I needed to find a way to keep my toddler out of the goods. I can’t afford to buy all new furniture. So I repurposed a jewelry mirror I was not really using for anything special.

It’s actully turned Into quite a blessing. Perfect area for my daily reflections.

I love this challenge, it actually made my creative begin to flourish! I went to the dollar store and walked through the store with a different mindset. I came home with votive candles 4 for a dollar and many candle holders today I am using my essential oils and dried herbs like rosemary to anoint the candles for different reasons like abundance, love ,protection ect. Then I looked through my home with that same mindset. I don’t have a cauldron but I found an old tea service with a sugar bowl that has no top presto I now have a cauldron! It’s small but it works for what I need,


Thank you for this challenge

So Iam a thrifty witch, I love second hand shops, garage sales and the dollar tree. I love to create, and Iam usually learning new art forms and prepping for the next sabbat. This week my neighbor asked if I wanted to grab some sage and rosemary, I was like I will be right over. Her beds had grown overboard spilling out and into other areas.

so I have been making bundles with my sage, prepping some for culinary: oils, vinegars, and add to my spices and of course my magical pantry. Trying to save the thicker branches for some beads, a wand, ogham and soaking them and making a small basket. Also Iam part of several witchy groups on fb. I also spend my nights reading, sourcing or coloring. I have the coloring book of shadows by Amy Cassari. And love this sites lunar ritual program.

I am about to post a spell I did that literally cost me zero dollars, as I had all the items either gifted to me, on hand already, or right out of my own garden. It’s called Rose Water Rite.

Yesterday we made candles :fire: using old jam jars, left over wax, essential oils and herbs from the garden.

Luckily, I found some wicks in my craft box from last Xmas :christmas_tree:so the whole project was free :blush:

They smell gorgeous! :heart_eyes: But I can’t light them yet as my husband has stolen my “woo lighter” and taken it to work :joy:
