So, a little while back my sister and I were doing a separate blog. It was Faeries doing a newsletter sort of thing. Well the blog was not where the faeries felt comfortable. It was just not working for us.
We enjoyed our time with the birchwood grove fae. Here lately we have been getting more from the fae. So we started them a newsletter. It goes out every other Tuesday. If you are interested then pop over to my sister’s blog as she has a pop up link to the newsletter.
So I have been considering adjusting this blog. I really need to separate Pattimouse and Serena online. There is also a few others who I am possibly going to be working with in publishing.
So there might be a bit of upheaval as I change the main page to Serenity Studios crafting and publishing. Please be patient with me. I will be providing you with more great posts, and I am considering adding a sales page for handcrafted goods as well.
So I was window shopping on Amazon…. And I am thinking about getting a new tarot / oracle deck… I found these I want. And now I have to come up with ways of earning the money to buy them. Anything you want to suggest? No? Well… I do have a faerie tarot deck. This one… So since I am not good for stealing and not wealthy… I was thinking that I can do readings to earn my decks…. Say $5 per three card reading? Or for a full Celtic cross layout $20? Anyone interested in helping me afford the new decks? I have been reading the cards for over twenty years and am very discreet when I do… Interested parties can PayPal me with the amount, the questions, and the email or place to send the reply.
If I can get a few of the decks I am tempted to do a weekly single card reading much as I was doing on the mindful faeries blog. I have been considering other things to add to this blog to keep it active. Any ideas you want to drop will be considered. I am also going to add some book reviews on here. So keep tuned in…. I may surprise you yet.
I sat down to write this morning and realized that though this has been a rocky year personally…. It was a great year for my writing. I finished and published three volumes of poetry this year and am nearly done with a fourth. I put in play a pen name, Serena Mossgraves. As Serena I released a Novella (The Death of Neverland). I am nearly done with my first novel (Rust, Gore, and the Junkyard Zombie)… Just have to finish the editing, the writing is done. I have done several short stories and worked with two children’s stories. I also started collaboration with my sister on our Spiritual Gardening blog.
Looking it all over, it really does not seem like as much as it is. Still, it is more than I have accomplished before. With the end of the year nigh, I find myself looking back at the things that I wanted for 2017…and thinking ahead to what I want from 2018. I refuse to measure my life in regret, so I do not dwell on the things that went sideways. However, I do look at them and see what I can learn from what I have done. This year, though a personal hot mess, I was able to redirect myself back to my writing. I was able to make it a priority. That is behavior that I plan on continuing.
What about you? Was 2017 a good year? Why? What will be carried over into the new year?
So my Sister Redbird and I are doing a secondary Blog, We attempted this before…but it fell apart due to various factors. So we fixed those and are trying again. It is a blog to discuss ways of improving one’s outlook on life. Faeries, recipes, DIY and more… go check us out.
