I am too busy but I will get them done. I started them.

I am working with a guy I know who is an artist.
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

 ;D   Hi Christine, I love to shuffle my oracle cards and pick one to give me a quick answer or a feel to what is happening at that moment.  I love vibrant rich colors and cards that have gilded edges.  Animal totems are very popular in The Enchantarium at the moment as a lot of people have been to workshops to find out what their totem animals are.  There are not many Aussie decks.
Bags are good but one particular deck ( Unicorns by Diane Cooper ) has the lid of the box folded so it stands up to display one card, it is probably something to see as sometimes I am not really good with describing things... :D Would your deck be animal art work or animal photos?  The reason I ask is that Birds of Prey kind of conjures up a gothic kind of feel for me ( like the Dragonfae deck) Are Ravens birds of Prey? I saw the Ravens at the Tower of London earlier this year and they were awesome...see you soon from Marian

Hi Lapismoon,
no ravens aren't birds of 0prey (raptors) which is what the deck will be about. The idea of the folding box is a good one. We saw ravens at the Tower too.
Did you know the birds here we call crows are actually a smaller raven as well?

 :D Hi Christine, I don't know if the crows here are small ravens...I remember the Ravens at the Tower were pretty huge though!

Yes the ones here are small ravens.
