Exciting news for December! 23-11

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 23, 2014, 5:04 AM

For commission inquiries and price quotes, pleased contact me at:

As mentioned before I WON'T be accepting new plush commission until I've completed the whole current list. It would put too much pressure on me as my work load is already huge.

Commission news

Right now I'm super stoked. I finally had a quiet weekend without interruptions or other things to do. And it shows because I was able to finish 3 plush commissions! I'm not gonna say which ones they are just yet until they are fully ready for shipping (some need to dry a night or two before it's safe to box them) but I can't wait to show them! 

Some days off in December

Not only that but seven days from now I have a week off from work, because, like a lot of my collegueas, I was forced to take a week off in December since i've been working too many hours in total lol. I intend to spend those days fully on plush commissions (well, not 24/7 of course but you get what I'm going for) so most of them (maybe all) can be shipped out in December, before or during the holidays.

New patterns

I'm currently very busy developing some new plush patterns to expand the choice for custom orders. Plus, it's also partly for myself. I feel certain possible options for the audience is missing but it'll be a fun change for myself as well. Some of my own personal projects I have planned for 2015 will require these patterns. For example, I will be using a standing feline pattern and a universal sitting pattern that will be useful for many different kind of animals. However, before I can start using them actively they still need to be thoroughly tested and erased of flaws.

Enamel Charms

Lastly, I'm excited to announce that the metal chibi Kitsune charms I had made and you guys voted for, have been shipped last week from the UK. So they'll be here, probably in a few days. I have absolutely NO idea what they look like, except for the proof that I agreed on so it'll be a surprise for me as well :la: You can see the original (not final!) charm design below. They will be around 1 inch with a black-plated finish for the metal. A percentage of this batch of 50 pieces will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop very soon!

Still laptop issues

Unfortunately, the problem with my laptop and windows software hasn't been fixed yet. My brother will have a look soon. I already did my research to make sure it isn't a hacker or anything. It seems there's a little bug in the software. Fortunately, Google Chrome (or any browser) isn't acting all retarded anymore and I can use it again without issues. That means I can also log into both of my gmail accounts again without the browser crashing on me. So that's at least something...

Etsy shop:…

Hi all!
My name is Moniek Zeilstra, a 25 year old hobbyist. I graduated for my paraveterinary education because I absolutely LOVE animals! I live in a small village in the Netherlands (Holland), located in Europe.

My passion is making stuffed animals, realistic or cartoony. I mostly create fursonas, realistic animals and mythical creatures but will try to do anything that fits my style though. Since 3 years ago I've been doing commissions for people and don't plan on quitting with that anytime soon.
My goal is to make detailed, high quality crafts for an affordable fee!

Beside sewing I also draw and sculpt at times. Basically I'm one for trying out things so more activities will probably added in the near future c:

Next to creativity I also enjoy anime/manga and japanese culture a lot and go to conventions in cosplay occasionally.

Thank you for taking a look at my gallery! And always feel free to follow my work :D

Hi, I sent you an email over 3 weeks ago asking about an update regarding an embroidery com and I haven't heard anything from you. Understandably, I've gotten a little worried. 

I'm not trying to rush you or anything, I just wanted to know how far you've got left to go. e_e

I apologise in advanced...

oh sweet gods, you are going to need a new wig for your next gaara cosplay... Have you seen the the finale shots yet?!!!
goiku Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014
It took me a few seconds to register what you meant XD haha (long day). But yes, I will have to if I decide to make his final and last (*sniff sniff*) outfit. (Easy on the hairglue Gaara!). I have only seen some sketches of the movie. Did any new pics come out? D:

He's cute lol! Soo clean cut. Although, I do miss his ruffled up hair though. Just the last two chapters of naruto are new and nothing else on the movie yet. Nothing else yet.

Honest opinion about that last chapter 700. What did you think on how it was written?
goiku Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014
Dangit XD I wanna see an extended trailer!
I have mixed feelings about Gaara's new style. The whole crisp 'look at me being all prim and cut' look makes him look more mature I guess and it fits his status. (He reminds me of Erwin from Shingeki no Kyojin lol.) Don't hate it but I kinda liked his messy mop as a kiddo. Oh well, as far we've seen it's different in the final movie again. Lawnmower haircut XD

One thing annoys me each time though. Why does Kishimoto always put him in such oversized clothes? D: You'd think he's grown into them by now >_> 

As for the the chapter in general. We don't know what's going to happen next exactly, but I already had a feeling a sequel with the next generation would be coming up. It makes up for the abrupt ending. Because ending the 'Naruto' manga at chapter 700 did sound quite abrupt to us fans and I do think the last part after the war in 699 was rather rushed. I'm happy to see Naruto alive and being the Hokage though! Kishimoto didn't break his promise and made his dream come true in the end. I had my doubts for a while but Naruto's alive and well, and has an adorable mini clone with Hinata (and a laptop, wow technology has really improved. No more scrolls?). Finally, the start of chapter gave me a rush of nostalgia and I like how the whole chapter was made in the classic water color style. I think it was a fitting end. 

Oh and ShikaTema ftw <33 We all knew it would happen.
