It has been a fantastic time for me lately. I came first in the CYA conference with a set of illustrations. I came third in the same event last year, so i was absolutely stunned with my win! A very happy fairy am i! I have also had some wondeful success with my writing. I have received two Highly commneded awards for my YA novel The Hidden Fey, and a commended award for the first nook in my chapter book series called Amazing Grace~The Hollow. You can follow my publishing journet at www.facebook.com/hollowseries . I am posting all my ups and downs with my journey into publishing. Pop over and like if you wish to follow.
Other news, My art work is in great demand for bok covers and personalised art which is very humbling. I thank all of you for your continued interest in my work.
Hugs wishes and fairy kisses
Kelly and faerie crystall

wow!! Tester one of the 12 x12's has been uploaded, with barely a fairy blooper.....
so i have have been in touch with my supplier, and the small format will now be availabale in a 8x8 format instead of 9x7. I am ok with this, even tho i have to resize the templates, as i kind of liked the square versin better heeheehee!!
So, the chosen testers of the small format are... taataaataaaadum...
8x8 up to 5 images......Paula.
8x8 6 to 10 images....... jess
8x8 images 16 plus is Natalie.
thank you all for being so interested in my work, and for your continued support. There will be many more personalized stories coming, so please come back and try again on the next one. If my chosen testers cant help out this time, please dont be worried, we will redraw with no hard feelings.
As a thank you, everyone that participated may purchase a gardenbaby image for $20 for one pic in two backgrounds. Thats for being so wonderful!! This is valid for only the people who commented on the blog prior to me choosing the testers.
have a magical day.................... xx xKels

Hello faerie friends! Are you excited. I am, though i do have a little bad news. I have had approx12 books made by my chosen company, but the last one had a lttle problem with the colouring , and also was not lined up properly. It was a factory produced item.. and not checked by the supplier. I can not have this happen again, and have decided to use another company to print. It is better quality,and each book handled and watched over carefully. It is also a tad dearer, but i will keep the prices as i have stated. Only problem is i have to change some sizing for the little book. I am waiting to hear back, the options are 8x8 (which is ok) or 8x11.. which is ok if it is landscape. SO bare with me for a few more days. See.. this is why we are doing the test run, and why you are getting it a lot cheaper. Until then, here are the lucky winners of the reduced rate on grandma's house. It is printing cost, plus half price imaging. Also, i will be doing a personalized cover and title page for you for free, and also a free jpg.... without text, for you to print at your own discretion! SO it will be like a poster! These images will NOT be for sale, so thats pretty special! And if i get famous.. wow... they may become collectors items heehehee!!
so for the (12 x12) up to 5 images, the lucky faerie is... jo
(12 x 12) 6 to 10 images is .......janice
and (12 x 12) 16 plus images is...........Fiona Ellis
Please email me at your earliest convenience to make sure you would still like to go ahead with this.
Enjoy your world fariy day celebrations!!

hugs wishes and fairy kisses my friends!
I have been very busy with my images/illustrations and orders.... and in less than a week i am on vacation!
I will be returning at the end of June, where i will be giving some lucky people the chance to have 'Grandma's House" personalized book made at nearly half price! I need to check time frames, and the whole process , so in exchange for being guinee pigs, 6 lucky people will get a very good deal. I will be looking 2 people that want a full book (16+ images) 2 people that want 6 to10 images and 2 people that want up to 5. There will be 2 differnt sizes available , a small and large format. Details coming soon. In the meantime, spread some fairy dust, prepare the photo's, and wait for more fairy news!
I hope to be able to get access to the internet whilst im away.
Fairy Crystall magic show/birthday parties and kindergaten performances are now being booked for mid sept onwards. email [email protected] or [email protected] , or look under the tabs to the left for more information.

How magical is this! My very first Blog. I am very excited at the soon to be released 'Grandma's House' personalized hard cover book!
It will be available in Hardcover, and you can add as many pictures as you like of your own little fairy! You may choose a character from the template, and replace with your child. Or completely change the whole cast. Imagine a story book that includes all the nieces and nephews... or maybe a mums group, or set of best friends!
Cost will vary on how many images you wish to include!
In other news, the countdown is on until i return to Australia! I am taking bookings now for birthday parties, and will be available from mid Oct. Parties include a 40 minute magic show, followed by facepainting. All children receive a fairy bag, and the birthday child will receive a small fairy gift.
many fairy kisses to you all!
