Imbolc Sabbat Pages
ALL ITEMS IN OUR STORE ARE HANDMADE AND TAKE TIME TO PRODUCE. IT CAN TAKE UP TO 2 WEEKS FOR PAGES TO SHIP.
Celebrate Imbolc with these Book of Shadow pages. The pages include facts about the Sabbat, a list of ways to celebrate, and an incantation to recite during your Imbolc ritual. The incantation appears in a window so the texture of the spell page behind it shows through. The pages have been covered in lavender and sage because those herbs are associated with Imbolc. Three out of the four double sided pages have been filled with facts, pictures and herbs. The last page is blank so you can add your own art and words to your Imbolc ritual.
The paintings included on the pages are:
The Shortening Winter’s Day is Near a Close by Joseph Farquharson
Wildflowers by John Willam Waterhouse
Spring by John Maler Collier

Imbolc is the first of three spring sabbats. It is a celebration of banishing the winter season and welcoming the return of light as the days grow longer. It is a time to honor Brigid, the Celtic goddess of fire. Imbolc is traditionally a fire festival. The sun is not warming us yet so we must rely on fire to keep us warm. Brigid is a Triple Goddess who represents the Maiden, Mother, and Crone, During Imbolc the Crones time ends and the Maiden's time begins.
These double sided Parchment Paper pages have been mounted onto a three hole punched backing. They are ready to be added to your Adjustable Book of Shadows. I invented them because I wanted scrapbook pages free from plastic sheet protectors. The pages are all 8 ½ by 11 inches. The 3 holes have been punched into an extra ½ inch strip on the side of the page. They make a wonderful crisp sound as you turn the pages. The pages are made of brand new Ivory Parchment Paper but look aged. All mounted page come with frayed edges and are stained with coffee, paint and charcoal. Your Book of Shadows will look like an old family heirloom.
