Half way there!

I have passed the half way mark of the #the100day project! Woo hoo! It's pretty crazy to think that I have created 50 fairies already, and just as crazy to think that I am going to do the same again.

Phoenix fairy

As the project progresses I am learning more and more and my fairies are getting better and better. Since, I have had a bit of press too, I feel the pressure to create something good each time!

Bee fairy

Of course I want to create good work, but I do have a bit of a time limit, especially trying to fit it in around my crazy baby!

What I am loving about this though is that I feel like I'm falling a little bit in love each time I create one. It is so much fun. 

Rabbit fairy

I am also buzzing with ideas and am thinking of creating a book with my best fairies in it. That is really exciting! There are a couple of websites that allow you to create your own book, I just need to learn how to do it. 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my latest fairies!
Don't forget to suggest a fairy for me!

Glitter and Earth in the press

So it has been an exciting week this week! We had a photographer come round to take some photos for an article in The Cornishman. I was a bit nervous, but it was actually a lot of fun and I am thrilled with the results.

We had lots of bubbles to play with and Tabitha spent the rest of the day waving her wand!

I had hoped to do a Cottingley inspired photo shoot outside and so I drew some fairies and cut them out. However it was really windy on Tuesday and so we decided todo it indoors instead!

In bloom

This time of year is beautiful in Cornwall. The flowers keep opening up, one by one, and before you know it, summer is here!

It's also relatively quiet down here at the moment, so you can find yourself alone on a beach and enjoy the wildness. The sea pinks in the photo are my favourite Cornish flower - they look like little fairy bouquets!

I've just finished these pictures and I will take them to the Roundhouse and Casptan Gallery later this week. It's a really gorgeous gallery and I'm so pleased to be part of it.

I'm looking forward to creating lots more work for them and spreading my fairy magic wherever it is needed.
