Monday. Added more mandarin peels bits to the mandarin/cloves vinegar I made last monday and shake the bottle.

Hand sew a few cotton herbal sachets for when I have fresh dried herbs from my garden.

Started 6 herb cards from A5 mixed media paper, draw lines watercolor gold/green to line 6 square small cards, small painting of herb on side and the herb name also in paint did 4...a rose, mugwort, lavender, rosemary.

Cut very fine lemon peel and more mandarin peel and leave to dry spread out on paper. The copy paper if it absorbs enough scent from the peels that too gets used as citrus spell papers.

Some leftover red candle wax from Xmas warm it au bain marie, into empty tealight aluminium cups and whilst still warm press floral shape into these. Use a cut glass bud vase for this.
Finish the hem of my cape, it is hand sewn using quilt cotton thread, made from a bolt end of a cotton linen.

Found some bolt ends online which can be used both for my hobbies , crafts, but also useful for making supplies like herbal sachets, altar cloths, wall hangings, mini bags for divination decks, fabric bags, dream pillows etc.
I have quilt cottons floral prints in my stash, but wanted plain colors. Got some tiny fabric samples those go in my junk journals.

Painted the airdry clay things I made last monday, few mini dishes round and oval, candle holders for spell candles and for tapers, a medium size paint palette but that a corner broke of moving it, so not oval anymore.
Had pressed plantago narrow leaves into the airdry clay for a pattern and some ivy leaf. Paint is white acrylic and leaves in gold.

Start a new pagan journal today forgot to do it at start of the year.

Very early start on tomorrow, inspired by a youtube video made no-bake cinnamon ornaments. Had a near empty fancy flour bag leftover from Xmas approx 1/3 cup added salt and cinnamon and some warm water formed into a dough. Rolling pin used a empty marker on small length of baking paper roll out the fragrant dough. With a milk bottle cap cut out rounds and other part roll out bit larger rounds. With a toothpick add holes to 5 of them to later add ribbon for hanging them up.
Put the 6 on piece of A5 cardboard and placed on central heating radiator to dry, video say is 36 hours drying time.

Have you made incense? Sounds like you have a garden full of potential herbs to maybe make smudging bundles or to add to some resins and oils. I personally like lavender, sage, and rosemary bundled together, and you can add rock rose, creosote, mugwort, rose petals or whatever. I have also sprinkled copal, frankincense, or dragons blood dust in the center of bundles for a little extra zip!
Also just mixing up loose incense to burn on coals is a creative outlet, made for holidays or specific spells.

Yes have made incense. I did not have all ingredients so made Not-So-Kyphi inspired by all the recipes at
https://ancientegyptonline.co.uk/kyphi/
Made cones incense once using five-spice-powder came out lopsided.
Have made small jars loose incense.
Found lots of recipes at https://incensemaking.com/

Made 2 thin smudge sticks using mugwort, marjoram, thyme inside, tied with red cotton thread..
Both lavender and rosemary plant died heatwaves past summer, but online shops
still have no stock, depend only on online shopping for all my things.

Resins recently order at one of those Lourdes in France online church supplies shops that ship to other EU countries, they sell small 10 gram bags resins and greek orthodox incense love the gardenia , so trying lots of new blends and things known to me like copal buy
bigger bag. From the dragons blood resin made small jar ink but it stay pale color.



Do not use charcoal, use small piece of fine wire metal mesh little distance over a burning tealight and sometimes resin inside the empty tealightcup on top of the fine wire metal mesh. No smoke just fragrance.

The Lourdes France shop also sells rosaries so inspired by that made some beaded pagan chaplets with leftovers czech glass beads from my hobby.

Diy today birch leaf cologne, shred leave by hand to 2/3 cup loosely packed, boiled cooled off water, 1.5 tbsp vodka
add to bottle, will shake few times daily, will wait weeks until scented then strain.

Jar infusion birch leaves fresh for my footbath for arthritis just pain cool water use tomorrow. Past weekend did lemon balm footbath.
Jar lid rusted so is cloth stiffened with water diluted white glue and ribbon tied around, to cover it.

Going to make a cup of fresh birch leaf tea, spring fresh leaf has a milder note. Rest of birch leaves drying them.

Found some nice free printables online so with diluted watercolor paints using greens some yellows to colorwash.
