Hey everyone!

It's been a while, I'm really sorry to those in the commission queue that had to wait this long to get their items finished, I appreciate your patience.
I don't tend to like going into a massive amount of details about my life but I do think you guys deserve some kind of explanation and I feel like the storm has passed enough for me to talk about some of these things.

It's been a rough year for me with life throwing me for a loop more times that I would had liked to and sadly that did affect my health and creativity in massive negative ways.

My car broke down on me multiple times and a lot of funds was pored into it to get it in working order again.

My health was swaying back and forth, migraines that kept me in bed for most of the day and days where I was unable to move my legs became more frequent as I tried to keep up with art school.

Art in general seemed to run dry as drawings after drawing got thrown away before I even managed to get the sketch done.

I had many days where my right side of the body would just stop working, my right arm or leg (or sometimes both) would loose their sensation and I loose control over them.
One day in particular was when we where going to do these large coal drawings of a model. My back had been killing me for days and as I started to sketch I kept dropping the coal, the more I tried the more my arm gave up on me. In the end leaving me unable to move it at all. Since this coal drawing was important to my future studies I had to take the blow, shove my right hand into the hoodie pocket and draw with my wrong hand. (I'm right handed when drawing)
I did end up with a not too bad drawing and a pretty impressed art teacher but the stress and effort I had to put in just to finish the drawing was draining and left me unable to go to school the next day. (luckily it was Friday I missed so not too many days was lost) 

When It came to plushies I was struggling real bad with some designs on a plush and only once my own mother (who is a seamstress) stepped in to help was I able to overcome the biggest hurdle I had at that moment.

I am however glad to report that I'm doing much better now, my stress levels are down, my health seems to have gone stable again (as stable as it can be) and I'm on a good way with the commission queue. 
I'm planned to showcase a bunch of plushies at the end of this month!
Hopefully more if I'm able to!

Anyway, thanks again to my commissioners for their patience, you guys are amazing :rose:
Thanks for your time.

:bulletblue: About Us

Forge Your Fantasy is the name of my small and humble hobby business.

My name is Christina and I'm the one behind Forge-your-fantasy, A girl that live for pretty much everything gaming and geeky! On my spare time I play video games, roleplay, cosplay, watch anime, cartoons and great films.
And ofc I create!
I've been drawing, painting, crafting and sewing since I can remember.
I create sculptures, plushies and other craft based on my interests and to express myself where words fail.

Regina is the mascot for Forge Your Fantasy, she's a Faedrac- a draconic like species that spends her days helping with various tasks, welcoming the new arrivals and she handles the journals at the front page.

I love what I do and my biggest dream is that I can eventually make a living running Forge Your Fantasy as an independant business.
Because of health problems it has been difficult for me to have a full-time job and I hope to be able to support myself on my crafts and sculptures.

Forge Your Fantasy is still a growing thing and there is lots of room for improvement and changes.

Only the future can tell how it will go for me and the years I have spent here building this page has been great!
