    My First Set

    I recently bought my first set! It's a book/rune set from the bookstore. A bit lame perhaps, but I see those things as a good "beginner's set".  Can't wait to learn how to use them!

    Taking Up the Runes

    I Just Made My Very Own Runes-- So

    now I've made three divination tools. I've made a pendulum, a scrying mirror, and runes. I haven't used the runes yet; I have just finished making them. I am so happy. I like making divination tools; it makes a fun arts and crafts activity, and when they work, it makes the...
