This is a brief update to announce when The Textured Tarot is to be available for pre-order. It’s turning out to be quite an eventful journey! For reasons I am not aware of, this deck does not want to be advertised yet. Perhaps it’s ‘Mercury Retrograde’? I dunno….Yet, despite my and my printers best efforts, the test deck has not been able to get to me safely. Six postal disappointments on and I am simply surrendering to this madness!
I have made an executive decision that The Textured Tarot will be available for preorder in my Etsy store from Monday 16th April. It will remain on pre-order for up to 8 weeks. I will print as soon as I have enough orders. This allows time for me to iron out the weird creases! I am no longer in the headspace to feel open and joyful about my launch; too many things going wrong. So, I am going to step back, take a deep breath and establish patience.
If you have signed onto my Newsletter or product update lists, then I will contact you soon with more details and a discount coupon. Thank you for your support and patience. What a ride this tarot adventure is!!!
Sending this deck, you and the project as a whole so much love and healing and a safe journey to you on its next attempt.
I understand when there are set backs it can make a situation feel hexed, jinxed. When you are deeply connected to every part of the process, its a natural reaction. Would it feel softer to file this under divine timing? That some part of it needed some more time before it was ready to become, to join the world.
This is happening to me too on a project close to my heart. The first delays hurt, but gave me more pondering time, the more recent ones, make my heart ache, but I know in time this thing will happen. My word for the year is Allow. I just have to learn to allow things to take the time they need to appear.
What is meant for you will not pass you by and all that?
Peace, love, light and gratitude for all you create and share
Thank you for your kindness and supportive words xxx
Have you ever seen Simon from Hermits Cave over on You Tube? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3Mzsfac3Ys3AMZ8kVY1mWA I wonder if he would be a good person to contact if you wanted someone to get your deck noticed? I would also recommend Avalon Cameron also on You Tube but she is in Australia.
Don’t worry I don’t expect you to publish this comment, I just kept thinking of Simon and your deck in the same headspace.
peace n light
May I just ask what happens to payments on a pre order? Are they charged immediately or when they are shipped?
Great question. I am running it through Etsy. I think they will take money immediately, but I will explore the option to see if they handle it differently for preorders. I have thought of seven weeks as an estimate to allow plenty of time to put first order in to printers once I have at least 50 orders x
Thank you. I will take a look when back from my holiday xxx
Thank you so much for your replies. Hope you have a lovely time on holiday.
sending you peace, love n light 🙂
