Jim: Welcome to episode 97.
Jim: We're getting ever close to that episode number 100. I'm super excited. I know. And today we're gonna talk about how to make a lucky talisman.
Katie: Yes. From a we man or woman. Yay.
Light From Lantern presents: Knit A Spell.
I'm magical maker: Katie Rempe.
And I'm the maker of magic: James Divine.
Join us as we stitch together the symbiotic relationship between crafting and 'The Craft'.
Jim: Why are we talking about this, Katie? What are you about to do?
Katie: So this whole month of our month of magic, money, magic, and luck, magic was all inspired by my upcoming trip to Las Vegas, baby.
Katie: I was like, I've been doing this magic thing for a while. Maybe I should try it and see if it works. And so we contacted Madam Pamita at Parlour of Wonders, who sent us a goodie bag full of all sorts of lucky charms and things for me to use while I'm there, which we're gonna cover in the second half.
Jim: She sent you cereal.
Katie: Frosting. Exactly. After me Freeze dried marshmallows. I'm hoping to get that pot of gold. You know what I'm saying?
Katie: But I also thought, it would be fun just to talk about what our lucky charms to us, whether it's the breakfast cereal or an amulet, or Yeah. Whatever you might be.
Jim: So yeah it's interesting to see all of the superstitions luck. And the lucky talismans and the lucky things that people carry with them to sporting events.
Jim: When you want your team to win, when you're even watching. We just had, the sports ball. The superb Oh, superb owl. Yeah, the superb owl. And so everyone who wanted their team to win probably did something superstitious.
Jim: Or we had in February a superstition around whether winter would continue, and so we got some prognostication from a groundhog. And so there's all kinds of superstitions, but also you wear your lucky jersey or you do certain things. That's it. Yes.
Jim: Certainly when people go to Vegas, I think it would be really fun for you to interview a few people or ask a few people do you have something that you do for luck? That you wear or that you carry with you when you're gambling in Vegas.
Katie: I definitely have the ability to ask people, and I am a little afraid of them to tell me.
Katie: They'll tell you. I'm sure they'll tell me. I think we're on the same page with that. I wanna know what's your lucky superstition? Do you have a lucky machine? Do you have a lucky number? Yeah. And what do I need to know?
Jim: And they don't have to tell you, but they can tell you that they have one. It would be fascinating. Sure.
Jim: What's one of the things that we think about as a lucky talisman? I had one when I was a kid. Did you have a lucky rabbit's foot?
Katie: Oh gosh, yes I did. You did. Oh, I like really didn't understand at the time that it was like a real rabbit's foot, even though I remember being like, is this a bone that can't be right. They wouldn't sell this and then dip it and die and then sell it to a child for $2 in the roller rink.
Katie: That's weird. But yeah, I think it was.
Jim: I used to put that thing, it was so soft, but. I think this is great.
Katie: Oh, so lucky human's. Foot . It's the rabbit's revenge.
Jim: So if you're watching this on YouTube or on Instagram, you can see the reversal. I love this. Oh, fortune here. It's pretty good, right?
Katie: Yes. Are you selling these stickers?
Jim: This is an artist, and we'll put a link in our bio. This is an artist in New Orleans, Eleanor. That's one of her paintings and she's selling these stickers and I just thought it was the funniest and coolest.
Jim: I love that painting that she did. Yeah. And so I bought this sticker and I thought, oh my God, this is gonna be perfect for our episode.
Katie: Huh? Finally we're morbid. It's our kind of humor. We were just talking about that. Yeah,
Jim: it's the Bunny's lucky Talisman.
Katie: What other objects have we not thought of that are lucky? I always go towards a horseshoe. That's always a lucky kinda thing, not only, I think cuz of the iron aspect of it too. Is that right?
Jim: I don't know. I guess it's always been a lucky symbol.
Jim: The horseshoe and I've always seen a horseshoe nailed above a door, often pointing down. But then recently I'm guess in my more adult life, People have said, or admonished, no, that is supposed to be right side up to keep the luck in, like a chalice or a cup or something.
