Very honoured to have my latest deck ~ 'Flower Reading Cards'
beautifully featured in the latest issue of The Cartomancer Journal.
Smiling like a Cheshire Cat this morning!
tiny tiny sneak peek!
Love this international publication and to have my new deck selected
and featured as an example of some of the best artwork in current decks available this quarter is such a wonderful moment.
May Nature always bless you
and may you always be a blessing to Nature!
Many, many moons ago I had my personal mantra 'passion decides fate'
tattooed on my forearm surrounded by Ivy, a plant which hold very deep symbolic meaning for me.
For the past year, my daughter, Maddison who is a tattoo artist, has added an image which symbolises a milestone reached with each of my publications. For my Oracle decks, it is an image drawn by my daughter, inspired by their backs. It is a really lovely celebration and I am incredibly blessed this week.
For my 'Flower Reading Cards' ~
Years ago I used Fountain Pens because I loved them.
The sound of the gentle scratching on papers, the way the ink flowed once you had had gotten the feel of each pen and knew the way to move to ensure a beautiful flow. The splatters, the skips, they too were things I even enjoyed with delight!
I not only wrote with them, I sketched with them as well.
Then... someone I loved told me I was a "pretentious bitch" for using them.
I stopped using them. I lost them... one...by....one.
I eventually lost my beautiful favourite French Fountain Pen.
2016, I declare to be ~
The year of the Fountain Pen
and I shall have my beautiful French Fountain Pen once more.
Maybe others would never of let this happen. Maybe.
Perhaps I was not so strong or brave or brilliant or independent as others.
I'm just me, imperfect me, a growing me and maybe it's taken me a little longer to reclaim that which is me. I'm ok with it.
