Tarot Art and Steampunk Accessories, Courtesy of Jintrinsique

My creative friends inspire and encourage me all the time.  My friend Jen (a.k.a. “Jin”) likes to make art from Tarot cards, such as plaques and magnets, embellishing them with beads, gold paint and other magical things.  Jen, who is an accomplished pastry chef, closed her pastry shop to move across the country to be with her boyfriend (now husband), and she creates food and art with him in sunny Florida.  Here is one of her Tarot-inspired plaques.

Jen and her husband were recently married at the Florida Botanical Gardens, with a steady stream of rain for good luck.  She wore steampunk jewelry she made herself.

… and a jaunty steampunk hat.  The hat led her to create her own steampunk hats, and here are two of them.  They have already been featured in a fashion show, and elicit praise and excitement wherever they appear.  What I love about Jen’s hats are the lush combinations of colors, textures and patterns:
