Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,
Hello and welcome to all those who've signed up during Burlington's Art Hop to receive monthly notices about fairy postings from me. It's been a bit since I've written which is mainly due to the amazing transformation that took place in Bluebird Fairies’ new studio home.
I was delighted to pick this fairy from my deck recently.
I drew 'The Fairy of Home Sweet Home' when I lived in a house that felt like a really good friend. She was off in the country, down a dirt road and next to a soft, easy (most of the time) creek. Whenever I would come home and walk in the door I would feel her greet me with 'Hello' and I'd feel a big 'ah' in me.
This new home of Bluebird Fairies feels that way to me. It's in a great space up on the 3rd floor of an old bristle factory now full of artists.
What a blast it was to initiate the space with so many people passing through it during Art Hop. Stopping at the fairy booth to have a card reading, look at my old demons on the wall and have a conversation to hear what becoming of “These earnest little drawings to help us do big things”.
Now sitting down a few days after the event I feel what a comfortable refuge it is for meaningful creative expression.
I welcome all the good that will come here and how this space will connect with you.
Emily and the Bluebird Fairies
