My whole life, people have likened me to Leonardo Da Vinci because I've never been able to pick a single focus. I love art and science, and just about everything involved within those designations. I especially love where the venn diagram of the two fields overlap. I have a BS in Zoology and an MFA in visual development for video games. I'm currently a professional artist, but learning to become a software engineer. I can't even pick a single art form to focus on. 2D, 3D, digital, traditional, drawing, painting, photography, etc... ANYway, my boss was in Gettysburg about 6 months ago and bought herself a tarot deck, but soon found out you're not supposed to buy your own deck, it's supposed to be gifted to you, preferably by a matron-like figure. The next day, without telling anyone about the deck she bought, her step-mother gifted her a deck of her own. Fast forward to October, about a week after I told her I'm a witch, I saw Olivia's video on making a tarot deck bag/mat and decided I need to get some cards so I can make my own. That day, my boss was cleaning her house and found the deck she bought. She immediately decided it needs to belong to me, so she brought it with her to work. Turns out the deck she bought is Da Vinci themed. I know our tools are supposed to present themselves to us when we need them, but WOW! That's a whole string of "coincidences" right there! (I don't believe in coincidence) Oh, and I did end up making my own tarot mat for them! It's not perfect, but it's all hand-stitched, and I made it, so it's totally perfect!
