also i went to the dentist today to get my last filling done, i was in and out in 10 minutes and yet it cost me over one hundred dollars

i’m trying to make caramelized onions and at first i regretted it because the onion smell was so much

but now, 30 minutes in, it smells GLORIOUS, THIS IS THE BEST CHOICE I’VE EVER MADE


Lolitas, does anyone have any suggestions for petticoats that give subtle poof?

I currently have one from Classical Puppets (too poofy!) and one from Bodyline (not poofy enough!) and I’m looking for something in between those…

I’ve thought about buying another Bodyline one and layering them, but I want this for daily wear and I don’t find layering petticoats very comfortable after a few hours.

Let me know if you have any suggestions!!! n__n


Wren Day

gouache & watercolor on paper

(I couldn’t decide which colors I liked best — the blue is a photoshopped alternate version, and the gold is closer to the original painting.)

My piece for the Animystics show at Light Grey Art Lab, opening this Friday! The show is all about the spiritual and mystical ideas associated with different animals, and I chose to illustrate the Wren because of its place in druid lore and celtic mythology.

In one tale, the wren won the title of King of Birds when he hid unnoticed under the feathers of an eagle in a race, and flew ahead at the last second. Ancient druid rituals involved sacrificing a wren at midwinter, and the tradition was carried on into Christian times, with “wrenboys” catching a wren on St Stephen’s Day, tying it to a decorated pole, and marching from door to door in the village wearing costumes made of straw, asking for donations.

My piece was inspired by the St Stephen’s Day (or Wren Day) tradition, which I first learned about from a lovely little song called Wren in the Furze, which you can (and definitely should) listen to here.

Lani, what do you like knitting and what type of yarn do you use?

Most of the projects that I’ve completed have been scarves, and have been gifts for other people. Funnily enough, I HATE knitting scarves, haha. I really enjoyed making my Mr. Fox scarf though because there was so much variety in the pattern and the end result was so cute :)

As for yarn, it’s kind of funny - my mom is a VERY avid knitter and she collects yarn almost obsessively. She travels a lot and buys yarn from wherever she goes without any projects in mind. So usually she lets me choose yarn from her stash! It’s  like an entire dresser and small bookshelf filled with yarn. But I don’t really have a preference because I just use what I’m allowed to take… hahahaha. I really like the brand Malabrigo though, their yarns are really nice to knit with.

Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers. Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity! (✿◠‿◠)
