Book Fairies and Elves

My second set of book fairies and elves just arrived at our favorite independent bookstore, McLean & Eakin. I've made a little field journal for each of the lil' flower pixies and lil' forest elves from recycled paper from BeeDazzlesGifts on Etsy. Thanks, Bee! I'm so pleased to work with McLean & Eakin. They are a gem of northern Michigan, donating books to local schools and are truly the nicest people you will ever meet. We have been treated to the most wonderful authors and illustrators! My girls dressed in their fanciest clothes for the Fancy Nancy Tea Party this spring with author Jane O'Connor. We've laughed with Tony DiTerlizzi and Jon Scieszka and were amazed by the paper folding talents of Robert Sabuda. Our dear friend, photographer Pete Souza will be signing his book, The Rise of Barack Obama on August 14 from 4-6pm. Tickets are free, but required. Just call the bookstore if you are in the area. I picked up ours today.

WOW! thanks so much, Kim! Obviously I love your little faeries (have 3 of them!) but to see them holding books made with BeeDazzles owls is so AWESOME!! How incredibly sweet! You are the greatest :)
