Today it is incredibly hot. The truth is it would be too hot to go out pandemic or not. But because we shouldn’t go out… it makes us wish we could… Bastian hasn’t gone out since the conventions last year. 🦁💔
Snack time with Milk Tea yesterday afternoon. 🍓 🍩
The New York Times published a lovely dinosaur coloring page the other day.
I’m grateful for tonight. My lovely sis in law, my husband and myself got to spend time together in Animal Crossing and it was really fun, and touching in a way.
This game really helps us feel connected during this difficult time.
Cats are having the time of their lives on the porch. Lol. By the way, they aren’t fighting. Elliot gets dog-like “zoomies” when he is REALLY happy, and it makes Tomoyo excited and happy too, so she chases him. They’re having a lot of fun.
Good morning everyone. Another day trying my best to stay cheerful. The sample of the Dino Nuggies pattern arrived and it’s great! But it’s going to be a while until I make it available for sale. Please be patient until then.
Lots of bad cramps today so just waiting those out. Catching up on work as well. Very strange to know we really cannot leave the house now, legally, except for certain reasons. But it’s for everyone’s wellbeing.
Hope you are all coping well. Let’s keep trying our best.
Hello everyone. I hope you all had a nice day. Christopher and I had our date night yesterday, and we enjoyed playing with this I Spy book. Christopher bought it for us to play together after @maplesadventures_ reminded him of them. It was really fun!
Today, Turrón arrived, and she’s even more beautiful than I hoped!
I know, I know… too many bears recently… I won’t lie, I’ve done a fair amount of retail therapy, I feel like absolute garbage, I miss my friends, my mom, my sis in law, my mom in law. I miss the park, I miss the coffee shop and the stores I frequent on my walks. I’ve slowly managed to put out of my mind the canceled/postponed things like the musical, the Tampa trip, the cruise, and if I’m honest, very likely Megaplex as well, I mean, I can hope, but a part of me doesn’t want to hope for anything for this year. It’s less painful that way.
I’m sure I’ll regain a sense of normalcy soon, I’m very adaptable, but all of this kinda happened right when a particularly brutal PMS began, and now I’m just waiting for my cramps to come so I can have peace again, then my mood will stabilize and my headaches will go away.
I’ve had a few bad art days (I still call them that despite finishing at least one commission a day, it just doesn’t feel like enough progress). I’m the queen of “If you’re a professional you don’t wait for inspiration” and I stand by this still. But it’s been a tough couple of weeks, so if you’re waiting for stuff from me, be it personal commissions, trades or commercial work, please know it’s coming, just a tad slower than usual.
The good thing is, these slumps always precede massive output, at least for me, regardless of what caused them. So be prepared for that!
Anyway, something really wonderful about Turrón is that her ears are a little poseable! I just love her so much. I can’t wait to take my new bears on outings.
Meanwhile… sad little bears (and kittens and donkeys) just want to go outside again. 💔 From left to right, Coffee Cake, Fish ‘n Chips, Franklin, and Bizcocho.
To cheer up, I ordered mini donuts from @minidonutworld! Loved them!! Perfect PMS treat 👌 Turrón liked them too!
They were so, so cute!! 🍩💕✨🌈 And I have five left for tomorrow.
Fish ‘n Chips arrived today! I’m all out of “P” alpha beads so I’m finishing his necklace tonight when I’ve gotten some. And yes. I give my stuffies weird-ass names. 😁 His original name is Tiggs.
Took a break from commissions to play a little Animal Crossing!
