Fairies in a Cage

Today I thought I would share with you a project I made a few months ago.
I figured I had better share it before Fall, just in case you wanted to try one for yourself.
I saw this idea in the Magnolia magazine and fell in love with it.
The one in the magazine, had more of a vintage feel to it.
Plus I added a door to my cage, as I wanted the fairies to get out if they wanted ;)
I stamped the fairies with those $1.50 stamps from Michael's. I get so much use out of those stamps.
I then coloured them in with my Copics. I also copied them on the back, so both sides are the same. I show more how to do that in the video.
A closer look at the fairies.
This is the back of the fairy on the swing. The swing even sways.
There is the video I made of my Fairies in a Cage. Hope you enjoy :)

Tonight Ashley made us dessert. We don't normally eat dessert. But if we do we try to only have it on Sunday's.
She baked the cake inside the actual waffle bowl. Then she added ice-cream and whipping cream on top. Yum.
 Then she added chocolate sauce on top of that. Super yummy.
Thankful Thursday:
1. Ashley wanted to do something sweet for the family.
2. For all the sweet, thoughtful comments on my blog.
3. For all the sweet, thoughtful comments on my projects on my YouTube channel.
4. Stamps... I forgot to show the stamps I purchased today ;)
5. My brother and his wife having their second baby boy yesterday...Baby Dustin was a little over 11 lbs, wow. Mommy and baby are doing fine.

What are you Thankful for today?

    That dessert looks YUMMY! I thought about licking my monitor but decided that wasn't a good idea.

  2. Your fairy display is absolutely gorgeous! (And how kind of you to allow them freedom!)

    The cake looks very tasty too.

  3. Ashley needs to come and stay with pea for awhile!!!! bring those baking skills. YUM! Now she made me want that!

  11. Love your fairy cage!!!.. And I'm glad to see you're having fun with those Copic Markers! I'm actually setting up (very gradually) to make my own fairies in jars, (putting my own little "beansie-spin" on them; but I don't have all the materials yet, as I am dangerously low on laces and trims! I'll get them going eventually! I am absolutely ELATED that my local Walmart is putting their fabric department back in!!!!! HOORAY!! (I've STILL been hot under the collar ALL THIS TIME, about them taking it out in the first place!).. Anyways, CONGRATULATIONS to all your family for the birth of little Baby Dustin!..

  13. Dessert looks awesome! The fairies and cage are beautiful!

  14. Your fairy cage is awesome. The dessert looks delicious!

  15. That looks sooooooooooooo good! It looks like an upscale version of when I used to teach cooking class (you don't really have to be the world's greatest cook to teach preschool cooking class), we used to make cake in ice cream cones. And then once you put the frosting, it looked like an ice cream cone.

    The fairy cage is very, very pretty!

  16. Oh my, that is a gorgeous cage. I love that you are leaving the door open... :) And yummy cake! That look decadent and delicious. Love the idea of personal cakes in waffle cones. Great idea.

  17. EEEK!! Cuteness!! And SUGAR OVERLOAD!!! And now I'm craving that. Bad Tracy. Bad.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
