2019 – another year ended!

I’ve enjoyed the Holidays, Went to Texas for Thanksgiving! Enjoyed the Texas Renaissance Fair! It is so big we barely got to see a small part of it. Just means we will need to go back at a later date.

Christmas was rushed but wonderful, Let’s just say Amazon delivered an abundance of packages.

New Years I’ll be packing away the last of the decorations, and getting the tree tucked away until next year.

Working on dragons this weekend

Hemlock has been adopted”,  and will be heading off to Australia tomorrow.  

Camp Grandma is coming to end, can’t believe school is starting up so soon,  I  haven’t  hatched a lot of dragons, but it has been a fun summer.  Which is important too.  On a good note I have 7 dragons ready to assemble and list next week.

Maker’s Faire

I love these quiet mornings, first cup of coffee, Luna by my side, husband off to work, grandsons still asleep!  Over the weekend I didn’t get much done on dragon hatching, Saturday I worked on my gardens, and Sunday we went to Maker’s Faire at the Henry Ford complex.  We saw so many amazing creations, and met some creative inventors. The grandsons got to make model rockets – and shoot them off!  There were robots everywhere,  the bubble blowing dragon, and the land- shark were my favorites….

Updates

We’ve had a few power outages due to storms, nothing too long.  I’m working on the next batch of dragon, I hope to get them all painted next week and listed in August.  I’m finishing- Perchers- purple, burgundy, and white, Pixies- green (spoken for), blue, coral, and a Reiver- rainbow.

I’m redoing Hemlock for his new potential owner in AU, giving him faux fur, and silk cords.  Trying to find the right faux fur was challenging, I ordered 2 pieces of  greens, one has arrived and has been rejected,  the other is on it’s way from Europe.  I really hope it is perfect.

I kept looking at the Rainbow Reiver and really wasn’t happy with the glitter eyes I had chosen…I just had to redo them to be satisfied with it…. took a day to switch out to the teal eyes,  but so worth it!

Husband’s birthday get together was great, bought him a new hat to wear to the Ann Arbor Art Fair.  The Art fair was too hot for me… I don’t do well when the temps are in the high 90’s.  What a heat wave we had!

Not storm related but we had a huge tree fall across the road, and almost take out our mail box. Which as you can see is a very lucky mail box.  The air was filled with so much wood dust- looked like it was snowing .

Update

Trying to package dragons for shipping with the Grandson’s is  challenging.  Orion and Leo are heading home this evening, I will wait until afterwards and get the dragons ready and plan and mail them out tomorrow.

I’ve been going through the dragons eggs and making sure all the parts are still  together, have found a few are missing pieces. mostly button covers, which I can easily replace.

Happy Father’s Day

Weather permitting we will be setting off (launching) rockets with the grandsons. Should be fun!

“Camp Grandma” is doing well, I’m watching the “boys” 3 days and two nights weekly, for the summer.

I finished 4 dragons up last week – 3 pixies and one Guardian size.  The green Pixie sold right away! I might need to go back to similar batches, since so many wanted a green dragon.

I also got an inquiry about making a Nipper custom order,… Nippers are retired.  I’ll have to think about this one.

Update: sent her a convo saying I would make her a custom nipper, for the same price as a Pixie, but have not heard back yet.  Ball is in her court now.  My thought is she wanted a custom Nipper for less?

I currently have 3 Guardians, 1 Ryder, and 2 Reivers to finish up in June. The Reivers are a long over due wedding gift.

On the good news! I found my missing dragon eggs! I took them out for inventory, set them into a different tub and stored them under a rarely used table.

I need to start sewing the next dragons to finish now! I’m thinking of moon, moth and bumble dragons, with some green and purple dragons added.

Just got a message….

Today I read a message that touched me deeply, I am so honored to have a dragon make such a difference in someone’s life.

“Scry arrived safely and is wonderful! She shimmers and is so delicate… a beautiful creation! Thank you, Sherry! Your work is beyond extraordinary! A year ago, I had just moved into a new home and then lost my job. But I never lost faith and worked hard to make it through. As a single mother, it wasn’t easy. But no more! And Scry is my talisman. My symbol of survival and reward for hard work. Again, thank you!   Chris”

Fall 2017

Fall is here, this summer has gone by so quickly.

Sadly,Life has kept me focused away from dragontry and dragon making. I will not have any of my planned dragons/creations hatched for Halloween-  I will put them on the to do List for next year.

I do have  a few dragons started and will finish, and list them as I can.

Here is what has been going on…

August I had the Flu, so much for the Flu shot I got.

September Druid’s last ultrasound showed one of his lymph nodes has enlarged, and while he is doing great, and his Surgeon/Oncologist said there was no sign  the cancer is back, we have upped his chemo(Paladia) back to 3 times a week.      I have been spoiling Druid as much as possible.

I had been thinking of getting a puppy, just on a whim, but  in September, everything fell into place to get a puppy from a friend/ cohort of my daughter.  We packed up Druid and met half way, turns out just over the Arkansas border is halfway between us and Houston.   Druid and new puppy- Luna hit it off, and snuggled together on the way back, and have become best buds.

I had forgotten how much energy a puppy has, and like a toddler- everything goes into her mouth.  Thank goodness my grand-daughter Ivy came up from Texas to visit and share all the puppy love.  We had a great visit!
