Roseberry - Fairy of Crabtree Forest

As usual, I've been acting out one of the scenes for one of my stories. I was trying to see how the fairy would land if she fell from a height, so I stood on a chair and threw her in the air. Trouble is, she landed on the ceiling fan instead, so I decided to take some photos and videos. LOL. Here she is:

Roseberry - Fairy of Crabtree Forest. She's one of the main characters in my story, Velvet Ball and the Broken Fairy.

Here's Roseberry learning to fly on a ceiling fan. There are videos as well as photos. Click on the videos to see her spin. (Children, please don't try this as it can be very dangerous. You could get hurt!)

New Contest at The Bookshelf Muse

Hey, there's a new contest over at The Bookshelf Muse. Great prizes. I'd love to win one. Getting mentored by Angela Ackeman. Wow! After she critiqued three chapters of one of my stories, it changeds it for the better. She suggested I mean up one of my characters. Now my story rocks!

I'll definitely enter that!

Spring has Sprung.

I love spring. It means fledglings, baby animals and ducklings, wading in our billabong. Here's our local wood ducks that we named Bonnie and Clyde because they regularly raid our veggie patch.

Last year they had five ducklings, but only one survived. Unfortunately, the others must have been taken by foxes or raptors, so this year, I bought some duckling food from the pet shop. I’m so glad I did because Bonnie and Clyde had seven babies this year. Here's a picture of the beautiful little things, plus a video. Just click to watch the movie.

My Drawings In Progress

Okay, so I'm still practicing my drawings. I've just drawn these scenes for some of the scenes in my story STAR CROSSED RASCALS. I still have to add some background, but here's my first go.

Star Crossed Rascals

Yay! I've finally finished writing, and editing my latest story:
STAR CROSSED RASCALS, and boy, did I have fun writing it. This was the very first story I actually put to paper. I've completed other stories since, but I kept going back to this one. The reason it's so dear to my heart is because it started out as my childhood memoirs, particularly the bubblegum episode. However, I decided to turn it into a fictitious children's story instead, and it grew from there. Let's face it, all kids love bubblegum, but maybe not quite as much as my characters, Pollyweena Grubble and Gertie McDougal.

Teehee. Now, I'm writing the sequel.
