The Faerie Insiders
This post has been 9 months in the planning. A brand new year seems like the perfect time to take the leap and start my children’s story series.
I created a new Opt-in Library called the Faerie Insider’s Library. Every month I will add a letter size printable of a door, with a corresponding child’s story that you can frame or place in a binder. If you have already joined the Faerie Insiders and followed me, remember you can find the page in the About Me and Contact Menu (add your password)
Let me start out by introducing Faye, the artist finished drawing her last spring. Not only is Faye part of my branding, she is the main character of all my stories. Each month Faye will learn a life lesson and meet a new friend.
Faye is currently between 5 and 7 years old, she is determined, sweet and loves adventure.
The artist created her from a picture of my two granddaughters. People have commented that Faye looks like me, which makes my heart sing as she is a composite of my two little ones.
The First Faerie Insiders Printable for January
Meet January, I think it is the perfect name for the Great Pyrenees character. The actual printable is letter sized and does not include the frame graphic.
The following is an excerpt from the story. The full e-book is in the Faerie Insider’s Library.
Faye Walks to School
“Yaaawarghhhhh, good morning,” Faye says as she stumbles down the stairs of their old two-story farmhouse. Faye plops down at the table all dressed and her hair not brushed. Faye’s Mom puts a bowl of oatmeal in front of her “This will keep you warm,” she says. Not if I don’t eat it Faye thinks, but knows not to say it. After her Mom adds a little maple syrup is poured on top Faye quickly eats it all.
Faye finishes getting ready for school with a couple reminders “Wear a sweater,” “Remember to put on two pairs of socks”, she hears her Mom calling up from downstairs. As Faye gets ready to leave her Mom insists she wears a toque, scarf, boots and her big heavy coat. Faye manages to argue her way out of wearing ski pants by convincing her Mom it isn’t that far to school
It was Tuesday and Faye had a secret.
Faye’s older brother told her he saw some rabbits nesting in the bushes by the big tree near the Donaldson’s house. Faye is going to visit them.
Yesterday Mom had made peanut butter sandwiches, which are Faye’ s favourite, but she didn’t think rabbits ate peanut butter.
“Woo hoo and a yabba doo”. thought Faye. Mom made yucky ham and lettuce sandwiches, so Faye has lettuce to feed the rabbits…….
I hope you enjoy January’s door and story. Next months door art is in the works.
