Shop Update

Hi All..

I am posting an update about what has been going on lately. I have been trying to move and settle into my new shop. I really love it! The skylights are amazing. I am still unpacking but I thought I would take a few photos to share. I have a couple of projects I have been working on. One is a Skeksis from our Rise of the Skeksis trailer for a commission and two is a new troll creation. I have a few more lined up down the table but I will save those until they are finished...

The Skeksis is a collaboration of sculpting by Bill Diamond and I did some painting, the staff and costuming. If you are interested in a Rise of the Skesis...skeksis....send me an email and I can give you a quote.

There are a few items in my etsy shop just made active again here https://www.etsy.com/shop/FairyWillow. And I will be sending out a newsletter update soon with more goodies. Thanks for all those still hanging in there through my transition!

Fairy Blessings :O)

Moving week and Eva Cassidy

Hi all, Hope to share a real update soon! I am packing up my shop and we will be moving to a new and better studio! And the new studio will be GREMLIN free! ;O)

Listening to some of my favorite (transition) songs while I clear out some old things yet again. One of my favorite singers is Eva Cassidy. Sadly though she had such a beautiful voice and was so absolutely talented ... she passed away from cancer at age 33 in 1996. I never heard her until a few years later and wish I could have heard her sing in person.... Take a listen to the most amazing voice. And if you are interested ... here is her story https://youtu.be/bXU219b3Zdw

1920's Speak Easy Gala

Thought I would share a project we just finished this week. I painted two murals and there are lots of other little props made today too. Hopefully I get more good pics from the crew once this is set up. We got this last minute and worked down to the deadline.

There is a secret entrance/exit to the bootleg joint for all the party goers :O)

Richie did and awesome job.. he built the structure in ONE DAY! like woah! rock on!







Updated with photos from the hotel with everything all set up! I wonder what the secret password is :O)





The ladies at the party look so cute in their 1920's dresses! I decorated the cigar box holder and it looks like it fits perfect!

Happy New Year and Flashback


Hi all! I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope that all of your faerie wishes come true at the New Years Ball!


And I wanted to take a moment for a flashback rewind to the old days for me. I remember all the great concerts me and my friends used to save our change and any little bit of money we pulled together at our fast food jobs just to get to the show in town on the weekend. One of my absolute favorites was Jon Bon Jovi! He always sings with such emotion and powerful energy. If any of you were ever there at one of his concerts you will remember how he would fly across the crowd with a a harness... I can remember him stopping for a song right above me once so close I could jump up and grab him ... I ALMOST did lol!

Some of the girls would wear ball gowns to the concerts. How time flies when you are having fun! This song brings back lots of lost memories for me. And its a good one to say goodbye and end the events of 2016 going into the new...thought I would share.

((hugs to you all)) You know who you are...

A little Scrooge rant before Christmas...

Hi All

It has come to my attention yet again that a certain artist is copying my work. She even sent out a christmas notice to her customers with a troll painted face just like my etheric elves with a jewel in the forehead. She is from Norway and one would think that her being born in the home of the trolls would inspire her own original ideas... yet not. So I decided to write a poem to the Scrooge Shirley on this fine holiday.

And also announce that I will begin a secret section that only my customers can sign up and have access to see private listings. That way no one will have access to certain trolls except the buyers. Look for that section coming soon! Tammy



Troll Scrooge Shirley
by Tammy

Shirley Shirley the copycat
Stealing ideas and inspirations
How dare you take from others joy
And soil their aspirations!

Shirley Shirley surely has talent of her own
if only she understood how true artists have grown
Through our own hard work, trial and error
From our dreams and visions!

Shirley Shirley surely wishes to be like us!
They say that imitation is the surest form of flattery...
And being inspired is one thing ...but not searches from bing!
Not when stealing from our art supply money
And our livelyhood to pay our bills, honey!

You undercut our prices and lie to the collectors,
The fans that know us all and have an eye for beauty!
Shirley surely they know you are a Scrooge this christmas
Stealing the art from all the other artists holiday sales!
Santa surely has you on his naughty list...
For your art compared to ours Shirley, surely PALES!

Siberian Falcon, the beautiful Circa

I thought I would share the day here at the studio with you all. We got a visit today from a beautiful Siberian Falcon mix from Russia. Her name is Circa and she is 6 months old. Her owner who is an experienced bird of prey handler brought her out for a while. She has a barn she shares with a lovely owl that will be making a guest appearance with Fairy Willow characters look for that coming soon.

She was absolutely beautiful and well behaved.  We were all freezing and she was perfectly at home.

The Gnomes Winter Gift!

Their gift and my gift to you ! I had the idea to try and combine all of the crazy art forms that I know in one holiday short. Sadly I ran out of time to get as much in as I wanted. So much to do!

I was late getting this out and had hoped to have it done by the first. Hope you all enjoy and love to hear comments!

Rupert and Ludo

Linda sent the cutest photo of Rupert in his new home! The tiny little guy next to him is Ludo named after Ludo from the Labyrinth! Isn't he adorable? Rupert is about 6 almost 7 inches tall so that tells you exactly how tiny little Ludo is. So cute. 

Thanks Linda for letting me share your photo!

Its October-watchout for the Gremlins!!!

Oh what an awesome blog post I have today... I got to meet Mark Dodson, he stopped by my shop for a visit. And brought something so awesome and amazing that I had to run and get my camera! Any Gremlin fans out there?? Well here is the unboxing... of one of the original Gremlins from the 1984 movie kept in the best near mint condition possible by Mark. It has recently been acquired by a collector and is with us for some restoration work. He will be on display at the Witch's Dungeon museum for Halloween!

Here are the photos... he still looks like a creepy little devil. Mark is an amazing voice actor and did the voices for creatures in Starwars and the Gremlins. Maybe one day soon we can talk him into switching to TROOOLLLS! oh yea ;O) He sounded up for it !! How exciting...

Please take a minute to visit Marks site here http://www.markdodson.com/ for some great Gremlin sha-grins!
