Blessed Solstice!



UPDATE on what’s going on with the Hearth.

Currently, the shop is down, as work is taking up a lot of my time and has messed up my hands. But the Facebook page will remain up as a community page, and The Raven’s Hearth on YouTube will still exist, but as segments of my main channel, TheRockinRaven.


I have been working a… well, let’s just say a factory job. I started 4 weeks ago, and haven’t been able to do a piece of art since. This place is doing a number on my hands. Today, it hurts to even carry a lightweight folder.

Before I started this job, I was doing crosses out of yarn and plastic canvas. They are quite popular with the kids at my daughter’s school, so I thought about making them for the shop for the Christian Witches. I am currently working on a large rainbow cross that I started right before I started working. Like I said, that was about 4 weeks ago. I’m not even halfway done. I can’t even hold the canvas without pain or my hand going numb.

The nurse at work said that this is NORMAL. It’s really normal to be in pain or go numb every time I do something around the house? It’s normal for me to wake up every morning not able to feel my hands?

I don’t recall anyone else complaining of numbness.

I’m not even sure if I can keep my store. I don’t know when or if I can create anything more.

I don’t know how to feel about that.


Witch in a Cemetery

It sounds like a stereotype. But Witches really do like to hang around cemeteries. But not for any creepy reasons that you might think.

To put it plainly, cemeteries are peaceful. That’s the long and short of it. The only other people who are there more than likely aren’t going to talk to you unless you talk to them first, if their spirits are still hanging around. My family and I experienced that on an earlier visit to one very old section of a cemetery.

The photos here though, are from a more recent visit to a cemetery with a friend and her daughter.







“Ghost Trees”

I went for a walk yesterday with the child that I babysit. We came across some trails, and as we walked, these guys appeared almost like ghosts among all the other regular brown trees.

The second picture, I had to take. There was something artistic about the tree. And I could SWEAR it was like it was breathing.


I have 4 colors of Witches Runes in the oven right now. Purple, green, silver, and glow-in-the-dark!

I have two witch dolls finished, little crows planned, and a witch figure planned. I hope to have my shop open soon!

We’re expecting a big snowstorm tonight. Keep your fingers crossed that it’s not too bad.


It is 1/27/2015, and it’s cold, my house is a mess, and I am crafting instead of cleaning. That’s about to change though, I promise. But I have lots of creations planned!

I also have a queasy witchling, who is currently playing games on my phone, hundled under a blanket on the couch.

I am right now sewing together a boot for one of the dolls I am making. They’re taking forever but it’ll all be worth it in the end.

My facebook page now has a secret group for people who feel more comfortable chatting in a more closed off and safe environment. It’s only been up for less than a day, but it’s starting to grow already.
But earlier this morning, a voice was saying, “Seriouly? Are you sure about this group? Don’t you have enough to do already?” Yes, Goddess, I know. But I felt the need to do it. Since then, the voice has backed off a little.

She wants me to keep doing my art. She and her God are calling me to do this, and I must take heed.

Merry Meet!

Welcome to The Ravens Hearth!

The Ravens Hearth is a place for pagans (and even open-minded non-pagans) to hang out.  Let’s talk about the deities. Let’s share recipes! Let’s share music! It’s also a place to sell my handmade creations.


Do you have  a ritual, spell, activity, or recipe to share? Submit them with your first name to and I will post them (after I review them)!


This site should have something for all ages. There is a kids page, but parents, as you already know, please watch your children while they’re on the internet (the “Myths and Truths” page has more adult content).


This site will hopefully continue to grow! Enjoy your stay! Blessed Be!
