Second Star Adventure Give-Away

My Creative Pixie dust has been flowing big time.  And I’m having way too much fun with it.  Good thing Prince Erik is out of town this week.  It gives me a chance to clean up all the saw-dust that’s laying around.

I know I’ve been promising you details on the gifts that some of the lucky participants in my Second Star Adventure will receive.  Well, although they are not finished, they are finished enough for me to show them to you.

For the Young and Young at Heart I have two Fairy Door’s.

Summer 706

And a Lucky Necklace.

Summer 720

The picture doesn’t do it justice.  The necklace and earrings are made of ebony wood (the good luck wood) by a local artesian.  I added a touch of my new-found love of my dremel tool and carved the Word ‘Believe’ along with the two stars.  The indentations are filled with Pixie Dust and sealed with a varnish.

The doors were labors of love.  I love them so much it will be hard to part with them.

The first is ‘The Fairy Dream’ Door.  Approximately 7 1/2 inches high and 7 inches wide.

Summer 711

Don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but I used the dremel tool to make the stones surrounding the door stand away from the wall.

Summer 709

And the vines are yet another of my favorite tools – The Wood Burner.

And my favorite word.

Summer 710

The other Door is the the ‘Cottage Kitchen’ Door.

Summer 713

The quote above the door, ‘There is nothing like a Dream to create the Future,’ by Victor Hugo. 

This is the door to my dream cottage.

Summer 716

See there’s even a visiting mouse hiding in the grass.  And my mother’s favorite flower waiting to greet any new visitors.

Summer 718

Can you see how I’m going to have a hard time parting with these?

But I am.  They will go to another Young at Heart Home.  Just sharing my imagination.

Want to know how to get a chance to win one of these?

Well first you have to become a participant in my Second Star Adventure.  Just click on the picture for more details. 

Second Star invite 

I’ll announce the winner on the 28th of August.  I’m giddy with excitement.  Hope you can join the fun.

Thank you so much for letting me know that I won the sweet little door. Funny thing is.....I didn't even remember reading about the giveaway....I was so excited to be able to play at Peter Pan that I guess I skipped that part. Either that or I'm a goose and it's a brand new day. I couldn't find your email address either. So please email me at turtle8603 at comcast dot net and I will send you my snail mail address. Thanks so much. I am gearing up for next year. Kids dressing up, yep something personal like. The Olde Bagg
