I am a professional plush toy designer and creator. I design my own patterns and am more than happy to work with you! I put emphasis on quality and detail, and take great efforts to create something I am proud of. I love a good challenge and truly enjoy taking on all kinds of commissions.

Happy Thanksgiving and Thank You All

Wed Nov 25, 2015, 10:53 AM
Top Bird

Well, another year is drawing to a close already, and Thanksgiving is just a day away.

 I just want to take a moment to thank each and every single one of you who have followed my art over the years; who have favorited any of my pieces; who have left any comments supporting me; and, most especially, to those of you who have commissioned me. I may not always publicly express myself, but I feel extremely honored when you guys feel that I am worthy enough to spend your hard earned money on my artwork. This is why I put every last ounce of my heart and soul into every piece - it is a thank you, for continuing to support me in doing what I love.

And I know it takes me such a long time to finish pieces. I am so sorry for the waiting, and I am so thankful for all of your patience. Rest assured, I am always working hard behind the scenes to make each of your projects a masterpiece in its own.

This year was a little tough on me, emotionally. I won't go into too much detail, and I don't talk about it much, but I suffer from extreme bouts of anxiety and depression in the form of panic attacks and suicidal tendencies. Both run in my family, genetically. I am generally in a state of melancholy, but I try to be a cheerful online presence, because nobody likes constant poopy emotional journals. But I want to be honest with you guys, because you're like my big online family, and I want you to understand why I am not always very present or delayed in responding to messages.

But know that doing this, making art, is my calling in life and it is what I will always do. And because you all continue to support me in this endeavor, I can't thank you enough :) Love you guys!
