Captured Fairy - Matilda




Feb 15, 2011 Matilda was found in a bird house in my backyard.

I put her in a small jar with a bit of fake spider's web since she was used to a small area. I added a few flowers to make her smile.

Chocolate covered treats


This year I made chocolate covered Oreos for a few sick/shut people in the neighborhood. Everyone needs a little something on a holiday. I used regular chocolate oreos and the reverse ones. With vanilla cookie and chocolate filling. Yummy!

Dip them in candy chocolate and allow to dry for an hour. Package them up in an adorable hand made cookie box and deliver.

Oh so much fun!

Captured Fairy - Malinda



Feb. 14, 2011 Malinda was found under a blue mushroom in the forest.

Isn't she cute? This is a new fad going around on the message boards. Like everyone I had to give it a try.

It is very fun and exciting to see how these come together. The hardest thing was finding the vintage photos.

Step 1: Print out a vintage photo and cut it out. My photo was black and white. I colored it with chalk in pastel colors. Step 2: I used velum and a butterfly stamp for the wings. Added bling with stickles. Step 3: add moss or something similar to the bottom. Step 4: add twigs or branches for your fairy to be adhered to. I used a few leaves from my fake tree in the house. Also add a few flowers is you like. Step 5: Put her in the jar. I used a wide mouth mason jar so it was easy to put her in. Step 6: Decorate the back and top.

Simple as that. I hope this has sparked your imagination to create a fairy. Malinda now lives in my mom's house!

Calendar box




This project was inspired by Kathy at Paper Phenomenon.

I changed it a bit to make it my own style. I purchased a paper box from Hobby Lobby. Mainly cuz my box would not go together correctly. Not sure what I did wrong.

I printed the months out on my printer using excel on velum. I attached them with brads on each month's colors. That way I can change the velum sheets for next year. Smart wasn't I?
