My Quarantine Essentials

I have to admit, since the stay in place/quarantine directives came down ~18 weeks ago, I haven’t been feeling very creative. I started a sketch of my “quarantine essentials” about 2 weeks into stay at home, and it’s taken me this long to finish them.

Nintendo Switch: I’ve been playing Animal Crossing like crazy. Remember how I said I wasn’t being creative? A friend of mine told me I was being creative, just in a different way. I’m loving creating custom clothes and terraforming my island! I also recently started Mario Odyssey for the first time, and it’s soooo good.

Toilet paper: AKA the new currency. We stocked up months ago but have only seen it in stores a few more times. YIKES!

PS4: Ok, I admit the only game I’ve been “playing” on PS4 is Just Dance. It’s keeping me active…and sane!

Gaming headphones: Thank goodness for game nights of Overwatch with friends.

Ice cream: Need I say more?

Wine: Need I say more?

I want to know – what have you been doing to keep busy and sane during this time? Is anyone else playing Animal Crossing?

Also this is just your friendly reminder – just because something *is* open, doesn’t mean you *should* go. And please be sure you’re wearing your mask and social distancing!

Animal Crossing Fruit Popsicles

Raise your hand if you’ve been using Animal Crossings New Horizons as a coping mechanism to get through these past few months… *raises hand*

I’ve been playing a LOT of ACNH, and some of my favorite outfits are all of the fruits dresses. So naturally, I decided to turn them into popsicles!

Shop | Zodiac Collection

Hi all! Today I wanted to share a project of mine that I’ve been sitting on since…well, about 2016. It’s a Zodiac illustration project! I meant to have this up in time for Christmas shopping, but…well I went to London so I didn’t have time :) But these items make for great gifts any time of the year!

I’ve made all of these into products on Redbubble if you’re interested in any gift ideas. Whenever I wear my Taurus shirt, I always get compliments and I’ve met many other Taurus’ that way :)

Lumos vs. Nox

Today is Harry Potter’s birthday! In honor of the day I thought I’d post some of my latest Harry Potter doodles, Lumos and Nox. These might be two of the most classic spells, and are extremely handy. In fact, Lumos is my personal favorite spell in the whole HP universe!

This got me thinking – which spell do you prefer? Lumos or Nox? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Unicorn Day!

I just wanted to drop in and say I’m still alive!! The PAX cosplay crush, well…crushed me. BUT I don’t have any upcoming costume projects so I’m excited to explore new craft and blog ideas!

In the meantime, did you know today is National Unicorn Day? I didn’t. But it coincides perfectly with Netflix’s new movie Unicorn Store, which I just watched this weekend. Have you seen it? I loved the story that you don’t have to “grow up” once you become an adult.
