Ode to the Fower Flaeries…here are a few projects to get your mind in a magical place. The Fower Flaeries in the shoppe are awaiting new homes to play and dream in. Use them in your mixed-media art, card and tag making, or as sweet little ornaments to adorn your home. I would love to see what you create with these sweet whimsical souls…won’t you share your art with me?!
“I cannot see fairies. I dream them. There is no fairy can hide from me; I keep on dreaming till I find him:
There you are, Primrose! I see you, Black Wing!”
