First Ever Giveaway!

Greetings One and All!  Announcing the First Ever Giveaway at Wiccan Writes!   Yes indeed, I am happy to be blogging, and having such friendly followers. It has been gratifying to receive great comments on my posts, and to have people appreciate the work and words.  Blogging has not been easy for me, first from the "techy" side, as I am not too computer savvy. I have had assistance from my dear husband, my daughter and son, and from observing other blogs. I am much more at ease now, and ready to learn some "advanced" techniques.

My goal for this blog was simply to write thoughts, ideas, and daily experiences to help me with my Wiccan path, and to demonstrate that living as a Wiccan can be fun, inspiring, wonderful, nerve-wracking, happy, serious, that I am not a "wacky airhead", demented, perverse or odd.  I am a regular person, who happens to be a witch, and who practices a religion that is not quite mainstream.

Anyhooo, I would like to thank my followers with this giveaway I have put together. I hope you will be interested in entering to win the following:

Llewellyn's 2011 Magical Almanac. There's a calendar section, featuring festivals and holidays, 2011 sabbats for by Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and Full Moons. It is filled with practical spells, rituals, daily correspondences, articles written by noteworthy pagans. This is will be handy for all levels of practitioners. Non-pagans will find it interesting and useful as well.

Dancing With Dragons, by D.J. Conway. This book is from my personal library, and I think you will find it fascinating whether you wish to add Dragons to your practice, or just as a fun, informational read. I enjoyed reading about dragon magic and though I do not work with dragons, I always want to learn as much as I can about other practices. 
These tiny candles, one silver, one gold are perfect for your altar, for spell work and rituals. I have included the sweet holders as well. I love using these small candles, and they are available in a wide array of colors. I chose silver and gold, of course, to represent the God and the Goddess.

I am putting together a charm for my winner. It starts with this shimmery little bag, and will include a fairy stone (shown) and a selection of herbs and stones for protection.  I will charge it with positive energy, and then when you receive it, please charge it with your own power and intention.

I am including a selection of incense sticks from my collection. I love using incense for spell work, rituals, sabbats and esbats, for cleansing and consecrating, and sometimes for no reason other than it smells great!

Robin Larkspur could not have a giveaway without including something chocolate.  Need I say more?

So here are the rules.  Basically no rules, LOL!!!  Just be a follower, or sign on to follow.  Leave a comment that you would like to enter my giveaway. This giveaway is open internationally. It will close on Saturday January 8th.  I will announce the winner Sunday January 9th.  The winner will have 3 days to respond. If  I do not receive a response, I will choose a new winner.  Please make sure that you leave either an email address, or have a blog that has contact info. 

The First Ever GiveAway
Hope you all like the giveaway!!! Looking forward to sending it to the winner!!!!   Blessings,  Robin.

I love dragons and is born in the year of the dragon too :-) I have learned that I am a wood dragon and I have never even heard of a fairy stone before. And chocolate is always welcome :-)

Have a great day now!

Congrats on your first ever giveaway. Everything in it is wonderful. Blogging didn't come easy for me, either, and I still run into problems. Talk about a nerd. These kids today are blessed to learn computers when they are still youngsters. I didn't learn until I was in my 50's.
