Plus, listen to Roz’s story of how they changed from using drag as a tool to hide into a tool for empowerment.
I just wanted to pop in and share that the recent re-airing of episode 1, just struck me. Felt like a reminder to come back on track. Towards the end of reading , Rachel said “Everyday I don’t have to see results, because I know that everything is in motion.”
Ah, this hit hard, replayed 3 times.
I was feeling in a rut this week, and this line completely pulled me out and put me back in the mindset that serves me. And now, it lives on a post-it note in my studio.
Thank you ladies for sharing your energy and making me feel as though I’m working with a couple of girlfriends as I’m sewing orders. 🤍🤍🤍

The best witchy podcast
I love this podcast! I’ve been getting back into my craft after a long hiatus, and it’s so nice to feel like I’m hanging out with my friends talking about witchy things. This is great for people who have been practicing for a while or are new.
