The Shaking Bed
Date: 2009-07-30   By: Llewellyn
My maternal grandfather enjoyed playing the guitar and the mandolin. As his family grew, he built them a larger home with his own two hands. He was always a self-reliant, independent sort.

There are two variations of this charm, both using two, 1 ó 3-inch glass slides (like those you put under a microscope). The first uses a hinged memory frame to hold the two slides together. The second employs specialty metal craft tape and wire. Either way, you will need:Four glass slides (I say four because the slides can easily break if you
The Historical Tarot
Date: 2009-08-19   By: Llewellyn
We tend to think of the tarot as a timeless icon, passed down to us unaltered through the ages, but historical research shows us that the tarot is fluid, changing with time as human culture changes. We may think of the Fool as a young traveler, fresh-faced, carefree, a friendly dog springing alongside. But early cards show a Fool who is sometimes
