Darrie Thistledown and Elinore Dewgrass. Oh, and Ivan.

This is Darrie Thistledown sharing a snack with Ivan, a Siberian Wooleybottomed Swiftwinged Dragonfly.

Darrie's best friend Elinore Dewgrass is a pixie.  Darrie didn't even believe in pixies until Elinore knocked on her door earlier this spring asking if Darrie could loan her a bit of mushroom jam. 
 I was also working on a winter kit until Darrie and Elinore knocked on my door.  It has been snowing outside my window since yesterday and that has been tickling me to get back to work on it. We'll see. In the meantime I am working on a post office for the forest folk. Thanks for coming by and peeking at my previews. I'll have more in a bit.

How nice to see a miracle!!! I hope jam from cones it the same cooks? My daughter is sick bad, but she was very happy when he sees your amazing people. By the way, this summer she made up her own name-Shura Dragonfly. Apparently the same wanted to join the world of forest dwellers. Will wait for your beauty!

óóch... unbelievable. So adorable and fairy... Dear Lorie, when we will see all?
my little son when saw Elinore said: yeh mum, she is so pretty! She will be my bride! :)

Lorie said...


Darrie may be a distant relation since her red hair tells me she probably has Irish relatives.
Elinore says your son is adorable MaTilda. BTW have you read him Matilda?

maTilda said...

of course Lorie :) I read him.
favourite book for now is Peter Pan, stories about dragons and I think that really all stories for children by Roald Dahl.

I am so excited to see a new kit on coming soon. I get such joy from your designs and have enjoyed popping my sweet grandson into a page made with your charming papers and elements. Will be watching with anticipation!. CM

Thank you for your attention! Shura-Dragonfly finally recovered, But move her yet. And baby so waiting for the time when she again will jump and run. A little while and just in Day of its birth Shura will be as a "pickle".

Scrappin Gramma said...

Lorie, I felt guilty, have to tell you I have stalked your FB & blog everyday since you posted about Elinore Dewgrass. I just can't wait-- phew now I feel better. just sayin

Lorie said...

Thank you Scrappin Gramma, I feel better now too. Elinore is a sweety but she has been relentlessly pestering me for more friends and more places for her to play. *sigh* I have to put my foot down (carefully, I don't want to step on anyone) and wrap things up soon.
