Time for a new laptop

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 3, 2016, 1:48 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.

Yeah, the moment's been coming for a while now. Truth is, my laptop's literally falling apart. No seriously, the housing is being kept together with ductape! XD Yeah.... My Toshiba Satellite has been serving me well for over six to seven years now. Much better than my previous old Acer. 

Anyway, a good laptop is essential for me. So there are some features that it needs. 

+ Heavy duty. It needs to be able to handle multiple heavy software such as Photoshop, 3D design programs and embroidery software. Even during hot summer temperatures.
+ A nice quality screen with good colours.
+ Anti-glare screen (preferably)
+ Fast
+ Decent battery
+ Needs at least 2 USB ports
+ Price below €1000. After all quality usually costs more but it's better in the long run. Though there's a limit to my budget.
+ No MAC. As much as I love Apple products and it's slick designs, I've become used to Windows. Plus, various softwares I use can only be used on windows. 

I kinda have my eyes on this model already. The HP ENVY 13-DO10ND. But if anyone has suggestions I'm open for them :D Buying a new laptop is always an important investment for me.

Hi all!
My name is Moniek Zeilstra, a 27 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. I've been doing commissions for people many years now 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

When are you, as an artist, most motivated and inspired?

Quick question- since you make a bunch of stuffed animals, do you have a bunch on your bed just sitting there and around the house? I have always wanted to ask a plush maker that! :3
Nice plushes by the way!
goiku Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Nope, not the ones I make that is. c: They would get dusty or dirty if i'd do that. Instead I keep all commissions and pre-made plushies in plastic containers, boxes or bags.

Cool! Hey, one day, if you're really bored, get all your stuffed animals, and put them on your bed, or somewhere comfortable, and just cuddle them for a while ^^
Then you have the chance to re organize!
Thank you for answering! :)

can i have a link to your commission prices ??
goiku Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I don't have a specific list with prices, as they tend to vary per plush. If you'd like an approx price quote, please check my commission guide. You can find it on my userpage c:
