  1. I’d love this prize! I think the dragon in my life might be my 5-month old son. He has no problem telling me how he is feeling about things and he is bold in everything he does. Of course… we still have time to see if he is really a dragon. But, him being in my life sure has made me more bold, confident and dragon-like. And, it sure makes me need a night out!

  2. Lindsay Kahler says:

    The dragon in my life is my Father. He is always strong and confident, and always making sure that his family members are as well! He is incredibly genuine and generous, even though he is a man of few words!

  3. My best friend Debra is the “dragon” in my life- loving and supportive, but always bold and honest in a loving way! She always speaks the truth in love, and is one of the best people I know!

  4. I adore the cupcake liner fortune cookies. I made them for my New Year’s Eve party, my guests were just thrilled to discover the fun fortunes I had conjured up for them.

  5. I enjoy being the dragon in my life…life is easier that way and a lot more fun.

  6. Alexandra C. : ) says:

    This is sooo much fun! LOVE your page!!!
    I actually do the red envelopes to my family and close friends! I hope I win!!! : )

  7. Mary Beth says:

    I’ve known my friend Marianne for 16 years now (in realizing that it has been that long, I’m shocked!). We met as suitemates in college, and she has always embodied ease in being honest and genuine with her loved ones in the kindest of ways. There is no other friend I will turn to when I need someone to put me in check (she will tell me if I’m over-reacting, being lazy, etc.)! She will give you her honest opinion, and it is never hurtful. Over the years, she has grown into a confident mother and educator, and her example now reaches others. In these ways, she is definitely dragon-like!

  8. Carol-Lynn says:

    Definately my husband. His favorite restaurant is PF Changs!

  9. Janet Daugherty says:

    I love this and want to make the fortune cookies! I want to win the red envelope as well!

    1. Janet Daugherty says:

      My son Michael has the dragon traits! He is bold and ready to embrace whatever comes at him and take charge of it!

  10. I am having a lil girl soon so I would LOVE another way to help celebrate this new Dragon year!!

  11. Great ideas. I am having my own party this weekend. My first time putting it on!
    The paper fortune cookie is very clever tip- need to try this one.
    I am afraid I don’t have PF Chang’s in my neck of the woods but I join my sister and family in Florida every year to go there. It is there favorite go to restaurant.

  12. We are having a Chinese New Year party on Monday with another homeschool family. We have started decorating and can’t wait to enjoy all the fun! (I see your Chinese Yo Yos, I got them also!)

  13. It would definitely be my husband that embodies the dragon traits.


  14. Lauren Yeary says:

    Love the party ideas!! Love PF Changs & Love the 3 dragons in my life!! My mom is a “Strong” dragon because she is a 5 year breast cancer survivor and she faced chemo and everything she had to go through with the strength of a dragon!! My husband is a “Brave” dragon because he served in the military for over 20 years and served a tour in Iraq. My father is just an overall dragon because he is the hardest working person I know!!Thanks!!

  15. The strong person in my life is my mother. She is strong…she is honest…she is genuine. If there was an angel on earth, it would be her. Everyone that knows hers, loves her. She is the best! ALL children, grandchildren, neighbors and friends love her. My dad says that there is no one else comparable to her. :)

  16. Tammy Daves says:

    I would say that my friend Cynthia is my Dragon – great ideas on the cupcake liners – we do a big Chinese meal twice a year at our church I am going to incorporate this for sure… Thanks so much and I ordered your book – cant wait!

  17. THERESA FRANKS says:
