Shrine Update

Today is one of those days where I am fiddling around with what I call “replacement activities” – because I am procrastinating over the job I really need to do. I need to write an article about skiwear for my job… And so I have started off this morning with updating the shrine gallery on…

RA Pocket Shrine 230/? – Kiss with Confidence

Today is the first day of spring. In Ireland. Yes, officially. It’s St Brigid’s Day, and also the Celtic feast of Imbolc (the spring festival). This year I am opting to go for the Irish way of counting the seasons. Cos frankly, after this winter, with the darkness, the cold, the stress and the covid,…

RA Pocket Shrine 229/? – Astrov BTS

RA Pocket Shrine 226/? – Mini Boo 👻

RA Pocket Shrine 225/? – Doctor’s Orders

The whole virus-enforced retreat into our domestic lives has been really good for my creativity. Over the summer, most of my creative energy went into my Etsy enterprise, and I was busy making my mini books, or sewing face masks, or tinkering with junk journals. My shrining activities kind of fell a bit by the…

I went through them all again for the purpose of compiling the list of names to input into Randompicker. I was delighted…
