Dreamy the Blue Dragon

I just wanted to touch on some topics because I have received all kinds of mail over the summer and there are some things I want to address. I am not a big business. I am a stay at home mother who does this on the side. I have a life outside of this. Family comes before anything else. I’m sorry if it takes me forever to respond if I do at all. Stuff happens. I will have more time once school starts but I have been super busy spending time with my Daughter and Husband so I haven’t been online as much as I used to. I am one person. No one else is helping me. I do everything. So please keep that in mind before you post things. I have feelings and I get hurt easily that is just a part of who I am so please try and be nice. I am human and make mistakes too. I just wanted to touch on these things. Some people have been very mean to me in their letters and it hurts. I’m not talking about problems with patterns (I am always happy to try and help with my patterns) I am talking about people’s voicing their opinion of my stuff. If you don’t like my creations please just move along. I also want to say Thank You to everyone who has commented and said encouraging things. This always makes me feel good and can sometimes make my whole day. Thank you again :D

Ok now on to the Dragon lol

This Dragon came to me in a dream like so many of my other creations lol I haven’t been crocheting lately because it has been sooooooooooo hot and I have been running around with my Daughter going here and there enjoying the summer. He just kind of sprung up on me and after a week of putting it off because I knew it was going to take a long time. I finally decided to make him so he would get out of my mind LOL. My Daughter and I named him Dreamy the Blue Dragon. While I was making him she kept running off with him. I kept telling her it wasn’t done yet but she couldn’t wait. He hasn’t left her arms since I finished. I had to pry him away to take pics. It makes me so happy when I can make something for her that she loves more than store bought toys. Anyways here are some pics. What do you think? If you can't see the whole picture right click on it and select view picture. I have the pattern available in My Etsy Store for $8.20. It is 12 pages long with lots of pictures :)

And I absolutely love making toys for kids, because seeing them getting excited about something that's one of a kind is just amazing to me. :) I'm sure your daughter loves all of the creations you make!!

You Rock!!!! Don't ever let anyone make you think you don't! And for the record being a mother, wife and making a house a home is very hard work. Your patterns are the tops and your creativity shines through them. I especially love how you give personality to all of the creatures you make. Keep it up cause those who appreciate your work would greatly miss it if you took it away.

He's cute and awesome! And you know what. I live by the motto that if they are saying something nasty. They are hatin'. And haters are just jealous because they didn't come up with the idea first!

Your work is awesome and I enjoy making all your creations mostly because I like your style.

AprilDraven said...

aww thanks :) You would not believe the stuff people have the guts to post. One person even insulted my husband. It is really hard to not get upset but I try.
