And now some things I want to talk about. Sorry it's a bit long
So most of you know I've been really into my elemental dragons lately. They are much more intricate and time consuming than my usual work. It feels really good to push myself in a different direction and try to figure out new things. I have learned a TON while working on these guys! I've been trying new techniques with armatures, texturing, and skinner blends. Now, as I've been finishing them, I have been putting them up for auction which I feel may be giving the wrong impression for my continued sales. Some people have taken issue with me calling them One-of-a-Kinds stati

Zombie Kittens they run for $120 per doll. These dolls are 10" in length
The doll is fully poseable and will have glow in the dark eyes and a silicon brain. You choose how you want your brain matter to look. I know I make bright colorful looking brain stuff but I can make them with realistic finishes, same with the cat heads. Let me know if you'd want normal kitten paws or the zombie kitten paws (or a mix of the two)
Pretty much any color is available for the kitten dolls. You can even pick what color ribbon you'd like for your doll.
Phallus Pal $70 Floppy style doll.
because of the nature of the Phallus Pal, I will not knowingly sell one of these to anybody under the age of 18. Likewise, you best be sure you're comfortable with having an adult themed art doll in your home. I do not appreciate buyers remorse ^_^'

I am an artist by trade and I can not accept refunds for seemingly invalid reasons. When I sell anything I do my absolute best to disclose all relevant information regarding the item. If ever you are unsure about anything that I am selling you need to ask. Because once that item is out the door, its yours.
I had someone come to me claiming they had a "bone phobia" and was trying to use that as a reason to return something. The item in question had no bones. It was simply made in a home that happens to have real bones (like canine teeth and skulls for references). They did not ask these important questions ahead of time until they got their item in the mail. Once again, the item contained no bones whats so ever. And I can understand that there

We'll have almost every sort of cast homemade horror available, from tea monsters & weedoos at the low end of the price scale to a full sized barbary drake at the other end and all points in between. We're still working away on some things, but gars, goyles, sneks, voodoos and whelps are all set to go.

We've dragged ourselves back from Comicon...We're back from the first con of the season, and it was a great start!We've dragged ourselves back from Comicon...9 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the best moments was seeing a toddler go nuts for one of the best Batman cosplays we've ever seen (seriously, this guys was 7 feet tall, and his cape was amazing!), reaching as far out of his stroller as he could and shouting "Baman! Baman!" at the top of his lungs.
This really was the con of the children for us, we've never had so many customers under ten. Our first sale went to a little girl who couldn't have been more than four, who fell in love with one of our squiggles. Her uncle talked her down to a Tea-Monster, and she was just thrilled, coming back to the table throughout the con with the little guy wrapped tightly around her wrist. We had another one in the 4/5 age group who demanded we pinkie-swear that we would make her a fire whelp if the one we had sold before she could buy it.
Thank-you to everyone who came by the table! It's so much fun to chat with other artists, and people who understand both

I feel more collected now that I had a day to finally absorb the news, its still always a disbelief when you hear those words that your loved one is gone, in fact, as much of a cliche as it sounds it really just feels like a nasty nightmare that you wish so hard to wake up from because you've had that nightmare before and it hurts just the same. I thank all of you for your thoughtful comments and just being in your thoughts in general. I hope this doesn't have a long lasting negative effect, I really just want to move on because I am already filled with anxiety about my Grandmother who is now alone.

Devious Journal EntryI've been kind of an art failure for the past year. I've completed only two dolls since I made Indigo last February, and the other dolls I've started I've been disappointed in. I feel like my sculpting has slipped, which is unsurprising judging by how little it's been used.Devious Journal Entry10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Last summer, I worked literally every day except for two stolen Saturdays I used to go to the Renaissance Festival, so I had no time. Then, I went away to school. I just didn't have any time.
WELL. Life has gotten considerably flipped over, and pretty well everything has changed. I dropped out of school, first of all. I was going in to engineering for all the wrong reasons. I'm now going to follow my heart and become a social worker to help women and children (and men if they need it) get out of dangerous and abusive situations, empowering them and breaking the cycles. Right now, I'm living back at home, working and paying off my blessedly fairly small student loan debt. I'm also dating a friend I knew in high schoo
Halloween Voodoo Sale!I know we're a bit away yet, but being as how halloween is our absolute favorite holiday both Bones 'n I wanted to do something for it (other than cover absolutely every surface with decorations - yes we have that many). I'm even wearing one of my four thousand pairs of halloween socks as we speak... although to be honest I don't STOP wearing halloween socks once the holiday is over; there are very few mornings that can't be improved by putting a pair of tap dancing sparkle skeletons on your feet.Halloween Voodoo Sale!3 months ago in Personal More Like This

Secret Doll Santa Match UpsOkay guys! Let me just say the feedback was AMAZING! I was able to create 12 pairs, and I took both location and skill level/style into consideration. If there is a major issue with a match up just let me know, I will do what I can to help. I ended up with an even number of entries so i'm sitting out until the end in case someone doesn't get their part. Thank you for all the advice for matching, but I did end up pairing people off, I feel that with the high stakes of money and time involved in these people are going to be more honest and committed if their partner is creating their gift.

UpdateJust a journal to let everyone know I am still around lolUpdate5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I found over this year that the foot injury really has slowed me down even though I can get around ok. Having constant pain (even if it isn't really strong all the time) really wears on you over time. I haven't been releasing dolls as often as I have in previous years due to trying to keep things less stressful. I have lost a lot of self confidence in my abilities to do things as well as I need to and I am working hard to rebuild my self confidence so I can move forward again more up to the speed I would like to be at.
I do have a few dolls available at my official store at www.TheMushroomPeddler.com though.
Also, I haven't been using my Etsy shop much in an effort to avoid the extra fees there so if you are looking for my dolls the official store is more likely to have a selection of options.
Thanks to everyone for all of your well wishes and words of encouragement. It has really meant a lot to me.
