Bountiful Blessings and Celebration – Monday Oracle 17 June 2019

“Be the celebrators, celebrate! Already there is too much—the flowers have bloomed, the birds are singing, the sun is there in the sky—celebrate it! You are breathing and you are alive and you have consciousness, celebrate it!”  ~ Osho

Hello, Lovelies!

June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. (And stay tuned, because I have a gorgeous new online course launching tomorrow which will help you capitalise on all of this good energy!) This month you’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Rainbow Dragon brings us.

This is another really beautiful week of spiritual connection. But it’s not that raw intuitive place we were in last week, where you may have felt like all of your senses were in overload. This week’s energies are gentle – and focus on supporting you to be both perceptive and grateful.

You’ll be open and heart-centred and able to truly feel what’s going on from a space of empathy and kindness. It’s a great week for gratitude, for counting your blessings, for celebration. It is absolutely a week for sharing your love and appreciation and affection with the people around you and celebrating all of those things that are good in your life. 

It’s also a week of feeling kinder and more generous toward yourself, and toward those you love.

If your relationship with yourself has been less than stellar you’ll find yourself softening this week, so that you can embrace yourself, forgive yourself, laugh at yourself (kindly of course), accept yourself and love yourself more easily. You’ll also feel more inclined to try things without being so darned judgemental and critical of yourself.

If your relationship with a friend or loved one has been less than great you’ll find that you are able to mend bridges, to let go of hurt, to move on, to try again. It’s a wonderful time for reminiscing and discussing memories of experiences you’ve shared. It’s also a time of creating a new way forward that can work better for both of you so that you can leave the pain and hurt of the past in the past.

Celebrate a little or a lot this week. Because what’s life without celebration?

Supportive crystals this week?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. White Howlite will promote calm, tranquillity, self-acceptance and a feeling of emotional spaciousness. Amber (pictured) supports you to find and live from a place of creativity and joy, opening you to possibility while helping you to stay grounded.

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Rainbow Dragon’, is from the Sacred Power Reading Cards by Anna Stark. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different from the meaning found in a book. 

Monday Oracle – 10 June 2019

“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.
~ C. JoyBell C.

Hello, Lovelies!

June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Exploration brings us.

Exploration is about future vision – that vision you can create for yourself of the life you want to have, the life that inspires or nurtures or fulfills you better than the life you are living right now. It’s about the spirit of possibility and of experiencing life rather than simply existing, of growing and realising more of your potential, of changing in ways that engage, please and satisfy you.

This week put aside your sense of practicality, your self-doubt, and that part of you that shuts down ideas and new directions before you’ve even begun. Let yourself dream a bit. Got dreams already that you’ve put in a box and forgotten or that you’ve ignored? Exploration urges you not to give up on them just yet!

Transformation often starts by seeing possibilities for yourself in whatever area of your life you’d like to change. Possibilities are fueled by research. How can you know what you want and follow that path if you don’t know what’s available? This week is a great week to find out more about the things that have been engaging your curiosity or that have popped into your awareness unbidden.

Exploration is also saying: ‘Do I need a guide? Do I need someone to guide me in whatever area of my life I’m looking for that growth and change?’

Sometimes the thing that grows us is finding a guide, a coach, a mentor. You might need a course, or to join a group of like-minded people who are focused on the same interest as you.

And for a few of you? The Universe has a clear message. YOU ARE THE GUIDE. What are you waiting for? There is someone out there who needs your help, your wisdom, your message. It’s time.

(No idea how to do that or feel like you need some guidance with that yourself? Contact my PA Trish at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and put your name down for advance notification on my course and retreat Platform in November 2019 – which is all about helping you craft your book, message and course to put out into the world.)

Supportive crystals this week?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. Clear Quartz (pictured) amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. It’s a great stone to enable you to understand at a soul level what you really need. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to decisions and direction. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. 

Helpful essential oils?

Combine Frankincense, Lemon and Douglas Fir Essential Oils for an energising and focusing diffuser blend this week. A ratio of 2 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops each of Lemon and Douglas Fir is delicious!

Frankincense helps you to be grounded and connected at the same time, and reduces stress and inflammation within the body.  Lemon is uplifting and helps bring focus and clarity, and Douglas Fir (pictured below) helps your mind to move past limitations and to connect into possibility and good decisions and it has the added bonus of smelling like Christmas Trees – all woody freshness with some citrus undertones.

