Another Fairy

I did this for a swap on swap-bot. I love the way she turned out. I think I might start making little matchbox "suitcases" for the ones I sell on etsy. I think it's a fun little collection of goodies to go with the fairies.

Yay my sencond Fairy for the new year. My first one went to a very special person! :) This is Antheia Queen of the Flowers. I love the way she turned out. She's so very purple and beautiful. I try to come up with a little blub story for each of my fairys. Most of the time they come to me while I'm creating the fairies themselves. As each fairy presents it's personality to me, a story usually emerges. I'm working on improving my photos of them to create more "wow" factor. I think this image is pretty, but I feel the background takes away from the fairy.

Her little story "She's the Queen and there's no doubting it. She loves to make sure all the flowers come up in time for the first spring blooming. Her favorites are the purple flowers of course, but she likes the other colors too. On her head she wears her little leaf crown and golden flower."

2008! It's here!

I'm hoping very much to spend a great part of 2008 creating things for my etsy shop. I had a pretty nice pace going there for awhile, and with my new job it kind of took a back seat. I'd love to take it back to full swing and really start pumping out wonderful handmade crafts.

FAE is top priority at the moment. The lovely people there at FAE are growing in leaps and bounds membership wise, and we're hoping to take the group to all kinds of new professional highs. We're looking to get into specialty magazines and publications geared toward our general buyer base.

In that respect there are tons of new ideas floating about from a brainstorming session with some of the lovely gals from FAE. They filled my head with all kinds of new package plans for my fairies, and ideas for new items! So if you like my fairies, keep your eyes peeled! They'll be arriving soooooon!

In the meantime, here's an old one to give some eye candy to the blog. It's sad it's been so bare lately.
