All the January dragons are running late.  I should have 2 Guardians , 2 reivers and a sprite finished and listed early February.  The rest of February  I’ll be cutting out a custom dragon, finishing up 2 blue Royals, and a peacock Guardian.  Plus working on the moth and bumblebees- (now planning on march for hatching them), and finishing up 2 blue Royals.

Should be a nice batch of dragons for March.

Update…..Plans for February

Seems I hadn’t counted on catching the worst cold ever! It has taken 2 weeks, rest, and a round of antibiotics for me to finally be recovering.

Sadly all the January dragons are running late.  I should have 2 Guardians, 2 reivers and a sprite finished and listed early February.  The rest of February  I’ll be cutting out a custom dragon, finishing up 2 blue Royals, and a peacock Guardian.  Plus working on the moth and bumblebees- (now planning on May for hatching them), and finishing up 2 blue Royals.

 

 

Plodding away on the January dragons! Ordering fabrics and supplies for future dragons, 50 more feet of armature, and midnight blue, purple, and teal shell claws.

My plan of just sewing for a week seems to be working. Trying to hatch a dozen dragons monthly, as opposed to doing one or two at a time. If all goes as planned I will have a dozen dragons to list soon.

I am so looking forward to trying some new designs in February. I’m hatching Bumble Bee and Moth Sprite dragons, they will be a lot of fun.

I’ve ordered a Moth wing tutorial-( which will save me a lot of time) the Minky fabrics, yellow and black fur,yellow and black striped fabric, white and black velvets are all on their way.

I will need to head to the craft store and find the rest of the needed supplies.

I will open my Etsy shop on the 15th.

Thanks Brad, this is great- This is so…… my kind of dragon, I’m sure he is sitting on piles of fabric like myself.

My to Do list for 2015, Keeping busy!

2015 Dragontry plans, I’ll try to update the dragon colors when I get them cut out, hopefully monthly!
I am sure most of these plans will change, but it gives me a good idea of what I should be planning for. I will be updating this monthly with what I was actually able to do, it will help me plan a more realistic list next time. LOL.

I really want to focus on making Dragontry successful this year! Wish me Luck!
Between family health crises, and the passing of two dear family members,  last year 2014 was so very sad…

My wish for this year – 2015, is that we all have a year filled with happiness, health and Joy.
In order to be able to hatch more dragons this year,  I’ll only be accepting six custom orders, as of April I am all booked up.

This year I’ll be hatching some rare/ fun dragons that I’ve have been wanting to do for some time, Asian, Welsh, Sea, Leopard, Bumble bee, Moth, and even a few gryphons!
Here is my very tentative Dragontry to do schedule for 2015,
