I've never really created a BOS and I feel like it's time. I've tried to add things to a book, but just don't feel it, if you know what I mean. I've even tried a couple of different styles of books, and pens, and everything. So this is what I'm thinking about:
I want to use a recipe box. That way I can easily add cards and take them out for use for a particular activity. I don't have a lot of space to work in, so this seems like it will work for me. And, in the long run, if I don't like it I can always add the cards to whatever book I end up loving.
So my question is, what should my categories be for the BOS? I have room for 10 but could always add more. Do you have sections for yours? What are they?
prayers/spells (or both)
moon phases and their means and what works best within each phase
there is soooo many more options
i think i am finally going to start mine as well - but im going to use a binder with tabes and folders so i can print out things from the internet and add and such. i love pics too so i might add a tab with pics of special dates.
I really dig the idea of a recipe box BOS! That sounds brilliant. Unfortunately, I'm super crazy long winded, so all my info wouldn't fit on cards, lol. It's kinda like the idea of those old fashioned "books", which were just pieces of sheaf in a box. Either way, I really like it. Good luck!
As far as categories, I would go with stuff that's actually important to you... The choices literally are endless.
My categories include:
Spells & Chants
Gems, Stones, & Their Uses
Runes & Symbols
Candle & Color Magic
Gods & Goddesses
The Wheel of the Year
I've also got an entire handwritten book on the language of flowers from Victorian England, and I'm working on Sigil Creation as well as Vodou.
Candles and Color Meanings
Crystals and Uses
Oils and Uses
Divination Tools not already categorized(like Runes and Tarot Cards,etc)
