Autumn is in the air. I can feel it.


The ghosts are getting restless.


Wee mice and busy harvest gnomes are hard at work gathering seeds and nuts.


Jacks both silly and spooky are awakening in the heart of sleeping orange squash.


Witches and dark fae can be heard swooshing past in the windy night.

I had hoped to get a head start on autumn activities, but summer, she was a full one this year. I'm running, skipping, flying and pedaling to catch up.

I'd hoped to have an autumn holidays swap, similar to the winter holiday swap I hosted last year. It seems rather late for it, I think I've already missed most of the larger swaps. Honestly, I don't know, I've been too busy to even check.


anyone up for something easy, something fast, something with 80% less saturated stress and 90% more fun!?

I'm proposing the FAST FALL FAERY SWAP!

You could add even more F words if you wanted. (F words - nope, not gonna go there) Words like FLAT, FLITTER, FLUTTER, FRIGHTENING, FRIENDLY, FRAMED, FORAGING, FLAPPING, FANGS, FOREST....

You get the idea.

Here's what I propose. Something that's both seasonal and magical. Autumn Faeries, Foraging Gnomes, Sparkly Skeletals.... anything that's small, easy to ship (hence the FLAT idea might be a good plan) and takes one relaxing stretch to create. One afternoon with a pot of tea in the studio. Or one evening on the couch while watching the new fall television shows. It can be something to display in our homes or perhaps wear. A little artist's trading card or a collaged faery, a tiny Fimo gnome, a beaded witch.

I know, I know. I've been gone. I doubt I have a handful of blog readers left, much left a handful of potential swappers. But I'm throwing the idea out there. It would be fun.

Any takers?

Beautiful pictures that put me right in an Autumn frame of mind. I love to join the swap, all I really do is small collage art on tags which may not be big enough for your swap.

I'd love to be part of your faery swap. Used to belong to the now defunct Fairiegoddessmothers group and miss the swaps.
