New laptop, changes

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 17, 2016, 7:33 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.

I've been the proud owner of a brand-new HP Spectre x360 ultrabook for a good week now and it's a divine little device! The flat lighted keyboard is a definite plus, what with my room being quite darkened most of the time and doing most of the typing in the evenings. Though once I'm used to a keyboard I hardly have to look at it anymore. The touch and HD screen is quite a luxury as well :D

But with investing in a new laptop usually comes some preparations and tasks. Right this moment I don't have anything but my browser and the standard microsoft software on it. It will take some time to transfer all important files and softwares (and remember all those damn passwords...) before I can make full use of it. So for now I have to switch between laptops a lot to make use of stuff like my embroidery software and Photoshop and commission refs. This is a little bothersome so I might not be as quick to respond to orders on Etsy, though still within the timeframes I stick to.

After all this is done done it's time to throw out my old Toshiba, which is literally starting to fall apart (you served me well for 6-7 years old friend *sniff*). 

I haven't been particularily active I know. Been working a lot at very inconvenient times. :c

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

Planning on having new custom charms made, which technique/ material should I use? c: 

40 deviants said Printed acrylic, full colour
28 deviants said Metal with enamel, solid pantone colours
23 deviants said Lasercut- engraved plywood, three natural shades of wood
4 deviants said Printed plywood, full colour

Ok I have a question cuz I'm a little confused so I read ur commission page thingy and idk of there open or when the will be and I was also wondering what the starting price was or is it just what the difficulty rating is???? I'm rlly curious

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.
