About Me

Profile updated 6th of April

I'm in the process of moving apartment!

And will not join any swaps until I'm settled.
The swap (Antler Headdress) I'm hosting has been postponed until I can swap again.
Thank you for taking your time to read this :)

Just lost a close family member and a beloved family pet, in the matter of 2 days during this week, on top of the move.... I'm a little stressed and don't have that much time for Swap-bot at the moment....


My name is Mia, I live with my husband near Copenhagen in Denmark. I don't have any kids, but I do have a cat :D His name is Misling, he is old and grumpy and I love him very much.

I am a kitchen/hedge/nature witch and work with nature, mother earth, plants, amulets, rituals, spells, meditation, myths, dreams, tarot, candlemagic, herbs, flowermagic, incense, Sabbats, esbats, folklore, food magic and much more

I'm also af medieval re-enactor, so I love anything medieval.... food, music, art, history, fashion, crafts, folklore and so on

Favorite Music

I listen to a lot of music, mostly black metal, gothic metal/rock and medieval music. But also doom-, death-, viking-, epic-, folk-, trash-metal and Scandinavian folk music.

Likes

Animals: Cats!!!!!!!!!!, owls, foxes, squirrels, dolphins, ravens, crows, mice, dragonflies. (actually I love all animals (but monkeys scare me), some people have the opinion that I seem to value the life of an animal higher then life of a human and sometimes that's true... as twisted as it might be)

So happy you like the pouch :D One of the incense blends was by me, the others were bought but also self-made by a lady... I partly make blends myself and partly buy them if they appeal to me. :)

Oh my goodness. I can't believe it made it with no customs form! Hmmmm. Makes me wonder if I could send something even thicker. Thanks for letting me know.... I wish I could have sent more, but until I am working, have to be careful.
