Lolita Valentine Drawing

I sat down today and broke out my Conte pencils and drew an entry for the February EGL banner contest. Traditional media is my forte so with that in mind I decide to stick with a realistic style. People have been complaining about the overabundance in anime entries so hopefully my entry will bring something new to the table.  

Medium: Red, black and white Conte pencils
Approximately 3 hours work time

I'll upload this to Deviantart when the contest draws nearer.

Merry Christmas

I hope that everyone had a good Christmas yesterday! I had to visit family and run around with the kids so I decided against wearing lolita but I do have an outfit from today. I used my Christmas gift cards to go shopping today and here's what I wore:
Outfit Rundown:
Cardigan and socks from Bodyline
Skirt from Fan+friend
everything else offbrand

Lolita Christmas Card Exchange

So this year I decided to join the Christmas card exchange on EGL again. I got my card in the mail today and it's very cute! It features pink with white dots and has a scalloped edge. And the glitter, I love glitter. <3

The front of the card

Inside of the card 
(such nice handwriting!)

It's hard to see on the second photo but there's a snowman next to the handwritten message and a few snow flakes at the top. 

I sent out the card for my partner today which is a couple days late ;__; but I think it should still arrive before Christmas. I hope she likes it! Since I can't wait to show it I'll share a scan I did before I sent it out.

Front of my card

I did a quick illustration with fine felt tip pen and then I punched two holes at the top of both the picture and some purple card stock. I attached the two with sheer purple ribbon tied into a bow. And on the inside I glued another piece of paper with a handwritten message. I was trying for an old fashion Christmas time cartoon but I'm not sure I achieved that. What you do guys think? I'm so excited I can't wait for her to get it!

Welcome little one!

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, there have been a lot of changes in my life since last post. And one big change is that we have a new addition to our family! I had my second son on the 7th of November and boy is he a cutie. Here's big brother helping his baby bro with his sock.

We're just now settling into a new routine and now that the semester finals are over we'll have the whole winter break to take it easy. I can't wait to share Christmas with my family and welcome him into our traditions. I'll also have some time to upload the pictures from Lolita day so expect a new post soon!

My First Post

Hello, this is my first time creating a blog so I'm just going to go with the flow. I decided to make a place that I could post all of my Lolita outfits, random doodles and current craft projects in the works. If you like cute things as much as I do you'll find that you want to fill everything in your life with cuteness and because of that you might already be surrounded in pink frilly things or adorable little characters. It's nice that such a simple thing can bring happiness. 

I hope that my future blog posts will brighten up your day!
