Ancestor Blessings ~ Amulets and Enchantments and Readings

Last year I received an overwhelming great response to the Ancestor Blessing services I offered. This year I am offering these same amazing Ancestor Blessing items again. And I am extending the time I will walk between the veils and do this sacred work for you.

Now through November 30th I am creating these special
Amulets & Enchantments at a special price!

Each Amulet and Enchantment is handcrafted by me using white cloth,
herbs, roots and other curios sacred to working with the Ancestors.

I also hand-embellish each one with beads, ribbon and thread. Your Ancestor Protection Amulet and Enchantment will include hand-made skull and "evil eye" beads, clear/white, purple and red beads.

The Ancestor Blessing Amulet can be hung in your home or placed on an Ancestor altar to bring the protective blessings of the Ancestors to you.
$10 (regularly $13) plus shipping

The Ancestor Blessing Enchantment comes with a small "side-car" mojo bag that you can fill with the graveyard dirt of your Ancestor or a trinket that was special to your Ancestor.
$30 (regularly $45) plus shipping

Ancestral Readings
November 6th - November 30th

I will be doing Ancestral Spirit Consultations for those
are interested between 11/6 and 11/30.

These readings/consultations must be done over the phone or in-person. This is not a seance or channeling. I will be working with my Ancestral Spirit, Mama Da, to connect with your Ancestor's spirits during this auspicious time of the year.

Ask questions about your spiritual path. Get insight into the coming year. Receive information from the Ancestors and Spirits.

Consultations are 45 minutes to an hour. If you have a photo of an Ancestor that you want to email me that would be great. After completing your consultation I can conjure an Ancestor Blessing Amulet or Enchantment based on the insight and gifts received during your consultation.

Consultation Only : $75
Consultation & Amulet: $85 (includes shipping)
Consultation & Enchantment: $105 (includes shipping)

cookie recipe

I guess the cookies made a few mouths water so here is the recipe. I can't claim it. I got it from my big Mrs. Field's Cookie book. The recipe is for making them into crescent shapes, which I do sometimes but usually am too lazy. Rolling them into balls is much faster.

Snowy White Chocolate Crescents

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder, unsweetened

  • 1 stick (½ cup) salted butter, softened

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ cup confectioners’sugar

  • * Preheat oven to 325°

  • * In a small bowl, combine flour and cocoa. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.

  • * In a medium bowl, cream butter ans sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add vanilla and egg, and beat until light and smooth. Scrape down sides of bowl, then add flour and cocoa mixture. Blend on low speed until fully incorporated. The dough with be dry and crumbly.

  • * Shape a level tablespoon of dough into a 3½-inch log. Slightly bend the log to form a crescent shape. Form remaining dough into crescents, and place on ungreased baking sheets, 1 inch apart. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until the outside of cookie is hard but the center remains soft.

  • * Cool on pan for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to a flat surface to cool a few minutes more. While still warm, roll the cookies in confectioners’ sugar until coated.

My variations over the years:
  • rolling them into balls instead of crescents
  • making them with spelt flour (half white spelt/half whole spelt)
  • making them with sucanat or agave
  • using only 1/2 cup of sugar/sucanat
  • using almond extract instead of vanilla extract (and adding a bit more to make them almondy yummy)
  • adding a dash of cinnamon to the recipe
  • using a scant 1/4 of apple sauce instead of the egg
Also, I think letting them cool 2-3 minutes before rolling in the powdered sugar is too long. They need to be warm (but not hot) for the powdered sugar to stick well.


the moon is made of chocolate...

You've heard the saying that the moon is made of cheese? Well, I beg to differ. I think the moon is made of chocolate...deep delicious warm chocolate covered in powdered sugar.

These are my full moon cookies for tonight's ritual. I figured it was close enough to the full moon to make 'em. Besides, who needs an excuse to eat chocolate?

Recent client work...

I have been really busy lately with client work as well as doing my own spiritual work to further enhance my personal spiritual path. So, I haven't had much time to but a blog post together and figured I would do a quick update with photos of recent client work.

Here goes...
5/22/10 - The working altar with all kinds of client work going. The two glowing candles on each side are skull candles for separate client cases. A few novena candles set for various purposes, mojos charging, etc.

A Custom Conjured All-Powerful Mojo Bag created for an extra special client.

