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.

Plush Commissions are CLOSED :aww:
Please send a note to claim a spot they will now be filled up on a first come-first served base, provided I can accept the commission :D
It's all the same as usual: 5 slots, 2 plushies per person max. Instead of first come, first serve, you'll have an hour to claim a spot and after that I will either accept them (if it's 5 or less) or choose the projects that appeal to me most (if there's more than 5 people). When the hour is over the remaining slots (if any) will be filled on first come, first serve basis. This should be less stressful for everyone

Dutch Comic Con, winter edition was amazing! I had an absolute blast and sold 15 plushies, a personal record :heart: And of course also many other things. Thanks to all who stopped by! My table for the March edition has already been booked ^^
The leftover plushies, soft charms and patches have just been added to my Etsy shop :D https://www.etsy.com/shop/AvaniiPlush :la: There's a lot of variety there, please have a look :la: Especially if you like raccoons and raccoondogs, or Steven Universe, Voltron, Pokemon...
On 18 and 19 November I will be attending Dutch Comic Con as a vendor! :la: Come say hi at Avanii's table at AT-15 :la: There will be many handmade plushies, soft charms, embroidered patches, stickers, and painted notebooks! The most common topics are (fantasy) animals, Pokemon, Steven Universe, and Voltron Legendary Defender this time! For the first time I will have plushies with embroidered faces :la: I will also be accepting sketch and ink commissions :heart: It's so exciting! The March edition was a great success, so here's hoping that the winter edition goes as well. This time I can also accept card payments, instead of cash only, which
I bought one! :la: It's a Brother Innov-is 750E.
It's a dream come true, I'm so happy! I'm now figuring out how to work with minky, how to make patterns for patches and plushies myself, but it feels like I'm learning fast (and really I only got it Tuesday evening)! If you have an embroidery machine, please share any tips or tricks if you want :heart: I really hope I'll have some embroidered stuff available at Dutch Comic Con this November, but we'll see how it goes :D Oh man I'm so excited! You can follow my progress and failures on my Instagram and Tumblr c: That's also where I post daily Sketchember and Inktober art! This DA account is in
