Summer Solstice Debut: Sacred Spiral Oracle Cards

At long last: I’m mere weeks away from releasing my first printing of my oracle card deck, Sacred Spiral Oracle. I even created a section for it here on my website. And today, which is the Summer Solstice, I created my listing for pre-orders on Etsy!

This deck has truly been a labor of love and healing. I created the original handmade cards in tribute to two years I devoted to a holistic healing program. I continued to work on them  sporadically for the next three years to bring them to their current form through times of depression, struggle, healing, and recovery.

Summer is a time of great heat and energy. For me, it seems like everything happens at a faster pace, and yet the heat also can feel heavy and draining. It’s also a great time to bring projects into fruition.

September 1st Snapshots

I had the realization that business social media account-wise, I tend to post a lot on Instagram, occasionally on Facebook, sometimes on Pinterest, and rarely here.  My intention is to start blogging more.

I’ve been working hard – prolifically making jewelry, figuring out prices, planning for my next craft show (on September 13!), editing my digitized oracle cards on Photoshop, putting up a few new items on Etsy, and getting ready to go away for Labor Day weekend to visit my love.

So, here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to recently:

Brass Flowers with Lapis Lazuli Leaves Earrings
I found these brass flowers at a local bead shop/art gallery and knew I had to make them into earrings.  Brass Flowers with Lapis Lazuli Leaves Earrings.  Up on Etsy here.
Triangular turquoise in sterling silver

Ways to Make a Wish Card - I see this as a birthday or general encouragement card. It's blank inside. Here on Etsy.

Collage/mixed media piece in progress. I wonder what it will become.
Collage/mixed media piece in progress. I wonder what it will become.  At this point, I know it will have more layers, but I’m not sure beyond that.  There’s something really soothing about creating with glue and paper.
I took this photo early Sunday morning. I woke up because the moon was still so bright, and then decided to get up and take this picture.

I have a weeklong Nia (dance fitness) intensive training starting on July 25.  I’m nervous and excited.   Dance is another one of my creative outlets, and it also is great exercise.  In the meantime, from today through July 23, I’m having a sale on Etsy – 15% off with the coupon code NEWFOLLOW.  I just added a few new items to my shop, too.  www.etsy.com/shop/seekingspiritdesigns.

Also, I’m looking into printing some of my drawings and two-dimensional art pieces to make them into cards and larger prints.  I just ordered one set (for proof purposes) of my oracle cards and should get them next week.  Exciting times!
