Oracle Deck Flip Thru and Oracle Deck Box

Oracle Deck Flip Thru and Oracle Deck Box

Oracle Deck Flip Thru Today I wanted to share a video of my Oracle deck.  I started this deck in October of last year before I had found Effy Wild and the Moonshine class. I had been taking classes with byBun and had developed this cool painterly way of doing backgrounds that I really enjoyed and had decided to make these cards to see what happened.  The cards were so cool that I started to put affirmations on front and…

Life happens! 1 am arrivals, food poisoning, skittish kitties, and an emergency plumber

Life happens! 1 am arrivals, food poisoning, skittish kitties, and an emergency plumber

Whew, my last 24 hours has been an adventure.  After our exciting, fun filled day in Atlanta we got back on the road and headed toward Savannah to see my mom.  She is at home recovering from an extensive surgery and I haven’t seen her in months. It’s about a 4 hour drive between the two cities so we headed out early with the intention to stay the night near my mom before heading home today.  It was nice to…

Spring break in Atlanta!

Spring break in Atlanta!

For the last decade I have been traveling to Atlanta for work and my son (Dorian) has been asking to go. So this year we decided to make that happen since we are running out of forced family fun time…he is already 17 and so much less interested in family vacation. Since it’s his spring break we took advantage and hit the road to see family and be tourists. I would have never thought  that Atlanta was a spring break…

Road trip! Cheating on my fur babes….

Road trip! Cheating on my fur babes….

Road trip and fur babes it’s always nerve wracking to leave the house on a road trip.  Line up the house sitter for the cats, dog in the kennel, check the car, pack the things, don’t forget the people…and the snacks. Pile into the car and kiss the next several hours of your life away as you travel to your destination…hopeful the entire way for no mishaps. We did that yesterday. Almost 9 hours on the road to visit family….

Learning to record art videos

Learning to record art videos

Over the years I have watched so many YouTube videos. Good, bad, bad but still educational, and well made that don’t have a good purpose. I’ve logged many hours watching things and learning what I do and don’t like about recording art videos. I always thought…I want to do that! And I have in the past and they were terrible. That’s when I learned I had a good idea and a terrible plan.  I started watching videos of people showing…

Encaustic, decluttering, and painting bathrooms

Encaustic, decluttering, and painting bathrooms

Decluttering commences!!!   Weekends go by so fast that you really need to wring out all the time you can during them.  I remember back when I was in my 20s it was so much fun to go out to clubs, stay up until the wee hours of the morning and then sleep half the day away.  Over the years I have become much more focused on the day light hours.  This includes getting up drinking much less, going to…

Q3 2017 – life updates

Q3 2017 – life updates

It’s tiresome to say life gets busy.  While it does it is so important to make time for important things like living life.  When I started this blog in early 2017 I started to do all the research about running a successful blog and all the things…all the posts, the marketing, the sharing, the rules.  Oh the rules…so many rules that over time I became paralyzed.  I lost the site and had to rebuild, it was hard to reengage and…
