Fairies are all about believing. But they are also not afraid to bite you. That is why fairies and their dust must be put in jars.
I had a dream about a crocodile. The croc followed me around like it was my pet. I wasn’t afraid of it. In fact, at one point I think I walked it on a leash. I woke up the next morning, grabbed my giant book of dreams, and it read that I am getting more […]
This is where the magic happens. Witches cauldron’s are the part of fairy tales that really get the action going. That is why the Witches Cauldron belongs in the Fairy Tale Junkie Collection. If leprechauns aren’t hiding their treasures in them, then witches are preparing potions in them with a multitude of crazy ingredients like […]

What could be the problem? You take a hot shower, take deep breaths, and start again. Still nothing. Maybe […]
When I thought it didn’t matter. Let me tell you, I never thought I would care about taking photo’s that matter. In fact, I have been dodging the camera’s for years. They make me talk like Yoda: chubby they make me feel. I don’t have kids, so the majority of pics I take are of my […]
