camp cactus fairy infestation

Last week, while working in the studio at Camp Cactus, a sudden small movement outside the window caught my eye...I crept quietly outside and caught a glimpse of tiny purple wings and the most melodious singing I think I've ever heard. As I watched and listened, I slowly became aware of the faint strains of a tiny mandolin accompanying the otherworldy voice, and began to notice

more and more movement and sounds, much like when you stand very still in the forest and slowly become aware of the trees, the leaves, the dew and the insects and the birds: all the layers of the natural world come into focus when we're still and attentive. Just as I realized what I was witnessing, these little creatures started to speak to me (No, not really...this is what you might call a fairy tale) and told me that they were drawn to my little studio to help me spread joy and magic to the neighborhood. I asked them if they'd like to visit the Camp Cactus Holiday Sale, and they assured me they'd be there. (The little granny fairy made sure to request that I lay in supplies of moonshine and blackberry wine for the party on opening night)
Hope we see you there!
