|Quick update now that Comic Con is over....
Yah, a lot is going on in my world these days:
First off I have been roped into creating a Masquerade Ball down here in San Diego for our very own Pagan Pride which will be held on August 8th. PLUS I am making about 4 costumes for it as well!
Next, Astra & Archer are in town for Comic Con. While at CC here are a few things that happened:
- The badge pickup line is much faster than you would expect!
- Comic Con is a SMALL WORLD in spite of 160,000 people!
- Comic Con babysitting ROCKS!
- Twilight Fans are insane!
- Mr Tiki's Lounge Happy Hour ROCKS especially with alchololic drink as big as my head, with a flame in the center & a long straw!
- Astra got the entire cast of Big Bang Theory to sign 4 pictures & 1 poster & gave me one of the free DVD sets for the second season tickets!!!
- Astra's Mom's car was stolen
- Got to see David & Lani!
- Archer bit the shit out of my hand when I grabbed him to keep him from running into the street!
- Steam Punk groups are AMAZING!! & there are so many here in San Diego... I'm smelling a new obsession thanks to Astra :P
- The largest Steam Punk picture was taken! Guinness Book of World Records took a picture too!
- I missed the True Blood signing at the WB booth BUT got to see the True Blood pannel & some free True Blood Goodies!
- I want the new True Blood drink when it comes out in September!!! Just because :P
- My roomates ROCK, they got me a charecter signing from Alexander (aka: Eric) in True Blood, THANKS!!
- Astra's Mom's car was FOUND!! Turns out she forgot where she parked it :P
- Went to Browncoats meeting on final Comic Con day & Nathan Fillion showed up & took it over!
- Astra got a birthday picture taken with Nathan too!
- We celebrated Astra's birthday at my place with a handful of friends & family
Well all that & one of my roommates is moving out but we may have already filled the room...

|I LOVE THIS!!! Thank you Astra!!
So recently I was told by my friend Astra that she bidded on a Browncoat charity for me:
"Quantum Mechanix (QMx) is sponsoring the "Name the Crappy Town Where You’re a Hero" charity auction. Starting on April 26th, 50 town names will be auctioned via eBay with all proceeds supporting Equality Now. If you win an auction, your name will be submitted, and pending studio approval, will be used in the upcoming official Atlas of the 'Verse, Volume One: The Trader's Guild Guide to the New Canaan Run made by our favorite mild-manner graphic designer, Ben Mund."http://www.austinbrowncoats.com/crappytown.php
She thought that it would be cool to name a town after ME!!! Well guess what!?!? She WON!!!!! If all goes well, "Elysium" will be the name of one of the towns in LONDINIUM.
He, he!! LOVE THIS!!! Current Mood: geeky

Not to mention that the Full Moon is just around the corner. Take a gander at the Moon Faery candles (Rythem & Cassiopia) & a new loose incense coming soon called "New Beginnings"!! Created on this past New Moon with all of the energy mustered during that time.
Coming soon, New Crowns! New Loose Incense, more jewelry & a fabulous pair of wings that I FINALLY finished!!! Current Mood: busy

|New Naughty Faery Creations STUFF!!
So I've been busy like a little bee but still am without my poor camera, though it's in the shop finally! So most of the new pictures are taken with a borrowed camera.
All things are cusom made & unique in their own way.
Let me know if any of you have questions about any of the items!! Current Mood: creative

|I am officially an Aunt...
Jayden Michael (not sure what last name she chose) was born at 3:50pm North Carolina time today. His other Aunt, Tasha cut his cord & says that he's the most adorable baby she's ever seen. Though she may be a bit biased. Current Mood: still sick

|Today is a good day...
I have plenty of firewood to last me a couple months at least. It has been raining today so I have a fire lit in the fireplace. My classes now have no less than 6 people in attendance & seem to be growing. I have my Crafting Sisterhood group that meets every Sunday & you better believe that we pack an energy punch when we get together no matter what we do, even if it's just goofing off. I have another order drying for Lady of the Lake. The house is clean, with the exception of my room. There are many homey touches that have been added all over for the past month & we are even talking about painting the living rooms. I have a new BBQ thanks to my Dad & his concern regarding the free BBQ that I found that seemed to have problems. The Kitties are very happy these days & I seem to have been adopted by another kitty outside who we all call Sox, original I know, but the whole complex calls him that, lol. And last but not least, the new roommate moves in during the next week, possibly even this weekend, depending on current roommate moving out her things.
Now I just need to finalize my Unemployment back payments, still waiting for news on that. I need to get my camera fixed still. And I need to find a secondary form of employment to make sure that I have plenty to do the things I want to continue doing.
All things considered, the Universe has been treating me rather well this past couple of weeks!
So, what are all of YOU thankful for? Current Mood: content

|The Thirteen Days of Yuletide SALE!!!
The Thirteen Days of Yuletide SALE!!!
I’ve been pretty quiet lately because I’ve been busy coming up with & perfecting some new items to come starting mid January, not to mention the fact that my camera is STILL broken so taking pictures of items is a little bit of a pain right now. However, I have been biting my nails until this time so that I can do the sale that I’ve always wanted to!! The Thirteen Days of Yuletide!! Formerly the Twelve Days of Christmas, however I will be visiting family for a few days & won’t have access to all of my websites as often as I can when I’m home… why don’t ALL of my friends & family have ME on their wireless or even HAVE wireless internet!?!?!

