This is going to be great. I went to the fairy name generator and got a fairy name. Lol. My fairy name is Meadow Elffilter She is cheerful and friendly. She lives in fields where wild flowers and poppies grow. She can only be seen on midsummer's eve. She wears a skirt made of red petals and has transparent green wings like a cicada.

Oh goodie gumdrops!! I can't wait for everything to get underway. :icon_chee

 

@chelsealady, the name generator is a fun idea. I went and got a name too, but it has to grow on me, lol! Guess I need to update my profile now.

 

My fairy name is: Hemlock Moonwand

She is a messenger of the moon goddess. She lives close to vixen and badger sets. She can only be seen when the seeker holds a four-leafed clover. She wears black and white like a badger and has bright blue butterfly wings.

She wears bright clover green and has delicate green coloured wings like a cicada. But you can call me PRINCESS BUTTERCUP!

Thanks for organizing!

Unfortunately, I think that this round is only going to be open for signups to people who did SeSa 2013.  But, really, the true fun is in the slumber party-ness of the discussion thread and fairying!  There's no prerequisite for being a fairy.  Definitely hang out and chat with us, though, so we can get to know you for the real SeSa in November/December!  It's more fun putting packages together for people we *know*!

^We should probably stick this in the first post on the thread or something. Or are we still working out the official 'rules'? 

My fairy name is Hazel Yewglimmer. :love:

She casts spells of enchantment. She lives in places hexed and tainted by black magic. She can only be seen when the sun sets on the day of a completed harvest. She wears black feathers and rose petals and has russet-coloured wings like a brightly coloured butterfly.

I'm sticking with the name @magicalmom (mortal Queen Hippolyta) gave me -- Titania, Queen of the Fairies -- but the fairy name generator gave me:

Quote:
Cherry PepperwandShe plays tricks on small children and old folk. She lives in fruit orchards and vineyards. She can only be seen when the seeker holds a four-leafed clover. She wears red, cerise and purple berry colours and has autumnal brown wings, like a butterfly.

 

Here's the weird part:  My middle name -- which wasn't entered into the generator -- actually means orchard or vineyard.

 

In completely unrelated news, I wish that _X-Men 3_ didn't suck as hard as it does.  I'm watching _X-Men: First Class_ (less than five weeks until _Days of Future Past_!  Eeeee!), and I really want to watch the stinger for _X3_ because MOIRA!, but I despise the director and refuse own it.  Maybe I can coax my connection into lasting long enough for me to watch it on YouTube.  It likes to stall out frequently.

I already have some gift ideas for about 25% of the people participating so far... This probably means I spend too much time on here, but oh well! :icon_redf

I'm the love fairy! I wonder how it knew from my name that fall is my favorite season, partly because my birthday is often the first day of autumn? And that purple and green are my favorite colors, especially for nail polish (hint, hint)? My fairy name is Juniper Vinetree She brings couples together. She lives in clear-headed pine forests. She can only be seen when the first leaves fall from the trees. She wears purple juniper colours and has gentle green butterfly wings

A note on the fairy thing from Titania, Queen of the Fairies and Hand of Queen Hippolyta: This all started because bossy big sister right here was trying to come up with a summer version of SeSa elves, aka the helpers who would act as go-betweens for Santas and Santees. Unless you post in the Casting Call thread volunteering your services, I'm not adding you to the helper list, and if you *do* post over there asking to be added to the list, you are volunteering to be a helper fairy. Neither of these places are signing up to be in the swap itself. I'm starting to get confused about who is volunteering to fairy and who is just getting into the spirit of the theme, and that's not a good thing for a fairy wrangler to be. Thanks!

Yes!  If you'd like to be a helper fairy, please volunteer in the Fairy Recruiting thread (meaganola posted a link upthread).  If you want to have a fun fairy name, GO FOR IT!  All are welcome to be beautiful fairies, but the HELPER FAIRIES must read the "job description" on the other thread (to make sure it's something you want to do) and volunteer there.

 

Thanks, my lovelies!  We're trying to keep this as organized as (humanly) possible!  Looks like Puck is already up to his usual mischief.  Silly boy fairies.

Haha and everyone now has their fairy names AND Halloween costumes! Queen Hippolyta here. Everyone can have a fairy name! You don't have to volunteer to pick a fairy name!

She lives in high places where the clouds meet the earth. She can only be seen in the light of a shooting star. She wears raven-black feathers and has bright blue butterfly wings.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
