I started this blog to show the world my Dragon creations……I can’t very well reach people writing in a private journal…so hence the blog.
I have already put some of what should go here on my About page….. there are links to my etsy shop, facebook pages, and my pinterest page.
By way of introduction – name is Tracy, but my chosen name, my craft name, is Oriana. I live in the Albuquerque, NM area in a meeser pride, with my ever patient husband. Meesers are Siamese cats. I have had at least one in the house since I was 10 years old and cannot imagine living without one. As to the Meeser part, if you have ever been owned by one, you will understand the abbreviation.
If you notice the banner on my page, I have a picture of the moon-flowers that grow just outside my back door. These were a welcome gift from Mother Nature, when we moved into this house. It’s an Adobe, a real one, and the only house I have lived in that I have not wanted to gut and change. I tried for years in TN to grow them, here they just volunteer!
I make dragon eyes, dragon necklaces, dragon earrings & other dragony things that are to come……but it doesn’t stop there. I see dragons, in the clouds, don’t laugh, I can show you…..The energy I work with as a witch is dragon based. And that will be another subject for postings. I just have to get off my duff and write. Problem is I’m a doer, when it comes to crafting, but I tend to be tentative about writing about what I do. To me it seems a bit like bragging….. I do other things than dragons, I also knit, crochet, and I’m constantly learning new techniques to improve my beading and ability to create the dragons I enjoy so much. When I’m creating a dragon item, I get the basic form down and then at some point, the item starts telling what it wants to look like…and I bead, until the dragon says stop. Sometimes it takes 12 hours of work, sometimes it takes 16-20+ hours and sometimes it sits unfinished for a while waiting for the dragon to tell me what it wants to look like.
It occurs to me that maybe this blog is something I should take to Deviant Art and maybe I will post my ramblings to both WordPress and Deviant art…..
I want to connect with people who also love dragons…whether real or imaginary….I enjoy dragons in fiction and film as well as seeing them riding the winds…. If you want to know more about how I perceive them here’s the link
Now I’m going to jump off here, we are planning a trip to the Mountains this morning and while my husband is fishing, I may just catch a picture or two of the dragons I see….
