"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present."

-Kung Fu Panda

I’ve heard a great deal about you, Fa Mulan. You stole your father’s armor, ran away from home, impersonated a soldier, deceived your commanding officer, dishonored the Chinese Army, destroyed my palace, and… you have saved us all.

My favorite Disney movie of all time.

A lot of people assume it’s because I’m Chinese and so I must love it. And it’s a little bit of that.

But more than that, it’s because this is the first Disney princess movie that I can remember really respecting the main female character. The film celebrated her for her intelligence, her courage, her perseverance. It chronicled her self-doubt, that she couldn’t sit back and be just a pretty flower, and how she grew to accept that. She’s the first Disney princess I watched and was like, wow. She’s so strong. I want to be like her when I grow up.

Every time I watch it and the scene with the emperor comes up after all the action shots and swelling music, I feel shivers going down my back.

And I’m like, damn right you go girl.

Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) actually came around the next morning, because we lived near each other at the time, and he said, ‘Have you seen the new book? We’ve got a lot of work to do, mate.’ He was quite happy, and I didn’t know how to break it to him. So I said, ‘Have you actually read it yet, Gaz?’ ‘No, just clicked through it.’ A few days later I’m in makeup and he comes in, and sits down, and goes ‘Have you heard the news?’ ‘What’s that, Gaz?’ ‘It’s terrible fucking news.’ ‘What is it?’ ‘You know how everyone is talking about who dies in book five? It’s fucking me! This woman puts the poor bastard in prison for 12 years, brings him back for a few scenes, and then she kills him!’

heartstringcrochet:

I recently read a post about me and my work. I didn’t want anything to do with it and their negativity. But with a lot of people messaging me about the post, I had to write this person and let them know what I thought. Here’s what I had to say to them. Im showing this to let everyone know I was in…

@heartstringcrochet: I’m sorry that this happened to you, and I want to say that I (and most likely many others) fully support you.

$35 may be expensive for a stuffed animal, but I don’t think of it that way; to me, when I buy someone’s work, I am paying a premium for two things. One, I am paying for your time. You are crocheting every single stitch, and I’m guessing that could take at least a whole day for each animal. That means $35 doesn’t even equate to minimum wage.

Two, and more importantly, you pour your heart into what you do. I’ve bought your Stanley the Shark, and the quality and attention to detail you’ve placed into it tells me you take time to make sure everything you’ve made is the best you could make it. I respect that very much, and I’m more than willing to pay for that.

I’d rather pay $35 to a good artist to support them than to some huge chain toy store. And honestly, if you decide to up your pricing, I’ll still support you. I think it’s totally fair for you to, because you can’t put a price on quality.

On another note, I actually don’t mind your 8-12 week waiting period. Just like how you can’t put a price on quality, you can’t rush quality either. I think of it as, I order it now, and sometime in the future I’ll get a very pleasant surprise. I also know that you’re very good at shipping out your orders in a very timely manner, as I’ve personally experienced this.

Best of luck, and know that for every bit of negativity out there, there’s more than enough positivity and people who love what you do to make up for it.
