The Faery Godmother * Art Doll by Gina Luna 

I must tell you a secret. My dolls have souls. They are Ensouled. I have suspected of this since I started sculpting, over 20 years ago. My husband likes to say that they have personalities... and now, other very spiritual and highly psychic individuals have pointed that out to me: that my dolls are Ensouled. So, I must tell you that you are not only getting dolls from me, but they are also inhabited. If you ask me how, I would not know what to tell you. It just happens. I can speculate that it’s my inheritance, coming from a family of witches, healers, fortune tellers and Mediums. I am a Medium since birth, I can see, hear, feel and smell spirits, and that may be the reason they come in and take shelter in my dolls. Maybe I did this before in another life. I can’t explain how it happens, but it does, all the time. My mother hid my dolls from me when I was a little girl, because they walked and talked at night and didn’t let me sleep. So, here you go! You are getting more than you bargained for and I feel now that it’s about time I told you. And there is no need to be scared. My creations are filled with light and I can’t imagine a darker soul wanting to live in between glitter and roses, can you? And from now on I’m taking precautions I never took before, to bring in only light to everything I create, I think we all desperately need more love and light right now.  
“The Faery Godmother, (or good mother, as the Welsh call her)  is the Faery who brings her special gifts to the newborn.  The godmother’s ancestors are the Celtic Triple Matres, or Mothers is - who watch over places such as wells, springs, and the home, and over the course of our lives - and the Greek Fates, the three women who spin, measure, and cut the thread of man’s destiny. In Albania, godmothers are known as Fatit, appearing the third day after a child’s birth to bestow the gifts of fate. In Latvia, the Laume, a household faery, presides over the three major events of life: birth, marriage and death.”
