KAIA Flower Fairy Pin!

Meet Kaia! She's the new fairy pin listed in my etsy shop. She's a star flight fairy or SSF. It's her job to maintain all the stars' sparkle. She loves being in charge of the last check and final polish before they hit the skies each night.

Flower Fairy Pin Listed! More to come!

Finally the pins are hitting my shop! I've had a bit of a stretch of not making any pins at all. I'm thrilled to say, they're making a come back though. I've got about 30 in various stages of complete and will be listing them as I get them done. As always, I do take custom orders for pins the same way I take customs for ornaments. I'm hoping to have a bunch done in time for Mother's day shopping as they're a perfect gift!

Ooo Fairy Skirts!

Look at all the pretty colors! This is just a smattering of the haul I brought in from my last supply trip. I've been extremely low on blue and purple as well as regular pinks/corals. So now the fairy fashion show begins. They'll be strutting their stuff in near future! Tomorrow I'll be listing a pin once again. It's been awhile since I've listed pins for sale. I've got one ready and more awaiting pins before they can make their appearance.

Here's some mail art heading out the door to the Netherlands. I love doing envelopes with fancy things on them. My mail people love me! The two postal mistresses at the local office I go to always worry about putting their tags on the art. It's really cute. Meanwhile, I just fill up the envelope to satisfy my own need for a happy colorful mailing. Anything that's really important, or that I want to be sure is seen, is never put where a label would be placed. Here's the front and back of the piece I'm sending out.

Art and Things Nice Show

I finally started digging through my show photos from this past year. I've been meaning to post what my set up looks like for the Art and Things Nice show and haven't had a chance to. My area is very tiny. This year it was very difficult for me to place everything I had made for the show. I had a basket of things I kept rotating. My little ballerina ornaments went better than the fairies this year. They're extremely cute and a great buy for a recital gift. I think I'll make more to list in my etsy shop too. My sweater pocket pets did pretty good, but did even better at the show the week before this one. I had to rush around making more for this show. Both of my little hand sewn squirrels sold as well as one of my spirit dolls. I was thrilled that she found a home.

I've been enlarging the squirrel pattern to make bigger ones, but haven't yet had the time without little hands involved to stitch them together. They'll just have to wait though until fairies fly out the door for the gallery and my other special order batches. I'll probably start in August to really start pumping out the sweater animals and squirrels.

New Blues

I'm excited! Today is a supply shopping day. I get to go and source new blues for fairies. YAY! There's nothing better than poking around looking for new florals to use. Usually while I'm doing that I'm also looking to see what's new in the charms and beads to find what will work with the little fairy hands! Delicious new goods always make me happy and inspire the Muse to create more amazing fairies and art. I'll be posting pics when I get home of my haul!

The last two purple fairy orders

Here are two custom fairy orders I did recently. This little fairy was based on the little girl's dance costume from when she danced in the Nutcracker.
She was really fun to create and was a bit hit. I loved doing something so detailed. My fairies usually have a lot of little details to them, but sticking close to a photo image of a dance costume was a great challenge.

This one was to be a little "goth and edgie" It's kind of hard to turn a little flower fairy into an edgy goth piece..but she was thrilled with the way it turned out.
I'll be doing a large batch of sea/ocean colorway faires. Lots of lovely aquas, ocean blues, seafoam greens, ivory, and the like. I'll also be listing a few more that have been finished. A few really tropical colored fairies and some reds and pinks.

Cherry Love Sock Floral Pin Now on Etsy

I hand pieced this little pink and red sock floral pin. It was fun to figure out exactly how I needed to loop everything together to get a nice finished pin. I've got a few more ideas for some more, but I think I'm going to concentrate more on my silk tie floral pins than these sock ones. The silk tie pieces are so amazing when completed. I'll be listing the first I'm going to sell in the next few days. I need some down time to take a lot of new photos of new product, but little fingers (Val) don't allow for it.

Audrey is available for sale on etsy!

My little Audry is up for sale on my chelmorning etsy shop. I've also found Oskar. I think he decided he was going to do a bit of traveling. I couldn't find him for awhile. I looked EVERYWHERE for him in all my sales boxes and storage. I don't know where he had gone off to but he was gone for two years! So here he is again, back up for sale.
