Faery Get together at Sherwood May 16th
For all those who are interested in being a fairy character at Sherwood Forest Faire, or for those who simply wish to get in touch with their sprightly inner-sElves:
If that ain't you, please feel free to forward this invitation to your winged friends and relations.
The First semi once-in-a-while Faery Workshop Campout will take place
starting at 11:00 am Saturday May 16th at the Sherwood Forest
Fairegrounds! EarthMammaWillow, otherwise known as Faery-Coordinator
extraordinaire Brooke Chaney, will be our host. She and her team of
Faery experts will lead us through the do's and don'ts of faerydom,
the mannerisms of various common faeries (which you may develop your
own faery character from), and methods by which faeries may best
acquire shiny metal and square paper leaves from patrons. We will
learn to make cobwebs in trees, how to speak animal languages, and we
will dance in a fairy circle at the stroke of midnight. Basically a
regular business meeting for faery folk. I hope we will learn what in
the world a Seelie is... I thought it was a kind of mattress, but
apparently it has something to do with forest folk, and both seelie and non-seelie
fairies are welcome. * This just in- EarthMammaWillow says Seelies are happy, light faeries
and Un-Seelie are a bit more gloomy and dark* We're learning already!
Here is Earth Mamma Willows invitation to you:

Here are driving directions (Updated):
IMPORTANT: DO NOT follow the map from the website. That entrance is unfinished,
as is the new entrance with signs on 290.
Use these directions instead:
From Houston--- Take 290West. Getting close to Austin you will go
through a town called Giddings. Go all the way through, and about a
mile past Hwy 21- and you are very close. You will be looking for a
driveway on the right. There is a white 4'X8' blank sign beside the
gate. We will hang up a brightly colored butterfly kite on it to guide
you. (If you get to Old Potato Rd. you have gone just a little too
far. Turn around, and it is the third drive on the left.)
From Austin-- Go East on hwy 290 past Elgin. You will pass a road
called Old Potato Rd,
and the Entrance will be the third driveway on the left after that
(and more visible than
the first; the second is our new, unfinished, entrance--- dont try
it; youll get stuck). There will be a blank, white 4'X8'sign by the
gate. We will fly a Bright Butterfly kite on the sign to mark the
Careful coming in--- it is a very fast-moving part of the Hwy.
