Hello friends!  Today I have a wonderful surprise for you.  To start off your winter holiday with some extra angel-sparkle, Lenka Vodicka-Peredes, author of Forest Fairy Crafts, and I are teaming up for a tandem give-away.  But before we get to the give-away, please let me tell you about Lenka’s book.


Forest Fairy Crafts, C&T Publishing, 2013

Forest Fairy Crafts (C&T Publishing, 2013) is written with such love and so much joy that I get a happy glow every time I see the bright cover.  The gorgeous photos and fun, inspiring text make this book very inviting, especially for children. After spending a few minutes looking through the book, I personally couldn’t wait to start creating magic, “Forest Fairy” style.

Once I got started, it was fun to step out of my usual craft mode and try something new  (I was utterly charmed by the fairy hat shop, dress shop and hair studio!)  It was also wonderful to watch my 10 year old son design and customize his own wizard and warlock figures. If you get your hands on a copy of this book, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Now for the information about our giveaways… Here on my blog, I will be choosing randomly to give away this sparkling winter angel created by Lenka, while over at Lenka’s blog, she will be giving away a tiny pegdoll angel-ornament which I have created!  

To enter the giveaway for Lenka’s angel, just leave a comment below this post, and if you wish, please tell me about your favorite holiday ornament (mine is the little blue fellow you can see here in this post -- he lives tucked in my bookshelf to bring light all through the year because I cannot bear to put him away.) Also, please be sure your comment is linked to an email address so I can get in touch if you win.  (It’s as easy as that…) 

Comments for the giveaway will close Monday December 9th at 12:00 noon, Pacific Standard Time. A winner will be chosen via random drawing and announced at that time. 

If you’d like to see the angel I’ve created and have an opportunity to win it, please visit Lenka’s blog Forest Fairy Crafts.

  6. My favorite ornament is a little fairy popping out of an acorn cap and she has pinecone pieces for wings. She is very tiny and goes on the upper part of the tree.
    I would love to win this little fairy. Love both your books.

  7. I think these forest fairies could create some very fun mischief given the right circumstances and encouragement.

    My favourite ornament was a candy striped ribbon folding back and forth with an elf on the side poised with a brush and paint can to continue his work. The candy, elf and paint created something magical I can still feel just picturing it.

  8. When I was growing up, my favorite ornaments were the beaded bells we hung on our tree. Now that I am older, I favor the traditional German wooden ornaments handed down to me from my parents.
    Thanks for your giveaways!

  9. Wow! My kids have your book Margaret and we love it! They have made 7 or 8 little peg dolls from it. I spent a couple of hours online yesterday, researching what craft book to get them for Christmas. I wanted something similar to yours, and can you believe it, this is the one I ordered! I wish I'd waited until I read this blog post, I could have saved myself all that time! At least I know I made a good choice.

  10. Wow, I didn't know about this book! My daughter and I would love to make these together. I'll definitely pick up this one. I don't have a fave ornament, but maybe I can make one from this book! Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  14. Clare from Australia says they are so adorable. Hope the book will be released here soon. I think the wayout hippie fairies with the stripey leggings, hairdos to die for and colourful fluffy skirts are the best. I know a not so little person (anymore) who would think so too. Keep up the great work girlies.

  15. Oh they are so delightful! So happy to have found your blog! My favorite ornament is an egg that has been cut in half lengthwise and has a little scene inside. It's very fancy, and was my grandmothers. Brings joy whenever I see it.

  17. So my friend gave me a great ornament tradition idea that we're starting this year. We are going to make an angel for every person we love who has passed away…the holidays can be a sort of sad season when you are missing the people who meant the most to you, so finding a way to bring them in and remember them in a loving and positive way is my goal this holiday season. xo maureen

  18. Such a cool fairy! Hand made ornaments are the best. My favorite ornament is a homemade star made with extra extra glue and glitter.

  19. Beautiful fairy. My favorite ornament is one given to me by my brother when we were kids ( over 40 yrs ago) made from a thread spool (when they were wood) and glitter, paint and ribbon. Not sure what it is but that was never important. My baby brother will be 50 soon. ;)

  20. My what a beautiful fairy! I love your creations. My favourite ornament is a pair of little gold birds, back from the Christmas tree when I was little. A little old now (wink) but I love them.

  21. A little Santa made of a curl of cedar, a bit of wool and a red felt hat.
