Was flipping through our copy of @maiatoll's The Illustrated Herbiary today and remembered there were gorgeous oracle cards in the back! So of course, those had to be broken out.⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
The Herbiary describes a four-card cycle you can use when reflecting with these cards, one card for "the root," "the shoot," "the flower," and "the fruit." The Vervain was the fruit for me, the card meant to represent "what will nourish you as you move forward and provide the seeds for the next beginning." I really shouldn't be surprised at this point when the answer to pretty much every life question is just "Let Magic In," but sometimes we all still need a little affirmation. Swipe to see the rest of my cycle! [email protected]⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
Speaking of affirmations, we have a new thread of magiq affirmations up on the Ackerly Green forum today spearheaded by the lovely @thehausoflore! Follow the link in our bio to check them out and contribute some of your own!

When was the last time you sent or received a hand-written letter?⁠⠀
📪⁠⠀
Our inspiration for this month's "Noted and Quoted" #agpapergoods bundle came from our own community, which includes a thriving population of thoughtful and creative letter-writers! Not only have they organized penpal exchanges in the past with each other, but we've also been fortunate enough to send and receive some lovely penpal gifts from the AG office as well.⁠⠀
💌⁠⠀
In the deluge of spam cluttering up our physical and digital inboxes these days, a letter from a friend is such a rare and precious joy, and one that doesn't happen often enough, in our opinion! We hope these bundles inspire you to send more letters out in the world and make a friend smile 💜 ⁠

A little #sneakpeek as we're starting to assemble our #agpapergoods bundles! They'll be on their way out to our AG+ subscribers next week.⁠⠀⁠⠀

We are hard at work in the office today, but we've got something fun we want to chat about with you all tomorrow, so keep an eye out! ⁠⠀

What's on your book bucket list?⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
This summer, I'm tackling a few that have been on my list for a while but have always intimidated me because of their size, and Anna Karenina was on the top of that list! I didn't use to be a multiple-books-at-a-time kind of reader, but I've found that breaking Anna Karenina up with other, shorter reads like the Chronicles of Narnia or The Lord of the Rings makes it feel a lot more manageable. (I'm not sure that LOTR can really be considered a shorter read, but since I'll be reading the three volumes individually I'm counting it.)⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
It is dark and rainy in NYC today and I cannot wait to get home and spend my weekend flipping between Middle Earth and Moscow! Where will your current reads be taking you this weekend?⁠⠀

Swipe to see how my tattoo turned out!!⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
I was SO nervous after we finished packaging the June #agpapergoods bundles because there was exactly one tattoo left over and I was terrified that some unlucky Flinterforge was going to open an empty envelope! I posted a disclaimer on the forum as soon as I realized there could have been a potential mistake, but when nobody responded to say they were missing one, well, if the tattoo fits...⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
Do you have any tattoos, real or temporary? @cjbofficially has an Ebenguard tattoo, and quite a few of our Mountaineers have Magiqverse-inspired tattoos too! My mother would kill me if I ever came home with a real one, but I'm pretty satisfied with my temporary Flintertat for now💜

What do your favorite pins say about you??⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
An ever-growing #tbrpile, Herman the Hippocampus, a full mug, our new keyhole pin, and a teal typewriter...yup, that's Ackerly Green in a nutshell! We love collecting pins because 1. they're adorable, and 2. they're a fun way to show off a little bit of your personality anywhere you go! I've worn Herman and my Flinterforge badge on my jean jacket for about a year now, and I recently added a lightning bolt and a mini Outlander book cover to my collection!⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
We picked up the three @outofprint pins at this year's @bookcon, but we're always on the lookout for more!! Where do you find your favorite pins?⁠⠀

Happy Fourth of July to all of our American friends!⁠⠀
🎆⁠⠀
In true introvert fashion, we'll likely be celebrating the holiday somewhere quiet with a book. I'm planning on FINALLY starting my summer of fantasy this weekend with The Fellowship of the Ring, and I can't wait to report back after the long weekend! Hope you get some good reading time in this weekend as well!⁠⠀

Our July AG Papergoods bundle is live!⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
The theme for this month's bundle is: Noted and Quoted! You can expect personalizable greeting cards to share with friends, hand-made quote bookmarks, Ackerly Green stickers, and a little pop of color just for fun!⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
We have the most fun making these and can't wait to send them out into the world!! Click the link in our bio to find out more about becoming an AG+ member and claiming your AG Papergoods bundle!⁠

