I'm back! Time for a sale!

I'm back! Time for a sale!

Hey guys! Oh man it has been a looooong time since I wrote a journal here. I just find it so much easier to use Facebook and Instagram (links below), as I don't spend a lot of time on the computer. DA isn't exactly easy to use on a phone... Also I moved in December, to a whole different state! I'm back in Utah where my whole family lives and I'm so much happier. Had some really rough times in California being so far away from everyone I cared about. So it's nice to be home, and in a freaking house! Our house here is cheaper than the dinky little two bed apartment in California. It's so nice to have all this space. Ember loves having all this

Back to work and some ebay stuff!

Hey everyone. Jeez I can't believe its been three months since I last wrote anything here. As many of you know I tend to use mainly facebook now because its super convenient and easy, but even there I haven't had much going on lately. I was having a really hard time for a while being motivated to do much of anything. Went through a phase where I just felt really down and burnt out. But I've worked through it and finally the desire to make my little dragons is coming back, and my worries and troubles in life don't feel so heavy. It's good to be creating again. :love: On that note I did just have a sale, (which unfortunately I totally forgot t

Hey guys! The angel dragon sale went really well yesterday, and now the last two are up on ebay for those interested. Sorry I couldn't get more made for the sale. It's been a busy couple of months Black and turquoise: http://www.ebay.com/itm/121607673378 Red Fire: http://www.ebay.com/itm/121607676568 Unfortunately my oven is being crazy and messing up sculptures so I won't be sculpting much until it is fixed. The thing is brand new too! It either nukes everything or loses heat completely, which is exceptionally frustrating. Hopefully they can repair it quickly. I made a very pretty little rainbow angel dragon and the oven murdered him. He

If you haven't seen these dragons yet, yes they are inspired by "the dress". After a long and pointless debate over that stupid thing with my husband (we each saw the opposite colors), we decided it didn't really matter and was in fact both colors. It really just depended on perception. And so he jokingly suggested I make a dragon couple in those colors. The colors actually go really nicely, and I ended up putting way more time into these than I ever really planned to. At least SOMEthing good came out of all that dress nonsense, right? Anyway, the set is now up on ebay for anyone interested. They would make a fantastic cake topper, for all o

Sorry to go missing for a while. I spent so much time on those little angel dragons then promptly got sick... and not just me, Ember too! So we've had a lovely sick week together. Man I always hated getting sick before but sick with a kid? A billion times harder. BUT we're better now! :D Anyway, I've listed the two little angel dragons on ebay for those interested. Angel Dragon: http://www.ebay.com/itm/121575906112 Standing Angel Dragon: http://www.ebay.com/itm/121575907372 I was hoping to have a sale at the end of February but it looks like that will be pushed back a couple weeks. I feel like I've gotten nothing done this month! D: ----

Sale tomorrow Jan. 31st

I'm finally back guys! I took everyone's advice and took some time off from sculpting, and now I'm ready to dive back in! I think I just got so burnt out from the holiday months, I needed a good long break to recover. Now the ideas are buzzing and I'm loving my clay again. I have managed to get a bit of work done in time for a small Valentine Sale. There isn't nearly as much as I usually have for my sales, but I wanted to at least offer SOMEthing before Valentines Day for those hoping to give a dragon as a gift. As usual, most of these will be available in my etsy shop, and a few will go up on ebay. The couples and the fluffy red dragon are

Been a while...

Been a while...

Hey guys, sorry to disappear for so long. Been having a really hard time getting back to work! I'm usually really excited to make Valentine stuff, but this year I'm just really not feeling the theme I guess. I think I worked so hard for the last few months it kind of burned me out a bit.  I mean Scultpober was so stupid of me to do, knowing full well I couldn't simplify my sculpts as much as they needed to be for such a grueling schedule. Then I immediately launched into getting my coloring book ready in time for Christmas orders, plus one last sculpture sale in time for Christmas. Such an intense, draining schedule... it felt so nice to do n

Up pretty early right now because I couldn't sleep. I had a huge headache yesterday so I took an excedrin for it just a wee bit too late in the day and it's got me all wired! GAH! Who needs sleep anyway... So, remember that whole coloring book project that has consumed all my time for the last month or so? It's finally done and available for purchase! It looks so awesome guys. I got a couple copies to play with and I've been loving coloring in them. So has Ember. Well, really she just scribbles then runs off with the crayons...  but anyway. They have been tested extensively :XD: The paper is great for crayons, and even better with colored p
