My Backyard Monsters

Creations from my imaginations

(Again,) I’M NOT DEAD!

This probably is going to sound old but - I am really so, so sorry for abandoning the blog again! Doing a double degree + honors is by no means leisurely, but now that I’m on my summer break, I promise to post at least a little more! I’ve been answering some of you guys’ questions (I’m so sorry I took this long to reply), so if you have any please don’t feel shy! I’m not going to say that there is no such thing as a stupid question, but I’ll say that “stupidity” is relative for different skill levels, and I’m definitely not here to judge, so don’t feel shy. If you don’t want me to reply publicly, because that publishes the question, let me know!

I’m working on completing several unfinished projects at the moment, and when I’m done with that I’ll get started on writing up patterns for stuff I promised a long time ago!

Also, if any of you are following me on Instagram, I’ve not been posting there either because something’s wrong with my account… hopefully it’ll be cleared up soon so I can keep you guys updated through that social medium too.

Okay, that’s about it! Boring post is at its end!

McCoy Family Adoption Fundraiser

Hey hey fellahz, what’s crackalakin’? Hehehe.

Just wanted to let you guys know about this really cool fundraiser I’m taking part in - the McCoy Family Adoption Fundraiser! The McCoy’s are an awesome couple who are looking to adopt a second son, Luke, from Korea, and while they have been approved¬†an adoption grant, it is a grant match program which requires them to raise half of the amount, $2500, in order to receive the full grant.¬†The lovely Stephanie reached out to me a few weeks ago, telling me about it and asking if I would be a part of it, and of course I couldn’t refuse! I’ve donated one of my Papoys to them, which I chose due to it being the most popular item in my shop, and it should go live with a whole lot of other awesome Etsy sellers’ items some time this week!

Remember awhile back I talked about getting a metal stamping set? Finally got around to using it! Progress shot: left to right.

WHY IS THIS SO MUCH HARDER THAN IT LOOKS?!

Side note: #fandoms :D

Working on multiple orders, yayy! I have two midterms and two papers due next week though… But procrastinating from studying isn’t really procrastinating when it’s productive, right? Hehehehehe… The lies I tell myself.
