Greetings friend!! 🧝‍♀️ I hope your week is off to a good start 💜

This past weekend I went to the Michigan Renaissance Festival, which was so much fun! I have lots of photos to share with you, but first I wanted to let you know that NEW MUSIC has been uploaded for early listeners (such as your magical self) on YouTube!! 🥳

It's my first 'autumn' video of the year, and includes a lovely new intro animation that is also by Camren. Look at those leaves! 🍂

This music takes place in the same kingdom as 'Beneath The Earth', so you'll hear some familiar sounds...

Harvest Festival

But while 'Beneath The Earth' is an exploration of wonders hidden deep below (gems, crystal caverns, ores), 'Harvest Festival' celebrates the earth's more above ground treasures, like golden fields, crisp apples, and bright pumpkins, which I tried to represent musically with a warmer sound. Let me know what you think! 💜

Now on to the aforementioned photos and general faire shenanigans:

My finished outfit ✨

First thing I did on arrival that morning was explore all the shops! You already know I enjoy making fantasy jewelry, art, and crafts, so it was incredibly inspiring to see so many similar things in one place 😊 I was especially excited about the tea shop!! 🫖

6 photos of the tea shop, the castle sign, the clothing shop, a jewelry cart, fairy-lights hanging from the ceiling, and a rack of flower crowns
Some of the sights 👀

It took me all day to visit every vendor, as well as hear the live music, watch the jousting, eat some yummy treats at the mermaid cafe, and see everyone's awesome costumes! There was everything from mushroom hatted pixies, to steampunk adventurers, to gothic vampires, to swashbuckling pirates, and I loved every minute of it, lol! 💜

Here's what I ended up bringing home with me - Definitely check out some of these creators, they were all super sweet and had beautiful works! ✨ (Fairydust Images, HB-Tea, Hazel Fern Scents, Moon Angel Jewelry, Autumn Moon LLC)

9 photos: 3 metal charms, a Celtic knot cupboard, steampunk necklace, Amy Brown fairy statue, corset, incense, wizard cat sticker, 2 candles, 2 types of tea
Was I a bit of a loot goblin?

That's all from me for now, so enjoy the new music and as usual,

Stay magical 🦋
