My DD is lunakitty and yes she did participate last time round. I was so envious - she had such a good time. It's what got me to join the site and then this swap. It was perfect timing. She's so talented and I love what she does. I feel inspired.

Awesome! I was thinking it was the talented Lunakitten when you mentioned that your grandmother was a water witch, she had that in her questionnaire also. Anyway, it's super cool that you joined! Luna was a great swap partner and spoiled me rotten! I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Cheesy

*****ORGANIZATIONAL NOTE*****

Just letting everyone know that the wonderfully generous and talented
Saturn
has volunteered to be an additional co-organizer!

She has agreed to co-ordinate the card swap portion of this swap and will be starting a seperate gallery with more information on that once the participant list is totally consolidated and ready to send out.

thank you Saturn! I know you will do a great job and I am looking forward to working with you!

ooooooh I'm getting excited already! I bought a box of blank cards and envelopes last year at Joann's and now I know why LOL! I'm hitting up the papercraft board and google for ideas! Robotarsonist ... what part of VA are you from? (yes, I peeked at your profile) I was born and raised in Hampton until 10 years ago. So I can understand all too well about needing a network.  Smiley Welcome to all new swappers!

Blessings

I've lived all over Northern VA, but currently I live in the Dumfries/Woodbridge area. I know that there are covens and meets and such in DC and I met a few Pagans that ran a shop in Old Town Alexandria when I lived there but most of the Pagans I've met in this area are very uptight. Like "there is only OUR path and yours is an insult to the Goddess" sort of mentality which is a complete turn off. There was a coven in Occoquan that wanted me to join but I didn't want to pay several hundred dollars for classes to be trained in their tradition when it didn't really match up with my beliefs. Having said allll that, I like it here. All the happy crafty different but accepting people here make me want to form a network again. Smiley

It's very comforting to know there are others accepting of different paths: the Goddess has many faces and it is so our individuality can embrace the light. I love learning about other paths and often incorporate items that appeal to me. I think it makes me a better witch and a better person. I lived in Virginia for a year and so enjoyed the availability of supplies and the more relaxed atmosphere.
We had a store here disguised as a coffee shop. She had a "back room." She didn't last long. We still have KKK burning things on people's lawns - it's disgusting in this day and age.
My coven is me, myself, and I - no probs, no outlandish expenses - and it's my way of the highway lol. So far there hasn't been any rebellion amongst the ranks, but you never know. Smiley
Bright Blessings this sunny morning.

We don't have anything even remotely close to a store or such here - unless you count me. And I don't have a store so you can't really count me.

to give you an idea of how backward this place is - we have one gay bar, and it is still in business only because they opened after the casino did, and the town fathers are so busy trying to shut down the casino I don't think they have noticed that the gay bar IS a gay bar yet, LOL!

so a metaphysical store is really a reach.

we used to have a "head shop" that sold some incense and such things, but they went out of business long ago.

the bead stores sell mostly glass beads and don't even carry as many stone beads as Hobby Lobby - which saddens me.

I do get to Omaha fairly regularly, and there are a lot of "bead shops" there which have some new age type things in addition to the beads, at least one tattoo parlor that has an altar room, a store in the Old Market that is very pagan/wicca friendly but looks like a good old fashioned hippy hang out with so much tie dyed and reconstructed clothing for sale, LOL! They sprinkle the entrances with thier own concoction, and unbelievers rarely enter or if they do they leave fast, LOL!

and several stores that are eclectic enough that they don't look like they are supply stores for the pagan/wiccan community unless you are paying attention - lots of crystals, stones, incense, oils, salts, and candles of all sorts, and a variety of tarot decks, books about crystals, and metaphysical books interspersed with books on herbs and just an interesting mix of other topics, and "journals" that are actually BoS's - all mixed in with a lot of statuettes of mythical creatures, fairies and angels, T-shirts, and some very mundane items.

If I didn't have a couple of kids that were active in the pagan community there, I would never have found these places though.

sigh...

It is a sad state of affairs. If you want tarot cards, you go to Barnes and Noble. Rocks we wait till April and go to the CheHanna Rock Club show - they will cut geodes right in front of you. There is a mixture of raw and polished, jewelry and unset. I try to stock up. There are two older women with a "health food store" called 911 Earth. They carry crystals. I agree, I think they're left over hippies - there's a lot of hemp products. Oh does she have chocolate though from all over the world. I buy Aztec/Mayan chocolate for my classes - chocolate w/ chili peppers in it.
Candles we make or I buy and then "treat." Our local health food (not the 911) carries dried herbs. Herbs Everlasting is a woman on a dirt road with a small "nursery" and I can get plants and dried from her until it gets real cold. After that it's online.
I find we get real creative looking for supplies. NEver let it be said that we aren't a crafty bunch - pun intended. lol
Have a great day!
Blessed Be

Now I feel really lucky.  I live in a small town near a city (though I am smack dab in the Bible belt) I was blessed enough to find this wonderful Metaphysical shop who had a booth at the local Ren faire.  Even better, they had a flyer for a local church that holds full moon rituals and new moon classes.  Have to check it out soon (don't want to take the dd the first time until I feel it out so I have to wait for hubby to watch her).  Now, when I lived in Fairbanks, whole different story.

Sorry,  I have a definate love of rambling on.  Grin
