herbs and stones

3 crows feathers that began my journey will be attached to her. (the rattle) 
The leather is not as stiff as I wish it to be although I wet it and put sand in it and let it dry completely.
Any ideas???

A mixture of herbs, stones, and flowers will be the rattle part. I would like to add a bit of corn and tobacco.


One curious little black cat!


  1. You sent me off watching lots of videos on this subject the last time!!! The rocks you've chosen are beautiful :)

  2. Hi Nancy,

    Ha ha...I am smiling. It is pretty interesting?
    I think I needed a thinner leather??
    None the less it will have to do.
    The stones and herbs were a gift to me.
    I have always been fascinated with stones and the healing/energetic
    properties of them.
    thank you <3

  3. Wish I could help you but I've never done this before so I'm learning from you. I love the rattle mixture you've made up and how you've created this, step-by-step, with so much focus and intention. You'll be raising up some good energy with this. xoxo

  4. looking in that dish reminds me of a kaleidoscope- such lovely combination of items and thought going into this.

  5. Love how this is coming together...

  6. Hi Peggy,

    I think normally the leather used for rattles is thinner, but I am not sure.
    I will have to do a little research. I was trying to use what was on hand and although it works,
    there is still "tweeking" to do. Lol!
    I am looking forward to another full moon so the rattle can bathe in the light of it and absorb that energy.
    I am off to find some corn....

  7. Hi Handstories,

    As a child I was fascinated by kaleidoscopes and I think you are right...
    It does remind me of a kaleidoscope too.
    Thank you<3

  8. Hi Deb,

    I wish I could move faster on things, but it seems these days are consumed with so many other things.
    I have to remind myself to take a "little step" in the direction I want to go every day and then all those little steps add up.
    Thank you <3
