I once read that sacred journeys are a symbiotic experience and the one which involves an Artist is a deeply soulful one, for it is this type of journey in which the art guides life, where art is another form of teacher, and in which life inspires the art on a soulful path of vision. Here you will find such a path... join with me and deepen into your artist!
Based on The Twelve Days of Christmas, The Nightmare Before Christmas characters by Tim Burton and illustrations from Disneyland's Haunted Mansion Holiday Attraction. Not licensed by Disney.
As the legend goes... Halloween had passed and Jack the Skeleton King had a brilliant idea! "This year, the inhabitants of Halloween Town will Do Christmas," he exclaimed, and he, himself, would be Santy Claws.
I created this fun and vibrantly shaded card deck in rich colors. Each card is hand-painted using acrylic paints.
My Sally's 13 Nightmares before Christmas Cards have been a labor of love and inspiration from the sources listed above, and though they might be considered a novelty gift and collector's items by many, I would like to express that the deck took on a life all it's own, and by the end of painting them, wouldn't you know it, but Sally whispered to me that her nightmares CAN be used as omens in your own life. She proceeded to tell me exactly how, which I share with you in the 8 page booklet that contains interpretations for each card, as well as her suggested layout. Oh, also, the booklet contains the 13 Nightmares Before Christmas lyrics that can obviously be sung to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas! What joy!
- Use Sally's suggested layout! It's quite simple.
- Use the instructions to do readings for yourself and others using your own layout.
- Reveal the important characters, conflicts and resolutions on your unique life situations.

Accept that there will be times of struggle in your life that range from emotional to mental to physical to spiritual. They are opportunities for growth in the area dominating the struggle. Grow.
We must accept times of struggle in our lives. I see those times, those challenging struggles as an opportunity for growth.
Rather than blame others, we must seek to accept our side of accountability. What did we do or not do -- this includes the choice we may have made that triggered a challenging situation causing us to struggle through it.
The hands of prayer, which are different people, remind us that grace is needed, cooperation and to never forget there is someone willing to support us through times of difficulty.
The red thread circles both wrists and to those of us in the red thread circle, we fully understand what this means. For those who don't know the red thread, I invite you to learn more: click here.
Two other important symbols are found in this card. The butterfly and the trumpet or tuba or french horn, however you see the instrument.
The butterfly is a message of change. "And this too shall pass," is the mantra I chant when I find myself in situations of struggle.
The horn instrument to me represents the "clarion call" -- the wake-up and pay attention factor. I believe we always receive a clarion call prior to making a choice that will cause a challenge in our lives; it's just whether or not we acknowledge it and perhaps make a better decision that matters.
Regardless, be accountable for your decisions. Take responsibility for your actions. You are 50% at cause for any and everything that happens in your life.
May you heed the clarion call.
I'm dedicating my creative practice to touch and change in 2022. As I go on this journey of transformation, I'll share a "Before" photo of what the old painting, the transformation process and then of course an "After" photo of the Changed Painting.
Below in the next section are short videos sharing the transformation of each canvas. Enjoy.
Here is a 3 minute video sharing with you the transformational process of Canvas 7 ~ "Flower Quilt" which was the transformation of the old canvas "Priestess of the Moon". I enjoyed creating a second quilt painting and actually have a little collection planned out. Began August 26 and finished September 17, 2022.
Here is a 3 minute video sharing with you the transformational process of Canvas 6 ~ "Autumn Quilt" which was the transformation of the old canvas "Queen of Muses". I am so excited about this quilt and plan to continue this journey with another. Began August 5 and finished August 25, 2022.
Here is a 2+ minute video sharing with you the transformational process of Canvas 5 ~ "She Holds the Moon" into "Holds Us in the palm of Her hand." This one took longer than expected. Began May 17 and finished today, August 2, 2022.
