Happy Lunar New Year!

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

We’ve begun the Year of the Pig!

Every year I get excited about the largest holiday celebrated on Earth, Chinese New Year.

It begins on the first new moon of the year and continues on until (15 days later) that moon is full. The days between these two lunar happening each has a focus. Like the Birthday of Millet and the Day of Stone.

The final days are devoted to the creation of lanterns for the final event of the holiday, the lantern festival. So, as we welcome this huge full moon, millions of people will be dancing in the streets.

Isn’t that all great fun?

Good bye, kind Year of the Dog. Hello, you wonderful Golden Pig!

From what I’ve gathered, this year will bring us all fortune of many kinds. So, please find ways to enjoy good food and allow your body to do fun things.

“Gung Hay Fat Choy!” says my friend Lucy.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to All!

Dear Friends,

We hope you’re resting after a full holiday season of doing, being and feeling much.

This first weekend holds the first new moon of the year. It’s a wonderful time to sit still and allow the new in. I was looking through fairies today and found this one and it seemed perfect to share with you all.

Onward we go with our wishes and dreams and intentions.

Be well and do have fun!!

Happy, Healthy, Hollydaze to You!

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

The season of light is around us.

Many years ago I made a commitment to myself to move through this time by enjoying the lights of the season, the music and the opportunities to gather together.


Last night at the Hive Open Mic I performed a piece that did just that. Together I and the audience sang 3 songs and in each we did something together. In one we rang bells, in another, we thought of moments that held Compassion, Creativity and Connection and acknowledged times when we had obstacles that kept us from them. Finally, we turned the lights down low and held little votive candles while singing and humming a song together. In the darkness we made silent wishes for ourselves and then rang ourselves back into the rest of the evening of performance.

I wish all of these things for you in this season.

And…I hope I see you. It’s been a while since I’ve had my Fairy Card Reading sign out. Next weekend at the Hive Pop-up Shop and Holiday Party I’ll be doing just that. Please stop in if you can and say ‘hello.’

I’ll be in touch again soon.

Much fondness to all of you,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies


Flying Geese

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

Three weeks ago I began to conduct a workshop that playfully supports the growth of community awareness. It’s called “Inner Goose Certification.”

At the foundation of this workshop is a text that came to me in a remarkable way this summer called ‘Five Lessons of Geese(click to read).

The premiere was at the Hive Open Mic on October 5th and here’s a Fairy to Celebrate its advent:

As we move forward in these uncertain times it’s important to find community. A wonderful assistance I’ve found for this is Jen Hofmann’s American’s of Conscience Checklist (click to connect). She’s a fan of Bluebird Fairies and I’m a fan of the way she’s engaging us in positive actions that assist us in creating communities we want to create.

On we go!

Have a great day!

Fairy of Good Grandpa

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

Art Hop was wonderful. Thank you to all who stopped in. Our studio had a magical feeling in it.


I used the opportunity of the South End Art Hop to celebrate the growth of my little line drawings into a company called Bluebird Fairies that bears the tag line- “Earnest Drawings to Help You Do BIG THINGS.”

For this I had an exhibit about my marriage to Brian Merrill this summer; the man I met 4 years ago when I first exhibited my “fairies.” I also performed my new ‘Fairy of the Day’ promoting Crankie Show, ‘Accomplishing Big Things’, 12 times to enthusiastic audiences on Saturday.


On Sunday a wonderful group of 16 gathered to sing along to the soundtrack of the movie HAIR. I was touched to be with others who know this music by heart.

Todays’ Fairy, picked at random, from the Bluebird Fairy Deck is:


’The Fairy of Good Grandpa’ has been showing up a lot recently. Good Grandpa contains all the energy you need to succeed in something. My Grandfather gave me this energy the entire time he was alive in my life. This fairy supports his ability to continue to do this.

In this instance, I know he’s supporting these next steps for Bluebird Fairies. The ones in which Bluebird Fairies begins growing into what it will be. I know, because of the ‘Good Grandpa’ it can.

Please take this amazing power into your own life. Have fun!

We’ll be in touch.
