Each recipe is unique to its own and each magical working full of love and energy and always made when the moon is right.
I have had many magical things happen in my life and experienced many unexplained events. I believe whole heartedly in the spirit that embodies everything around us and within us. I believe in earth angels, guardian angels and ghosts. I believe in fairies. I believe in signs. I believe in soul mates and kindred spirits. I believe in rituals and praying. I believe in positive energy. Most of all I believe in magic.
Her realm is the birch forests, birch being the tree of beginnings and endings. Baba Yaga represents the power of old age, the power of the archetype of witch, and most of all, the power of the cycles of life, death and rebirth. Although she is mostly portrayed as a terrifying old crone, Baba Yaga can also play the role of a helper and wise woman. The Earth Mother, like all forces of nature, though often wild and untamed, can also be kind. In her guise as wise hag, she sometimes gives advice and magical gifts to heroes and the pure of heart. The hero or heroine of the story often enters the crone’s domain searching for wisdom, knowledge and truth. She is all-knowing, all seeing and all-revealing to those who would dare to ask. She is said to be a guardian spirit of the fountain of the Waters of Life and of Death. Baba Yaga is the Arch-Crone, the Goddess of Wisdom and Death, the Bone Mother. Wild and untamable, she is a nature spirit bringing wisdom and death of ego, and through death, rebirth.
Baba Yaga rules over the elements. Her faithful servants are the White Horseman, the Red Horseman and the Black Horseman. She is a goddess of wisdom, rebirth, magick, she has much to teach you, protection, especially protection of the home. This is the perfect ritual oil to be used in the fall and spring as it draws upon death as well as rebirth. “

Our second ETSY giveaway for the book Haunted by Joy Preble was graciously donated by shop owner StudioMME… “I’m a girl from the frigid land of North Dakota who just moved to sunny San Jose. I play with pens and lots of ink. I like ice cream, chocolate, and just about every type of cereal. The Grimms and Edward Gorey were my bedtime stories when I was a kid and it’s safe to say that they influenced me quite a bit.

My artistic portfolio can be found at:
My quirky little shop contains prints of my original illustrations, canvas bookmarks, note cards, and a few notebooks.
Description: This little ‘redo’ notebooks features my illustration, “Baba Yaga“. All of us wish life were full of redos, and that’s exactly what I’ve given these prints. Occasionally my printer decides to spit out a stray drop of ink, making a print unacceptable for a buyer to purchase. Over time these ‘marred’ prints began to build up until one day I had the idea to give them a redo. Now these prints are back and better than ever as mini notebooks. Made with lightweight cardboard and lined with black pastel paper, these little notebooks feature 20 pages of Strathmore 400 drawing paper. Excellent for note-taking or small sketches. The notebook measures roughly 4.5″ x 6″.

Baba Yaga is sickened by the destruction and corruption humanity has spread across the natural world. She recognises mankind has become a plague upon the Earth, and her duty is clear: to cleanse the planet and rid it of the pestilence of Man. Billi is sent to stop her, but does she have the right?
Betrayed and alone, Billi faces a final mighty battle in the abandoned ruins of Chernobyl. Out in 2010.
