Whimsy Wednesday & Fini Friday! Faerie Tales!

Hello Everyone! 
Welcome to Whimsy Wednesday! 
This post is going to serve double-duty as the Whimsy Wednesday and Fini Friday post, since I'm in the midst of shows and show prep both last weekend and this weekend! 
Yes! That's right! This weekend I'll be at the Saint Paul Art Crawl!! 
Specifically, I'll be on the 3rd Floor Atrium of the Lowertown Lofts! 

So what do I have to show you today? You might remember last Friday and the post about the emerald green pen that was still growing into completion...I am pleased to let you know that it is done! 
Take a gander! 
Title: Faerie Tales 
Ingredients: fine and lead-free pewter, Blue Mystique Mood bead, glass, beadable pen.
The gorgeous focal bead is hand-cast in fine pewter by a husband and wife studio team in South Carolina (Green Girl Studios). The design was created by the husband, who mentioned that his inspiration for it stemmed from many of the symbols and images surrounding the wise Mystics in the movieThe Dark Crystal! Isn't that awesome?! 
The second nifty thing I have to show you is a new batch of Faerie-inspired creations! These are still growing, but the idea is that these are bottles filled with various varieties of faerie dust, from the Sprite Creations Faerie Apothecary! 
Ingredients: Faerie Dust, Glass, Cork.
These are fun, little creations for me to craft and enables me to play with glitter!!! Ahem! Faerie Dust!
I hope those who adopt them have as much fun with them as I do! 
As you can see, these are still growing, as they need tags or labels. 
So, really, both of these creations or creation sets fall under the Whimsy and the Fini theme! The pen (with the Mood bead) is both Whimsical and now complete and the Faerie Dust Bottles are surely chock-full of Whimsy and still growing! 

Just FYI: The Art Crawl runs from Friday through Sunday, so there is plenty of time to see us if you're in the area! 
We hope to see you there! 


  1. Sorry we didn't crawl your way last weekend. I hope traffic was good.

  2. Hey Sharon!!
    Thanks for stopping by here!!
    It would have been great to see you, but no worries! It was my best show yet and such a joy to be in such a beautiful space with fabulous artsy folk! I think you'd be right at home!
    Maybe next time?
