"Make a wish for your fairy jar" Swap Finally Recieved

I finally received a fairy jar. My original partner flaked on me but as you can see an angel stepped in and "angelled" this swap. I love the jar and book she sent, they inspire me to create a wonderful jar the next time I go to make one. Really the possibilities are endless.

My WireTree

Not too long ago I took a class on twisting wire into trees. I decided to make a willow tree, now the completed tree is currently in the center of my Christmas village.
Making this tree took a lot of time and arm strength, but I am pleased with the results and I hope to make another one when I have the wire again.

Photoshop Fun

I decided to have a little fun on Photoshop. I had two projects in mind when I started. For the first one, I wanted to do a tribute to the Frog Prince. When I read the Brothers Grimm version, there was a line that the frog used several times before he was admitted to the castle. I wanted to use that line and this is what I came up with, blending photos and illustrations done by other people.
The second project I had in mind was for a tribute to "The Nutcracker" more specifically the production done by the Royal Ballet in London. I had seen the show on BBC and fell in love with it. Once again the photos used was not my own, also the wording in the background came from BBC/PBS to describe the storyline of the ballet.I had a lot of fun making these and I love how they came out.

Why Vixen?

Just for fun I did this quiz and this is what I had gotten, though I don't think it is right because I am not sexy and Sultry.

You Are Vixen
Sexy and sultry, you're the one all the other reindeer dream about.

Why You're Naughty: That fur pulling spat you got into with Dancer over Santa.

Why You're Nice: Because even when you're nice, you're still delightfully naughty!
