Merry We Meet!!

This is my space to share, rant, rave, and even do a little bragging about my life choices, family, and where each are taking me.

Many people think 'witch' and immediately jump to the conclusion that I am some weirdo who's home smells like stale incense and thinks Mr. Potter is end all be all of magick. I hate to disappoint, but I am as normal as the next person. As much as a person can be normal.

So, please read on. Enjoy my trials and tribulations. Hopefully, you can learn something from the mistakes I make and the good fortunes that come my way.

Happy Anniversary!!

Happy Anniversary to Stay-At-Home Witchery!!

The blog has been going strong for 2 years now. There is no sign of slowing down either. Actually, this witch right here is now an official writer. WildStar Forest will be published and out in January of 2014. I will post a link to it as soon as the website is up and running.

I have never done something like this before and am semi nervous about an article I've written being posted. Funny, I know, considering that I have been blogging for 2 years now. There is just something about being paid for your work that makes me anxious. I never feel as if my work is good enough. I am my own worst critic.

Back to the blog... I have some ambitious plans for the blog this year. So long as I get my computer up and running there will definitely be a few changes. All for the better, I promise. I want to have a Q&A section for people to get to know and learn more about my lifestyle choices. I'd also like to finish some sections and pages of the blog that have been neglected due to the fact that my personal comp is STILL busted.

As for today's entry, I want to focus on personal issues that I am working on resolving. It has nothing to do with New Year's, I don't believe in resolutions. I believe in actions. My problem right now though is that I have a friend who for quite some time was so negative that I just could not deal with it anymore because of how much stress I had to deal with in my own life. I told her as much and basically shut her out of my life until I was able to get myself in a better place. My problem is, now, I am not sure on how to bring her back into my life.

I made it perfectly clear that I did not want to lose her as a friend. I just couldn't deal with her problems and my own. Negativity breeds negativity in my opinion. My husband had lost his job, I had become very ill, and the stress of the holidays was overwhelming. My question to you dear readers is, 'How do I reconnect?'. One thing I have learned on this journey of mine is to not be afraid to admit you don't know everything and that it's ok to reach out for help.

Well, I'm reaching! What do I do??

Brightest Blessings my dear readers!!

This time of year...

I get asked a lot about how I deal with this time of year and how my family and I celebrate our holidays. 

Winter_Solstice_Mistletoe_300.jpgWe celebrate both Christmas and Winter Solstice in this house. Our tree and decorations cover both holidays. Solstice is more of an immediate family celebration while Christmas is a far bigger event that includes a host of extended family. We don't shirk either holiday and we definitely do not have an issue mixing the two together. 

This is my least favorite time of year but only because of the stress that is put on everyone I know. I enjoy Solstice more only because it's more intimate and meaningful. It's not about who gets the biggest box or the newest version of whatever gaming console came out that year. It's about what Christmas should be about, family, love, and the celebration of the birth of a God. 

I still sing Christmas carols to my boys as well as solstice songs. I try to integrate both holidays together. Since we just moved into our own place we are still creating our own traditions and working out the kinks. It's an ever evolving process, just like our faiths. One tradition we never skip is writing down blessings for friends, family, and ourselves to be burned on Imbolc. It's something we started 2 years ago and thoroughly enjoy.  Since Daddy doesn't work late nights anymore I am really hoping that he will join us this year. 

Speaking of Daddy he went out of town for work recently and came home with a present for me. A beautifully aged set of antlers. Could not be more appropriate considering I will be switching the main altar over at the solstice to honor the rebirth of the God. I was super excited. 

Also, I submitted my article to WildStar Forest Magazine! I'm very excited. If you have any questions that you would like answered by me, please send them to!

Well I've been going and going since early this morning. I need to get some rest. I've been sick since my birthday earlier this month. It's been a very rough winter thus far and my lungs are NOT happy with me. 

Brightest Blessings Readers!
