This font is called 'Unkempt', in these times, that is exactly how I feel, and what I see this world.  There is no logic, People and family members are at arms length these days.  There is no tolerance, and it feels like a better society lies far from our reach.  The pain, loss and suffering of so many good, loving souls has reached a terrible high.  I don't remember our society like this 5 years ago.  What happened?  This is the thousand dollar question.  I can only hope that all will smooth out, and this beautiful nation will find solace in small things, and Love in places that we forgot to look before.  Blessed Be 

October 10, 2020
Well so much for a better half of this cruel year.... 2020....
It's been a rough year this 2020 thing. I really thought in January, we would all achieve the Sight of 2020 enlightenment, with so much Love and Hope and all things good. The numbers warranted it. It has turned out to be the exact opposite for Jerry and I. I could write a page of all the things that have crumbled down around us. Lives lost of friends and critters, injuries, knees going caputz, isolation, businesses closing. I am sure I am not alone in seeing this loss either.
On FaceBook I truly admire the dear people, who post photos of gardens, flowers, cute pets, bountiful harvests, they have found a way to over ride the horrors of our existence. They refuse to engage in the travesties, pain, and devolution of our society and world.
My focus remains on my family and the joy, love and stability they bring to me. My thankfulness for food on our table, a pillow to lay my head on, and roof to keep us dry. There are so many good dear people that don't have that right now. I can see the blood orange skies of California and the horrid air they have to breathe into their lungs. relentless Hurricanes thrash the Southern Gulf area.  A deadly virus ravages the world, with no appearance of disappearing. Hospitals are filled to capacity, and mass grave sites are filling up. My Goddess can it get any worse?!
Yes it can, and is. There is such hatred now. So many people have come to a place of derision and blame that all seem to me, to be based on delusion and untruths, spoken loud to a crowd of thirsty weak minded people. Death of innocent good people has become a daily thing. Peaceful protest gatherings have been twisted into the exact opposite. Insanity has opened the abyss of darkness. I am beginning to understand why the so called 'Right' point at the Peace people and call them antifa. Because they, the 'Right', are the fascists now, whether they realize it or not. They have twisted the meaning of being anti fascist into something hateful, bad, and threatening to them, the silent fascists! Good Goddess! The tendrils of Cthulhu is about to pull us all into his devouring mouth.
This week our Michigan Governor was threatened by some hateful eyed, unkept bearded men, well organized, well weaponized, and full of hate and a desire to rend violence and pain on those who don't think like they do.
Ahhhh the sun will rise again tomorrow, and we will open our eyes to a refreshed Earth. Another day will begin and I fear what the news will deliver. The leader of America is not a leader, he is derisive, insane, and criminal.  I cannot ignore our current events, it is not what we were taught back in the school of the 1950's or 60's. Is ignorance bliss? I cannot accept that premise, not today. Not while our beds are burning.

LATE JUNE 2020 ~ 

After rereading my post below, I find it impossible to be so positive in this post.  Sorry...
The past 6 months have been packed with one surprise after another.  

A potent new virus has spread across the world.  It's cruel presence has brought out the best of humanity and the worst.  Shame on all those who are choosing not to self distance, stay home, or wear protective masks.  You endanger everyone with your selfish arrogance.
I broke my arm on March 19, falling on ice between our home and our studio.

We lost our precious GrisGris on April 20th.  We remain heartbroken and feel so empty with out him.

My knees have been giving me trouble for a year and a half, and my reluctance to see an Orthopaedic doctor was changed when I broke my arm.  They are treating my osteo arthric issues, and I hope to see some relief from all this.  Thus my walking to the creek and out to the Labyrinth is not something I do so freely anymore.  Oh well, at least I am still alive, and have a loving husband, who has been my hero all through these troubled times.  So far the first half of 2020 has been quite a challenge.  I can hope that the second half will be much better.  Blessings ... Linda



WELCOME 2020 ... the year of VISION!


Here it comes folks.  A whole new year to become the Dream we all vision in our hearts and minds. May our world flourish and grow with enough for ALL.  May the greedy, mean spirited be smiled out of existence and into their own bliss.  Start your 'SMILING' now!  Our smiles are tools we have forgotten about.  They can magickally confuse any bad person.  They can infect the most unhappy, and they will never know how or why, until it's too late, and a smile appears upon their face, transforming their hearts and lives forever!  Smile on my dear ones!       SMILE ON!!!!!

This photo is my soldering  bench, waiting for my presence in the studio.  I am off now to go get it all dirty with lots of activity.  I need to force myself out there, now that little Malikin, my beloved shop companion, is gone.  I can't put into words what her tiny presence in my life meant.  Now that she's in the Summer Land, I feel the gaping hole of loss.  Everyday I shed tears for her.

We haven't seen many folks in the shop this year, so that adds to that gaping hole.  Perhaps, with the Spirit of Giving, will come more folks to venture this way.  I am ready to happily greet all.   ♡˜”*°•☽O☾•°*˜”♡

                                                                                                                                                                            December 1st, 2019

That is my darling little Malikin Silvertoes in that photo.  She left us on July 24th and I can't go any further than this.  She was my constant companion and friend.  My heart is heavy.   

