Welcome to the Learning Center!

Hi everyone. So today we are introducing this new section of our blog where we will be posting mostly information aimed to help those just learning or even just curious about Paganism & Witchcraft.

My specific area is celtic & norse but of course we will include information for as many areas as we can.

Staring after the first of the new year (2022) we hope to start adding to this section, our streams and even our discord with as much information as we find and/or know.

Hope to see you in the new year!

Blessed be

Updates

Hi everyone!! So we have a few updates for ya. 

We have updated our information page (I know I know finally right). All the links are now active and working.

Our blog has a new theme and will be continuously updated as we add to it.

Finally, our gallery has new software which also gave us the oppertunity to add a theme to that as well. Better user experience and interactions are some of the great features this software has added.

Take a look around and see all the great new changes and features!

Blessed Be

A little Info

Hiya everyone! So we have some news to share with y'all today. Unfortunatly our supply for our cutting boards has run dry and while we did have an idea that this would happen we also didn't think it would be this soon. Thankfully we have found a new supply of cutting boards. They are not the same BUT they give us a bit more features and sizes to work with. They are still 100% bamboo. We will be coming up with new designs to fit the sizes we will now have and of course keeping a couple of the old designs as well.

I know we have said in the past we wanted to start a service to help others learn the craft. So instead of focusing mostly on our retail side we will be redirecting our focus on helping. This means I will be doing a lot more research into where my calling is. Celtic and Norse traditions and practices. As I relearn or refreshing my knowledge if you will I will be trying to share that knowledge with y'all.

Eventually we do hope to add in more services for everyone. For example: I am a registered ordained High Priestess so I would like to be able to offer home cleansings, handfastings, ect...

I am still unsure of how I am going to set everything up for all this but I'm working on a plan with my wife. We will keep y'all updated as much as we can.

Blessed be

Oh and before I forget... We will be streaming a bit more in the future as that will be our main way of sharing the bulk of information. This blog will have the video from the stream linked through our Youtube channel with a short description. The blog will still have things that the streams will not and vise versa. We will be streaming (I hope) to mainly Facebook with Youtube staying as our archives.

More information as is comes....

Artsy Fartsy Night, We are even MORE INSANE!!!

Did some work on the 3D Printers, yup they are being right pains in the asre!

Nikki painted her corner shelf, came up with a new design few her coasters.
We went through some of our "tried and true" products on Etsy.

Not a terribly exciting night, but we were there!!! --

"Friday Night Lights" - Rinse, Repeat, Same Ol' Same Ol'

A SEVEN AND A HALF HOUR MARATHON!!!

Yup, we done broke our record!!!

Did quite a few GlowForge projects, a few 3D Prints, some 3D design (made a keyboard support for the craft table).

Went through the leveling process on the Ender 3v2 with the BL-Touch and Smith3D firmware. (right around the 3 hour 30 minutes point)

Sonja cussed a lot, ranted a bit.

Drilled some holes for a candle holder, made a few cuts on the table saw.

I slung some more paint and stain.

All in all a productive night and a wild crazy one to boot!

"Artsy Fartsy" - What can we whip up tonight?

Not a super exciting stream, we're still getting back into the swing of things, we'll get there soon, we PROMISE!

Nikki slung some more paint and stain, we fired off a GlowForge project or two.

Then Ender was cruising away doing a pegboard paint bottle holder.

I set up an M1A1 print project to hopefully do soon, then I can try my hand at slinging some paint. WoooHooo.

So a quiet night but not a dead night.

"Movers, Shakers and Makers" Some new tools, a new airbrush! Woo Hoo

Almost 5 and a half hours tonight!!

Showed off the new Table Saw.

Slung some paint with the new airbrush.

Printed some "nerdy"; stuff, Star Trek Comm Badges and painted them.

I did some cutting boards, showed off a new design.

DO BE AWARE - Around about 4 hours and 10 minutes there is a 20 minute "Be Right Back" as I was working on an airbrush issue.

"Saturday Night Live!" - A weee impromptu stream.

A look at some of the completed prints and some of the To Do prints.

Watch on Twitch - http://designcreations.design/

 
 

BE AWARE- Sonja did do some ranting about programmers and laziness and the sad state of affairs in the software development process lately.

She knows NOT ALL programmers are lazy and don't give a shit about their code. But unfortunately with corporate greed and understaffing and sweat shop conditions a lot of good programmers are giving up/in.

"Friday Night Lights" - Better Late Than Never!!!

Quickie update since we didn't do a full stream at 7pm.

Have a few products going on the Printers, a Star Trek Voyager in the Prusa, another Trinket Box run in the Ender and another Moon Phase Clock in the GlowForge.

Watch on Twitch too! - http://designcreations.design/

"Artsy Fartsy" Thursday! - Party On Dudes!

Slung some paint, tested a new stain process. Started a couple of prints on the 3D Printers. Made a quickie 3D business card prototype.

Overall not too bad, even if we were a bit sedate and "boring"

"Friday Night Lights" - A party in our shop!

Did our first print with TPU Flexible filament. Learned a few things, adjusted our settings and we'll play some more this weekend and show you our results Wednesday.

Nikki threw down some painting and showed off her skills.

Started an oval "Trinket Box" on the Ender, we'll show that off on Wednesday too.

"Artsy Fartsy" Stream. Taking on the paints of the world!

Febuary 24th 2021

 

Unfortunately last night's Pirate Chest Trinket Box didn't yield the highest quality print so we started another job with higher settings. Tested some colors on the "Ooopsy" one.

Nikki is still working on her Star Trek Voyager so we saw some more paint go down on that.

Worked on some stain samples on the GlowForge, started a Wiccan Trinket Box on the Ender.

The new Pirate Chest finished, the bottom came out about 95% perfect, happy with that. Though the top still needs more work and we need to find a final print orientation to get the result we want.

Catch it on Twitch at http://designcreations.design/

We'll post links on Facebook too, https://www.facebook.com/DesignCreationsOKC

Movers, Shakers and Makers! Marathon Stream!

Febuary 23rd 2021

 

Whew! A 4 hour and 45 minute stream!!

We are beat! Made an incense burner for Essence of Magic to fulfill an order that came in today, whooohoo!

Then we moved on to creating a new Pirate Chest Trinket Box in 3DS Max, slicing it and sending it to the Prusa! Hopefully just over 7 hours from now we will have a successful new design and product offering. If you are a glutton for punishment you can watch the print go down on the Prusa, just visit our Cams Links page at

https://www.designcreations.us/cams.php

We will post the stream up on YouTube (available in about 30 minutes) and our Blog and on Twitch if you didn't happen to catch us LIVE.

https://www.twitch.tv/videos/926071866

https://youtu.be/LH1Vf9nrDTU

We will catch y'all tomorrow Wednesday February 24, 2021 at 6pm CST for our Artsy Fartsy Stream. Hopefully the print succeeded and we can put some paint to the Pirate Chest!

Until then, night night, be safe and catch ya on the flip side!!!
