1  Fairy Tour 2014 in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: July 05, 2014 11:22:43 PM
For the past 4 years I've built fairy houses on my property and people come and wander and poke and look. Here are photos from this years set up...

We have a little mailbox attached to an old maple tree. The fairies leave personalized mail for the kiddos that visit.

There is always extra smudged mail at the house so no kids are disappointed if there isn't mail waiting for them.

These little cocooned babies were a BIG hit with the kids who visited today. They were sleeping quietly in old mossy tree stumps.

2  A Quiet Hare Altered Spool in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: July 01, 2014 11:05:25 AM
I created this spool for Cackle in the altered spool swap.

The trims and leaves are from Tresors de Luxe and the base is a 2" Wooden Spools and 3" Candlestick Holder from Alpha Stamps. I made the hare from paperclay Smiley

I think we can stop this swap and put a halt to further spool swaps because cackle has sent me the most perfect spool in the whole of crafty swapdom. Are you ready to lose your mind?

Seriously? Seriously! It's made of silver and is absolutely stunning. I believe it just might be one of the most beautiful things I own. I LOVE it. LOVE it! Really I should just shut the hell up because I'll just gush and gush all night about this tiny amazing work of art. It's like magic in my hands Smiley Thank you cackle! <3

4  Squadron Commander Lord Flashheart *Woof!* in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: June 14, 2014 02:39:01 PM
I was absolutely gutted and completely heartbroken when Rik Mayall died last week. I'd had a half finished doll sitting around my studio for two years, he started out as a wrestler, was going to be a swashbuckler, but after Rik's death I knew immediately he was going to be Squadron Commander Lord Flashheart from Blackadder.

"Mind if I use your phone? If word gets out I'm missing, five hundred girls will kill themselves. And I wouldn't want them on my conscience, not when they ought to be on my *face*! Hello? Cancel the state funeral, tell the king to stop blubbing, Flash is not dead! I simply ran out of juice! And before five hundred girls all go 'oh, what's the point in living any more?' I'm talking about petrol! Woof! Send someone along to pick me up. General Melchett's driver will do, she hangs round with a big knob so she'll be used to a fellow like me. Woof!"

Flashheart wasn't my favourite Mayall character, but he'll be appropriate for snuggling and consoling my soppy tears while I watch the Young Ones or Bottom or Drop Dead Fred  Cry

5  Hedwig-ish Harry Potter Mail Owl! in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: June 01, 2014 05:21:35 PM
I think that this is the greatest 5 minute craft in the history of the world! I saw a plastic owl at the dollar and I KNEW it was really a mail owl. A quick coat of white paint, a print out Harry's Hogwarts letter and BAM! in 5 minutes you've got yourself a mail owl!

I know he's not EXACTLY like Hedwig, but I think for the $2 and 5 minutes this took he's a pretty close relative Smiley

Here's what he looked like before...

7  Godefroy's Books in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: May 27, 2014 11:12:16 AM
When I was asked if I'd like to participate in a local fundraiser this year by getting my fairy on I gave an enthusiastic YES! Inspired by the Urban Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor, Horizons.ca is adding fairy stops on their Annual Home and Garden Tour. I've created a little bookshop for book loving fairies (which really means all of them, because all fairies love books, even goblins) which will be displayed inside a local independent book shop.

The piece measures around 11" x 8.5"... the size of a regular sheet of paper. The base is a book shaped box that someone just happened to give to me recently. Timing is everything!

The shop window with "Godefroy's New, Used & Rare Books ~Specializing in fairy tales~"

A peek through the window...

The tiny sign can be turned to say "Open".

I made over 470 of those little books, about half made it into the shop. They all open. I had planned to leave them loose so that they could be moved around... but realized that was probably unrealistic and they'd get knocked around and fall over.

I've created the space so that wee faux tealights can be easily placed inside to flicker in the windows.

Inside there are portraits of a few of the authors that I love dearly: JK Rowling, Roald Dahl, Margaret Atwood, Hans Christian Andersen, Edward Gorey, Lewis Carroll, Maurice Sendak, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Munsch and Beatrix Potter can all be found inside.

And that's it!

8  Wee Mad Hatter Hats with bonus "This Way/That Way" signpost in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Knickertwist on: May 23, 2014 06:36:50 AM
I'm planning a Mad Hatter's Tea Party this summer so when I was charged with creating a 'birthday party' themed something for Petaloo (who make the MOST amazing paper flowers BTW) I thought I'd get a head start and make some little Mad Hatter Hats!

AND I made a little 'This Way/That Way' sign to go along with them.

AND if you want to make your own there's a downloadable template on my blog HERE
