So as you can tell by the somewhat madcap title of this post, it’s been a week of acquiring stuff! I was given a new monitor for my PC, and also a new printer as my old one died from overuse :(. Not only that, but I’ve become kind of obsessed with handmade journals. I love leather journals, especially the ones that look and feel old, and with that in mind I got some from Earthworks Journals – (http://www.earthworksjournals.co.uk) and also one on eBay. A while ago I bought one from a fellow OBODie who does fantastic leatherwork, but I’m saving that as my Ovate journal. I’m thinking the Earthworks one would be an ideal Druid grade journal, so may save that too and use my eBay purchase as a current journal for my ritual work outside of the Bardic course. I prefer to have a separate book for everything as I’m a little strange that way lol. I also have what you might call a Book of Shadows that I handmade myself, to use as a reference book.
So right now I am combining the mystical powers of the Internet, technology and my ye olde looking journal to find some beautiful pictures to include within its’ pages. Then I will update it with my plans for Lughnasadh, and maybe take some photographs once I have set up the altar for Lughnasadh. 🙂
It feels lovely to have time to myself, to do things like this. I missed this kind of thing during my training year. 🙂
