Amazing Tarot Offer - $1.99 for 10 minutes!

The company I use as my client phone interface has got a GREAT offer that I wanted to share. I just found it today, and I don't know how long it will last, but wanted everyone to have the opportunity to take advantage of it.

A 10 minute tarot reading for ONLY $1.99. That is INCREDIBLE. Usually these are $1.99 a minute (this is less expensive that I usually do them in person!)

The BONUS is that the company is paying me (or whatever tarot or psychic reader you choose) for their time, so it's a wonderful win-win situation! I can do a complete reading (and sometimes 2 or 3 questions) in this amount of time.

I've been using this system since before the littlest pixie was born,and I love it. I find it easy and have never had a problem with them, so I feel confident in telling my FRIENDS about it :)

I may not be on the list of readers at the time, and I'm all good with that, but go ahead and take a look at the offer anyway - It's really a good deal! (and a good time for a tarot reading... Moon is full on Wednesday.)

Blessings to you and yours!

Handmade Project How To: Glittery Christmas Ornaments

So, it's that time of year again! Time to vaccuum off the 30 year old tree, dig out the decorations, and get on my soap box about buying handmade and vintage for Christmas.

One of my favourite things during the tree process is THE SPECIAL BOX. There's a special box in among the decorations filled with things the kids have made. Awkward doily angels, muddy painted ceramics, pen and glued construction paper. It warms my heart to go through that box and remember when the teenager was tiny with pudgy fingers, proudly presenting me with the gifts. The Pixies are JUST past their pudgy-phase, at ages 7 and 8...

Part of the festivities will be to decorate some new ones to go with the long-loved.

You don't have to be an artist to create and enjoy handmade. Here's a simple little project:

You need:
*Tubes of glitter glue
*tiny little "rhinestones"
*new or preferably second-hand-rescued Christmas ball ornaments

find something to hang the ball ornament on. I took a pile of mugs off of a mug tree, and hung my ornaments on it to work on.
Dot the glitter glue on in, and place a little rhinestone jewel in the center. Gently press it in the glue. Don't worry if the glue seems to come up and around the jewel - the glue will dry clear.


This little project brings some extra sparkle to your tree, and is an easy activity to do with the kidlets. It's also an excellent way to save left-for-thrift-stores Christmas ornaments, and a cool project to resell at craft sales or Christmas bazaars.

Because I like Options... A New Webstore.

I've been looking at ProStores - an eBay Company to open a new webstore. The rates seem very reasonable (and are write off's anyway) plus, I have a month to try it free.

I have my etsy shop for my handmade goodies... and that's awesome. But, I can't put new retail type items on there. I"m talking about "buy it wholesale and resell it" type items. When it comes to vintage and handmade, I'm good with etsy. However, I have a whole slew of items that I can't list on etsy... hence, ProStores.

Yes, it's an eBay company. And you can integrate your store with the occasional auction. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. It's easy. It's reasonable. It's user friendly... and I can use it to sell the other items I get wholesale.

Take a peek.. tell me what you think...


Yay for Lazy Saturday

I am in love with this Saturday. Everything about it has been delicious. Including the piggies in a blanket for lunch. And the jumping and giggling on the bed with the pixies. The tea delivery at 11:30 ( I cannot believe my inner alarm didn't have me up and out before that!)

My Sweetheart and I had the same dream last night (practically.) which I find VERY interesting.

It's nearly 3pm.. and I still dont' know what the day brings. Except maybe another Piggie. I'm still in smelly jammie pants. I love enjoying this lazy.

Time Stands Still

It's 9:18am as I write this... and the day already is gorgeous. I opened the door blinds this morning, and the sun is bouncing off my glasses on the inside, causing me to see my cheeks reflected back at me. The pixies are in a clean corner of the basement playing with Barbies and Horses ( i know this, because pixie-the-elder is making alot of horse noises.)

I woke late this morning. It feels like it's been a long long time since I've been able to not set the alarm. I woke at 8:30... it felt glorious to sleep in. (Although it made the Big Tall Boy late for school... as he either doesn't set his own alarm, or it truly is set so quietly that he doesn't hear it. I believe he probably turns it off and rolls over.)

When I stumbled down the stairs, my honeys digital voice recorder was sat on my notebook at my computer. It made me blush a little. How sweet! How kind! Like a wishing fairy showed up while I slept to deliver it. The only way it could have surprised me more is if I were to have found it under my pillow... Mind you, if he had left it there, I probably would have lost it in the sheets.

I've been Sleeping-Messy lately. (You gotta say it like "Sleeping Beauty"..) I've been having vivid crazy dreams this week, and must be dancing horizontal all over the bed.

Last night was surely weird. First, last night was a quiet one. I ended up in the tub for an hour, thinking about life. My earliest memories, and how I should write them down, which morphed into a book I really want to write for my children, because i've been feeling my own mortality lately. And incase my fragile body gives out before they get too much older, I want them to know me.

I know I'll probably live forever... I'll be old old old and won't remember my name, and will probably float around in my earliest memories anyway... but, last night had wierd vibes and energy all over the place, and I felt compelled.

