There was a time in the summer ( I think) that I signed up for a couple of crafty swaps because I missed my crafty FRIENDS so much! I haven't done any stamping or paper crafting, (I mean for-real-paper-crafting), in a LONG time. I like it, I'm not the greatest at it, and I can get totally overwhelmed at the amount of STUFF you can buy to make a card or scrapbook page out of. It's crazy the things you can do to decorate a piece of paper! There is absolutely no end to amount of things you can do.
Regardless, I do love all things creative and enjoy trying to make something out of nothing. So when this idea of paper dolls and fairies came up I was pretty hooked, (Thank you, Susan)! Sweet P. and I had a lovely time stamping out dollies and figuring out how to color them and make their clothes. But then I had to figure out what exactly they were going to be. They had to have a function of some sort. So mine became booklists that I suppose could also be used as a bookmark...? They were fun to make and I kind of liked how they looked in the end. I only wish I had made one to keep!
The other swap was to be for something one could use in a fairy garden. Well, a fairy would need a reading nook, right? So we put together a tiny nest of moss and crocheted tiny fairy blankets to warm the tiny fairy feet.... And I sincerely hope that if any little fairies are gracing the Hearth Room with their tiny presence, that they find comfort in our attempt to furnish them! Just a note: To date, I have not seen the covers at all disheveled.
