New year dragonI will be making dragon plans for next year, working on finishing up any started dragons, updating the website, doing a fabric inventory, ordering any supplies needed, working on finishing the taxes early this year, working on a new renaissance coat for Ivy and organizing my sewing area.  Enjoy your dragons!

I braved the post office twice this week, mailed out all the Christmas dragons- fingers crossed they will reach their new homes in time for the Holidays.  Now I can get out and finish my own shopping….

A big Thank-you to all my patrons and dragon owners, your encouragement and support help to keep me hatching dragons.  I am truly blessed to be an artist.

Happy Dragon Holidays

These Nippers will be heading to California soon.

These were for a special order, it was crunch time but I  finished them in time for Holiday shipping.

I love the leopard one “Minka” she is so soft to the touch.  I do have 5 more of this litter cut out to finish later.

The purple and orange tie dye “Poppy” is very colorful and I love the orange sherbet color eyes.

“Jester” was an interesting nipper to make, Giving him a purple/ green “Party-colored” body with red accents was so fun. I even split the top head piece so he would match.  I think one like this in a black and white pattern “Harlequin” would be striking.  Another one for my to do list.

Tail Tufts are fun!

Sprites have been specially hatched to be more magical, they love glitter, and all that glitters!  Most have faerie wings, a few take after a more distant dragon ancestor and have dragon wings.  They are attracted to bright colors and like to nest near meadows of wildflowers and gardens.  Where they can be observed gathering nectar for their evening meals, although a few have mistaken faeries for flowers at times….never fear they do not bite…much.

I brought these 4 Pink Sprites back from Dragon-con, but was not happy with the way the glitter fabric and feather manes worked together (think Velcro).          I gave them a “make-over” and switched to faux fur, and for fun added tail tufts.  Which does make it easier for them to signal each other from a distance.

I will at some point finish up the ones I have already cut out- more purple and pinks as I recall.  And after the tweaking I’ve done, I will definitely be making many more of these.  I’d love to see some in dark colors, maybe Moth wings?

I really enjoy when a new design comes together, Feather-Flare was quite challenging, but he turned out amazing.  I will be making a few more Peacock feathered dragons in 2015.

 

 

 

Holidays are exhausting!

Today I feel like either the goose in the movie Babe ….”Christmas means carnage”, or Babe when he heard “That’ll do pig, that’ll do”.

I have a few pink  Sprites almost finished that I will list next week if possible.

I will have all the dragons “ordered” in time for Christmas finished and shipped out by the 15th, and will then set my Etsy shop to Vacation.  Although I will still check on emails.

I have been so overwhelmed this year, and so busy trying to catch up, but I have hatched all the  dragons for this year (any other  dragons I’ve said I would try to do, will have to wait until next year.)

I have yet to decorate our tree, and with a Grandson’s 3rd birthday party to prepare for, I will be a very busy sorceress indeed.

Enjoy your Holidays, Family and Friends
