"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." ~ Roald Dahl

I have some very exciting news this morning; something I've been imagining for a good bit has finally come to fruition - I'm a member of the PFATT Marketplace! Some of you may have seen ads in magazines for this wonderful group and their website (most recently in Mary Englebreit's Home Companion). I've been a member of the eBay group for several months now, but the Marketplace is their online site, updated once a month, where we folk artists are able to offer our work for direct sale.

My plan was to offer three pieces, but when it came down to the deadline the weather and my camera didn't cooperate - so my first offering will be just this one piece. I seem to be on a roll with tuxedo cats this season - there's something so striking about the black and white against a snowy night sky!

I have several other magical winter pieces in the works, which will appear on eBay and Etsy very soon - two small boxes with glittery winter moon toppers, and a sparkly snowman sign proclaiming "Peace on Earth". And not to forget Halloween, look for a wicked cool hinged treat box too (black and orange of course!)

And finally, however you spend your days, whatever your circumstances, I hope you are finding your own magic this season!

Artful Blessings,
~ Carolee
