Funny story, long ago I redesigned my Live Journal (back when Live Journal was a thing) with a McDonalds theme. At the time there was also a guy who was infamous for trashing other people’s work on his own blog to their own horror.
Well, my McDonalds blog was certainly featured front and center. However, I was honored. Most of the things I post online are in sarcasm anyway, if you know me, so the press was simply appreciated.
I realized today that I haven’t updated here with any of my newer products so this post is a shameless spill of pins and tees.
Also, side note, would anyone like it if I made and posted original phone wallpapers like the old days?
Guess what? Nintendo just released an Animal Crossing Calendar on their My Nintendo loyalty program!
The super cute digital download is an Animal Crossing 2020 calendar to print. You can sign into My Nintendo to redeem your points and celebrate the birthdays of your favorite characters from your Animal Crossing town.
Unfortunately, this download is locked by My Nintendo and only available for redeem and download if you have a Nintendo account registered in the United States.
But don’t worry if it’s not available for you, we got it for you.
You may wonder if the calendar could hint about which villagers we might find in our Animal Crossing: New Horizons towns. This calendar, however, is Animal Crossing themed and not specific to New Horizons, so who knows!
The Animal Crossing team has done it again. I always seem to get sucked into the game but none so much as the original for the Game Cube and the previous DS version, Wild World. I played with my best friend, Kimi side by side and we obsessively tried to experience and own every cute thing available. New Leaf has added to the obsession with a much smoother ability to play with friends on and offline and user-created content which is always a win when done well. I got really excited when I saw PRO DESIGN and could design all tiles of an outfit. WOW. I instantly made a bunny lolita dress in pink and mint. The color selection is also a win.
How do you unlock the QR code reader you ask? You talk to the sewing sister at Able Sisters everyday, Mable for about 6 days and it should be unlocked. With this unlocks endless possibilities of sharing user-created content of your hearts desire. All pixel artists should jump at this new feature– I know I did. I’m still a little too excited. I was getting flustered seeing all the new content in game and trying to get a bigger home for the cuteness. Now I’ve found this code and way later you can even customize items in the game upon selling and buying tons with Resale. WOOT.
Enjoy some cute finds I located around the web and enjoy the New Leaf. So far I give it a 5-star rating~ xx!
So I’ve been sketching so much more since I began living with the man of my dreams and realizing life can be comforting in transition, fear, sadness, happiness, ecstasy, extreme business, security, and overwhelming tasks lists. Sometimes those sketches are finally turned into illustrations by yours truly and other times they are filed, colored by the kiddies or lost and tossed. This one made it through to the other side. I was feeling very dark when I sketched this but also very excited about the future, thus she is split into two. Even more curious I died my hair half and half following this drawing. The dark vs cute seems to be a constant theme in my brain.
I’ve also updated my SHOP a bit and fallen in love with some old and new friends also using storenvy.
I’ve also got my digital life getting back on track with the welcome of a new computer to the office, my new lovely laptop (little MacBook Pro) which was a gift from Mistereducated. It is so happy to both work with me and snuggle in my still-in-the-plastic Lamb case that was gifted to me years ago. Such a princess of a laptop. She runs runs runs and keeps my eyes happy with a screen that is so decadent and color rich like a Japanese candy store. AH! I was so behind.
Also many more blog goodies are coming along.. I was forced by slight-OCD to organize my Gmail via Imap in Mac’s Mail app (if you need any help with this I have ultimate tips as I ripped quite a few hairs out in frustration). I had (no joke) a bit over 100,000 mails that needed to be organized into folders so I could have an empty inbox and get on track. I was living like a computer file hoarder. Mister even got me an external hard drive because like a hoarder I put off organizing my files and deleting un-needed files for so long and now every file I’ve ever cherished (except for that time in the 90s when my old PC crashed and lost all my files) is organized and neat on the hard drive. Such a relief! Everything is smooth sailing on candy seas. So alas, I have not forgotten about or misplaced your emails! After my crazy roller coaster ride and life restart I am still getting important items in order but I am now pretty much on top of a cotton candy cloud ready to welcome you for chats, cats and tea. I never forgot about you, I was only lost in the forest for awhile.
Also — I got a pink 3ds for a bit of fun in the meantime and mainly for Animal Crossing because it has always been my favorite game next to Maniac Mansion. If you’d like to be friends just leave your friend code. Mine is: 0662 4261 5265
Give me something cute to do and I’m usually pleased, however lately it’s been quite a bit tougher to please myself with anything (winter blues?)! I’ve never found myself to be much of a Facebook user, my social network of choice is Flickr, however Playfish has released an adorably addictive game for me and my friends to get lost in and forget about our worries for a moment or two! Pet Society. This is a Facebook application like no other, it’s an entire world embedded into the site — don’t roll your eyes assuming you’re finding another useless gift application, that’s just not what it is at all!
What is it?
It’s almost like a mixture of all of the best silly, animal games we all love and adore! Postpet, Animal Crossing, even a bit like a Tamagotchi or virtual pet. You get a pet (your design) and although there seems to be a simple selection of designs, I find everyone who plays is creative and all the pets I see look totally unique!
The fun doesn’t stop there! Once you design your virtual pet you can save up gold and decorate your home however you like. Live your pack rat life through this and save your home shelves some space. It seems everyone is collecting something and decorating their house to be the best you can visit. Feeling lonely? Leave a friend a gift or a message and they’re likely to respond. You can even go to the cafe if you have no friends and find some new pets to visit. If you happen to visit, give them a hug, have a dance or write a note for them to see. Passing along happiness is as easy as 1-2-3!
