My name is Brenna Meade. I'm currently based in Connecticut where I was born and grew up, and quite honestly - never left. I'm obsessed with graphic design, making jewelry, and I also love designing websites! On my main website, The Spoonless Witch, I offer handmade jewelry, all-natural skincare, prints of my photography, which you will see here on the page photography, and I do tarot readings as well. My goals are to get better at graphic design, website building, and coding. 

I first picked up a camera when I was about 5 or 6 years old; my mom's friend had given her a camera and she let me use it often. Eventually it became more than just playing around and having fun, and it became something I thought about continuing on into a career. I entered my pictures in local our local county fairs and won blue ribbons in both our local fairs multiple years. For  birthdays and Christmases, I would often ask for a new camera, and I appreciate that both my parents helped me support my dream. As I grew older, different hobbies and crafts came into the mix, which is when I opened up my website, The Spoonless Witch. Thankfully, I've had a lot of support there from friends, family, and my new customers.

I'm really thrilled about this new chapter of my life with this new business, new website, new tools. I feel like there's a shift coming, and I'm so ready for it to catch me! 

 

The Story of the Firefly, the Feather, and the Stars that you see in all my logos and promotional images.

About two months ago, I was leaving the living room and heading upstairs to go to bed at about 3 o'clock in the morning on a weekend; but when I turned the living room lights off, I saw a faint green glow on the carpet. I pulled out my cellphone and turned on the flashlight, and looked around to see if I could find the source of the glow. I finally found it - it was a sweet little firefly! I knew if it stayed trapped in the house, it would absolutely not survive more than another day or two. So, I grabbed a tissue and began trying to pick it up gently, so I could release it outside. Unfortunately, it kept moving further and further underneath the couch, so I finally had to raise up the foot of the chair so I would be able to reach it. Once I raised the chair and knelt down to scoop my new little friend up, I noticed there was a white feather laying on the carpet right next to it. I picked up the feather and gently wrapped the tissue around the firefly. Naturally, it didn't want to be held, so by the time I got it up and outside, it was crawling on my hand and headed down my arm. I finally opened the front door and stepped out onto the front step, and as I looked up at the star filled sky above me I released him, so he and his bright shining light could rejoin the galaxy of stars that shine bright above all of our heads.
