Instead of Just Arbitrarily Making Stuff...

I'd like to know what YOU want for your Winter Holiday this year! :D

What kinds of art, beaded jewelry, polymer clay, felt creations, or other crafty concoctions would people like to see for the holidays?
..A gaunt & grinning goblin, masquerading as old Saint Nick maybe? Or a faerie gala, gleefully gathered 'round a bountiful feast perhaps? Seomthing delightful yet ghoulish, with everything from veggies to sundry severed parts; like the remains of fool-hardy human to fickle, feathered foul..?

What do YOU seek to give or receive over the holidays..?

(x-posted in a few places where appropriate. :))

My Crafts, Your Crafts, and Others' Crafts- of Faerie!

Okay, I'm not anywhere NEAR getting married, but the idea of a fae-themed wedding has long been on my mind.   I've got lots of things planned, a TON of ideas and even thoughts on wedding invite paper & such to performers & catering.  That being said, I would love your input:  

So firstly:  If you could have a faerie-themed  wedding (or attend your ideal version of one), what would you like to see (or not)?  What kind of attire would you wear if anything fae-related were possible?  (I.e. medieval to SteamPunk, modern street rat to 40K Eldar & faeries from all over the world would be okay.)  Would you have music, food, entertainment or ceremony ideas, thoughts or opinions? 

Secondly, I've got the Muses sitting on my head lately (which I'm extremely happy about & grateful for ^_^), and I've got lots of ideas for crafting Humbug Horns (my version of satyr's/faun's horns), beaded jewelry, fae-related art & beyond.  So my question to you is; what kind of jewelry, art, etc. would you like to see?  Do you have any images in your head you'd like to have depicted, or themes you'd like to see further explored?  (Or less, as the case may be?

Also, you all know of FaerieWorlds and FaerieCon, yes/no?  I hope so- I'd love to be a performer and/or vendor there someday!

-Ooh!  Which reminds me!  I've made a few of my own faerie art pieces too as of late!   The top two are directly fae-related, while the bottom two are more fae-friendly. ^_^

And lastly:  For those of you who seek more faerie trappings:  DId you know you can find these things called Treasuries on Etsy?  They're these user-created item collections that can be pretty much anything- as long as it's sold on the Etsy web site. ^_^   I found one made by a friend initially, which then inspired me to make my own.  There's a TON of cool faerie stuff on there. ^_^

Thanks and hope you like!

(no subject)

Hola!   I just wanted to pass on 2 quick links:
  • One, for folks who want a little SteamPunk-inspired costuming excellence, the guys @ Brute Force Leather would be great for all KINDS of people in the SP "universe;" (including modern fae & trad. fae alike). :)
  • And two, just wanted to let fans of satyrs (and other horned fae) know that I've 3 new sets of horns in my Etsy shop. :)  (They;'re no big thang, but they're fun to make and really inexpensive. :))  Plus, if anyone's interested, I've got various faerie (& dragon) inspired pieces @ Zazzle as well. :)


The Clockwork Dolls, a local band who'll be @ the Fair. :)   One of their fabulous corsets:   My new black & red Humbug Horns- the style called "Killer Kandy Kane." :)

"Humbug Horns!"

Hey all! With all of the curmudgeonly crud concerning the holidays floating about me lately, I thought I'd make something for the fashionable Scrooge & so-done Santa hat-wearing public. :) Enter "Humbug Horns!" :D

(Horns are $10, and can come in any color. The ones above however are in: [Top] Trad. Candy Cane (white & red), Anit-Cane (black & red), [Above] Candy Swirl (light pink marbled w/black), Trad. Candy Cane, Killer Kandy Kane (white, black & red), and Coal (black).
Any ribbon can be changed out for these lovelies. I've just used matching holiday ribbon to add a bit of coordinated fun. :)

For those merry mischief-makers, for those who wanna wear something unusual & original outside of the classic, traditional Santa hat fare, or for those who just wanna express how much they are "un-pleased" with this time of year, I've made these little holiday-themed, tie-on horns. :)

They'll be on sale @ Bound where I'll be vending tomorrow night, and might also go up in my etsy store. :) (They'd need better pics of them to go up at my shop, of course.)

Hope you like!

Including one general faerie-ep, as well as one all about merfolk & other aquatic creatures. ^_^)

Also, I've been drawing a good bit again as of late, and I've got one piece in the works, as well as a few others recently done that were faerie-inspired. :)

"DJ Selchie" ;D

Hi everyone, please read this and please pray with me

this is my photo of my dolly... :)

Hi guys and girls, as you must already take for granted (which is good!) is our freedom to love. Right now our rights are being stolen away, little by little, and our lifestyles are under the attack. Please read this and use your young and energetic minds to do and think of ways to combat this evil so that we can all enjoy what we love.

I got his e-mail, it's extremely important! If you live on this planet Earth, then you MUST make yourself aware of this growing pandemic! Please read all the way through this before you judge anyone. I left off the last name of the person who wrote this email so he won't be bombarded with hate mail, everything else is copied and pasted exactly how it is in the e-mail I got.

