Haha, I'm writing this in a McDonald's parking lot whilst facing their "NO LOITERING" sign (I've bought my fair share of Big Macs though so I think we're even). Reason being is I have no internet at home because our neighbor's new dog so graciously ripped up an above ground internet cable that the company assured me was a temporary fix when we moved in, and they company can't be bothered to come out and fix it any time before next month. Woohoo.
So what's up Stitchypony? Well besides that not too much. Tia is nearing completion with her massive mane and tail and wings and self. Expect some rad pics of her real soon, likely uploaded from this very Macdunnels. Also looking at a move soon, so this lack of internets was going to happen anywho. Fortunately it'll be hardly a delay in productivity, so no worries there-ways.
Now about that and the tone of my previous journal... I'm thinking really hard about how I can avoid doing it soonly, but my plans before long are to take on two lifesize pony commissions (non-princess types) at a temporarily raised rate to secure myself in a better location. It'll be three if I can hold off 'til I'm caught up on all commissioned work, but I may be forced into one final bout of emergency commissions. These would be taken on with the understanding that the customer would be reserving a slot after current commissions if I've not got them cleared yet, they would not take priority over my already paid for work. These hypothetical emergency commissions would also need to be paid at least 50% upfront. Given the volume of inquiries I've had lately I imagine competition might be fierce and while I don't enjoy taking on work on a "who can pay more when" basis, I don't know if I've got much of a choice anymore. I've got a nice place lined up, I just lack funding to get moved there as it's quite a ways away. But it'd be a very good changeup for me and my business. A real home instead of trailer park after trailer park.
Aaaanyway, I don't want to bore y'all with my personal life. All I'm saying is that I might be announcing some emergency commission slots to tack onto the end of my commish list as soon as the first week of July, but if I can help it I won't be taking on more work for much longer so I can lighten up my commish list and deliver plush to people who've been waiting a long time now. We'll see how that goes. Ppl who've been waiting to reserve a slot from me for a while, this could be pretty groovy for you.
So no internet, lots of work, maybe more workload but the chance at guaranteeing yourself a slot on my list, yay? Let me know what you think, voice your opinions, I'll be around to give 'em a listen before long. Don't be afraid to slap me in the back of the head and tell me off for thinking about adding to my current commish list, because I know I have. Still if I don't, think of that as a preview as to what my next opening will look like when I am caught up on works. Either way I need to get myself in a better place because it's getting rough for me where I'm at now, and I'm still dedicated to providing plush for all you lovely people. I'm just running out of options > ,<
