Oh, those cups are lovely! Nice buy, Gregory!!! It makes me wonder even more if I want my cups to be in red/orange or in other colours...:f

 

And no, I haven't had any PayPal problems. But I always use credit card (or funds if I have them, which is seldom). I just made two payments, so I can say for sure it is working for me.

I just paid for a set of the Cups :D:D:D:D:D
through Paypal, in fact I paid for all my Etsy purchases through Paypal without any problems.........but Paypal IS kind of erratic at times, so it's not you or Etsy.

I have succesfully paid with PayPal on Etsy. Maybe you were just unlucky.

I just ordered this deck, and it seems as if it was the last one for now. I'm glad I was able to buy it now. Others may have to wait until the next batch is put on the site. I have not seen if this is a limited edition or not. Does anyone know?

Given that every one is hand made, I think they are limited in the sense that the artist will get tired of doing them in the end. But they are in any case limited in that every one is different.

I plan to get each of my suits in a different colour :D Because I can !!!

I was really doubting, but I think I will do the same. Also get each suit in a different colour. Mainly because.. well, that one you bought.. the purple/magenta one is soooo beautiful! I am thinking of asking Aya if she could use the same colours for mine. It would still be different though.. each one is unique. I have the majors on the same colours as Debra and they are still unique.

Or maybe I should ask for blue? Gahh.. now I don't know anymore.. lol!:f

And... I changed my mind again. And snatched up that copy of the Cups that was on Etsy right now, in Aqua, Ultramarine and orange. It took me about an hour of doubting if I should take that one or ask for blue or purple. But I have finally decided :ok

Looks like there are more up right away. Seems she churns them out pretty fast. I think the few people here are the ones buying all the copies she puts up. I haven't seen a colour combo to my liking yet. Maybe a brown and blue. Will she do custom? Bet she would.

Gregory, I thought you were retired and broke? ;)

Yes, she does do custom. I have asked for my majors only to be in red and orange and she made it that way for me. I know others have asked her for certain colours as well. So just send her a message.

I am. But I am still a collector at heart, and some things are just TOO special to pass... This seems to be one of those.... (If I hate it I shall scream a whole lot, mind...)

I succumbed and bought the Cups suit. The aqua will clash with the red/orange of my Majors, but I think this might give the deck some interesting tension. (Or me a sore eye. Let's see...)

OK - it's here. I love it, And I hope even more now to get all the suits in different colours.

One question I have is - why did she leave the Moon unnumbered ? I have e-mailed her - but does anyone know ?

I just received my Cups too. And they are lovely! I am already looking forward to the other suits. Now I am wondering if I want them all in different colours though (again) or if I rather have all the minors in these lovely aqua/blue/orange colours.

Gregory, I've looked and looked but I haven't found mine yet so I can't say whether my Moom is numbered or not.  I have no theory except the possiblilitiy of forgetfulness.  I know that at one stage I  numbered the High Priestess as 3 (Y'know, Fool = 1, Magician = 2, High Priestess = 3).  It wasn't based in esoteric reasoning, is was just forgetfulness.... counting crows (cards).  Maybe you could send her s PM.  There is the facility to do that on Etsy.

I just purchased this deck, but don't know about the Moon card... Will have to wait to get it to see what's what with that...

I wrote to Aya asking about a Minor Arcana to go with this deck, but that was just 20 minutes ago, so haven't heard back yet...

Here's the one I purchased:

Thanks for the heads up. Again, they look lovely. I am very tempted to buy them on the spot, but I had promised myself that my next set would be in purple/magenta. So I messaged Aya with the request.

Yes I KNOW - I had asked her to e-mail me as soon as....

AND STILL someone else got in first; she is posting one Swords a day....

I really want them in red..... My cups are purple/blue.... I'm going for 4 colours for 4 suits !

Oh PS - she answered about the Moon - it was an accident, but she now feels it was meant to be and is leaving it !

ETA I have a green Swords on the way :D yee har or something !

Yippie! My set of purple/magenta Swords is on my way to me :hp.

Aya already made the set to my request and they were up. Wow, she is so fast. And I do think the purple/magenta is lovely for this set. I am glad I asked for it.:ok

My green swords are here. Lovely.

I think it was a brilliant idea of mine to go for different colours for each suit :D

Ah, I couldn't resist the temptation anymore and succumbed to buying the Wands in green, aqua and brown. I do think it looks really nice and I was considering asking her to make them in green colours. So I guess it works out.

One of my other passions is photography, and as a result I look at a lot of online portfolios. In a weird bit of synchronicity, I just followed a link to a photostream on flickr, only to discover that it was Aya Rosen's. Anyone interested can find it here.

From her web site at etsy.com: 

"I think that 4 e-mails in one week from people who were wondering if I ever going to finish the tarot deck, plus listening to "witches Abroad" my Terry Pratchett finally pushed me over the edge and I finally got off my lazy ass (just to sit it again on the floor where the books and pens are) and finished the last Suite of the Black Lilly deck, which I started working on about a year and a half ago.

I wonder how long before I start a whole new deck, which I'm already starting to think about...

I still need to write the instructions and probably take a trip to the paper store, and maybe also the fabric store, but I hope the have the first deck up for sell in the beginning of next week. "

Coinish colours, to make it different from my others. Yellows/oranges/browns. I have blue cups, green swords and red wands as I recall.....

Ah yes, well, my colours of the Black Lilly suits are a bit strange (in the respect that they don't correspond with the the suits at all.. but I thought they were pretty:cl)

My majors are red and orange

Cups are aqua/ultramarine and orange

Swords are purple/magenta

Wands are aqua, apple green and brown

So.... that leaves what for the Coins??? Hmm..maybe yellow and green.. although I would also like something aqua and green....:z

I tried to see her cards (for some reason I get a better impression of them if I see them nicely placed one after another) - so from Etsy I went to Flickr, as she wrote: 'If you want to see all the images of the card, check out my flickr page' but I am getting the message that
This member is no longer active on Flickr.

tried links indicated in this forum - same result


would anyone know, is she stopping making the cards? or what could've happened?

She had a lot of web sites.  I suspect she just gave it up.  She's on etsy and responds to messages there, though :)

I left that one alone (don't want Gregory coming to knock on my door...yikes!:ww ). But I did buy one of the others, the one with green, aqua  and yellow. I was doubting between wanting green/blue or yellowish, so I guess this is a good mix :cl. Oh, and there is even a hint of gold in this one as a bonus:hp.
