Was it all a dream?

May 3, 2009

Well it’s a week since the marathon and I’m still having trouble getting my head around the fact that I did it. It seems so long ago! And not quite real!

It’s been an interesting week. As the aches faded, my friends got bored of looking at the medal and I was forced to eat like a normal person again (or risk re-gaining all the weight I lost), I suffered terribly with the post-marathon blues. I mean, what am I supposed to do with my Sundays now I don’t need to go for a three hour run? Should I carry on running? Should I do some 10ks and half marathons just to keep myself going? What do I have to aim for now? What should my next project be?

I think too much 😉

I have been working hard on my fundraising this week and have just smashed through the halfway mark. I’m at around £2,100 of my £4,000 target so your help is still very much appreciated. I held a charity bucket collection in my hometown yesterday, raising an impressive £222.18, mostly I think down to the fact I had Neil of Running For Rhinos very kindly wearing one of the Save The Rhino official rhinoceros costumes!

I don’t think anyone had seen anything like it and we did manage to give several old ladies a bit of a shock! My sister also helped me out in the afternoon and while she can’t move her shoulders today, I have sunburned forearms and aching biceps from holding the bucket!

I’ve also been busy making some more trinkets to sell on my Etsy shop. The entire price of these beauties goes to the rhinos… Just need to sell (and make) a couple of hundred of them and I’ll have reached my target!

More ways to buy a bracelet and help a rhino!

March 30, 2009

I’ve been busy crafting again! As well as, or instead of, sponsoring me, you can also help the rhinos by buying a bracelet (or pair of earrings, or other craft item). Don’t worry about the price being in dollars! That’s just the currency of the site.

Do let me know if you like any of these, or would like a different version, or if there’s anything you’d like to see in the future 🙂

Buy a bracelet, help a rhino

February 15, 2009

As part of my fundraising effort I have been making beaded bracelets to sell in my Etsy shop – Becky Button Designs. I get the feeling that in these straitened times, people want something back in return for giving to a charity, so I have donated my time and the materials and will be giving the entire selling price of each bracelet (or other craft item) to Save The Rhino.

I’ve posted some pics below, please let me know which are your favourites or what you’d like to see (the grey-and-colour themes ones will be made in different colours to the pink and orange too).

All the bracelets have a little rhino charm on the end of the chain to remind the buyer what they’re helping out by buying the bracelet 🙂

I’ve been looking on ColourLovers for inspiration for my soon-to-be rhino themed crafts that I’m going to sell to help me towards my total. I found these lovely palettes and thought I’d share them with you all!

Let me know which ones you like best or if you have any of your own suggestions.
