Tarotpocalypse day 16: breathe in, breathe out.

Here’s my current three Tarot decks, all of which I’ve used in Tarotpocalypse, laid out in the rare Irish sun, surrounded in lovely gemstones - two of my favourite witchy tools! All my altar and Tarot cloths are laid out, too.

The past few days of Tarotpocalypse have seen me working with my brand new Legend of Tarot deck, which probably doesn’t need much of a rest just yet!

However, I do, and I’ve always found cleansing things - my cards, my house, anything - makes me feel lighter, too.

Yesterday was No Shame Day, a selfie visibility day for people with disabilities and, as someone who NEVER talks about their disability and related problems, I’m feeling pretty drained now. Opening up can be hard! So I’m definitely in need of a little care today - hence the pot of lovely cream, to treat my extra hard working disabled hands that put so much into my Tarot readings. I love you, handies. Thanks.

I think I found home in the spaces between his fingers, he holds my name in his heart like it’s made out of porcelain. I crave his hugs because even if it’s just for a few seconds, I can feel his touch and his arms around me. And I can be intoxicated by his scent. His heart beat is the last thing I want to hear when I go to sleep at night, I want him to make love to my ears and talk about anything he’s passionate about for hours, I’ll gladly listen. His voice has become my new favourite sound. It’s like I found my sweet escape when I’m alone with him, I want to cuddle with him, make him laugh, and make him moan. He’s my object of affection, my drug of choice, and my sick obsession. I want that boy like roses want rain, like a poet that needs pain, and nothing has ever felt sweeter than falling for him. -Written by Ashley MacLean. April 13, 2015

Falling Skies 30 Day Challenge

Day 1 - Favourite Episode: Strange Brew

It was hard to pick a favourite but I really liked Strange Brew because of how different it was to anything Falling Skies had done before.

THE MAGIC BEGINS - A Harry Potter Challenge ϟ 9/30 ϟ A CHARACTER YOU FEEL THE NEED TO DEFEND: Percy Weasley

“What about Percy?” asked Harry; the third-eldest Weasley brother had fallen out with the rest of the family. “Is he talking to your mum and dad again?”

“Nope,” said Ron.

“But he knows your dad was right all along now about Voldemort being back–”

“Dumbledore says people find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.”

“Clean yourself off. Get dressed.”

When I say I draw Irish dancers a lot I’m not kidding. They’re my number one favourite thing to draw.

I draw them mostly because of the interesting movement, poses and dresses. But I also draw them because when I was young I was constantly disappointed artistic depictions of Irish dancers.  For starters there were so few drawings of Irish dancers to be found. Secondly, the ones that I could find were always wildly inaccurate. Many were about ten years out of date with big old panel dresses, and no wigs. Others were just completely inspired by Riverdance and really didn’t look anything like the Irish dancing I knew. And then there was the leprechauns. So. Many. Leprechauns!! 

I also found a  problem with all dancers always being represented as ballerinas. I distinctly remember going to the vendors at a feis only to find bags, shirts, shorts, jewellery boxes, anything really, with ballerinas on it. At a FEIS!

So I’ve kind of made it my mission to draw accurate modern Irish dancers.
