(April 2008) u.f.o. NEWS
a sorta bloggish spot
So I missed updating my web-site the ENTIRE month of March!
I am still here and TRYING to get on top of the urban fairies' advancements.
I was also informed of a short film by some University of Michigan students which features a couple of the fairy doors and one goblin door. HOWEVER, I suspect that the fairies portrayed in the movie are not ACTUAL fairies. WARNING: PG-13 may be too scary for small children. Includes scenes of intense "fairy" violence.
The Fairy Festival in Jackson, Michigan is happening on:
I am scheduled to be there from 12-2, signing books and answering questions.
OH! and the Fairy Doors made The Ann Arbor News' "Field of 64".
||I'm bummed that I missed the Festival of Fools Parade yesterday.
||The 1st annual Jackson, Michigan Fairy Festival went really well!
I think everyone had a grand time. It was well attended even considering the 40° tempertures and the SNOW! Unfortunately I did not get to see or participate in all the events, but I did get to meet some really great people while talking about urban fairies and while signing books. There should be some pics posted and I will get links to them. I was not able to take many, myself, as I was quite busy the whole time. Many thanks to Jennifer at Pink Heels for organizing the event.
I imagine that Bill Chapin's plug for the event in the Jackson Citizen Patriot help boost attendance.
||I heard about a fairy door at the Viking Sewing Center quite some time ago. I went and took oictures, but with computer problems they got lost in the shuffle. I went out and took new ones. Viking is hosting an event and that reminded me to get these up.
||Something happy! The Selo Shevel urban fairy door is fixed! They must have been waiting for nice weather.|
||Bit by bit I am getting things straightened out.
I updated some links to people who are selling fairy doors.
Maybe I should be selling them too... nope.
I am still annoyed with the "Ench*nted F*iry D**rs"....grrrr.
The *'s are there in order to avoid any unintentional free advertising by way of search engines.
||Finally, after months of inactivity at the Ark, there are new fairy tickets!|
