Today’s Creature Feature:
Whip The Wyvern
There are many versions of the wyvern in mythology today, and these aggressive legendary creatures are also known as Dragonets. Whip is a little different than the average wyvern Joe, though still has some of the classic features. Traditional wyverns tend to have a dragons head, tail, and wings with two legs and a reptilian body. Whip instead has a scorpion tail, bat wings, talon claws, and a narrow beak-like reptilian head.
Although he has an aggressive nature, this wyvern will protect his friends and family at any cost – which is why this wyvern represents courage, might, and strength. And just like his traditional wyvern counterparts, he absolutely LOVES ANYTHING SHINEY! Whether gold, a rock, or a fork – Whip adores shiny things! Keep him near these things (or give him one), and he will protect you forever! Whip can be kept close to you to give strength and courage, or hung up in your home to provide protection against enemies.
You can meet Whip in person at the Midwest Conjurefest Sept. 10th, or on Labor Day (Sept. 4th) in the Old Market! (You can also find Whip here!)
We hope to see you there! (And whip requests you bring something shiny!)
Although manticore’s are known to be “man-eaters” in Persian mythology, this trio prefers the decadent flavor of beef! These feisty creatures have the heads and body of a lion, the wings of a bat, and the tails of a scorpion. To the far left is Solar, his long mane a deep golden brown in representation of masculinity, pride, and dominance. In the middle is Eclipse, her slender form representing femininity, elegance, and gracefulness. Then on the far right is Luna, her deep black fur and silver tones representing the moon, space, and night. Together this trio is a force to be reckoned with, and with them on your side – no person dare to harm you else feel their power!
I attended last year with my beaded creations, and am going to again this year! I’m pretty excited because I love the environment there, everyone is so nice, AND i’m in the process of creating a new beaded pattern special for this event!!! (HINT: It involves eyeballs O.O ) It’s going to be held at the Conjure Shop in Omaha Nebraska 🙂
Stay tuned for more updates, and information about some of the beaded creations I will be featuring there!
Have a GREAT weekend everyone! Thanks for reading!
I’m plotting my next plot, in between working, meetings, and research. It’s been a busy couple weeks, well, I ought to say MORE busy than usual. I’m hoping soon things will not be AS hectic, I haven’t danced in a while, and haven’t hung out with friends for quite some time…
I’m contemplating my next short read to write, maybe Dear Diary Part 2 or a health related book. If anyone has any suggestions, or has a request, I’m open to them!
Well – I’m going to head off to bed. Tis earlier than normal for me, however I’m pretty tired tonight x.x
This post is a day late due to some technical difficulties!
As an update, I submitted my short story for the Kindle UK contest and am now awaiting for it to be reviewed. It’s called: Dear Diary, Today I Woke Up A Werewolf. I’m pretty excited, it’s my first fantasy diary format I’ve done. I’m hopeful it will do well! I’ll let you know once it’s up on Amazon 🙂
On another note, Today I visited the Intercultural Senior Center in Omaha and volunteered to teach an art class June 8th at 12:00 p.m. =^.^= It will be my first time teaching at a senior center, so I’m a little nervous yet excited! I will be teaching them how to make tissue paper flowers (carnations to be exact).
To add to it, I’ve attended several meetings this past week (including the weekend!) and worked at the Veterinary Clinic as well – Busy! Busy! Oh, and also happy belated Mother’s Day to Mom’s (both the Fuzzy animal kind and little people kind!)
Have a great evening! Thanks for reading!
Tick’s are bad near the water right now, I’m still finding them from my shoes on my Sunday hike! (Little rascals!)
I’ve been going to Women’s Exotic Workout (W.E.W.) for over 3 years now, and have enjoyed every class. Adena, the owner, is such a kind, funny, and generous woman – empowering and healing all those she meets. With the holidays and bad weather, the studio has fallen behind on rent and utilities. Adena has given up her own personal pay and run up personal debt to keep W.E.W. open. Her love of teaching and helping women is strong, and as a way to give back to her I’m donating 50% of all sales to help pay off back rent and utilities – all until they are fully paid off. She has empowered me, been an ear to listen, and encouraged me all these years, and I want to be able to give something back to her.
Please check out the gofundme page for more information. If you’re able to donate any amount, it would be greatly appreciated – even if that donation is sharing the link to others.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. ❤
For the rest of the month of January, Charcoal self portraits will be on special through my website. Instead of the usual $150 for a self portrait, I’m doing them for only $50. These are all hand made using charcoal and paper, and I even keep the tabs on them to show they are authentic and done by hand. That’s $100 off the original price. $40 of each purchase will be donated towards W.E.W. Adena is such a wonderful person, and she has helped so many women, rescue animals, and myself.
