Time again!

Inspired by the non-snowy landscapes of winter (though we are getting some snow here tonight, it seems!).

Also dedicated in gratitude to “The Faerie Handbook” by Faerie Magazine, for including Gnomes in their section about different types of faeries – sometimes, we get ignored, and I am very glad this is not one of those times!

(And everyone go check out the book, it is *gorgeous*. Available here on their site and here on Amazon, as well as through many other retailers.)

As it says ❤

“Branch Haven,” for my father-in-law (he who makes all the lovely woodworking for my wife’s shop, btw – lladyllama.com/ ).

Again, happy day to anyone celebrating it!

From yesterday.
Prompt – Gnome Home. 

This one as such because the forest, the Earth, is home to these earth spirits 🙂

Full prompt list linked in the Shop/Contact tab above.

"Batties on Board," ink on paperFor my bat-loving Mother-in-law this past Mother’s Day 🙂

"Blessing the Forest," ink and pencil on paper

For my nature-loving Father-in-law this past Father’s Day.

"Tiny Spindle Thief," ink and colored pencil, 4x4 inches

For my Father in law this past Father’s Day.

He makes the spindles and other woodworked items for my Llady’s business and has a good respect for nature, so I ended up doing this…….and noticed a bit too late that the bird would be crazy tiny. But at that point I actually liked the idea, so it stayed as is.

4 by 4 inches, by the way, in ink and colored pencil.

Did you ever have one of those mornings that’s just unexpectedly spiritual?

That happened to me today, delightfully.