Summer has been beautiful and Jerry and I have loved every sun filled day.  We are sorry to see it wain.   My knees are paining me a bit, so that has slowed me down.  We have a lot of work to do in prep for winter's cold blow, but getting it all done is more and more of a challenge for us.  The state of our country, the climate crisis, finances are burdensome weights on our shoulders.  I hope things will brighten for everyone.


I plan to downsize our web page next year. I hope to  maintain a small presence, we don't want to disappear from the Web. But Face Book is where you will find current updates.  Our little shop is, of course. still OPEN!  And you will find all kinds of really cool delights within it's walls.  First, you have to come visit!  

 And of course don't forget our ETSY SHOPPE                                                      Mabon ~ 9-21-19

It's been a while since I tweaked our site.  Sorry for my neglect.  You'll have to stop by and pinch me!  NOT!

So the 4th has finally gone and our furbies are feeling less stressed now.  The Fire works are just awful for their little ears.  We comfort them and play music so it's not so bad.

Our little Malikin is 20 years old now and she is really showing her age.  I know we can't have her forever, but I am not ready to say good bye yet.  Gris Gris is still the mouser in the family, and he actually will catch a mouse and bring it to little Malikin as a gift.  He is such a good kitty.  That's GrisGris in the photo.  He is so beautiful! 
I already announced the arrival of some incredible faeries that will be here in a week to 10 days, out on the home page.  I am excited to get them back in the store.  They sold out quickly when we offered them a few years ago.  I figured it was time to share them again with all our magickal customers.  Not to mention what a wonderful gift for a young person who believes. 
I am going to run (not really) now, It's dinner time and I have two hungry guys who need to be nourished.  Blessed Be                                  7-12-19

Please note that I would love to hear from everyone who comes to visit our little space on the World Wide Web.... but because of limitations... like not having 10 arms or a 72 hour day... I am asking you good souls to venture to our........... Sacred Sparks Face Book Page 

and like my page.  I post every day in the morning, and try to check in the afternoon.  I love to connect with all who take the time to write a comment.  You can also directly connect with me there via a message.  I do not currently have a smart phone so I use my computer to do all this... Internet connections, web site and email..  

I look forward to connecting with you there and I do so hope you will let me know that you are connecting from this Web Site.  It's always nice to know that someone in this world is actually seeing and looking at this site.  It takes time managing it.  But it is fun, I truly enjoy adding little images and words of what's going on in Northern Michigan.  PEACE   ~*☆☾•~დ╮♡╭დ~•☽☆*~                                                                   11-30-2018

DECEMBER 2018....  Even snow can be beautiful if you can see it in the perspective of an artist, or a skier.  As you may know there are some really grand ski resorts near us.  When you come up North for the holidays and plan to get some skiing in, don't forget to Google Maps Sacred Sparks to find the way to our shop.  You will be so glad you did.  :)


Yes, we still mourn the loss of our sign on the corner of Mt. Bliss Road and Rogers Road and M-32.  So many depended on seeing that landmark to our shop here on Mt. Bliss.  That empty spot has led folks to think we are closed permanently.  Not the case.  We do exist and would sure love to have you come visit.  Call ahead please.. 231-536-2704. We do not want to miss you.

Just a note to all the folks who have followed us here on our Web Site.  Being the small, 2 person business that we are, and Jerry does none of the Internet anything, I Linda, have decided to respectfully connect with me on our Face Book Page.  I go there almost every morning, and read every ones comments.  I also respond!  It is just too demanding of my precious time to try to maintain communications from here and also there.  So I do hope you understand and will reach me on Face Book.  Thanks so much... Now I am off to the studio where I need to be!  I have so much to do.

OCTOBER 2018  
Our tiny shop is packed full with wonderful things, not to find anywhere else in this world... because we made them.  We have backed off from holding events here.  We are getting old and folks already have so many festivals and events on their roster, we know it's difficult to fit in too many.  So, instead, we keep our little shop stocked with cool stuff that will dazzle your eyes when you walk in.  But one thing you need to remember..... if you want to be dazzled you absolutely HAVE to come visit us!  Bring your friends and family, make us a rendezvous destination.  The beautiful and relaxing Jordan River is near by, with great canoe trips and trout fishing.   See you soon .... 



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


April 1, 2018 ~ We are seeing some renewed interest in our shop.  Customers are returning to find things they can't find anywhere else.  To us, that is very encouraging.  As a result of more activity and interest, Jerry and I have decided to continue our humble shop and web site.  We have plans to add some unique inventory beyond what we create, and more of what we do make! 

  

Next time you visit our shop, you will see these additions.  It's nice to be surprised with new and wonderful offerings.  You won't find glitzy gizzmo imported stuff.  We only offer items that will spark your heart with Love, Peace, and Creativity, and not to forget Joy and Beauty, also very important!   All is Fair priced with high craftsmanship, qualities you don't find much in the world of mass produced, trendy, over packaged products, but you will here at Sacred Sparks.  We recycle boxes, and packaging as much as possible.  We don't cut back on our Love for our customers. 

Stay tuned for announcements of new items coming to the shelves at Sacred Sparks!  ♡˜”*°•☽O☾•°*˜”♡
