INFJ personality type is rare, and very misunderstood, but they can be beautiful!
The deck started out small, and was meant for personal use only, but it transformed itself many times as I went along. It soon became huge and MESSY!!!

It has been very stressful, butContinue reading “Let’s Play Catch Up…”

I have been absent. And I have been absent in more than just my website… I have been absent in my life in general.

A tailspin implies that everythingContinue reading “What in the actual fuck is going on?”
Moving on like Donkey Kong! My husband and I seriously just moved a 3,000 square foot life into a 31 foot RV. It’s nuts.

I drew my niece tonight. She didn’t call me for Mother’s Day. She has called me every Mother’s Day since her mom died, three years ago, but she didn’t call this year. And I know why… It doesn’t make me happy. I used to think she was a heroin addict, but I know now thatContinue reading “She Thinks She’s a Fucking Kite”

From a happy customer! “I presented my 33 yr old son with his own Banksy deck tonight. It was chosen for its limited edition number and signed to him personally. His recent work as a freedom fighter in his own right prompted the gift. What he is doing is slightly dangerous and controversial. As “children”Continue reading “A Tarot Banksy Review TO DIE FOR!”
Flip-through of several tarot decks, including urban, practical magic, dust II onyx, and MORE!!!
