Crazy Sexy Love Notes

The newest deck for my collection arrived this morning! After the disappointing experience with The Rainbow Oracle I wanted a beautiful oracle card deck that was uplifting, colourful, and filled with love (and with correct spelling this time). I'd seen this one being used around Instagram and popped it onto my wish list. Sadly my local crystal and tarot shop will no longer be getting any business from me due to the extreme mark ups in prices so all my shopping will be done online from now on directly from the supplier where possible. 

This deck is just what I hoped for! It's vibrant, juicy and just right. The cardstock is nice and thick, too. And I do love a matte finish. I'm excited to do a read with it; prepare to be inspired, self! Ha. The absolute perfect companion to use with my Leonie Dawson 2016 Shining Year workbooks. Woohoo! 

Only a little hooking to report this week. I've just been so busy with the kids and life in general that I haven't had a lot of spare time for crochet. That, and my wrist has been hating on me a bit lately. These little guys aren't finished yet as you can see, but I needed an excuse to use my lightbox again. Oh yeah! I DIY'd a lightbox. It doesn't look pretty but it freaking works like a dream!! THANK YOU Youtube instructions :p I tore the tissue paper by accident while trying to construct it so storing it with two little people around will be a challenge. Good thing they're so easy so if the worst does happen I can just make another. You know, with all my spare time *snort* 

 I wasn't planning on reading for myself for some time, I've been struggling to be honest. But as I walked past my craft room this morning I felt drawn to my RWS deck. I picked it up and suddenly felt my spirits lift. I pulled a card for 'beginning', 'middle', and 'end' for today and WOAH. All majors! I don't think we're dealing with the day to day here. This little spread washed away the doubts and reaffirmed my place in this spiritual journey that I'm on. The placement hints that I may have The Wheel of Fortune and The Hermit in the wrong positions, as it stands we have an 8, 10, and a 9. I've chosen to leave it though, it came to me this way for a reason. Justice is my birth card, so right away I see myself. I am reminded to trust my judgement and sense of fairness. It tells me that my outer self has reached a place where my needs and goals are being met, but my inner self is now in need of balancing. The Wheel of Fortune is a huge flashing neon sign saying 'NOW IS THE TIME!'. Everything is in my favour, the stars are aligned, and the time is right to begin working on these positive changes, and the perfect time to work on finding myself. The Hermit represents the completion of the first half of the journey. Intuition and wisdom can be found by finding time to be alone and to meditate. It's time to let go of preconceived fixed ideas that are holding me back from moving on. I've been putting off allocating the time to truly be alone with my thoughts because I rarely get through it without interruption but perhaps it's time that I try again.

I took one more card out of the deck as a confirmation card and guess what it was? The Empress! The card of plenty, motherhood, perfect home life, comfort, balance, love and nurturing.

Well now I feel like the Universe really does have my best interests at heart! Xx  

How I got back in control of my anxiety

Has anyone else found the past week or so especially more stressful and difficult emotionally and stress-level wise than normal? I certainly...
