September 24, 2013. Tuesday morning in the gazebo outside of The Company of Angels school store. Thank you Rachel Skelly and Christine Newell for organizing our Waldorf School of Orange County weekly craft group get togethers! – Jzin
Due to popular request, Christine Newell-Smith is teaching our craft group to make roving angels again today. Click here to view photos from our December 2012 session making wool roving angels.
Josephine arranging the fibers on her roving angel’s flowing skirt. Look at the gorgeous variegated wool roving freshly hand-dyed by Christine for craft group to work with!

The same fairy by Liz with golden thread added for hanging.
Meanwhile, I am catching up chatting with friends whom I have missed during the long summer break. Between taking photos and chatting, I managed to add final touches to my little Kite Boy (which was donated to Ms. Lorri’s first grade classroom) and working on the head of a doll for the recently flooded Colorado Boulder Waldorf School Kindergarten classroom.
Heather’s lovely lavendar fairy, just made this morning!

Jzin’s latest handmade Baby Fairy doll…
September 16, 2013. Our baby fairy is made with love. She loves to fly around your garden in the day time. In the evening, she gets very tired (after all, her wings are still so tiny) and falls asleep in her bed which is a large lily flower. She is afraid to sleep alone and would love to sleep next to the bed of your little child. A little blanket will keep her warm. She is available on Castle of Costa Mesa Etsy store, click below picture to go to Etsy.
The flower above was wet-felted at craft group!
