For the ritual my buisness partner Jamie and I wrote for PantheaCon 2009 I set myself the challenge of crafting the main god figures for the center altar. It took a while, but i managed to get them done just in time for the convention and the ritual!

Now that ritual is over they are for sale in our Artfire shop and I can show them off here! 🙂 The awesome photos are by Jamie (of course) who now has a whole bunch of her photography up in the shop by the way!

I’ve also been doing a little bit of writing for Artfire.com’s Art Daily. So far they have posted two of my pieces. One is a short article about how to create your own beaded doll head. The other is about how to be friends with people with allergies and chemical sensitivities (like me!) I hope you’ll swing by Artfire and take a look!

Blessings,

An Article on Artfire

February 16, 2009

Hi Everyone!

I want to share a very exciting thing that has just happend for my business partner Jamie and I.

As some of you know we have a shop on Artfire.com which we love.  Artfire does these Artisan spotlights every couple of days and Jamie and I are the currently spotlighted artists! We will be up until the 18th I think. Come see!!!

ArtFire Artisan Spotlight: Catherine Pennington and Jamie Morgan, Mirthreverence

I opted to keep my answers MCS free for this article since its really a publicity peice about our buisness. I figure I can ease Artfire into the “wonders” of MCS over time.

Happy Lupercalia and Valentine’s Day to all!

This Yule to simplify my life I went hunting on Etsy for handmade pretties to send to my family in NY and lucked out! I found this amazing artist Courtney Cornett who does Animal illustrations ala A is for Albatross etc but she also does a line of “nerdy” animals – same images only with their Latin names, very fun. Best part, she does custom work! So when i did not see what I wanted for my Dad – a Polar bear, my step-mom – a horse and my little sister – a unicorn, I emailed her and she happily worked up the sketches! They were so great I ended up ordering ones for both my kids, my husband, another friend, my coven and then because my hubby got mad at me for not getting one for myself, going back and ordeing one for me as well! (I think I made her Christmas!)

Her work is awesom and she is great to work with – so If you want an image of a friendly critter, or your local animal spirit – I highly recommend her!! Her Etsy shop is courtneymcornett.etsy.com and here is a sample of her work, the Manta Ray she did for my husband.

… she currently has a river otter up, the polar bear she did for my dad, the unicorn, Rhinoscorus, horse and Dragon she did for me and hopefully she will put up the Golden Eagle soon as well. And maybe just maybe she will put up the black squirrel she did for Covenus Ratatoskus! :

The other Pimp Job I will do while I am here (of course!)  is for the shop on Artfire that my business partner, Jamie and i have.  Jamie (the Jeweler) has been making pretties for Valentine’s day and Imbolg / Brigid and I have my soft form Fire Doll and Sir EJ up for both V.D. and Lupercalia cause well – you can never have too much passion on those days!! come! visit us at  http://mirthreverence.artfire.com

Stop by and say hi!
