Making My First Fairy House

One of my favorite memories as a 9 and a half-year-old was making my first fairy house. It was so much fun to do this with my brother, Jake. We did an easy house, but decorated it to be fit for a queen, or a king. We combined our ideas, as well as a couple of my grandmas, and pretty soon we had a memorable, beautiful fairy house! Jake himself told me he wanted me to share with you what we did so that you can have a good time just like we did while you make your house.

Here is how.

  1. Find 15-20 sticks that are around a foot tall and are around the same size.
  2. Find a spot in your garden where it is natural, and where you think is perfect.
  3. Form your sticks in a tepee shape. You may also lean HALF the sticks against a tree.
  4. Make a roof! (Optional.) Find some pretty leaves and cover up what you feel should be covered.
  5. Decorate! Dig a hole and put in a bowl to make a pool! Find a flat rock to make a table and stick some tacks into the ground to make chairs. Hang jewels from a near by bush or tree. Any other idea? Add it!
  6. To make the fairies welcome, add some small pieces of fruit to harvest on and maybe the next day, you’ll get a letter! You’ll know they came by the sparkles!

I hope you have as much fun as we did!


Sacred Spirit Book Club Coming Soon

The mission of Celedra: Touchstones of the Sacred is to create and nurture community while providing tools, resources and diverse paths to explore along your own sacred journey of intentional living. We hope to be a resource for women at any stage of their life and spiritual journey and believe that books are are a wonderful way to bridge the gaps in our common experience, especially by discussing them in a group.

Inspired by their teachings and stories, books support us in growth and change. Books can quench our spiritual and intellectual search for meaning and sustain us on our lifelong journeys. The best books also motivate us to action, igniting the internal spark that leads to transformation.

We have chosen The Feminine Face of God by Sherry Ruth Anderson and Patricia Hopkins to launch our book club for several reasons. Originally published in 1991, this book is a timeless resource for women as they begin to heed the inner call of the sacred; it also reflects the nascent stage that our blog community is in. The book chronicles the journey each of us take as individuals and the questioning and open discussion in the book also reflects the type of community we hope to nurture here.

Once we begin the first book cycle our core writers and guest bloggers will post their insights, personal reflections and questions to the community throughout each week. We invite you to post your own comments and personal reflections as well. If you would like to participate in our book club as a guest blogger contact us at matsya@celedra.com. The start date for The Feminine Face of God will be announced soon! In the meantime please feel free to contact us for more information.
