On Saturday, April 1st, we launched Filling the Cauldron to help friend and Second Life creator Elicio Ember and his family deal with their father’s medical situation (read more here and here). Since then, we’ve had a wonderful response from people who have taken the time to visit the event in-world, shop at the marketplace, […]

Elicio Ember of Cerridwen’s Cauldron needs some help. His father had a serious stroke and the family is reeling from the medical bills. Elicio has been one of the driving forces in the RFL efforts, specifically for Fantasy Faire.
If you’ve attended any of the Fantasy Faires, you have seen Elicio’s work.
A fundraising effort called Filling the Cauldron continues till April 9. You can donate directly to kiosks throughout the site, purchase things in the marketplace or at the auctions or donate at the live events. DJs, performances and a photo contest run throughout the weekend.

I strolled through the art display wearing featured items from the April Designer Showcase. I love the look of this dress from Ghee. The handkerchief hem is very flattering. I paired it with Ghee’s own heels and jewelry from Moondance. I love the simplicity of this jewelry set, which compliments rather than fighting for prominence with the outfit.

Filling the Cauldron Schedule and Information https://cauldronweb.wordpress.com/

Filling the Cauldron April 1~9

By – Aznana’s Fantastic Fandangles. Visit Filling the Cauldron April 1~9 for original post.

One of SL’s favorite creators of magical environments, Elicio Ember from Cerridwen’s Cauldron, has given and given and is now on the receiving end of the great cycle. A serious stroke suffered by his father has left Elicio and his sisters with incredible medical expenses. The medical situation in Mexico, where Elicio and his family reside, does not provide reasonable medical support for the care and rehabilitation that will be required.
Dozens of artists, musicians, and creators who only know Elicio through his creations and generosity have banded together to fill his “Cauldron” – raising money to help Elicio and his family.The fantasy creators who will be bringing you Fantasy Faire at the end of April have taken time from their busy schedules to dedicate their talents to help and you get to help, too.

There are several ways you can help out:
You can donate directly to the Ember’s Cauldrons you see in some of the finest fantasy stores across the grid OR purchase special items at participating shops OR  you can visit the Filling the Cauldron Event and enjoy the art exhibits, marketplace or live shows between April 1-9.

Filling the Cauldron opens in Second Life

Re-printed from the Filling the Cauldron blog. Filling the Cauldron – our week-long fund-raiser between April 1st and April 9th, aiming to raise money to help Second Life creator Elicio Ember and his family -is NOW OPEN!! Elicio is one of SL’s brilliant creators and a gifted artist. He’s known for his highly imaginative plants […]

Filling the Cauldron

Residents are familiar with the large scale fundraising activities on the Second Life Grid: mustering a world-wide volunteer base on an economic virtual platform to raise thousands of dollars for such causes as the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, Live and Learn in Kenya’s “Feed a Smile,” Creations Park’s work to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Hundreds of volunteers donate time, talent, and treasure to make these virtual activities have a real world impact.

Every now and again the opportunity comes along for such efforts to be personal. Filling the Cauldron – Saturday April 1st through Sunday, April 9th – is such an opportunity.

Elicio Ember is a brilliant Second Life creator and artist, known for highly imaginative plants and fantasy designs provided through his Cerridwen’s Cauldron brand, and for his generous spirit and his involvement in charitable events such as Fantasy Faire. A serious stroke suffered by his father has left Elicio and his sisters with profound medical expenses. The medical situation in Mexico, where Elicio and his family reside, does not provide reasonable medical support for the care and rehabilitation that will be required. Dozens of artists, musicians, and creators who only know Elicio through his creations and generosity have banded together to fill his “Cauldron” – raising money to help Elicio and his family.

Filling the Cauldron is a week-long celebration of Elicio’s work in Second Life beginning this Saturday, April 1st. The nine day jubilee will feature live performances, music, over 20 vendor stalls (including Roawenwood, Ozimals, and Fallen Gods), an Art Show with the work of supportive artists as well as Elicio’s own works, and both silent and live auctions of unique items contributed to the fundraising effort by their creators. Live events kick off at 9 am slt Saturday with musician Lazarus Doghouse.

The Holly Kai Estate is host to all these features and more. Over half a dozen designers have created fanciful gardens using pieces from the Cerridwen’s Cauldron catalogue for the Design a Garden Contest. Visitors can vote for their favorite garden creation, as well as place their votes in the Filling the Cauldron Photo Contest. Cerridwen’s Corner will provide an opportunity to purchase a sampling of Elicio’s creations, and to visit his main store.

This amazing gathering of talent clearly pays tribute to Ember’s contributions to Second Life as both artist and generous spirit, including pieces from his real world artworks available in the silent auction. “So many people have been touched by Elicio’s kindness, and found joy in his art,” said Inara Pey, organizer, “This is such a tremendous tribute to the many lives he has touched.” “There are so many unique one-of-a-kind items to be got at this event,” added Saffia Widdershins, also among the organizers, “I hope that people will take advantage of the opportunity to get some of these items and have it benefit such a wonderful person and his family when they really need the help.”

Filling the Cauldron officially opens at 12:00am slt on Saturday, April 1st and continues until midnight on Sunday, April 9th.

Fantasy Faire 2017: The Fairelands on the Horizon & Filling the Cauldron

By Caitlin Tobias – Cait’s World. Visit Fantasy Faire 2017: The Fairelands on the Horizon & Filling the Cauldron for original post.

THE event of the year, since years in Second Life for me is:  The Fantasy Faire. And I am thrilled, excited ánd very proud that the FF 2017 organisation again asked me to contribute on the official Fantasy Faire website/blog as guest author and as photographer.

The Fantasy Faire 2017 will span 15 sims and I am already sure they all will be amazing, the Fairelands open to the public 20-30 April and it is an offical SL RFL event. One of the biggest in Second Life.

Merchants can apply already and blogger application will open soon, for more information on that,  please check the offical Fantasy Faire website!

On a side note, there is this.

One of the veteran Fantasy Faire sim designers for years is Elicio Ember, known from his home Cerridwen Cauldron and his awesome sims for past Fantasy Faires.
This year he had to pull out from the Faire, for personal – tragic – reasons, his father got seriously ill and in the country he lives (Mexico) , treatment is possible but at a high cost.
Due to circumstances, all explained on this website Filling the Cauldron, Elicio cannot be a part of his beloved Faire as he is facing not only caring for his father but also a lot of medical costs.

 

The Fantasy Faire community and lovers of Cerridwen’s Cauldron have stepped up, and while Elicio will not be able to participate in this years Faire, the Second Life community can participate by helping him out.

 

 

 

RUNNING FROM SATURDAY APRIL 1ST THROUGH SUNDAY APRIL 9TH, Filling the Cauldron will be a region-wide event at Holly Kai Park  – by Inara Pey and Caitlin Pey (caitlyn015.resident) in the beautiful Blake sea, and will be featuring:

–   Live music and DJ performances at the park’s main events venue
–   An art display inspired by Elicio’s work
–   An auction
–   A special Design a Garden contest with a very special prize
–   A photo contest with special prizes
–   A market area, Cerridwen’s Corner – a mini-store of Elicio’s creations, allowing you to buy his items & visit his main store.

Filling the Cauldron. Check it out.

See you at the Fantasy Faire!
