Sometimes a girl just needs a little fairy dust to help everything in life move towards that happy ending. Right now my daughter is really struggling and has been hospitalized for post-partum depression. I am taking care of her little baby – my sweet and adorable grandson. I am loving every minute with him, but I’m tired. He is two months old….and I have forgotten just how little sleep a new parent gets! I am also trying to help my daughter regain her footing and grow back the point where she can take care of herself and of him. Can you see why I need a little fairy dust to help along the way!!
I believe that things happen in life that make you smile with the synchronicity of it all. I participate in an Artists Trading Card Swap monthly. For those of you new to the ATC world – it’s kind of like trading baseball cards – except they are handmade little lovelies that you trade with artists around the globe! Most swaps have a them, and the March theme was Fairytales. I created a couple of cards with this them in mind. What a magical them for a girl who needs a little magic right now!
The second piece of synchronicity is that I am taking The Art of Surface Pattern and Design course and I learned how to make repeat patterns in photoshop of things. I decided to combine my ATC work and my Surface Pattern work and voila – we have a Fairy Pattern! I guess if I can create a little beauty along the way using the thoughts of love for my daughter and grandson, then maybe I am creating my own fairy dust and something magical will happen!
