Pocket Dragons

     Do you know about Pocket Dragons?   I remember when I first heard about them.  I was in my pre- or early teens and, as we sat around the campfire on a family camping trip, I commented that the fire looked like dragons when the tops of the flames were blown horizontal by the evening breeze.  My dad said he didn't know about campfire dragons but he did know about Pocket Dragons.

     Pocket Dragons are very, very small and never seen by humans.  The only way you even know they exist is by finding their bedding or pillows.  If you have ever reached your hand into one of your pockets and found a bit of lint, perhaps shaped gently into a tiny pillow, then you know you have a Pocket Dragon living with you and you should treat it oh, so very kindly because they are loyal and good friends, even tho' you can't see them.

     All of that being true, I believe this may be the first ever picture of a Pocket Dragon!


     Colored with watercolor pencils and ProMarkers, cut with a die from Spellbinders, framed with another die from that same set and still a third die used for the filagree in the background.  Ribbon from my stash and burlap ribbon used for the bow.

I do, I do, I do, have a pocket dragon living with me, however I didn't know about them, but now I do, I won't throw their pillow or bedding out any more. Thank you for the photo of one, it's wonderful and so tiny. Oh yes! Love how you have shown it off!
