My Goals For The Future And My New FA/Twitter Accounts ๐Ÿผโœจ

Hello everyone! I have some big news. I have new FA and Twitter account, where I will be more open to offering a different type of content, somewhat adjacent to my current.

I’ve generally drawn only littlefurs and kidfurs, and tried to steer clear from actually kinky stuff, as I’m not super keen on my gallery combining both, even in separate drawings. I’ve also never been into the idea of splitting my galleries. However, after some gentle exploring over the last few months, I came to the decision to create my new SquelfDaycare account on FA yesterday. I made an accompanying Twitter account for it today, as well.

As you may remember throughout this year, I had one primary goal: to pay thousands of dollars of old debt to my good old friend. This, thanks to your support of my work, I accomplished last month.

The secondary (now primary) goal I mentioned is that I need to save 10k by mid-next year. That’s a lot of money I need to save up, in order to begin taking care of my mom who is getting up in years. And that’s going to be a yearly thing: every year I will be giving my husband 10k to cover my mom’s living expenses.

Then you may also remember all of the catastrophes that happened to us in the last few months. New ACs ($10,000), a new roof ($20,000 and counting) tenting the house ($1,500) a new fridge ($2,000, thankfully a gift from Grandma). I think I didn’t get to mention that we had some damage to the house that required a $1000+ patch job.

Basically, we are going to be in debt for a long time. Thankfully it is not credit card debt. It is interest-free debt to Grandma (but yes, we are paying her and started immediately, with an automated payment plan) and a low-interest loan from my wonderful sister-in-law, also something that’s already being set up with auto payments. Even with all the help we have had, this is a bad situation, and it will not be easy to cover this debt. We will be in heavy debt for at least four years.

My husband does not handle this sort of stress very well when it’s compiled with all that he deals with at work. The stress that has always affected him the most is that of debt. I am unhappy every single day that he, himself, is stressed and unhappy. I’m sure most of you can relate to not being able to enjoy a single thing in life if the person you most love is dreading every morning. So I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can continue to draw and be able to cover the monthly debt payment (around $500) all on my own –in addition to the 1k I need to make monthly to put towards my mom’s fund. I need to make $1,500 per month with my art, after all Paypal fees and such are taken off.

It was because of this that I began contemplating something I’d already been thinking about for the last few months. You might remember that for the warm-ups project, I suspended my “no adults in diapers” rule, something I had in place because I was just trying not to alienate all of my followers who like kidfur stuff only. Plus, for the longest time, my interest in drawing adults in diapers was just, not there, you know? No enjoyment. But I realized, drawing them a few times during this project, that I really do like to draw it, in my own specific way. I started to contemplate the possibility of a side account just for this content, where I’d feel more comfortable creating a specific brand for it. I also figured on this account I could draw spanking art featuring adult characters, definitely go more towards the kinky side, and explore something I’ve always wanted to but didn’t want to mix into my current brand.

I’m not sure how interested people are going to be in my upcoming ABDL stuff, but I figured perhaps I can find a middle ground where I am exploring new things and meeting my monthly income goal, and thus, bring my husband more peace. That is what matters to me most of all, and I would gladly draw my fingers to stumps to see him relax and laugh and not dread every day. There is no joy for me in anything I do, if he is unhappy or unwell. So in addition to wanting to explore new territory for my own artistic enjoyment, my motivation is very strong so I can take care of those I love.

I hope you will watch my new accounts too, and commission me there, as I really need your support. I’m really grateful for all the support I’ve received and continue to receive. Thank you so much!

Pre-Trip Announcements ๐Ÿ›ซ

Greetings, everyone! I am giving the last touches to my packing today. As you may already know, I am leaving on a family vacation. I will be gone from tomorrow 6/25 until Sunday 7/4. We will have a friend staying over to look after our house and our pets.

During this time, you will not be able to reach me. Or rather, you will be able to, but I would ask that you avoid doing so. I will try not to look at my phone/Telegram/emails. Mostly, I will monitor for emergencies.

โ›” Please do not insistently reach out to me after June 26th (which when our plane actually departs) if you don’t have an emergency. An emergency is something that absolutely cannot wait until I return (hint: anything commission related CAN wait until I return). Please wait until my return on July 4th to contact me.

On a lighter note, not only is this the longest vacation of my life, but also my first big family vacation (with my husband, mom in law and sis in law, Christopher’s Grandma, and a good family friend). These are all people I obviously love tons and the idea of going on this trip with all of them, of seeing New York City for the first time, of seeing the cabin in which Grandma lived with Grandpa, who will have been gone a year next month, of visiting the American Museum of Natural History, seeing the Statue of Liberty, and so many more things, of doing lots and lots of driving in beautiful places, it’s all a dream come true to say the least. ๐Ÿฅบโœจ

With that out of the way, I wanted to make clear what this means in terms of commissions.

๐ŸŒˆ There Are No Warm-Ups During My Vacation Week ๐ŸŒˆ

As this was established when the 100 Days Of Warm-Ups journal was posted, it will not affect anyone’s delivery dates. ๐Ÿ˜Š I took this week of vacation into account when I made the Warm-Up schedule. So, when you don’t see Warm-Ups posted for the next eight days, please know that everything is running as it should. This week was always a Warm-Up-less week from the start.

๐ŸŒˆ 4 Overdue Commissions ๐ŸŒˆ

Due to a lot of stuff going on in my life, including vet trips and special care for Tomoyo, my mom’s lengthy immigration procedures/paperwork, as well as the completion of my citizenship process last May, I had a few commissions go past my self-imposed “overdue” deadline, and one which I know will be overdue while I am gone. While it’s not like, terrible, and they are all for commissioners who are friends of mine and have always given me a long leash time wise, I want to write below which commissions are overdue, for full accountability and transparency.

I fully expect to complete these commissions before any others reach their due date.

  • Mwako (2 characters, fully rendered, already colored and currently shading, but won’t be finished until I return)
  • Island (3 characters, fully rendered, not yet started)
  • Snowthebear (5 characters, flat colored, not yet started)
  • Tugscarebear (2 characters, fully rendered, not yet started, will pass due date while I am gone)

I am bringing my iPad, so it is possible that all four of these commissions will see moderate to significant progress while I am gone. But my goal during the vacation will be to enjoy the vacation –if I draw it’ll be because I got tired of gaming and reading during my downtime. I really want to relax. I need it, badly.

๐Ÿ’– Thank you ๐Ÿ’–

I want to end this post by extending my gratitude for all the support I have received so far this year. Thanks to you all, I am slowly accomplishing important life goals. I appreciate all of my commissioners.

I hope to have lots of photos and fun anecdotes to share with you upon my return. ๐Ÿ‘‹

(I do expect to make one last post tomorrow, as it’s just a day of prep, we leave in the evening. So you’ll hear from me once more, but already, tomorrow it may be difficult to contact me, and you won’t get a response after Saturday. Ideally though, I prefer you just wait until my return to contact me. I never know if a friend or family member may contact me for an emergency, so getting messages means I can’t ignore them and it will be stressful to get them. Thank you so much.)
