It's a Celebration- all because of you!!

Thursday, August 1, 2013

You heard the Sirens' Call and responded.

On Sunday, we posted that we'd been sabotaged and had lost our Facebook page. You, the lovely community, pulled together and in four days' time, we have surpassed our original fan-base... and it keeps on growing!

The Sirens are all thrilled and overwhelmed by your outpouring of love and support, and to show our gratitude, we're going to throw a little party here, Siren-style.

First, let's have a little musical celebration. Our Music Siren, Kestril Trueseeker, has found the perfect song by Kenny Klein (who helped us tremendously in getting here- Thank you, Kenny!). We'd all love it if you'd show your gratitude and support to him as well. Please visit his website and send him some love. In the meantime, The Season of the Witch has begun ;)




Next up, Loren (one of our Artsy Sirens and Administrators) shared a Lughnasadh craft that is easy and fun for the whole family to make:

Click here for instructions on how to make it.



Our Sirens party wouldn't be complete without a great recipe, but oh, do we have some TREATS for YOU!
One of The Sirens' favorite bloggers, Autumn Earthsong, has given us her permission to share a link to her Lughnasadh Recipes page. It's filled with all kinds of fantastic concoctions for your Lughnasadh celebration!





So hop on over to her wonderful site, "My Moonlit Path", enjoy the recipes and leave her a comment that The Sirens sent you!! You're welcome :)
