I didn't steal your money and run.

I've "blacked out" my DA account until I can post every single plush commission I have.
If you don't want it or just want a refund, I will refer you to my email address one last time:
Please state your plushie, your price, and your current address and I'll wire the money back.

Otherwise, I will continue to work between jobs.
It doesn't matter how far along in your plushie I am.  I'll return your money in full.

I flew the coop afraid that my lack of progress onset by some trying times was upsetting people who were tired of excuses.  I vowed not to return to DA until these things were handled.  Y'all have a right to complain, so I won't take down your comments.  It's just sucky for me, but I'm done trying to be the entrepreneur I'm not.  I'm just a college-girl who had a few years of time on her hands.

Don't expect to get commissions anymore.  That's okay.  I just want those who I've bothered to see some higher note here and get closure.
I don't expect your forgiveness. Or your trust.  Just your peace of mind?

Damn some ppl just gotta mess everything up. I'm so sorry you're swamped with shit... and I'm sorry some people can be assholes. You're only ONE person it's not like you have a company! Anyway I hope you won't stop making plushies. My mom sews too and she's totally impressed by your work. I would have loved one of your plushes and I would have waited 10 years or even after you had grandchildren lol. Don't let impatient jerks ruin your creativity. Good luck in the college world. I know how it is

Awww... I find an awesome plushie maker here on DA that has done a LOT of Pokemon stuff, and it looks like you're not doing them anymore. :( That makes me sad.
ShinoMiko Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2009
Hey, I know this is a pretty late reply, haha, I've been away from DA for a pretty long time... but if you do still want to/find the time at some point to make my plushie, I definitely still want it.
But as a fellow college-girl, I completely understand not having time. School will always be more important than almost anything else, sadly.
I hope you've having a better time now. =)

Haha, when you have the time, I would like to order aplushie from you....

And I dont care about the lead time, I just want the flareon and her could be the best of friends.

I hope you get it all under hand, and remember dont sweat the small stuff, and it's all small stuff...

"miss you i hope everything turns out ok" Couldn't have said it better.. though I may have included a few more words. Hope you're doing okay! :hug:

Good luck, ma'am. I was gonna commission you, but you seem a liiittle swamped right now. I hope you don't give up. :)

Just pace yourself, I assure you, it will get done
Kat-Aclysm Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2008
Best of luck.

I hate people who demand progress all the time. What are they thinking? That the work is going to be done faster?

Then they pull the innocent card and say "I just wanted you to contact me". That can take a lot out of your day in itself, replying takes time, especially if you want to delicately word that you're not working on it, or not done yet.

I freakin HATE impatient people and this is why I never take commissions. Jerks. >_>

Best of luck. I seriously hope the idiots haven't soured you from doing this because you produce incredible work. I miss seeing you around the UFOCatcher forums.

Take care of yourself. Your life, your college, and taking care of your wellbeing is far more important than some stupid people on the internet demanding a sewn plush toy.

Well, knowing how busy you have been, toppled by what has been going on in your life, I can understand why it has taken so long for you to get everything done like this. While blacking out dA wasn't the best way of dealing with it, stress is a complete monster, and that, my friend, I completely understand.

I want to say that in all of this time, I have missed you, and wished you would come back to dA! And I hope you'll drop me a line some time because it has been such a while since we last spoke. But please, do take your time.

I'm sad to hear that :(

When you have commissions to complete, it really isn't a good idea to temporarily abandon your deviantART account, especially when you've been visibly active on facebook for all of this time. It leaves people with the impression that they're being scammed.

It is great that you want to complete the plushies on your to-do list, but you also need to make sure to answer messages from your customers on a regular basis so there is at least some kind of communication going on. That's usually all a customer needs to stay at ease.

With that being said, if you plan to continue to take commissions in the future, then it would probably be best to limit the number that you take each month so you don't overwhelm yourself. It seems to be the main problem that you have here, judging by your current schedule.

I was wondering why you haven't posted anything in a long time, and why I never got my Elerunt for entering your last contest ^^; . I don't know what's going on in your life now, but I hope things get better for you, and I really hope you can make plushies again in the future :sad: .
UmiHime Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
i hpe you dont quit making plushies forever.. it would be such a shame..

Woo! I'm happy! Kupo!

I thinks maaaybe you just took on too many commissions at once. Patience, people!
richardbrady Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Like I said in the email, much better to let people know what's going on than to cut them off... totally blacking out dA makes people feel like you're scamming them, which I understand you're not. I'm sure no one hates you, but you gotta keep some sort of communication going otherwise people will assume the worst.
zenimoonchild Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
sounds like your doing alot
Producer1 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
i think it's a good thing for apologizing, but most of us probably would have preferred some sort of contact before this happend, i am still waiting for my green elerunt from the contest, and im sure everyone does feel sypathetic to your dilemmas, as i do. however there could have been better ways to handle this.

we, or at least i, dont blame you, and im not trying to flag your page with angry spam, i dont think your going to be hated by the DA community just because your orders are a little late. ^_^ cheer up, and handle things in a timely fashion, im sure things will work out.
Xuui Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
omg how could you! i am both shocked and appalled. Forgiveness? BAHH!!! i give you NONE!!!!!! I WANTS MY MONIES BACK NOWWWW!!!

haha jk. welcome back. now i can randomly torment you and know it's going to be read. :D :D :D
Startaro Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Well I'm glad nothing absolutely serious has happened such as death or anything...
But I still wish I would have received my two elerunts (one from the contest and one that I bought). I guess I'll have to be like everyone else and just wait for it.

I'm really glad you've cleared things up for those of us wondering what happened to you. I'm wishing the best for you, and good luck with all the orders. :)
Ryunkitty Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
I'd still like to know why i didn't receive the specifications i asked for on my plush... Ones i payed extra for and never received. The faux fur and the wire in the tail. Payed extra, didn't get. It's foot tell off. :(

I just wanted info...but you never emailed or noted me back...I still want my plushie. I just wish you had contacted me after the few time I tried to with you.
justjakk Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Trust. That isn't an issue here. I would hope we talked enough that you could tell me anything you needed to. I told you before, I had a crush on you. I still do. It just pains me to see a friend who doesn't think it safe to talk to me. I know it must worry you that we don't trust or like you for this, but you don't have to worry about me. I was so worried that something happened to you. I didn't want to believe you would steal from us, but when you didn't answer my notes, I feared the worst. I missed you Carly. I just want to be able to talk to you like we used to. I just want you to know, no matter what, you can always talk to me.
denkimouse Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
good luck, captain. *salutes* i wont ask for a refund or plush progress, i'll just let you do what you need to do.
