New job, update 23-06

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 23, 2015, 1:59 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.

First of all, my apologies for the serious lack of activity on my side. I'll try to reply to any note or email i've received asap. I've been busy and very preoccupied with various things. This is also kind of a weird week with mixed feelings for me.

Next Monday will be my last workday of my current job and it feels a tad unpleasant as it nears. I'm not looking forward to leave my colleagues, some of whom have become friends, behind. Fortunately! I've had a interview last Tuesday and got hired without much effort, as I had hoped. I'm picking up my old job as mail deliverer (by bike) for an undetermined amount of time. When I told the recruiter I was already familiar with the function she was fully convinced and after an informal chat even offered me an alternative, which I declined lateron because of the long, inconvenient driving distance. 

I received a comfirmation yesterday afternoon and was pleased to hear I can start on the 6th of July, where the contract of my current job ends on the 29th of June. And I'm REALLY looking forward to it. I've missed working in the fresh air and having some more spare time for other things. Unlike now I'll be working about 2 to 3 hours a day with possibly a day or two off every week. It'll give me plenty of time to do other stuff but still make an income to cover the monthly bills. 
It's just for the summer period for now but the recruiter said possibilities for a part-time function afterwards will be open for me if I'm still looking for something less temporarily by then.

Despite my lack of activity online I haven't sat still though. I finished a few commissioned plushies and I'm working on an entry for a contest, which needs to be finished really soon. I'll make pictures really soon.

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. 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
Interests Favorite colour version?

Oh I finally found your account again!  I contacted you once or twice on my old account about a plush commission at one point.  I'm so happy I'm able to look at your amazing work once again!  I'll be one of the first to commission you once you're back open!  I can't even begin to explain how much I love your plushies x3

Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!

I got that from a friend and now am spreading it amongst some friends.

Hey, I see you are a very experienced plush maker. :) If I can ask, do you know the best method on how to dye or color a plushie? I expand this issue further in this…

You don't have to find an answer if you don't know. I'm just asking in CASE you know how. :)
