It will probably take a few posts to wean my artsy stuff away from this blog and to my art blog (Two Crow Feather Woman), so bear with me, please.

I feel I can post this here, anyway, because I am making strides toward fulfilling my New Year’s Resolutions. And that’s important. See, every year in our first staff meeting of the year, whoever is leading the staff meeting goes around the room and asks for everyone’s resolutions. About half of us make resolutions. 99% of that half make resolutions that have to do with health: eat better, lose weight, walk more, take up some form of physical exercise. And 1% (that would be ME) always makes a list of artistic goals.

And after I list my goals to my captive audience, the moderator quickly skips to the next person, and no one ever revisits my goals. they talk about the healthy ones and how to achieve them and we’re given a pep talk on fulfilling corporate world dreams.

It really doesn’t bother me: I find it amusing that no one quite knows how to address my weirdness. I’m 55 years old and they still don’t know where I fit into their world. I keep them on their toes.

I posted this year’s resolutions on New Year’s Day.

Today I am 1/3 of the way closer to fulfilling my #2 and #4 resolutions.


I finished one magic wand.




I finished (I think) one faerie house. I haven’t blogged about the faerie house, but I will be posting the full details on my other blog. The only reason I bring it up here is because this blog gets a whole lot more traffic than my (up-to-now) neglected art blog, and I want to shunt some of the traffic here over to there.

That’s because this blog is really for other subjects and that one is devoted entirely to the creative process.

P.S. – the Owl’s Faerie House is subject to the glue. If Gorilla Glue doesn’t hold mama owl on top of the tree, then she will be moved to the ground and I will have to post all new photos. That is also why I haven’t written a blog post on the Owl Faerie House on my other blog (yet). It’s all subject to glue…

Faerie House

When I log into WordPress, there’s always some statistic awaiting me, like what post I’ve written has had the most views in the past week (A Plethora of Creatures from my 2008 FaerieWorlds visit is nearly always at the top of the list). I can also see how many posts I have published (299 as of yesterday: that makes today’s post #300!) and I can tell what photo I am on (104/365, even though I have missed a day here and there).

In honor of those statistics, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite possessions. The creator of this possession is my very gifted faerie friend, Mary. You can see more of her creations at Nana’s Needle Nook (be sure to leave positive feedback for her!).

Here goes:

There was a hollow old log in the woods.

If you’re quiet and you sneak up to it from behind…

Tip toe around the side, past the bush and the ribbon ivy growing on the side of the house…

Or sneak around the other side, past the leafy window and the dangling lichens…

And you might surprise the wee folk living there!

They are always trying to escape out of the jar where I keep them imprisoned. They’re dangerous mischief makers, you know.

The ribbon creeper has beautiful button flowers.

Every detail is amazing and every time I look at it, I discover something “new” in the bark, the bushes, the ivy, the lichen and the windows.

There’s even a friendly little hedgehog hiding under a bush next to the front door.

It is a very nice place to go to have a cup of tea and relax. I go there often, so I should know.

Thank you, Mary.
