Baby fairy,MUD & GRANDSONS

This is a picture of a sleeping baby fairy I'm doing ,she still needs her ears and hands. Can't make up my mind on the hands yet.The picture not to great because of all the glitter she has on.Her wings are made of paper, face and feet are paper clay.Her round body is a paper pumpkin. I'm also doing an elderly to watch after her.

This is a picture of the two grandson Dominic and Harrison.They went out to play and I told them not to get in the "MUD".Now who in there right mind would tell a 7 & 6 Yr old
not to get in the mud.Will they came in cover in mud.Here they are in the muddy back- hoe bucket. But don't the look so sweet? Will today they went and I didn't tell them that,but Harrison came in and said you can't trust me , he the 6y old .We never know what he going to say.And right now they got my son out there building afire in the fire pit.Boy can the twist there uncle and papa around there fingers,I'm the one that also say NO!

In the snowman swap from Kai she sent me a small book of Christmas. In it Crafts & Tips for Christmas 1)the number one hint to keep in mind is take it easy. Don't over e
extend yourself, and try to enjoy the Holiday's season.

2)Make a list of expectations for the holiday season and hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised.

3)Think about who you want to buy presents for .me, me, me me, just joking. Make a list and start thinking about the type of gifts you want to get .Sometime the smallest thing, like cards can mean the most to show others you care.

4)If you are a baker, choose few recipes and invite friends and family to help you out in the kitchen .If you don't bake buy some festive foods at the bakery or grocery store but make a list first of what you want before you head outside.

5)Have a look at holiday decorations that are in their usual box and determine whether or not they belong in the trash can or on /around the house If you need new ones go get some or better yet make them with friends and family.

More tips to comelater.

How to Counteract a spell
There nothing worse than being coursed !Here are afew simple ways to countact a nasty spell,even if you're the one who's been bewitched.
1) Place a penny in your pillow case,add a piece of birch and a sprig of willow. Recite the following charm for a week each night before you go to bed and the curse will be disappear:
A lucky penny in my pillow,
A piece of birch bark and some willow.
I give these gifts to you my friend,
So that this curse on me may end.

2)With adult supervision ,take a wax figure of the witch or wizard who cast the spell and melt it in a pot.Dig a hole in the dirt at least two feet deep and pour in hot wax. Bury it there and cover the fresh earth with mint and sage.

3)If you are fortunate enough to be there when the curse is cast upon you, extend one arm , spead all five fingers in front of your enemy's face and shout, "REVERSE THE CURSE!" The spell will bounce right off your hand and back onto the one who perfoformed it.


This delicious fruity drink will give you a magical boost on those cold winter nights. While the caldron can be substituted with a regular pot , you may find the brew loses some of it;s potency. For a little extra zip, add a few drops of moon water just before serving.

3 cups apple cider ,1 cupcranberry juicie ,1 stick cinnamon, 1 tsp. whole cloves 1 tlbsp.honey
1) Put all ingredients in a small caublronon the stove.

2)Heat well ,but do not boil.

3)Strain out cloves and cinnamon stick.

4) Serve hot in mugs,(Goes very well with ginger ghost.)