|Fun idea for more than just the San Diego area...
Handmade By Heathens!!! Current Mood: geeky
So I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that I have some very imaginative & talented friends. There are so many people out there suffering from the economical crisis that with the Holidays looming in front of us things are looking kind of bleak. So a few of us decided to “Buy Handmade” this year to help our own communities & friends along, & with thisy we came up with the idea of “Handmade By Heathens”. Simply put this is a situation where we all either sell together at a booth or one day open our home to friends, family & others to come in & brows all of our wares & buy some fantastically special handmade items!! So to kick this off I am proposing to open my home for first perusal!!
So on Saturday, December 6, 2008 from 1pm to 4pm the first Handmade By Heathens event!!
Followed by a Prosperity Witch Bottle Class from 5 to 7pm done in the style of my good friend Astra. Unfortunately she will not be able to attend in person, but definitely in spirit.
The location is 7668 Normal Ave., La Mesa CA 91941.
For questions about the event or if you would like to be one of our “Handmade Heathen Creators” feel free to contact Elysia at 619-955-7613
Future events are still up in the air, but if you would like to host a "Handmade By Heathens" party let me know.
Keep your heads above water & stay calm... any mishaps/problems/etc. will pass soon enough.
BTW, he, he... check out www.naughtyfaerycreations.com
, they BOTH now link to the Etsy page!!!! WOOT!!!!
LA this weeked... anyone want to claim my attention other than on Friday night? I'll be at Ruin.

|Sylmar Fires & Evacuations...
So my Aunt & her boys are right on the boarder of the mandatory evacuation line & the voluntary evacuation line. I've talked to her this morning & they are packed & ready to go but staying until they hear that they have been added to the mandatory evacuation list. It just reminds me of last year hear in San Diego when it seemed like all of San Diego was on fire.
My heart goes out to everyone who's lost homes in these fires & fire in general.
Damn, this sux. Current Mood: worried

|Today was a GOOD day!!!
After feeling like I had the week from hell; job search sucking, unemployment constantly being to busy to answer a call, missing clients before their big trip who are buying 10 candles wholesale from me so now I have to wait till they get back at the end of the month, crazy lady who I WAS working for freaking out & not paying me what she owes me, & NOT haveing all of my rent STILL in hand... yah, this week sucked. However today was a really good day.
I drove up with my friend Karina to Pagan Pride LA to teach a class & see friends, etc. Sold 2 candles & 3 packs of incense & had almost 30 people attend my class!!! May not sound like many to you but when you are doing a class opposite of Jamie Wood who is an author & into Faerie Magick herself, you never know who's going to be there... but all went really well. I didn't get to hang out with some people quite as much as I would have liked, but I did have a lot of new people asking questions & talking about varrious things. I know my friends understood & I so love them for that. It was fun, it felt right & had my little faerie voices seem to be jumping up & down with joy. I even got to hang out with Liz & Todd which was wonderful too. It really was one of those moments when I felt like I'm heading in the right direction. Current Mood: enthralled

|Need NEW clients!!!
If you or anyone you know needs someone to keep them on track I've been freelancing as a Personal Assistant. Two of my current clients are squared away & now I'm looking to fill their spots. Yah, I'm THAT good. Seriously. Please e-mail me if you need research done, or even live in my area & need someone to keep you organized. Naughty Faery Creations keeps me busy, but it's not yet consistant. So if you would like help, let me know. I'll send you refrances, a resume & list of specialties.
Pass it on!
In other news, Autumn Equinox candles are up & ready to ship NOW. All Hallows Eve are looking amazing too, by the way. I now have 16 different stick incense scents as well. Yah, my neighbors LOVE me! The woman next door stopped by to ask why there are always so many mouth watering scents comming from my windows, then took 3 packs of incense for her kind words after a little tour.
I'll be at Pagan Pride LA on Oct. 5th teaching a class on "Faeries in your Home; From Mischief to Messengers" & will have both samples to give away & candles to smell that I MAY be persueded to part with if you have to have them NOW!! LOL
Hope all of you are doing well!

