Tubular Pillow

August 12, 2017     Like This Post!

Two weeks ago, my parents popped over for a visit. My dad, before they left, told me he wanted a thin long pillow for his neck. I’ve made him one before, but my younger brother took it and claimed it as his. Since then, all the men in my family praised how much they loved the thin tube pillow for their necks. Maybe it’s a guy thing, I don’t know. But my dad wanted another one.

Pillows are a fast fix for me, so it wasn’t a problem.

Tarot To-Go // August 7 – August 13

Tomorrow, August 7th, we have a Full Moon — and in some parts of the world, a lunar eclipse — in the fixed air sign of Aquarius at 11:11AM PST. There have been a lot of powerful energies buzzing around lately and a lot of us probably felt really on edge because of it. Fear not — everything is coming together.

Let’s see what the cards say.

As I’ve mentioned before, tarot is an intuitive art and the techniques and methods will vary from reader to reader. Whenever two cards are pulled simultaneously, I read them as one card. This happened a couple of times for this week’s spread!

Rag Rug DIY

August 4, 2017     Like This Post!

I have a lot of fabric scraps and not enough projects to use them for. While Googling some random craft projects, this rag rug project popped out at me and I thought to make a small one for myself. ~ Anything to use these fabric scraps ~ I looked up ways to make this rug and I came to realize it wasn’t so hard. Like it was actually pretty super easy. Just time consuming, that’s all.

I bought a decently big size non-slip rug mat, the kind that you put under rugs to prevent slipping. Because of the small squares, it makes for a good base to tie fabric strips through each square, or every other square. Since it was big, I cut it to the size that I wanted. It came out to a random size – about 22 inches X 17 inches.

It has been a crazy couple of weeks for me and the energy in the skies and on my tarot decks have been matching, to boot. We are kicking it back into gear here at Tarot To-Go for the month of August as we revel in that firey energy that we were filled with during that New Moon in Leo a few days ago. Today, to ease us back into the flow of things, I have picked one card from my Mermaid deck to focus on.

And here she is.

Life In The Fast Lane

This year has been encouraging in the way of following through with goals and being active to change for the better. Change is good, especially when you have nothing to lose and so much to gain.

One big goal I gave myself this year was to work out. I know, that’s everyone’s resolution every year – to get fit. But I was set on making it happen at some point. I’m just not a gym person; I can’t just ~go~ to the gym. I figured my kind of workout is in class form. So I signed up for kickboxing. It sure has been kicking my ass though. Bruises, soreness, etc. everything. So far I’ve done 6 classes – two a week, and I hope to keep consistent. My initial goal this year was to specifically sign up for dance classes, especially hip hop, but I figured there’s nothing wrong with doing both, right? I’ll get to that eventually as a side fun workout class. For now I’m trying to keep a consistent schedule with my kickboxing since I gave into a membership.
