My name is Debra, but on forums, I usually go by Puppet Mama. I am 42, almost 43. I’m autistic. I’ve been studying and practicing magic for 29 years. I’m in the broom closet, mostly because I not only live in Alabama (part of the Bible Belt), but also because I live in the same neighborhood as my parents, one of my aunts, one of my great uncles, and most of their children. And let me tell you, they are all conservatives and all Christians.
Besides witchcraft, I’m into Five Nights at Freddy’s, fashion, Barbies, Barbie fashion, and Whole Food Plant Based vegan cooking.
I have three autistic children. One of whom has graduated. The other two are in school. We homeschool and have since the oldest was old enough to start their journey of education. We have our good days and our bad days. This year, we’re adding magic to the curriculum. They are old enough to get what’s going on and to not talk about it in front of the rest of the family. My middle child is very resistant to new ideas and change and isn’t sure how to feel about the subject. But my youngest is loving it!
I’m married. He is also a practitioner and has studied and practiced for about the same amount of time as myself. We also have a dog. She is an English Shepherd and a rescue. Someone just dumped her out in the country, but we took her in and never looked back.
So a little about my practice: I consider myself eclectic with a heavy concentration on cottage witchery. I love kitchen magic, house magic, hygge, self care, and divination. I’m having trouble thinking of anything else at this time, so I’m going to wrap it up here. Feel free to ask me anything.
