PA Fairie Festival Application Text
Hi, it has been 3 years, I believe, since I last participated in the Faerie Festival, and I hope that you will once again let me join the fun.
I have 3 main products that I would like to bring.  My Hair Sticks, my Wood Carvings, and my Cast Stone.  I will describe each briefly.
Hair Sticks:
Most of you are probably familiar with hair sticks, but for those of you who aren't, they are an ornamental and efficient way of putting up long hair.  What makes my hair stick unique is the fact that I make the sticks themselves.  Most sticks you see are pretty beads added to imported sticks made of wood or bone.   These imported sticks are easily broken.   Mine are handmade by me in a ten step process, and they are quite sturdy.  The unique bumpy spiral shape of the sticks holds them in the hair better than other sticks, as well.  I have the largest variety of sticks you will ever see, with over 100

Personal Quote: Everything is a song cue!
I haven't been very active here in months.  I'm glad you all like the new pieces.  Part of the problem is that I've been inspired to do bigger pieces, that take time and motivation to finish.  The other problem has been that the Tung Oils that I use for colors have gone out of production.  I found a new source for a closely related product, that I have yet to try.  I have a show coming up in 3 weeks, where I display my wood.  I guess I had better get busy. I'll try to post when the show is over.

  • Listening to: Humididty.
  • Reading: Japanese symobology.
  • Watching: Too much TV.
  • Playing: Nothing. It is time to make the hairsticks.
  • Eating: Badly, still.
  • Drinking: Coffee, blonde but not sweet.
