Sensational Shop Saturday - Mystik Dragons

31 Days of Sensational Shops went so well that Sensational Shop Saturday was created to continue to feature awesome handmade shops!

Today's Sensational Shop is Mystik Dragons - run by Amanda Payne!

Tell us about you - the creator!

I am a craftaholic mommy of one, currently unemployed and trying to get myself through college to finish a Paralegal Degree. Almost 34, I'll try any craft once just to see if I like it. I sew, make candles, jewelry, and several other things. So much so that my husband refers to my Craft Room as The Tinder Box, his reasoning being that if the house were to catch fire my craft room would go the quickest!

Describe your shop and what you sell

Currently I'm stocking mostly jewelry with some screen printed glasses on the side. Occasionally (when I have all the pieces to finish them) I'll have plush lamps. These being lamps that I've made that use plush toys.

What is your favorite item to make? Why?

This is a toss up. I enjoy making the lamps because of the hunt to find the perfect toy to use, not just any teddy bear will work! But on the flip side I also enjoy making jewelry because it helps to calm me down when I'm stressed out.

How and when did you start your business?

My best friend and I started the business in 2001 solely making candles. Life however got in the way and it was placed on the back burner until around 2012 when I brought it back with a larger variety of items.

Where can buyers find you?

Thank you so much for stopping by to meet Amanda Payne of Mystik Dragons! I'll see you next week for another Sensational Shop Saturday!
