Weekend Send-Off: Festive Winter

Okay, okay - it’s technically still fall, but it sure feels like winter to me! Especially with all the holiday preprations and events happening. Speaking of which, for those of you in the triangle area, I’ll be at the Holiday Patchwork Market this Saturday & Sunday reading tarot and selling gift certificates, so be sure to stop by and say hello!

This week has been a beautiful array of readings, mentoring sessions, and preparation for the market. I even spruced up my display and got a snazzy new tablecloth. What can I say, I’m living large.

Weekend Send-Off: Cozy Times

Well, it’s cold here at last! Unfortunately, it’s been raining constantly, too. After three cloudy and damp days spent hunched over my computer putting the finishing touches on the updated Year Ahead Readings I felt like the tech version of Gollum. Seeing the sun today has been deeply enlivening and I’m hoping to spend some time taking in the fresh air and putting my garden to bed.

Though I have to admit I did have a blast adding some more magic to these readings. I have a special place in my heart for making artsy PDF booklets and readings (just ask my tarot students! I think my Tarot Basics class book is 30+ pages…) Amidst all that magic, I did have some time for tarot-related explorations, such as…

Weekend Send-Off: Seasonal Transitions

This week has been a nice, slow re-entry to post-Halloween life and I’ve finally had time to do some strategic business planning and dive back into creating blog posts and newsletters for you all. Maybe I’ll miss the hectic event schedule of October in a few weeks, but for now I’m taking the time to breathe deeply and re-center.

Here are some of the highlights from the past seven days - please share yours in the comments below!

Weekend Send-Off: Getting Spooky

I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge Halloween fanatic. In recent years, however, I’ve fallen off the wagon of making epic costumes. Some highlights from my glory days: going as a shrimp tempura roll, a toaster (very impractical for dancing), and Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle.

But this year is a return to form! After months of ebay searching I finally found the perfect dress for my Beetlejuice-themed costume. I’m going as Lydia Deetz in the wedding scene, heinous 80s red dress and all. It feels wonderful playing with costumes again. There’s something so magical about the outer and inner transformations that happen when we change our appearance.

Weekend Send-Off: Where Have I Been?

Well, my peaches, I’m sorry for the unexplained Weekned Send-Off hiatus. Things have been wild around here. Lots of fall transitions and life changes, the biggest being that I got married several weeks ago to my wonderful partner of three years. We had our ceremony at the house (I still have the paper lanterns hanging in my studio) and have been basking in the glow of being newlyweds and the best season of all: fall.

Weekend Send-Off: Mysterious Creatures

This week has been a beautiful and strange one over here in Durham. Sometimes the air feels heavy with magic and wonder, and this has definitely been one of those times. Despite being a busy bee, I've been able to squeeze in plenty of time for individual tarot exploration and even came home from the library with a fresh haul of books. 

Below are a few of the things that have brought me joy this week (please share yours in the comments!), concluded with a special tarot draw to inspire our weekends.
