New year, new other stuff.

It’s only been five days into 2016, and my brain already feels burnt out. I go through ups and downs a lot, and during my downs, all I want to do is turn on one of my favorite youtubers and listen to their vlog style videos as a playlist while I crochet, color, or dress my dolls. Now, I’m adding journaling to the activity list!

Jann from Project Dollhouse introduced me to the wonderfully colorful and cute world of journaling, planners, and stationary. I needed a new planner for 2016, and I wanted an upgrade from the MUJI planner I had been using for 2015.

With Jann’s help, I settled on the Hobonichi Techo (^^ Hobonichi 2016! The above are stock photos, because I am not a journaling wizard – LOOK HOW CUTE). The Hobonichi Techo has so much potential. Also, maybe if I doodle in it for the whole year, my drawing skillz will be much improved XD.IMG_5792.JPGI doodled on today’s daily page (if you look closely at the rainbow portion on top, there’s some ink transfer from the page across from it D:. I decided to draw over it, instead of write over it). It’s a portrait of Finley ^^. I was surprised by how relaxing it was to fill in today’s page. IMG_5791.jpgI also wanted to share some more shawls I made with the crochet thread I have! I’ve fine-tuned the pattern for the shawl, so now it’s a proper shawl (a triangle shape, instead of an odd trapezoid). I like how delicate things made with crochet thread are, but I’m not the biggest fan of working with tiny hooks and what is basically string :-/ . These two shawls are listed on my etsy store (and there’s also a coupon code “Blythenewyear” for 15% off at the moment). I’m still slowly working through my giant plastic tub of yarn, but I’m running out of ideas on what to make.

On a side note, looking at my dolly shelf now, I’m pretty happy with the girls I have. 😄 I’m not sure if this is denial, because I’m trying really hard not to expand my collection in the year of 2016 (minus the preordered girl in February). All I need is a wig for Marshall Lee, that I’ve been putting off making for months.
