Where does the name Treegold and Beegold come from?
The name is a reference to the given bestowed upon Freyja's two cats who pull her chariot across the sky by the author Diana Paxson in her story Brisingamen. She wrote the names as Tregul and Bygul which mean Amber and Honey.
Who is behind Treegold and Beegold?
I'm Velody and I'm a married mom of two young children, a boy and a girl who has been following a pagan based faith for over 13 years now. I've always loved to create things and was taught to sew from a fairly young age. In the past few years, especially after my children were born, I've dedicated myself to creating more original designs. I'm a certified teacher in my state and as my children age I have begun creating lessons and printables to enhance their education. I moderate a Pagan Parenting group on Facebook that is open for all to join.
What is the intention of Treegold and Beegold?
Once I became pregnant I quickly realized the plethora of items out there made for babies. I was overwhelmed by the shear amount of stuff, some quite odd in my opinion, that is made. One category of item I couldn't find though? There was nothing for specifically for the Pagan /Heathen parent. Yes there is plenty of earth or green themed items. But other than some t-shirts and onsies I couldn't find anything with a pentacle on it or directly marketed to Pagan/Heathen parents. So the idea of Treegold & Beegold came about to fill that void and make items specifically for this demographic. The blog first began as just a way to promote the store but as I've been working on it it's begun to create a life of its own as both being a personal outlet, a place to showcase my creations and items for sale and a share project ideas with other pagan parents. I really hope to regularly do tutorials for crafts and specifically pagan or seasonal themed crafts.
