My Magical Beginning

Hey y’all :wave: my name is Tosha, I’m from a small town in Missouri that consist of 8 square blocks and a grand total of 247 residents, or that is the number on the city limit sign, anyway. :joy:
I have always felt that that there was something “more or extra” about me, I however never put a whole lot of thought into whatever it was that made me different. Mostly because growing up as an overweight natural redhead had plenty of challenges in itself. So here I am at 42 just now starting my magical journey, and I am so very excited to start this new chapter of my life!


Hello :hugs: and welcome home :infinite_roots: @tosha1

It’s nice to meet you, Tosha, I’m Marsha, an Eclectic Solitary Witch, from Colorado. There is a lot of great information here, so if you need any guidance, or have any questions, let us know. I recommend starting with the courses. We are here for you, Tosha, welcome to the family :people_hugging:

Welcome to the family, we’re glad that you’re here :hugs: :black_cat: :broom: :cauldron: :sparkles:


Hi @tosha1! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum! :infinite_roots:

WHOOT! Redheads rule! LOL! Sorry, just had to do that. I was a rolly poly little redhead with no cousins in a school where everyone was related so I feel your pain. Being the odd one out is for the birds.

I second going through the courses, they’re really great. If you have any questions, just ask; someone will help. I look forward to getting to know you!


Welcome to the forum, @tosha1 :wave:

My name is Megan and I’m one of the moderators here at Spells8 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: It’s nice to meet you!

That is quite the small town you come from! I lived in a small town like that in Oklahoma for about a year when I was 19. It was definitely interesting :laughing: and I had to drive at least 30 minutes to get to the nearest grocery store, and at least 45 minutes to get to work several towns over!

However long it’s taken you, it’s never too late to start! :sparkles: I’m sure you will find plenty of information here at Spells8, as well as a wonderful, loving, and supportive community to lean on. We’re happy you’re here!
