As mentioned earlier this week ❤

But to recap,
I received some guidance recently, that Faerie wants me to let the bottom half of faerie figures flow out in spirals like this, so this will likely be the first of many such expressions. I’m not sure how often I will feel like that needs to be applied, but I do plan on exploring this flowing-form idea more, at least in individual Faerie pieces.

Remember that delightful little local festival I spent months frantically preparing for last September, leading up to festival day, October 1st?

Well, somehow I missed this article, which I actually interviewed for that day, and then completely spaced out on!
 
Still so grateful to have been a part of this and looking forward to it again this coming (…..far off, but still coming) fall ❤
Thanks once more to Kristina at Amuse Modern Cottage Industry and Press Bay Alley in general for putting on the festival and inviting me to be a part of it. And thanks to Ithaca Week for featuring me in this article!

For my boss, who is a very supportive and caring person. Based on a small ink design I did for a “Guest of the Day” drawing at the hotel I work at recently, that she really loved (I post those on my Instagram each weekend, btw).

Plus, pumpkin fae. How can one go wrong with that? 🙂

Hello all : ) So I think a more proper post about my upcoming show (instead of posting vague WIPs on instagram) is in order.
On October 1st, less than two weeks away, I’ll be vending at Press Bay Alley’s Gnome and Fairy Fest, here in Ithaca, NY!


I’m super excited about it, not just because the theme is so close to my heart, but also because doing festivals, and hopefully having an online shop afterward, has been on my radar for a long time. I am very grateful to have been invited to this one.
I’ll be selling prints of my work, specifically the pieces below and a couple other ones I haven’t posted here before.

I also hope to sell some needlefelted items I’m developing, if I have enough of them, that is. More on that, and what they are, later.


The people who run this festival are very community-driven, so their shindigs tend to include lots of activities as well, so each booth is encouraged to have such an attraction as well as their wares. I’ll, therefore, be offering free coloring pages (and pencils to color them with right there at the booth). A couple of those pieces were inkwork already, but mostly I’m including some newly-inked pieces that were only posted as sketches before.

I feel like it promises to be an amazing time. I’ve only been to one Fairy Festival before, and NEVER as a vendor, so I am very honored to get to help bring the Faerie goodness this time – and to my own city, at that! There will be lots of other art and Faerie excitement, a costume contest and a Fairy House building contest too. So if you’re in the Central New York State area, please come check it out!
October 1st, 10am to 5pm. Press Bay Alley, Ithaca, NY!
Hope to see some of you there, and if not, I look forward to sharing pictures and telling you how it went!

A gift for a friend, to match another one I did for her a long time ago 🙂 Very tiny drawing, maybe 2 by 2 inches, if that.

(Drawing small things is fun.)

Hi everyone!

So finally, the Universe has provided me the opportunity to have a table at a small local festival – “Gnome & Fairy Fest”Joy ) at Press Bay Alley.

(I guess the Goddess got impatient with me for dragging my feet on getting myself Properly Set Up. And this is perfect. I am so grateful.)

I have never ordered prints of my own work from anywhere before, and I have no idea where to start. Does anyone who sells their own prints (not on Society6/Redbubble/etc.) have any advice on where’s good to order from?

Any replies will be appreciated. Thanks to all ~~<3
