Featured Seller: breathofthedragon

Please welcome breathofthedragon as our featured seller for today! I've bumped around in her shop, and all I can say for lack of a better word... WOW. Here, see what I mean?

I just love the earthy feel I get from looking through all the different designs and items. What's even better than the earthy feel is the feeling I get when I read about how breathofdragon came to be what it is. Read on...

My name is Connie, but I also go by Sunfire (a high school nickname that stuck). I'm 28 yo, and a veteran of the US Navy, having served 5 years working with computers. I currently live in Wenatchee, WA, in the middle of downtown with my boyfriend from high school, and I work part-time at a local grocery store throwing freight in the evenings.

I started wood burning in 2006, when I was hooked on the smell and simplicity of it. I did it on and (mostly) off until late 2008, when being around my mom pursuing her craft as a business encouraged me to do the same. I started selling my wood burnings on Etsy, but have proudly moved to Zibbet as of January 2011.

My favorite things to burn are Celtic, tribal and Kanji (Japanese-writing) designs, but I love to do custom pieces as well. Probably half of all the items I've sold were commissioned, and I love hearing the story behind the piece and design I'm making.

I also proudly support the Turn Peace Around movement, which encourages people to flip their peace signs for a positive spin on the idea of peace (instead of focusing on anti-war).

I want to thank you Connie for serving in the Navy for this country of ours. THANK YOU! I wish I could tell you face to face how much I appreciate what you've done, but hope this will work for now.
