Long time followers know that every November I make it a priority to donate to a non-profit organization that supports our veterans. I will rotate through a number of worthy organizations, but this year I’ll be donating 100% of my etsy store proceeds in November to the American Legion. Plus to sweeten the deal, you can enjoy 15% off any item you purchase from the shop, so that means any of hundreds of prayer cards, plus bookmarks, and more that are available at my etsy store Wyrd Curiosities.
In addition to the American Legion donation that will come from November’s etsy proceeds, I will also personally match that same amount from my pocket but donate to another worthy non-profit, the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
Use promocode VETS2021 at my etsy store Wyrd Curiosities upon checkout. This deal expires November 30, 2021 at 11:59pm Eastern.
I am running a 20% OFF sale on all art, books, bookmarks, and prayer cards in my etsy shop Wyrd Curiosities through January 31, 2021. Use this code to redeem: TGI2021 (or click the link). There’s more than 300 prayer cards available for our Gods and Goddesses across a range of polytheistic traditions: Norse, Germanic, Celtic, Gaulic, Welsh, Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and so much more.
Because the military dead figure so heavily in my venerative practices this month, and Veteran’s Day is about a week away, I have a 20% off code for you on Prayer Cards this November in my shop. Use code YAYVETS2020 at checkout. This promotion coincides with the fact that I’ll be donating a portion of all my etsy sales to Paralyzed Veterans of America (www.pva.org). So not only can you grab a good deal right before the yuletide season, (and the prayer cards can make great stocking stuffers or bits of religious cheer to send to someone in their yule card) but you will know that part of the purchase will help some of our disabled veterans too.
The Paralyzed Veterans of America organization is dedicated to serving veterans—through medical research, advocacy and civil rights for all people with disabilities. Restoring dignity by providing solutions to those with spinal cord injuries or dysfunction (and expanded to those with MS or ALS too). They use funds to help veterans gain access to adaptive vehicles, adaptive housing, adaptive sports, and a range of other benefits.
You can find Prayer Cards for a range of Gods and Goddesses of different polytheistic traditions: Egyptian, Celtic, Balto-Finnic, Slavic, Norse & Germanic, Greek & Roman, Gaulish, Welsh, British, Mesopotamian, Canaanite, Etruscan, Lithuanian, and more.
In honor of the Fourth of July, I’m offering 20% Off everything in my etsy shop. Just click here to get the coupon, which will then be applied at checkout. This sale will run through July 8, 2020.
I have books (including a small selection of texts exclusive to the shop, or the odd autographed book), original paintings, and hundreds of prayer cards for deities from a range of traditions: Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Norse, Germanic, Celtic, Etruscan, Mesopotamia, Baltic, Slavic, and more! There’s dozens of healing deities among the available prayer cards too.
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.

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.
