or do some more crocheting


I made this Kereru as a Christmas present and I’m really happy with the way it turned out! I’m amazed at how far I’ve come since I started crocheting; I never knew that doing a project freehand could be so fun.


Hi! It’s your friendly neighborhood Starving Artist ™ here to once again gently remind you that I do, in fact, like to crochet things for money. (◕‿◕✿)

Some more helpful information to keep in mind:

  • Please have several reference pictures of your idea ready before asking me for a quote. If you are ordering clothing, I will also ask you for your measurements. Please also let me know if you are allergic to any fiber types.
  • I take Paypal and USD. I ask for payment upfront, so I can order materials for your project. I will disclose my PayPal information after we agree on a price.
  • Projects are completed in the order they are received and paid for. If you need it by a certain date, please let me know beforehand.
  • I reserve the right to keep pictures of the finished project as part of my portfolio, and to post them on my social media accounts as examples of my work.
  • If I can fit it into a flat rate padded envelope, USPS Priority Mail shipping is $5, as long as you’re within the United States. If you’re not, international price varies by size and country of destination.
  • I can be contacted through instant messages, asks, my deviantArt account at MasterPlanner. (✿◠‿◠)

So, I’m in kind of a tough spot…  I need to make some money because I’ve been hit pretty bad with car trouble.  I’m in some crazy debt after my bank card was hacked and now I’m having to get expensive work done to my car to get it to pass a Virginia state inspection.  I’ve already had to borrow $655 (that I have to pay back) to get work done.  We thought that would be it, but it looks like we’ll be spending between $75 to $525 more to get it to pass.  At this point, I’ll be spending more than my car’s worth to get it fixed, and if that’s the case, I’m going to need to get a new car and I don’t know if I can afford car payments.
So right now, I’m working an okay job, but I have rent and insurance to pay, plus a crazy credit card bill from being out of work and having my bank account hacked.  The only thing I can think to do is to try to sell my crochet Paopu fruits.