For the livejournal community goers, I realise this might be seen as spam, but I assure you, it’s not. This is not a chain mail or spam or hate mail, this is an e-mail I got personally from an odler gentleman who is very wise and very brave. I realise it might get deleted, which is exeedingly deplorable, scince no one will be exempt from the pervasive evil from the US and other nations, and everyone needs to know. This is one of the only ways I can get as many people’s attention as possible, so please don’t delete this, please read it, research it, and don’t scoff just becuase it’s shocking. I would not being doing this if I didn’t care about each and every person in this community!

It's very important that you copy and paste this into word program and print it out. Share this information with everyone you know and don't worry about looking foolish, the only thing you are doing is offering them a chance to get some information about the government.

God or Goddess Bless. (or anything else you believe in, because as a human being you have the right to believe in whatever you want).

My wife, Jackie, says she concurs with everything I say in this e-mail . . .

Foreign troops are now on U.S. soil -- Jackie and I already encountered one of their arrogant minions Sunday in Southern Oregon. He was on a BMW motorcycle with a small ISAF logo on the windshield; and we later saw a Dutch Army van headed south on Interstate 5 the same day.

While this may come as a great SURPRISE to some of you: We are about to go under martial law -- probably next month. I hope and PRAY that I'm wrong, but I don't think I am. All the evidence around us points to it -- the economy has collapsed, the dollar is at zero and about to be discarded, there is a swine flu fear-mongering hoax gaining momentum (but the swine flu "vaccine" is very real, and VERY DEADLY), almost daily, we are being HEAVILY chemtrailed here in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon with barium and aluminum and other toxins which are binary catalysts to weaken our immune systems, to be triggered by the toxic swine flu "vaccine." I would strongly advise you to take lots of Vitamin D-3 to prepare for the coming onslaught (which Jackie and I have been doing for more than a year along with natural sunlight) -- and there are foreign troops RIGHT NOW on our soil!

Until the Internet is shutdown (which will also happen very soon to keep us Americans from communicating amongst ourselves) I STRONGLY urge everyone to listen DAILY now to Alex Jones' Internet radio show -- http://www.gcnlive.com/mediaPlayers/odPlayer.php?program=alexJones -- ESPECIALLY TODAY, Tuesday, September 22, 2009 (sorry it's so late in the day getting this written and sent) -- as the pathological killers of the new world order are exponentially ramping-up for martial law and forced vaccination (and gun-grabbing) with NO due process of law, whatsoever -- ALL as our Constitutional rights are now termite-ridden. They mean business, and so should you . . . IF you don't want to be blind-sided. It is up to you to pay heed and educate yourselves NOW, because . . . it is imminent!

READ THIS WELL -- it may be hard to even BELIEVE for some of you -- but, this is what's happening NOW: Brainwashed "law-enforcement" personnel on goon "God-trips," and naive, uninformed military recruits (against the Constitutional Posse Commitatus law) with police dogs and helicopters are already in some of our cities with their dogs barking at passers-by -- AND: 279,000 foreign troops are NOW on U.S. soil (many of whom you can spot on the Interstate Highway system riding BMW motorcycles). Prepare now.

Jackie and I actually had a brief encounter Sunday, while camping up in the mountains, with one of those foreign military assholes on a red BMW motorcycle (a very rare purchase in the USA, as some of you might know) with a small, barely-discernable logo sticker that said ISAF on its small windshield {and when Jackie saw the ending-letter "F" on his sticker, she asked, "What fire department are you with?" -- and he side-stepped that question and off-handedly tried to stutter out an answer, finally deciding upon: "It's just a motorcycle club . . . " Jackie and I already knew about the BMW motorcycle troops from callers in other parts of the U.S. to the Alex Jones Internet radio show.

This motorcyclist SAID he was a Canadian (he might have been), and he was DEFINITELY a military "type" -- and, as a former Naval Aviator, I KNOW 'em, I can spot 'em . . . I WAS military. He also appeared to be working in conjunction with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office who was cruising around us simultaneously, watching . . . This guy was "phishing," and pushy, and he kept trying to get us talking about our "politics," but we just clammed-up, and he finally saw he was getting nowhere with us and packed up and left] -- and, THEN, later: Jackie and I even saw a Dutch Army van on I-5 heading south between Medford and Ashland, the very same day, Sunday). How did we know it was Dutch Army? Well . . . that's what the big sign on it said (duh!) in blue U.N. colors. They are "conditioning" us and softening us up to acquiesce to them . . . pretty blatant of them, though, eh? It's all part of their initial "psy-op" against us.

BTW: for those of you who don't know what ISAF stands for (the logo on the troops' BMW motorcycles), that's: International Security Assistance Force -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Security_Assistance_Force -- and that's ALSO: United Nations and NATO foreign troops, FOLKS -- (I apologize for using Wikipedia as a source, as it would've been rejected by my M.B.A. professors, but it's a pretty comprehensive explanation, nevertheless).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8UTRVlxRLE Dutch army! ( ISAF ) This is a youtube link abut the Dutch Army in America.

