The Ladies of the Bone Lord
Hearths around the houses lit; A call to those who have no names, And warm welcomes to those who fit, Around the Hearthfire’s brightest flames. We’ll pass the Bread and food around, And fill our mouths with ravenous speed- Splayed upon the couch and ground, Our stomachs filled with Mead.

what if using cinnamon to make runes/sigils on cinnamon toast and activating by consuming them. you could do good health because it's going in your body, or for a good coming day since it's breakfasty, or for speech/communication since it goes in your mouth. or cinnamon associations. or no particular associations. but TOAST. I LOVE TOAST.

Okay. Anon. Okay.

I like this idea. Sigils in food.

This could range from easy cheese sigils on crackers to stirring a sigil into a soup.

Week 1 Topic: How do you define Kitchencraft and what does it mean to you?
Due Date: Wednesday; March 26; 2014

————————————————————————
What is “The Breakfast Nook”?
————————————————————————

Derived from the idea behind The Kemetic Round Table, The Breakfast Nook will be a weekly event where users (not limited only to Oven Coven membership) will submit articles on a weekly topic decided by The Oven Coven discussion.

All topics will concern or focus on various aspects of Kitchen Practices (defined as above) and will be from the perspective of the individual participant and their respective practices and views on the subject. As such, all articles submitted by participants should be held as such and should not be taken as indicative of the views of The Oven Coven as a whole, or any other Pagan and/or Witch.

The purpose of The Breakfast Nook is sever fold:

  1. To provide resources and ideas to the community on a subject where there (truthfully) are very few resources.
  2. To offer additional / multiple viewpoints surrounding practice, religion, and magic- and how it all may be integrated and used- in terms of what is a secular craft at its base.
  3. To promote experience and practice sharing among our community.
  4. To promote some form of unity and increased interaction within the community.

Depending on the success of the Breakfast Nook, we may consider (at a later date) opening it up to other areas of Low and Folk Magic practices on which our tumblr-parent resource blog focuses.

————————————————————————
How To Participate
————————————————————————

TBN is inspired by and based off of The Kemetic Round Table. As such, it will be following the same (or a similar) format.

We will choose one topic a week, and anyone who wishes to participate may do so by writing a blog article (on Tumblr, Wordpress, or whatever blogging platform they wish) focusing on that week’s chosen topic.

A separate thread will be made each week announcing that week’s topic, both on The Oven Coven’s facebook group page (if you are a member), and on the Ladies of the Bone Lord blog (for non-members who wish to participate).

To submit your article, either submit the link to TOC’s appropriate thread for that week, or submit the link via a reblog of this week’s LBL post. Doing so will allow us to do a masterpost of everyone’s material the next week when the new topic is released.

Topic deadline has been extended until Friday afternoon if anyone else would like to participate.

Clarification on The Oven Coven

A few people have written me saying they thought TOC was ging to be a high participation required type of group, and this has made them decline to join.

This is not the case at all!

If you’d like to regularly start or participate in discussion, it’s greatly appreciated and it is encouraged- especially if you’d like to participate in The Breakfast Nook aspects of TOC’s structure. However, high participation as a member in the Oven Coven Facebook group is not a requirement.

Feel free to participate as you see fit, when you want to, or just feel free to lurk if that’s what you’d like to do! There are no participation requirements or rules outside of what has already been outlined in the post.

As a quick side note: If you’ve messaged us about joining and haven’t gotten a message back from us, please resend your message. Tumblr has been eating messages from people today.

Homemade Herbal Paper

Original OP Commentary: I found this cool craft idea for those of you who would want to make your own paper crafts or pages for your Book of Shadows, grimoire, ect. (I added bullet points and numbered the steps so that it’s a bit more organised)

LBT Mod Additions: Modified formatting and linked to Amazon for source. No other modification made

Homemade Herbal Paper

Supplies:

  • Scrap paper (you can use any kind of paper for this, from computer paper to newspaper; just be aware that paper with dark inks in it will turn your homemade paper gray).
  • Wooden frame the size of the paper you want to make (an old picture frame with the glass taken out will do)
  • Window screening (slightly larger than the frame)
  • Stapler or staple gun
  • Plastic tub (that the screen will fit in)
  • Blender
  • Felt or wool fabric (slightly larger than frame)
  • Sponge
  • Decorative plant matter such as herbs, flowers, or seeds.

Optional:

  • dryer lint (helps make paper stronger)
  • cornstarch
  • rolling pin

Directions:

1.Tear old paper into small pieces. Soak the pieces for a few hours or overnight (this will start to break down fibers so they arc easier to mash up in the blender).

2. Place in blender with water-use about a cup of paper to two or three cups of water. Blend until it turns into a light mush, like watery oatmeal. If you plan to write on your paper, you may want to add a tablespoon or so of cornstarch or some dryer lint. These will help your paper hold together better and absorb less ink.

3. When the paper mash is ready, add in whichever herbs, flowers or
seeds you like, and mix briefly. If you want the flowers to remain whole, add them later.

4. Make a mold by stapling  the screen over the wooden frame. Put about two inches of water into your plastic tub, and mix the paper mush
from the blender into it. Dip your screen mold into the tub at an angle, and pick up as much mush with it as you can. You can help spread it with your hands if you want
to.

5. When you have a layer on your mold, tilt it so the water runs off, then carefully blot as much water as you can with a doth or paper towels. Cover your mold with a piece of felt doth and gently turn it over onto a flat sur­face (the water will run off through the doth).

6. Carefully peel your paper off onto the felt. (It may just come off when you tap it, or you may need to dry it a bit more.) If you want to add whole flowers, herbs or seeds, you can do so now; press them into your paper with a rolling pin or any heavy object.You can help the paper to dry faster and flatter by placing newspapers with a cookie sheet or
another heavy, flat object on top.

Afterwards: When your paper is dry, peel it off the felt slowly and carefully. It can be used for numerous spell applications, but one of my favorites is to write a spell on a paper that has seeds imbedded in it (and perhaps herbs that are good fur that particular magickal working), and
then bury the paper after you have cast the spell. As the seeds bloom, they will carry your magickal intent to the
surface.

Notes: This is a great craft to do as a group or with your kids. It combines recycling with creativity, turning old scrap paper into beautiful herb-infused paper for yourself.

Magickal uses: Paper for spell-writing, making into a jour­nal or a Book of Shadows, gift wrap for Yule.
