The Attic Shoppe Trading Co. offers tarot lovers (and coloring book fans) an opportunity to add their own creative colors to an already naturally beautifully colored deck. Explore here the major arcana for the popular Isidore Tarot deck that are a series of collages using the incredible work of illustrator J.J. Grandville. And once you’ve moved through the tarot itself, you have a variety of Grandville’s original works to lay hue and atmosphere to. This coloring book is from original collages from our shoppe artist Bethalynne Bajema, from the works of J.J. Grandville. We look forward to seeing how others paint these incredible snapshots of this fantastical world! And honestly there is no tarot knowledge or curiosity needed! These are snapshots of wonderful places. Everyone is welcome! Purchase on Amazon.
The Attic Shoppe Trading Co., a fantastical place that offers even more fantastical wares, invites you to take a tour of their Attic world in 80 pages (or more) – coloring book style! Visit places where fairies can be found hiding within the blooms and tea bats sore in the sky above as they balance their tea cups on their heads. Visit a butterfly circus and swim with mermaids. Take a look into hidden corners of the world we’ve seen. And let us introduce you to the most unique of all delivery services thought lost to vintage times. The automaton Bly acts as your host through this brief tour of our Attic world and all the many things we have to offer.

Alright, I’ve finally jumped into the oracle pool feet first. I should have plugged my nose! I think I have purple water on the brain. That aside, I’ve been finishing up on my second oracle deck. It’s expanded a bit, developed a deeper personality and meaning, and its whispers are getting a little louder. That’s how it starts for me typically. This deck is a chatterer. It’s telling me stories about who my oracles are and what I might find them to be. I updated the info on its page found here.
I am very excited to announce our brand new coloring book! An Autumn with Isidore Coloring Book is a combination of the original Isidore collages I created a few years back and The Isidore Tarot’s major arcana cards that came from that collection. These coloring pages have card meanings with them and the Isidore short stories. There’s also a little of this and that creating a book I’m quite pleased with.
For the last two years I’ve offered a free coloring page at conventions which lead to being asked why aren’t you making a coloring book? Which was a good question. So I’ve been working on this one to have something new for the upcoming convention and craft show season. Below are some samples of the coloring pages. The coloring books are currently printing and should be arriving next week, with shipping to follow. The coloring book is 8.5 by 11 in size and 95 pages. It is available for a reasonable and lucky number $13 plus shipping and handling. You can order your coloring book here.
I’ve added some of my better half’s beautiful airship paintings to our print shoppe. I like to stress that with Myke’s work sometimes you can’t fully appreciate just how incredible these paintings are until you get a chance to see them in person. The original versions are huge and done in a classic style with acrylic paints. Typically I lose my gent to them for a week to two as the painting becomes his total focus until they’re done. He starts with a white canvas and gradually brings coloring shading to it. Over this he starts to add his details. This process continues until the final piece has incredible detail down to hidden things in the scenery. The final paintings translate well into any size and the 8 x 10s are an especially nice size to hang more than one airship together. You can see the six prints currently available here.

Today’s product of the day is again from our RedBubble account. Our lovely girl in the moon from our Butterfly Circus Lenormand deck is the featured artwork on this selection of lovely products. Several different versions of our moon girl have been used to customize mugs, clocks, pillows, and apparel. Bethalynne, by special request, did a specialized version of the RedBubble tee shirt dress (pictured below) with our moon girl placed so she can sit atop a baby bump. ;)
Our product of the day is from our Tea Bats Collection. Our extremely entertaining Tips Von Tea has lent his crest to a variety of items that you can give a look at on our RedBubble profile.

I’m getting ready for my holiday sales and Cyber Monday. One of the ways I like to make variations on my decks is to create mini versions. I have one mini version of the Isidore Tarot already, but created this mini version of the Valentine edition of that deck for a friend who is a doll-maker. I’ll have six editions of it available online mid November. I love the tiny decks. I have mock-ups of my Black Ibis Tarot and the Attic Halloween Tarot arriving tomorrow. I can’t wait to see them. :)
Our Butterfly Circus Lenormand deck is done and printing! You can see the entire deck here. We expect to have it available in the next week or so. :)
