I hadn't wanted to show Spite until I was sure she was going to stick around this time. It might seem like magic that here I showed her off after just starting to sculpt her last week and now she is off to be put into a mold.
But actually this is the third time I have started her and yes, she would laugh at me and then suddenly disappear. After all, often I start only with an inspiration and wait for what character I am working on to show up.
My lesson? I know that "in Spite" of all the challenges and lessons I have learned with the Fae teaching me how to sculpt, the greatest lesson is to keep my sense of humor. To be willing to laugh and look for the lighter side of life. After all, that is the main job of a fairy is to teach us to play with our inner child.
