Recent edits[edit]

Saw this was a stub and decided to make it my first Wikipedia project. :) I added flags that I thought were fitting and also added the template for Wikipedia:WikiProject Neopaganism. I'm very much a newbie editor, so please feel free to lend a guiding hand as I get to work over the next couple of days! Alesta Starbreeze (talk) 07:00, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Made my first major revision today. Sadly it looks like I only have one book that addresses kitchen witchcraft, but I got out of it what I could. I expanded the opening bit about what kitchen witchcraft is about and decided to keep the bit about mundane objects used in place of magical objects, though reworded and left with a citations needed tag. I decided to take out the segment about kitchen witches in fiction, because while the witches in Terry Pratchett's book might very well practice kitchen witchcraft, until Terry confirms what his characters do, I think that's original research.
I also added a small segment on kitchen witch dolls - I think this may actually be a folk custom not necessarily originating in the modern idea of (kitchen) witchcraft, but it seemed like a good example of something easy to make and practical within the context of this article. Plus my one source talked about it in her segment on kitchen witchcraft and I had sources, so I thought why not.
Also kept the Cunningham "reference," scooting it down to "further reading" along with my source and another book on kitchen witchcraft, and took out the "citations missing" flag. Even though there's not a lot, I tried to cite everything possible. Alesta Starbreeze (talk) 14:05, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

The sources listed don't appear to fit Wikipedia's standards. I also see little proving that this subject is notable, especially re: "independent of the subject". Furthermore, that books have been written about a subject does not make it notable, especially when those books are original research by religious practitioners.
