The Fairies’ Dance


The fairies wouldn’t stop dancing around in my head this week…fairy-themed projects I couldn’t quite get out of my mind…

…I tried to stop them, I really tried!

“After Christmas”, I told them…”I’ve got too much to do!”

…decorating, gifts to finish, Christmas projects, baking……………..


They still wouldn’t stop.

The only way I’ve found to stop the dancing is to listen to the fairies…

…so I did.

A couple of little fairy projects made this weekend…

And then we have little cutie:


A pretty piece of vintage sheet music found online, beautiful paper, and some lovely flowers…that’s about all it takes to make this little fairy happy…

…maybe now I can finish decorating!


So don’t forget to listen to the fairies…maybe they’ll actually help me with all my decorating now!