Need an oil to enhance your creativity, and to help you move out of overwhelm or anxiety? Use Neroli by diluting and applying to your pulse points as a perfume or add it to your diffuser alone or with a couple of drops of the oils mentioned above.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

This is your one precious life (with this particular set of people, circumstances and dates anyway) – and only you can live it. Be open to the energies of Exploration this week. If you’re not satisfied with your life the way it is, trust that this week you can be shown glimpses of how it could be. Transformation is in the air, and I have so much faith in you! I’m cheering you on.

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

Insight and Intuition – Monday Oracle 3 June 2019

“Intuition is seeing with the soul.” 
~ Dean Koontz

Hello, Lovelies!

June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Intuition brings us.

This is a huge week for psychic and spiritual insight. You’ll find yourself connected in flow. Ideas, realisations, understanding and direction will come easily this week. You’ll be able to access this relaxed state of knowing and flow by moving out of stress. Exercise and meditation is great for that, but so is taking a long soak in the tub, knitting or chopping vegetables for dinner. Inspiration may come in a daydream, a sudden flash of ‘knowing’, in a dream or as a thought or awareness that slowly rises to the top of your conscious mind. Journalling and using your oracle or tarot cards is another useful way to access this flow of information.

Inspiration heralds synchronicities, opportunities coming your way, and things unlocking so that progress can finally be made. It’s a week of positive energy and things going right for you.

This week is quite intense energy which will be problematic for some people because spiritually it means everyone will be a little more sensitive and little more perceptive than usual. That’s not a bad thing, it is simply something that needs to be managed if you know you are one of those more sensitive souls. 

Supportive crystals this week?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone (pictured) encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. Fire Agate gifts you courage to follow your spiritual path, and inspires you to grow beyond your current limits. It’s a stone to kindle your creative flame. Clear Quartz amplifies intuition and our ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. Use it to get clear about what matters in your life! 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Frankincense and Neroli this week. Use Frankincense for focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. It will also help keep you grounded, even as you stay connected.

Use Neroli to help you move back to a place of contentment, confidence and happiness. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care. Don’t have Neroli? Try Wild Orange or Bergamot instead.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Wishing you a transformative and uplifting week of insights, awareness and increased intuition.

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

Rest And Find Your Center – Monday Oracle 27 May 2019

“Activity and rest are two vital aspects of life. To find a balance in them is a skill in itself. Wisdom is knowing when to have rest, when to have activity, and how much of each to have. Finding them in each other – activity in rest and rest in activity – is the ultimate freedom.” 
~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Hello, Lovelies!

Here we are in the final days of May. May has been such a breakthrough month – it’s been a time for positive progress, big leaps forward and fine-tuning of your self-awareness. Lots of lightbulb moments, dramatic shifts and realisations and the odd bit of pattern breaking. So I know you’ll appreciate the energies and gifts of inspiration which the card Rest brings us this week.

Rest is about you recognising it is important to find that balance between sustainability and momentum. Nothing can burn bright endlessly. Everything needs replenishment. So what nourishes and replenishes you?

It’s easy to think of food and exercise as nourishment. They are, but we are also soulful creatures with hungry minds and searching souls. Our souls have their own appetites. Maybe you need to go watch a football game and revel in being part of the larger crowd. Perhaps live music will fill you up, or a wine and cheese tasting at your local cellars. An early-morning surf could be your thing, or a picnic with family or friends, or an intimate date with your beloved. How long has it been since you read a book, listened to the birds in the backyard, visited a new restaurant or attended a workshop about something that interests you?

Rest is also about trying to work out how to incorporate rest into your every day, rest into your week or your weekend or your month. It’s about you thinking about longer holidays. Can you find a work/life rhythm that works for you? Can you start work earlier and finish earlier, or give yourself a later start one day a week? Can you clear one day on your weekend to simply relax and have time for yourself? Can you put the kids in care one afternoon a week to create a window of time just for you?

The messages and wisdom of Rest help you to become mindful about creating sustainability in your life so that you don’t burn out.

Supportive crystals this week?

Pyrite provides passion, power and protection. It builds determination and self-belief.  Dalmatian Jasper helps you move forward, living in mindfulness. It releases stress and amplifies joy. Rose Quartz (pictured) is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving and receiving of love. Yellow Obsidian is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and for embracing change.

