The Good, the Bad, and the Fairies

Well, I know it's been awhile, but here I am again!

I know I'm not a very diligent blogger, but I have my reasons.

1. I hate to write out my thoughts! I wish I could just speak my blog,

it would be much easier!

2. I've been trying to spend less time on the computer, and more time creating.

My husband recently got laid off, so I would really like to make some money!

And that means working harder to create and (Yuk) promote!

3. I've been plagued with lots of bad headaches lately,

that make it very hard to get anything done.

Still, the good news is that I got a surprise in the mail the other day!

I found out that one of my fairies I'd made some time ago

and had submitted to Somerset Magazine made it in the lastest issue!

Here is the fairy above, and below is the issue.

What a wonderful surprise!

Another good thing is the great weather we've been having!

One early evening I spent with my daughter in her treehouse

and in the garden. It was so beautiful!

And, my garden is really starting to look colorful and full!

And guess what I found in it!

A new little fairy!

Isn't she sweet? Actually, I created her just recently!

After seeing fairy dolls in the store, and my fairy in the magazine,

I realized I'd like to make some again.

Only this time with more color!

I will be making more and then will get them in my shop!

As soon as I do, I will mention it here!

Bye for now!
