Time to call it quits... For a while x.x The point of break is just around the bend, for this ol' Lady...
It's been one thing after another here. My grandmother who was diagnosed with cancer has begun her treatments. She's about 2 weeks in, and starting to feel it... But her spirit is good, which is a bright note we're all thankful for <3
Additionally... My other grandmother (mom's mom~) just went to the hospital today with pains and found out some fairly dire news (Leukemia is active, and her spleen is in danger of rupture D: )
-Trying to stay in good spirits, but not always successful-
Stress is slowly eating me alive, and plushie commission projects aren't progressing like I'd like them to (so many distractions ;^; )
Until I can get back into the swing of things, or find a way to manage all the extracurricular stuff that's going on, commissions will be closed.
**The final 3 Chibi Plushie projects that are paid for will be finished all the same
Most likely, I'm gonna take a few days to myself as the week comes to a close, since my sister and I have our birthdays this week ^^ But, after that, they'll be my sole focus... outside of family stuff.
There seems to be no telling what'll happen next, or how things will work out... I miss being here and talking to everyone. Many thanks to everyone who's been so nice, and so patient... It means more to me than I can say
At last, at last!!
It's that time again
Plushie Commissions are Open
*Large (11-13 inches tall) Start at $55+
*Mini (9-10 inches tall) Start at $45+
*Chibi (4 inches tall) $35-40, depending on detail/shipping
Drop me a note
with the specs to the character you'd like to have. Here are some helpful details to include with your inquiry:
-Plushie Type (Large or Mini or Chibi)
-As many links to reference pictures
of your character as possible (*NOTE* Chibi's in particular work great, for this.)
-Any particular costume/outfit details you'd like to see/have
-What sort of payment method you prefer (I use Paypal primarily, but I do money orders through the USPS too )
I'll get back to you with a price quote and my payment info, and we'll go from there!!
Once payment's clear, I'll put your name on my Commission Listing Widget, on my main page. The starring system is updated daily, showing how far along I am on your particular plushie. Typically, once I get to a plushie, it takes around a week for the project to be finished and in the mail.
Hope to hear about any ideas you have!!
All those on my Waiting List will retain their places!! If you don't hear from me right away, don't worry~ I haven't forgotten you~~ I'll be noting everyone within the next 24 hours or so:
~Now for the Stuff~
(In case anyone's interested : D) It does have an impact on how my workflow will go, by and by, so... I decided to share a quick overview.
This last round really took a lot out of me, and took longer to wrap up than usual. There have been a lot of distractions here at home, and some family troubles at hand.
My grandmother (my dad's mom) had a test and a scan done back in January, and the results raised some concerns. After a few more tests, which we've been taking her to for the past few weeks, we learned shortly ago that it's lung cancer... There's still much more to learn about it, as she'll be staging and getting treatments started over the course of the rest of the month.**So, as a heads up, it's likely that this round won't be at my normal pace either**
My sister and I will be doing all we can to help my parents (taking her to appointments when they can't~) So, I'm not sure if the level of distraction will be the same as February, or more... I honestly don't know ^^ But, I'm gonna still be working hard (since I feel my best while I'm plushing <3)