Jim: Oh. When we think of luck, we think of, a four-leaf clover, which is hard to find. And when you find one in a field, you certainly do feel lucky. Oh my gosh, I found a four-Leaf CL. Yeah. Rare. Definitely. You ever found one?
Katie: I can't recall ever finding one. No. Maybe one day though, now that I've said that.
Jim: My husband's found one a few times.
Katie: Wow. And is he generally a lucky person would you say?
Jim: He actually read a book called Increase Your Luck. We have to find that and link it also.
Jim: And one of the to increase your luck sounds a little mundane, but it's also very magical. It actually has really good tips on actually increasing your luck. Some of them are, meet a new person every day. Go to a new place every day, expand yourself. Okay? These are ways to actually increase your luck because luck is a function of connections and of increasing the ability of things to come to you in your life.
Jim: If you're just gonna stay in your mom's basement playing video games, you might be lucky at the video game, but you may not have actual luck come to you from real life.
Katie: Oh, this is so interesting because as you're saying that I'm. Oh yeah, actually, that's how I felt with this whole theme that we've been putting together because it's required so much planning ahead and I had to reach out to the place we're gonna stay in Las Vegas to make sure it's even okay that we do all these episodes and content there.
Katie: And, while they were there they're like, oh, you could also do this and you could also do that. And so it's just that it's opening up the connections of possibilities to, to know it could be better than what you're thinking, right? Yes. Get more people involved.
Jim: Yes. Bring your magic into the real life world and you start to actually have things happen.
Katie: So then let me ask you your opinion on this. Some people think the opposite of that, wherein for example that will learn later if you make a lucky mojo bag and someone sees, it's no longer lucky or if they touch it, it could no longer be lucky.
Katie: And maybe that's just again, like a personal belief system, but where does it go from I have to keep it a secret so that more people's energy don't get involved too. I do want it to be involved.
Jim: I think that's different. Reaching out and making connections and all of that is the result, potentially of your magic.
Jim: So I think about the magic is making your talisman, burning your candle, creating an intention.
Jim: So let's say and this is not true of you and I, but let's pretend. that one of us is very introverted and shy. Can you imagine ?
Katie: No, you can't,
Jim: but let's just pretend. I have actually had this, like I felt reticent to approach a stranger and just be pushy, right?
Jim: I could never. Billy on the street. Don't wanna offend people. I want to leave people feeling happier and better as a result of it interacting with them.
Jim: So to do something like that would need like an extraordinary transformation in my mindset. Or maybe a stroke. I don't know. But so to do that I would need some kind of, Magic or taman support for me to say I really need to just do that. And so that's where I would do some magic and I would keep that magic hidden, but then that magic would be propelling me to do something in the real world.
Jim: So I would wanna keep my mojo bag or my talisman hidden or look like a mundane object so no one would really, question it. Yeah. But then it would have an impact for me to do something different in the real world.
Katie: I see. Okay. Because there's still the work aspect.
Katie: Yes. Yeah.
Jim: Can you relate with this? Yes, absolutely. Does this make sense to.
Jim: Because if someone is like, wow, what's that cool thing you have hanging around your neck? Then you're like, oh, this is my magic mojo bag. It does this and this, and then suddenly people are like casting the evil eye at it or doing things or another oh, he's got a leg up on me, or whatever.
Jim: Or they don't believe it works, or they think you're an idiot. I don't need that kind of negativity in my life, right? It casts doubt on what you're doing and you have to explain it. And so instead you keep that shit hidden. It's your personal special secret. This is my power. And that's important.
Jim: Yeah. Interesting. So that's why I put those talismans on a long string and keep it under my shirt.
Katie: That makes sense then.
Katie: now that we know how to use the talisman, what about actually making one? We were saying before you can always go to your trusted magical practitioners who specialize in these sorts of things.
Katie: But what if you're just a person in your house and you're like, isn't there something around here I could put together and give a shot?
