I’ve been a little slow unpacking from Faerie Fest, but have a few new things listed over on our Art Fire Site . For now, Nate’s journals aren’t going to be there, as he just plain goes through them faster than I can get photos, edit the pics, and get them uploaded. But please feel free to look here his gallery of journals, and through his art. Nearly all of his paintings are available on journals as prints.

Lots of new jewelry too, got some uploaded on artfire, and coming here for pics too. It has been a crazy summer, so we apologize that haven’t gotten the site more up to date. Nate is still out of work with his back injury, tried heading back to work a week or two ago, and now the pain is back nearly at presurgery levels, so it has tossed a bit more chaos into our lives. Plus leaving lots of business things that normally are his job as mine job, while he continues to be under full health.

But on the upside, he is drawing and painting. He has a few in progress now that I can’t wait to see finished, I’m going to see if I can sneak in and get a couple in progress pics later.

And of course, a few more necklaces are rattling around in my head, just waiting for the final details of them to be decided so I can put them together. I really think that the planning, finding the right stones, researching various Goddesses (or other themes) is starting to take more than actually assembling, but that’s ok, I enjoy the whole process.

I just added a page to our site with our 2010 events to come.  The schedule isn’t yet complete, so be sure to check back, but it has at least June and July, unless we add even more.

Come on out to see us, we often have new things that aren’t online yet, and original art that you just can’t see as well online.

Just found out for sure that we’re going to be at Fairport Canal Days this year. Nate’s work has been there in the past in the booth of Hanging Around Frame and Art, but this year we’re doing it on our own. Come out and see us, it’s always a great event with lots to see and do!  It’s June 4-6 and we’d love to see everyone local there.

My mom asked me, back around the holidays, to make her something. We conspired, traded ideas, and she picked a centerpiece for it. And then I just couldn’t get excited over it, the one she chose just wasn’t me, so it wasn’t talking to me about what to do with it.  But then it hit me. The colors we had chosen, the greens are the colors of the very start of spring. The perfect idea for her.

Those of you who know me might know the story of my name. My mom had been told she couldn’t have kids, so her pregnancy was a surprise, which she felt to be nearly a miracle. And her choice for my name was very dear to her. There was a song back then called I Believe. She knew the version by Elvis, but others have sang it since.  It to her, was about the light coming, no matter the darkness, that Light always returned. And she saw that as Spring, which for her starts in April. So my name. We couldn’t find this song for years, though I did track it down a few years ago, and now have two versions of it that I love.

This necklace, Light of Spring, is for my mom. For seeing me as a gift from of Light and reminding me of it when I needed to hear it. The inner strand has Czech glass, Peridot, yellow jade, and a light stone I’m unsure of the name for. The outer strand has tiny Peridot chips, with the same light stone and amber.

I Belive
I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come
To show the way
I believe, I believe

I believe above a storm the smallest prayer
Can still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word

Everytime I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe

Everytime I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe

Back from vacation!

We had a great vacation visiting family, just starting to get unpacked and settled, and then were off vending at Rochester’s Gay Pride Day. So I haven’t updated here yet, but lots to come! Of course many of the things we brought back from the Faerie Fest sold today, so a bit less to put up, but knowing Nate there will be more soon enough!

Waiting on the kids to head up to bed to I can pull out journals for sizes still.

But in the mean time thought I’d tempt you with some new things. At the Faerie Fest, we met so many great other people.  And now we’ll be working with two of them 🙂

That’s all the clues I’m giving for now, until Nate is done playing with our new ‘prototypes’, but go check out the NY Faerie Fest vendors, see if you can guess who it is
