Old Friend Found

Recently I’ve been sorting a lot of our storage bins. Christopher’s long-lost Littlefoot has been found!

He actually has had him since he was a very little boy, and once chucked him out of the car window during a tantrum, then had an absolute meltdown at this turn of events. ๐Ÿ˜‚ One of his grandparents stopped the car to save him! Littlefoot’s been through a lot of tough love. If real life worked like The Velveteen Rabbit, he’d definitely become real.


This is Melon-Pan. I hadnโ€™t taken them out of storage in a while. Theyโ€™re one of my two Monchhichis and fairly large, can wear newborn clothes. I was talking about Monchhichis with a good friend today and it made me want to hold Melon-Pan again.

In other news, I recently had a package from Sirkus! It had a replacement for my busted mousepad, and an order of a couple wonderful new items!

That pin gives me life… still have to decide what Iโ€™m going to use it on.

Todayโ€™s โ€œdrop everything and panicโ€ moment come courtesy of my baby snails, about five of whom found a way out of their terrarium. After a moment of intensely freaking out, I managed to slip them back in through the holes. Thank goodness their shells had hardened enough to withstand this very minimal, extremely gingerly done handling.

You see, all the babies are near the top of the cheap, poorly made $5 plastic terrarium. Itโ€™s going to be hard to remove the lid without hurting them, so when I do it, itโ€™s gonna be to move them to their new, fancier terrarium. I had to find a way to get the babies back in without opening the lid. Thank goodness I managed it. I used some putty to plug the holes for now.

I am very, very tired. Lots of as arting today and lots of housework. Itโ€™s not even 11pm and Iโ€™m falling asleep as I type this.

Here is hoping tomorrow can be productive too. Goodnight everyone. ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ™

A Happy Planner Day ๐Ÿ“’๐ŸŒˆ

I was working on my planner a little today, and it looks like Iโ€™ll have to separate last years half journal into two, meaning itโ€™ll be 3 books total. Considering I use the extra large discs, this is kind of impressive. I use lots of cardstock and 3D items so itโ€™s kind of expected.

Here’s a page I decorated recently. I had so much fun with it!

Trying To Stay Cheerful ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒฅ๏ธ

Apologies, I meant to post all this yesterday but Iโ€™m still catching up. Yesterday I worked a ton on the overdue pages of my planner. I am still printing and gluing photos to it but I think Iโ€™ll be done with 2019 today!

Iโ€™ve slowly been catching up to things I wanted to accomplish, such as finishing my patch jacket, and my red overalls (and quite a few others, with more patches) as well as my journals. I watched Arthur for hours while working on it. Itโ€™s such a charming show.

I took the photo below yesterday during a bad storm. Rosie was with me for comfort (hers? mine? who knows). Rosie is missing an eye but she doesnโ€™t mind. Although she has no depth perception. Lol

Today’s Outfit ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ–โœจ

This is y favorite of the shirts I’ve acquired recently! Cera was my favorite The Land Before Time character when I was a little girl.

I really identified with her โ€”not her bully side, but rather her need to be in control and do things her way and have everyone follow her.

I remember the strange feeling it gave me seeing everyone cuddle to sleep together while Cera grumpily goes on her own, looking so haughty, only to cry herself to sleep. This broke my heart when I was little, I knew the feeling so, so well. Except when she decides to join the others she is welcome with open arms, I never really was, but I loved that scene. It gave me hope. I think a lot of people hate Cera but sheโ€™ll always be a favorite with me.

It’s My Birthday! ๐Ÿ˜Š

My friends Yookey and June sent me some birthday monies, so after all my chores are done, Iโ€™m off to the mall to shop, draw, and to get my birthday Starbucks! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•โœจ Here’s my outfit for today:

Look at my little companion for this outing!! Her name is Paprika!

Doesn’t she look adorable?

Iโ€™m off! Feeling decently cute Iโ€™ll admit. ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽˆ

Before leaving the house I ordered a massive hardcover tome of Muppet Babies comic reprints. Then my first stop was PDQ which Iโ€™d been craving for a while. I got the courage to bring Paprika out for a pic! ๐Ÿ— ๐Ÿฅ—

At the mall I got this shirt even though it was 2X (all they had left) since I need more sleep shirts anyway. I almost died when I saw it. Could have been a 3X and I would have still bought it!

I got my birthday drink at Starbucks, and a smiley strawberry cake pop, and then sat with Paprika working on commissions and listening to music. Iโ€™m felt really happy.

Thank you again everyone for the kind birthday wishes and many gifts. I most certainly feel loved! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
