Whats New ... Major Changes In My Life so far

Hello my lovelies,

I finally got the courage to face you all after all the things that have recently happened to me that pretty much ran me through the dirt and then back again, firstly i was involved in a car accident that wrecked our car (i was not at fault) and then secondly long story short i lost my job under suspicious circumstances. 

I know what your thinking, "why do you need courage to tell us about this stuff?" well to be completely honest i have put it off because i was worried about disappointing everyone and also worried about what people would say to me about what happened. 

I have been really down and out over it and only recently started to feel better.  I got accepted into my Diploma in Children services studying in Brisbane city and get to strive closer to my dream of becoming a kindy teacher which i start next week and i have lost more weight and cm at gym so i have come to think that getting to study something i love and follow my dreams may just be the silver lining in all of this.


Bye for now xx

DIY Plugs

Recently i decided to have a go at making my own plugs for my stretched ears, my ears are 12mm so i used a ruler to measure the diameter to make sure they were the right size. This is what i did...

1. I went to my local dollar store and bought some polymer clay that you can bake in the oven

2. Work some of  the clay in your hands

3. Shape the clay into a sausage shape and break it into small pieces

4. Roll clay into plug like shapes and use the ruler to check the size ( note if it looks slightly too small, don't worry about it as they can expand in the oven only by 0.5-1mm but still i learned that the hard way as my first batch turned out too big )

5. Bake in the oven for 30mins at 130 degrees (c)(30mins for even 6mm of thickness)

And once they have finished in the oven and cooled down you now have your very own polymer clay plugs

Thanks for reading

Bye for now my lovelies
