The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

^^ My face when I finished working tonight. ^^


Reason for it is I started the weekend off looking at all of the commissions I have to do (updating the commission binder) and nearly passed out, there's 14 between now and Halloween between commissions and samples I'd like to have finished. Samples are friend requests I do for a small discount to try new things I don't want to risk on a commission. So after categorizing them into when they need to be done I decided to group up the easier ones into batches and run through those. Started that sometime Saturday and with the exception of yesterday (took a personal day to deal with some things) I managed to get 5 of the 6 over %75 finished. I'm hoping tomorrow is equally as productive so I can finish up this hoodie batch and get a couple other things finished.

Been a little on the slow side as far as keeping up with messages, though not sure if its a matter of being slow or just not used to the influx of messages. Went from getting 1-2 a day to 5-10 and as much as I love all you guys messaging me it is a little draining at times. So normally I end up answering everything then posting a journal or image. Tonight since I have a raging headache (not sure why) I'm going to have to put it off and just head to sleep.

As for more future stuff, the cons I mentioned in my last 2 deviations are listed below.

I'll understand totally if I can't pick up my hoodie from you at NYCC/NYAF, since it's a mere two weeks away, but I look forward to it just the same :D

Haha, I'm sorry! I didn't mean for you to get hurt at all. :c But no, I don't mind picking it up at con at all. Did you want the final payment when I pick it up?

Ohhhh no, if you don't mind getting it at con this thing is getting done.

Currently in a battle of wills with my sewing machine to get the wings in yours. Going to take a small break since I leaned slightly too close to my machine and got clipped by the arm on it swinging up and down. Was more surprised by it than anything but I think I've been staring at it too long.

Yeah...I understand that strain...I'm still adjusting to increase influx of the inbox and the more I try to cut back the more it wants to grow...it's getting up to almost 200 per day X_X

Yea, this is totally my own fault that I allowed things to build up as much as they did. Hoping to plow through the majority of the hoodies since I figured out the easiest/fastest way to put them together without sacrificing quality. Just a matter of adjusting the order I use while assembling.
