I mentioned a while I go I have plans with a friend (Silvolf) to have a month long visit at her place this summer (June to end of July) and as such I have to start saving for that. The goal is set and while it's high it's reasonable.
So, come the next few months I will be opening a LOT of commissions (once I'm done with most/all the ones I have to do still) so I can save up for that. The thought of going back 'home' to see everything AND to hang out with a dear friend of mine has me pretty excited but I am naturally a pessimist SO as you can imagine I'm biting my nails on how the heck I'm going to save up that much money on my art job alone.
I cannot spend any money toward this from my other job as that all goes toward bills and such -- so the only money I have to save for this is from art.
The deadline to make the money is May which seems a short time but I've done it several times before with consistent work so I hope I can do it again. However, again -
