So, instead of doing something DIY for once, the other week I bought this awesome Witcher shirt from Grindstore. The colors and motif really spoke to me. Not only is the game damn great, the shirt is really epic looking. The quality is way better than I thought it would be and the shipping didn’t take to long. I’ll absolutely order more from that store in the future.
So, yet another year gone past, and I suppose a lot has happened. Should I be cliché and say how horrible this year has been, like everyone else? With terrible new presidents and all them famous people dying?
Nah, actually this has been a really good year, for me at least. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and other things. I’ve realized that some things aren’t worth caring about at all, while other things are vital to even feel good.
Recently I’ve also realized that I’ve had to many things on my plate. I’ve always had the notion that when I play a game, I need to stick to it and finish it before continuing onto the next. However, that is not the same notion that I’ve had with other things. For example, I have way too many hobbies. Whenever I find something new and fun, I move onto that even though I just started a new project with something else.
So, my big promise for the new year is to stick to things I’ve started and finish it before anything else. What’s yours?
So, yet another Christmas Eve filled with tasty food, candy and presents.
It’s a really nice feeling to realize that you actually have such good friends around you. Now, this is a thing I often realize, but I suppose in times like Christmas, even if you don’t believe in what it stands for and maybe only wants the food, I think about it a bit more.
Christmas is, even if only for the company, food and cuddles, a really cozy time. All the lights, the good food, cozy moods and presents, I always enjoy it.
I hope you had/will have a great Christmas as well.
Merry Christmas to you all!
So, here I am, a little over 5 years later since I started my blog, and just got my 100th follower. When I started this, I never believed that anyone would read anything here, let alone follow me.
I started out this year by being so thankful to all the things I had going for myself, and now as the year is almost over, I’m amazed over how fast one person can change. I’m not at all how I was when I started this year. This might all sound so cheesy and weird, but with each event or thing you learn, you grow.
My writing is still evolving faster than I manage to finish a short story, or at least it feels that way. New games still manage to keep my attention, despite the fact that games truly is going downhills nowadays. Also, tossing makeup out the window, never to return to my apartment again, is the best thing I have ever done.
A really big thanks to all of you who follows me. I really appreciate it.
So, the other day I really wanted to do something with beads. I wanted something fun to decorate my apartment with, so I tried my hand at this Piranha Plant. Maybe you’ll recognize it from the Mario games.
It turned out pretty nice, and I will probably try my hand at a few more of these later on as well. Maybe even combining it with my 3Doodler, hopefully it’ll be a great mix.
So, for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend gave me a 3Doodler. A 3Doodler is a 3D pen that enables you to paint outside the box, so to say. You use plastic sticks in a thing shaped like a pen, and it lets you paint in, well… 3D. It’s so impressive to be able to paint straight up in the air from your paper and it stays there. I love it.
I have been using it a little bit after I got it, but I figured that I should really try to do something. It is way fun to use, and only your creativity is the limit. The plastic comes in all different colors, transparency and bendability.
It is a bit tricky to get used to but not before long, I figured out what to do as my first “big” project. A candle holder. I doodled the sides and the bottom before gluing them all together. The gluing part was actually harder to get right than the doodling itself.
Not before long, the glue had dried and my candle holder is ready for use. One side holds a Triforce (from The Legend of Zelda) that gives of a really nice silhouette on the wall, and on the other side there’s a leaf that does the same.
Have you ever tried a 3Doodler yourself? Did you love it as much as I do?
So, I’ve had this empty spot on the wall in my bedroom for a while now and figured I really needed to get off my ass and do something about it. I needed something to hang all my pieces and necklaces on so they wouldn’t just lie in one messy pile.
I needed something to hang, and it needed to be rather large. Like a picture frame, just not with a picture in it. So, why not take a frame, add something to it so I can hand things from it and then place it on the wall? I bought everything I needed, tweaked it together and then I could finally fill my wall space.
My Game Boy necklaces, crystals and bracelets hangs there beautifully.
What do you think? Have you done anything like this yourself?
