"eeriefae"





Continuing the Halloween theme....have spent the past week making these little darlings. There are only 10 available and the plan is to have an edition of 10 available each year for Halloween. Of course, they will be different "eeriefae" each year, so should make a nice little collectible set. They've been wonderful fun to work on and you can check out their shop page here.

I'm still listening to the 'Harry Potter' audiobooks every day in the studio. I'm about halfway through 'Order of the Phoenix' and can honestly say that I'm getting more enjoyment from hearing them read by the great Stephen Fry than I did reading them myself years ago. I had quite forgotten how much they've left out of the movies or changed around....all the small details that make the books so compelling. If you love the movies, I thoroughly recommend experiencing the books this way.....just listening to Mr Fry do the voices is a real treat in itself!

The beautiful Spring weather we've been having the past couple of weeks came to a crashing halt today with a return to wintry cold, rain and wind. A bit of a rude shock really.....as someone who is always freezing during the cooler months, sunshine and blue sky does wonders for my energy levels and my mood. I hope the return to Winter doesn't last too long.

Before I sign off, my good friend and fellow 'Strathalbynite' Joanne Blackeby has finally got her blog up and running. Joanne is a very talented textile artist who creates beautiful, sensitive pieces that reflect her love of nature and the countryside that surrounds her. Being a very private person she was quite nervous about blogging, but I think she's done a lovely job. You can check out Joanne's blog here.

Till next time.

  1. Lorell your "Eeriefae" are so cool. It is fun to know that they are the beginning of an addition. I do that with Christmas ornaments each year too. Never thought to do that with Halloween.

    I agree with you about Harry Potter books. The movies don't do them justice. As always thanks for sharing your inspiring work. I am off to check out your friends blog.

    Tiny Oops...you have the Readers name wrong...all the Harry Potter Books are read by the great Jim Dale ... his rich voice and perfect voice inflections are just the best...

  5. Thanks so much everyone!

    Jodi - I don't know which Harry Potter books you are listening to, but the ones I have are read by Stephen Fry....you can check them out in the i-tunes store. Perhaps there is a different version for the US as Stephen Fry's accent is very British.
    Have a listen if you get a chance.
    Hugs back.

  7. Hi Lorell... I listen to the Original Version released to both the US and England...Jim Dale is british and has won Grammy awards for his readings of the Harry Potter Series. This series is realeased by Random House Publishing. Possibly there is a different reading for the Australian or I-Tunes Series....

    Hugs,
    Jodi

  8. Yes, the plot thickens! I looked it up and there are two versions, both critically lauded with awards etc. The Jim Dale version doesn't appear to be available here....we usually get the UK version of things.
    In any case, I love the version I have as Stephen Fry is one of my favourite people on the planet. The Amazon (UK) page is here

    there are customer reviews towards the bottom of the page. I'm curious about the JD version now, so will hunt it out on Amazon.
    Happy Harry Pottering, Jodi
