Bronte and Dickens, sprinkled with fairydustNovember 23, 2011
The latest issue of Ink and Fairydust is finally published!
I've worked very hard on this issue (I am the graphics editor), so it's with a big sigh of happiness and exhaustion that I announce this! :) Our writers have really stepped up and written some wonderful, funny, and deep articles and stories...

You might recognize this photo from the "Christmas Party" article. This issue I was short on photographs (hopefully not in the future, since we've added a couple teen photographers to the staff!), so my little sister and I improvised.
We made a Victorian favorite-- popcorn strings for Christmas trees.
We unpacked the ornament box and pulled out our old-fashioned decorations. Thirty photos later, I finally decided that I had enough to work with (it was a good thing I took so many photos, because many of them were blurry!)
It was pretty funny, decorating our evergreen on the first week of November.
Another photo adventure was making the header for the column Following the King. Here you can see my latest sewing project: a half-finished cape! ...and my brothers' sword and dagger, and our copy of The Hobbit with runes on the spine, and the Lord of the Rings as beautifully illustrated by Alan Lee, and my scroll that Dad got in China...
I love any oppurtunity to photograph weapons. And books.
