You asked about cheap tarot decks.  The absolute cheapest tarot deck you can get is a standard deck of playing cards, like you would use to play poker or hearts or spades.  These decks are simply tarot without the trump card

You may already have one of these in your home.  If  not, I ‘ve seen playing card decks go for as cheap as 50 cents in various dollar stores, so I would check there first.  

Once you’ve acquired a deck of cards, go to these sites:

General Cartomancy

If you want an actual tarot decks, you can print your own for free:

Printable Tarot Decks (Public Domain Art)

Once you’ve decided which deck(s) you want to print, save the printable tarot cards to your computer. Avoid printing directly from the browser as you might end up with some weird and unwanted results (trust me on this).

Print out the tarot cards on your chosen paper. Make sure that you print them in the standard tarot deck size. If you’re not sure that the size is right, do a test print of one card so you don’t destroy the entire paper. If you printed the images on regular paper and want a good backing, then you need to use spray adhesive to glue the paper to the actual cards.

Carefully trim the edges of the cards - some people like rounded edges, so make sure you have enough place for the borders. 

Once the cards are printed, let them dry and then seal them with a varnish spray. After that, run them through a laminator. These days laminators are pretty affordable, and if you find yourself creating lots of tarot decks, you might want to invest in one.  You can also take the files to office supply stores (such as Office Depot in the USA) for printing and laminating.

So this break has been interesting so far. 

What surprised me the most is that the deconversion shadow work stuff is still going on, but it’s helpful.  It hurts but at the same it’s “okay I understand what was going on, why I still have these issues, and how they’ve spilled over into my Kemetic faith.”

So things are going on and self-care is happening.  Not in the form I expected, but I’m making progress.

There was an article that thetwistedrope wrote a while back about making a shrine to yourself, and that might be a good idea for me.  It would…*tries to find words* help me to stay balanced, to remember that I’m my own person and that I matter.  I think that’s what I’m trying to say?  I also have a convenient empty space on my desk, and some candles I’m not using, so maybe this’ll be a thing.



Anubis, by Ashbet.

He’s been a labor of love for the past three years — cobbled together as a custom hybrid of four different dolls (SOOM Ender jackal head, IpleHouse SID body in Light Brown resin, IpleHouse EID Magician Chase beast hands, originally white, IpleHouse EID Shadow Chase beast feet, originally Ebony, with the mismatched parts dyed with RIT, sprayed with Tamiya Flat Enamel, and airbrushed and handpainted to match), and while there were a number of setbacks in his construction, the end result is SO very worth it.

Almost all the credit (for everything other than design/planning/hybridization) goes to FunnyLori, for doing an EPIC job on his customizations — it was a ton of work that had some false starts (the damned sealant on black kept blooming, OMG!), but she stuck with it, and I couldn’t be happier with how he turned out.

I fairly heavily beveled his eyes from the inside, in order to fit him with 16mm goldstone spheres (and to get them to sit far enough forward that they’d catch the light.) I love that he has actual semi-precious stones for eyes — it seems fitting.

He’s mostly based on this 2005 painting, although I’ve been avidly drawing him since I was in second grade, including featuring as a character in my long-running and intermittent “Angel of Death” graphic novel/art project since 1990.

Having him represented in this form has been a dream of mine for literally decades (before I’d ever seen an actual BJD), and I am immensely humbled and grateful to finally have him at home. He and Sekhmet and Bast are all touchstones for me, and I can’t express how overjoyed I am to see this dream realized.

(Other than my hands being torn all to hell from making him a custom S-hook using completely inappropriate tools, when I discovered an issue as I was assembling him last night — still worth it!)

I thought that was a person wearing a mask and stuffs… damn! Hunky Jackal is Hunky!

What a temporary perfection we can find in this passing world. Everything good, ever done, everything good that was done today; and all the good people doing it. And back, and back, and forward, and forward. All that beauty within a universe unraveling.Be proud of your place in the cosmos. It is small, and yet it is. How unlikely! How fantastic! And stupid. And excellent.

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.

favorite things about this

  • literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
  • the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
  • all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
  • that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
