She led us down the path toward the open field, toward what she knew we were looking for.
It's not always a path of light, that journey is not always the caterpillars struggle to become a butterfly. Sometimes it's just being, returning from whence you came.
There will be pain.
There will be death.
There will always be the darkness before the light.
Hey, I realised I've never properly introduced myself on here, and since I've been getting quite a few followers lately I figured now's a good time! ✨
I'm Nicole, I'm 22, and I am the sole creator / photographer / parcel packer behind Small Treasures. I'm non-binary (they/them/their pronouns please, but it's okay if you forget!), bi/pan, vegan, mentally and physically ill, a physicist, artist, fat babe, makeup/skincare addict, and trying to be a good person 👌
I started Small Treasures a year ago whilst I was still at uni, as a way to own pretty crystals when I couldn't really afford to build up a large collection. Since then I have also incorporated my art into the shop, made a lot of new friends, and Small Treasures has become a reason to get out of bed in the morning! I left uni last summer - my anxiety and depression were making it hard to turn up to lessons, and I was in a pretty bad place. Luckily, someone I knew had a spare room, so I moved up here to a little town near Dundee to recover and focus on my mental health. Since then, I'm glad to say I'm feeling better than I did - I have a part time job at Lush with the best people I could have hoped to meet, and I am slowly getting support for my mental and physical health. I hope to rent a flat of my own in the city by summer, and I'm super excited! You can see more of my life over on my personal @existentialcrisistime 🌟
If you've made it this far, thank you 💖 And feel free to introduce yourselves in the comments below, I'd love to get to know you.
I have to admit I was not super excited about the prospect of ~having~ to make my own tarot bags. I used to design/sew dresses and skirts for weddings and special occasions to make ends meet and 'burnt out' doesn't even begin to describe how I felt towards the end. There was zero magick in sewing for me for so long.
BUT! Then I found this absolutely gorgeous hopsack linen with incredible drape and softness and it's all I can think about. Plus I like the idea of being able to provide quality control at every step.
Black Linen Tarot Wrap Bags with soft felt lining coming soon!🖤
