My name is Crista and thank you for visiting. If your wondering, yes, my name is spelled correctly. I’m use to people spelling my name either with a “K” or a “Ch” but Crista originated from Latin, ( Italy and Spain. ) It means, “follower of Christ” or/and “appointed one.”
I love various crafts, but needle felting is one of my favorite pastimes. I started needle felting in 2007. I started when needle felting was just starting its beginnings in North America and supplies were a challenge to find. I learned needle felting from Japanese craft books!
Needle felting is a fibre arts craft that is the dry technique for creating 2D and 3D felted work. All you need is roving/top and core batting wool, felting needles that are barbed, ( you couldn’t felt otherwise,) and a dense foam pad to protect the needle and the surface your felting on. I’m still learning my craft and plan to create jewellery next.
I love going to flea markets and finding little treasures too. I love to take something old and make it new again.
I am a Level I Reiki practitioner. I’ve been practicing since April 2010. I love it and it will always be in my life.
What is Reiki?? It’s a form of healing by relaxation and energy transfer. A Reiki practitioner is a channel for “universal energy” with palm healing or hands-on-healing. I practice more with the Traditional Japanese Reiki than the Western Reiki. What’s the difference? The main difference is that the Western Reiki uses systematised hand-placements rather than relying on an intuitive sense of hand positions. I also prefer the non-touching technique than the hand placements. I don’t encourage at all to use Reiki as an alternative to western medicine, but I do encourage open-mindedness. If your set on it not working, your closed mind will act like a block.
Okay, enough about me lets get to crafting.
