“turn your cloaks for fairy folks are in old oaks'' --Old English rhyme
Come hop into the faerie ring *ring of mushrooms* or come listen to the sweet faerie music of the old times in the faerie mounds, or get lead into the forest by the faeries and come dance a day in all of your life with the faeries. Actually this swap won't take that long. But This swap is to honor the love of all things faeries. Faeries are the good neighbors they are ones to be highly respected and regarded. Some are extremely beautiful and sweet while others are vial and vicious and ugly creatures that do very bad things.( I just got visited by the bad faeries i just did this whole post and somehow it just got deleted and boy i was feelin something ill towards them...) Basically this is a swap honoring the inner changeling, Faerie, Faerie loving feelings inside us! You can craft anything faerie-esc like clothing, poppets, dolls, bags, art, paper crafts, faerie houses, faerie garden decor, home decor....you get the picture you creative craftster you! And this isn't limited to any old faeries its also includes their family. For the realm of faerie aren't just the wing butterfly creatures they have their cousins the mermaids, nymphs, dryads, brownies, gnomes, fauns, green man and green woman, mushroom people. They are all part of the faerie clan. http://faecyclopedia.tripod.com/navigate.html ( the letters are at the top of the site page to start looking on the faerie folk) There could be a certain artist or faerie author you love mine is Brian Froud and Charles De Lint for example. You might like movies with Faeries in them like The Fair Folk or The Fairy Tale or the Labyrinth ( I thought faeries did sweet things like granting wishes...) Or Peter Pan or Pinocchio...or the new TinkerBell movie (if your into that sort of thing) maybe your a lover of the Faerieworlds festival or Faerie con or other faerie type festivals. or you just love faeries they are quite good for the environment. I could ramble on for hours but we need to get this post on the road. we will have plenty of time to talk about our love of Fae!
