“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

New year and a giveaway

Happy New Year!
May this year is better than last.

I love the way an ordinary painting can be enhanced with added paper to make a skirt or dress.
The amazing artists at Faerie Enchantment and Maygreen Fairies, have inspired me to create this Frost Fairy.
The anniversary of my very first post was created on the 30th of January last year and if you leave a comment to let me know you were here you will be entered to win her.

I hope you have a great week-end, and thank you for such an inspiring year.


  1. A very Happy New Year to you.May your wishes for 2011 come true.
    Your frost fairy is stunning, I know I would love to see her on my wall.

  2. I came by to wish you a Happy New Year and stumbled onto a giveaway. I'm a bit late, but I hope your New Year was safe, fun, and sparkly. And I look forward to more great art in 2011. Happy New Year, dear.
