We have been doing lots of fun craft posts about fairies recently. They are so pretty and fun to craft and I love the magic. I thought it would be a nice idea to see what other posts were around and put them all together. I was amazed by how many others there were. Thanks for all the contributions. If you click on the pictures you can go to the post.
