Summer Solstice morning

Well in years gone past, I’ve stayed up on Dartmoor over night with friends (in the rain) to see the sun rise on the solstice, but this year with another predicted wet and rainy morning I didn’t set up alarm.  However, Daffyd, one of my cats, woke me up at 04:10 so I got up, to greet the wet morning.  Living in a small town I couldn’t see the sun rise, but I did light a candle and welcome the dawn.

Summer Solstice

Well the Summer Solstice is almost upon us and the weather in typical British style has involved heavy rain and thunder-storms this week.  As I have two weeks off work after tomorrow, I am hoping it will improve.  I have finalised the design for my first set of temporary tattoos and have been experimenting on myself, although I’m going to try them on a few friends as well before I put them up on my Etsy Store.

Blessed Beltane

Well the weather for Beltane was a bit dismal, but things have certainly brightened up this week in Mid-Devon, and we’re having a mini heat wave now.  I’ve been managing to get out in the garden and start doing a bit of weeding after 18 months of mother’s ill health and then mine, so the garden needs a lot of work, but I’m trying to do it, little by little.

I’ve started designing some temporary tattoos for my Etsy store, I decided to start with Summer Solstice themed and noticed I was swinging between two design styles, so am going to do two different sheets, one titled Sun and Fire and the other Henna Lace.  My paper supplier has of course run out of tattoo paper, but it gives me a bit more time to finalise the designs.  I’m also planning a Black and grey series for later in the year for Samhain… I’ll post images as I go and let you know when they are available in my shop.
