While Meen was hopping around the palace, Griselda was digging through the books in her library at the mansion. The colorful glo-bug lights and decorated tree certainly were putting her in the mood to curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book. What better place to read the stories of old and enjoy a nice cup of tea?
"Maybe there was something to this zooming stuff that the others were gossiping about," she thought. Griselda gathered up her letter from Mrs. Claus with the Coffee Cake Muffin Recipe and decided that a visit to Parsley just might be the thing to do. "Nothing like reaching out to friends far and near... or was that dear (*smiling*) for the holidays".
As Granny continued to listen she found that when her PEE-C arrived, she was going to need to connect to something called a Zoom. There she would find a portal where she could cook and talk with Parsley just like she was in her kitchen.
So, as Granny and Parsley dive into their cook books and herbs, let me share a recipe or two from them for this holiday season.

GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE PUMPKIN PIE RECIPIE (oops - Recipe)
I start a character and then struggle with them as sometimes something doesn't seem right. The clay starts drying out or for whatever reason, the character alludes me. I only know that there is a lesson within each of my sculpted pieces and it is for me to discover.
Patience is definitely one of my requirements mixed in with a whole lot of curiosity. Did I say it takes up to three months to make a doll? Actually, at times when I am challenging myself to create something new, it can even take longer. Spite is one of these.
As Spite shared her story with me and I discovered what makes her laugh, she finally revealed more of herself. I would tell myself if I learned this one thing - like how to balance the head or find the right depth of clay to work with, then everything would fall into place. But really... did it have to take this long for me to pick up what I needed to know? Or by having to start a head over and over again. Once the head is destroyed, I can never reproduce it exactly the same again. It always comes in slightly different. That is the uniqueness of a one-of-a-kind doll.
Welcome to my blog. This is where I will reveal the magic of my Fae and their stories and share with you some of the success and pitfalls through the journey of doll making, sculpting, and other crafts that all come back to my dolls in many ways.
