MLP: Minky Color Guide:
Which minky color works best for ______ (insert MLP character here)?
This journal is an attempt to answer that question. There are more than 50 shades of minky out there, and as a plushie maker, I realize that it can be difficult to know which color will work best for the particular pony you're working on. This is made even more frustrating by the fact that many of the images of the minky do not show the true color!
I recently ordered a ton of swatches from fabric.com, and I'm continuing to collect swatches from various websites, in an attempt to get most of the minky colors. Because I have the actual fabric with me, I can compare it to the characters' colors to see which fits best, to ensure that you can make a plushie that is as show-accurate as possib

Hello guys! I just got back from NC Comicon. I have to say it was a great learning experience to have a vendor table for the first time. I sold lots of plush keychains, soot sprites and mini ponies, as well as a ton of posters! Most were sold out by the end. A few of my bigger items sold as well. Unfortunately this con wasn't as big as I was accustomed to, so less people brought large amounts of spending money. That's okay, though, I still walked away with a profit, a good time and I had the opportunity to meet some of you guys! Thanks to all of you who stopped by and introduced yourself.
Anyway, I have some plush for sale. A few guidelines:
If you are interested in a plush, please say so in the comments or send me a note. Only inquire if you are serious, please.
I accept paypal.

Pastel Unicorns: Skinny Pretty Non-UnicornsThis is from Heavenly Nostrils which is a really adorable webomic about a rowdy little girl and her kind of prissy, self-centered unicorn friend. It has a strong Calvin & Hobbes vibe to it, which is a high compliment. MLP (well, "pastel unicorns") comes up a couple of times in the strip - the artist is a pony fan!Pastel Unicorns: Skinny Pretty Non-Unicorns4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Art Contest!Good day everyone!Art Contest!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
A handful of weddings have already been announced throughout the fandom and both my future wife and me wish all these people the very best! We'll be newlyweds soon enough ourselves.
But different from this, we would like to run an art contest in celebration of our first child being born, to share joy and excitement during the last months before the birth!
There will be prizes, but they will not be very valuable, I admit.
Here's the rules:
- Design a filly!
- It's supposed to represent a theoretical Ponysona for our daughter.
- Gear your design to our Ponysonas (roughly, so a connection can be distinguished, keep yourselves some freedom).
- No Cutie Mark and name required (but feel free to add, if you feel like it, not necessarily on the Pony).
- Simple image will suffice (no matter scan, photo, digital art, vector or anything else, but make sure we can make out details to appreciate your work fully!).
- Uploading and releasing the image to a blog, artpage, etc

Fluttershy And Nightmare Moon Plush Hair Guide1- Choose your fabric. For Fluttershy, I would use a pink satin, or fleece if you don't trust yourself with expensive material. For Nightmare Moon, I would get some of that special occasion satin from Jo Ann or Hancock that has the little sparkles glued to the fabric, or you could look for fleece with a nebula/space pattern on it (you might have to look online.) Something else that would be interesting is using a translucent satin; it'd look cool over the white batting and edged with blue blanket stitches (use a black or very dark navy blue fabric.)Fluttershy And Nightmare Moon Plush Hair Guide3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
2- Create a pattern by drawing the hair on a sheet of card stock. For Fluttershy, draw her bangs, long mane, and tail separately; the bangs and long mane will be on opposite sides of her face.
3- Cut out the pattern pieces and trace onto the fabric. For satin, use washable tailor's chalk. For fleece, use washable markers. You may or may not want to use markers with translucent satin; they may harm nice fabric, but chalk is really hard
OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! SO HAPPY :'DI was at my dad's house and my mom wanted me home early. And I thought it was because we have a bunch of shows that we missed while she was at her trip to cali. And then I thought; if it wasn't that...then what is the reason? And then I thought "Maybe I'm gonna get my hair cut....no...definitely not. Maybe my mom found a pug finally.......OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! SO HAPPY :'D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Nah. That's just wishful thinking."
So I come home to my moms house after supper and she's recording me on film.
I noticed and I'm like "Uhh you're recording me.........WAIT.."
I look down and I see a cute little face staring at me.
SO YEAH. I GOT A LITTLE TINY PUG IN MY FAMILY NOW FOR LIFEEEE >:'D PRETTY DANG AWESOME.
He's about 4 months old and he is (obviously) a boy. His name is Mathew. That was already going to be his name because my mom loves that name for some reason...

Starting School MondayOf next week. Oouf, I'm pretty anxious about this.Starting School Monday4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Since I'm entering to a whole new school and stuff. o^o
Not to explain that the school is HUGE! I feel like a little(-er) girl when I'm inside. :<
Hopefully I won't get any meanie dicks judging me by the way I look. I keep having that trouble every school year. :C
As of today, I am officially a Senior High School Student(12th grade).
I REALLY don't feel like a Senior. >w<
I wish I could find a choker and long gloves though. :U I miss my old choker and my old gloves. :c
Well I guess that's all for me during the meantime. I'm cold.. :'C *shiver shiver*

Cons for 2014I had so much fun at Bronycon I can't wait until next year. I talked to Everfree Northwest about doing a panel next year. It will be with Spacevoyager and Whiteheather. We are going to go dress as the CMCs. We are ever going to attempt the CMC theme song. That should be good for a laugh.Cons for 20144 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have also talked to Bronycon about doing the same panel for them. I am also working on a little smaller pattern, because Spacevoyager and I want to have a vender table at Bronycon.
This way I can offer a few plushies at a lower price. Anyway I would like to thank the fans that have been sending me links and pictures of my plushies from Bronycon.

Pattern Re-Release and MoreI've had several people over the last few months asking about my pony pattern and why it was no longer available in my Etsy shop. The ponies I've been making for commissions have been done using an updated pattern from what I was selling on Etsy, and it felt wrong to me to sell an out of date (or inferior) pattern. I just couldn't continue to sell it knowing I had developed something better, but I never had my newer pattern ready for sale.Pattern Re-Release and More6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I've been steadily working on tracing, scanning, drawing, and everything else for a re-release of my sewing pattern, now with massive increases in clarity, prettiness, and informative pictures! I've been tracing all sorts of images for the pattern, including new construction how-to pictures, wire outlines of the finished ponies, and the pattern pieces themselves (instead of using just Sharpie-traced images). It's taking a MASSIVE amount of time to trace every pattern piece twice, but the final result looks much cleaner a

Remember, if you like any of the items and can't pay upfront you can always message me about a payment plan, or a different offer for the item then the one that's posted in the online store. I'm willing to negotiate is most reasonable offers.

My First SculptureBack in 2006, I decide to work with Sculpey for the first time. I made a little happy pea in a blanket (it was pretty lame). It was very simple and it was the only thing I could make at the time. I didn't have much experience at the time because I never took an art class before. Even later on, in middle school and high school, I chose to take other classes over art class. Everything I learned about crafts came from looking at tutorials on deviantART and getting a few tips from my artistic friends.My First Sculpture3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Later in 2012, I made my first custom pony. There's a long story behind it and I'll share it later if anyone would like to hear about it.

I continued to make customized pony figures and I learned from the experience. I learned how to paint properly, make a smooth finish, mix paint in order to achieve the perfect color, and more. I'm not perfect an
