next project . . . .


with a deep sigh, I look back over the last six months with a view to where i've been, where i've come to and where i am going next.   April 2010 saw me recovering from a car accident and broken back while at the same time reinventing myself 'one more time'!  I had the idea to convert my shop to a fairy/princess gift shop experience by building a new look, a new theme and a new inventory.
- Stoney's Gifts,  All Things Princess and Fairy is now a reality and my shop boasts such lines as Kidorables, Charmits, Bobux, Melissa and Doug\, Eeboo, LeVan Toy and many more exciting collections.   Of course, since one is never finished, i am still adding inventory to my collection but if i may brag a moment, i think it's 'an adorable little shop'.   If you live in the Cincinnati area, please stop by.   You will find a carefully selected inventory of little girl gifts  chosen for their educational, self esteem enhancing, fun and unique qualities.
In my spare time, I was knee deep in plans for the Second Annual Wee Fairy Folk Fest held on October 2, (a huge success, even considering the showers that developed mid-day).   This year Doors of MainStrasse Village partnered with Children Inc. in our first Wee Fairy Folk Raffle to raise money for the Doors of MainStrasse Children's Scholarship fund.  (to learn more, go to

Second Annual Wee Fairy Folk Fest. ,. . .magic and wonder comes to the Village again!

Well, our Second Annual Wee Fairy Fok Fest was once again a day of kids in costume, fun, music,  drummers and dancers, fairy vendors, balloons, and a cinderella horse drawn carriage carrying the fairy princess and her court! From the opening with children in costume dancing in a circle around the Fairies favorite mayor, Mayor Bowman to the sounds of "It's a Small World After All", to the horse drawn carriage led parade that persevered in spite of the rain, it was magical fun for everyone!!   This year, the sponsor of this event "The Doors of MainStrasse" partnered with "Children Inc." for our first Wee Fairy Folk Raffle.   We raised money for our Children's Scholarship Fund and will keep you updated on kids that we will be sending to various art programs, etc.  

Next year's date!!!!   October 1, 2011 - put it on your  calendar now - we are.
