Unicorn Chaser ๐Ÿฆ„ ๐Ÿ’จ

Letโ€™s like… just… talk about other stuff for a while, yeah? I can only take this other stuff for so long. So let me share a few happy things.

The other day I went to the craft store and got some ribbon and beads and fabric and similar things. I’ve been determined to make some of my newer (and older, neglected) stuffies their own bandanas and name necklaces.

Here is Raisin, holding the haul and eagerly awaiting his own goodies to be made:

The fabric bundle was really cute:

One of the older stuffies who got pimped out is Frito. Frito has survived several purges and sat in my “donation” pile three times. I can never bear to let him go. After he survived the third purge, I decided it was time to make him a name necklace and dress him up:

Frito is actually a very funny and expressive Folkmanis puppet.

Churrasco also got a name necklace, finally:

And my new stuffed little t-rex, now named Gao, got a name necklace and a bandana that I made for him myself:

Beanie got kind of revamped. He gave up his massive rainbow bow for an oversized sweater, cute bandana and new ribbon:

Along with veteran Franklin, Beanie will be coming along with me on the upcoming New England trip.

It is indeed very rare for me to travel with two bears (a first) as well as Franklin’s first trip in many years. Franklin is basically retired these days. However, we will be going to the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory where Franklin was born –I cannot visit that place with anyone but Franklin.

And then of course there is Raisin. He’s very happy with his new getup:

Everyone will be getting hats soon. I got them from AliExpress so that will take a few weeks to arrive.

I have other stuffies who have gotten a bandana here or a ribbon there but these are the most significant changes.

I also made a little cover for my laminator which always gets dusty:

And that’s it. Just some happy stuff to chase away some of these clouds. I’m gonna get some chores done and then work on another commission.

Weekend Recap! ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฅ

Hullo everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your long weekend as I am. I’m having quite a busy one (as usual) though, I did manage to sneak in more reading time than normal. I’m trying to make my way through the Bears Of The Ice series but it really is kind of a drag. After that I’ll reward myself with one of my dinosaur books, though.

Last Friday Christopher drove me to the local Asian mart so I was able to get some goodies I hadn’t had in a while!

Not everything is pictured (the best part were the many special breads, such as melon-pan, strawberry moon-cakes, red bean paste rolls, and such, as well as a new coffee that I really enjoyed) but above you can see some rice crackers, furikake of several flavors, giant Caplico “ice creams”, mayo flavored ramen, a milk candy that was hard as rock and I hard to trash (cries) and a really delicious peanut ball snack. They are peanuts covered by a baked shell that is sort of sweet but not too much. They’re really good.

I also got some cutlery, sometimes they have really cute things:

Over the weekend we went to IKEA as Billys were finally in stock again. So I worked on the guest room, putting the collectibles I still have left in display along with Christopher’s Lilo & Stitch stuff. I really got rid of so, so many things I loved… it’s a little heartbreaking. But in the end I am very glad I kept the things I did keep. I still need to put some pictures on the walls, and I want to buy a small chair and two nightstand lamps, but otherwise it is done:

I can’t wait for our friends to enjoy this room when they stay over.

Kotoko was quite excited as I worked on the room and kept running around between things and between my legs, until she found the comforter on the floor and made a nest in it:

I was able to snap some extremely cute video of Rosemary over the weekend, just being happy and silly:

Tonight I made breaded chicken cutlets with salad and avocado for dinner. Afterwards for dessert Christopher had chocolate ice cream and I enjoyed some espresso with one of my Caplicos:

And that is it for the weekend. I’m so happy that Christopher will be home tomorrow. Perhaps we will watch a movie. Goodnight, everyone!

