Q

How long will shipping take?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 08/19/2015
A

My answer depends on which of my online stores you'd be buying from, where you are located in the world, and whether I am currently traveling! If you live outside of the US, shipping can take several weeks, especially if your order gets stuck in customs.

For my Etsy and Storenvy stores, I can only get to the post office once a week (which allows me to spend more time at home making handmade products to sell). Because of that, I say to typically expect your package in 1-2 weeks. I'll send you an email once I do ship your order, usually within a week of your purchase. This might take longer if I am traveling, so check my shop announcement under my etsy banner to see if I've left a note about my travel there!

If you're buying from my shop on DFTBA.com, they have a staff running their warehouse so they're able to ship orders out much more often than I am - every weekday afternoon. They also offer a 2-day shipping upgrade there if you need it sooner!

Aw, I'm so happy to hear that you like my songs! I'm glad that you like them. Thanks for the kind words! To answer your question, no, I don't have autographs from anyone in the Harry Potter cast.

What do you think your life would be like if you never knew about Harry Potter? I LOVE YOU SO MUCH

A

It probably wouldn't be very interesting, that's for sure.

Q

Are you gonna make it back to Conjuration again?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 08/06/2015
A

Unfortunately, I can't attend Conjuration this year. I'll be unable to travel very much this fall/winter so I'm sticking to events closer to RI where I live.

You are such a creative inspiration for me, I was just wondering what is your strategy for writing a new song, for instance, do you come up with a topic to write about and then comprise lyrics and chords or do you just write what comes to mind no matter if it fits the theme, like on your Prince' Tale album? Also... Side inquiry... Are your eps ever going to be on iTunes?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 07/27/2015

I actually made a video about this topic for my YouTube channel a while back! You might enjoy it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbRi3bS0...

As far as iTunes goes, I was pretty sure that all of my music is on iTunes at either https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/laure... or https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/the-m... - except for the Bathroom Acoustics EP by my band The Moaning Myrtles which was exclusive to the Wizard Rock EP of the Month Club but is available in limited quantity in physical form at http://laurenfairweather.storenvy.com/pr...

Which EP were you looking for that you didn't find on iTunes? Was it that one or is another one missing for some reason?

Dear Lauren ,

I L-O-V-E your Harry Potter DIY crafts, Geeky about Harry Potter, your music and etc. But I was think how to make own Harry Potter wand ? That would be so super Geeky!!!!!
Thanks,
Hannah

You're in luck! That's actually already been done by loads of crafty channels on youtube. I'm not totally sure if I can offer anything new and interesting to that craft, so I'm not sure if I'll tackle it at some point, but here's a search I did that came up with all kinds of different ways to make wands: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_q...

Hi Lauren, huge fan! Saw you a LeakyCon last year. I am an aspiring wrocker. So far I've only done covers, any tips for writing an original song for my music taste? this is one of my parodies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bjG2arbB7Y Thanks for the help and advice! --Lily

Your voice is so lovely! What a great parody and performance.

I get asked this a lot, so I made a video for my youtube channel a while back talking about my songwriting process and some tips that help me. The biggest thing for me (and the toughest, honestly) is just letting myself write, even if it's bad, because you can't get better if you keep stopping every time you think something you're working on isn't good enough. You can always rewrite lyrics you don't like or adjust a melody that isn't quite there. And even if you end up tossing the song entirely, at least you've learned something and maybe your next try will be better.

Have you seen Cabin in the Woods? What did you think of it? Apparently a lot of people weren't too crazy about it but I loved it so I was wondering what you thought as a fan of Joss Whedon


Lauren Fairweather responded on 05/18/2015
A

It's one of my favorite movies of all time! I love horror movies so I really enjoyed the way it turned the tropes on its head while still keeping it pretty terrifying. The big ending scenes were a blast. Also, Fran Kranz is wonderful.

Q

Do you sell at local craft shows? If you do, what tips do you have for product presentation and greeting people?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 04/20/2015

I occasionally do craft fairs, but I also end up treating the merch table at my concerts very much like a craft show. I'm not sure how much I can really help you in this little blurb, so I would like to do a video on this sometime! But here are some things off the top of my head:

-Keep the focus on your products... I've had people try to buy pieces of my displays instead of products and they were disappointed when I said no.
-Use height and various levels
-Extend your branding onto the table (choose a similar color scheme and theme, etc)
-Clear signage, easy to read, label things and prices for them. If you take credit cards, have a sign that says so!
-Leave space for people to see you behind the table! Makes it easier to interact if you don't have to climb around a big setup to help someone.
-I usually say hello and smile, then be quiet so people can look in peace. Some people like to chat, some don't, so leave space for them to do whichever makes them comfortable.
