Some Pages From My Kiddy Scrapbook ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ“—โœจ

This is a rare week in which Christopher is coming home early enough to spend time together every day. So every evening we do just that. He plays a game, and I watch him play while scrapbooking. Right now he’s playing Skyward Sword.

Hereโ€™s my scrapbooking progress:

Itโ€™s basically another version of my blog, but with a much โ€œsmallerโ€ voice, since itโ€™s my “kiddy journal” as I call it. Since this “inner child voice” is a bit of a private thing for me, I prefer to show the pages before I write on them. It is something very therapeutic for me.

During the day, I flatten it under heavy things as much as possible forโ€ฆ obvious reasons… ๐Ÿ˜…

Also, during the last Iso Storytime I finished my coloring page! Then I laminated and put stickers on it. Squirrelโ€™s getting ready for fallโ€ฆ I feel very ready too! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŽƒ

Speaking of squirrels… look at this cute little squirrel decoration I saw at Michaels:

I couldnโ€™t buy himโ€ฆ buying things is done for nowโ€ฆ but I did take a picture! ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ‚

Choo choo! Lookit Us Go! ๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ’จ

We’re all going on a fancy ride! ๐Ÿš‚ This quite overdue piece was commissioned by my very dear friend Snow, who not only bought a slot to let me draw whatever I wanted for the purpose of buying my husband Christopher (Subrosian) a bunch of toy trains, but also let me include Christopher, myself, and my old friends: fellow train lover Tavi and little Ozzie with his socky –hadn’t drawn them in soooo long! I gave this piece my all, including Snow’s Ember and my Ricky as well. Used a 3D model as a base for the train, I think it turned out alright. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Drawing Tavi and Ozzie filled me with nostalgia. ๐Ÿฅบ In my early, rose-colored-glasses fandom days I drew them a lot, back when comms didn’t take my every waking moment. We don’t talk as much these days but they will always be my “li’l bros”.
