 “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!

   This swap is gonna be open to all countries *please specify if you are willing to ship to another country*, and be open to all ages * if you are gonna make a nude faerie please make sure your partner is of age and wants to receive something like that) make sure and take time to get to know your partner and craft a really good personal package of their likes. *please don't just throw something together have fun with this if you feel u need more info ASK THEM! (I had a girl in another swap receive a very *Cold* package meaning she made it totally unpersonalized and poorly like she just threw it together and sent out late even) and make sure that you have a good wist or a list of what you like give a lot of info TALK their heads off so they don't feel they are crafting for a white padded cell? lol YOU WILL NEED TO POST AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK with progress * you don't have to write a novel just check in ok? Please communicate with your partner crafting is a very spiritual thing and your making a friend! I will need DC CODES!!   ok.....

                 This swap is gonna be *** 1 Large ****1-2 mediums ( talk with your partner and tell me what your gonna do)***2 smalls**** and if you wanna gift with extra faerie gifties your more than welcome to but not necessary

I just get annoyed by all the "Pixie with Attitude" or "Brat" shirts and its a little lame for me tee hee...i mean my daughter likes her and i don't mind her liking her *there are far worse things in the forest*  But i guess if i had to like the whole disney type pixie thing i related to Faun the most....Tinkerbell was well a little to selfish and the pom poms kinda made me want to barf lol.... Tongue but hey its tinks thing then its tinks thang

I'm so in on this. And I kinda dig Tink. I can see how its the "white trash of the fairy world" but I dunno I think that its a nice direction to see Disney going in. Better than the whole bratty Disney Princess thing. I'd rather them inspiring little girls to run around pretending to be fairies bringing the seasons, than be a damsel in distress princess waiting for her prince charming.

I also love bitey too MadGypsy. If i had to relate to 2 cartoon faeries the most it would be Faun from Tinkerbell and Crysta.  I have this really old cartoon done by the inspiration of Brian Froud http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwNJfs9O8RI&feature=related ( u can watch it on youtube in 3 parts they arent to long) I am a huge fan of faeries. My husband has been trying to teach my son to nurf gun my faeries but i told him i will get the faeries after him! tee hee im sorry im crazy thats what happens when your a changeling born in a human world!

omg I LOVE Crysta. That's it. I am going to put on Fernegully today while I work.  Grin I love the grandmother character Magi. Old storyteller characters are my absolute favorites. Like I ADORE grandmother willow in Pocahontas but that's also because I so love dryads. I am such a fool for fantasy  Grin
