Exciting News!!

I've been sitting on this one for a while waiting for the paperwork to come through. Last night after arriving home from yet another horrible day at work, I was instantly cheered to find that my licensing agreement from Amy Brown had finally arrived.
This very talented artist has granted me a non-exclusive license to create costumes and wings based on her beautiful paintings! I am so excited and can't wait to get started. This was initiated via email back in July and I have hesitated to start creating until everything was finalized.
I hope I can crank out a costume or two before Faeriecon next month-which is only a little over two weeks away!.

In other news, I have been going insane trying to make all kinds of things to get ready for Faeriecon. I have several projects in the final stages of completion and hope to have a few pictures posted in the very near future.

In the wake of Ike

Hurricane season has already left a swath of destruction in the US.
Fellow FAEteam member Beth of Archeress Arts has begun a small fundraiser, called Winds of Hope, to assist another member, Valorie of Battlemaiden Studios who's family's home was devastated during the storm. At some point during the deluge, half of the roof on her family's home gave way, leaving her brother and sister's room to an open-sky ceiling. Fortunately, nobody was hurt, but the 4 family members are now taking shelter with her in Valorie's apartment until repairs are made. Under the tag windsofhope, some of us are selling at least one item with the proceeds to go directly to Valorie and her family, for roof repairs and any other necessities as they push through this hard time together.

I have listed my white recyled and distressed rabbit fur mask, titled "Artic" to be sold for the Winds of Hope Fundraiser, with the proceeds to be donated to Valorie. I believe more Fae friends will be listing items in the near future, so be sure to take a moment and search for the tag "windsofhope".
