Dragonair Plush by CeltysShadow Dragonair Plush by CeltysShadow
Spur of the moment craft~

Last Thursday my grandfather passed away... I have been really down and my sewing machine has just been sitting on my desk, because I have had no enthusiasm since to create anything. However my roommate, and very close friend said I had to get out of the funk I was in, so without any planning I just started to sew a Dragonair... a 5 foot, 4 in dragonair....

It was therapy sewing, and much needed. It feels nice to be able to create again though I am still very grieved about my Grandfather...

:3 I'd also love to take commissions on this big girl! She's as tall as I am and made completely of Blue ultra cuddle and white velour!

It's really hard losing someone you love, but being able to create again feels so great because your doing something positive! I'm sorry for your loss as well, but just keep sewing and reaching out to people :)

I can accept direct payment through PayPal, or I could list it on etsy. That's my usual methods at least.
Also because my Dragonair a bit expensive (being as big as she is) i could do a payment plan if she needed. And you can tell her Dragonair comes in regular or shiny now :)

Well next week I can make the shiny, and if she wants that one she can have it. If not I can use the shiny for my artist alley stock, and work on a normal one~

Do you think working on a project for yourself when you are depressed helps with depression?
Reply
:iconceltysshadow:
CeltysShadow Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
I really do, it gets your mind off of whatever is depressing you, and it gets you creating again which is really valuable when your feeling down.

OMGoodnesssssssss!! That is beautiful!!! I know someone besides myself who would go crazy for one of these too!

I'm sorry to hear about your Grandfather. :( It took me quite a while to bounce back from the loss of my Grandpa a few years ago. Just remember to hold onto the good things. Eventually, they will be a source of strength instead of pain. -hugs-

:3 Aw Thanks :heart:
I'd love to make more if you were seriously interested >_< It was super fun to make her and I'd love to do a group shot lol (thinking about doing a shiny this weekend!)

And thank you for your condolences, they are greatly appreciated. Today is actually his viewing, and I haven't been able to see my family since he passed since I've been stuck at college, so I'm pretty sure its going to be a hard day. And being stuck at school has done nothing to get me over it :(

It'll be a hard week, cause his viewing is today and the funeral tomorrow... but I'll probably sew again this weekend to get my mind off of him.
