Some gifts keep on giving... Cliché, I know, but that doesn’t make it untrue.
Precious Winter Solstice Gifts…
1. Peace of Mind from Papi – my dad had surgery a couple of weeks ago. He knew about the procedure for a while, but didn’t tell me about it until it was completed, and he was safely home. Some might see his behavior as a terrible thing, but Papi knew I had been stressing out about a lot of other things, and he wanted to lighten my load. Can you tell why I love the man so much?
2. A book edited by my Piano Man and written and illustrated by the Little Princess – this present had me in tears. I was reading and crying. It was just perfect. I will write a full length review of the text very soon. Right now, I must share a bit about the talented writer’s bio: “[The Little Princess] studies writing at Pearls Yonkers School.” Her very own charming words, isn’t she adorable?
3. Lavender Felted Soap from Grandma and Papa – I’m sure you know I was sniffing and screaming. My first soap of the kind, can’t wait to enjoy it!
4. Wand, Lavender and The Green Witch Herbal from Familiar Creations by Mina and her Hubby – the wand is shaped as a helping hand; it touched my heart and lifted my soul in a moment of extreme need. The lavender found its way to my pillowcase, and the book, well… I’m grinning at it with pure witchy reader’s lust. Even the cover looks delicious, yum!
5. A Zombie’s Guide to the Holidays from Zombie Girl Shambling – You just can’t have a holiday without zombies. Ask goddess from Sugar and Cyanide, she’ll tell you all about it. Thanks Dana!
6. The Spirit of Flight and a Moon Goddess Journal from Peter Pauper Press – this was one of those unexpected surprises, and it made me smile. I love Josephine Wall’s art, and adding the visual stimulation to a book and a journal is just brilliant.
7. I would list the holiday cards, books, gift cards, Kindle bucks… but you’ll probably beat me senseless for having to read about it all, so I’ll just say Thanks sooo much to everyone who brightened my Winter Solstice. You didn’t have to, and that’s what makes the whole bit so freaking amazing!
Lyn from the Witch Blog had a great idea, and I’ve joined in the fun, for I like to think that I Can Change ONE Thing (in my life). Instead of resolutions, she has decided to change one little thing at the time each month. I’m better when I compartmentalize my to dos, what about you? Will you try it?
Staying Off My Broom in 2012…
I was wicked, wicked, wicked during the Winter Solstice week. But there was pie, chocolate, mangoes... and, um... grapefruit! I know what you are thinking, Grapefruit, Magaly? Really? Trust me, luvs, after you eat 5 grapefruits in less than a couple of hours, bits of your body start wondering what’s going on. The rest of my hot witchy me remains wonderful, though. And I enjoyed being off my broom so much that’ll stay that way for 3 more months!
A Spellbinding Gift for You…
Guess what, my Wicked Luvs? Peter Pauper Press wants to spread that giving feeling, and I’m delighted to oblige.
I rarely accept giveaway proposals from individuals who don’t actively follow Pagan Culture, but the letter—and the little extras—Suzanne Schwalb added to my Creepmas winnings were just too sweet not to extend to you.
