I was gone for a while because life got crazy leading up to a convention I attended in November. Then it was Christmas time. Then my dad suddenly died at 63, no warning.

so yeah I might not be around here a lot. come find me on tumblr (art, personal), twitter (art, personal) or any number of other sites in the meantime.

I haven't been visibly active on pkmncollectors (commenting or posting) in a long while since I've been considering what to do with my collecting habit. My love of bugs has extended to bug Pokémon, so I have more or less decided I should refocus the collection. I'm still going to keep a few favorites around (like my pile of Scraggy - can't part with those!), but I think I'm officially gonna start collecting bugs. This means some of my current stash will be needing new homes.

The timing of this decision also comes when my family may be moving to another town within a year. It would certainly be easier to pack up without needing to smush so many plush into boxes. So I'm going to be researching the market and offering my stuff on some combination of eBay and the comm sooner or later unless plans change drastically. I also am going to be doing more research into what is available of my favorite bugs and how expensive that stuff runs.

sheesh that was not what I expected (but in a good way)

I'll probably write a longer thing later; right now, I'm still reeling. Wow. And the credits were so different, yet right.

So that's where all the games like I remembered from my childhood have been all this time.

Oh my god the feels at the end though. You know a game does a good job when you truly feel like you're friends with the characters and they care about what happens to you. Daaaamn.

Boyfriend talked me into trying Fire Emblem Awakening. I have never played this series before.

Slightly concerned that you start out stabbing what I can only guess is your cute anime boyfriend with a big light spear thing.

can he not die please, he is cute

I like being an artist. When I want art, I can just go make it.

But I don't sew often, and my sewing projects are not typically very complex. I can mend clothes fairly well, sometimes make fitting adjustments, and rarely create plush. Rarely mostly because I am often too busy with art to work on something else for myself. I started a MapleStory Yeti backpack plush several years ago and still need to make his legs and feet.

So instead of commissioning art, I commission plush.

Such as these two, Nyomi and Amyntas, from Nonesuch Garden:

And now, since Channing/cwinget has opened for commissions of her dress-up animals, I'll be expecting another moth in my life...

I am unreasonably excited, especially because it's expected to be ready within a month, which means I can take it with me to MFF and make it my regular con buddy. (Amyntas filled this duty at AC, but he is considerably more delicate and would do better at home in the long run.)

AND since it's a dress-up animal, I can put a bunch of cute sweaters and scarves on it. Maybe I'll skip sleep one night to make her a tiny coat so she doesn't get chilly in Chicago with me...

If you have an original pony character, post a ref and its name. I'm doing 1-3 free badges as samples for upcoming cons since I haven't done ponies much. I know there's like 1.5 people who read this journal but I figured I'd offer it to LJ first since I've already done giveaways/contests in most other places.
