Fairy for Hire?

Grrrrrrrr.......... am sat here - very uncomfortable - slipped on some steps this morning and came down very hard on the base of my back - had a couple of painkillers so if I start to ramble (more than usual- LOL) you'll know why!
Trouble is, jarring my spine like that has kicked off the neck again - so am in a sorry state..................actually am just ANNOYED at myself more than anything else! So just ignore me....!

So hands up  -who wishes they had one of these?????
Get in the QUEUE!!!!!!
Wouldn't you give absolutely ANYTHING to just be able to summon up this little star and have her whizz round the house.......... (and of course the craftie space!)

A spakling bathroom, towels neatly folded and not left on the floor, dining table free of clutter (mostly mine), kitchen floor gleaming - oh the list could go on and on... and on.....and I suppose she woujld even tidy away all the paper and card into colour co-ordinated piles!

Alas! Just a dream.... but if I find one I am willing to hire her out.... for a small fee!!!!!!!! (Well gotta buy more craft stuff somehow!) 

Mo's image coloured with promarkers and glittered, gold pearl stickles used on the tiara and I used a white gel pen on my new found friend's dress!
Opted not to go over the top with embellies - after all the whole object of the housework fairy is to leave you free of clutter - so instead gave her a suitable polish laden 'cloth' (secured with pearls as befits a fairy) and made her a yellow fluffy duster from a cocktail stick and a few maribou bits lying on the desk.

Challenges -
Digital Tuesday - Birthdays
My Time To Craft - Fairy Nice

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone! X

I'd love one of those Viv lol although I must confess I do have an ironing 'fairy'! Haven't ironed in about 3 years!! Hope the back & neck aren't too painful for too long.

Fab card, love the colours, not something I'd think about using but might now! xx

Shelby said...

Love how you've used that Authentique papers!!! I'd love to have this kind of fairy in my house instead of the one who magically makes messes and leaves socks, shoes, and everything else strewn about. Of course your coloring is wonderful and love the sparkles you've added. Hope your back/neck start feeling better soon.


Jackie said...
