Given that this was the year she learned to read, and also the year she wanted a fairy birthday party, it just seemed too perfectly apropos. It was also the year she added blue to the list of her favorite colors, which are, in order of her adding them: pink, red, purple, gold, silver, blue!
I feel I should note that Snelling actually calls her little creatures poppets.
And this is the poppet I didn't buy for my garden this year. Maybe next year. If I make a lot of art and sell it in the interim. :-)
