Get Your Sparkle ON!! New Blog- Sparkly Giveaway!

Hello My Sparkly Friends!
and Happy Pink Saturday Mother's Day Weekend!!
So why is everybody so

Well to begin with, it's  
Mother's day weekend, so no cooking hopefully....

It is also
PINK Saturday
so here is some pink delishiousness

 I started this new blog called 
that I would love for you to visit and follow!
"Another blog Tobi??   Seriously??"
Yep- my sparkly friends... here's why, and a bit about me that you already know...

I am Tobi  from Pink Pixie Forest!   (that you already know)
I make all sorts of sparkly things with my Pixies. 
Now here's a little bit about me that you probably didn't know...
I am a makeup artist by trade- but have been falling in love with creating things over the past few years.  I owned a popular makeup school in the city for over 17 years called

After closing it a few years ago i
fell into such a deep depression that I just
didn't know who I was anymore.

What saved me was ART !!!  

I started gluing sparkly things on trees and blogging.  I took online classes like Brave girls Club and Suzi Blu. I made a  Labyrinth   in my backyard from free bricks i found on Craigslist.
I opened an Etsy shop and put up a
website (that i am really bad at updating) ...

And now I have started this blog- Sparkle Mining,
 to help women
reclaim their sparkle and get happy again.
 I am not a doctor or a psychologist,
just a woman
 who has been trying to 
reclaim my own sparkle
 and I want to share my process with you.

We have no control over the circumstances 
life can throw us... 
we can only control how we react to them!

Life happens...Sparkle Anyway! 
Ok- like HOW STINKIN CUTE is this picture??

 I want Sparkle Mining to be a place where women 
can go to feel better, get inspired and out of that "funk".  
You don't even need to be in a "funk" to enjoy it-
All the info there is free and I am adding to it daily.  
I write about courses I took, 
books that were helpful or inspiring to me- 
basically the tools I have been using to get back to myself again and
 sparkle brightly! 
I will be making videos as well so you can actually
 sit and have me talk to you like we are having a cup of tea together! 
 It's my little way of giving back.  
So please spread the word for me

  1. I can't wait to check it out! It sounds like just what I need. I just told a friend today that I feel like I'm standing at the edge of a cliff, stick one foot out in to the great unknown, then pull it back in and settle in to the unsatisfying, stable life I'm living. Hugs and Blessings Nan

  2. Hi Tobi,

    Sounds like something any woman would enjoy. Great way to connect to other lost souls, needing a fairy hug!

  3. Oh, Tobi, you are such a magical person ... full of inspiration & exquisite talent. I'll pop over for a visit. I love my cupcake ... to have this from you now makes it even more precious to me.

    You are a sparkle in our lives, sweetie.
    Happy Mother's Day

    Happy PS and warm hugs to you,
    (⁀‵⁀,) ✿

  16. I LOOOOOOVE your mind, sugar!!! You are cute and so is your mind.

  17. I followed the curious little tutu, and if there's anything as cute as a fluffy bonnet with a sweet face peeking out, it's a pair of ruffly socks over a pair of sassy pink (Chucks?).

    That avid curiousity, heedless of anything else, will lead her to great and wonderful things.

    Charming site, and I've joined as a follower, so I won't miss any of the fun.