Books unlock a world of wonder.⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
Share your love of literary magic, mystery, and all things Ackerly Green with the first official AGP logo pin! The pin itself is just over an inch tall, with dyed-aqua metal, inset with a beautiful navy glitter, which is then sealed with clear enamel.⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
We asked our community what they'd like to see on a new pin from us, and the new keyhole logo was the crowd favorite! We hope they unlock wonder and magic wherever you choose to wear them.⁠⠀

Can you tell we have a thing for certain colors...?⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
Our ink, our dice, our carpet, our pens, and now our water bottles! We can't help ourselves. We just love the "modern magiq" vibes we get from the aqua, teal, and purple! These colors were a bold departure from the dark greens and browns of our old company color scheme, but we love the brighter energy they bring to the office.⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
Still trying to decide what kind of stickers to put on our new water bottles. Going back and forth between our new AG logos and some of the #guildpride designs from our most recent AG Papergoods...decisions, decisions...⁠⠀

What are your go-to comfort reads? Grey skies, rainy day reads?⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
Mine are usually Harry Potter and Jane Austen! Re-reading Harry Potter makes me feel warm and safe and like anything is possible, and Jane Austen's world is so delightfully clever and lovely, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be.⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
Sadly, I don't have either of my favorites with me at the moment, but I am going back through the Chronicles of Narnia and that's a close third! There's something about revisiting books you read when you were a kid that makes their magic feel that much more precious.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
Tell us what you read on dreary, rainy days like this! We're always looking to add to our reading list 💜⁠⠀

What's everyone reading this week??⠀
📚⠀
Been feeling a little too scatterbrained to focus on reading a novel this week, but these short stories have been the perfect reading compromise! Not only are most of them brief enough to squeeze into my commute, but the few I've read so far have been weird and wild enough to keep me captivated and wondering about them still long after I've gotten off the train.⠀
✨⠀
I'm thinking stories will be a good way to break up some of the longer reads I have planned for the summer, so if you have any short story or essay collections to recommend, drop them below! I'd love to hear about some of your favorites 💜⠀

Had a very Flinter afternoon putting together all of the AG Papergoods shipments to go out!!⠀
🔮⠀
All of our AG+ subscribers can start expecting their mystery guild pride bundle in the next few days! We worked really hard on putting this one together and can't wait for it to not be a secret anymore because we're really terrible at secrets and just want to be able to squeal over them with you.⠀
✨⠀
PS: do you like our new tote?? It kept everything nice and dry on my rainy walk to the post office...🌧️⠀

🔮⠀⠀
Show your guild pride with these beautifully colored stickers, inspired by the badges and logo designs from @liamashurst!

Took our #earthboundoracle deck for a little field trip today!⠀⠀
🔮⠀⠀
It was absolutely freezing in the AG office and such a gorgeous sunny day outside so I decided to do a little photoshoot down in Bowling Green! All of the cards in this deck are so beautiful, but while taking a moment to sit on a bench and recharge in front of the fountain, these three in particular felt especially right to me.⠀⠀
✨⠀⠀
I actually had way more fun taking pictures of the cards with the fountain and the flowers, but they didn't really go with the rest of our color scheme and I'm picky (#instagramproblems). I think I'll throw the outtakes up on our story though so everyone can see how beautiful of a day today was! Hope you got to enjoy a little bit of sunshine today, wherever you are!⠀⠀

In our April #agbukbang, @cjbofficially and I talked about how one of our summer reading projects was going to be Lord of the Rings! I've never read them or watched the movies, but ever since Game of Thrones ended I've been in the mood for another good high fantasy world to dive into.
✨⠀⠀
CJ found these beauties at @leftbankbooksny over the weekend, and I'm so excited to read them! They're first editions of the U.S. mass market paperback from 1965, so I'll have to be extra careful 😬.⠀⠀
📚⠀⠀
Tell me what's on your summer reading list! Do you like to plan out your #tbr, or do you trust fate and read whatever comes to you? ⠀

We've got mail!⠀⠀
💌⠀⠀
One of our favorite community initiatives that have sprung up on the Ackerly Green Forum is Mountaineer Pen Pals!! Every couple of months or so, our community leaders match up pairs of interested Mounties to exchange pen pal care packages, and the AGP office always throws our hat into the mix as well.⠀⠀
🔮⠀⠀
We were so blown away by all the sweet surprises in our pen pal package that arrived this week from the lovely @radiatorholiday!! I mean, seriously, look at that hand-crafted wonder tote!! And those old plays!! Swipe to see where all of our goodies ended up around the office, and you can see some of the other pen pal packages on the Forum through the link in our bio!

