I added the picture of my wand to my first post.
I have also been inspired to craft a bag for my cards. I am going to add some beads to the crocheted bag (I hope, I have never done that before). I am also going to enchant it as I go - will see what comes to me

@maudot7 that was a lovely wand & crafting a bag for your cards is a great idea! I really need to find some projects to make use of some of this yarn I have hanging out in my house. I kind of ran out of things or people to make things for… plus I don’t know that my hands will be able to keep up anymore I think I am going to try something simple though, thank you for the inspiration to see what I can do for my practice!
@Siofra_Strega thank you I do find my hands like the crochet hook far more than the knitting needles as I get older.
I am trying a variation of the bag below that I found online. I don’t have a pattern. First time without a pattern. Exciting and invigorating and thought provoking. Probably time consuming too as I will likely have to redo it a few hundred times!
It looks lovely! Great job! I will see if I can find a way to start it again, just will have to start slow
Don’t mind me just slowly making my way through responding to entries!
@Martje That mandala is gorgeous! You chose such warm and comforting colors- it feels like a hug looking at it
@Crystal5 Your Goddess figure is so beautiful and I love your collection of charms As for who the Goddess of Creativity is, I believe any Goddess associated with creation (and many of them are!) could be considered a deity of creativity
@katnabis You were crafting and learning at the same time, and all that you learned will help you with future projects! Congrats on your beautiful deck bag- I love all the details and how you used the different fabrics!
@WitchOfTheForest You’ve stolen my breath away with all of your beautiful masterpieces- goodness, Elisa, you are one talented witch! Thank you so much for sharing all your crafts- each one of those is amazing to see. I especially love how you’ve incorporated elements of nature and the forest into your pieces
@Christeena You’re a master at potions and healing blends and it looks like you’ve unlocked yet another talent- look at you go with your painting! No need to compare to Bob Ross- these are special because they are yours I think you have a knack for colors and making things pop, which is really fun and lively Great work and thanks for sharing!
@Amethyst I want to give you extra props for overcoming any unfortunate past experiences with crafts and giving this challenge a try despite your hesitation about the theme- you’re amazing, Amethyst! Like Crystal said, floral arrangements and decorations are absolutely areas of artistic pursuit- some people go to school for years for ikebana and interior decoration! It looks like you’ve got a natural knack for it- everything looks so lovely, and perfect for the coming Sabbat! Beautiful work, Amethyst. I hope everytime you see a bright sunflower in your space that it makes you smile
@amy58 Amy, those are lovely! A set of earrings and a necklace to match- may I ask what beads you chose to use? I really like that nice deep color- is it a type of stone or crystal, or another type of bead? Thank you so much for sharing them!
@AileyGrey You found the yarn and ribbon right when you needed it- I think the Universe wants you to keep on crafting, Ailey! The hanging moon display you made is beautiful- the golden ribbons flowing down make me think of moonlight falling from the heavens So lovely!
@Jessica72 Look at that mirror! The mirror on its own is gorgeous, but paired with those affirmations and the ability to reflect love and positivity is really something else- this is amazing, Jessica! May your beautiful new mirror serve you well and always help you see the beauty and strength you have within
@jan_TheGreenWitch You most certainly passed with flying colors- bravo to you, Jan! That is such a lovely travel altar- it’s clear that you put a lot of thought into choosing meaningful and powerful things to bring with you. And you managed to pack it all so nicely into the bag too- as a fellow traveler and packer, I consider that a big accomplishment to pack so well! Beautiful work- may your travel altar serve you well!
@Satu_TheGreenWitch Each and every thing you breathe life into is a work of art, Satu- it’s a delight to see your beautiful crafts! I hope that they continue to serve you well and that everytime you see them they bring you joy. Thank you for sharing!
@Jem1 The crocheted hearts are adorable, Jem, and what a great protective decoration they will be on your altar for the upcoming Sabbat! They’re so adorable, though, that I think you should keep them up year round! Beautiful work- thanks for sharing them!
@IrisW Perfect timing indeed- your candle turned out beautiful! It’s absolutely perfect for the upcoming Sabbat too Lovely work and thank you for sharing- may your candle serve you well!
@maudot7 Congrats on your beautiful new wand, Maudot! It sounds like you crafted it with love and care and made it exactly as you wanted it to be- I know it is going to serve you well. May your wand become a trusty casting partner that will help you through many spells to come! Enjoy it- and thank you for sharing!
(Still making my way through all the amazing entries- this is to be continued!)

Congrats to the Handy Witches!
@TheTravelWitch_Bry I so impressed that you respond to each post! Thank you for taking the time and thought to make a personalized response.
I think it looks great! I’ve definitely used a gingerbread pattern to make a poppet You did a great job!
Look at you go with the deck bags! I love the colorful fabrics you chose for both bags. They really speak to your personality amazing job!
I hope the oils help you in whatever ways you need I’m glad you were able to make it around to this challenge!
I love all your little projects that you did! That little bench is absolutely adorable
Hooray for crochet inspiration!
That’s a really pretty bag! I hope you’ll show us when you’re done
@TheTravelWitch_Bry is all kinds of amazing We are certainly blessed to have her!
Thank you @MeganB.
I was really surprised that the bench turned out that good. I’m thinking about putting some moss on it to hide some of the glue.
Your crochet oracle bag turned out awesome. You are really good at crocheting.
So many great crafts this week made my idea list grow! I bought a couple sets of knitting needles at an estate sale a few weeks ago so I’ve been trying to learn knitting. I think I still prefer crochet
Have a great day
Thank you, they actually help keep me grounded & present because I don’t put them all in one area, so every time I move one scent is stronger than the other or the one scent is stronger in some areas & not as strong in others areas at other times. It’s hard to explain, but it keeps me from floating away so I’ll take it!
@Sarall – I think moss would be a good addition to the little bench and thank you for the compliment on my bag! It’s nice and soft and fits perfectly! I’ve always wanted to knit because I feel like there is so much more that can be done with knitting but alas I prefer one hand over two
Interesting! I kind of get what you mean I might have to try something similar.
I’ve learned a lot in the last 6 months. It’s just finding how to use what for the best results in different situations. If I think of any other things I’ll let you know!
Also sometimes tweaking things so they also work with my practice is always a benefit
Thank you so much! I’m glad I tried this!
Look at Tunisian crochet! If knitting and crochet had a baby, it would be Tunisian crochet. I tried it recently and it was kind of fun. Alas, I have it up because the project was huge and it was frustrating, but I’d like to try it again on a smaller scale soon!
Honestly I didn’t have much time but I started thinking what I would like to conjure up in my life and used some symbols that are magickal!
I made a spells 8 candle awhile ago and I push out all the negative energies out while I turn the candle counter clockwise direction then I say clockwise bringing in all the light and bringing prosperity and protection to all of my spells 8 family and infinite roots family
You can do it with tissue paper too here is how to do it!

I just wanted to say u all did beautiful work and you all inspire me so much! With love and honor I honor all of you!
Love and light
I’ve made a few things with Tunisian crochet! I just haven’t ventured too far into it I feel like I would need to work with finer yarn and that’s not something I’m used to. I generally work with a DK or worsted weight, usually never anything less than a 4
