The Fairy Child

I missed you guys!!!! Thank you so much for the Anniversary wishes! I got to spend the entirety of last week just hanging out with my fabulous husband! It was SO wonderful! We were supposed to head to Denver the day after Christmas, but our flight was canceled, so we were not able to go, as they couldn't get us on another flight until yesterday, but, alas, we decided to have a fun week together at home! It really was so great! We were bummed that we didn't get to see The Hubbums' parents, as planned, but we are going to make plans to do that soon...perhaps not in a snow storm. HA!

I actually took the week off from creating for the most part, too. I think it is good sometimes to just step back for a few days and let life inspire you and allow some ideas to pile up instead of just jumping right in. So, I let myself do that for the week, too. But, boy when I stepped back into my studio I was PRODUCTIVE! I had a great time!

This is the first of the projects I am excited to share with you!

Fairy Child

Fairy Child


Fairy Child was inspired by the White Glitter Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations. When I saw the challenge I knew I wanted to just COVER something with fabulous glitter, 'cause, well, that's just always a good plan. Just say'n. SO....I stumbled upon this old salt shaker in my studio, and the ideas began to form!

Fairy Child Close

The child (Tyler) and the wings (Monarch Wings) are both Scrolls Work stamps. I also overstamped the wings with the Braker stamp from Scrolls Work. I love layering stamped images!

Fairy Child Wing

Here you can see a close up of the wing stamped on patterned paper and overstamped with the Braker image.

I pieced together the clothing using the Circa 1934 line from Cosmo Cricket. I love how these papers worked so well for this!

Fairy Child

So, there you have The Fairy Child. Love? Yes. Love super lots? Totally. Just say'n.

AND...I just wanted to tell you guys about, THIS, too!!!!

Anyway, it's good to be back!
