Come sit a spell in my sparkly meadow deep in the heart of Pink Pixie Forest! This is a place of long forgotten dreams, the sweetness of childhood, the magical beauty of trinkets that twinkle... the wonder of surrounding yourself with pretty, glittery handmade baubles with an element of whimsy.
My name is Tobi- Fairy Elf of the Pink Pixie Forest. This is the place where my imagination lives and plays with the Pixies and Fairies, and where I create sparkly treasures to remind myself that we should never forget the blessing of "re- seeing" the world thru a child's eye again... full of wonder and amazement.

Hello My Sparkly Friends! We are knee deep in glitter and mica snow, but never too busy to thank our Super Sparkly friend Karen Valentine from Valentine Design!! Go visit her
and let her "holiday up" your Blog too! Thank you Karen!!!!
So sorry for the late hour of this post. Today is a day that sits deep in my heart, a day that sits deep inside all of us.
I woke early this morning and did my labyrinth tidying ritual... carefully raking the fallen leaves and twigs from the stones, symbolically envisioning the labyrinth to be my life, and the leaves to be any unwanted things that I don't want to let into my life.
I wanted the labyrinth (and my mind) clean so I could fully honor all those precious souls.
I then placed my New York City crystal on a log.
Ashley had given it to me because it was way too heavy to take to Austria. It still had the twin towers in it.
I then lit a small healing fire in the fire pit, and prayed and meditated and tried to keep my heart from breaking all over again.
Was it really 9 years ago that I watched the towers crumble, standing there on the corner of 21st street and 6th avenue.
My little Makeup Shop was on 21st Street.
If any of you are interested to hear of what it was like to be in NYC when it all happened, well here was my experience.
If not, just scroll down and see some pretty new
trees for Christmas.
Father Mychal Judge
Before I start, I just wanted to share my feeling about how incredible it was that Father Mychal Judge was victim number 0001. I picture his gentle soul helping all of the frightened and confused souls find the LIGHT. Can you imagine what heavenly confusion it must have been to have all of those souls pass at once? I truly believe Father Judge was using his heavenly guidance that day.
It was one of the thoughts that kept me going and kept me remembering that
God has a plan
even though we might not understand
or see it right away.
As soon as the first plane hit, I had a strong feeling in my heart that it was no accident. The second plane confirmed my feeling.
Being in the city that weekend was totally surreal.
Up where I was nobody was outwardly panicking yet, and I went straight into survival mode while everyone was still reeling from the shock. I went quickly to the market and bought armloads of food to bring back to the shop. I didn't know if the city would be totally shut down, and I wanted to be able to lock myself into the shop, shut off the lights and hope that major looting wouldn't start.
I figured if it did, I wouldn't be first on the list because really-
how many people need makeup to survive?
(Not including Celebrities!)
So I locked myself inside.
While I waited for Ashley,
I just sat in the dark,
in my little Makeup Shop.
I wondered what would happen next.
While I sat,
I wondered what would happen to
I honestly thought that my business would be over because of all of this.
How would I take care of Ashley
if my business closed?
I mean, I love makeup and everything, but it is pretty trivial compared to what had just happened.
As it turned out,
I was really wrong.
turned out to be a huge wake up call for many people all over the world...
"It can all end in a blink of the eye-
start doing what you love,
take even a second
Amidst the horror of it all,
we were given a
a second chance of sorts.
An opportunity to STOP wasting our time
I think that is the single most important way
to honor all of those souls
so that a little good can actually come out of such

The Story of The Pixie Trees and Fairy Trees from Pink Fairy Forest
Pixies are known for being a mischievous bunch, who absolutely adore trinkets- shiny, sparkely, glittery. It is a little known fact that they sneak into your drawers at night and play with all of the pretty baubles they can find. Sometimes...ok, very often they become so enchanted with your treasures that they take them back home with them to Pink Fairy Forest. Once they are safe within the forest, they hang all of their stolen shiny bits on the trees so they can be surrounded by them. This has become quite an epidemic with the faye folk in Pink Fairy Forest- so much in fact the Fairies are now catching the fever. Fairies adore anything pearly or iridescent. They love pearls and are also very fond of rhinestones, but feel very guilty of taking them from you, so they will often just take a stone or two from a brooch, a few beads from a necklace in need of mending or make off with a single earring, leaving it's mate home with you wondering where you might have lost it! This epidemic has alas made it's way to the North Pole as well, with the elves catching on. Elves prefer shiny mercury glass christmas balls and beads, and many times over-do the german glass glitter and mica snow because it reminds them of their treasured North. Now you may wonder how these elves could possibly spend precious toy making time on making Elf Trees? Simple- The Internet. They email all of their cousins down south of the Pole and have them sneak into your attics and pinch your treasured ornaments! They have escaped notice thus far because for every ornament they take, they will leave you some matching shards so you will just think the ornament broke!
