On Tarot: A newbie’s dabbling into card reading

Alright…this is gonna be an interesting one, maybe a little odd, as even I myself never expected me to get into this or even try it.

For whatever reason, I’ve been wanting to dabble a bit into Tarot cards. I’ve always wanted to get a deck for the hell of it, but…for some reason, I wanted to at least try to get into doing readings. From what I’ve found about doing them so far, the process seemed more complex initially; after trying out a self-reading and doing a little research, it doesn’t seem quite as complex, though very stimulating.

Embracing Her Role as Queen by Joshia Warbaum

Been a while since I’ve posted one of these, though that’s mainly due to life taking over what little free time and energy I had for the longest time. In any case, I do hope you guys enjoy the review and, if you do decide to check this book out for yourself or have already read it, let me know what your thoughts are! Continue reading

Positive life changes happening

Hey guys~

Long time, no talk, eh? Apparently I haven’t posted anything on here since the beginning of April…sorry about that. As mentioned in the title, there’s been some positive changes happening in my life recently, but between those and my job becoming hectic these past couple months, I’ve been quite busy (and tired) as of late. Continue reading

April 9, 2018

Basically me mulling over some things and just wanting to get it all out of my system. Feel free to comment or message me about this if you wish, even though I know I’ll sound like a broken record having to explain the same thing over and over and over again to everyone who does. Continue reading

Got myself a new hoodie

Hey guys~

A friend of mine by the name of Houndsytooth (who can be found here on Twitter) had this hoodie on at the Madison furry bowling meet last night. When I saw it, my first thought was, “I need this; why do I not have this yet?”

You can probably guess why 😛

Also, it’s been a while since I’ve used my digital camera to take photos like this. It was also hard for me to find a good spot in my apartment to take them, so bare with me here.

Thoughts on going forward in the fandom

In a way, you could say this is my follow-up post to Fur Squared 2018. All in all, I had a great time at the con and was glad to meet and hang out with a few people I haven’t seen in a while, along with meeting a few new people. To be honest, my main goal for this con was just that.

As much as I would’ve loved to have Sponsored or Super Sponsored this con, things weren’t going great for me, financially, prior to this past weekend. However, after I was hired on to permanent employment status at Emmi Roth (a cheese factory I work at here in town), I gained a better pay rate, benefits, and paid time off; so, in the end, things worked out for me enough that I could at least attend. I believe this makes my second year where I had to register at the door, the first year being…well my very first Fur Squared and furry con back in 2015. Otherwise, I would’ve pre-registered as a Sponsor or Super Sponsor. I feel I’ve been attending this con enough times where I know it’ll be a good con each year, and I want to help it grow.

Thoughts on my newest hybrids, Jackie & Roy

This has been something I’ve been meaning to write about, now that I’ve had my tigoat, Jackie, for a while. I have posted her ref sheet I whipped up and the only two art pieces I have of her on my art gallery sites, as well as Twitter and Tumblr. Continue reading

Woodland Campfire

Woodland Campfire

Forgot to post this one on here; whoops!

Not quite sure about this one, since I didn’t use as many colors as I have used in my previous paintings. Definitely need to work on my highlighting though, I’ll admit. I will the say the fire and glow look pretty good, at least.

Evening Stream

Evening Stream

Another painting I did the other night. I’m surprised how well the waterfall and the surrounding rocks turned out, along with the trees in the background. I also used a black canvas this time, though I should’ve used some darker colors for the grass and rocks to indicate nighttime better, but the brighter colors stand out so well. This is also another one I painted along to a Bob Ross video.