Helpful essential oils?

This week look to create a nurturing blend from any or all of the following oils:
Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Neroli invites optimism and a sense of safety, Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition while keeping us grounded and Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or exhausted. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your diffuser.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Guided Meditation Bundle

There is over an hour’s worth of Guided Meditations and a 38-page workbook. The workbook holds specific instructions for using the four guided meditations, as well as journalling activities and reflection/awareness exercises.

The material in the Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle can be used at any time over the next four years, and beyond. My intention with this bundle is to help you become confident in your direction, your intuition, and your contribution to the unfolding history of the world and humanity.

BE gentle with yourself this week. DO your best to tune in and care for yourself, and remember that REST is always worthwhile.

Are you feeling called to explore your Spiritual and Intuitive side?

“Spirituality is not adopting more beliefs and assumptions but uncovering the best in you.” 
~  Amit Ray

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.” 
~ John O’Donohue

 

Byron Bay Residential Retreat – 6 to 11 March 2018

Ever wondered what it means to be spiritual? Curious about spirituality but have no idea where to start?  You’ve recently discovered Angels and oracle cards but don’t know what that means or what to do next?  Stuck in life?  Wondering why you are here?  Think you might be psychic but aren’t sure?  Had a love of spiritual practice, but feel like you’ve lost your way?  Are in need of some nurturing and guidance? Feel like you are going through some kind of psychic or spiritual awakening?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then we have just the course for you!

Join us as we begin our journey in this new energetic age. The old ways are slow ways, and no longer well suited to the quickening energies of this dawning era. You will have felt the turbulence and quickening of these Universal energies. You’ll feel a resonance and a readiness for this next stage, and for being an important part of the process which will unfold this new era. You will be ready to walk a more spiritual path, and to find the comfort this connection brings.

This Retreat will tune you up to these new energies, and actively accelerate your personal and spiritual development. During our time together I will be immersing you in a spiritual and energetic world where you will connect with your own gifts, and be given exercises and activities for your current level of ability, and which are tailored to your specific energetic skillset. There will be time on this retreat for you to seek clarification and guidance with me too, about your spiritual practice, your next steps in life, and your path of service to others.

My retreats are much more than just a learning environment.  They are a safe place for your Soul to evolve.  They are a coming together of like-minded people for sharing and connection, and they are a journey that will accelerate your understanding of and love for yourself and your place in the world.

Want to watch a short documentary about my retreats? Go here.

Highlights:

  • 6 weeks of metaphysical mentoring and guidance through our own online course and private forum
  • a 6 day residential retreat with Nicole and her team in the gorgeous Byron Bay region of Northern New South Wales, Australia

  • connect you to your guides and angels
  • learn meditation and healing techniques
  • receive personalised coaching where necessary
  • indulge in local organic produce with our delicious bespoke catering
  • everyone is welcome to apply, no matter how much of a beginner you feel, or how long it has been since you have had a regular spiritual practice you will find what you need on this retreat
  • Payment plans are always available
  • Discounts available to all YOM members and previous retreat participants

Interested?  Contact us at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com for more information and an Expressions of Interest form.  We look forward to hearing from you!

What Previous Participants Have Said:

‘Words can not express how amazing Nicole Cody retreats are. They really do have to be experienced. This changed my life and I really appreciate the time and effort that Nicole and Dana PA put in. So much wisdom and love surrounds Nicole – I took advantage of the payment plan – so I would highly recommend going along. I made so many lovely friends and had many breakthroughs.’ – Amanda C.

 If anybody is on the fence and wondering if they can actually invest money 💰 in themselves to do this retreat 🌈 I have to tell you what ever it takes if this retreat is calling you do the things you need to to make it happen 🌸 I have attended 3 of Nicole’s courses since I discovered her blog 💫And yes life changing 🦋
I have also met so many wonderful people and you will hear the phrase “finding my tribe” thrown around a lot 🌿
You will never regret going to Beautiful Byron for a life challenging and changing experience 🌷 – Beka L

 I’ll second those sentiments too. I went on a retreat 2 years ago and was so anxious but once I got there and met everyone, I was made to feel really welcome and cherished. Nothing was too much trouble and when I was ” stuck” there was plenty of support from some wonderful people. (Plus the food was awesome) – Mary P

And from my wonderful PA, Dana:

