Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by fairies. Of course the first fairy I remember is Tinkerbell but then as I got older a whole new world of  little people opened up to me, trolls and gnomes were as interesting as the fairies and I was amazed at the extent of the worlds interest in these diminutive creatures. I realized that I was not alone in my love of fantasy, even the Barbie Doll creators jumped on board the fairy ride.

Just Google “Fairies” and see what you come up with, it’s a wonderfully distracting world out there! And I do mean “distracting” I can lose whole days following links, taking me deeper into their world. Check out the artists who have devoted their imaginations to fairy art. Some of my favorite artists are Brian Froud, James Christensen, David Delemar, and Amy Brown. And the books, well, there is no end to the books (much to my delight). They range from a little girls first picture book to enchanting complex story’s.

There is a fairy festival every year near Eugene Oregon. I went to it a couple of years ago and it was big then, now, the organizers have out done themselves! There’s music and vendors everywhere! All things fairy. People dress up, wear masks, listen to music and dance in circles. We camped out, it was appropriate I think, to be in nature while we celebrated the fairies.

FaerieWorlds Festival with Brian FroudI look around my room, where I’m writing now, surrounded by all the things I love. You name it, I probably have it in here somewhere. Boxes, statues, and books, sitting on the shelves, prints hanging on the walls I even have fairy music. I wonder…will people ever outgrow the love of fairies? I hope not.

    What fun, keep writing everyday and soon the story will be written. Morgan loved it, wants to know what happens next, wants to see pictures and wants to know where is the book.

    Going to have to check out the fairy festival.

Fun Fairie Facts

You Know a Fairie is Present When...

You hear a whispering of leaves.
You see a whirlwind.
You feel a tingling sensation in your hair.
You have an unexplained loss of time.
You laugh uncontrollably, or feel exceptionally silly.
You see blades of grass bending when there
is no one around.

The Most Likely Place for Fairie Portals Are...

Lake shores
Glades in the forest
Where two roads intersect
Fences and border hedges (this is Arial's favorite)
Stairwells, hallways and landings
Tidal pools
Bends in a road

I would like to give special thanks to Gail Schimmelpfennig for allowing me to put her wonderful poem "Seeking the Muse" on my site. You can read her poem in the fairy poetry section under "Fairies in Word and Song". Gail is Utah State Poetry Society's 2009 Poet of the Year, and I'm proud to say, a dear friend. You can find her on FaceBook where there is a group for the Utah poets.
