Letter from the Editor
Always my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving is a
wonderful time for family, friends and
It is also the gateway to our
headlong plunge into the holiday shopping
season! (although with our new Fairy
line October was a record month - there must
have been lots of Fairies out
trick-or-treating this year!)
The very fairy aspect of the
Thanksgiving spirit is about
expressing gratitude for all
of the blessings in our lives.
I would like to openly express my
appreciation to the many fairy-inspired souls
who help Fairy Line grow: My
devoted team of Fairies -- Karen, Jenn,
Cortney, Melissa and Robyn - and to our new
Fairy team members, Sarah, Rachael and
thanks to Kendra L. at my lab who patiently
helps bring our creations to light,. Heartfelt
thanks to to Michael Liu. for his great
contributions and our West
Coast Fairies Kathleen & Kelly Malone and
Julie Farha, who
are devoted to spreading our fairy message
With love and gratitude to my partners in
life and business - my husband Jeff and
father-in-law, Francis (soon to reach his
94th year & what a blessing that is!) And
a special thanks
to all of our Newsletter Readers, My Space,
Twitter and Facebook Fans. Fairy hugs and
gratitude to our beautiful
pioneer group of Fairy Girls and their Moms.
This photo was taken at the Great American
Teach-In. This is Fairy Robyn reading Drew
and the Dreamtime Fairy to a first grade
class in Westchase.
We had 4 teams of Fairies going out to 4
schools this year and reached over 700
students from kindergarten to middle school.
I especially loved working with the middle
school kids (6th
and 7th grades) They are at that crucial age,
where sometimes "being cool" takes over their
lovely innocence and imagination -- so glad
we had an impact. Lots of interest all around
for Fairy Girls Club! (even many boys asked
if we had something comparable for them!)
SAVE THE DATE: If your daughter (aged
5-15) has been curious about Fairy Girls
Club, we are having a holiday party on
December 18th. More details to follow.
I'll be back with our holiday newsletter
and more specials soon.
Just in time for the holidays!
It's taken almost two years to get these
creations on our shelves, but well worth the
wait. Each Glitter-on-the-Go embodies
the colorful and fragrant essence of the
Fairy who inspired these easy-to-carry
natural mineral scented roll-ons.
This summer we did some test marketing with
girls and their Moms -- they were as popular
with adults as with the kids!
From the left: Fairy Cleo's is golden mica
with an alluring fig fragrance; Bahari's
blue-green sparkle has a beach-y scent; Snow

a soft ylang ylang/cucumber scent and Gypsy
Fairy Arianna's peach toned blend is redolent
of Sicilian oranges.
These are the

AND grown-up fairies on your holiday shopping

The Raw Food Fairy demonstrates
"Holiday Treats" at Whole Foods Market in Tampa
Consisting primarily of fruits, vegetables,
nuts, seeds and sprouted grains, a raw food
diet is enzyme-rich and ultra-healthy. And
with the right recipes, they can be
surprisingly gourmet and sophisticated
dishes. I'd like to think that raw foods are
the closest we come to fairy cuisine!
Having made the switch to a chiefly raw food
diet myself last year, it made a major impact
on my overall health and energy level. I
have done extensive research on this
fascinating field and studied with some
extraordinary chefs, while coming up with
lots of recipes and tips on how to transition
to the raw lifestyle.
Please join me for my "Holiday Treats" class
next month and learn how you can create
delicious raw treats and snacks for your
family and friends this holiday season.

||Fair-apy Nature's Gift
Here's a great way to tune into Nature and
express appreciation for her infinite
abundance and variety. This holiday, amidst
all of the rich and plentiful meals and
leftovers, choose one simple piece of fruit
to enjoy in a solitary few moments of
You may want to choose a seasonal specialty,
like a tangerine, pomegranate or persimmon --
or an old standard, like an apple, banana or
pear -- but take some meaningful moments to
truly marvel at nature's creativity. Observe
its texture, color, fragrance and taste as if
you were studying and appreciating it for the
very first time. Take a moment to fully
contemplate the miraculous morsel in your
hand, that starts its existence as a simple
seed. By doing this brief
(and delicious!) exercise, you are expressing
gratitude to nature, at large.
