Project Overload!

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.

I love your goblins, and find myself being curious about some things. I understand that you might not want to give details on how to make them, but I would love to know a few things just because it is interesting.

How long does it take for you to make one of these goblins?

How did you come up with the idea for them?

Hi Carola!

Thanks for the note...I am not sure if I respond here, but I do have an FAQ on this blog that may answer a lot of questions...

Thanks everyone else for the awesome compliments!
