About Miss Lara and Hearth Home Hoodoo
I, along with two
friends own and manage
Black Cat Root Shack, an eCommerce and eBay Hoodoo Supply store
featuring Lucky Mojo Products and our own goods.
Hearth Home Hoodoo is
my personal site, random blog and dump site for everything rootwork.
Update March 2011
Well looks like we are moving, my husband got a new job and
its too far from where we are now. So the in-person shop will be closed
for a while until I'm able to get it set back up again, but I will continue to
be available for over the phone consultations and readings. The new number
is 972-994-6644 and my rates remain the same.
For the next few months I will be reserving my work to
divination (tarot card, runes, pendulum) and hoodoo consultations. I will
not be doing any rootwork until we are settled and I have my altar spaces back
Hoodoo Update April '09
its been a seriously eventful couple of months.
Black Cat Root Shack over
on eBay is doing well. I
have received some
great feedback and ratings. I spoke with the people over at eBay the
other day, and the lady said it was the best ratings she's ever seen. I
shipping out quickly makes a real difference on eBay to customers. I
have been working hard to attract local customers. An initial shout out
has to go to cat yronwode over at
Lucky Mojo for sending me some great
conjure clients. Thank you Cat! In addition I've advertised over on
Craig's List for
Hoodoo Services, and that has brought in some local
rootwork customers. I've also launched my
Hoodoo Dallas Drug Store site
for those in the Dallas metroplex looking for
Hoodoo Stores and Candle Shops.
Amazingly not many apothecaries for root
work are around. My home is still my shop, but its had an overhaul,
allowing clients to come into a welcoming area that feels more like a consulting
business then my overly dogged house. Can we say YAY to baby gates?
I'd like to take a final moment to thank
Kelly, my apprentice, nanny, housekeeper and all around sanity check. If
you've called the shop recently, that sweet young thing that answered the phone
is Kelly, take a moment to say hello! She picking up the
rootwork quickly, and considering I keep quizzing her
randomly, she is really setting her mind to this. Feel free to quiz her
when you call -- she really likes that! *grins*
Thank you everyone, don't forget to stop back
and see what is coming next!
Update January '09
My store at eBay has become very
successful and I have been honored to get many rootwork clients who
have called me directly for work. I set vigil lights on my
altar for money, love, road opening, success and court case work.
I also make hand made mojo bags, spiritual baths, bottle spells,
honey jars and hot foot jars. If you would like to talk to me
about the work I can perform on your behalf, or if you are
interested in a custom product, please call the Black Cat Root Shack
shop at 972-994-6644 and ask for Lara.
Hoodoo Update October '08
We have made a lot of progress on
converting the Herb Magic
and Lucky Mojo pages to using the
online shopping cart. We still have many more pages to do over
the next few months as the inventory is huge. Also, I have
opened my eCommerce Store at
blackcat-rootshack eBay store. I have also kept the
www.blackcat-rootshack.com domain as a general informational
site on the various products. It still needs a lot of work,
but cat keeps me pretty busy, I'll get to it soon.
Update August '08
I am now a proud graduate of the
Rootwork Course! I am also working with Miss Cat helping
her with the website updates on the
Lucky Mojo Catalog
and Herb-Magic.com. I
expect to be opening my ebay store in the next month or so, under
the name Black Cat Root
Shack selling Lucky Mojo products. The girls go back to
school in a few weeks, and everything should begin hopping.
Hoodoo Update Jun
There has been a lot going on lately. Most notably I have
redone all my Altar spaces and taken on half a dozen new clients.
I have also added a new member of the family, a Corgie puppy by the
name of Mr. Wiggles. All the pictures of my altar spaces have been
updated, except the one below, which I'm saving for prosperity.
One never knows when one might need a little prosperity.
Greetings, I am Lara Rivera, a student root worker.
I am not currently open for business as a professional Hoodoo
Practitioner, however I am offering a number of limited services as
part of my study. I am located in Sachse, Tx which is in
Collin County, near Garland and Wylie and just outside of Dallas.
This picture was taken in front of my fire place in
my living room and is the main altar where I do my love and money
work. That is my dog Diva, she is a
Many people have asked me when I began to study or
practice magic/conjure and I tell them that is two different
answers. When I was a young woman, about 19, something
happened to me that scared me off the practicing of magic for the
next 20 years. During that time however, my fascination with
magic, folk lore and cultures of the Middle Ages grew dramatically.
So, I say that I have been honestly studying various forms of magic,
herbalism, folk lore and alternate religions for 20 years.
it was not until I moved to Texas and discovered Hoodoo that my
fascination turned into practice. On October 16th, 2006 I
became student #896 of
Yronwode the famed proprietor of
Lucky Mojo. I have not yet completed her course and
received my certification, but hope to do so in the next few months.
I will update this page with further information as
my services or situation changes. For now, if you stumbled
upon my site accidentally, please send me an email to say hello!
I will be setting up a newsletter and guestbook very soon.
