Happy September!

H A P P Y      S E P T E M B E R!!

Honorella devotes herself to learning.  She knows that life is full of wonderful lessons.  Her philosophy that “wisdom shared is wisdom gained” makes her one of Knittington’s most beloved teachers.  September is her favorite month, full of the excitement that comes with preparing for a new school year, when every pupil is worth the effort.  Even the little squirrels in Knittington benefit from Honorella’s simple yet valuable instruction.

Until next time may happy days abound!

Annual June Wedding Party

Hello Friends,

I was at Bunny Cottage, and Vicki is preparing for the 3rd annual Wedding Party with Stephanie at Angelic Accents on Friday, June 8th.  So I thought it would be nice to join the fun.

In Knittington, even the fairies love weddings.

But I will admit that this would be my ‘dream wedding’ look.  Or at least one of them.

Thank you for visiting Leisure Lane, and remember, the Wedding Blog Party begins this Friday, June 8th.  We’ll be linking to Angelic Accents then.  Be sure to stop by and have some fun.  And “Thank you”, Stephanie, for hosting.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Knittington’s April Fairy

Who better to welcome in April here on Leisure Lane than Grace, Knittington’s own knitting fairy.  Read all about her in The Knittington Fairies’ Shop and Gallery.

I’ve been very busy lately nurturing a beautiful flower of faith…the seed planted many years ago began to bloom, and though crowded out by unseemly weeds of doubt for a long time, has suddenly blossomed.  Doubts,  uprooted with voracity, no longer have  a welcome in my beautiful garden.

About 5 years ago I produced a beautiful piece of art which symbolizes this very concept.  Hopefully soon I will be able to share it with you.

As I promised, here is another wonderful verse from the Irish blessing posted March 17th.  Truly something to meditate on, receive, and be thankful for the choice!

May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.

Life is a remarkable gift…Love it, Create it, Live it!

Thank you for visiting.   Until next time, may happy days abound.

When One Door Closes…

Good day, friends,

Well, today is the book-signing at a local shop.  I was prepared to bring the note cards and some other goodies I had available for sale.  However, I found out last weekend that my request for the day off was denied.  Though disappointment was my very first reaction (more like “hunh?” ), I made up my mind that instant to stay positive.  I decided that it was okay, and if that option was not available to me at this time another would present itself.  And because God is ever faithful,  the cards have been selling despite what initially seemed to be a setback.

Trust and faith are so important…but where one’s trust and faith are is more important.  So today I just finished putting the final touches on another two orders of the Christmas cards, and later I’ll be on my way to work, knowing in my heart that this is only for a season; a season which is coming to an end.  And a new, wonderful, extraordinary season is budding even as I speak.  Oh, what beautiful fruit, what glorious, kingdom fruit this season shall produce!

Enjoy the day, and until next time, may happy days abound.

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
