All Things Book of shadows (part 2)

Today lets talk types of Books, or I should say “books”. There are many ways to keep your own book so today I am going to share with you all of the versions I keep.

This is one I am holding on to right now but it is not mine. It is a Coven book and so everyone contributes to it and can take it and copy or add what they like. We decided to do it in binder form just because it is easiest.

My DOS (stolen name from Elfkat!) or at least all my computer files that pertain in any way to the spiritual, magical me. If you look closely you can see the folders are arranged just like the pages of this blog. Book of Days, Book of Flora and Fauna etc.

Which of course brings up this blog. I named it this for a reason 🙂 This is a public book for me. I share all parts of my life. As I move through the time I add more and more making this book bigger and better. Plus I get to share other people’s works which makes it way better. Everyone has different talents and I don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

My physical Book of Days and day planner.

My pretty book. This is the one that sits on my Altar and then one with all the pretty pictures in it. I have talked a lot about it previously but I want to revisit and re-edit some of that now.

I started this current book because the book was given to me by my then student. She had made a beautiful book with one like this and so I thought there is not time like the present to make one.  I looked at some online and at the other ones in my library and decided that drawing is not my forte. I had also just learned about soul college and liked the idea of that. I also (like almost every witch I have ever talked to) Liked the Practical magic Spell Book.  Which I thought I remembered had layers of pages. pages stuck in or put on top of other pages.

With that in mind I started making this book. It didn’t matter if I made a mistake because I could just cover it up. Every layer and every mistake was part of me and since this was a book of me not matter what I did it would be perfect.

After I had done some work on it and started showing it to people I started hearing “oh its and art journal” to which my response was to google art journal. Wow are they pretty!  Feel free to google away, but I will be sharing some really good pics and tutorials tomorrow.

That brings me to my last book.

This was a practice type book. I would just put in what ever I felt at the moment with very little rhyme or reason. So I have decided to turn this in to a true art journal.

That is it for today. More on art journals tomorrow 🙂

  1. A book for every day and a day for every book.

  2. I love the celtic tree of life design on the Book of Days and Day Planner! My husband gave me a tree of life design that is similiar in steel. His welding instructor helped him use a machine to cut it out. It brought tears to my eyes. Trees are my everything. Keep up the great posts!

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