Jim: Could you knit like a four-leaf clover or crochet a little four-leaf clover to wear around your neck and then anoint it with oils or something?
Jim: Absolutely. Could you imagine? That would be or even knit or crochet. A little spiral of like blue and white or something like that. And then have that sort of around your neck.
Katie: My mind obviously goes to you knit a mojo bat, like you knit the actual bag part, right?
Katie: And then you put whatever the contents are, you make it in, like maybe it has so many stitches on there that you do so many rounds.
Katie: And then, afterwards I would put maybe for a blocking spray. That's when I would put like the good luck oil in there and then finish it off that way. Or maybe that's where I would feed it every day so that it had a little extra magical boost. That sort of a thing.
Jim: Yeah. And you'd make it in your favorite lucky color. Afterwards you could take some gold thread and thread gold up through the stitches. You could Sure.
Jim: Embroider or cross-stitch stuff on it.
Katie: Definitely. I think like just having it in your purse also, even if it's not like physically on you, cuz maybe it's a little bit cumbersome. Maybe I also wanna put like a tarot card in there that I feel like is lucky . So that's something I wanna have in a bigger bag maybe.
Jim: You could also knit a much smaller.
Katie: Totally. Yeah. You'd also don't have to knit a bag at all. You could just get a pre-made little bag and then stuff it with all your little lucky charms. What are some of your lucky charms?
Jim: One of the most effective charms for luck that I've ever created is as follows: find a knob of High John the Conqueror Root.
Jim: So this is a Root of Bindweed or wild Morning Glory. You can find this almost anywhere. It's a obnoxious weed, which means it's a weed that takes over in the Pacific Northwest.
Jim: But you can also buy this root already dried on the internet or from anywhere. The roots are shaped a lot like cat poop.
Katie: Yes, I can verify that.
Jim: Sometimes they are round little knobs, and sometimes they're long tapered at each end.
Jim: Seriously, they look exactly like that.
Katie: Yeah, imagine a turd.
Jim: Yeah. . Yeah, exactly. But they can be in all different shapes and sizes. I like the shorter fatter ones. But any shape that works for you.
Jim: And what I like to do is take that and think about it like a pendant on a necklace, because this root is extremely powerful.
Jim: Extremely powerful.
Jim: Oh, you can carry the root in your pocket when you go to a job interview. Every time I've done that, I've gotten the job. Oh, every time. Every time my husband has carried it, he's gotten the job.
Jim: You gotta be careful with it cuz you might not want that job and you'll get that job offer.
Katie: Oh, this is a, be careful what you wish for a moment.
Jim: It is. It's a really powerful route and it is a route that can be used to create the power. And you also don't want to overuse it because it is easy to just think that it's gonna work all the time, but we use it sparingly and it's a really cool experience.
Jim: So you treat it gingerly, but I really like to decorate that root. You can use powdered or granulated iron pyrite like glitter. Oh, I like to wrap it in gold or silver thread. Make a little loop at the top and use glue on it.
Jim: And then. Put Iron Pirate on the glue or glitter sequencer or gemstones to it. You can anoint it. It takes oils really well because it's got lots of porous little holes on it. And you can put it on a long string or cord and wear it under your clothing and it's fragrant and it's a really great talisman to wear.
Jim: So that's a really cool one. It's ugly looking. You can decorate it, but then it's really this powerful thing and you put it on, hold it, and really think about you're wearing High John the Conqueror, and then you step into whatever situation needs you to be in a dominant or a winning position, and you walk in with your head held, hide your shoulders back, chest out, and just own.
Jim: Own the day, own the casino. Yes.
Katie: I feel like we've all been in the presence of a person like that. Yeah. Where it's like they just walk by you and you're like, woo. Can't help but to look and who's that person? Are they famous or something? Are they a model? Yeah. What's going on?
Jim: Yes. And you can walk through that casino with a smile and just like owning the whole casino and enjoying it, people will come up and offer you a cocktail, a beverage. And you can pick your high roller table wherever you want.
Katie: Oh fabulous. I can't wait. Yeah. I'll have to get some before we go.
