“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.”

Valentine's Day crafts

As soon as Christmas is over my thoughts are on Valentine's Day.
Pink hearts, dusky purple skies, 
chocolate covered cherries, red glitter...
I love it!
I thought I was getting better....
I was painting, creating dollies, 
working on the gypsy wagon, 
 hanging ice cream (that's another post altogether)
So my last post was delayed.
These are a couple of the creations I was working on while I was stuck recuperating .

 Found this cage at Michael's.
I used ink from a stamp pad to paint it
then crepe papered the bird and added glitter, of course:)

 The carnival Lulu doll from Lisa Kettell 
never fails to inspire me.
I just added some heart pics, trim and stamps.

I'm still not 100% yet, but I'm getting there, and oh man am I tired of being sick!
Meanwhile, the shops are filling up with red & pink
and that makes me happy.

I hope everyone is doing fine and YOU'RE feeling happy and healthy
in your corner of the world.

See you soon.

A New Year

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
 I've been absent from my blog for so long it seems....we've had a bit of a struggle these past few months. Ive been ill since the end of October, with a cold that comes and goes, makes breathing quite difficult at times. Other things have also been going on that are both frightening and sad. 
What can I say, it was a rough year.
(A big thank you to the amazing lovelies that stuck around)
But I'm getting better, feeling hopeful and I'm anxious to get back into the land of blog once again.

 Lot's of people have an affirmation or word for the year,
But I can't decide on just one though..how about: 

or Glittery....
Maybe sweetness....?
oooh!I know!Magical-glittery-sweet-wonderful-fairyland!!
That's how I want my year to be.

Have you all picked your word or words?I'd love to hear them.

Happy New year to everyone, may this year be an improvement from last.
& may you achieve your own magical glittery sweetness!

See you soon,
