A new leaf (life update and more)

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 9, 2016, 4:16 PM
It has been a long while since I've been active over here...  hello everyone.

To my follower and friends who still watch me, thank you <3 

I'm not sure how wordy this will get, but I wanted to explain why I've been inactive all this time. (concerning plush commissions and such, look for the tldr near the bottom)
I don't usually like talking about my personal life (as I don't like to worry friends). I'm happy to write though that things are starting to turn for the better finally <3 For a couple years now I've had issues with a car, stress, my job, and my sewing/art. I don't want to complain since the first 3 cars I had were given to me and I didn't have to make payments (they were very old and used, my uncle and dad would get me through my uncle's company, and the last one was my mom's car that got passed down through my sisters and then to me), but all of them had some issue or other and never lasted more than a year. So you can imagine the stress of driving and wondering if my car was going to break down at any moment. All the mean while I saved up money towards a new car I could eventually get. With my mom's help I did! It's only a 2 year old car but it's nearly new <3 and I couldn't be happier (also, very happy cause nothing was more stressful than searching for a new car TuT I still thank my mom so much for going with me).
Along with that I've been drawing more. I bring a sketch book to work and doodle in my free time. I've been making new friends and hanging out with friends more <3 (but also losing friends when their work visa or college program is over ;A; at least now I have even more a reason to keep at learning Japanese and one day visit Japan!). I got full time at Disney and have gotten promotions, and come this next month I'll be training for the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival <3 I've never worked it but I'm excited!! I'll be coordinating and training all the other cast members coming in for the festival, so it'll sure be quite the experience.
Though I'm thrilled to be drawing again and actually getting better <3 I got into a bad slump with sewing, as I'm sure many people noticed from the lack of. I admit I took on too many projects and with getting full time at my job, my free time slowly disappeared, meaning less and less sewing. I really hoped I could have turned sewing into a full time job, and I did try. I realize now though, sewing is my hobby <3 I enjoy working on plush projects at my own pace and adding those fine details and such. So that is how it will be. I would still like to take commissions, but fewer at a time so I can work on gifts and personal projects as well. There's no way I'll ever stop sewing, I have WAY too much fabric and supplies to just up and quit ahaha. So you can still expect projects to come! Also, I'll be sure to start posting art dumps and drawings here! I've been hoarding it all on tumblr the past while.
And one major project I look forward to tackling, is a comic. It's a story I've slowly been working on and fleshing out the past 4-5 years, so I think it's time I finally get the ball rolling on this. Not sure when I'll have it up, but I'll definitely let everyone know <3 still need to find a site to host it on ( any suggestions would be helpful, I have a few in mind, but I always appreciate feedback).

I could go on and on, but this is lengthy enough. Long story short is, A LOT has happened the past 3 years, for better or worse.
 tldr : I'm still not taking plush commissions at this time. I will reply to notes that I can, but any notes from before May I mostly likely won't (it's been so long, I don't think my reply now would be very welcomed;;; ) To those few who did and are reading this, again I apologize. If you still wanted a quote on a plush, feel free to message me again and I'll get back to you ;o;/ 

:star: on a fun note, I'm also trying to clear out and minimize a bunch of my stuff (I'm too much of a hoarder but I feel bad just through out things). So I'll post sales and such periodically (from my plush creations to other stuffed toys and more). Speaking of sales, I have one big post and a new pokemon plush up for sale on tumblr ->  HERE and a pink Cutiefly HERE
If anyone's interested in anything, feel free to directly message me here on dA! :D these guys need good homes <3 otherwise, any reblogs or mentions are greatly appreciated.

I'll end this long post at that. Thank you everyone for reading through all this and just being awesome <3
I look forward to being more active here <3 Have a good night everyone!
