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!!! And that is OK, as the process for creating it felt huge and messy. 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”
2020 has been fucking eventful, to say the very least. It has been nothing short of dramatic; that much is true! We bought our first home and moved into it in mid- March, the very same day we were both laid off of work due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It has been very stressful, butContinue reading “Let’s Play Catch Up…”
What in the hell would I do, on those days when my head spins and spins with shit I can’t control, without art to distract me? I would definitely be on lock down somewhere, just sayin’. It’s also a good reminder. We can thank God for our creativity on the days when we can’t findContinue reading “Drawing is the perfect distraction!”
Life really is like the Wheel of Fortune. Things that go down always come back up again. That is a good and a bad thing. Either way… it’s a thing. The bad thing about funerals is that someone you love has died. The good thing about funerals is that it brings you together with yourContinue reading “A Family Reunion and Another Funeral”
Man, when it rains, it pours sometimes. The universe has been giving me lots of opportunities to take a break lately, it seems. I guess I wasn’t listening to the deafening screams of the Universe to “Slow down!” because I tripped as I was going over a puppy gate and fell down three RV steps,Continue reading “I’m still here, Yo!”
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. At first, I thought about this decision we had made and I wanted to run and hide under a rock! “WHY!?!?!” Although the trailer is nice, it seemed like an obviousContinue reading “A New Chapter in the Book of Shilo”
My dad has been in ICU for a week now. He has to a have a defibrillater implanted into his heart tomorrow morning, while his blood pressure stays at a very low rate. I’m worried. I am so fucking scared of facing life on Earth without him. I can’t stand the thought of losing him,Continue reading “Drawing it out… 😭”
Death is so final. I have always had so much hope that with modern technology and medical advances, that my dad would be fine. I’ve never been the best at handling terminal illness and death. And the death of someone close to me nearly destroys me. I’m still trying to deal with the loss ofContinue reading “My Life is Crashing Down With My Daddy”
It’s true. We have to be crazy to have kids. 😂 Kids are hard. Kids are hard. Shit, mom’s are hard. Dogs are so easy… (Thank God for dogs!) At the end of the day, they all are WORTH IT! ❤️ I love my mama and I love being a mom. Happiest of Mother’s DaysContinue reading “All Mother’s Are Slightly Insane”
We all have many different people hidden inside of us, for every person that cares for us and that we care for becomes a part of us somehow. Who are you today? Are you the person that is on the inside that only you know, or are you the one on the outside that everyoneContinue reading “Double Take”
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!”
I had some spare time on our 13-hour journey to Oregon! Just enough time to sit with this beauty and give her a matching edge. I love her even more! 😍 #myworkingdeck #cooptylew
#madmarchtarot19 #cooptylew Deck: Alice Tarot by Baba Day 1: Alice dealt me the Nine of Coins. Alice must’ve picked up on the fact that she’s my very favorite, (Alice rocks, though she is the hardest to draw!), and that I practice my art and the tarot everyday. She also must’ve sensed that I love aContinue reading “#cooptylew is TOTALLY doing the #madmarchtarot challenge!”

Hi guys! I love creating spreads because doing it combines the two creative things that I love the most: art and tarot. It’s a thing. When my sister died suddenly and unexpectedly in May 2016, I turned to Tarot in order to try to communicate. I was literally at a loss for words and couldContinue reading ““How You Been, My Long Lost Friend,” a Spread for the Dead”
