This is an update by your wormwood queen webmistress – the site’s little helper fairy and Kate’s friend Beth. Right now Kate is with Ted who has been hospitalized for Meningitis. Thankfully it’s not the bacterial kind and he has been slowly showing some improvement with the medicine he’s on as his fever is slowly starting to come down. What they need right now is your prayers, good vibes, well wishes, or whatever manner of energy you believe in. I am in the process of installing a proper commenting system to the site so people can leave comments to Kate’s entries for just such a thing. (The WordPress comments function is kind of a hot mess for spammers.)
For those of you who know Kate and Ted there are other ways to offer them a little help. You know they work tirelessly from commission to commission, taught class to taught class and such to keep their wheels spinning. If you’d like to help them directly you can always give a new home to one of Kate’s wonderfully hand painted plates or tap her for a reading. You can find all of these avenues in her shop –Tea and Tasseomancy. Or help in keeping their current youth project going Good 4 Nuthin (which honestly has the best rewards entries right down to potato salad). Mostly, just letting Kate know you’re thinking of her and her family goes a long way. ;)

I just received the beautiful new Isidore Tarot Deck ( @TheIsidoreTarot ). After a long nerve wracking day I decided to pull a card for a quick reading. I pulled The Lovers…
Time to regroup and reconnect with the one you love. Life has been busy and hectic as of late. During these times it’s easy to get wrapped up in your personal dramas and forget to reach out to your partner in crime. Take time out to talk about your day, your concerns, fears and accomplishments. Make a plan of action and talk about how to work together to smooth out the rough spots in life. Don’t forget, you don’t have to do it all on your own. It’s okay to ask for help. Share the stress, then share the love!

A beautiful Solstice Tea Party tonight. We enjoyed so many amazing goodies shared by all then we set our intentions, made some wishes and sent them up to the Universe on tea rockets. It was perfect! Thanks to everyone who came out.
I just wanted to take this moment to say hello to my new visitors to my equally new site! With the help of my friend and webmistress Bethalynne, I’m getting all of my projects, art and aether-life (so to speak) collected together into one home. Eventually the contents of all of my work will be found here, neatly organized and ready to invite you to get to know me -the artist, the mother, the witch! Quite a bit of my work has already been added to the site but there is quite a bit more of it to add so please be patient as all of the sections slowly begin to fill out. In the meantime please feel free to reach out or follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr if you’d like to get to know me better. Or if you fancy a tea leaf reading or one of my hand painted pieces, you can always come see me at Tea and Tasseomancy -a place for art, tea and divination. So thank you again for your visit and please keep returning -there is much more to see and get to know!
Coming up June 22nd, 2014: We’re moving the date up a bit from the last Sunday of June to the 22nd, why? Because SOLSTICE! A time of balance between day and night, fire and water, dark and light. We’ll be celebrating balance, setting intentions and lighting tea rockets! Even Info. And remember to keep up with Surcadiana!
