Oh it's been a long while since I posted on my blog. I have been on "project overload" for many many weeks now. I may have mentioned that I took on way too many Christmas orders this year which resulted in me working even on Christmas day! I managed to get all but one Christmas order to my customers on time. The last little goblin I shipped I finished on December 18th. I had thought I could send him express but he did not make it. I was thrilled though that the customer was surprised by his size and that he was way more colorful then the crappy picture I sent her had displayed. Ya! So, I'll post pictures of all the creatures I have finished too date.
Above are pictures of: Pop Rock Goblin, Fire-spark Goblin, Mini Starry Night Goblin who ended up so so mini, and Black Cherry Dragon.
I'm still working on a pair of Dragons that I took as a order back in November. I thought it would be easy, but then when I started I said to myself, oh right Dragons!!!! Dragons are more detailed and harder then goblins because of all their toes and claws..and now I am making two for one order!!! Silly, Silly me.
We actually went away this year at Christmas for almost a month. I thought having my in-laws around would help me to get more work done, but Bailey my little one wanted me more then ever which didn't allow for much felting. I even felted in the car after taken a heavy dose of motion-sickness remedy. It actually worked and it was pretty comfortable and the lighting was perfect!
I actually did something silly and took 4 more orders on one day over the holidays. WHAT WAS I THINKING? I have never been good at saying no. George almost killed me. He really wants me to work on the 4' dragon we started and with custom orders I can't work on anything else. Ooopps!
I am currently working on Three Valentines Orders and f more after that to be completed in March and April.
