We Want YOU!!!

Okay, I gave the little marionettes a little break, but stay tuned
they will indeed be back. Are you and your imagination
in need of a good stretch or breathe of fresh air? Want to do some fun
and creative new things for your portfolio, get some inspiration, try a new medium???
Do you adore and love fairy tales and hilariousness through illustration????
My Soul Sister Loredan Avery of and myself have created a new blog with all this
in mind.
We have teamed up to create a new blog entitled Wibbly Wobbly Woods. Think of Alice and Wonderland meets Willy Wonka, with a dash of Beatrix Potter.
Basically, it’s a fictional forest, where each member will take on a fantastical persona, ie: fairies, witches, gnomes, mushrooms, and the like. And every month, or whenever an idea strikes, there will be some sort of prompt, in which you will bring to life whatever comes out of your creative genius.
If you are a painter, sculpture, crafter, sewer, stitcher, practically any creative endeavour, please consider us.
We’d like to keep the blog small, so we’re only opening up 8 slots right now. And we ask that you only join only if you are EXTREMELY SERIOUS. Because we’re going to be putting a bazillion percent of ourselves into this blog, we ask the same from our members.

The rules are simple:
1) You must post. You can post as often as you like. You don’t have to do all the prompts, but you MUST post according to the prompt. And if you don’t, you’ve got to give a good reason why, like vacation, or you’re eye has fallen out and you’re still looking for it on the floor.
2) If you have things to sell, we ask that you don’t use our blog to do it. We’ll be happy to provide information on the blog about your things if anyone’s interested, absolutely.
3) You’re work has to be family oriented, G rating.
4) Sadly, if you don’t follow these rules, we’re going to have to banish you from the wood. It seems harsh, but we really are looking for ONLY serious and dedicated individuals who truly want to be part of something magical.

Please check us out at, and read our first prompt and a brief introduction. If you’re interested in being part of a creative supportive group, and want to have some Wibb Wobblian good times, please write us at, and tell us why you’d like to be a fellow Wibb Wobblian. Also include any website and/or blogs that you may have.

Looking forward to hearing from you all!
