The Props

Today was spent rummaging around my faerie nursery in order to find things to put into The Clay Potters nursery. With all of the miniatures I have this was actually quite an easy and fun task.

As I mentioned on my first set of photos of me, Faerie Amma, that I loved my ladybug print but figured it was just way tooooo busy for a backdrop. So off I went to the internet to try to find miniature frames. I managed to find some really fantastic ways to make your own frame. I am extremely pleased in my final result and what a perfect addition to the miniature nursery.


And flowers! These little vases are actually drawer pulls!! 
All I had to do was sand down the bottoms so they could stand up. How simple. 

And shelving units. I found this idea as well. 
All it is, is wooden skewers put through wooden buttons and pony beads. Again, how simple. 

These little vases I had just sitting in a baggie buried deep in a box of knick knacks 
and yet they are the just the right size. 
Entry way goodies or I guess for if it ever happens to rain in the nursery (I sure hope not!)

             As the nursery is situated in the north, here are some of the veggies and fruits that can 
be grown up here in our short summers. I also found some great gardening tools as well. 

A few extra things...not sure if I will use them but going to put 
them into the nursery prop box just in case. 

Now these are actually props for the swords and spears. 
Not sure if they are going to be painted or not.

The Clay Potters??

Who are The Clay Potters?

Why, YOU and I are The Clay Potters!!

My brand new line of standing-up faeries will now become The Clay Potters.

Everyone who wants to join is welcome, mind you the Faeries do insist on me telling you that there are a few simple things you must do firstly.

1. Chose a name...that sounds simple enough to me. Perhaps a favourite nickname from when you were little? Perhaps your pets name? Perhaps you just love your own name and you want to use that! The main reason behind choosing a new name is so that I (and the Faeries) can address you without any worries of sharing too much personal information here on the world wide web.

2. Decide who you are...this one is a bit tougher but I found a wonderful guide that you can use Faerie Groups (a massive thank you to the designer Kelley Heckart). So look at who you feel you are or want to be.

3. Let the Faeries know your top 3 favourite colours.

4. We need to know at least 2 of your favourite things to do. Maybe you are a knitter, a hockey fan, an archer, a baker...the list is endless.

5. Send us an e-mail to:

With all of this wonderful information, I, Faerie Amma will make you a Faerie (female/male). This new Clay Potter faerie will stay here in the nursery with the other faeries as a chance for us to get to know them.

There will be brief updates on Facebook and Twitter. The Website will host all of the photos and news updates. The main story line will be told here on the Blog.

Oops...did I say 'story line'? Well the whole point of letting The Clay Potters get into mischief and mayhem is for me to start a faerie tale book. I will record what is happening here in the nursery and share it here with YOU are the characters.

If you have any suggestions, ideas or questions for The Clay Potters or for me please do not keep them to yourself as I will need all the help I can get.

I look forward to creating The Clay Potters and for you get to know them too.

And the Mystery Continues?

A bit a go, I had a mishap with the nursery. Yes, actually I think you could call it a complete disaster!!

It seems that when left alone too long....well let's just say, Faeries will be Faeries. Figure that should sum everything up just nicely.

This was a posting that I made on my Facebook page Faerie Nursery Facebook

Oh Oh!! The Faerie Nursery has been found in such a disarray that I don't even know where to start! There seems to be faerie dust EVERYWHERE! Even the dust bunnies are covered in faerie dust! How does that happen?? So while having to make some rhyme or reason out of everything that had happened, I heard the little faeries laughing and they were calling me the strangest name? Once they finally calmed down I was able to figure out what they were trying to say. According to the faeries, they have decided that I am to be blessed with a new name. It was actually quite the event....with faerie dust everywhere (I feel so bad...I sneezed half way through...I couldn't help myself...thankfully they just giggled even more!), I am now to introduce myself as Faerie Amma. So to all of my wonderful the new me... Faerie Amma :)

Well since then...there has been no stopping these wee little critters from doing just what they want to do! I have no say in anything anymore. They have COMPLETELY taken over. 

Rumour has it now that there is going to be a new group of friends joining us here at the nursery? Now, granted this has only been whispers and mumblings but I, myself believe it to be true. 

The Faeries have decided that it is time to start a book on their adventures that they have been having (and will have....I can't imagine what else they could possibly get into). So with that being said, the new faeries should be arriving I figure before Christmas! I know, how could that be? With the holiday season being as busy as it can I get ready for even MORE guests in the nursery?

So now I have done what I have been told to do.....the mystery still alludes me but each day brings more information to light. As I find out more...I will stay in touch and let you know what I find out.

As Seen In??

I have had my web designer put in a few new sections on the website!   Faerie Nursery

I had this daunting feeling that no one would ever know if my website was ever active or not the way it had been set up. Unless you followed each and every faerie that I ever posted onto the site through Etsy or Flickr it would look like my website was never updated or used and that is not a good thing!

I did have my Twitter feed right on the front page but I do know some people do not use Twitter or wouldn't even know to look on the right hand side of the page for updates. Unfortunately that is where a lot of websites keep their advertisement sections...not in my was actually the only way viewers could see if I was active or not.

So...the new stuff..

We now have an ongoing NEWS section right on the front page. I will try my best to keep this updated every two weeks or so. Figured what better way to let people know what was going on in the nursery if they weren't added on Facebook or Twitter. Shawn has just been awesome with all of his suggestions and assistance. As this will be a server requirement and one that I will not be able to update on my own...he has again...said that he will update as I send him my new news.

Subject Titles....done in a clean white colour while all of my news is done is the softer grey tone to allow easier reading and not such a strain on the eyes.

I have also now added just under the Twitter feed where you can physically see my products and where I have advertised. I thought that this might help verify my commitment to my little company. I will continue to advertise in some of these magazines and have a few new exciting ideas on where to advertise next in the New Year.

I hope that you will each check out the website for updated news and also to look into each category of faeries, nurseries and suites as I am always adding new product.
