I havent bothered to write a new journal since November and thats a really long time, so I figured I should just do it.  I have a ton of commissions and other projects on working on Im pretty busy.  

I will be vending at the PA Rennaissance Faire every weekend starting laborday weekend (thats 9 weeks in a row) and then I have FaerieCon right after that in Baltimore.I will probably be getting free ticket to give away for FaerieCon again this year if anyone is interested in going

Im selling most of my breyer horses in my ebay store.  There are over 100 of them so if you collect go check it out.  stores.ebay.com/Kate-Sjoberg/M…

I also have my first resin unicorns for sale. www.ebay.com/itm/small-artist-… I have no idea how to price resins so I pulled $30 as a price out of thin air.  We'll see how it goes.  its a stablemates size so its a small one.   Im working on a classic size sculpt to cast in resin right now, but that will probably be while before they are for sale.  

Im also working on a new batch of Valkyrie hair clips and some new fairy wing designs in organza.  My sister wore the prototype fairy for celtic fling a few weeks ago and they went over very well so they will be be forsale shortly.  
I sell and absolute ton of plymer clay unicorn horns (mostly to MLP cosplayers) www.ebay.com/itm/Horns-renaiss… Ive been getting a bunch of requests for a version for on a real horse so thats a top project right now too.  I have it sculpted, I just need to make the molds,cast it in foam latex and figure out how to safely strap it on a horse (Max and Candi are so excited...well Max is, Candi just doesnt care.  Max plans on using his as a weapon of mass stabbing.)

as far as sculpture goes I have some crazy ideas in mind for my next big project now that the Kirin in done.  I liked the way the Kirin's fox friends turned out so more fuzzy stuff is in store and probably more Kirins too he was a fun change.  Im planing a sea horse, an octopus mermaid, a centauress and giffin  as projects very soon.

It seems like its been forever since I logged into DA.  Thing have just been so crazy I havent had the time.   I've been doing lots of shows...The PA Renaissance Faire and then FaerieCon right after that, so thats 9 weeks a show of every weekend!  And then theres the crazy weather.  the Past few months in Pennsylvania we've had tornados, hurricanes, record braking flooding, an earthquake!!!!! and a freakish october snow storm!  Oh and just a lot of rain in general. its made a huge mess.  everything is muddy there are multiple trees down to clean up including a 200+ft sycamore tree that came within feet of crashing into my bedroom and the snow storm killed one of my tents at the renfaire.  fortunatly it was our stockroom tent and everything in there is packed up in bins so we only lost the tent itself.  I was pretty lucky with that a lot of other vendors lost a lot.  In the middle of all that my computer died and since it was going to cost more than it was worth to get it fixed I ended up getting a new one.  So now I have a computer that can run photoshop and If I can get the pictures out of my dead laptop maybe I can finish the new tutorials I though I would have done month and months ago!
So Im ready for a break
Not that Im going to get one.  Its christmas ornament time. the are for sale in ebay stores.ebay.com/Kate-Sjoberg/C… etsy www.etsy.com/shop/redwyvernstu…


Also I already have 3 commissions to get done before christmas (I should be finished with those in the next few weeks though)  so if you are thinking to getting something let me know soon.

I am starting to settle into my new workshop.  I am enjoying the space so much, but its taking forever to get everything moves in and reorganized.  But I LOVE haveing separate areas for everything.  I have a table just for sculpting one just for painting and one just for costuming and hairing! so much less mess.

Well its been forever since I wrote a new journal, and there is a lot that has happened.  We did 8 weeks at the PA Renaissance Faire and we had so much fun we will being doing it again next year!  Faeriecon was excellant this year.  we sold 36!!!!!!! Baby Dragon puppets.  So now I have no dragons in stock and will be busilly making them for awhile. But my next show isnt until Mythic Faire in March (its in baltimore) so I have a tiny bit of time to restock.  I will have free tickets to give out if anythone wants to go.  

Plus I moved, so to have my workshop in transit during one of my busiest times of the year has been super annoying, but my new work room is twice the size of the old one and has enough room I can start giving sculpting classes!  

I have commission on sale on ebay! plus the Christmas ornaments are up. so go have a look. stores.ebay.com/Kate-Sjoberg

Wow I haven't posted a new journal since May!  thats way to long, but Ive been so busy.  

Thanks for the DD by the way and it was on my Birthday too!  What a gift that was.  I was so excited.   

2009 was an incedible and crazy busy year.  We did 3 festivals 2 conventions and 4 weekends at the PA Renaissance faire.  and we are looking at doing even more this year.  

I just added a bunch of stuff to my etsy store.
www.etsy.com/shop/redwyvernstu…

wow this has been a busy month.  I did 2 Fairy festivals and a convention, so I now have a lot of catching up to do!  I will be doing 2 festivals in june Jubilee day which is wall to wall people all day crazyness on june 18th,  yes its a weekday festival weird right?  and then I am doing the celtic fling at the Pa Renaissance faire on june 26-28.  after that I am not sure.  We are for sure going to be at faerie con in November, but I will probably be making an appearance somewhere before then.  