Check out our #BookCon haul!!!⠀⠀
✨⠀⠀
We had so much fun exploring all of the vendors and publishers at this year's BookCon and picking up some new goodies for the office at the Unbound showroom!! It was so inspiring to be surrounded by book lovers and authors and all kinds of creative people, and it gave us so many exciting new ideas for the future of Ackerly Green.⠀⠀
🔮⠀⠀
Real talk: this was my first ever Con of any kind and it was honestly so overwhelming!! I was completely unprepared for all the lines and crazy crowds. So my question to all our fellow book lovers and con attendees: what's something you wish you'd known before attending for the first time? And especially if you consider yourself more of an introverted #bookworm like @cjbofficially and I do, how do you keep the energy levels up all day?? ⠀

Whatever you may have thought, you're definitely not alone. If you're still looking for answers, we've got 'em. Check out our latest blog post through the link in our bio to peek behind the curtain and read more about what exactly it is that's going on here at Ackerly Green.⠀⠀

You know we love a good secret...⠀⠀
🔮⠀⠀
Coming this summer, we're going to be starting back up some more regular blog posts from AGP Staff! So what I want to know is: what do YOU want to know about Ackerly Green? I can't promise to give away all our secrets, but...maybe we can work out a deal?⠀⠀

05/28/2019

I have a question that may or may not be controversial, but here goes: do you think it's okay to write in books?📚⠀⠀
Asking because I picked up a copy of Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own from a library book sale, and the previous owner has already underlined all of the best lines! I usually prefer to copy out quotes somewhere else if I like them rather than write in the book itself, but since this one is already marked up I've been finding myself underlining other passages that stick out to me too. It feels a little like being in school again, which is fun, and there are just so many gems packed into this little book!⠀⠀
✨⠀⠀
For example, I'll leave you with one of my favorite Woolf quotes of all time, which I found underlined right in the opening chapter: "No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself." ⠀⠀

Our friend @faerytears stopped by yesterday and brought us the cutest little new elephant bush fren you ever did see!! Hawthorne the bowtruckle and lil fuzzy Hermie are so thrilled to have a new green buddy, and we will most definitely be giving her a name soon!!⠀⠀
🌱⠀⠀
@cjbofficially and I were talking today about how May has been an uncharacteristically slow reading month for both of us. I'm hoping to finish up In Cold Blood this weekend so I can move onto something a little more lighthearted...I love a good true crime story just as much as the next person (and this one has been especially fascinating), but it's definitely time to mix it up.⠀⠀
📚⠀⠀
What's everyone reading this weekend? Any recommendations for a good light-hearted read to follow this one? I'm thinking either a fantasy or a romance!⠀⠀

And they're off!!⠀⠀
✨⠀⠀
All of our AG Papergoods shipments are officially out the door! Also apologies to all of our office neighbors who had to hear our Cricut print and cut the last batch of bookmarks and postcards all afternoon...😬⠀⠀
🔮⠀⠀
We absolutely can't wait for these to start arriving and would so love to see where they all end up, so if you choose to share any part of your bundle on social media, make sure you tag us so we can see!!⠀⠀
🌱⠀⠀
And if paper goods aren't your thing, we're back to regularly scheduled succulent content tomorrow, so don't worry!! We even have a new friend to show you that may or may not need a name...⠀

Just have to cut out the bookmarks and print a few more postcards and then all of this month's AG Papergoods will be on their way out into the world!!⠀⠀
✨⠀⠀
This is our second month of running AG+ and we have been completely blown away by the support and encouragement we've received so far, from old and new readers alike. We love putting these little packages together because it's our way of saying thank you for helping us keep the lights while we focus on doing what we love: bringing magiq and wonder into everyone's lives.⠀⠀
🔮⠀⠀
Oh, and did we mention there's been a little update to the list of AG+ perks? Click the link in our bio to read the reveal in @cjbofficially's forum post!

Today was watering day today in the Ackerly Green offices!!⠀⠀
🌱 ⠀⠀
Some of them were looking a bit more neglected than others (which is probably due to the fact that they're all different types of succulents, considering they were equally neglected), but in my head I started thinking of the droopier ones as just being more dramatic than the rest, which led to thinking about how plants have different personalities and so, of course, they had to each be placed into guilds and this is canon now thanks and goodnight!! ✌⠀⠀

When your "homework" for the week is studying up on the D&D Player's Handbook...😂⠀⠀
✨⠀⠀
I may or may not have let slip last week that my sole understanding of D&D came from watching this season of Riverdale, so @cjbofficially thought a little education was overdue, especially considering how much of our readership shares an interest in roleplaying and tabletop games. So to the more experienced folk: any advice for someone just learning the ropes??
🔮⠀⠀
Also can we talk about how gorgeous the illustrations are in here?? I'll probably be sharing more of my favorite pages as I go along because these depictions of characters/settings/objects are simply stunning.⠀⠀
