So I owe some folk an explanation. Specifically, in regards to things I’ve promised or been paid to make for them, be it themes, or art, or even threads I said I’d start or reply to and never actually did. I’d like to preface this with the fact that this is VERY hard for me to admit to, and it has taken me months to reach a point where I believe it necessary; and also with the fact that this is NOT an excuse. I fully intend to complete these projects, and I thank you so much for your continued patience.
I’ve been, recently, in a not-so-great place vis-a-vis mental health and emotional composure. As a result, my drive to do anything creative has taken a hell of a beating.
This has been going on since December, in this ‘full’ extent. So, pretty much everything from thanking people for their Christmas gifts to me, to commissioned work, has gone unfinished and has only increased the problem by heaping guilt on top of all the other issues.
It’s hit an extreme low twice since January, and has lead to my quitting my job after the most recent breakdown. I am working very hard on being in a place in which I can do just about anything (On the bright side, I managed to do my dishes today and I even brought my laundry upstairs to sit on my bedroom floor instead of my basement floor.) including these projects. It’s all small steps; little things every day as I begin to feel like myself again.
If anyone is still interested in the work that I owe them, know that it IS on my list of goals, especially the things that I was paid to complete. I cannot apologize enough for ripping you off with how long you’ve waited for what I owe you, beyond promising that I will complete it as soon as I am able. To those who have sent their money, I even offer a refund - it’s unconscionable for me to keep it, at this point, so if you are interested in such a thing, please contact me and let me know.
Thank you for your patience, for understanding, and for reading through this big long post of garbage, if you have. I promise to have your stuff done soon.
