New Raffle Fundraiser: The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide. Every week 125 people take their own lives, and 75% of all UK suicides are male. CALM exists to change all this. They promote a platform that welcomes positive dialogue about mental health, what is percieved as masculinity and all cultures. Today's world is a difficult time, and as the percentage of suicide is predominantly men, we have to keep in check as much as possible with each other. I'm going to hold a raffle fundraiser with all proceeds going towards this cause. I'll draw a winner on Fri 2nd Oct, and the prize is a daysit with a design of your choice. Entry to the raffle is Β£10, you may donate more if you so wish but it will all count as one entry.

In Scottish folklore, TheΒ CeasgΒ is a creature with the upper body of a woman merging with the tail of aΒ grilseΒ (a young salmon), beautiful, terrible and deadly. The Ceasg lives not only in the sea but also in rivers and streams, and is often imagined as something quite monstrous. In some tales she swallows the hero and he remains alive in her stomach…some folk suggested that the Ceasg may originally have been a sea goddess to whom human beings were sacrificed Design is available, email goatskullshirley.com for booking details πŸ–€πŸ¦‡ . . . .

The Baobhan Sith from Scottish folklore, the wildest Scottish vampires newest addition πŸ¦‡ New design available!πŸ¦‡ Email goatskullshirley.com to get booked in! Here is a little info on the ways of the Baobhan Sith: these are women vampires from the Highlands. Said to hunt in packs, and kill with their large talons rather than fangs. Also, once you are killed, there is no returning as a vampire yourself… you are very, very dead. The Baobhan Sith can take the form of ravens and have hooves instead of feet, and seen mostly in hooded gowns. Men who are out hunting in the woods at night may come across a group of women who will join them and dance, dance until they are feasted upon…only told by the few men who escaped to tell such a fiendish tale… . . . .