|Writer's Block: Missing from Nature
If one thing were to be stricken from nature, what could you stand to see go?
Fleas & Mosquitoes... they love me to pieces... LITERALLY!!!! & I see no real reason for them existing anymore!!! Current Mood: tired
|Friday, August 29th, 2008|
I've been a tad busy lately but wanted to drop in to let some of you know that there is now a Naughty Faery Etsy store up!! So until the Website get's up you will all be able to purchase creations from yours truly. With Faerie Con comming up as well as Halloween, (or All Hallow's Eve as we like to call it :P), or even if you just need that touch of "Faerie Magick". There are a few of my crowns, headdresses, *New* Dragon Rosaries (& VERY soon Faery Rosaries as well), photography with faery inspirational words of wisdom, *NEW* Faery Borrowing Candles, & Faery Inspired Incense.
Enjoy & let me know if you have any questions.
OH!! & there will be a special Sample pack for incense & candle smells that can be purchased on their own, however, you do get a similar pack with every purchase in general.
I go back to the creation caves now, LOL!! Current Mood: busy

|OMG!! I now have things in TWO stores...
It's really starting!!!
I've been going around to various stores sharing my wares, etc. Controversial Book Store in San Diego has both Faery Borrowing Candles & 9 different kinds of Incense packs & I just got a call from a chain called Lady of the Lake for 12 different kinds of incense they want to carry!!
It's starting!! It's a tad frightening, but exciting at the same time!! Current Mood: ecstatic
|Friday, August 15th, 2008|
|And so it begins!!!
I now have candles & incense in my first store!!!
It's always funny when the owner tells you that you need to charge more for your items & sells them accordingly, lol! I think from the reaction from their scents they will sell really well too.
Some of them are truly unique scents that smell amazing if I do say so myself!
The Etsy store is up too! Stop in for a looksee & enjoy!http://TheNaughtyFaery

|Need to remind myself not to think too hard...

|Comic Con 2008
Wow, what a ride!!
Comic Con was a blast!! Sure I didn’t get to do some of the panels that I wanted to go to but here’s what DID happen…
Got to meet Frank Beddor the author of “The Looking Glass Wars” & got a signed copy of his book plus a few posters & a CD for my aunt. He even asked if he could take a picture with Astra & I on the day we were in costume.
The costume went over really well. All of that hard work really felt like it paid off, & I’m sure to get even more “ooh’s” & “aaah’s” at Faerie Worlds this week.
We picked up our free copies of the book Astra & I are in called “Wonder Women of America”. Yep we have really great pictures in it with our own quotes too!! Now we can officially say we’re published!! LOL!!
While wearing my costume on Saturday I was called over by a random girl who turns out saw me & overtly took pictures of me the day before in my Skull dress & Pin Up look & sent them to her husband. Turns out that they want me to be a model for their clothing line! LOL!! I’ve already made peace with the fact that I will always be considered “plus sized” no matter how much weight I lose, but it’s still really cool when someone wants to photograph you for something that is important to them. I was flattered & we’ll see where it goes in the next coming months.
I made a few great contacts regarding my crowns & outside sales.
I will be donating some prize pieces of my creations to a great charity that really is something that is more than close to my heart for many ways. I hope that the things that I can give them do well for them. I’m also going to be talking to some of my other artist friends, as well as some of the major artists while at Faerie Worlds to donate some things as well. More later on which charity this is later.
Now begins the final stages of getting ready for Faerie Worlds, packing, last minute preparations, etc. It’s strange to feel both petrified & excited at the same time!

Wing Making & Faery Costume Conceptualizing
Did you know that there is a Masquerade Ball every year known as the Labyrinth of Jareth Ball? Yep, it's a night when "Faeries" dress up in their finery to party for two entire amazing nights in Los Angeles at The Henry Fonda Theater on July 11th & 12th. With any luck I will be able to attend yet again this year & will be able to show you (hopefully) the final stages of my OWN costume for this amazing event & for Comic Con this year as well!! But don't think that you will leave this event empty handed! We will be discussing the mind warping thing that to some of us is known as Costume Conceptualizing. It's really a lot easier than you think; it just takes a little imagination & some very inventive tools. We will also be starting to make the very trademark of Faeries, WINGS!! I'll show you a few tips that I've learned along the way & some simple ways to take some mundane items from home & make them AMAZING!!
Items you will need to bring; at least 4 wire coat hangers (ALL wire is best!), at least 2 pairs of sheer stockings or panty hose (any color, but know that the color you use will be the base color of your wings), Ribbon, Paints of your choosing, & floral additives & fun things to glue to the body of the wings themselves! (Some suggestions are flat bottom marbles, puffy paints, light buttons, confetti, feathers, silk greenery or flowers, etc.)
This is a pot luck so bring your favorite drink, food, dessert to share!! Donations of any kind are ALWAYS accepted (some have been firewood, flowers, herbs, oils, misc craft items that I can use, & the obvious… money). Message me for directions & phone number if needed!
Hope to see you there!! Current Mood: busy
