Are you guys excited for THANKSGIVING!?!?? I don’t really celebrate the actual meaning of the holiday, but I love spending time with family. I can’t wait to eat some sweet potatoes!! What’s your favorite thanksgiving food?? .
After I played Deltarune I wanted to do some pixel art.
The second one is supposed to be a gif. (just checking to see if it will work here) If it doesn't work you can check it out on my DA.
Are you looking for something to read that will put the EPIC back into epic fantasy?
If you are, check out The Maiden’s Song, available from Amazon as an e-book and as a MASSIVE 760 page trade paperback!
Links and blurb below, but first, here are a few things that have been said about this book: “Not since the OZ stories or that of Heinlein have I been so tied up in the characters, where I get mad at them. To feel and clearly see in my minds eye, each landscape portrayed, each voice it's own...”—Amazon reviewer. “...Truly a tale for the ages, The Maiden's Song will wrap you lovingly within its pages and keep you spellbound. A brilliant debut for what is sure to be a brilliant series, you'll want to curl up and lose yourself in a tale spun to rival the adventures in Narnia...”—Lily Shadowlyn of www.thefaeriereview.com, October 2018 “The Maiden’s Song is...nicely written and so very detailed that it pulled me in to another world...This one is really good read...”—Amazeballs Book Addicts, November 6, 2018 “I’m addicted to this book...” Comment from a reader. “I’m obsessed...” Comment from a reader.
So, as the weather cools down and the fireplace warms up, wouldn’t you love to sink into an epic fantasy adventure that will transport you to another world and show you magick you’ve never imagined before?
Blurb from the back cover will be in comments.

I have several things I’ll be adding to the shop throughout the week as long as I can get decent pictures, but it has been hard. I think we’ve had two days of Sun in the past two weeks. Kentucky this time of year is simply, gray…
These gloomy days are perfect for soaks in the tub. Herbs, oils, and Epsom salts make this even better!
Fae Portal is my personal bath soak to lift me out of the #PMS and PPMD blues or to lift my spirits and intuition. It can be enjoyed anytime one might like to feel better or more relaxed. The main ingredient in this soak is Epsom salts.
Magnesium-sulfate is absorbed through the skin and helps to reduce water retention, bloating, pain, cramping, and stress. This soak has a gorgeous fragrance of flowers and clary sage. It takes me to a magical place whenever I need to relax and feel like being “elsewhere”. I hope it takes you there too…
Rose petals in the bath elevate the mood and soothe anxiety. In #Witchcraft , we use Roses to invite the blessings of #Fae , as they are enamored by roses. The energy of the Rose is healing, brings joy, and aids in Clairvoyance. During our #Moon times, our intuition is heightened. #Rose can aid you in tapping into that a bit more if you choose to work during that time.
Emotionally balancing Clary Sage is nourishing for the soul. It is an anti-inflammatory and offers support in reproductive health. In Witchcraft, #ClarySage is used as an instrument in developing intuition and seeking self-knowledge.
Relaxing and love inspiring Ylang Ylang is an affinity to reproductive health and the balancing of #hormones . Like roses, it is used in Fae Magic and encourages creativity, intuition, and divination.
Emotionally soothing #lavender is a pain relieving nervine and is an affinity to all body systems. In Witchcraft, we use Lavender to enhance #intuition and clairvoyance. It is also used in #Elf Magic.
Bergamot mint is added to this blend to invigorate and wake the senses that dull when we're feeling run down. In Witchcraft, mint brings clarity, focus and #psychic awareness.
Do you have a special bath or ritual that you enjoy that helps shake off the gloom #WitchesOfInstagram ?
Happy folktale week. This is a #throwback illustration and is for one of my talesfantastic stories called Service. I’ll be doing quite a few throwback illustrations this week since we are now under contract on a house and I need to start thinking about moving. Exciting! I also plan to fix my websites none of which are working right now and I don’t know how long that will take. Once I get talesfantastic back up and running you can read this story for free there. In the mean time enjoy the artwork! #folktaleweek#folktaleweek2018#forest#fae#ferret#watercolor_art
Nim was always a loner, but an annoying rabbit and pesky goldfinch started following him around. They would chirp and twitter at him all day long, gossiping about the squirrels and other birds. Goldfinch would keep perching on his back, WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION AHEM, and Rabbit would beg and beg to be held because there were lots of scary things that could eat her in the forest. Nim eventually resigned himself to their company, and one day he found that he actually enjoyed having them around. But, shh, don’t tell Rabbit and Goldfinch. That would give them more ammunition to tease him with.
Today I want to talk a little about witchcraft. That seems like such a strong word, in many ways it is, but I feel as though people think too much into it. I know witches who buy all the books, collect every crystal, and have tools to last many lifetimes. They do large scale rituals for every sabbat and moon phase, practice divination every day, and worship a whole arsenal of gods and goddesses. This is absolutely witchcraft. But this isn't the only way. It's what truly suits your needs and your lifestyle.
I started out thinking I needed all of this and more. I made my craft a collection, not a practice. But as the years went, I realized that's not me. I took myself back a few steps and thought about what I was looking for. A simple connection. A grounding. You'll notice I talk only of the Earth and Moon. I don't worship any deities. I am a friend to nature and life. I use my craft to stay focused. I don't pull out my tarot cards often as I prefer to rely on myself and the energy I feel around me. I have a few crystals and they all hold a large meaning to me personally. I live by the way of the Earth, appreciating the change of the seasons and the way the air moves me. I listen to what nature tries to tell me. I don't do big rituals, but I wish blesses upon people, throw tons of herbs into my soup, and sit next to beautiful trees. I release magick in little ways to benefit myself and others. I walk a very low key, druid path.
My point is, don't be limited by what feel you have to do solely because others are doing it that way. Witchcraft can be simply living your fullest each day. It's whatever you make it to be.

Perfect for sweeping away negativity!
Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love - that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. - George Eliot
At @yallfest I was able to receive a copy of the Wicked King by Holly Black. Last night I read it in one sitting and MY HEART. What do I do now? If you were a fan of the cruel prince, this was a perfect edition to the series. It is so whimsical and dark, and the plot thickens. There was never a slow moment for me, and I’m still processing. Remember, it comes out in January, so get those preorders in!
Thank you so much to The publicists at @thenovl for the advanced copy of The Wicked King.
Beautiful bookmarks from @tillanddill who I maaaaay or may not have ordered more prints from last night... their artwork is seriously so beautiful and high quality, and they’re having a sale that ends today! Go check them out for sure.