The ISAF was originally set up in 2001 by the united nations security council (I flat REFUSE to capitalize it) to be in Afghanistan, but, my theory is, they've been diverted to the USA to help subjugate US -- We The People of the United States of America. Otherwise, WHY else would the U.S. commander in Afghanistan be "calling" for more U.S. troops to be sent to Afghanistan??? (Hint: so our own troops won't be here to protect US. As soon as that last contingent of good ol' U.S. military forces leaves our shores, the ISAF dogs will be unleashed on US!)

Americans started calling-in from different parts of the country a couple of weeks ago to the Alex Jones Internet radio show about ALSO encountering these foreigners riding around on BMW motorcycles, and now they're here in Southern Oregon! Do you think they're just Europeans on vacation? Go figure some more . . .

My friends and family: this is all part of a diabolical plan (that I realize is too-difficult for many of you to get your genteel, civilized minds around [believe me, I don't want to absorb it, either!], because it's just TOO DIABOLICAL to accept, and many of you will refuse to even read any further, I know) to enforce their Luciferian scheme of mass murdering or putting the U.S. citizenry in concentration camps (FEMA CAMPS!) to turn the USA over to the United Nations and its troops (German army, too -- former East German soldiers) -- troops who will have NO QUALMS about firing on U.S. citizens when our OWN troops wouldn't have the stomach for it -- even if unlawfully ordered to do so -- while our OWN loyal U.S. troops (the ones who have HONORED their Constitutional oaths) have been sent to Iraq and Afghanistan (to fight for who knows what: oil and the opium trade?) -- they will NOT be brought home to defend us, the American people. Why do you think most of good troops are overseas right now??? This was a promise that Henry Kissenger made to the Council on Foreign Relations (I'm sorry I can't find the link to that right now, 'cause I'm in a hurry to get this info out to you): that the U.S. would be turned over to the U.N. by September (he's slightly behind schedule).

Alex Jones (I'm NOT apologizing for being repetitive with the link to his daily Internet radio program) -- http://www.gcnlive.com/mediaPlayers/odPlayer.php?program=alexJones -- is interviewing doctors right now, TODAY, who are strongly advising, in no uncertain terms, NOT to take ANY kind of vaccinations (including Gardasil, which is killing SCORES of young women already) -- and that goes for your kids and our/MY grandchildren, too (but only IF you want them [and yourselves, as well] healthy and whole-hide)! It is up to you as to how cavalier and "kewl" you wish to be about all this. Ignore it if you want . . . and forever regret it. If you take the swine flu shot, you're doomed.

Tell ALL your friends and family (brain-dead, or not!) to WAKE UP, too! While some of them may mock you (just as some of you CLOSEST to ME have derided ME [I don't have to name names: you know who you are] and laugh at you, they will NOT learn the truth about what's REALLY going on in the world and our country if they keep watching and/or listening to sports and so-called "news" on TV and radio (no matter which channel or frequency it may be -- it's ALL corporate controlled by the power-elite)!

I don't care WHAT you think of ME -- and yet, I think a lot of all of YOU! That's why you're getting this e-mail.

Please do not mis-interpret this as yet another ho-hum, Chicken Little, "The Sky Is Falling" message from Max. AMERICA IS FALLING! If you are receiving this e-mail, it's because I care about you. Even if you've been deleting all my e-mails up until now, this is one you should definitely heed and save . . . OR, just keep your heads buried in the sand -- it's up to you.

PLEASE: Shortcut the following link on your desktop and don't lose it. Again, I am very serious! I don't want any of you, my wonderful friends, to be blindsided by the pure HELL that's being unleashed on us -- even as you're reading this. Here's the link to listen to what's REALLY going on in the world at ANY TIME OF THE DAY OR NIGHT (as long as it lasts) -- it plays in a continuous loop for 24 hours, until 9 a.m. Pacific/11 a.m. Central, at which time he starts the new program and interviews for the day: http://www.gcnlive.com/mediaPlayers/odPlayer.php?program=alexJones

Also, go to Dr. Len Horowitz's website: www.fluscam.com -- and ALWAYS, but ALWAYS, check the articles that keep changing (sometimes, hourly) on Alex Jones' web sites of: www.infowars.com and www.prisonplanet.com -- unlike what is on the mainstream media network of lies, none of it is based on mere opinion and/or coverup: it is ALL based upon the facts (harsh as those facts are). This is REALITY, I'm so sorry to say.


Autumn Elf

For a Mini Scroll Invite Above/Below a Faerie Dorr:

"For a haven from the cold,
Be ye meek or be ye bold,
Spirit Fair or Twilit Soul,
From Days of Yore or Time Foretold:
For a warmth more rich than gold,
You're welcome here, both young & old."

**Work in Progress**

I might form this out of clay in the shape of a scroll w/a written inscription pressed & inked in it.. or I might just type this up in pretty handwriting/medieval font & print it out on a piece of paper to over or under the -beautiful- Faerie door my stepfather made me.... I'm not sure. Either way, I want this to be an invitational inscription bidding Fae to come inside. :):)

I hope they like it! ^_^
