This summer, I’ve made time for creating more fairy dwellings. My kids made their own collections of fairy homes as well. It is amazing how 10 hours can disappear as I glue bits of moss, cut and measure twigs, and sort through my bark collection for just the right piece. I make a glorious mess. My apron becomes speckled with stems, moss-covered blobs of glue, wire clippings, and perhaps even fairy dust. I stay up late creating and can’t wait to wake up early and begin working again. Here are photos of what keeps bringing me joy no matter how old I get.
