I keep getting caught up and pulled under.

Fantasy Faire 2017 is coming soon! A short while ago the themes for ten worlds were announced, and this seemed a good time to reflect back on the past creations of some of the people making their windows into the infinite this year.
I wanted to start with Elicio Ember's Cerridwen's Cauldron. Although Ember said he had to step back from creating a sim this year, he's been a staple of years past and he makes amazing windows into fantastic realms. His worlds are always marked by brilliant colors, glimmering patterns in cut glass, striking architecture, great heights and depths, and wild plants which defy gravity. His Sea of Mer (see the end) was the first Fantasy Faire sim I ever took pictures of and blogged about, and it will always hold a special place in my heart due to that.
What's most fascinating, looking back, is seeing the jump in skill and technology from year to year. I've become so much more sophisticated, and so has the faire itself.

Ember's Cauldron is still going on, a grid-wide shopping experience to support Elicio Ember and his father. I'm using things you can get at three different stores - my skin and clothing from Fallen Gods, my pendant from Touryuumon, and the garden I'm flying over from Simply Shelby.

Sn@tch is currently releasing one of her seasonal grab bags, with twenty-one outfit bits available in shades of pink, purple, and blue. There's a little bit of everything, from this ultra-brief look to some longer dresses suitable for a classy garden party. There are some new lucky boards nearby as well, and even some riot vendors ready for a sudden rush. The view is misty and gorgeous, and it's a lovely way to spend a few hours fishing up bags for March parties.

We're almost a week into the Ember's Cauldron event to support Elicio Ember and his father as the latter fights his way back from a stroke. Each store is hosting their item and a donation cauldron, and the bloggers involved are featuring many of Ember's gorgeous flowers and phatasmagoria for sale in his store, Cerridwen's Cauldron. There's a HUD available for easy transportation, or you can follow one of the handy links below in my alphabetical list. I've also included an image of what the area tends to look like in each of the stores along with a picture of the HUD, but it's pretty easy to find!

Elicio Ember, the creator of Cerridwen's Cauldron, needs our help. His father had a stroke and needs expensive treatment but doesn't have insurance to cover it - and this is where we can come in! Two events are being staged to raise money for Ember and his father; Ember's Cauldron from March 15th to April 16th, and Filling the Cauldron from April 1st to April 9th.There is also a GoFundMe being run by a friend of his.
I don't know Ember personally, but I remember his builds from the Fantasy Faire fondly and one of his color-changing flowers is a centerpiece to my home. I can't imagine what he's going through, or how his father is struggling, but my heart goes out to them both. I hope that together we can support Ember and his father to ensure he has the best possible care.
