I haven't written in my blog for quite some time, but I do have some great news!
For the past 6 months I have been working on a Duality Deck - my personal take on an Oracle deck that will have my images on the cards and the booklet of meanings. The main purpose of this Deck is to bring peace into your thoughts and feelings when it comes to areas of your life that you are currently not so happy about. It can also be used as a message for the day where the meanings of the cards could suggest what to focus on throughout the day.
I called it Duality to reflect the dual way of looking at our life and events in it. There is a straight forward logical way - where all we can see is linear events, who did what and why this and that happened; and yet there's another way of looking at things, the "not so straight forward way", where causes and effects as well as answers are found mostly within oneself. The meanings of the cards resonate with the second way, and whilst you are invited to bring to the table the upsets and issues of everyday life you are also presented with a suggestion to look at them differently through the meanings of the cards that you pick.

I am trying to raise funds for publishing this deck via kickstarter. And I'm also happy to give sample one card reading to anyone who is interested in it - just send me a message through my facebook page
If anyone has any questions about my deck, I'll be happy to answer them.

Yuri the meerkat - WIP

If you think that bears walk in the streets of Moscow, you are very much in the wrong, at least not for the last couple of years - they don't. And I won't surprise you if I said that it's actually meerkats that are overpopulating Russia these days. Originally from South Africa, this small animal migrated to Russia and adopted well to the way of life and cold winters and what's more - scared away a...ll the bears... And they speak English quite well, as you would have expected of them. Russian meerkats fascination being a new fad I had to jump on the bandwagon and here I present you Yuri the meerkat. In the beginning he was meant to be a tractor driver for some remote Kolkhoz, but he looks too dressed up and a bit tipsy, so I'd say he is a party animal, probably plays accordion....

The original is available in my Etsy shop, cards, t-shirts, mugs etc - in my Zazzle shop
