Series Door Printable and Monthly Faerie Story – January Edition

The Faerie Insiders This post has been 9 months in the planning.  A brand new year seems like the perfect time to take the leap and start my childrens story series. I created a new Opt-in Library called the Faerie Insider’s Library.   Every month I will add a letter size printable of a door, with a corresponding child’s story that you can frame or place in a binder.  If  you have already joined the Faerie…

An hour at the grocery store and the dollar store.  Another half hour to toss it all together…

Tooth Fairy Bed and Printable

One of a Kind Tooth Fairy Keepsake Sewing this little blanket made me wonder about the history of the tooth fairy.  She certainly existed when I was a little one, wiggling my tooth out dreaming of the loot I would haul in.  I was very surprised to find out that she is a fairly new 20th century North American concept.  She does not have a long tradition and its only in recent years that  children have been…

Crochet Faerie Wands

My youngest grand daughter loves to play with dolls.  She carries one with her everywhere.  She plays dressup, feedings, rocks her baby, goes for walks with her own mini stroller.  I was able to purchase her various outfits, a high chair, even a horse for her doll, but no where could I locate a…
