Red-Eyed Monster...

I have been hard at work finishing up projects for Faerie Con. Lots of surprises and goodies will be at this show! It's coming up in a week and some change and is just around the corner. The backgrounds are almost all done and I'm trying to gather together some material for an up-coming newsletter and finish some designs for a magazine. CLICK HERE to go to Cynthia's blog to check out the latest Oracle Card, "Obstacles." Lots of work. So much so that I've been pulling quite a few all-nighters.

Once upon a time, I could go without sleep for days. Times have changed though and the toll is being taken out on my body. This morning, as the sun rose, I looked in the mirror and saw a frightening sight! A stubbly, greasy, unkempt version of myself with glowing red eyes. I'm not exaggerating about the color of my eyes. Azalea woke up not long after that and said, "Andrew, what's wrong with your eyes? They're scary. Are you sick?"

After finishing up a few smaller projects, I finally laid down to take a nap. Frick, the big blonde cat curled up with me and I fell into a deep sleep. I am much more rested and groomed now and am eagerly awaiting the completion of many of the works in progress.

If you can make it out to the convention, you should definitely stop by! It should be tons of fun and we'll have tons of things that will be made just for the show.

now if you get an obstacle card upside down, is that a positive thing? just wodnering.

I ultimately think that all cards become assigned personal meanings. So if you feel that this is what this card really symbolizes... then that's what it means. Trust your intuition.

I also want to note that not all cards, when drawn reversed mean the opposite. In some cases, it just compounds the meaning even more. Same goes for joy, as much as obstacles.
