I guess I have been making faeries for almost two years now. I really was only making them with words on them, like fire, earth, friends, hope, etc.
It has really been a while since I have made a significant amount of faeries. Mostly I think because we switched glass suppliers and I was no longer using moretti Italian glass, which is what all the murrini words are. Just about a year ago we switched to bullseye glass, which is a different COE and not compatible with my moretti words.
So, yes it can be said maybe it was laziness on my part to not pull out the moretti glass and make some more faeries, or more laziness that I didn’t try to make my own bullseye words, as I have been having Greg do it in the past. He does them much faster and more efficient than I can. I know, practice, practice, practice. However, I think we have already established that I am a bit of a cheater when murrini is involved. Yet, I couldn’t ask Greg to make me more words in Bullseye, when I had a perfectly good stock of them in moretti, now could I?
So this leads me to my newest faeries, which I am very excited about. They are my Garden Faeries. I have only listed one so far on ebay, and here she is: The Sunflower Faery.
I do have another one that will go up in a few days, The Iris Faery, and have ideas for another one, the Daffodil Faery. I have already told Greg to make me flowers (there I go cheating again), but whatever he makes I am sure he will use, if he does make them that is.
