Nix's News

Portchester Gala

Had a fabulous windy day at the castle, busy painting 28 people, plus 'the head' and my foot!  Lots of pink stuff, and some indivdual requests including a chocolate labradoodle. 


Easter Fun Day

I'll be face painting here tomorrow :-). I'm also donating a gift voucher for the raffle to win a free one hour Reiki session at The Natural therapy Centre in Cosham, good luck!


Event at Portchester Football Club

 

Nix in Nature will be here for magick wand sales, wand orders and also advertising Reiki and artwork services :-).


Fireworks and Face Painting

Our first event since moving back south and 27 faces to paint! I didn't really know where the night went but everyone was lovely and the fireworks were nice. The event was held at the local football club.

   


Samhain Face Painting

Not long moved back down nearer family and had this lot to get through (except Scartlett/Jess and Jack the skull :-))!

   

  


Activities at Forest Hills

Magick Wands

I'm loving that the wand sessions are fully booked lately - more magick makers spreading good spells around :-).

Everyone chose hazel for their wands except Erin, who chose willow

From left: Inigo, Toli, Joseph, Erin, Ailsa, Connie, Grace, Amber, Francesca, Georgina, Mia and Joseph. Stella and Josephs Dad's wand wasn't pictured, sorry.

Face Painting

Erin stayed for an Ice-Queen face, then Anna had some party balloons on her arm, Evie a unicorn and Ailsa a butterfly, all very pretty.

Bushcraft & Survival

We survived on this one but alas, the rain was all a bit too much for the bats, so we had to cancel :-(.

 


Activities at Forest Hills

Magick Wands

This weeks mystical wands...

From left: Tyla's Willow, Romy's Silver Birch, Troy's Willow and Anna's Willow.

Face Painting

Anna and Sophie went for the same design, maybe they needed cooling off with the snowflake after all this lovely sunshine!

Bat Walk

Eleven bat hunters joined us tonight and we were lucky enough to watch a Mum leading her baby pup pip' around the grounds in the search of midges - of which there was plenty to choose from :-). They must be good to eat seen as bat's hearts can pump out the equivalent number of beats that would take us humans three hundred years to pump out! These bats can live for 16 years and their hearts can beat up to 600 beats per minute whilst hunting on the wing and just 10 bpm while in their winter torpid states - clever!

 


Forest Hills Activities

Lovely sunny and busy day at Forest Hills, starting with Magick Wands, then Face Painting, Bushcraft & Survival then the Bat Walk.

 

Lily, William and Amelia all wanted the same!

George's Oak Wand with red ribbon for extra protection and grounding.  George then went for a brown long eared bat for face painting.

Iona's lovely tartan style Oak wand. I forgot to take Jeremy's Hazel wand (who came all the way from Up State New York!), Arran and Aiden's Ash wands, Sheila's Oak wand and Mike's Hawthorn wand - they were all lovely!

Lily pond in flower below Forest Hills.

 

 


Magick Wands at Tigh Mor

Now the kids are off on the holidays we are back at Tigh Mor on Sundays doing Magick Wands and Face Painting.  Here are this week's lovely wands, from left:

Natalie's Hawthorn, Cameron's Hazel, Andrew's Ash, Khaya's Hazel and Anna's Hazel.

 


Cobleland Activities

 

Chocolate Quest

This week's Chocolate Quest theme was trees.  Young Ross was excited to find a Leprechaun house in Teapot Wood, although he said when he did find a leprechaun he would steal its gold and not share it with anyone!
The team were quite good on the questions, Adam got this one right:
What is the name of the nature spirit who resides in a tree?
A. Dryad
B. Druid...
C. Droid
I think the trees enjoyed it this week as the Willow by the playpark got 3 hugs as forfeits :-).

 

Artwork - Fatalis Sacristia

Face Painting

Ross's twin Todd designed an impressive geometric shape for his face, I couldn't resist the glitter to make it more magical and mystical.

Bushcraft

Ross and Todd's family joined us for the Bushcraft session, Janey and Adam were excellent fire starters and we all loved the delicious bilberries, mmmmm.

Magick Wands

 

 

Wands from left: Jordan's Hazel, Moira's Hazel, Chantelle's Hawthorn and Will's Hazel.

Dusk Walk

We escaped the midges on the site to explore the magic of the forest at dusk.  Jordan taught us yet another use for rush-lite, using it like a needle and thread, amazing stuff! The bats made a welcome appearance at about 10:30pm, but it still wasn't quite dark enough for the water bats.
