Project Open Squish Pre-voting dates

The dates for the Open Squish pre-voting have been announced and two of my entries are due to be in these pre-voting rounds!  Basically multiple entries of the same type will be voted on and the top two entries will move on to the actual voting rounds where the winners will be made into Squishables!  To vote you will need to go to and make an account (which they are doing to prevent spam votes) and then when voting you will be sent a confirmation email to verify your vote. I want to thank everyone who is going to vote for my entries and I'm hoping they do well enough to make it to the finals and possibly even win! X3  Thanks again so much!

Pre-voting for the Dodo entries will begin at 12:00am EST on Sunday the 14th!  Voting will be up for 24 hours before the winners are decided, my Dodo design is below~

Pre-voting for the Pug entries will begin at 12:00am EST on Wednesday the 17th!  Voting will be up for 24 hours before the winners are decided, my Pug design is below~

Thanks again so much for supporting me, it means so much!  I will also be making entries on the actual day of voting to remind people and it would mean a lot to me if you could share this with your friends!

Project Open Squish!

Something exciting happened today!  A couple weeks ago I entered a contest called Project Open Squish hosted by Squishable.  For those of you who don't know what Squishables are, they're basically big, fat, round stuffed animals, so pretty much they're one of my favorite things X3  The contest they were holding was to design a Squishable and I ended up entering six designs (after the only design I entered was rejected but they really wanted me to enter some more since they loved my art style)  In the end, 4 of the 6 designs I entered made it into the finals (and that's about 50 designs out of the 2000+ that were entered)!!!!  I'm so excited and can't wait for the voting to begin!  

Two of my designs are in a animal only vote off, where multiples of the same animal will go against each other and the top two will go to the final voting rounds!  Those two are the Dodo (which was super surprising) and the Pug,

The other two designs will be up for vote in the Fall/Spring (not sure when that is, but I'll make sure to post when it's happening) voting period.  Those are the Beaver (which is my absolute fav of the bunch) and the Puffin!

I am just way too excited that so many of my entries made it into the top and I hope at least one of them might win!  Just too exciting X3
