I do not read to think. I do not read to learn. I do not read to search for truth. I know the truth, and the truth is hardly what I need. I read to dream!

My Faerie Wings!

The process photos of me making my own faerie wings...something went wrong when i was joining them up, but I can't figure out what haha.



Bottom two wings finished...

They're actually very sturdy! One of the problems is when you cover the wire in the fabric, the wire loses it shape, and can't really be re-bent. If the shapes had worked together, then I think these would have turned out rather well.

In response to Hanae

To Hanae, who commented on my post on Crafts.

For some reason blogger won't let me comment straight back to you, so in response to your question;

My etsy store is currently under construction, as I am busy making my items. If you were wondering, my faerie wings will not be for sale, as they're no where near the quality I want them to be. However leech pillows and cuddly leech toys will be available in various styles and colours.

I will make a post as soon as my etsy store is running smoothly :)

Fitness and Confidence

Well I've been doing some thinking recently. And I'm really not happy with my weight, or more preciseley the way my body looks. And it is important for me to be confident in my own skin.
So I'm currently looking at getting a gym membership, I want to get back into swimming properly, and I'm making a healthy eating plan.

I'm also experimenting with other types of excercise, which are also fun, and I've always wanted to do. For instance I have taken to what I call 'My Bellydance Mornings', every morning I shimmy along to tutorial videos, and I'm also thinking of taking a yoga class, but we shall see.

In the past week I've dropped 2pounds, which isn't alot, but is a start.

I want to be fit, I want to be healthy, and I want to be confident!

The current craft list I am undertaking;

-Fairy Wings
- Candles
-Scented Soaps
-Bath Salts
-Leech pillow

The candles are top on my priority, all things will be handmade. If they turn out ok, I may just set up my own Etsy store to sell them all for.
I have some really funky ideas for the candles. I just need the material to make my leech pillow, which I will be hunting for over the next few days, along with the wire for my faerie wings.

I'm so excited I simply can't wait to get everything underway!

Todays Post #3

And finally todays activity. I went out and took some self portraits, which I then experimented subtle editing on. I think they came out really well, and love the outcomes.

Vintage Nature


I also went round for a pot of tea at my friends, who had a new kitten. So of-course I took the photo op for that aswell. Isn't she cute?


Todays posts #2

This post is about my latest success. I did my first tattoo a week or so ago! It was rather nerve-racking, but great fun. I did my best, and I think it came out rather well (considering before this I'd only had a tattoo gun for half an hour) I tattoed some song lyrics on an old friends calf...

Todays posts #1

I'm trying to find something new to do everyday. My aim is to create something no matter how small each day of my holidays. I'm feeling really physically drained at the moment, but I'm doing my best to force myself out of bed early in the morning.

I've got a fair bit to share about what's been going on in my life recently but I don't want to make a massive post, so I'm going to make 3 posts on various aspects.
In this one I'll simply tell you all about my new pet.
Gorgeous little ratty Wolverine!! He's utterly adorable and spoilt rotten with treats.

Lively Animal


I had to share this piece I found whilst browsing dA. It's so oddly serene, but haunting... It really speaks to me, as I'm sure it will to alot of others. The pastel colours are so alluring, and the use of texture makes the piece so much more interesting.
Full view it for the true impact.
