I am a State and Federally licensed taxidermist who graduated from the Pocono Institute of Taxidermy in 2010 with high marks. I have a deep respect for this craft and those who strive to preserve it.
It is my pleasure to work on any trophy mount, be it a shoulder, life-size, rug, or fish.

I've been wanting to explore this shop for quite some time, as I am fascinated by all things occult but never really took the time to inform myself on it. I often feel tuned in with certain vibrations and know first hand that listening to my inner voice yields unique and perfectly tailored-to-me results, and for my own amusement have made up my own new-age sort of modus operandi for navigating my way through this world. It's a hodge podge of cherry picked bits and bobs I picked up from books, film, etc but feel too personal to really get into here- I'll save it for the Shrine post coming up shortly.
Digression aside what I'm trying to say is that I finally stopped into my local occult shop to check it out with my own eyeballs and get my paws on some "official" merchandise, most importantly a custom blessed candle for my friend.
I spoke to the practitioner and told him about S; he began to take notes on a piece of paper while I spoke and his enthusiasm was contagious. He was so excited about this candle! I didn't want to kill the mood by telling him he'd spelled her name wrong. I figured the intent was there and that's what really matters. He disappeared in the back for about fifteen minutes and emerged with this glittering hand painted candle. He proceeded to explain all the symbols on it to me- I know Aries is in there somewhere, plus a heart and something about water- but due to sensory overload I could only retain so much information. I was given strict instruction to pass onto my friend that she is to burn the candle at times when she feels she needs to meditate or clear her mind before making an important decision. This card he made is to stay underneath the candle while it is lit. After the entire thing has burned away, the card is then put into the flame and ignited as well.
I wanted to make it really special and put my own blend of magic into her gift. Hence the candle holder. She was born in the year of the Ox, so I used some cow hooves to make this piece since the two are so closely related. It's my first "double foot" holder, so to speak, and while I like the elegance of the tall, single foot holders with their long tapered candles, there is something raw about these two feet forever pushing and pulling one another that quite strikes my fancy.
And of course no piece of mine is complete without a little diamond somewhere!
Happy Birthday to anyone anytime anywhere. Today is the best day ever because it's the one we are living.

A few months back I wrote about the lore behind raccoon baculum. Here's a brief excerpt:
This is another very similar charm I just sent off to my pal Georgia Pellegrini this afternoon. The bone itself dried out to be a little darker than the other; I did use an oil to give it a sort of ethereal sheen but it was applies after the deep color had already set in so maybe this is just a more potent bone. Wear with care, Ms. Georgia!
So here are a bunch of not so great photos I took of this one before send-off:
Happy Texas Toothpickin'!
