Have you seen my fairy dust?




10.27.2009
I asked my daughter Abby to write a short story so that I could illustrate it for her daughter. The following day she sent this to me. The story is very special on many other counts also. She used the names Rae Nell & Wilson, which were her paternal grandparents that both passed away while I was pregnant for her. Her daughter is the fairy named Rae Nell in this story. My youngest daughter had the first boy in our family. He is wearing the outfit my mother in-law bought for me while I was pregnant with our first. In this story he is Wilson. Page four has all of the great grandchildren & the youngest grandchild of Rae Nell & Wilson. The dress in the window of *Nancie's Dress Shoppe* is the wedding dress that I made for Abby when she got married in October 2005.

A very special thanks to Susan for editing the story for us!

I will be having this printed in a hardcover 8x8 book at Artscow. If you haven't tried anything from there I would highly recommend giving it a try!

What an enchanting story! I see that you have passed along your creativity. What a beautiful family treasure you both have created. You inspire me so much and I was honored to read "Have you seen my fairy dust?" and think you and your girls are very special...just like you!
