Fairy Tales

For the Etsyblogger Carnival this week, I'm supposed to write about my favorite fairy tale and whether or not it has parallels to my life.

Well, I do love many Fairy Tales...but one of my favorite's is...

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.


I love how Alice falls down a rabbit hole into this fantasy world and that the creatures have unique human features! I definitely wouldn't say I live in a fantasy world...it's great but not exactly fantasy, tee hee...but sometimes I like to imagine that I do. Especially when I get going in the studio nowadays, I find myself creating whimsical things that are kind of fairy tale like. I've been playing here and there with different mixed media and am really loving adventuring out. Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE creating with PAPER but polymer clay & jewelry & feathers & paint & mod podge have been taking up a lot of my nights too, and that's only the tip of the iceberg ;-)

Although I haven't really shared any of my new creations here on my blog...I am planning on it and I've been wanting to get some things in the shop so hopefully that will happen soon.

So, here's the new Disney version of Alice and of course we have it...the girls love it!

Here's a link to a fun little quiz to determine which Alice in Wonderland character you are more like! I just took it and it said...

'You scored Alice! You are kind-hearted and curious and give yourself very good advice, but seldom follow it, which leads you into trouble. You always try to be courteous and polite, but you become cross when people speak in nonsense to you and scold them sharply.' Yep totally sounds like me, tee hee. Let me know which character you are if you take it.'

Here are a two items inspired by Alice in Wonderland from fellow Etsybloggers ~

Queen of Hearts Chocker necklace from 3RexesJewelry
Arabella and the Tomato Baby by AthenaWorkman

And I wanted to share some other Etsy links to some Alice creations too ~

Okay, I've shared some neat links and I could keep going but there are so many cute Alice inspired items on Etsy so I'll let you look for yourself.

Yes, that's a great fairy tale. I laughed when I read the carnival theme because my new blog makeover will be revealed very soon and I've changed my title to "Not Quite a Fairy Tale... Beauty and the little Beast." So I guess my real life is my favorite fairy tale or something like that!
