Carmin & Azzerac have created "Lodestone & Lady's Mantle", a Witchcraft & Occult Supply Store, founded on the principles of organic ingredients, ethical gem stones, and handcrafted goods, with an emphasis on Artists and the discriminating customer.
Have you ever had a "clue-by-four" moment? I quit my "day job" today. Shortly after arriving, I found a coworker torturing an injured bird (he hit the glass) before breaking its neck. I came to the realization that it may not be the healthiest work environment, and handed in my resignation. That was just a proverbial straw. There was more. I mean, it was the kind of place that wears you down to a nothing-person after awhile. A big, scary step. And I gotta tell you, I haven't been this happy in years. In the ensuing panic of being ENTIRELY self-employed, I got busy.
I've spent the night (finally) getting our stuff in the Etsy Shop, including one of my personal favorites, Abra-Melin Oil. Warm, luscious cinnamon-gingery, silky myrrh. It's impossible to describe properly in words; tangible on my skin like cream.
I'm in my Polly Anna mode right now. Everything always works out. Just, keep your fingers crossed for me!