If you have ever wanted to attend a retreat with Nicole but felt you weren’t experienced enough, or that the retreat sounded a bit scary (because channelling and other things we do aren’t for everyone!), then our March “Spiritual Awakening” retreat is perfect for you! It is a very gentle beginners retreat. I cannot put into words how well Nicole, her guides, the food and the environment will nurture and support you.
As booking forms have started to come in, I also wanted to remind you that we can work out a payment plan for you based on what works for you. Unfortunately our suppliers are putting up their prices, so this is the last time we’ll be able to offer this retreat at this price. So please don’t let money be the reason why you don’t join us. Places are starting to fill, so get in touch before we sell out!
Love and hugs to you all, Dana

Medicine For The Soul

polychrome jasper meaning

Polychrome Jasper Heart in earth, sea and sky colours – from my own collection!

“Put ‘im in your bag. Dis lil stone, dis leaf, dis feather. Dem all medicines for you. Your special tings dat make your heart glad. Make your soul remember. Dat good for you. Proper medicine.”

~ Aunty

 

This morning, very early, I woke with a heavy heart. I felt the weight upon it of world events. Of a friend I know who is about to be given devastating health news. Of another friend who is finally reaping the legacy of a genetic illness which is ramping up to destroy life as he has known it.

Those feelings were so big that I could hardly get out of bed. But I did, and I grabbed my Medicine Bag and then sat on cushions on the floor of my lounge room in the quiet pre-dawn.

I lit a candle, listening to the scratch of the matchtip on the rough box end, and then the sudden hiss and flare of the flame. I lit a stick of incense. I spread a cloth on the floor in front of me.

From my bag I took my singing bowl and placed it on the cloth. My mala beads went there too. From my bag I took a few favourite crystals. I held the stones for a moment and then placed them on the cloth. Then I took up the singing bowl and settled into meditation.

Nicole Cody Tibetan Singing Bowl

I let each wave of sound radiate love out into the world. Peace. Calm. Hope. Unity. Love. I breathed this energy in and out. I travelled it with the waves of sound and with my intent.

I sent healing to my friends and their families and carers. And to mine. I sent healing and love to each of you.

I offered up my prayers.

I meditated until a profound peace and reconnection to love was all that I could feel, then returned the bowl to the floor.

I sat a little more in this energy of peace and love, and then reached into my bag for my cards. The room was light enough to see now. I drew a card for the day (these cards are so old and worn and dear to me that I need only hazily glimpse the picture for it to be clear in my mind) and reflected on the meaning for me.

I wrote in my journal.

2015-03-18 06.38.17

I sat awhile with one of my crystals. I packed everything back into my bag, ready for tomorrow, or whenever else I may need these tools again.

And then I got up, refreshed in body and spirit, put the kettle on, and began my day.

That is what my Medicine Bag does for me. Within it is a physical space, a spiritual space, a healing space – which I can unpack and use at any time.

The ritual connects me to my Aboriginal Aunties, to my Grandmothers and to myself. It centers me in love. It reminds me to live from love, and from my heart, no matter what is happening in the wider world. It gifts me guidance and perspective. It brings me back to what matters when my mind has run away with its worries.

My Medicine Bag

On Saturday 26 November I’ll be running an afternoon workshop in Brisbane to teach you how to create your own Medicine Bag. I will give you the basic spiritual foundation practices to use this bag the way I use my own.

I will also cover the practices and tools that can help you to develop a regular spiritual practice and strengthen your intuitive and psychic ability. We will look at the fundamentals of working with crystals, connecting with your guides, simple meditation techniques, using oracle and tarot cards to give yourself an intuitive reading, and some foundation metaphysical principles for raising your vibration. These are all the things I used at the beginning of my own journey, and that have led me to where I am today.

There are just a few places left – more details here.

Online Option: If you’re not able to attend, but would like to learn how to craft and use your own Medicine Bag, please contact Dana, my wonderful PA at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and ask to be put on our Medicine Bag mailing list. I’m currently putting this together as an online course with an optional materials package (of the things we will be using in our physical workshop). We’ll let you know as soon as the course is available, and those of you on our list will get a special discount!

Here’s a sneak peek of some of our Medicine Bag workshop materials (if you look closely you’ll see oodles of crystals in the corner too!), as well as my friend Carly who has been looking after me as I recover from my recent surgery (And I’m doing VERY well, thank you <3 ) and helping me with my workshop preparation.

