It's the coolest feeling in the world when you get that finished product in your hands! FedEx pulled up in my driveway this morning and I ran out to greet the dude because I knew that my wonderful editor Becky Zins was sending a couple of the finished kits. I'm a dork, but I can't help it, I was really excited!
Oh My Goddess Bast!! She sent two kits AND some book flats! Book flats are the book covers from the printer before it gets folded and glued to the book. I love to frame them when I can get my hands on these and hang them up in my studio.
Of course Willow the cat jumped right up and planted her kitty butt right in the middle of everything, like she does...always. I think she approves. Willow the cat appears on two cards, once on the "Floating Cat" the Mystical Cats version of the "Hanged Man." I got the inspiration to use her for this card after she ate some poison lillies and ended up at the vets office overnight probably tripping her little kitty butt off. She bounced back fine, more on that story here. She also appears on the two of sea with my Llewellyn art department rock star and head of the art department Lynne Menturwecks cat. So Willow is quite proud of herself.
|Here are the sides of the box, watch for this in bookstores everywhere this May!|

In the mean time I just want to put an entire kit on a necklace and wear it everywhere I go, is that so wrong?!
I was thinking all this excitement, purrrhaps I should do a giveaway, maybe a deck, tarot bag, autographed book flat, couple other fancies, what do you think?
