charts, etc...are housed therein. From the humble beginnings of the ancient people recording their traditions, to this witches "life saver". The grimoire will always be one of my favorite tools...
A couple of months ago I decided that my BOS (Book of Shadows) need a makeover. Ever one to dive right in, like a kid in a candy store, I rose to the challenge. Lacking funds to turn my trusty 3 ring binder into an ornate book, like the one from The Neverending Story, I set out glam up my BOS. First, I searched through my scrap booking goodies for some paper and other shapes. Then to the craft bucket for the necessaries.
- something to cover your book with. It can be paper, cloth, or leather, whatever floats your boat.
- cutting instruments
- glue (I had to use hot glue as well for the cover)
- dividers are handy for organization
go hog wild...I have had the same binder for 11 years. It is a warehouse of my thoughts, wishes and hopes for all these years, and even contains some of my energy. So poured my heart and soul into making my BOS into something more...kind of like a good deed for something that has served me well for a long time.

However you decorate it, however you use it, whatever you put inside it, your BOS is an expression of yourself, and what you believe to be true. May yours serve you well!
