5k Cancer Research Run.

Hey everyone,

Hope everyones been ok and had a fab weekend.

I just signed myself up to do another Cancer Research Run, can't wait!

I did a 10k one in 2009 whilst 12 weeks pregnant and I was moving house the week after. I have to be kept busy at all times, I'm sure I do stuff in my sleep. Well anyway, I raised £19, and £5 of that was a sponsor from me, I know I'm nuts, lol.

This time I would like to dress up in something fun, but not too heavy as I have a bad back and funny hip. Any ideas?

I forgot to add why I'm doing the run... My step Mum, Grandad and Nan all lost the battle, but I'm not just doing it for them, I'm doing it for everyone that is fighting or has lost the battle to Cancer.

If you would like to sponsor me I would be sooo greatful.

Thank you everyone. x

Where did 'Ostra' come from?

Ostra come to me through meditation. Spirituality is very important to me, and all forms of it too.

I was meditating to meet my spirit guide. I did my usual grounding and protecting as this is very important with any healing, meditation, readings, leaving the house and so on. I then went into meditated state (clear the mind etc) I went down this track in some woods, beautiful woods with bluebells it was too stunning for words. I then heard Ostara, never saw anything just heard that, that's ok with any new guide they may take their time to be seen as they want to make sure your ready.

I came out of my meditation, and wrote it all in my journal, everything goes in my journal! I then looked up Ostara posted a thread about my  meditation on a spiritual forum I'm on. I found out Ostara -  'Oestra' is the spring enquinox and it's one of the Wiccan sabbats. So when I work with this guide in the future it's most likely she/he was wiccan. So that's why I chose the name Ostra.

This weeks makes :)

I thought I would add this weeks makes.. They are all wire related, I'm loving working with wire! Although my poor hands and nails would tell you a different story, need to put some gel on my nails to protect them, as wire loves to attack them, lol. Oh well never mind a few chipped nails are well worth it. So here goes.......
 Blue and silver plated wire, with turquoise veined jasper crystal.
 Olive and silver plated wire, with a black rose.
 This is a gift for my friends Daughter, she is 13 Saturday, just her card to make now :) and Reiki charge her pendant. I love making things for people for their special days, to much more meaning and thought goes into it - Olive and silver plated wire with fluorite crystals chips.
 Silver plated wire and tiara band with priscosa beads.

I haven't managed to make much this week due to my beautiful children being on their school holidays. This following week I think I need to get my college work done, but creating is much more fun, lol. Note to self - Pull your finger out more!!! I really can't wait till I creating full time!!

Thank you for taking time to have a look at my blog.

Todays makes!

Hi again everyone... I'm here again.

I thought I would add two wire makes for today. I have never made anything with wire until Monday. I've used wire for tiara's but nothing else. To be fair I love the stuff! Still need to practise, but like everything you have to work at it to be any good.

So here goes my first two piccies....

 I used pink wire (need some new colours) I don't like the pink! Silver plated wire and flourite crystal chips. I want to try different shapes other than a circle. I'm a tree hugger and love trees, so when I saw this on the net I had to give it a go.
I used silver plated wire and blue glass beads for this ring. I'm unsure about this ring. I made it for a friends birthday tomorrow, she loves the colour blue..... I hope she likes it.

Thank you for stopping by! x

Blog virgin!!

Awww this is scary !!.... Never wrote a Blog before, so please be gentle with me until I get my brain around it, lol...

Right where do I start? Well as you can see this is my first ever blog and not sure what to type, so we'll see what pops into my head ay? Feel for you all, lol.

I love all things creative, I'm currently trying out wire wrapped jewellery, aww and all  I can say is I love it! Never knew how many things you could do with a little piece of wire, even when I go to bed I'm thinking what I can make the next day. I don't know how to switch my brain off that's my problem, lol. I have made soaps, bath salts, greeting cards, tiara's, and obviously jewellery.

I don't sell my creations, I give them to friends and family as gifts, I find it so much nicer to have something handmade, not sure if they feel the same. But I don't care, lol. I can't keep everything I make, can I?

Hopefully by May I will be setting up a small business selling my creations, and face painting, may as well earn some pennies for something I love doing. So alot of work ahead of me, with my four angels and finishing my course, but hard work don't kill anyone, does it? As my Mother always says 'you reap what you sow'. I hope she's right, lol.

I have another passion apart from learning, children and crafts and that is..... Spiritual findings, so things like healing crystals, spiritual readings, meditation, wicca, Angels, fairies. I know I may seam wired, lol, but I love it and it's a part of me.

Hope that wasn't too bad for a first post.
