Tutorial Coming Next Tuesday

 

Hello friends,

For next Teacup Tuesday, March 1st, I will be posting a tutorial for making a ‘cup of tea’ card similar to the one above.   They make great surprise gifts to send to someone.  It’s easy and fun to create, so don’t forget to stop by.

I like to collect blank note cards because I can make them unique and personal.  This one was made with one of my Knittington Fairy designs.  Hope to see you then.

Until next time, may happy days abound.

The Fairy Cards

Hello dear friends,

We  had a very pleasant Thanksgiving, and I hope all of you did, too.

I have been getting so many requests for the Knittington Fairy cards, that I decided to set up a page which will allow our visitors to order directly from me for the time being.  Click on the “Contact Me” link for more information.

Elenora,  is sending her Merry Christmas wishes, and she is now added to our Knittington Fairy page.  Her friend, Penelope will be following soon to bring Happy New Year wishes to one and all.

Thank  you for dropping by, and until next time, may happy days abound!

UPDATE:  PAYPAL IS NOW SET UP.  PLEASE STOP BY THE KNITTINGTON FAIRIES SHOP & GALLERY.

About the Knittington Fairies

Hello Friends,

I wanted to briefly share with you the beginnings of  the Knittington Fairies.  One evening in 2007 I had just finished making a card for someone, when suddenly I imagined a whimsical face with quirky hair frantically knitting a “Merry Christmas” message (it was close to Christmas).  As I began to sketch she took on a life of her own with fairy wings, a flowing dress and a star in her hair.  The next day I made a Thanksgiving fairy.

Before I knew it I had a fairy for every month of the year, and the Knittington Fairies were born.  It was as if each one whispered their name, and their personalities seemed to pop off the pages.

I will be adding more pictures as the blog develops, so keep checking back.  And I’ll keep you up to date on any new paintings, stories, or drawings that will be added to the neighborhood on Leisure Lane.

Until next time, may happy days abound.

Marianne
