Merry meet all,
Recently on the weekend I had some fun. I attended the long awaited book launch where I gave a poetry reading of my now published poem. The poem was titled The Sawbug’s Toil. I then signed what seemed like 300 copies of the book Whispers of Mermaids and Wonderful Things by Sheree Fitch and Anne Hunt.
The book launch was a success. I am proud to have been a part of that. I look forward to new opportunities. I received a book I won in the mail titled Gideon by Alex Gordon. I shall enjoy the book, I am sure.
Yule is right around the corner. I spied snow on the ground. I have been preparing for Yule. I went on a long nature walk the other day. I enjoyed walking through the paths, gorgeous autumn trees hanging overhead, and the crisp chill hint of winter in the air. Twigs cracked underfoot, squirrels chirruped, and leaves fluttered to the ground. I collected pine cones by the Armdale ocean and acorns. I found a crab shell and a mollusk shell too.
I plan to use the pine cones and acorns for Yule. I have begun an herbal yule spice jar for a friend for Yule. When I get my money, I plan to buy holiday fabric and start making gifts and decorations for myself and others. I am eager to get started. I have a pattern for a Yule stocking and browsed through my fave fabric store for inspiration. I was excited to discover that Fabricville had everything I need to get started. All I need is some cash.
For my herbal spice jar for a friend, I blended a pine cone, dried orange, cinnamon, nutmeg, pine needles and added it all to a jar. I will add the dried pomegranate rind to the mixture. I want to decorate the jar. The library books about crafts that I borrowed will help me with decorating the jar.
I shall post more here about preparing for Yule.
Blessings, Spiderwitch )O(
