We ALL have a personal energy (aka MAGIC✨) that sends out a "vibe" to the world and helps us see the beauty around us.


What’s the key to activating YOUR personal MAGIC? ---- CULTIVATE your curiosity.


If you maintain a curious outlook on life, your enthusiasm & passion for living grows like WILDFIRE and you attract people, situations & opportunities that assist you along your path. Be curious about learning new things and meeting more kindred spirits and you'll unlock your personal magic.

Some people interpret enthusiasm as naivete' or lack of intellect. But fun, play and imagination are NOT just for kids and artists. We ALL need to play and have fun! Having fun and using your imagination is not only good for your health, but it also brings positivity into your life.


It's time to be less serious. Ignore how others perceive you & just enjoy what makes you happy.


Claim your magical life - not to impress anyone, but just for your own pure enjoyment! Show life how grateful you are by noticing the small things.


Relishing in the wonderful small things that are available for you to experience on a daily basis will create MAGIC right in front of you.


Like the magic of a dragon fly that lands on your window and engages your sense of wonder...Take a breath, have a sip of tea, absorb the beautiful sight of the flowers in your back yard - even just for a few minutes - and fully enjoy whatever small magical moments you can.


Celebrate life EVERY day, stay magical and don't let anybody steal your sparkle!


I'm such a HUGE fan of Mena and her Instagram page, The Psychic Witch Diaries. When she asked me to be her first guest on Cauldron Chats for 2022, I was so honored! If you'd like to learn more about my artistic journey of wandmaking, you can catch the replay on Instagram.

I have really missed exploring The Resource Exchange in person, but lucky for me, they have curbside pickup!

I found these very cool antique industrial bobbins that were likely used in philly textile mills dating back to somewhere between the 1930s & 40s. Could these be any more PERFECT for making magic wands?!💕💫

I also happen to live near the Yarn Factory Lofts, which is an old textile mill turned into apartments. The previously Wilde Yarns Mill started in 1884 by 2 brothers, John & Thomas Wilde and was fully functional through 2012.

These bobbins were used on many large machines, some with hundreds of spindles, weaving various materials like wool and silk. With new techniques and the invention of plastic bobbins in the 1950s, these wooden ones became obsolete.

It seems only fitting that they are transformed into magic wands during their golden years of retirement. I am excited to see how they turn out!
