Kourtney Leaf
Kourtney Leaf is a Solitary Eclectic Witch who makes her home in Colorado. She is the proud wife to an amazing man and spends her days trying to keep up with their two daughters. She has always been attracted to the path. Even as a little girl she would read witchcraft books and try to call the elements, not really aware of what it was she was trying to accomplish. As she matured she began to understand what it meant to be a witch and began her path in a little park in Killarney Ireland. Years later her spirituality would play a key role in saving her sanity while caring for a NICU baby. That was 18 years ago, and while her path changes and evolves, it is still saving her sanity today. Kourtney also has a very creative side, and finds a kind of calm in the chaos when working on any number of her projects. Jewlery, quilting and crochert are just a few of her many creative outlets. 

You can find her witchy wares in her Etsy shop Cordelia's Charms.
