Hey guys,

It's been a while since my last journal. I'm sorry I haven't been very active lately. My life is pretty hectic right now as I'm trying to graduate this year (which means writing a monster thesis D: ) and aside from that regularly attend conventions to sell my work. On top of that these past 4 months have been very bad for my rats. Two passed away at a respectable age, but unfortunately with complications, and the two remaining ones are both not doing very well. Of one, I'm not sure she'll make it, in spite of the medicine and vet visits :c It's been very emotionally taxing. Doing research and writing for my thesis, preparing for and attending conventions, doing a weekly internship at a local museum, and trying to keep something resembling a social life has me stretched quite thin D: I have made a lot of new plushies for conventions and boy, the list of plushies-to-be-uploaded is way longer than I would like xD One day they'll all be on here!

Of the current commissions, two are finished and have already arrived at their new homes, and the other three are well on their way (3 plushies are almost ready for stuffing, for those who ordered a second plush: those still need to be started). This means that I will have to delay the next commission opening for at least a month (so definitely not in April). I want to get the current ones done and shipped before accepting new ones to avoid a too long wait as convention prep takes up a lot of time as well. Thank you for your patience :heart:

Hi! :)
My name is Kristel, I'm a 24-year-old Archaeology student from the Netherlands with a passion for the visual arts! I love drawing and plush-making and am fond of history, animation and nature. I am especially interested in the (Italian) middle ages and museums! :aww:. Besides that I love creating art. I have a fondness of mustelids and rodents, and tend to be drawn towards the lesser-known small mammals. Some of my favourite shows and books are: Steven Universe, Avatar (The last Airbender and Legend of Korra), Fullmetal Alchemist (Brotherhood), Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, and many Disney and Studio Ghibli movies. I really love Pokemon as well. Feel free to talk to me, I love meeting people with similar interests :D

I recently received an adorable little rattie keychain from you as a gift from my girlfriend and it brought me here, I just figured I'd let you know while I'm here that I absolutely love it!
Keep up the awesome work, I look forward to seeing what you create
