There was lots of scribbling and mistakes and I didn’t always like theContinue reading “How Inner Child Artist Oracle Came To Be: The Progression of the Process is Sticky Sometimes”

I have to finish editing 22 stories in the guidebook for Inner Child Artist Oracle. The stories are from my inner child’s perspective, and some of them are not easy to write, and even harder to read.

Although I always try to see the good in other people, sometimes it is necessary to defend yourself with truth. The proof is always in the pudding. According to one person, (whom shall remain unnamed and unseen): “Since when do you work?! You’ve been busy sitting around and doing nothing while your husband works hisContinue reading ““Baby, you’ve been prolific!””

Artsy Tarotist I draw and paint the cards to learn the meaning of them, and by doing this, I learn the cards in such a way that it’s not memorization, but it is actual learning and integration of the new knowledge. I definitely suggest researching the symbols on the card and then trying to drawContinue reading “IMPORTANT COOPTYLEW UPDATES!”
