Last Bits Of Birthday Stuff (Part #1) ๐ŸŽโœจ

My last bit of birthday stuff (mostly Amazon gift card stuff) is arriving today and some arrived yesterday! I really ended up spoiled beyond belief… I will say that, considering that luxuries such as these are gonna go out of the window starting in August, Iโ€™m so glad that I have so much stuff to have fun with for a long while.

๐Ÿฃ Littlespace Stuff ๐Ÿฃ

First is this Bingo night light! Iโ€™m going to enjoy looking at it every day on my desk while I work:

Here she is all lit up! You can’t turn the light off –it goes off by itself after a few minutes.

Here are some more vintage unopened trading cards. Canโ€™t wait to open these during Littlespace and then scrapbooking with them!

These things can be really hit or miss though. Sometimes I get a lot of “puzzle piece” type cards…

Next –more stickers!! Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid and Crayon Shin-Chan this time. ๐Ÿ‘€

Then there’s another book for scrapbooking art into my journal. I have one more of these coming later today.

๐ŸŒˆ Other Cool Things ๐ŸŒˆ

I had a lot of these books on my wish list and was really glad to get at least one. Itโ€™s absolutely fantastic! If youโ€™re a writer I highly recommend it.

The way it works is, you look up an emotion, and for each emotion you get a wealth of expressions that you can use to express that particular state of mind. It’s just so cool.

Finally โ€”this wasnโ€™t a birthday present. I preordered this AGES agoโ€ฆ it finally came today. (*๏ฟฃโˆ€๏ฟฃ) โœจ

I really did buy a lot of crap before things went south recentlyโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜… and other than Grandmaโ€™s check (which I saved) I pretty much spent all birthday money right away, tooโ€ฆ I wanna make sure it is clear no donation money went to any of this junk. It was either purchased before or with gift cards/money given to myself with the caveat that it was to be used for birthday treats.

Also. I think you all know this, BUTโ€ฆ my spending sprees often coincide with depression. Especially if itโ€™s my Little side that is hit. ๐Ÿ˜“ You can often tell Iโ€™m depressed even if Iโ€™m seemingly super happy by how much s**t I buy in a given period of time, even if I seem super happy in my posts.

With that said, it definitely wonโ€™t be possible going forward for a while, so Iโ€™ll have to find a different coping mechanism. ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ฆ Thankfully, I have a lot to entertain myselfโ€ฆ and the Zoom meeting with other Littles did me tremendous good too!

To be clear, no one has given me a hard time about this at allโ€ฆ but I worry about perception, so I wanted to set that straight.

I think that’s all for this post. I’m working really hard. Things are still fairly stressful at home, but taking time every few days to be Little is doing wonders for my mental health. I hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

A “Little” Breather ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐ŸŒˆ

Today I finished my 100 Days Of Warm-Ups project! Well, it ended up being 103. Before I start to work again, I needed to reset, so I decided to have some Little time. Of course, that means scrapbooking and cartoons!

I had Bluey with me. I offered to share my snack but she didn’t want any.

Cartoon choices were (of course) Bluey and Crayon Shin-Chan.

The episode I started with, in which Shin Chan meets the โ€œreal lifeโ€ Action Mask, is SO adorable. Shin Chan may be the Japanese “Dennis The Menace” but he is far more childlike and genuine, and as a result, he can be so cute sometimes.

For a show with so much sexual innuendo and such jokes, it has huge heart. I’ve noticed that when shows like these add bits of emotion, it gets to me something crazy. Like when Shin Chan sends his important letter and it’s to Misae to thank her for all she does. It was played for laughs, but I teared up. Or when he finds Shiro. I’ve teared up watching this show at least three times and I’m still on season one. ๐Ÿ˜…

At some point I’m going to start going in between this and Doraemon because I have a lot of episodes to get through.

Anyway!! Have a look at my tape collection!

I’ve got all kinds… Washi, fabric, duck brand tape… they’re a lot of fun. I also have some huge duck brand tape rolls with really cute designs but of course those don’t fit in this box.

The last thing I’ve got to share is my new Bluey shirt. Can you tell I got a new special interest? Oops. Haha…

That’s it for tonight I guess! It’s time to clean the snail tank and then start dinner. I’m making chicken tonight. ๐Ÿ”
