I woke up this morning with a wonderful idea. It will be a boon to all involved. It is also just a wee bit sneaky on my part but I'm sure the Goddess will forgive me. Especially the Goddess Minerva who is the deity watching over my craft room. Actually, I believe it was Her who gave me the idea.
Every March 19th I hold a feast and rededication of my craft room as a Temple to Minerva. Minerva is a Roman Goddess counterpart to the Goddess Athena. Minerva is the embodiment of crafting, wisdom, and ingenuity.
This year our theme will be "Cleanse the Temple".
Do see the sneaky part now?
I will be bringing out a ton of supplies, spreading them out on the dining room table, and letting my Sisters have first dibs. We are a crafty bunch. All of the do dads will be put to good use. This was my original plan when I dedicated the Temple but few take me up on it. I wanted to create a space where teachers and students could find what they need. Hmmm, maybe there's a hint there. Organize so that they can find what they need. Right now it is a lovely chaos of treasure that serves me well. The hunt is the best part for me but not user friendly for the visitor.
I get plenty of donations to the Temple but it has become stagnant of late. Well, push will come to shove soon so that the ebb and flow can resume.
By the way, none of it will be going back into the temple. We will sort it and package it and take it to the resource center. The one in Ft. Lauderdale, "Trash to Treasure" has closed. I guess the ebb and flow was not maintained there either. The one in West Palm seems to be doing well so, "Field Trip!!!" They hold Art Exhibits there too. I wonder if they would be down for a Plarn class or a Wyllde Magick Collective event featuring recycled materials.
Be it Minerva's will, So Mote It Be!
Stay Crafty, Opal Luna
