FIXED: Poor connection and about that job... 23-07

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 21, 2014, 9:51 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.

It's ALIVE! Thankfully the internet connection problem we had has been fixed and I'm back online!

Oh and....about that job interview. I had it yesterday morning. But before that I got the grand tour first by a guy wearing casual shorts and a baggy tank top who introduced himself by first name only. (I had my doubts he was one of the head managers but then again we're currently in a heatwave so you never know XD ) Anyway, so I got a tour and I was immediately impressed! And just slightly intimidated because everything looked so tight, professional (marble floors!)and BIG!  

Afterwards I was lead to the office for the interview. They asked me some questions that I had to think about for a bit or possibly could've answered a little better (I was pretty nervous), but I felt the conversation went well... fine... It became less formal in the end when we started talking about my hobbies and personal interests. The woman also mentioned she, just like myself, graduated as vet tech so there was a certain understanding. 

So, they would either call me back that same day or the day after (which is today now). As the late afternoon slowly went by my good expectations started to fade. I had mixed feelings about the interview by then. It's horror to wait for that dreaded phonecall afterwards. And just then suddenly, the woman I talked to before called me on my cell.

Guess what?...

I GOT THE JOB!!! :happybounce: *SQUEAL* I couldn't be happier! She said I'm hired and they'd love to have me in their team! She also mentioned we had pleasant talk together and I gave her a very good feeling about it all. 

So, as of now I will be working full-time at a medication company as All round Pharmaceutical employee starting Monday. I'm so friggin excited! :happy: After so many rejections finally a job that suits my interests and educational background! Thanks to everyone for your encouraging words! I really appreciate it! :heart: :hug:

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

Who's gonna win the FIFA World Cup in Brazil? :)

Hey Goiku~ 
I am loving the new plushies by you!
I had a question though, do you do
repairs on plushies for those that commissioned you?
Kitty's eye colors are starting to fade away. D:
Maybe theres something I can do to fix it myself?
Let me know! 
Thank you so much! ^^
goiku Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014
Oh dear. I'm sorry to hear that. I've had one person with the same problem before. The material isn't supposed to fade so you must be one of the few who had a plush done with manufacturer flaw in the transfer material.
Could you please let me know the measurements of the eyes? I will send you a pair of embroidered eyes (same style) as a replacement that you can either glue or sew on yourself with ease. The only thing I would ask of you is to cover the slight shipping fee so i can send them savely to you ($2.50 USD).

for your help. :)
