Mixed Media Inspiration Deck™ Empowerment Edition Blog Hop

I bet I've never mentioned how much I enjoy decks of cards. I don't ever talk about it, but I have an enormous collection, ranging from Tarot decks (I own tons!) to Yoga decks, to a deck by my friend Orly Avineri to these decks by Kiala Givehand. Decks bring great pleasure to me. The cards feel good in my hand, and I truly enjoy the inspiration I gain from each and every deck I own. 
Watch along as I play with Kiala's inspiring cards and get to explore some topics out of my comfort zone.
