My life in the Craft is varied. Starting at the age of eight, I became bored with having read through most of the public library. That was when the Occult section leaped out at me. That was the beginning of a life-long love of learning and practice.
Since the first books I learned from were Grimoire Magic, and I learned and practiced things I shouldn't have at the age of twelve (opening dimensional portals, anyone?), I reverted to a more "new age" way of practice.
I learned herbs and herbal folklore from my grandparents (Gods rest their souls), who learned it from Natives when they lived near a reserve (my grandmother is part Welsh, and has the dark skin and hair that makes her resemble a Native Canadian--which also made it impossible to mingle with white people when they lived there, so they mingled and learned from Natives).
I also learned some folk remedies and stories from Britain (where my grandfather was born), but I don't really remember them....just vague images of a child's imagination linger.
At the age of sixteen I became interested in Wicca, having come across several of Gardner's, Valiente's, and Vivianne Crowley's books. At the age of eighteen I became a dedicant to an Alexandrian Wicca coven. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go further than that in my training, simply due to distance.
As an adult, I have run various Moots, Meets and public ritual groups. I have founded a group before, which was unfortunately disbanded due to two members' drug habits (hard drugs + Craft = BAD).
After that experience, I joined an Algard coven. I learned quite a bit, though I never was initiated (I believe the HP was intimidated by how much I knew, and who I knew in the Trad Wicca community). It turned out the HP didn't truly have lineage in Trad Wicca.
So, there I was floating along for a while, learning about Trad Craft (which got my attention), and then Hoodoo. Then I met Lindorm, and here we are today.
Aside from Craft related things, I'm a makeup artist working freelance, currently a house wife, I run a store on Facebook that sells Pagan items as well as many other things, antiquing is a huge part of my life, and reading and writing as well.
I'm always happy to meet new people, so feel free to message me and say "hi"!
