“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.”
― Roald Dahl

a few years ago, while at the bookstore, I happened to find an amazing book...I fell in love with the inspiring images and the whimsical projects.

I couldn't stop looking through it! Of course I purchased it.
I took it everywhere with me.... doctor's appointments, DMV, the airport to drop off Paul....any place that made me nervous or sad...it made me feel better, it made me feel safe somehow.
It wasn't until I looked up the author Lisa Kettell, that I decided to start a blog.
So you can imagine my absolute delight when she used some of my art...

in her newest printed zine Piddlestix!!!

I'm so, so excited!!!!!
If you get a chance please take a look at this kind-tireless-multi-talented-faerie-woman's blog...you will be completely enchanted!!

And please don't forget that in eleven days i'm having my 2 year blogiversary and giveaway!
