Hello Strangers

Hi there friends of The Fairies Nest. I know that I've been much absent from the blog of late... I've been spending a LOT of time relearning how to cook after a recent diagnosis of gluten intolerance and I can tell you there has been a pretty sharp learning curve.  It's been particularly difficult for someone who loves to cook as much as I do. But since my health is so much better these days, I really can't complain too much. Besides, learning new things is supposed to help us stay young...right? At this rate I'll be a teenager before long...

But these days I'm back to making dolls again and here are a couple that I recently added to the shop..
a little merchild

and a couple of Flower Pixies

I'm finally making a dark Alice too. I know I've been talking about it for so long that it seemed like I never would, but I promise I started on her just today! Also in the works are several of the larger fairies, a large Rapunzel, and of course a smattering of assorted pixies...oh and since Spring will soon be here...Bunnies will have to be made. Wow that's a long list...I better get busy. So check back because I promise to be updating here on at least a weekly basis...see you soon!


  1. Oh I love the pixies! How do you make the wings?

  2. Thanks Corina! I have a wing tutorial which you can find here...

  3. I love the wings too... your tutorial is excellent.

  4. Huzzah for Bunnies! I can't wait to see them!

  5. The dolls are lovely... as usual. I think the mermaid is my favorite.

    As for gluten free, check out for info. She has lots of recipes and all sorts of other stuff. Good luck!

  6. I love the merchild!Her hair is glorious!
