daily Tarot readings from the week into one post! Just to keep the blog a little less consumed of readings.

I might throw in a few random posts here and there as surprises if I feel up to it. But, life gets crazy sometimes, so I might not always have time to make a post. But! If I get the hang of the above schedule I might start thinking about doing Blogmas this year! 😁

Blessed be! πŸŒ›πŸŒšπŸŒœ

Solitary Intro

Hello! πŸ€— Welcome to my first blog post for Witch-Crafty! This will just be a short intro on what the blog is about and what to expect. You can find more information and specifics about the blog and how it will be sectioned out on the About Me page.

To start, my name is Madi and I am into crafting and witchcraft. I have been crafting since I was a kid and it has been a passion for as long as I can remember. I want to share some crafts that I make on here, but it might not be often that I share crafts because my main focus for this blog is to share my solitary path into withcraft.

As a kid I grew up in a catholic household while going to CCD after school until middle school. We would go to church, sometimes, though more often when my great aunts were in town. I did believe in most of the religion, but I just never had the heart in it. I was Baptisted after I was one (I believe) and confirmed when I was in 5th grade. After moving away to a new school district at the end of 8th grade, I didn’t go to church as much or barley 3-4 times a year. I ended up not really believing in any religion, but always believed that something was there.

Since my sophomore year of high school, I have been interested into Wicca and paganism. That was the year we read The Crucible in my honors English class and did a lot of research about witchcraft and the Salem witch trials. Ever since then, I have gathered a few books and resources to begin practicing, but never made it too far past a beginner’s learning phase. Hence why I want to focus this blog mainly on my path for witchcraft to boost my energy and spirit to practice witchcraft.

I do want to follow a solitary path since I am still new and learning, but am open to learning about covens and possibly joining or creating one. If you have any suggestions on books I can read to help me along on my path or steps to help to start, please feel free to either leave a comment or reach out to me on the contact form! I would love to hear from you! 😊

Thank you for reading and joining me along on my path, or just sticking around for my craft updates!

Blessed be! πŸŒ›πŸŒšπŸŒœ
