In other news
Dame Darcy's Mermaid Tarot has been in print and selling since 2012!
 To celebrate the success of this self published venture, I have now reissued a 3rd edition with new and improved borders and production, plus 22 all new illustrations!

With each order will now come individual sea themed and mermaid spells as well as one of a kind die cut stickers.

We pride ourselves on being multicultural and LBGT and this is reflected more than ever in the new images on these cards, because acceptance of diversity is the way things were initially in Atlantis and thanks to the Goddess the Patriarchy is crumbling and things are going back to the right way all along. 

(A note from LED) As I'm writing this we only have 18 left of edition 2! The moment that edition sells out I'll post edition 3 for sale and send you a quick update email to let you know it's been listed! 

The Raffle
I didn't forget about the raffle, and yes we have sold many items valued at $75 and I promise we are keeping your name in the list. But the amount has not yet reached the value of the painting. 
When it does we will announce the raffle winner and send you the painting. 
I promise! Until then yes, please keep 'em coming. And again when you order art of any kind valued at $75 or more on my store you are eligible to win this painting. 

Go Shopping!!

And now a word from LED who is an inspiration and a dream. We work together to run this whole thing and without her none of this would be possible. Laura is a creative force in her own right and an up and coming artist herself :) 

Hello sweet Dame Darcy lovers! I'm so excited to share with you my first completed short animation! It's a 35 second, trippy romp through space with some characters you may recognize from my Tarot in Space! Have a look!
