X-MAS Gift exchange [CLOSED]

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 24, 2014, 2:03 PM

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.

UPDATE: Wow, well. That went way faster than I expected! ^^; All ten spots are filled up BUT... I decided, since the list filled up so fast, to add ONE more spot. This one will be given to someone completely randomly. So, if you missed out on signing up for this exchange, there's still a chance and just go ahead and send your note to join in! 
Plus, some people haven't been fully confirmed just yet so a few spots might open up in the next few days. I will draw a random name for the eleventh spot coming Thursday and will put up the official list for this year's exchange then.</b>

So... I organized a gift exchange some years ago and it was a great deal of fun to do. I love to make people happy with a gift during the holidays. The element of surprise and world wide scale makes it a really interesting experience. Some people here have inquired if I can do such a similar thing again this Christmas. At first I didn't plan on it, but since the status of my custom orders look very bright and positive, I have time to organize another personal gift exchange! With a selective few people, that is.

So, how does it work?

It's quite simple. You will send me a little gift through the mail and at the same time i'll send you a gift as well. It doesn't matter where you live in this world. It doesn't have to be anything big or expensive. It can be hand-made, store-bought, something you already own. Whatever you want really. :D You can ask me if you'd like to know a little about me and my personal interests of course. c: 

Rules ('cause there have to be some)

1. Both parties should note eachother when their gift has been shipped.
2. All gifts should be shipped in December 2014 (Doesn't matter if it arrives in 2015)
3. Please make it more than a folded drawing/ doodle. If you plan on making a print, ACEO, etc, please use material with a little more quality instead of standard A4 paper and pencil. 
4. Each person is responsible for their own shipping methods and costs. Use the cheapest way if you want c:
5. If you plan on sending something that is pre-owned, please make sure the item is not damaged or dirtied, or anything like that.
6. Something hand-made doesn't necessarily have be made by you. Another person can be involved.
7. Please make sure to include your own address so I know who the gift is from. c:
8. 10 people max and watchers only.
9. Please only enter if you're serious about being part of this.
10. Have fun and wait for your surprise!

How do I enter?

Simply send me a note with the message that you'd like to enter and include your address.
If you want to back out for some reason, please let me know timely.

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

I just can't keep it in after reading the 700th chapter... Uncle Gaara. How cute is that? <3

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.
