If you’ve been following me for a while you know that I do a lot in honoring both the military dead, and in supporting our living Veterans. Through the years I’ve sent materials off to military pagan/polytheistic circles and groups both stateside and wherever they served abroad.
For the last couple of years I’ve been doing a promotion in my etsy shop each and every November, where I donate all profits from that month’s sales to a reputable non-profit charitable organization that renders support to our Veterans, last year alone that translated to $1300 in donations sent to the Paralyzed Veterans of America. This year I have decided to continue that tradition and chose the non-profit: the Fisher House. They operate comfort houses so families can be with their veteran as they receive medical care and treatment. Those facilities can be found at certain VA centers and hospitals, and they also help to support flights and hotel accomodations too. “Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $451 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.” You can read up on the Fisher House from third party watchdogs Charity Navigator and Charity Watch, both of which rate the organization highly.
A friend of mine had her father fighting for his life in a VA hospital last year, and for 3 months drove 2-4 hours roundtrip a day (varying on traffic) so she could be with him. To be able to take a burden like that from a family already worried and under stress is a gift indeed. It also reminds our veterans and their families, that can sometimes feel very isolated, that they are not as alone as they might feel.
So if you have been wanting to pick up some prayer cards, bookmarks, or one of the few books I have in the store (including a few autographed copies) any purchases you make in November will be going to support a good cause. So it’s a great reason to increase your own hoard, and maybe pick up some Yuletide stocking stuffers. Visit the Shop: Wyrd Curiosities.
Check out some of the pieces currently for sale in my Etsy shop.

All the cards for the Nine Daughters of Ran and Aegir have been added to my etsy shop. These cards were sponsored by C. Greene.
If you are interested in buying these nine plus Ran and Aegir, please shoot me an email at krasskova at gmail.com and I will create a special listing for you. (the full set is $35, nine dollars less than what they’d cost buying them individually — if i’ve done my math right).
I’ll be uploading the Leda card momentarily so it can be purchased too.
I’ve also updated my Patreon account for those who are sponsors.
Finally, if you head on over to my goodreads page (just type in my name to bring up my author page there), i’m taking questions on my work. You can submit your questions and i’ll happily answer them (and right now I have a pretty quick turn around).
It is no surprise to anyone that i’m not a fan of the current social justice movements impacting our communities. It’s not that I think inequalities shouldn’t be addressed (I very much think they should be effectively addressed) but rather than i question the tactics of harassment, bullying, and attempted intimidating of anyone who doesn’t buy into certain opinions wholesale. I’m very much a fan of free speech, discourse, and discussion.
Imagine my amusement then when I began receiving emails about my etsy shop from a “concerned community member.” My refusal to remove certain items has led to veiled threats like
“I just want to make sure that I’m correctly understanding you so that I can accurately convey your answers to the others who are concerned about this!”
You know, with the undercurrent of ‘bow to our demands or we’re going to fuck with you.’ I’ve about half a dozen, maybe more emails from the same person about this, even though I have indicated that their discomfort is their own issue, and I”m not changing my etsy site and even though I have requested that communication cease.
Let the games begin. I have had better people than these come at me. It’s almost laughable that someone would try to intimidate me like this. I did point out that perhaps if they are so concerned about social injustice they should stop harassing me and get out there and do something worthwhile to change the inequalities that really are twisting and corrupting our world, to which I was assured
“that online work has its place in the landscape in which we live today, as part of a larger strategy of coalition-building — but I understand that there are disparities along many lines of differences between us in how that tends to play out.
I’d say that my working group is primarily focused on advocacy and activism, but we sometimes entertain fantasies that our larger spiritual community might be a place where we could all care for each other and protect each other from micro- and macroaggressions and harm. (That’s why I’m the one messaging you, as a fellow white person!)”
You know what i entertain fantasies of? A community that prioritizes veneration of the Gods and actual religion. Maybe a community that doesn’t feel the need to demand group think. Definitely a community that doesn’t pull such assed up passive aggressive attempts at emotional extortion. This is the worst kind of slacktivism that I’ve seen in awhile and I’m sure these people entertain notions that they are equivalent to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X because they sent some emails and tweeted footage of actual people out there on the streets trying to make a difference. Come for me. I”ve been Heathen probably longer than y’all have been alive. Have at it.
I rather like the term that our detractors so gleefully use for those of us who value piety, so I’ve commissioned buttons that I’ll be selling on my etsy site (I’ll post here when they’re available at etsy). For those of you who are interested, you can pre order here by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The buttons are 1.75 inches, one/$3 or two/$5. Wear them with pride, folks. Wear them with pride. Piety is not ever a bad thing.
I’ve made a bunch of updates at my etsy shop. The following cards have been added: Mars and Jupter by Lykeia, Cernunnos by B. Blake, and Tezcatlipoca by D. Loptson, Asteria and Logi by Halldora.
I’ve also added a listing for iron “coffin” nails, a useful item in certain conjure workings.
That is all for now.
I’ve updated my Etsy Site today.
I added some happy skeleton stickers (with an image drawn from a medieval manuscript — I really love these ^_^), gift certificates for divination sessions, and a couple of new prayer cards.
I”m also still running a special on my recent poetry chapbook. See here for more info.
I’m running a mini-sale at my Etsy shop:
Purchase a copy of my new poetry chapbook “Nine for Odin” and receive a free prayer card of Odin, and a surprise free gift.
Just let me know which Odin prayer card you want, when you order. We have several: two by Wayne McMillan, one by Lynn Perkins, one by Grace Palmer, and one by Sam Flegal.
The poetry book is available here.
All money raised is going toward two new prayer cards (one for the Lithuanian Goddess of the Sun and the other for the Lithuanian God of the moon).
i have updated my etsy shop and added both the Cybele and the Mokosz cards. I’ve also put a painting of Hermes up for sale. Check it out, folks. 🙂
