Letter from the Editor
Is it my imagination, or is Daylight
Savings Time coming extra early this
year! I think that the Spring Fairies are
still in hibernation as we've seen very
little evidence of the approach of my
favorite season here in Tampa. Maybe the
"powers-that-be" are trying to jumpstart our
leap into spring by pushing back the time
change to mid-March - hopefully Mother Nature
will get the message!
Our annual Fairy Day (4/4 - because Fairies
love the number 4!) falls on Easter this
year; we will be sending out our Easter
Specials newsletter in about 10 days with
lots of wonderful, whimsical gift ideas and
savings for the Easter/Passover season.
In celebration of Fairy Day this year, the
Fairies will be sponsoring a Fairy Forest
Adventure on Saturday, April 10th in Lettuce
Lake Park. Learn to see nature through the
eyes and hearts of the fairy realm as you
meander through a magical wonderland, wearing
wings and gathering material to make a
special Fairy House! Anyone of any age is
invited to participate. We are sponsoring
this event in association with the Girl
Scouts to help troop members earn their
Magical Fairy patch. For more information,
call Fairy Robyn Cancio at 813 892-6494 or
write to her firstname.lastname@example.org. We
will post more details in the upcoming
Spring will soon be upon us! Get a free
printable card of super cute St.
Patrick's Esmeralda decked out with her
leprechaun hat and clover wand. We've also
created this handy St.
Patrick's Day gift guide with plenty of
fairy green gifts.

Rawgue blog on the Raw Food Fairy website!

||Free Fairy Halo!
Through April 5, 2010 in celebration of Fairy
Day, we will gift you a flower and ribbon
halo coordinated to match any pair of wings
that you order that retail $8.95 and up
or if you buy 2 pairs of
lesser-priced, we will gift you 1 ribbon halo
and 1 rose headband. Great Easter combo
gift! Your fairy outfit isn't
complete without a halo! Fairies are often
depicted with a floral wreath, circlet, or
halo around their heads.
The circle is
an object of nature, representing the
unbroken cycle of life, eternity and unity.
Fairies, as guardians of nature, are very in
tune with the changes of season that
influence growing patterns. The symbolism of
the fairy wreath or halo is also connected to
the astronomical clock and the circular
movement of the earth around the sun.

The Raw Food Fairy keeps growing! Out of the
33 attending restaurants at the Museum of
Science and Industry on February 20, The
Tampa Bay Informer took special notice of
our booth. "Serving almost 2000 people our
raw food goodies at the MOSI Einstein on Food
and Wine was a lot of work!" Dr.
Rose said. "We had a lot of compliments -
when I was walking around later on, someone
stopped us and told us we had the best food
"Lucuma powder comes from a small fruit that
grows in Chile, Ecuador and Peru. It
surpasses even chocolate and vanilla as the
favorite ice cream flavor in most of South
America and even some European countries,"
Dr. Rose writes in one of her new Superfoods
blog series. She will also begin a Food
Allergies series and a Raw Fusion Lifestyle
"My husband was the type of person who
scraped the lettuce and tomatoes off of his
chicken sandwich. Okay, I admit: so was I,"

The tooth fairy has made a rebound after
rewards for lost teeth fell
ten percent last year amid the credit
crunch. The average payout per tooth
increased to $2.13 this year from $1.88, up
thirteen percent. Despite this average, tooth
fairy payments varied greatly between
individual households, ranging from five
cents to fifty dollars.
The 2010 Tooth Fairy Poll, conducted by Delta
Dental of Minnesota, surveyed more than 1500
families across the country about their
dental habits. "This year's Tooth Fairy Poll
average reflects improvements we're seeing in
other areas of the economy," says Ann
Johnson, director of community affairs. "For
example, the Dow Jones Industrial Average
increased 23 percent during the same time
period. The Tooth Fairy may be another
indicator that the economy is starting to

||Fairy Therapy™ - Wisdom in Whimsy
Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she
said. "One can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice,"
said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always
did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes
I've believed as many as six impossible
things before breakfast."
This month saw the successful opening of Tim
Burton's Alice in Wonderland, making
the 25th major film based on Lewis Carrol's
influential nonsense novel, published in
1865. Alice's timeless appeal marks a
continuing fascination with the whimsical.
Fittingly, we have our very own Fairy of

that "impossible" is really just a mental
Set aside five minutes today to indulge
yourself in your favorite "impossible"
fantasy, like time travel or growing
wings - your Wonderland, so to speak.
Close your eyes and start to
completely release yourself from the present,
letting go of any distractions and worries.
Breathing slowly, begin to transition to your
new environment (don't dwell on details like
the means to the end, etc).
When you are entirely
immersed there, take a few moments to explore
and enjoy your new setting. Where are you?
What do you see? How do you feel? What are
you doing? Focus on your positive qualities
that make your fantasy possible in this other
world (ie your bravery lets you fly without
fear). After a few minutes, allow your
image to slowly fade away to the back of your
mind, and come back to the present feeling
