Busy, busy, busy!

I thought I'd update you guys on what I've been doing recently, due to my lack of posting. I even brought pictures!

So, to start off with, I had a table at a winter sale. It was display only with commissions ready to be made. Sadly however, I only got one commission. I didn't run the table by myself. My sister, whom you can see glaring at me below, showcased some of her works, too. It was a long and boring event in which we had a bunch of kids clamor around and constantly play with the Pokémon, and ask me if I could make my prices lower.

After that, I continued working on a project I've been working on since September: Lucario. The original pattern can be found at I heavily modified it to suit my tastes, and I'm kinda proud how it turned out! *No offense to Bizzy, her work is awesome!* Everything was crocheted, including the pads on his feet and his eyes. You can see how big he is compared to my Wii remote!

And after I finished Lucario (and sadly gave him away:( ) I began making a small My Little Pony for a friend. Now, here's the story: My sister got into My Little Pony in early Autumn, and she pestered me to watch it. I didn't, but somehow I've turned into a Pegasister. I'm in love with Fluffle Puff (if you haven't seen her, go on Youtube!), and my fav of the Mane 6 is Rarity. Well, my sister got my guy friends into it as well, and now I'm surrounded by Bronies. Not that that's a bad thing, 'cuz it's not. It's actually really nice to see one of my best friends freak out over Pinkie Pie! Lol. So, I made him a male version of Pinkie. Below is the result. I did make a pattern, and I'll post it when I've finished making all the female Mane 6. Then I'll have the wings and horns. After that I suppose I should make a Nightmare Moon and Celestia version.......

He's about the same size as my Mini Horse, Mini Mew, and Mini Torchic patterns, maybe a bit taller. The eyes are just light blue circles, what I like to call chibi eyes. The cutie mark was made using yellow and light blue felt, and it was hot glued onto the pony. The mane I free-styled. I don't know how it turned out so good, but I'm happy it did!

And that's my update! I am currently working on my sister's Christmas present, and I'll post a picture and the link to the pattern when I'm done. Merry Christmas, and if I don't post before the new year, happy new year too!

I have an idea! But I need help.....

At this point in time, my family has reached a financial crisis. We are living off a very small amount given each month and are trying to get more money however we can.

This is where the idea starts: I have decided to begin commissions. Here's my plan: People email me with commissions, I whip them up, they pay me, and then I send them the finished project. Or should they pay me before I begin crocheting them so I can buy the materials? As you can tell, my idea is still in the making. I'm not sure yet how I would receive the money, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Commissions could be for Pokémon (my favorite things to make!), anime characters, cartoon characters, Disney characters, random amigurumi, and maybe even something like, if you send me a bunch of pictures of, say, a dragon, I'd try and turn it into a yarn project. Again, this idea is just in the making, but what do you guys think? Comment below with any thoughts, yay or nay, even if they're rude (although I would prefer you were nice to me :)
