I rarely post items here

... but I had to share this.

It will end up only showing in my Sold items on Etsy, because it was a custom order, for a Wiccan business card holder. You'll notice I put Lucky's business card on one side.
I did a little write up on my blog about this. Most of this is fairly common knowledge to the readers of this blog, but some of it may be of interest.

...I was pleased to have a roaring success with this Wiccan business card holder.

For those of you not familiar with these symbols, the pentacle represents 5 elements: spirit, air, fire, water, and earth, with spirit being the top point. Although some Christians in modern times are suspicious of the pentacle, in medieval times it was also thought to represent Five Virtues and was referred to as being embroidered on the equipage of great Christian knights in epic poems. In the Tarot, the Pentacles are the suit of Air, Intellect, and Wealth: not bad symbols for a business card holder.
The Triple Moon symbol represents the Goddess as maiden, mother and crone. The waning and waxing of the moon has always been seen as a metaphor for the cycle of life, and the Fates found in many myths are likely a version of the triple goddess. I consider the Triple Moon an excellent reminder in today's youth culture that there are other times of life which are just as important. Those with life experience become more confident and more powerful.

I love this! This is really awesome.

Now if you had one with a celtic triquetra on the other side instead of the pentacle -still have the triple moon of course; that would be perfect for me!!
