Oh. My. Glob. This. Deck. I don’t think I’ve experienced #decklust or deck FOMO this hard since…I don’t know when, to be perfectly honest. I had seen so many gorgeous photos of this “sassy burrito” deck and I just knew I had to have it. When I felt like I couldn’t take it any longer, I went to order it but it was sold out! Major sad face. But then Jess posted about it and I knew that I had to keep trying so that I could finally get my hands on this lovely. To my delight, it was back in stock (forever, I hope!) at Stasia Burrington’s shop. Of course I ordered it immediately and of course I reveled in the gold edged, silky smooth, magical cards. Let’s take a look at what’s in store with our budding new friendship.
This little deck has gone through quite a bit on its journey! I was still fairly new to the whole Kickstarter thing. In fact, this was the first Kickstarter I had ever backed! A little over a year later and Ginnie Jester‘s creation is finally here! Let’s see how well we’ll work together, shall we?
I recently got this lil baby in the mail and omg the art is even more beautiful in person! I love it!! But because I love the artwork so much, I’m sad to say that the orange borders are kind of a buzzkill with this one. Dare I say it, will this be the first ever deck I attempt at modifying? I’m hesitant to take a paper cutter / scissors / Xacto / sharp object to these babies but that pop of orange has got to go.
Orange borders aside, here’s the interview I promised in my Favorite Decks for Fall post. Enjoy!
Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you’re having a great one so far! I’ve been buzzing around running errands but I wanted to spend some quality time with my beautiful new deck before the day got away from me!
Because I missed the Kickstarter fun on this deck by *this much*, I got in on the second round of Lana Zellner‘s 78 Cards! Honestly, I forget how this deck even popped up in my feed but I’m so glad it did! It was either Insta, Tumblr, Facebook or any of the amazing writers mentioning they had a part in the book. I mean, seriously, how amazing is this lineup: Kelly-Anne Maddox writing the Majors (WHAAT!), Ethony Dawn writing the Swords (!!!), Sebastian Akesson writing the Cups (ZOMG!!), Christy Talbot writing the Wands, and Lana herself writing the Pentacles! Love it! The artwork is crazy beautiful, especially since I love love love tattoo art!
For now, I only have the deck but the book will be ordered soon. Until then, let’s see how my Tarot knowledge handles these beauties!
