A Happy Tarot Christmas to ALL!

Tis the season for holiday greetings, and now there's a whole tarot deck based on Christmas Greetings! All very Victorian for you viewing pleasure. This is another great deck from the mind of Corrine Kenner. Enjoy!

I love the old style illustrations, and in keeping with the Christmas Craft tradition, you can download the deck and print it yourself! There's even a guidebook available. What a wonderful way to spend some Christmas cash. :)

Getting My Feet Wet

I'm working on getting my feet wet in scratchboard and watercolor, so I thought it would be a good idea to reactivate my account at and search around for some tutorials. When I looked at their index, scratchboard wasn't even on the list, PLUS it takes FOREVER for each page to load. It is a very slow server on their system. I guess we're supposed to be busy working on art while each page is loading. I like to keep my computer and my studio in seperate rooms, so that means running up and down the stairs for me. Not fun.

At least there is a thread where people are posting their work, and it's incredibly realistic too. I'm working on a sketch for a 9x12 board, and I've done the b&w part of two 5x7 boards already. I still have to scan them in as the black & white versions, and then finish them off with watercolors. Once that is done I'll be ready to start posting stuff. I think I need some more tools for scratching, I just have the one for now. I really do love learning new techniques!

Last Chance Holiday Shopping

This will be your last chance to buy gifts from the Cafe Press store because I will be shutting it down after the holiday season. There are all kinds of changes happening at Wyrdhaven Studio in which will involve a complete make-over of the website and all my online merchandise as 2010 draws nigh.
