Letter from the Editor
We are reaching out with an early spring
issue, featuring Special Offers for
Easter, Passover and "Just Because it's
Spring" gifts. Check out the Easter
Gift Guide put together by Fairy Cortney.
With their whimsical themes, pastel colors
and message of renewal and joy, Fairy Line
Naturals creations make just the right
statement for Easter gifts. I'd recommend
getting your orders in as soon as possible,
especially if you are on the West Coast so we
can make sure to delight your little fairies
in time for the holiday.
In celebration of spring we are hosting a
Fairy Forest Adventure on April 10th.
We want to really let the spring fairies in
beautiful Lettuce Lake Park know how much we
appreciate them, so let's gather and get a
chance to meet and revel in the beauty of
April is the first annual Genocide Awareness
Month sponsored by the Florida Holocaust
Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. There
is more information posted below, but I'd
like to share a bit of my personal connection
to the museum.
Last year I decided
the training as a docent (tour guide) for
this museum. As a facility devoted to
teaching many school-aged children about the
Holocaust and other genocides, the docent
training is very rigorous and requires quite
a bit of preparation. I made the decision to
volunteer my time because I am a 2G - meaning
second generation after the Holocaust.
My parents were both survivors -- and with
my mother already gone and my father
approaching 90, I feel that it's imperative
to tell their stories in the hope that our
children can learn to never recreate that
horror. Did you know that there have been 52
genocides since the end of World War II? If
you are local to this area or planning a
trip, I urge you to check out the link and
consider taking your kids to one of the
events. If anyone is interested in booking a
special tour with me as your docent anytime
throughout the year, by all means send me an
HAPPY SPRING! HAPPY PASSOVER! AND...
Until fairy soon,

Saturday morning. Actually, make that
afternoon. One of those rare and glorious
Saturdays when I have nothing better to do
than sleep. Cocooned deep within our
blankets, my husband and I awake to the phone
vibrating its way across the nightstand.
"Your parents," I toss him the cell. I begin
skillfully falling back to sleep, when Steven
abruptly rolls off the bed. "You'll be here
in ten minutes?"
The dogs haven't had their Saturday morning bath
- and in our deep-sleep absence, entertained
themselves by rolling in the trash, which
they somehow knocked over.
I quickly scoop up the trash and Steven grabs
the pets. He tries to stuff them into the
tub, but I remember that our Pekingnese needs
at least twenty minutes to
dry off: he is like a moving mop when wet,
drenching all flooring and furniture in his
"I have a better idea," I tell him, whipping
out a shimmery
pink bottle of Good Love Karma. "It's natural
so it's fine to use on them," I explain as I
gently spritz the dogs. A quick sniff of
their fur confirms that they have gone from
foul to wow. I frantically run around the
house, dousing everything in sight. Each
spray seems to eliminate some of the frantic
energy gathering in the apartment.
Finally, I turn the bottle towards myself. I
can feel an instant mood shift as it works
aromatherapeutic magic on me. Then I hear a
knock, and I take a breath. "Good afternoon,"
I smile in earnest, opening the door.
"Words cannot describe how much fun my 6
year old daughter had with her friend with
the fairy dust - it was so amazing as the sun
caught the particles the dust actually looked
like angelic beings!"
In honor of the coming season, we've
slashed prices in three very fairy Easter
categories by 30%! Check out our Wings, Sprays,
and Fairy Dust for superb
pastel-colored gift items packed with
uplifting themes of life and renewal! Just a
dash of our Fairy Dust for Magical
Dreams or a spritz of our Fairy's
Breath Anti-monster Mist will leave you
feeling bright and refreshed.
Plus, through April 5, 2010 in celebration of
Easter, 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. It's a Great Easter
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
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.
||We Must Never Forget!
In April 2010 the Florida Holocaust Museum
will host its first annual Genocide and Human
Rights Awareness Month (GHRAM). The goal of
GHRAM is to build public awareness about the
Holocaust, the current genocide in Darfur,
past genocides and human rights violations
such as the Armenian Genocide, the Cambodian
Killing Fields, the Rwandan Genocide and the
genocide in the former Yugoslavia.
During the first week of April, the Florida
Holocaust Museum will host the outside
projected exhibition, Darfur/Darfur, which
consists of photographs taken of the genocide
in Darfur by photojournalists. An indoor
version of the exhibition will be on display
for the entire month of April. The Museum
will hold a reception on April 3, 2010 to
inaugurate the annual initiative. Other
confirmed programs include a public talk by
Nicholas Kristof on April 6, Yom HaShoah
(Holocaust Remembrance Day) on April 11,
Rwandan survivor and author, Immaculee
Ilibagiza on April 14, Croatian author,
Slavenka Drakulic on April 20, Dr. Edward
Kissi speaking on the role of the UN on April
29 and many more. Program information can be

history rockumentarian" and has posted
several clips from his soon-to-be released
documentary 45 Wars on

||Fairy Therapy™ - Easter Eggs
In video games, hidden unlockables —
like new powers — are known as easter
eggs. Truth be known, we all have our own
hidden easter eggs, but in the hustle
and bustle of everyday life, we can quickly
forget about these talents.
Think about what a few of your favorite
skills are, no matter how trivial they seem,
and focus on how happy they make you and
others. For example, my father was good at
hacky-sack, and while his ability to kick a
bean ball back and forth never earned him any
jobs, it provided endless amusement for my
siblings and I growing up.
Write a compliment about yourself and put it
in an Easter egg in your desk, or somewhere
else out of sight — before long, you'll
probably forget about it altogether. However,
every now and then, you'll stumble across the
egg, and its warm words within will remind
you to love yourself.
