The Witch is in!

As for now the witch is in,

Witch is in

But soon, oh yes so very soon she’ll be going for a spin!

Going for a  spin

Just wondering which way you like my pillow best?  El natural or picmonkey grunged?

Now and then all witches need to go for a ride. . .

But this witch doesn’t leave home without her travel guide.

Now let’s take a Look inside. . .

guide collage

Ah yes, my favorite candelabra light…

helps guide the way, letting me know whether to go left or right.

Picture of me and a couple of witch gal pals.  Gives me comfort as the werewolf howls!

No good witch leaves home without a friend,

they’ll always be there no matter what, to help her body and soul mend.

When it comes time for her to shift gears. . .

She’ll listen for the caw of her crow dear.

IMG_8410

She must keep her wand and secret potions at hand…

One never knows when she might need to whip something up, or perhaps lead a band. (hey, I know I’m stretching it here )lol!

Even witches have a wish list.  I’m sure they are not much different from yours,  on this I must insist!

It’s always helpful to know the anatomy.

This may come in handy if I hit a tree!

IMG_8409

Always as I ride…Any advice is appreciated from my psychic guide!

IMG_8401

See it’s even in the cards that I take a vacation.

Advice from Morticia would be the best! 

After all, she’s the one who helped this witch pass Her test.

IMG_8411

Family and Home are always in my heart. . .They are the ones who gave this witch her start.

The next generation has a place in this book too.

After all, I won’t always be here to make a witches stew.

IMG_8413

look at that face, isn’t she the best witch in training?  This is my granddaughter, Taylor when she was 4 or 5.  She’s now 13 and what a good witch she is becoming!

IMG_8414

This post was a bit long that’s for sure…

If you want to be a witch I hope you were able to endure!

Believe it or not, I didn’t even show you the whole book.  My SIL and I made this after seeing a smaller version in a Somerset magazine.  So, so much fun!  Yes, time was involved.  But such good advice for a witch to live by!

Best Witches!

What a truly delightful post.

A lot of work went into this one, Jann - to bring such smiles.

And if you are a witch you are a very sweet and good one to be sure!

I think I like the "el natural" pic of your pillow the best.
I loved the 17 lives for the cat, wishes lol. Oh and Morticia! Too cute! So talented you are! :)

What a delightful travel guide! So much imagination went into putting this together. Your granddaughter certainly is putting her full effort into her witch training.

That book is just too darned cute. I bet the two of you had fun making that. I love the "door knob" on the front an all those cute embellishments.
