Made this spirit doll today and I really like the way it turned out. I used the color purple to represent Cronehood. The butterfly represents the Air sign which is what I am. It has crystals, beads around hip shaw. Feathers also represent the Air sign. Tried to keep it whimsical by adding the butterfly. I burned my intention into the wood branch under the skirt. It was a fun project.
Took a walk near a pond where I work and there were feathers everywhere from Canadian Geese and of course being the GOOD WITCH I am, I picked up every one of them. It did not look like there had been a animal attack because all the feathers were in perfect undamaged condition. So, had to put together a few projects.
The first project came to mind because I am an AIR sign. This is sitting on a small altar I have in my art room. It reminds me to be light and airy in my thoughts so inspiration can easily come to me.
The second came about from a suggestion made by a friend to make a ‘Feather Smug Stick’, so figured it was a great idea. I have never made one before and I think it turned out really nice. There is something about making something yourself and adding your energy to it.
Knowing is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family. ~ Kofi Anna~
I agree in this quote. I feel education will open up a closed mind. It is important to continue learning throughout your whole lifespan. Too often people of age get comfortable and don’t strive to keep current in what is happening around them. ” If you don’t use it you lose it” …… Oh so true!
