some sad news

Journal Entry: Mon May 11, 2015, 9:39 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.

Unfortunately I heard that my job contract won't be extented for whatever reason, because the reason my boss gave me, well, i don't buy it. Now, this didn't come as a complete surprise as the company isn't doing so great anymore and gradually falling into financial peril. Still, it's frustrating and a little upsetting. I'm definitely gonna miss some of my colleagues.

Now comes the big question.. what will I do now? My contract ends at the end of June so I have some time to look and apply for another job. However, the idea of starting my own bunsiness (part-time) by making a living off of my plush and embroidery work is once again floating through my head. It's very tempting and a lot of people around me say I should take the risk and just do it. 

I need to think about this for a few days. But right now I'm gonna work on some plushies c:

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

Anyone who knows a modelling material (polymerclay, epoxy, airdry clay) that becomes clear like glass? I want to add transparant parts to a sculpture. 

8 deviants said Using clear resin isn't an option in this case.
6 deviants said I know something! *leave comment*
5 deviants said Plus, I want to see if there are other options.
3 deviants said I've heard some good things about "Sukerukun" though i've heard it shrinks alot

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. :)