Join Me for a Twelve Day Oracle Card Challenge?

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
~ Ernest Hemingway

Hello, Lovelies!

So, here I am in Rome for a few days, before Ben and I begin our cruise around the Med. And you may be surprised to know that our very first stop in Rome is the airport cafe! Why? Good coffee and fast, free wi-fi. Once we get to our hotel and then onto the ship I am expecting the internet to be quite dodgy for the next little while, so Ben suggested that I get some blog posts loaded for you before we catch a cab to our hotel.

And the result?

I have a wonderful Oracle Card Challenge for you!

June is our mid-year point, and that makes it a fabulous time for a little refocusing on who we are, what we need, and where we are going.

Whether you’re working with my Year of ME Planner (which you can still buy! I’ve created a mid-year intake for our membership group, and a modified Planner to take you through from June to December. Details here), or simply doing your best to make the most of 2016, I’ve designed a simple project for you to help you get that clarity as we had into the second half of this year.

Want to join me?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A deck of your favourite oracle cards
  • A journal
  • A favourite crystal or stone
  • Some pens and pencils
  • About ten minutes of your time each day (of course you can spend more, but ten minutes will get you done!)

Go gather your materials together and meet me back here tomorrow for your orientation to the program. Don’t worry if you haven’t used oracle cards before. I’m going to show you everything you need to know.

Lots of love, Nicole xx

Listening to the Universe

Night Sky by Eric Hines

Night Sky by Eric Hines

“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”
~ Mark Buchanan

 

I sometimes joke with my students that my oracle and tarot decks are all broken, because the cards I pull from them for myself so often have one message.

Rest.

Of course today I expected something different.

And I got this:

2016-04-10 16.04.23

I’d be lying if I told you that I didn’t groan and roll my eyes…

I so wanted it to be a different message.

But I also know it’s the message I need.

 

There’s a difference between hearing and listening. When you hear, you have a momentary engagement, which quickly passes without making much of an impression. When you listen, you take the message on board and pay attention.

I’ve learned that when you ask the Universe, the message keeps coming up until you finally listen and apply the wisdom being presented to you.

I’m ready for a new card. But that won’t happen until I’m rested. Time for me to listen.

How about you? Do you ever get the same card, or the same theme, over and over?

What do you do when that happens?

Much love to you from Snooze Central.

A New Journal Challenge For You!

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
~ Rumi

Writing a journal is something I’ve done since I was a child. I don’t mean a simple diary, where you record the events of the day. You know what I mean… I ate this. I did this. Someone said that. No. I mean a place where I could explore ideas, talk with myself, and find my own answers.

Over the last few years I’ve created several journal challenges here on my blog, and I’ve just made a new one for you, to take advantage of the fabulous energies August and September bring for truly going deep within, in order to know and understand ourselves better.

Would you like to join me?

We’ll be starting next Sunday, August 2nd, so that you have adequate time to gather your resources together. Each Sunday for September and August I will have a new journal activity for you to complete during the week. You’ll need a minimum of ten minutes to set aside each week for writing, and an additional five minutes per day for five out of seven days for energy work. (If you can do more, great. If you can only find ten minutes then we’ll flow with that too.) There will also be an optional guided meditation each week.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A new journal. Choose one that feels right for you. Make sure there are enough pages to get you through 9 activities.
  • Some pens and pencils.
  • A small stone to use as a gratitude rock.
  • A larger rock or crystal to use as a guidance stone.
  • A deck of oracle cards.
  • A sense of adventure and a readiness to explore your inner world.

NB: A note on choosing oracle cards – choose cards whose pictures and messages are meaningful to you. Avoid cards such as tarot decks that show only coins or cups etc. Instead choose a deck whose imagery really speaks to you. It’s the pictures that matter. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to use them. I’ll be showing you.

That’s my own journal, cards and stones in the picture below. I’ll be right beside you doing each week’s activities too. My gratitude rock is a small citrine, and my guidance stone is a labradorite. The oracle cards I’ll be using are Colette Baron-Reid’s Enchanted Map cards

Who’s in? Pop your name in the comments or let us know over on facebook. If you post a pic on the facebook page during this challenge, you’ll be in the running to win a cool prize! Stay tuned for directions.

Much love, Nicole <3 xx
