It’s been a crazy summer so i haven’t been doing a lot of crafting. Looking back on last summer I really had a lot of life changes and zero breaks from crafting. I’m taking some time now to finish a few projects that I started at the beginning of this summer. This is a dragon I’m making for one of my art teachers in high school, I really attribute him as one of the reasons I made it through highschool. Also, next year is my 10 yr grad anniversary so I felt it would be a good time to express my gratitude.
Hey everyone! After getting a friendly reminder that I owe the government quite a large sum of money after graduating college I’ve decided to open commissions. I’m only taking 3 slots for the present time, but will open up more once those are finished. I’m mostly focused on DRAMAtical Murder right now but it’s open to most everything else too!

My latest dragon! It was completed a while ago but my camera cord is broken, so I finally decided just to use my camera phone. I at least wanted to get it up here. I’m in the works of creating a summer dragon also, it’s about a third of the way done. One will be up for sale and the other will be going to a family friend. I’ll post it when it’s ready.
About 25+ hours in the making. The dragon sits about 1 feet tall and 2 feet long. He has a full wire frame, wired feet and hands, so he’s poseable. The tail has sand in it for extra weight and balance. I hand sewed 12 button covers to make the button joints, an extra plus because the wings and legs can move and be posed. The hair is made from ostrich feathers . I used puffy paint to add spikes to his ankles, hands and face. He’s top stitched to give extra definition to the feet, wings and ears.
My husband graduated from grad school this weekend - yay!! We’re celebrating a (temporary) break from school before he begins law school this fall. We held a Futurama themed grad party for him. My sister Scribblescrab and my friend Audrey made this cake for him, it’s a pretty good cake to last year’s Catbug Cake. I made the modeling chocolate and Slurms MacKenzie. Audrey made Fry and the rice crispy bases for everything My sister made the cake and the amazing Slurm Queen. Audrey and I put the labels onto Mountain Dew bottles. There were also Slurm jello shooters, but it’s hard to see them in the picture.
Sorry for lack of updates, folks. Life and a broken camera cord have slowed things down, ugh. My husband and I are planning to move to Portland, it’s a hard decision but a good one. In the meantime my friend and I finished our pieces for the annual Alzheimer’s Association palet auction. Each artist is given a paint pallet to decorate and it’s auctioned off for charity. I’m very happy with the results. Mine is the green one and my friend painted the fish.
Gearing up for a Spring Sale, more Hambos, Cactuars, Firewolf pups and a couple of dragons will be going up then I think Ill start doing quarterly sales, which Ill be on track since I had a Winter sale. :)
Well, like any artist, I hate to admit when something just plain isn’t working. I got some really pretty fabric for a new dragon back in Nov, and despite re doing the legs twice and the head and body, it just didn’t matter how much fray glue I used, the sucker kept ripping and unraveling. It ended up in the trash. I went back and bought new fabric and within two sittings was further on my new dragon than my previous. I guess it was a lesson well learned. I love how the new one is coming out, it’s all glittery :D