Katie: I'm sure a lot of people out there have various ambulances, talismans, whatever they use for luck. We would love to hear from you. So if you want go ahead and you can always comment on our Instagram, you can drop us an email at [email protected], or you can join us over on Patreon where we are running a really cool event all March long, which we'll talk about more at the end.
Jim: And here on our YouTube, you can leave us a comment.
Jim: So a lot of people wear a like saint charm. Or a medallion. And I'm wondering what saint is the patron saint of luck. I know that St. Jude is like lost causes.
Jim: People will wear different patron saints in different ways. And so I know that like it's pretty common to see people gambling in Vegas with a medallion, a saint Medallion, as they're gambling. And sometimes I wonder is that your lucky charm?
Jim: I just think about like how fun it would be to have little excerpts of people in Vegas and Katie asking. All right. What's your lucky charm? You got one That's right. I
Katie: clock your necklace. You wanna explain what that's all about? Yeah. Yeah. Oh yeah. Fun.
Katie: I wanna out people, not like Billy on the street. I wanna be Katie in the side. Katie in the club. Katie in the club. Yeah. Much better attitude there. I would do Billy on the street though, but , people are not gonna find me as threatening.
Jim: So for a dollar, what's your magic talisman.
Katie: Do you have a lucky charm for a dollar?
Jim: So dumb. If you have a lucky charm and you wanna share, you don't have to share specifics. Don't like, give up your, secret. But if you have one. and you can share it with us, generally what it is I would love to know. So comment down below and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
Jim: We would love to know what it is.
Katie: Yes. And if you know of any weird little things that might be in Vegas that I have to check out that you're like, oh, Katie, this would be great for your podcast. Let us know. I'll make sure to visit while I'm there, if it's possible. Yeah.
Katie: Awesome. Cool. Let's take a quick break and when we come back we're gonna unbox all these goodies from Parlour of Wonders.

Katie: Plus you get to hang out with Jim and I.
Katie: We hope to see you there and we'll see you next week.
Jim: And we're back. I forgot to mention. Polka dot socks. What is with polka dot socks? It's required. So this comes from New Year's. If you want money in the new year, wear polka dots. And so it's hard for guys, especially to find stuff that has polka dots on it.
Jim: Oh. I guess neckties. But it's easier for women, I think, to find articles of clothing that have polka dots. Yeah. But one of the things that I found is socks. You can find, especially now, men's, like wild socks that have polka dots on them. Yeah. So I wear polka dot. All the time, almost every day.
Jim: And that is like something that is associated with coins. And the polka dots are coins. So like when we go to Vegas, especially, I always make sure I'm wearing polka dot boxer shorts, polka dot socks because it is associated with the money. And the coins, especially out of the slot machines.
Jim: Cool. So that's something for you to try. And it's really easy of course, for women to find polka dots, but that'd be a fun thing for you to try too, is polka dots for the coins. Oh
Katie: my gosh. I am going to buy nothing but polka dot underpants because I want coins coming out my butt.
Katie: They don't pay you in coins anymore anyway. Yeah. What? No. No. Very few places pay out in like the traditional quarters or coins anymore. It's all just like a printed ticket.
Jim: No, That is lame. It is lame. You're right. If you don't hear that ching, ching, ching ching, ching ching, there's no reason.
Katie: Oh no. They still play the sound, but you don't get it that way. Like when you print out the ticket, it
Jim: goes, it's noting ding. No. If you don't, which
Katie: is why you just have to aim for a hand pay, because that's where the real action's at.
Jim: You have to go to those old places that actually still put the coins in the metal.
Katie: Come on. If I find one, I will play it just for you, Jim. If you're a digital witch about it. You're gonna have better luck with gambling on the slots nowadays, I think. Because it's all tech, it's all just video games so what's gonna help me win these video games?
Jim: Oh, yeah. Okay. Are we unboxing? Yeah, let's unbox some stuff. Props to Madame Pamita. Yes. For setting us this amazing box. She is the most generous, fabulous human serious. I love her so much with her purple hair and Onareo works there.
