I have been crafting these little winterland faeries. I want to fill a tree full of them.

While others in Halifax are going to see productions of Oliver and The Nutcracker, we went to see Franklin, as in the Turtle.

It was quite fun, as far as a concerts for toddlers goes. The babe sat on Mr.C's lap the entire time; enthralled. This may be the first and last time he sits still for over an hour.

Have a great week, friends.

Huge hugs!

    Oh how cute! You're an artist, my friend :)
    And kids concerts are sometimes even more magical for adults.

    Cute little boogers!! Cathy I hear Halifax is one of the prettiest towns on the East coast. Is this true?

    Devil Mood;
    Thank You!
    And you are right; we all loved it!

    Thanks; they take quite a bit of time, but are fun to make. I need more time, that's all!

    Thank you and yes, most certainly! (I am just glad you didn't say this year).

    Aren't they fun?! But I need more and the ground is now covered in snow!

    The babe loves to hug his older brother. He usually obliges, thankfully.

    It took many attempts before turning out like this, believe me. But thank you. :)

    I suppose I am biased, but yes, it is a wonderful city. The best time to come is in late June/early July or at the end of the summer/ early fall. I have posted photos on my blog of touristy things, but I wouldn't even know where to begin in the archives.

    Your tree is going to be beautiful with it covered in those faeries. Such detail...Love them.

    I love going to kids plays. I go to the Christmas mass where the children dress up and do a skit.

    Hope you have a wonderful day.

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    i love your fairies. and all your photos in this post. they are all happy and christmassy.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    I don't have the time; I make that as well ;)

    Oh, they will be forever the best of friends, I am certain...and even best friends fight every now and then, though, right!?

    I keep giving them away so I might have one left for my own tree!

    Thank You :)
    It is even more Christmassy now with our first snow; more photos coming soon, but there's a preview on flickr.

    Those faeries are just precious! You are so clever.

    And who doesn't love Franklin. My boys *still* watch Franklin videos sometimes.

    Don't know when you had the time but the faerie is great, what's he/she/it made from?!

    I make a trade wiht you: I'll send you a faery for something from the Weihnachtsmarkt!

    The body is made from bent pipe cleaners that I wound with thread. The head is a wooden knob that I painted the face onto. The skirt and wings are made from fake flowers that I pulled the petals from. The shirt is made from felt that I embroidered the decorations onto. The hair is wool yarn that I pulled apart and braided and the hat is an acorn top (which gives you an idea of scale). SHE is tiny!
    I actually got the idea from a book, so it is not my own concept. I don't make them all at once; I work on them in stages. Maybe a shirt tonight, a body tomorrow night...it's the kind of thing you can do after the kids are in bed and watching tv. But I've probably already said more than you were interested in knowing!

  1. Blogger PEA said:

    Ohhhhh your little faeries are just gorgeous!!! My mom used to make little angels using white flowers as their dresses. I got to see a Franklin play last summer at Canada's Wonderland! lol

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Wow, those are ADORABLE little faeries! Great job!

  1. Blogger Christopher said:

    Coolio!!! I want to hang out with that turtle!

  1. Blogger vani said:

  1. Blogger Berlinbound said:

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    I can't believe it's Thursday night already. I've been busy getting things ready for Christmas, working, going to more Christmas concerts, shopping.....I am going to make a nice long post tomorrow.
