Our SECOND Attempt At Video Blogging

Perhaps inspired by all the fun and interesting Tarot Video Blogs that I regularly watch on YouTube, I decided to try it formally on my own.

This is the first of those video blogs, intended to share our enthusiasm at the arrival of printed proofs for our TRICK OR TAROT pack. This happened on a rainy afternoon in 2017. Just typing that date reminds us how quickly time zooms by. Enjoy the video! --Thorn. •