Jim: Yes, he is amazing. So thank you Onareo and
Jim: Pamita look. Yeah,
Katie: there he is Onareo .
Katie: I was like, oh, she must be working with him. That's funny cuz she included a little one of his cards, which is a lovely card by the way. And of course it is because of Virgo made it.
Katie: And so she very kindly provided us with things to try out while we, me, I am in Vegas.
Katie: And as you may not be surprised to know she had a bevy of amazing things for us to try. So we're gonna unbox those now and do a little like what they are and how we might use them.
Katie: And if anybody has used any of these items, again, please let us know what your experience has been and all that good stuff.
Katie: So item number one,
Katie: she always includes a fortune card, so it's all sealed. On the back wax
Jim: sealed envelope. And it's a little metallic, isn't it? Like golden. It
Katie: is. Yep. Oh, and so I'm gonna open this when I get to Vegas as part of what our luck will be when we get there, our fortune. So stay tuned for that.
Katie: And then we have cards, so of course Onareo. And then the Love Witch which is one of their advisors. They have on staff there. I imagine
Jim: both of them are advisors there and are fabulous.
Katie: Big props.
Katie: Yeah. She also nicely included a little bit of one of her, ooh, tea blends here. This one is the true love potion.
Jim: Yeah. You always get little samples. So nice.
Katie: And then we have all of her upcoming events, which is very nice. We got all of her workshops over at Catland and her own website and all sorts of fun workshops. Remember, you can always go to her website, parlourofwonders.com to learn more.
Jim: Madam and I are gonna be speaking at Paganicon In March, we're gonna be doing the Palmistry Tarot Mashup live in Minneapolis St Paul, so that'll be an amazing event.
Katie: That's mid-March, right? Or towards the end? Yes.
Katie: All right, so awesome packing material. Appreciate that. It's fun colors and keeping everything safe.
Jim: Not only that, it's all recyclable. And biodegradable. So those yes popcorns that you're pulling out of there, dissolve in water.
Jim: They are not styrofoam. So these are the edible
Katie: ones. , don't eat them. Yeah, but you could eat them.
Jim: These are the good ones she's committed to low environmental impact. That's so nice.
Katie: The pack job on this is lovely. Everything is wrapped up. Except for this amazing candle, which does not even need to be wrapped.
Katie: So first thing we have is the lucky horseshoe candle. Woohoo. It's gorgeous gold, which I have to imagine is like beeswax. Anybody? Yes. It's a big one too. This is a big candle. How long do you think this is gonna take me to burn Jim
Jim: A while.
Katie: Wow. All right. So we'll make sure it's not like a one day burn.
Jim: So look at the side of that. This is where you can inscribe your intention on the candle if you want. You can also put an intention underneath on a paper. But you can inscribe what you want on the side of that. That's why I'd love this horseshoe because it'll take a really good intention along that flat surface.
Jim: And of course it's alt bees wax. It's in that natural color. Yeah. And you can get the horseshoe candle in any color from her, but this is a very powerful luck candle for sure.
Katie: I'm excited to light it up and put all of our intent in there and maybe I'll even bring a piece of it with me in my pocket is like my part of my lucky bag.
Jim: Oh yeah. That's what you can do with some of the remains of the wax. Is, that was a lucky candle spell. So you can take some of the remains and ball it up. That's another talisman. Like a bead around a string and wear that around your neck. And then it's fragrant from the oils, and some of the herbs and some of the glitter. And then you smell the beeswax and the herbs against your warm skin. And that ends up being a really wonderful talisman around your neck.
Katie: Ooh, that's gonna be great. Plus aren't bees like all about abundance, so it's like bees wax, totally bee perfect.
Katie: Makes so much sense.
Katie: Next up we have, oh, everything is wrapped. It's so freaking cute with a little sticker and everything. A Billiken coin.
Jim: I can't wait to talk about that in our next episode, so next week. Stay tuned.
Katie: That's right. We'll go into it in more detail.