Life is so good, sometimes I think I'm dreaming it.
Life is so good, I wonder if this is heaven.
Life is so good, it feels like time is standing still.....

Revving the cards. Come for a Reading.

Purging the Cluttered House is Healing

Get a kick at me leaning over sideways (in the mirrors reflection) to take a sideways pic... yeah, that's exactly how I play Nintendo, too... with the controller all over the place.. because you ALL know it helps Mario jump and run faster... and yes.. I totally said Ninteno.. SUPER Nintendo, that is..

If you need a dresser, this one has to go... I've loved it a long long time, but I need to make room for a standing wardrobe. It would look super "chic" if painted white!

I've been in the basement for four hours today. My body is exhausted. There are 5 garbage bags of toys to go to the Thrift Store (all perfectly good, but completely unplayed with and grown out of for a LONG time.) Plus, three bags that are just GARBAGE. I've been making a list of all the stuff that just HAS TO go to the dump. Broken unsalvagable toys, old old furniture that was probably salvaged in the first place... It will feel so good to have the basement back for the kids to use as a play room again!!

This has taken some will power. I'm the sort of person who has to TOUCH and CONSIDER every dang thing before letting it go. (it's been a problem in the past!) But I've made great head way today. And the basement looks so much better already. The fact that the good stuff is going to go to a thrift shop and be enjoyed by other little kids, or to help a family who needs it, makes it much much easier.


If you are local, I've got daytime tarot bookings available - for one or a few! For those of you who are long distance, and looking for the FREE tarot reading offer, please see the blog below...

Have a blessed wonderful day! Find some bliss - It's all around us :)

FREE Tarot Readings! My 100th Blog post!!

Wow, twice in one day!

I've been cleaning up my tarot site, before I do a big push on it. Keen (one of the two sites I have my own businesses set up on.) are giving away one FREE Tarot Reading to new users. I've used this system for over 7 years, and never had a problem with it, EVER! So, if you're interested, even if I'm not on, go and find a reader that you can connect with! Freebies are GOOD!

It's my 100th blog post! That is pretty dang cool! I can't stop using exclaimation marks!


The times they are a changin', and life is still good. I don't mind that our world might be stirred up a bit - I have faith that the Universe is looking out for us, and quite frankly, I'm sort of excited for the changes (which are still in talks, so I can't really say anything more!) But, I can feel the energy around me. There's been a surge in interest for Watkins, and the tarot readings, and I've been painting, and it feels GOOD.

The power of positive thinking works.

Now, go get a FREE Tarot Reading

Hair Chopping and Sick Pixies.

So, I chopped off a pile of hair, to attempt a side bang. Now, none of the photos I took were particularly flattering this morning (because, well, IT'S MORNING. and I'm still in my "lazy" sweater.)

I"m going to have to spend some time with styling tools and gunk (which, as you might know, I am not exactly proficient with) but the blunt-Bettie-bangs were making me crazy. And now that the play is over, I could mess with it.

There'll be more pics later. When I've consumed more tea. And find a more flattering lighting, angle, and maybe have a bit of make up on. hehehe.

Last night was spent on the couch with my sweetie, and then at the computer doing some Watkins work (sweet heart went back to work at 9:30 at night, so I figured I would do the same. You know, before the hair cutting happened.)

This morning I'm home with both of the pixies, coughing and full of delicious sounds. (I wished for a skip off day with them yesterday in my facebook notes.. I should be more careful and specific about my wishes. Like "Can they be healthy AND have a skip off day with me.) and I have to wonder... I've been home with one or the other of them twice a week for the last 3 weeks... Would a traditional employer have fired me by now? Would I have gotten written up? Some sort of hand slapping, because I am home nurse-maiding my children?

Yeah. I like it here. We might live on a little less.. but we have all the time in the world for each other. And in the end, it's these moments that will matter.

Have a wonderful week!

Monkey up the Works.

It's been over a month since I've been here. OVER A MONTH! Why, you ask? Because of a play.

I was asked to fill in for an actress in the current Huronia Players production. So, I got the script in hand three weeks before the production went on.. I've been doing nothing but memorizing lines ever since!

We've been on for two weeks now. Tonight marks the third week of the run, and also the last week.

I know my lines well enough to actually DO something during the day now, besides have my nose in the script. It's really thrown a wrench into things, though. All the things I wanted to make for my etsy store before now...

Today I broke out the jewellery boxes I had started over a month ago for the girls' Yule prezzie. Then I broke open a pack of 3 canvasses... and put backrounds on ALL of them. Without totally knowing what is going to be the focus of each piece. It just felt so good to be smearing paint.

I currently have two pieces down at Inner Bliss on Midland Ave, although I think I'll be collecting them to, and replacing them with these new pieces (which I'm aiming to have done tomorrow.)

The others will be listed on my etsy shop (Vintage Witch)

I spent some time listing some of my etsy items on kijiji today.. including the stuffed pillow monkeys...

I'm babbling. I had a nap this afternoon. It monkeys up the works.
