*Please note - I am currently on a hiatus due to life circumstances and falling behind on plushie orders. As soon as everything gets straightened out and finished up, I will be back in business! Expect to hear from me beginning January 2017!*

January 2017 Status Update

Hello all!

Now that I am finished spamming all my new uploads <<;;; sorry about that.  I have been very busy behind the scenes, despite being so aloof online.

I'm still prioritizing my old commissions and working on finishing those up, so I won't be taking any new orders until these are complete.


The good news is, I'm almost there. I've got 6 more plushies to go, and still one more that needs some revisions. These next 6 are either very large or very complex, though, so it's hard to estimate a timeframe for completion. You can always check my status by visiting my Trello, which is kept up to date: trello.com/b/2YKfqdBh/commissi…

Additionally I'm a little hesitant to open custom orders again because it's very stressful for me to try to match the commissioner's expectations exactly. Revisions are kind of heart breaking, and adhering strictly to someone else's idea is a bit restrictive on my creativity. I think what I might do is offer custom orders for patterns already designed, so the commissioner kind of has an idea of what they're going to get. For example, a sleepy baby style of their character.  And for start-from-scratch commissions where I need to design a pattern, there will be heavier fees to take into account the extra work and revisions that go with those.

But I'd really like to make some premades and fill up my Etsy. I may take a small hiatus to do this, I'm not sure yet.


For now, I'll keep working on my old orders. Updated loose schedule as follows!

1/25 - 2/10 :  AleXusher's snow leopard

2/13 - 2/28 : Journeyful's Justin's dragons

March = Inventory and Taxes *puke*

I remember seeing (or hallucinating) that you had future plans to make a Kickstarter for those jumping spider plushies. Is that still a thing? :)

Oh it wasn't a hallucination! It's still in the works. I need to make some prize samples and get the costs summed up. Really not too much left to be done, I'm hoping to get that underway this year :)
