Otome collection continues to grow! 💕✨
Commission progress continues! It may seem a bit slow because most of my current pieces (like, the next four) are highly detailed. But a lot of progress is happening every day.
I took this photo of Christopher napping with Kotoko when he stayed home with COVID recently. She’s glaring at me kind of protectively… 😸
Another thing that was waiting in the mail when we returned was this lovely little bookplate from Riley Black! I affixed it to my copy of The Last Days of the Dinosaurs immediately!
Here’s a close up! 🦖🌈
I would like to share the goodies I got on my trip! I’ll start with the fanciest thing I got which was this beautiful Alaska bag! I got it in Juneau. It’s big!
I also got this super cute Hello Kitty coloring book from a lovely anime store in Seattle!
One of the things I got at the Space Needle was maybe a pencil case? Or a Switch Lite case? But, I am keeping it for my upcoming Analogue Pocket later this year.
Here’s a pretty glass trivet I got in Alaska. I’ve been using it every day since we got home!
Space Needle rainbow mug! I got it as a pencil holder, because it can’t even be put in the microwave (what’s up with that??)
Lots of random Alaska goodies! Many bear themed things, Taku Glacier Lodge stuff, and though you can’t see it very well, a little pin of a bear riding a salmon that our partner picked for me.
Close-up of the pin, along with a coin and some other items…
Postcards, greeting cards, and stickers for scrapbooking! Both from Canada and Alaska. And one of my favorite things from the entire trip: Mr. DNA’s Book Of Dinosaurs, which was a complete surprise from our partner while at Pike Place Market. I really treasure it!
More Space Needle goodies, and also some Canada ones! There’s an Alaska sticker there too.
A couple of Norwegian Encore goodies and an Canadian wildlife keychain!
I’m really happy with the two NCL Encore souvenirs I got. This Christmas ornament is shaped exactly like our ship!
Finally here is a close-up of this medallion. I thought it was really neat.