I have a bunch of eBay listings this week and a ton of little fairy critters on etsy.  I also have a unicorn pendant, a white unicorn and 2 fairies up that are not in deviant art. and of course Mira my new mermaid is up on eBay.  Tanith will be up on ebay next week and so will some more custom baby dragon puppets.  They have glass eyes and have different colors than in the regular listing for them.  
anyway here is ebay stores.shop.ebay.com/Kate-Sjob… etsy  www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=…

oh and I only have 2 dragon fossils left.  Hopefully I will get more cast soon, but I have a huge to do list so if you want one get them now.  Also on my to do list is Shoulder dragons which are at the top,  well under finish commission (which I have a lot of).  I am also working on some resin unicorns.  I have them cast and sanded I just need to paint them.

Wow 2 journals in one month!  its shocking I know. I have a ton of commissions to finish and I put the WIP pics in my scraps.  I have lots of fun things to work on.  I have a little more than a month to get ready for the first festival so I need to start stock piling things.  

This week in ebay its unicorns galore!  these three are some of my favorite ones ever.  
I am very pleased with Madrigal. the dapples came out very well and her conformation is an improvement I think.  I made poor Candi trot a million lunge line circles last week to get a better understanding of a horses trotting hind end and I think it paid off.  The hindquarters seem to be hardest things to sculpt...noone ever gets the stifle joint right... ooooh and fetocks/pasterns!  that is not a difficult joint to draw/sculpt but it is hardly ever right.  ok this just turned into a rant, I'll stop
any way here are the eBay link for my 3 new Unicorns

I have also decided this week to have an obsession with large scale sculpture.  Its really not a good time to develope a new obsession since I am doing a ton of festivals this year.  But its like when I decided I could probably figure out how to make BJDs.  I don't really have time for it but I NEED to do it like i'm on drugs it will drive me nuts if I don't do it.  well we'll see what happens, but don't be surprised if a 4ft dragon suddenly appears in my gallery.

ok so I am going to try to update more journal weekly for now on.  I don't really expect that to happen, but I am going to try.  
So I am getting my act together for the spring festivals and I will hoprfully be doing a lot of them this year.  So far we are going to be at the Mayday Faery Festival in glenrock PA and the Maryland Faerie Festival,  the Celtic fling and the PA Ren Faire and Fairiecon which has moved to baltimore!  I am so happy they moved and I got really lucky by getting the last vendor spot.  Wow
I decided I need to start the season off with like 400 dragons, so that pretty much all I do right now...make dragons....
    I do have some big projects I am working on.  I am making a rather large dragon (for me)  he's about 10 inches tall.  I will put his WIP pics in my scraps if I remember.  I am also working of a new dragon fairy that will put all my previous ones to shame.  I am also working on some snow globes!!!  they are going to be awesome.  
  This week on eBay I have a cream colored unicorn stallion with an open mouth.  that means sculpting a tongue and teeth, which always takes forever, but it does look really cool.  He kind of reminds me of a carosel horse with his pose.  He turned out to be a real pain to create, because I tried to take a short cut...don't take short cuts.  You see super sculpey can be really soft if you don't check  the box before you buy it to make sure its stiff enough to work with, well I have several boxes that are annoyingly soft and I though I would use this to build up the bulk and then use the nice stiff clay for the outer details.  Sounds like a good idea right, well it had the effect of giving him a liquid core, which just complicated the heck out of things and made it take twice as long as it should.  oh, well lesson learned.  Any way you can see him here:  cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?…
I also put the blue appy unicorn on etsy today. you can see her here: www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?…

christmas is over and so is the ornament making!  (almost... I have a few late pony ornaments to finish up) but its mostly over...every year I have a huge debate with myself on whether or not to do them and I always end upmaking them anyway.  I am not sure why I continue to do it tho since all the those little ornaments drive me nuts!

but any I have lots of fun commisions to finish so that will keep me busy for the rest of the week and probably next week to.  One of them is a unicorn like the last unicorn in the animated movie so I am really excited about that since its completely out of my style

its jbout a new year so that means I have show planning and applying to do.  I am hoping to double the shows I go to this year so I am going to be busy, but they are so much fun!

I almost have my BJDs ready for casting so I am really excited about that.

I am making a %100 hand sculpted one of a kind fairy BJD riding a polar bear....its taking for ever but its going to be worth it so keep and eye out for them hoplly with in a week or so.

and WOW on my DD.  that kept me busy for about 2 hours reading all those comments and Favs!

Well my first two festival are done.  Next up is the western Pa fairy Festival outside of Pittsburgh.    We had a blast as always.  These festivals are just so much fun!  I still have a lot of updating to do in my gallery.  I don't have pictures up of half the peices I took the the festivals and they are some of my best.  
    In other news I am planning on giving my website a total make over to include a shopping cart.  I think I will wait until after the WPAfestival though.  I am going to have a lot of new products for the fairy convention (we just bought our second space).  My first round of silicone came today!  I have decided to make fairy ears to sell.  I will post picture of the results soon.

Yea my first journal entry!!  Well This is the busiest time of year but I decided to take some time and make a journal anyway.  Fairy Festival season is nearly here and I am no where near ready so this is starting to be panic time.  If any of my wonderful new fans live on the east coast you should stop by one of the Festivals and see me.
The biggest one is first and it is the Mayday Faerie Festivalat at spoutwood farm in glen rock PA (its almost in MD)  This is my second year there and I can't wait to go.  its the first weekend in may so its almost here!!!!
I am saving all my best peices for it.  I promise I will try to post some pictures of them before I go.  
Well I need to go get back to work.  There is so much left to do!!!!
