it doesn’t make sense 4 m3 to have one particular logo 4 all of my shifty wild ass creations. after all, i am a shape-shifter. what appeals to me one month will totally change the next. so i bought some simple stamps at the craft store 2 make hangtags 4 my artisan perfume oil. when i get bored with this logo, i’ll buy a new stamp 4 whatever mood or image i am drawn 2 at the thyme. issue resolved.
you are feeling a little off, unsettled and off kilter lately.
there is a churning in your belly that’s been trying to get your attention. friendly unseen forces have whispered, clear out the negative vibes, sweet thang. it’s thyme 2 create confident shifts in your home, in your space, and in your beautiful life. it’s thyme 4 peaceful + luminescent change.
you may ask, where do i start?
it starts with the intention.
you are already on the path to breaking up musky clouds and unwanted vibes because you are aware of your need. magically rad!
so take in that peaceful positive breath you’ve needed, let it fill your lungs, and then slowly let it out. yes, now. know that you are well on your way!
the practice of clearing + creating new vibes in my life + metropad are a familiar way of life 4 m3. just like breathing.
i will never claim to be an authority on anything. my way of doing something is not the only way. you have your own creative mojo swirling about that needs to be expressed in your own unique charming way! you are welcome 2 take what you like from my scallywaif cupboard of trix and leave the rest. add your own beautiful mojo and have FUN!
1. make your statement
the first thing i do when i know it’s time 2 change the vibes around my home and life is 2 make a verbal + written statement. i always make my statement as if it has already happened. example: “thank you, divine spirit that new clear happy vibes surround me now!” i make my statement with divine authority while standing in my right to take charge and shift the energy in my home.
2. light it up! candles, sage, incense
sage is a beautiful herb that worx like a charm 4 clearing out bad energy. i light the sage and swirl it around myself first. i start near my crown and work down to my feet. i try to be careful not to let the burning sage get too close to my hair and body 4 obvious reasons. be wise, but sage! while i’m saging myself, i repeat my affirmation. thank you, divine spirit that new clear happy vibes surround me now!
next i start at the back of my metropad and swirl the smudge stick in figure 8 (infinity) motions. i ask my angels and guides to be with me, to be in my home, to clear and protect and raise the vibes. i go into every room and every closet with my sage. i tell the old energy to neutralize and to leave my home in a peaceful and loving way harming none. i see this process as a spiritual sweep. i continue smudging until i feel at peace that the smudging work is done. go with your gut.
incense before i light my incense, i imagine a big bright bubble of protection around my metropad. i see it in my mind’s eye. my home is safe + protected. i know that only good vibes are in my space. i light my incense 2 seal the deal. now i enjoy the show! have you ever watched incense work it’s magic in a room?
3. eliminate clutter
now it’s thyme 2 physically clean house. i start throwing out old things that no longer serve me. i physically sweep and clean my metropad. if you want 2 make your own natural cleaning spray, you can buy essential oils that resonate with you. mix them with water in a spray bottle. when i’m cleaning the house to change the vibes, i like using sage + lemongrass + cedar + eucalyptus oil to clean. there are so many oils to choose and what worx 4 me may not be what you are needing at the thyme. so go with your own magical flow!
4. enchant your home
i love bringing in magical gifts from nature 2 raise the vibes and create beauty in my spaces. gemstones + shells + leaves + feathers all do it 4 me! i have a few sacred spaces around the metropad where i display my charms. having beautiful items that are symbolic totally raise my vibes. go on a nature walk asap and find trinkets you can use to bring charm into your space. again, go with your own magical mojo flow and have fun!
Do YOUR thang YOUR way. harm 2 none. live and let live!
1. Leather journal that smells divine.
2. Magically used to write out my intentions, goals, wishes, desires, and other crafty banter.
3. I saw this Xact journal a few months back and wanted it. To the max.
4. X-statik to now have it.
5. Love the unlined thick papers snuggled deep inside the bind.
6. This journal is a great match with incense wafting in the air.
7. After this blog entry, I am going to write, play and get intimate with my new journal friend.
The Burbs. Radass. 80’s. Flick. FYI This aint a movie review. It’s me doing my 7 sin-ton-says. (7 sentences – for people who can’t read code)
Why do I like this movie?
1. Welp, cause it awesome. It’s dark and it’s funny. I can smugly relate to that.
2. The sardine scene kills my funny femur bone every time.
3. Every neighbor in the burbs has a set of issues. I’m all about issues right now. I think it’s healthy and wise to admit to having issues. I am about sick of fake flakes as of late. But that’s for another blog entry….
4. Tom Hanks / Ray Peterson is obsessed. I can relate to obsessive behavior.
5. Ray Peterson’s obsessive behavior finally pays off. I can relate to that, too.
6. I think Corey
Fieldman Feldman was actually in a place of liking himself in this film. Which is a really cool thing for him.
7. A secret: I may love unicorns, orchids and most things that sparkle, but I have always felt like a Klopek at heart.

Orange is my power color this season. I have never really given the color orange a second thought, but somewhere out of the brilliant sunlight, KA-POWIE, all I see is the color orange. I am drawn to it. I feel like I need it. I wear it when I can. When I go thrift storin’ I head straight to the orange blouse section. I want to paint my toe nails orange while drinking an iced Orange Crush.
Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck’s color is orange.
While red is associated with fiery heat, orange is associated with the benign warmth of the sun. A dynamic color to be sure, orange offers a more thoughtful control than explosive red. Curiosity is a driving characteristic of orange, and with it comes exploration of new things.
Put some orange in your life when you want:
- to spice things up when you feel time is dragging
- to become more involved in something
- to increase creativity
- relief from things becoming too serious
Wearing orange during times of stress, or shock can help to balance your emotions. It can bring about the willingness to embrace new ideas with enjoyment and a sense of exploration and creative play.
