For quite some time now I have been wanting to create an altered book of spells and rituals. I have also wanted to do one on the properties of gemstones and herbs. And, I have been wanting to do a tarot deck for what seems like forever.
I have scraps of paper everywhere with notes and ideas, all just waiting for the perfect old book to come along to be altered. I love the idea of a large voluminous book holding secrets and possibilities. But I just have not been able to find the book that fits my vision so I have given up. Instead I have decided to do a journal of sorts combing all of the projects in one place. I think I am going to make it a loose leaf binder so I can add or subtract pages and "chapters" as the mood strikes me.
I started with a tarot page based on the Queen of Pentacles. With the economy being on every ones mind these days I guess starting with the Queen of Pentacles was only right. After all, money, success, and wealth in all things important are what we all hope for.
