Spring Fairy Festival 2010

Greetings Blossoms and Sprouts! I have finally trod the silver path home from the Spring Fairy Festival in a ribbon-ly fashion, round-about, by way of Beltane at Crescent Moon Gifts.

The festival was an awesome event with great workshops, vendors, music and fun for the kiddos at every turn. It was such a good turn out this year that I think they might have to upgrade to a larger venue next year which can only result in awesome!

As I wandered around the celebration, here are some of the highlights that I took note of:

--The Fairy Amethina from the Gilded Quill taught a Magic Wand making class
for a whole host of Faeries and Elflings, which was a great success and resulted in many glamour-ready magic wands for the spreading of sparkle.

--Blu Pixie also taught a great workshop on how to build your own Fairy Nest. It was a hit and soon, there were nests all over the festival, adorned with creativity and flowers!

--Across the row from Amethina was the beautiful and bright Heather Teakell of
Krickets Creation. Heather is the hattress behind these amazing mini tri-corns and tophats, looking awesome in her ivy-arched booth.

--Around the corner from them was the soft-spoken Rachel Pace from Rachel's Fairy Houses.
She had a whole new selection of awesome steampunk-fairy rings and amazing new Gypsy Caravans.

ALSO! Rachel has been entered into a contest at Michael's Crafts for the most creative momma-fairy! If you love her work and want to support the community, please go give her your vote here! No signing up is necessary on any mailing lists or anything :)

--The All's Faire gnomes made a showing to invite everyone out to their fantasy faire this June 18th - 20th in Bonney Lake. I know I'm planning to be there!

--There were several performers such as Alexander James Adams (a favorite everywhere), Jimmy Free (amazing solo act), Green Fey (new up and coming band with a unique mellow sound), Adderstone Tribal Dance and Jeweled Scarab Dance Company.

I kept a careful eye out but there were no sightings of Wotan the Barbarian this time around...he must be plotting his revenge for Norwescon!

Fair wind and fair weather!
