Mother’s day is this coming Sunday here in the U.S.
I don’t know about other Mom’s but I run on caffeine more often than not.
Looking for gift ideas? Here are a few I found this weekend. (Click on images to go to product purchase page)
The first one is for those that have a friendly sibling rivalry. 😉
It can be found on Etsy at RT Vinyl Designs
The next one is a wonderful coffee care package – Spa box
This one can be found at Serenity Bath Shop on Etsy
Or how about this beautiful Coffee Cup Necklace in sterling silver?

I am a fairly new owner of a Duo Instant Pot . When I searched for Dragon ideas this week I came across an Etsy site named Steam Ventures. They sell Dragon head vent covers. If you own a pressure cooker, you know that when the vent releases steam naturally goes up. In my case it is steaming up the bottom of my upper kitchen cabinets.
These vent covers redirect the steam and look cool too. When you go to the webpage link above or by clicking on one of the photos below, scroll through the reviews to see a customer review that has a photo of the dragon vent in action.
From the Etsy Store product page:
Dragon head steam vent for Instant Pot with 90 degree angle. Fits all Duo, Duo Plus and Smart models. DOES NOT FIT Ultra or Lux models, nor can we confirm that it fits any other brand of pressure cooker at this time. Adds a bit of flair to your Instant Pot, while preventing the steam from venting directly towards your ceiling. Made from high temp food safe plastic. Available in multiple color option and 4 different directions: front (towards the front control panel) left, right, and rear.
Wait times have increased due to high volume of sales. We will be shipping them as fast as we can make them. 4-5 weeks is our current estimate, please note that all of our items are finished by hand and no two items will be identical. Some items may have small imperfections in them – we like to call them birthmarks. We also do our best to smooth out any rough edges. So please just be understanding if you see such imperfections, as our products are NOT mass-produced through injection molding.
Life has a way of pushing my blogging aside lately. I will try to get back on track (and on time) before long. Until then, I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I am not crafty myself, but I love seeing what other people create. I found an Etsy store named DIY Fluffies – Stuffed Animal Sewing & Crochet Patterns – Toy Plushie. They are located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Owner Mariska Vos-Bolman, designs and sells patterns and kits. Yoki The Fat Dragon is just one of many plushie designs she has created.
Below are images of dragons made by customers that have purchased the Yoki The fat Dragon pattern. 🙂

I have many friends who create amazing things with yarn. Some knit, some crochet, many do both. I am the cheering section that Ohhhs and Ahhhs over their creations.
These same friends have shared some fun dragon inspired patterns they have found online. You may find them here, here and, here
This week my friend Andrea shared this dragon inspired yarn.
It is called Venti Dragon Mocha. I found it online at Madelinetosh.com
The first one is
DK Twist | Venti Dragon Mocha
The other is
Tosh Merino Light | Venti Dragon Mocha
These yarns are 100% Merino wool. The Tosh Merino Light is dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in South Africa. The DK Twist is dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in Peru. Both are dyed to order.
These are beautiful and I love the dragon name. The colors remind me of a woodland dragon.
This site has many beautiful yarns. If any one makes something with this yarn please share a photo.
I found these beautiful Dragon Suncatchers on Etsy in the Mad March Moon shop. They are beautiful! I have an east window that will be perfect for them to spread their colorful shadows.
This is the suncatcher that I ordered:
Be sure to look around their shop for more beautiful dragon items.
