Week Eleven

24 Oct 08 - 31 Oct 08
Days 81 through 88

Blessed Samhain! I am in a lot of physical pain right now. I made a witch costume (took 3 days!) that I was determined to wear to work today. After being on my feet for 7 hours I came home to end up trick-or-treating with my babies. I'm on the verge of tears from the pain in my feet.

My youngest had her first birthday on the 26th.

I've been taking it easy. Just waiting for the next quarter at the Pagan Campus. It starts in a couple of days -- and also in a few days are my exams for WIcca Revealed and Beginning Tarot.

Week Ten

16 Oct 08 - 23 Oct 08
Days 73 through 80

After putting off my Beginning Tarot exam, I completely forgot to do it. Silly me. I didn't finally remember about it until the 21st. I missed a couple of questions so I recieved a 92%. I'm very happy with that grade. The lessons are very intense. I'd only be disappointed if my grade was below a 90.

We're finishing up in Magickal Handcrafting. I'll be getting my certificate soon. :)

Week Nine

08 Oct 08 - 15 Oct 08
Days 65 through 72

Divination night with the Sage Circle is tonight at my house. I am super excited. They will be here soon and we get to play with all sorts of divintaion tools.

I have a few makeshift tools that I made. My Ouija board is from an old cardboard box that I just painted and laminated. I'm thinking of using it for my final project in my handcrafting class. We have to just write a paper on how we make a magickal tool.

On the 12th I took my first exam for Wicca Revealed. Got a 100 and have started studying lesson two. I'm very much enjoying this bit. I didn't know the Creation Myth, so there is something to add into my new information.

I need to start getting ready for tonight...

Week Eight

30 Sep 08 - 07 Oct 08
Days 57 through 64

I am still thinking about last week's lesson about glass and metal. Yeah, that will never happen. Let me reiterate that I am not all graceful.

This week's lesson we learned about jewelry making. I love it. I have so many idea for talismans, amulets and charms but no way of getting the supplies right now. Every time I think of beaded work I always think of Bobbi. She has such beautiful magickal peices and you can feel so much power and love in them when you hold them.

Magickal Handcrafting is finishing up soon -- by the end of this month. Our last lesson is title Finishing Touches. I've yet to even glance at it since it has no assignment, but the Final Exam will be open soon.

So I kept getting super antsy about my Wicca Revealed class that I kept going to Magicka. I ended up joining Beginning Tarot. At least with this course the exams are every two weeks and not 28 days. Right now I'm reading the history, some popular creators and decks, and the Fool.

I'm hoping all of this learning won't make my head explode.
