Happy Art Hop

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

It was a pleasure to see so many of you during Art Hop last weekend.

It’s a special holiday for the artists in and around the Pine Street area in Burlington. I LOVED having the studio so full of people sharing stories about these earnest fairies that are in our lives.

Thank you for all who have signed up to receive notices about my blog postings. These happen once or twice a month and usually focus on a fairy.

Today, I’d like to highlight this fairy which I received today on my “Fairy of the Day” app.

The ‘Fairy of Getting Through by Trusting in the Sun’ showed up SO many times over the Art Hop weekend that I was not at all surprised today while heading back to my studio I received this fairy.

What does it mean that it’s showing up so much? I wonder…

and I leave you with this quote-

‘Years many wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.' -Samuel Ullman

Onward and upward dear friends.

p.s.- We’ll be at the Women’s Business Expo in the Vergennes Eagles Club on the afternoon of November 3rd. If you’re in the area please stop in and say ‘hi’ and get your ‘fairy of the day’ and much more.

Our 5th Anniversary

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

I hope this greeting finds you well. Typically, this time of year is a period of transition for many. If this is for you, I wish you ease in all that you do. And, a BIG smile.

For artists and businesses in the Pine Street area of Burlington, this time of year is all about The South End Art Hop. For the 2014 Art Hop I followed the advice of Stephanie Salmon, of Gotham City Graphics, to share my personal drawings with the world. I was very excited and curious to see how people would respond to them.


I never could have imagined what has followed; Fairy Card Readings in a Fairy Card Booth, Fairy and Demon Drawing Workshop, Fairy Decks and Cards, a Fairy of the Day APP and, the new, Inner Goose Certification Workshop.

Even more importantly, I didn’t realize that a community of people (that includes you!) would grow. One that uses Bluebird Fairies to put into action our phrase - “Earnest little drawings to help you do BIG THINGS.”

We hope to see ALL of you and celebrate our Birthday at Art Hop. Those of you who have been such an important guides and friends along this journey AND those we’ll be meeting for the first time.

Wishing you ALL the best as we all move into our good intentions with commitment.

Easy Days for Awesome Living

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

It’s time for me to say hello to you and hope that you’re moving through the concert of life with a full appreciation of the music.

When I spend time with music full of texture and depth, I’m able to fully appreciate that life IS truly full of complexity, simplicity, deep feelings, passion, softness, grace…. The list is endless.

So, in honor of that, I’ll share with you a fairy I made for Cricket Blue, an incredible musical duo that has been filling me with appreciation for life.

And, a fairy for YOU!

I’m wishing you all the best and will be in touch with details about our South End Art Hop activities, winter markets and much more.

All the best,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

p.s. if it’s Saturday July 27th please find us at the Old North End Ramble. We’ll be part of the O.N.E. World Market next to the O.N.E. Community Center. Come One, Come All.

Love for Us All

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

It’s a been a busy month and a half since I’ve last posted.

Luckily, we’ve arrived in summer and I’m happy to say that the card I drew from the Bluebird Fairy Deck to guide us through this season is-


Oh, the ‘Fairy of Love for me!’ I feel like every where I turn she’s popping up to remind us to do this. Yes! ‘Open the door and let it in.’

Lena from the Power Path Seminars and School of Shamanism writes in her summer solstice post-

“This solstice supports family, home, nurturing, and taking care of your container, your body and your self care. The energy is feminine, creative, fertile and supportive to collaboration, honoring of Mother Earth and Mother figures, and feeding the seeds that you are planting for new projects and ideas. We are focused on honoring the sun as well, taking in the energy of that life force and filling ourselves up with it.”

I hope you can take in this wisdom.

Wishing you all well.

With much love,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

Locating the 'Edges of Oddness'

This morning I received an email from Mary Pratt who said “The Fairy who appeared this morning inspired my daily poem.”

Her fairy was-


Hurray for the ‘Fairy of Around the Edges of Oddness.’ My friend Tracy Thresher used that phrase in an explanation and the words stayed in my head till one day they crept out as a fairy.

I asked Mary if I could share her poem and her daily fairy practice and she agreed.

Mary’s poem is an amazing description of where you won’t find the ‘edges’ and where you might. (there’s a link to it below) I look forward to sharing it with Tracy because I think he will enjoy its resonance.

Regarding her daily practice Mary said- I’ve just been picking a fairy out of the pack every day—in a fairly orderly way—the one on the top—since Cathy gave them to me. When I’ve been through the whole deck, I’ll shuffle and start again. The Chosen Fairy is hung up on a kitchen cabinet so I can see it off and on all day. I like them so very much!

I love hearing this.

Do you have a story to tell about how the fairies play a part in your life in a daily way? Or, like Mary, art inspired by the fairies?

I would love to know because I’m developing a home on our website for the Bluebird Community. You can find Mary’s poem here.

We are thankful to be a part of your lives.

Onward and Upward!
