The 3rd Annual ConjureCon is vastly approaching! And I am EXCITED!
*Shame on me for not blogging about this epic event ahead of time... Sorry! *
It is one of my more favorite events to attend not only for the valuable education and instruction given by some of the best teachers of their communities and craft, but also for the amazing friendships made along the way.
It also helps by being held inside one of the most magical places in Santa Cruz, California at Serpent's Kiss Magick Shop & Botanica.
And let me just say or warn you now (for those who have not yet been to the shop), You may need to cash out your 401K because the products in Serpent's Kiss are A May Zing! It's really hard to practice good self control in that place.
*You Have Been Warned*
haha.. no seriously
My Personal Favorites:
(I CANNOT get enough of these products!!!)
I spray this on EVERYTHING.
I use it as a daily dressing on myself as well as one of the final sprays on my family's head stone when I go to clean it.
It's like a Spiritual American Express Card; I don't leave home without it!
These Florida Water Incense Cones smell sooo good! I wanted to shove a cone up each nostril and call it a day. Rest assured that didn't happen... But I was tempted.
Don't try that at home. Or in their store. Or at all.
The Peace Water... OK, This product is what I envision how the Virgin Mary would smell like if she appeared to me.
I cannot give it a better description than that. Words don't do it justice.
And now these little beauties will be available at ConjureCon!

Cant wait to get my mitts on one of those!
OK... I will blog about the store in its entirety in another post. Sorry got a little side tracked there for a sec