Jim: Yes, and we'll talk about this coin and many other ways to use coins for luck because when we started going down that rabbit hole Katie?
Katie: Yeah, that was quickly a whole topic that it needed to be on its own.
Jim: So stay tuned to learn how to use that Billiken and coin in many others, and coin magic next.
Katie: Yes. And thus our next item is, ooh, speaking of something you could put on a coin. We have good luck oil.
Jim: Oh, I can't wait for you to smell this.
Katie: Little gems in the bottom. Beauty.
Katie: Oh, wow. It smells like. Clove and cinnamon and just something that like wakes you right up. I love it.
Jim: It smells like luck itself.
Katie: There you go. Imagine that.
Jim: So I apply the Good luck oil to my arms, I apply it to my chest, I apply it here and I just radiate luck as I walk around.
Jim: Oh my gosh. It's the best. Yeah.
Katie: Do you just use it like straight out of the
Jim: Because it's already cut with other carrier oils that are not nut free and it's really excellent. Cool. All right.
Katie: Definitely anointing everything with that in my hands and the machine. As much as they'll let me do,
Jim: You can put it in your hands like this and then, that's really fantastic.
Katie: The next item I pulled out is good luck potion. So this is like a loose leaf tea, but really it's just, a collection of lucky herbs. Oh my. Oh, it's so beautiful.
Jim: Look at that. Oh, that looks amazing.
Katie: Ooh, these are like high quality pieces. These aren't just powdered. How does it smell? Actually tell what they are. It smells like Christmas is what it smells like, and I'm sure it's because of the star anus and the cinnamon and the clove. Oh my gosh.
Jim: She's gonna brew it right now.
Katie: Immediately put this in my body. And I was thinking the obvious way to consume and use this is brewing a tea, drinking it. But after going on Pam's website, I realized, of course, this is really just like a wash. You can brew it into anything, put it in a spray bottle , put it into a bath. So many options, Jim.
Katie: Plus it comes in this nice tin, which I know I'll be able to reuse and not just throw out, which is a bonus.
Jim: Okay. What's in the box?
Katie: It is the Gambler's Lucky Seven Mojo Bag triple strength.
Katie: Because why go for strength when you can get triple strength?
Jim: That's what I buy when I'm at the drugstore. Triple Strength.
Katie: Nobody gets strength. You get extra strength. No strength is dead.
Jim: Now available without a prescription from Madame Pamita's Parlour of Wonders.
Katie: That means you get three times the amount of what the regular strength would be.
Jim: Some people need it.
Katie: I need it! Before rolling into what I perceive as being maybe my only lucky decade ever. Luck be a Katie.
Katie: When I was previously in Vegas. I would step away from people so that they had better luck and that worked . Time I'm the lucky charm and people around me will get lucky. So I'm very much looking forward to flipping the script. This is gonna help.
Katie: First things first, I see instructions. Which again on really nice paper on. Paper, by the way, nobody prints out instructions to include anymore. There's instructions on what it is. How to put it together, which I'm glad I'm reading this ahead because she says I need to connect with my mojo bag for seven days straight before I use it. Much like, breaking in a new deck of tarot cards or ruins, that sort of thing.
Katie: Always make sure you read the instructions at a time before you do things, folks. Then of course, instructions on don't let people touch it, what to do to extend it, make sure you feed it, and all that good stuff.
Jim: Amazing. This shows how Madame Pamita was a teacher.
Jim: Yes. And it really is beautiful how she's able to give really loving and supportive instructions that are really clear. Yes. And then of course, she's got YouTubes that you can watch that are fabulous and inspiring.
Katie: Agreed. And I think folks who are knitters, and I use that as a specific example, only because I personally know that many designers nowadays are almost required to really provide a video aspect for certain skills because people wanna know from you how to do it because you are the expert, you are the designer, you are the magical crafter, whatever it is, right?
Katie: Yeah. Folks who are crafters, but not necessarily magical practitioners, they're just sort putting those two together. Parlour of Wonders this website is a very easy, digestible first step into getting it. Yeah. It's such a huge resource on all of these items.
