Fairytale Dollhouse…

I have an upcoming market at the end of October, and I am so incredibly excited! Twelve artists in a two-day event, with a huge raffle donating 100% of its proceeds to a local women’s shelter. All of the ladies are super talented, with painters, felters, and various crafters. But the most exciting part is, for the first time, I will get to meet my customers. I will be able to see their expressions while they look at my work, and will hopefully get plenty of comments on what they would like to see.

So I’m crafting, crafting, crafting. I want to bring as many fairy homes to the event as possible, mainly for the above feedback. I also wanted to create a fairly large focal point, in the from of a dollhouse. Here what I’ve made…

Every little girls dream…

My business started because of my daughter, but my first few customers were undeniably granny’s, purchasing for themselves. I have had a lot of eighty year olds tell me stories about childhood fairy villages, memories and feelings of childhood magic, and having troubles with their computer:) I assumed this was my target market, and it wasn’t until the first Christmas season that I discovered parents, aunts, and uncles buying for girl’s. Girl’s that love dollhouses, fairies, Coraline, and all things Tim Burton. Girl’s with rich imaginations, ripe for something other that the usual Toy R Us fare.. Here are two items pandering specifically to that audience…

This box was made for the light sleeper/true believer in mind! And because I’ve worried about how I will ever slip anything under my own poor sleeper’s pillow:) The box is first painted lavender, then brushed with purple glitter, and adorned with a fairy cameo and flowers. The shell within is secured to the lining, and is where a tiny tooth may be placed. https://www.etsy.com/listing/241618972/tooth

This surprise fairy dwelling looks like a pretty, feminine box that any girl would love to own. But the real gift is the detailed fairy home within, with three levels on the left hand side, and four on the left. I imagine a girl of six or seven displaying this creation in her bedroom, and then folding it like a suitcase and taking it to Grandma’s for the weekend. https://www.etsy.com/listing/241689453/box

Hopefully I have my finger on the pulse of every little girl’s dream…
