Samhain and my well deserved half term break

Oh the joys!

A whole ten days off school and time to relax and celebrate Samhain, do a lot of painting and art, blogs, pet my beautiful cat and sleeeeeeeeeeeeeep!

It has been a very chaotic and stressful time at school, hence the lack of blogging. I am still loving my job but being hit and scratched continuously does take its toll. The feeling that you spend all your day in the toilet cleaning up various bodily substances again does not help morale…and the knowing that you’re working well below your abilities and skills can get frustrating. Sometimes I do not want to get up in the morning.

But, to the good things! I have been working (albeit painfully slowly) on my Oracle cards. Here are some images showing the progress of the Fire Element:

This is Goddess Pele, a powerful Deity. She will be on the back of all the Fire Elemental Cards.

In the Hawaiian religionPele (/ˈpl/pay-lay[ˈpɛlɛ]) is the goddess of firelightningwind, and volcanoes.

Here are all the MAJOR ARCANA cards together. Each Element will have 3 more Minor Arcana cards to give a clearer and more detailed reading.

These show the size that the oracle cards will be. (Front view)

It was also my 40th birthday earlier in the month:

Happy Samhain!
