Progress this month
What I've done this month:
I uploaded the deck to an online printer and got the prototype back (see above) -- yay! The quality of the cards is very good, but some of the colors are washed out and/or patchy -- so I'm working on redoing those images and re-uploading them
I uploaded about half of the LWB to the same printer; but I'm adding some content (expanding the card meaning section) so it's taking longer than I thought it would
What I'd like to do:
Figure out how to add images to the box design
Start making lists of people/businesses to reach out to, for potential sales! (and opportunities to face some more fears!)
What I've learned:
I went on vacation to see my family on the East Coast a few weeks ago. It was a great trip and, because it had been several years since I'd been back, a great opportunity to revisit my child-self and my adult-self in the same space!
My inner critical voices are alive and well and just waiting for any opportunity to try to take me down :( And they've become so subtle, I don't realize they've stopped my progress until several days have gone by without me looking at the deck
The women from my Creative Alchemy course are still amazing!! So positive and supportive, I feel very uplifted after Zooming with them last week
I'm still hesitant to call myself a "tarot deck designer" ... what am I waiting for?
Morning pages are still my go-to therapeutic tool for figuring out what's going on inside my body and mind
I'm in a pattern of being stopped by relatively small obstacles -- but I keep returning, and I'm proud of that
I can call myself a tarot deck designer right now -- I don't have to wait to hit a certain number of likes or a certain sales figure :)
