hi, patch commissions are open! i can do either hand-drawn fabric paint on black, white, or off-white fabric, or i can do embroidery - either normal embroidery, or cross stitch, on various fabrics or colors of aida fabric.
if you have the extra funds, consider getting a patch for yourself or a friend, or at least give this a boost!
so i made a thing, i don't really have much to add that i didn't already write in the gfm post but if you feel so inclined to toss a couple bucks and maybe share this around i would be so, so grateful 🖤
trans planet pin is now in my shop!

Thoughts on 'growing up', capitalism
Honestly, 'growing up' is such a bullshit idea on so many levels and we shouldn't have to ever. All I got out of it ever was having more expected of me with less and less help and understanding.
The expectations of reaching certain milestones at certain ages, having to prove your worth in an academic or economic sense are just messed up and I'm just totally sick of it and fed up.
Why should we have to do any of this bullshit when it doesn't grant us any joy or other advantages?
So yeah, I'm over 'growing up'. I'm going to be a child now in the best sense possible and all y'all should be able to too.
i got a sheet of beautiful paper at the craft store the other day. it's got a pattern of a really old-fashioned style world map on a purple galaxy background, except the map and all the text is done in silver holographic foil that goes rainbow when you tip it. i'm gonna make some cool envelopes out of it.
It's been sixty weeks since I saw Vienna
A bandage and a wide smile slapped across my face
I'll pick up my hiking boots when I am ready
And I'll put down my roots when I'm dead
@shade has a fuckin rad etsy shop and ive bought pins and stickers from him before and the quality is always super good and they ship quickly and nicely packaged. if you wanna get a gift for someone / yourself or just support a cool person (felix) you should check out his shop
soooo chances are i am gonna have to pay completely out of pocket for top surgery and idk how we're gonna raise the money yet but i'm just gonna leave my shop link here in the meantime ty (i'll have a new acrylic pin coming in soon!!)
