My Guidance Cards are now 13x9cm . (and 400gsm card stock with a silk finish).
My original vision for these cards was this larger size, but at the time , 3 years ago, I couldn’t find anywhere to print this size , near here, that was cost effective. Finally , I’ve found somewhere and I’m thrilled with the results, they look amazing!
They are exactly the same as before, just bigger, and I think, better 🙂
40 Inspirational, guidance cards,
with Reina Cottier’s original designs, and uplifting words or support & guidance.
Included is a leaflet with a brief explaination, extended meaning, of each card in more detail.
Cards come in a grey velvet drawstring pouch.

Occasionally I like to write, time constraints mean that Id far rather spend my time painting, or being artistic in a colourful messy way, but Ive just returned from an amazing art retreat in the stunningly beautiful Bali. Whilst there, Tracy Verdugo (who ran the retreat “Sacred Marks”) got us to sit for around 20 mins, and using inspiration bundles, we expressed a word, or a line of what ever the feeling we got was per piece. AS a result I found myself caught up in a wave of unstoppable expression (HA, I was worried I wouldnt even be able to form more than 4-5 lines!), that went for almost 4 pages!
Here is an example of a couple of my poems….
