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:

Join me on All hallow’s Eve as I blog about my favourite night of the year.

Happy Samhain!

Please take time to answer this quick quezzie

Hi Everyone,

As you know, I am in the process of getting ideas together to develop my little Arts & Crafts business. As my two passions are Arts & Crafts and Natural Healing, I am looking at a fusion of these disciplines to create ‘Healing Arts and Crafts’ that are both functional and beautiful to look at.

To start with, I would like to know what people are using in the world of Alternative Therapies. There are some disciplines here that I would like to work with, but I am open to others that are not on the list.

I have already created some pieces using Crystals, Aromatherapy, Colour therapy, Ancient symbols & Wicca and Angel Healing but obviously I need to gauge what’s popular out there so I can focus on fusing the right disciplines with my Art. Win-win for me as a business and the customer for their Holistic and Spiritual needs in life!

Thank you for clicking!

                                   

New Painting for a set of Elemental Angel Oracle Cards~Part 1

She’s the Wiccan manifestation of the element of Water.
Her name is Ondine
I am painting her as part of my new set of Oracle cards.
‘Elemental Angels’
A set of cards with the Elements as the Major Arcana and then the many attributes of each Element as the Minor Arcana.
There will be initially 30 cards.
But there will be more available to add to the set in the future. The more you have, the more in depth your readings will be.
The cards are for positive affirmations only. The ‘negative’ aspects of each card will be there as light warnings or gentle suggestions of how you can improve or develop your character or outlook.
I will include affirmations from my own intuitive responses to each card.
This is the basic background of the WATER Element card so far.
Watch this space as I progress!
