The Writers... oh, the Writers. What would we do without them? What would we read? Who would tell our stories? Who would help us know how to understand the world by letting us know we're not the only ones who don't?
The Writers in our lives also help to keep us accountable, because they tend to hold that old Nora Ephron sentiment that "everything is copy". And this is a good thing. Sometimes we need to be reminded that we're making history with each moment we're living. Something the threat of the written word is the only thing that can keep us accountable, keep us open, keep us safe.
THE ROCKS AND STONES THAT MADE ME • $10
The Rocks and Stones That Made Me is a meditative essay on the nature of the geological landscape I grew up in. With a "Thoreau-like sensibility" I ponder the powerful energies that seem to be present in the area where I grew up and where I find myself living again.
This essay is an attempt to reconcile the metaphysical with the scientific, without giving up anything meaningful and magical in the process.
Sure to please the Earth Faerie in your life, this one is full of interesting geological, historical, and metaphysical information.
SLEEPY ANIMALS COLORING ZINE & STICKER PACK • $10
A precious little one-page zine and sticker combo set! The coloring book features four black & white drawings of very sleepy animals, each one waiting to be colored in by the magical Earth Faerie you're shopping for. Each coloring zine also comes with three (3) medium-sized & wonderfully precious full color paper stickers, each one of a different sleepy animal.
A great secret-santa, stocking or card stuffer, this $10 deal is sure to put a big smile on their face (and give them something to do if they get bored during the holiday!)
the HELLO! EARRINGS • $24
If the Earth Faerie in your life has pierced ears, these beautiful and powerful pendulum earrings might be a lovely option. Hung from sterling silver ear wires, a chain is balanced by a copper tube and a rutilated quartz sphere below.
Designed to help attenuate and align energy, even in chaotic situations, the design of these earrings help to draw down energy while simultaneously releasing that which no longer serves the wearer.
They are also shiny and earthy in an understated glamorous sort of way - just what the Faerie in us all is looking for!
LOVELY BEASTS OF WINTER STICKER SHEET & POEM • $7
Everyone loves stickers, and Earth Faeries are no exception! This sticker sheet is full of the Earthly magic the holiday season is known for, and the precious depictions of the little elements that make up that magic serve as a wonderful reminder of that space and energy all year round.
The poem included is inspired by the night world and the dreams that ferry us through it, while we stay sheltered by the natural world, asleep. It is also about our response to trauma - something that many of the Earth Faeries we love have been inordinately effected by.
Pairing these two together might seem strange - but, for me, it is this balance of light and dark that allows for the joy and sweetness of the stickers to be felt the most deeply. I'm sure your precious Earth Faerie will agree.
INCIENSO DE SANTA FE INCENSE • $4
For the Earth Faerie in your life, the smell of wood is probably an elemental joy. Made by a family owned company based in New Mexico, these incense bricks are made solely of wood dust that is sustainably harvested and produced.
Each scent is cleansing and grounding, and these sticks are a great way to cleanse and bless any space.
Having a hard time deciding which scent to choose? Try the sampler! These mixed packs make a beautiful and thoughtful gift - they even come with a little burner!
WISE & LOVING BATS DIVINATION BOARD • $15
My Wise and Love Bats are featured on many different items in the Love Bazaar - but the Earth Faerie in your life most likely already has a divination practice or is looking to start one, and so this is the Wise & Loving Bats item to make it into this guide.
A square, laminated, two sided mat, this Divination Board features four quadrants, each with a different bat, message, and affirmation reading. The board can be used with a pendulum or with casting lots, or any other way one sees fit.
The affirmative readings found on the backside of the mat are powerfully open ended, allowing the reader to take a different meaning each time they come to the board with a different question.
If you want to help your Earth Faerie start or enhance their divination practice, you might also wish to include a Pendulum Kit in your gift to them!
CRYSTALS ARE FRIENDS STICKER SHEET & POEM • $7
Oh, what could be better than stickers of crystals? I dunno - maybe a whole sheet of them?? Oh, and a poem and coloring sheet too? If that's your way of thinking, it's no wonder you're friends with an Earth Faerie, cause that's probably what they'd think, too!
This sticker sheet is filled with beautiful images made from scans of silkscreened prints I made onto tie-dyed paper towels, back in the mid 2010s. These stickers are colorful, geometric, geological, and just plain awesome.
The poem paired with this sheet is an ode to the gloriousness in each and every one of us - an ode to the ancestral wonder we all carry with us and the power we might find is we learn to serve and honor it with righteousness and self love.
FINKY AT OLD NEW-GATE POSTCARD PACK • $7.50
Finky the Ratt, my beloved cartoon character and best friend, is a true Earth Faerie at heart. That's why he insisted on being drawn into the magical macro spaces I photographed about the Old New-Gate Prison and Copper Mine grounds.
Each of the five postcards show Finky in a different scene and setting, as he goes about his days during his residency at New-Gate, during which time he worked on his forthcoming book, LOVE LOVE LOVE. Or at least that's what he told me to illustrate!
These cards are perfect for sending through the mail but they are also worthy of framing. A little gallery of mixed media prints, all for $7.50? That's a deal, baby!
