UPDATE ~ 12/2 - GUYS - IT'S DECEMBER ~~ I'm hoping to scrape enough money together by this upcoming weekend to purchase my ticket-- SO if you are planning on commissioning me - or have a reserved spot and haven't had a chance to pay yet - I'd LOVE to get the money by sometime this week if possible at all! AND I still have 4 slots open guys!! I still need money to cover my bills the week I take off work and also to have some money while I'm out there visiting my friend - so don't think commissioning me after I get my ticket isn't still going to help. THANK YOUUU GUYYSS (:
UPDATE ~ 11/17 - Another spot was snagged X) THANK YOU!! There are only 5 out of 10 slots left open guys!! Please note me if you want to reserve a spot! Thank you again guyyyss - you are making me so happy ahh
UPDATE ~ 11/25 - 6 MORE DAYS TILL DECEMBER 1ST!
Thank you to EVERY ONE OF YOU - who has commissioned me so far OR have reserved a spot. (AND also to those of you who want to commission me -- but lack funds - your journal posts also help and I love yoooouu)
SO far I have $103 saved -- soon it will be around $135 and OVER $50 of that money is from commissions. SO again- THANK YOU SO MUCH MY DEAR WONDERFUL FRIENDS. It means so much more than I can express over typed letters ;w;
I still am trying to save $200-$250 though -- That means I need $65-$115 more WHICH doesn't look so bad actually! AH we can do thiiiiss.
Therefore - if you are able to commission me -- even just a $5 commission will help towards my goal!!
I still have 6 slots open guys! I'd love to see them all filled ;w;
Send me a note even if you are simply interested. Because if you don't have the money right now - but will in the near future - you can snag a spot X)
As always - thanks guys!
Update ~ 11/11 - Added commission slots!
Hello hello ~
With the current hours I'm working at my job, occasional babysitting, paying bills, AND helping out my parents with expenses (AND the doctor appointment I had to go to yesterday for my cough >.< ) it's getting really difficult to save money. AND all I really want for Christmas this year is to go visit my friend =sakuraartist who lives a state over - 7 HOURS away. It drives me crazy she's so close - YET so far.
Fortunately, my plane ticket will probably only be $200-$250 if the prices don't fluctuate too much by the time I have the money. SO I'm trying to save and collect money as FAST as possible. My goal is to save up $200 at LEAST by the start of December. I may end up selling some books, video games, manga, anime, etc. That's how desperate I am to save up for a ticket.
I wanted to post a journal just so you all are aware of what I really, REALLY want to do. And also remind you that I'm open for commissions. I will draw ORIGINAL CHARACTERS and FANDOM CHARACTERS (again). (I can do writing commissions too!) I will do my very best ;w; I will workworkwork so hard! So, if there's any way at all you can commission me OR donate anything towards my ticket - I will sob, flail, and love you forever and ever and ahhhh... I just don't know how to explain how desperate I am for this. I'll do nearly anything to save up/collect the money.
I only have a few close friends and they all live so far away from me - so I battle this intense loneliness a lot. Which is a big reason why I want to be able to go and see her so bad asap. I'm sure I'm not alone here.
The trip is also going to be helpful for us because in MAY - we will be at Momocon in Georgia. I'll be helping Amelia sell prints of her BEAUTIFUL art and we will also be advertising for the webcomic we are starting. A lot of planning needs to be done for both our comic and the convention and I honestly think it will be easier in person.
Have I said enough yet?
Goshh... sorry - I just needed to get this out so you guys at least know. I'm not going to beg for money or pester you guys -- because in the end it's your choice AND I know how broke most people are these days. But I figured what the heck -- it doesn't hurt to post a journal. I'll also post about it on Facebook and well, I guess we shall see what happens.
OH and here, in case you haven't seen -- COMMISSION PRICES can be found here --> fav.me/d5gqsy3
