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:

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your rats. I can only imagine how difficult that must be on top of everything else you're working on. :( I hope that things mellow out for you, and that your rat will be alright. ;;

Thank you very much for your kind words <3 It's a rough time right now, but fortunately most of the things that are going on are good, so I'll be fine c: Just ready for a 100 year nap though ^^;
