New Layout for the New Year!

1.25.2015


I have been a little busy. The new year practically triples design inquiries since people want to create  a blog, start over or change it up. So my inbox is quite the mess since some people treat emails like texting- either they suddenly drop off the face of the earth or send too many messages. A few is enough! lol

I put together this design one morning after getting inspired by this brush font.  I will forever be drawn to simple black and white layouts.  I already had most of the graphic elements done.  Probably the quickest design I'll ever do haha

The whole blog and shop will be getting an overhaul! I'll like to fix broken images or replace them with better quality ones. I was already in the process of doing it last year but there's so many things to do..

My style in design has changed since I started two years ago and I want all of my templates to reflect it. A few are currently on sale and will be removed from the shop by next month here.


I have new ad spot sizes! Large is 50% off, runs for 31 days & it's always buy 1, get the next month free. I decided to open up swaps in size 150 by 130!  My sidebar is bare.. send them in!! :D




ART: Princess Bubblegum

Princess Bubblegum art

Here's the completed piece! I did this in Sai Paint Tool. This was a random night sketch and I tried coloring it with my Copic Ciao markers but half were dying. I'm forcing myself to draw things I'm not comfortable with... like bodies and small details. Hands are the absolute worst but I figured basic shape is still good enough progress.

I am following videos on Ctrl+Paint! I already did the usual foundation stuff all the way up until composition. I rarely used Photoshop for my art but it's nice to play around with the brush settings, mixing colors and blending now.

I'll like to get a scanner later in the future.  It would be great to have decent lighting and quality for  traditional pieces.  Most of my work is done at night haha

I've been sick for a few days and just when it feels like it's about gone. Nope. I am hoping to skip the terrible lingering cough and be done with sickness for the whole year.

Have a great Tuesday!~

Black Silver Ombre hair

1.13.2015
It felt like Winter for maybe less than a week and now this burning sun is overpowering whatever cool breeze we have. That's California for you.  This is barely an outfit post. I wanted to show off my new wig and just take pictures while it's still bright out.

I always buy my wigs from Ebay. This one was the most expensive one just under $25. It claimed to have a lace closure and no, it was pretty horrible.  There was this thick chunk of white flesh at the front and it looked so fake. I sewed it underneath instead of cutting it off. Other than that it looks great!

I like how I don't need to conceal all of my hair since my roots just blend in with this.  It's tempting to bleach my hair and throw in some color but I'm going to really refrain from it. I'll settle the urge by wearing wigs. I have a few more that haven't been on the blog before :D


I finally knitted a Sailor Moon hat. It's currently just a prototype and I'll be making a different bow for it. I'm working on a second one right now trying to come up with the perfect fit!  I got my yarn organized in storage boxes after many months and it's all easy access now. I'll share pictures for another post.

Happy Tuesday!  New Girl is on tonight and I saw on Twitter that Zooey Deschanel is pregnant! :D

Halfway through making the head, you start stuffing it and placing in your safety eyes. Make sure that it's in the spot you want then cut out a small square of yellow felt. Carefully cut out the crescent moon shape. It's best to cut less first and put it against the head to get the sizing. Once you like the size then I really recommend you use the piece to trace out a second one if you plan to make both!

I managed to get more felt so I'll probably remake Luna with lighter felt.

A Year Of Fashion

1.03.2015
This was nearly all of my outfits from 2014! It's basically the evolution of my hair and my love for Ion Brights dye haha. I definitely hit my goal of dressing up more but it did slow down after summer. I'll like to keep it up, of course!







I realize that some of you may not be into following me anymore because of my inactivity lately or the lack of my bright long hair. It happens! ✌  I've never really considered this space to be strictly for posting fashion/hair.. it's just something I became interested in more during last year.

This was always my blog to share my work and that's what I'll like to do it again. I thought I needed to get things done first but the timing won't ever be right. Rather start it now and make the progress.. than continuing on looking back waiting for tomorrow.

I can't say I'll always share a new pattern each month but I'm hoping it'll be a somewhat regular thing haha. The next one coming up very soon will be amigurumi dolls of Luna and Artemis from Sailor Moon. Holidays happened and got way too busy to type up the pattern or make a PDF. :(