One of the newly created original candle label designs now available at Pumpkin Cottage Conjure. This Steady Work Cottage Candle has been dressed and blessed and is being set for the special client mentioned above.

Look for a blog post soon about other new products and services being offered at Pumpkin Cottage Conjure.

Sometimes a binding spell is in order. This is the beginnings of a binding spell to stop a nasty person from doing more harm. Putting them in dirty murky water, then freezing until the next step.

First real harvest of herbs (and a couple of gerbera daisies for the altars). Here we see basil, purpose sage, rosemary, sweet woodruff, italian parsley and lemon verbana. If only computers came with smell-o-vision!

That is all for now.

Look for a product and services update post soon!

Her Sacred Fires - A Rite for Hekate

On May 27th hundreds of people around the world participated in a worldwide honoring of Hekate. The Rite was created by Author and Hekate Priestess Sorita d'Este.

I was one that joined in on this amazing worldwide ritual. I incorporated this ritual as part of my 13 Moon Dedication to Hekate. Hekate has been calling me for a few years. I find her to be very patient with me as I felt my way around the proper ways to honor her in my personal spiritual path. It seems that Hekate also wants to have a place in the Scarlet & Amethyst Temple and Tradition and I am honoring her wish.

Below are some photos that I took during my personal Sacred Rite to Hekate.

Her Sacred Flame.

Definitely check out Hekate: Her Sacred Fires website for more information and for information about Sorita's books.

Spring Renewal

Last weekend a few Goddess sisters came to Pumpkin Cottage for a Spring Release and Renew Ceremony. The ceremony was to help us release those things which no longer serve us and to replace those things with wonderful new manifestations.

The ceremony was in honor of Yemaya, the Scarlet & Amethyst Temple Mother Goddess. I honored each sister with a cleansing hand and foot wash.

We banished those things we did not want in our lives anymore and we dressed a candle to bring the blessings of our New Moon wishes.

I created these candles for the ritual and each sister went home with their own candle to burn on their altars.

I finished the ceremony the next day by taking the offering we made for Yemaya to the river for Oshun to take to the ocean.

It was a wonderful ceremony full of love and healing.

I am creating a learning circle for local women who are interested in doing ritual on a regular basis and who also want to learn more about the Scarlet & Amethyst Temple and Tradition. The learning circle is called Spirit Sisters and will be a Goddess-centered ritual group that creates and manifests sisterhood and magick.

If you are local and want to join us, please email me.

Continued Blessings...

New features and services...

A new way to book a spiritual consultation (aka reading) with me! Check out for the new appointments tab (found on the right side of your screen).

This is the easiest and quickest way to schedule your phone appointment with me (in-person appointments need to be scheduled via phone or email).

For details on how to use the appointment tab visit

I expanded the light setting service to include 1 Day Novena Candle Burnings. 1 Day Novena Candles set on our altars generally burn between 1-3 days and are great for specific purposes such as job interviews, travel protection, school tests, court dates, etc.

As always...candles burned on our altars are set with petitions and prayed over daily. You will receive a emailed report of your candle burning once it is finished.

Dollar store altars!

Today I went to Dollar General to pick up some miscellaneous necessities. I know I am not the only one who goes into these dollar stores and comes out with things you didn't know you needed.

I found myself standing in the aisle with the artificial flowers...just staring at them...not knowing why. Finally after a few minutes of being dumbfounded I grabbed two bunches of fake flowers and went on my way.

When I got home I realized what the flowers were for. Santisima Muerte and Yemaya both wanted some beautification done to their altars. And since I am good little Spirit server...

Santisima Muerte (Holy Death) altar

client work and altar tending

Yesterday I set these candles for clients. One (left) for money. On (right) for love. The candles are burning bright and strong which is a good sign.

Today I am tending to (in other words cleaning) altars. My working altar, dedicated to my Ancestral Spirit, Mama Da, gets especially messy. I use this altar daily...burning candles, burning incense, setting lights for clients, conjurin' mojos, crafting spells. So, yeah, it gets dusty and messy easily.


The altar is always adorned with a white altar cloth. White altar cloths demand sacrifices of loose herbs and incense, dripping candle wax, and sometimes they really love to be singed.

I decided, since I am breaking out ye olde sewing machine to create some new items for The Moonlit Sea (and Pumpkin Cottage Conjure), to make a quickie new white altar cloth.
