FoxxAndGem

One of my favorite things about my relationship is that we’re both artists and creators. Being able to watch Will create is so inspiring to me and it pushes me to focus more on my passions as well.

This year, we’ve decided to start a collaborative project together and I’m so excited to see where this takes us! We’ll be exploring Will’s music, my writing, and our shared art and videos as FoxxAndGem!

I love having such an amazing support system in my significant other that pushes me to experiment and create outside of my comfort zone. This is one of the main reasons I think I’ll ACTUALLY be able to finish my poetry collection this year and have the courage to share it with others.

I also love having the opportunity to watch Will as they develop more confidence in their music. They’re one of the most talented individuals I’ve ever met and I feel blessed to get to work beside them this year and for many more to come.

If you’d like to get to know a little bit more about us you can visit our website here – there you’ll find ways to connect with both of us and see some of the upcoming projects we have in the works!

Some of the things I’m most excited about are our shared blog, YouTube channel, and Etsy shop! These are still under construction at the moment but we have some really fun and interesting things planned and I look forward to sharing this experience with all of you!

Let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see show up in our shop, blog, or YouTube videos! We love any requests for items or games to play during our Let’s Play videos!

love and light,

Witch Crafts

I have always loved crafting and creating and bringing things to life. I love living with paint stained fingertips and ink permanently smudged on the side of my hand.
My Etsy shop, Cosmic Witchery, is my way of bringing my creative passions to life. There you will find the wide variety of ways my chaotic mind manifests itself in the creative realm.

During one of the rougher patches of my life, I constantly found myself alone in my room with an abundance of time and very low energy (thanks greatly in part to my depression and PTSD). My illnesses made it impossible for me to go out, but my overactive mind made it impossible for me to rest. Writing and crafting became my two biggest outlets.

I started to craft and  work on small projects everyday, as much as my energy levels would allow. I filled my room with paintings, tie-dye banners, dream catchers, and so many other beaded decorations. These small items kept me happy, peaceful, and sane for a year and half – enough time to gain some normality and routine back into my existence. After that, I was able to expand my projects and my energy began to return to a somewhat normal state. I was able to go back to school, something I had thought was impossible.

But I never stopped crafting.

These crafts have given me a much needed outlet for my ever-racing mind. They help me to stay centered, to stay sane. They keep me grounded and focused on one project at a time. They make for a relaxing study break and keep me going on my roughest days.

And so, after two years of crafting for myself, I decided to open an Etsy shop and share my craft with others. I hope they bring you and much pleasure, peace, and positive vibes as they have always brought me.

Love and light,

m.m.t.
