An Emerald City Birthday

My daughter was about to turn three. Her current obsessions include Wizard of Oz, the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and Daniel Tiger. So when we asked her what she wanted for her party, she exclaimed she wanted to be “Dorofee with a Emerald City cake.”

Intro

Here’s the plan, Stan.

Hello all! I’m Traci, aka Mythical Magpie. As it says on my About Me page, I’m a pagan mom who loves to create and is obsessed with gaming.

I see my tastes quite like a magpie as I gather the things around me that I love and make them my world. I sculpt, sew, crochet, paint, write and draw…much like a Jill of all Trades, I’m definitely not the master of any of the aforementioned listed skills, but I love them and they make me happy!

We’re in the process of migrating from my blogger page over here and I hope to begin a regularly scheduled series of updates.

I plan to have a regular schedule of the four topics:

  • Gaming
  • Crafts
  • Spirituality
  • Family

I will alternate blog and youtube video tutorials and hope you will find at least one topic that keeps you wanting more!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you back here soon!
