Hello everyone so sorry for the lack of posting! It's been a long busy stretch since my last post, the end of the term and lots of things to do over x-mas break. I have been busy with sewing and getting ready for my last year of undergraduate school.  My boyfriend and I have been talking about plans for what we will do once school is finished. He is planning on going back to school and I would love to get an entry level position at ANY video game or film production company. We've been talking about moving to California and also about teaching english in Japan or China. Of course all of this is a little far off still but I'm sure this year will go by fast what with me finishing everything up and all. 

I created a new Etsy store over break, there wasn't really anything wrong with my last store but my real name was attached to the store and I like to keep my crafts and my fine art separate. SO if any of you are interested there isn't much in there right now but a new totoro design never the less do check it out ^_^ I will be adding more things before school gets back in mostly Valentines day themed items:

       

A couple of dittos that I made, which recently sold they will be restocked tonight or tomorrow. I'm hoping to make some more cute pastel pokemon plush for valentines day. Not sure what else to make right now for the time being I'm just having a lot of fun making cute things and stuff I enjoy. I have made a few other plush pieces that I may use at my next BFA critique this spring. I was pretty thrilled that the dittos sold so quickly they got a lot of good feedback on tumblr and in the plush communities here on live journal. If you are interested in a smallish custom for Valentines day my customs are currently open. You can post here or visit my new store URL:

I have been steadily collecting new Pokemon plush lately. I lost focus and have picked up a few new favorite pokemon and now collect: 
 
 

This is my current collection. I have a sentret friends plush on the way. My newest plush is sort of a grail for me because I couldn't find him for so long:
 

Swinub! I ordered him from some site over the summer little did I know that the site was actually out of stock and I'm sorry but I refuse to pay 28.00 for such a small plush!!! I finally found him over at pkmcollectors a week ago. He is so soft and a beautifully made plush. 

Well I suppose that is all for me tonight. I really hope to be more constant with my updates. As usual I hope everyone is well and a warm welcome to any new followers! 

if anyone is interested I have a tumblr where I usually post a lot:

Hello everyone, schools back in an I have already been so busy! Things haven't been too bad I like 3 of my classes I may switch out of my Fibers class though. I'm not sure if I have the energy to put up with the people in it or not just yet. MY creative contemporary class is going to be wonderful I think, our first assignment is to do 100 drawings by Monday, I have 14 right now and hoping to have another 7 by the time I go to bed, we'll see. I have to give a 10 minute talk about my artwork tomorrow, I'm a bit nervous but I think ifI read from my notes and stay on track I will get through ok.

I have been making cute pearl hair flowers to spruce up my hair a bit, I'm trying to grow it out so that I can some day have long white hair like the Star from Stardust =) Does anyone else have any tricks for making your in between hair cute? 



I hope everyone else is doing well, and for those of you in class I hope you are having an easy back to school week! Here's a few images of my clips and an image I did in AI the other day, I'm getting the hang of it finally =)





 Thanks for looking ♥ Catsy

But I must go on, for it is never finished. Even when I wake, I cannot tell what is real, and what I am dreaming as I move and speak and eat my dinner. I remember what cannot have happened, and forget something that is happening to me now. People look at me as though I should know them, and I do know them in the dream, and always the fire draws me nearer, though I am awake. Amalthea, The Last Unicorn

I was called into work unexpectedly today, so to anyone that has purchased things from me they will be shipped out Saturday now, or Friday if I have time =( So sorry, I wasn't supposed to work today gah.

Driving onto campus for work, and the streets are packed with arriving students, everyone is so full of energy and excited but my own heart is just aching. I feel like summer never happened, it went so quickly because I had classes, there is still so much stuff I want to make, draw and sew. School is so hard for me, I am constantly anxious and nervous around people here. I have nothing in common with them and the long hours on campus most days from 11-9pm is just so exhausting not to mention the drive to and from which takes 30 minutes. I cannot wait to be finished, I have never really been young and immature, not in the ways that they are. I just don't relate to most people and any friends I have ever truly loved have moved so far away. I'm so sorry for a sad post but I had to write it down some where. I know I will try to make the best of this year but I am in no way excited to go back. I just don't get any alone time when in school and it makes me so tired.



Sad things aside I have finally watched Gone With the Wind and I am SO excited, it is such a wonderful classic, I have been meaning to watch it for years now and I just loved Rhett Butler, he was so handsome and charming, he's on my list with Mr. Darcy now. It was wonderful to watch it with my boyfriend and to cuddle up. It certainly made me feel better. I also went to a great garage sale the other day and found the most beautiful skirts to reconstruct just wonderful floral patterns! I'm so excited. I also finally ordered The Last Unicorn from Amazon that I have been eyeing =) A few new purchases from the pokemon collectors community, still haven't gotten my giant Skitty plush but I am waiting patiently ^_^

I finished my art trade for zealey yesterday as well (finally) she just loved it so I was really excited:


Smuggpuff showing off her sandcastle building skills and Shiny baby Lapras. I twas so much fun to do this and I am learning so much about Adobe Illustrator in the process.

Hoping to finally go see Scott Pilgrim tonight, I've heard good things I just hope Micheal Cera doesn't bother me too much =P

Hope you all are having a beautiful day!

Hey guys Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It was definitely a very hot, muggy weekend here but my boyfriend and I got some fresh air at the folk festival! The festival was sort of a disappointment, it was cut down to about 1/3 its usual size! They cut a bunch of food stands and the stage that is out in a field where you can dance and lay down at the end of the day. Not to mention the remaining food stands raised their prices and many of them weren't even ethnic! I was so bummed to see big food chains like TGIFridays and Blimpies with big stands, the Thai food stand didn't make it out either and we had to go to the Middle Eastern restaurant to get food. so in any case *thumbs down* Lansing =((( Oh well we made the most of our weekend even if we spent more time inside places than outside at the festival!

I took LOTS of photos just hit the cut to see them =3

Folk Fest Pictures!Collapse )



I have been keeping very busy since the festival and making lots of stuff since I go back to school next week. I've been doing mostly sewing but also a few things for myself here and there as well as some doddles. I am a little rusty with drawing because I have been doing a lot of sewing instead this summer but I threw together two images one for me and one for mariahpixie =)


This one is of me and my Skitty and Delcatty from Soul Silver =3. The Skitty's name is Tesla and the Delcatty is Prissy.


And here's the one I did for Mariah she sent me a bunch of awesome skitty doodles so  I threw this together as thanks =D


I did a little pampering for my DS, because it was looking a little dingy so here is the pouch I made and a few charms:


Charmmy Kitty and Skitty! I'll be using the two off and on so I don't get bored =D


 Made this dress to wear back to school on Monday, I couldn't afford new clothes this term so i decided to make some using old clothes and a bit of new fabric =)


Close-up on the pattern it is SO freakin cute =D



Whew! So don't forget about the raffle for the free plush that is going on until the end of this week rules and other info is available over: stardusst.livejournal.com/1120.html Thanks for taking the time to read my journal everyone! I'll post again soon ♥♥♥
