Craft Fairy - PaperArtsy Whimsy Challenge

'Spring is ever nearing, and now is the time all good Craft Fairies turn their back on the bright lights of the Big House and venture down the moonlit path to the rusty craft shed, leaving behind the family's warmth and chatter for some furtive down-time. As the fairy approaches the soft glow of the single bulb, she can just make out the delicate flowers that have miraculously survived the weight of the recent snow. She can feel a weight lifting too, as her own Marigolds fall from her arms and are replaced by golden gossamer-fine wings. She flies through the door, searching for her toadstool chair, smiling as she does so at the words on the door, which answer that oft asked question about the goings on in her beloved sanctuary. "Of course I talk to myself"'!

Thank you PaperArtsy for bringing the Challenge topic 'Whimsy' to drag me out of my black hole. I would like to enter my Craft Fairy and her Shed here. The fairy door is from The Works, and was painted with Toffee, Caramel, and Chocolate Pudding Frescos, with Rusty Car Infusions. The art doll is from Hot Picks HP1604, and the flowers are from Tracy Scott and the grass is from JoFy 31.

I do hope you are all well. Please keep in touch.
