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 nothing for a few weeks. But now I feel almost no drive to sculpt. I think maybe it is just that I feel I need to follow a Valentine theme. Maybe if I draw some ideas of what I really want to work on it will help. I've always done stuff for Valentine's Day, but maybe I shouldn't care about that. Seems I do best when I make what my heart wants instead of following holiday themes. 

Regardless, I will be having a "Valenitine's Sale" at the end of February. I've made some valentine scrap dragons, but I think in order to get myself excited to sculpt, I may deviate from the theme and make what I'm inspired to. Which is of course, not really a problem, as most people don't actually want valentine colored things, they want awesome things for valentines day! Right?? So I'll just go wherever my heart takes me and hopefully you lovely folks like it! Perhaps some dice dragons, and couples in color schemes I like. I mean that is still Valentine's-y but I get to choose the colors! 

Anyway, I'm rambling now. I've just had a hard time focusing on work. I think I miss my family... but I talked to my mom today and that helped a little. It's really hard being so far away from them sometimes. They mean the world to me, and not being able to be with them is so hard to deal with sometimes. Just gets me down a little, especially with a child. I just feel like Ember is missing out on bonding with her cousins and that  I'm losing the bond I have with my family. It's just really hard being so far away from them :(

But working helps me not dwell on that stuff too much. I just need to find "that thing" that I really want to work on and go for it. I'm thinking I might revisit the elementals, in their chibi versions. That sounds pretty fun at the moment. We'll see where I go! 

I also wanted to thank everyone that has bought one of my coloring books! I just love the pics people have sent me of their kiddos working on their books. I put so much time and effort and worry into them, I'm just glad everyone is enjoying them so much. Maybe I'll make another later this year when I've built up enough drawings.

Anyway, take care all, and I hope the beginning of this new year has been treating you well! :love:


P.S. On a completely random side note, I just finished Breakout Kings and loved it and was SO annoyed they canceled the show after two seasons! Whyyy? Boo! Lame! D:

Etsy Sale Dec. 13th
Here is a preview of what will be available in my etsy sale tomorrow. Mostly scrap dragons (so called because I use leftover scraps of clay from bigger projects to make these smaller dudes) with a couple ratties thrown in, and one little grey cat dragon!

Sale starts at 4 PM Pacific, Saturday, Dec. 13th in my etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/DragonsAndBe…
This is the last sale before Christmas. I can guarantee these by Christmas in the states only. 

Which is your favorite in this bunch?  I have to go with the candy cane hoarder, he's the best :XD:

Three of these are up on ebay right now:

I still get asked constantly for dragon wedding cake toppers... if I were to make some, what wedding colors are most popular right now? Of course the bride is always white but what are the favorite accent colors these days?

What do you use to make your dragons? Me, my sisters and my dad are big D&D players and he would probably appreciate one.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you 
have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re
nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this 
message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, 
and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 
deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will
happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
