Fairyones: a little twinkle about myself …
In essence, I never ‘got over’ the magic of children’s literature, the power of imagination and the pleasure of fairy play. When a hired fairy for my OWN daughter’s fifth party failed to appear, it seemed the opportunity had magically presented itself and this impromptu, serendiptious fairy performance was the tippy toe I needed to ‘take my passion and make it happen’.
Since then, I have had the pleasure of bringing countless children’s books to life in libraries, schools, festivals and regularly in a bookshop AS WELL AS, of course, fairy partying with many birthday princesses throughout Sydney in private residences and at Sparkle Cupcakery, Surry Hills. In the ten years I have ‘flittered and flapped’ as Fairy Poppilina the passion has never died and the excitement never waned …
And .. in my opinion, in the midst of gloom we need stories and fairy lightness more than anything! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have entered an imaginary fairy door of fascination and stories where I have been urged to imagine and inhabit the lives of book characters and engage in imaginary play!
I hope to see you under my fairy rainbow soon!
