Vegan Fire Cider

Last month I participated in World Fire Cider Action Day and created my first batch homemade fire cider.  Fire Cider is an old herbal vinegar to cure or prevent a cold. Rosemary Gladstar, an herbalist created the recipe and has been giving it out freely to help people heal themselves with food. You can find it here.

Save Our Parks


Often we don’t appreciate what we have until we are about to lose it, or even worse until we actually do. For me, that’s living in Utah. I’ve been here my entire life and been trying to leave for as long as I can remember. I love the natural beauty I’m surrounded by, the national and state parks and nearby access to everything outdoors. But up until January 21st, 2017, I would have traded it all in heart beat for a big city with an arts scene.

Within the first few days of the republican regime, I saw several pieces of legislation supported by all of Utah’s congressmen that would endanger our public lands and National and state parks. I’ve always known that as a little blueberry in a big red state that I rarely agreed with my representatives but as I started making daily calls to them, I realized that not only do we not agree, they aren’t interested in listening to their constituents or protecting Utah land or jobs. For the first time in my life, I found myself on the same side as hunters and fisherman and we begged our representatives to keep public lands safe and public. Only to find out they will sacrifice anything for big business and say its in the same of states rights.Continue Reading

The High Priestess – A Tarot Workbook

The High Priestess – A Tarot Workbook has been in the works for a long time. She has lived in my mind for years, only coming to life over the last twelve months. It shouldn’t have taken so long, but my old friend self-doubt has really slowed things down. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to have this zine complete, printed and bound – it’s pure magic!

How To Layout and Fold a Mini-Zine


I’ve been obsessed with zines for as long and I can remember. I’ve always wanted to create one but never known what to write about. What could I create that anyone could possible want to see? Then I realized this was fear talking and I have a blog that people read so it was time to get over it. It’s taken me a bit but I finally have one mini-zine complete and another two in the works.

If the thought of creating a zine is intimidating, you must do it! Start with a mini like I did and you’ll be on your way in no time.

Wait, so what is a zine? Zine is short for magazine as you may have guessed. They are self-published, usually on a copy machine publications, made for creative expression instead of profit. Sounds like a dream right?

Grab a piece of paper and try it. Right now. Create one about the first thing that comes to mind or try one of these: toast, your dog, instructions on how to make something, a mini cookbook. Make lots of copies and give them to everyone, including me. You can download a pdf template here: mini zine template.
