Well this list should round out what is in the works over the next month or so for advertising.

Faery World Magazine – inside front page, page listing and biography with photos. This magazine hit the news stands today and might I ad, it is a bit scary seeing yourself in print! Faery World Magazine

Faerie Magazine – ½ page advertisement. Will be out the beginning of October. Faerie Magazine

The Magical Times – Crafters’ Corner. Will be out next week. The Magical Times

Northern Journal – 1/8 page and service directory ads. Starting mid October. The Northern Journal

Etsy - I have started running the blitz of internal adversing here as well. Faerie Nursery Shop Front Etsy

My oh my, now I guess it is just a waiting game to see if what I have to offer is what YOU, yes YOU, are interested in :)

The In-between List of Things To Do!!

Flower Petal Faeries.....I need to make, lets see....minus the ones that I already listed on Etsy and the few I have sitting here waiting to be named...that leaves me....a mere 237 left to make!!

Teacup Nurseries....there are about 15 that need to be made with their matching faeries. As well, Alyssa is working on the 'how to' instructions for those that are sold as DIY kits. 

Faerie Seed Pod Babies....with all of the wonderful new coloured rose flower heads that came in the mail a week or so ago....need to get making a few of those as well.

What else could there be....

What?? Isn't that enough to do?? I'm sure lots of little things will sneak up on me that I will be saying, Oh Yeah, I have to do that too!!  

Next Project - Trinket Chests

Trinket Chests....approximately 70 of them need to now be taken apart and painted. Hubby has already branded them with the logo so that part is done!

Once all finished this project then it will be time to fill them with all of the wee little miniatures. 

Website - Updated for Purchasing

Shawn has completed the 'updated' website. Everything is now completely linked with Etsy for purchasing. And for those items already sold, the links take you to Flickr for more information. We pondered putting our own shopping cart on but for now, and this is just being honest, for now it is more economical to use Etsy. Maybe in time I will put my cart on the website and just use Etsy as a secondary way to purchase my items. I have had great feedback on the new look and how items are now listed. Thank you Shawn for all of the hard work :)

Magical Wooden Doors

As well, as mentioned on my Facebook page, all of my little magical wooden doors have now been completed. Just finished putting on the wee door knobs and the brass finishing nail for hanging decorations off of. My goal was to have 80 doors done but I ended up with only 78 completed. Thinking on it though, that's still a WHOLE lot of doors!! And I love the fact that they are all now branded with the company logo (Thank You Alyssa for the design). 

Mail Day .... Limited Editions Goodies :)

Mail day today at the nursery....and what fun goodies I received :)

I have been busy trying to finish up my ordering products for this year and so what comes in the mail is either last little bits that I need to finish off the trinkets chest (mainly due to being just the few items shy to complete all 80 of them).

I have also been having fun getting a few extra things for the 'Limited Editions' of the Faerie Suites. By the way... I LOVE that title. Don't ask me why I was awake at 4:00 a.m. the other morning but that is when the name came to me...and I LOVE IT! As each of these little doors truly are limited since I may never be able to get the products again. Guess that makes them pretty special too! Back on topic here, I was saying, ordering just the miniatures that I think will fit with the themes I already have created on Etsy and on the website.

For example....

The Teacher, I love the little stems on the apples :)

The Connoisseur, empty wine glasses and filled glasses of champagne :)

And Coffee Time! You will have your choice of glazed, glazed with sprinkles or an old fashioned.