Jim: What else do you have?
Katie: We have the bag, so it's green, obviously for luck. And then it also includes some green thread and needles to us sew on everything. Charm. Oh, petition paper, green, obviously luck. And then we have, Ooh, okay, so we have a silver mercury dime.
Katie: Wow. A horseshoe with a four-leaf clover in the middle.
Jim: Oh, that's cool.
Katie: Very cute. Oh wait. Here. Maybe that was the correct side. There we go.
Jim: Oh yeah. So that's for the outside. Yep.
Katie: So you'll awesome that to the outside of the bag. Some nutmeg.
Katie: It concludes Buckeye. Jobs tears? Jobs tears.
Katie: It's jobs because the tears of your old jobs.
Jim: Yeah. All the people that miss you from your old jobs that wish that's you was still there.
Katie: Then this is, I'm guessing load
Jim: Load Stone is a magnetic stone that attracts things to you.
Jim: Oh. So it's gonna be an attractive agent to add to the mojo bag. Makes total sense. Very powerful. Load stone, natural magnetic stone.
Katie: Cinnamon. Arrow root.
Jim: Arrow root, yep. That makes sense.
Katie: I'm learning a lot of new things here. I've never heard of this one Yellow Doc.
Jim: Oh, yep. Yellow Doc.
Katie: One of my favorite words. Sassafras. Sassy. FRAs.
Katie: Another one we were talking about. Pyrite.
Jim: Oh, iron pyrite. Yeah. Is that a chunk or is it Sprinkles? It's a chunk. Oh, excellent. Yeah. That'll go in there with the load stone also has iron. I wonder if you have iron filings in there. That'll be interesting to see.
Jim: Oh, it's okay. Keep going.
Katie: Then we have Irish moss.
Jim: Oh, of course. Irish moss.
Katie: And we have a sliver of ginger, like a slice of it. Okay, nice. And finally, alpha Alpha. Alfalfa.
Katie: And then of course it comes with the Good Luck oil also. So it came with good luck oil in the kit.
Katie: And then she also sent Good Luck oil on top of that. So I'm gonna be all oiled up.
Jim: You can use that on your candle. You can use that on your body. You can feed bag itself. You can also feed the load stone, some iron filings.
Katie: Oh cause it's magnetic, right? Yeah. Now that you've said that there might be some, it looks like there are some Yeah, it's kinda like around it.
Jim: Yeah, of course it wants that. So it's been fed already? Yeah. Oh,
Katie: it's good. Of course it is. She knows everything.
Jim: She knows. This is amazing. I can't wait to see how this goes.
Katie: I might do like a side video for our patrons of me putting everything together.
Katie: Yes. Just for why not.
Jim: Subscribe to our Patreon. And you can watch Katie put all this together. It'll be amazing.
Katie: And remember, we are running all month long, starting this very week, our whole month of March Magic to inspire you with weekly challenges hosted on our Patreon page to make things like a magical talisman like we're talking about this week, or a coin that's lucky to you.
Katie: So if you join our Patreon, which is just $13 a month, that's open to that level and also the new superfans level. So if you're interested in also joining my personal Patreon, which is on there, that has even more magical making, crafting tips, you can join for a discount, and that's the superfans level.
Katie: So either Knit A Spell level is open to all of our challenges, and each week we also have prizes. And this week's prize, Jim, is very fitting a copy of Amulets and Houseman's for Beginners by Richard Webster, published by Llewellyn.
Jim: It's a great book, very foundational.
Jim: You'll learn tons.
Katie: It's nice and digestible.
Katie: So remember, you can find out more at patreon.com/LightFromLantern
Jim: I can't wait till next week when we talk all about coins and using magic.
Jim: Let us know what your magic talisman is in the comments section or by sending us an email, and I can't wait to see you next week when we flip the script on coin magic.
Katie: Yes. I can't wait to flip out with you.
Jim: Bye everybody. See you then.