A Weekend Full Of Little Feels ๐ŸŒˆโœจ

Today, in things you probably shouldn’t put inside your body… a “sno ball”:

Well, it’s a snowball cake. It’s made by TastyKake. Even when I’m not dieting, I don’t really eat things like these… you know, ding-dongs, twinkies, they’re just horrible, horrible for you. But once in a rare while, like maybe one every two years sorta while… I’ll have one. This one was truly incredibly good:

After enjoying that little snack with some more Cafรฉ Enchantรฉ playtime, I made a new bead necklace with some stuff I had lying around:

This weekend has been full of Little feels. In between playing with Christopher with a ridiculous amount of wooden trains, and looking for worms in the yard with my little shovel, wearing my shortalls and mac ‘n cheese ODU onesie, I really was able to be in the moment and not feel awkward of self conscious in my Little self for the first time in a long time.

When it comes to like, legit playing with toys, my adult self is always too present. I’ve tried to play with other Littles but it’s hard to let myself go. I think when playing with the trains is the most comfortable I’ve ever felt.

Unfortunately it all presents a huge temptation to buy ALL THE TRAIN THINGS. So my Internet blocks are going into full effect again soon (I’ve been more than a bit lax with them.) I allowed myself to make an Amazon list, with train and block town stuff (since they work so well together) but by far my favorite stuff is BigJigs’ dino themed sets:

The list is here if you want to see the entire pile of nonsense. ๐Ÿ˜…

New Onesies! ๐ŸŒˆโœจ๐Ÿงธ

I’ve had this in my drafts for a little bit because the ABC onesie hadn’t been publicly announced at the time I received my sample but now I can show it off!

The Royal Ribbits one also came in. I am really happy with how both of these designs turned out. The ABC one in particular was a TON of work even though only a few letters were done.

In addition to the samples I received, I ordered the Dino Dreams onesie because it’s so different color-wise from most of the onesies/bodysuits in my wardrobe. And also, dinos.

These days I am incredibly picky with my onesies because I have accumulated so many. I also haven’t felt much like dressing Little recently. Hopefully that will change later this year.

This Weekโ€™s Little Finds ๐Ÿฃ ๐Ÿญ

I went grocery shopping today. Kimchi Mart and Publix. I found some really cute Little snacks at Kimchi Mart as usual. At Publix, I scored a lovely Little plate that looks just like a board game! The Sesame Street bibs are for my bears.

Hereโ€™s a close-up of the plate. Itโ€™s really cute:

In sadder news… yet another snail died. I have two snails of my original group left, plus the three milk snails (this is referring to the mite-affected snails; I have plenty of healthy snails in other containers.)

The milk snails have been mating. Even if they too pass away, if only I could get eggs from them, it would ease the pain of losing so many.

Still โ€”overall it has not been a bad day. Iโ€™m hoping for a productive weekend. Goodnight, everyone.

Scribble Trade ๐Ÿ–๏ธ Maeflower

Little Finds ๐Ÿงธ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’•

Here is my little share for today, some goodies from the local Asian market! ๐Ÿงธ๐ŸŒˆ ๐ŸŒŸ

I got a little cup which will be perfect for my wine since Iโ€ฆ keep breaking my glassesโ€ฆ and a little pouch that Iโ€™m 99% sure is for kid sized chopsticks but will be so great for my Apple Pencil, since you know, I take it LOTS of places these daysโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ™„

Anyway this cheered me up today so I wanted to share!

Made Necklaces Today! ๐Ÿงธ

Today I finally made necklaces for all my stuffies that donโ€™t have them! It was nice to have Little time for a change.

I made one for Sugar Lump, though I Littlespaceโ€™d too hard and the S is facing the wrong way… ๐Ÿ˜… I may fix it later.

And I made one for Apple Juice:

The others are for stuffies I donโ€™t have yet. Well, Toby is here but he is in a box that I canโ€™t open until my birthday. This is his entire outfit including necklace:

Then I made one for my Jellycat worm, Ramen Noodle. Itโ€™s probably too big for him, but Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ll figure something out.

Finally, not pictured but I made two more, for my Jellycat squirrel Circo and my Anniversary Shades Charlie Bear, whom Iโ€™ll be calling Anise. Iโ€™ve also put together outfits for them all. I should have Anise this weekend, not sure about the Jellycats since they come from the UK.

Thatโ€™s all for now! Time to clean up…
