Crafts – Embroidery, Cross-Stitch, & More

I added bead flowers to my necklace.

I made a blue rose out of paper felt. This was part of an explosion box, and it was probably the best thing I’ve made.

I embroidered a flower and a coffee bean on a tote bag. I also embroidered a strawberry and matcha ice cream to the tote. They’re done freely, and they’re symbolic of my days.

I sewed tulips on my handkerchief.

I cross-stitched a four-leaf clover.

I used watercolor on a book. I deliberately chose a book I got at a thrift store because I wasn’t sure how it would go, and I kind of like the outcome.

I loved the pumpkins we carved for Halloween, so I made miniature versions of them out of air dry clay.

Changes to the Blog & New Twitter!

I’m participating in a graphic design workshop hosted by Jon Spencer Reviews. I made a new blog header and graphic for my About page and I’m pleased with the final results!

I have to thank Jon because I wouldn’t have done this if it weren’t for the workshop and all the support from fellow blogger friends!

These feel more personal – not just because I created them but also because I used my drawings.



The next task is for your partner to create you a Twitter post. I thought about it and made a Twitter account. If you’ve known me long enough, you probably know that I was super active on Twitter a few years ago. I wasn’t very happy on there at the time so I left. I think I will primarily use this new account to tweet about anime and share my blog posts. I think this move will also help me feel more connected with my online friends (especially with COVID right now and because I graduated university).

My username is @melo__nsoda (two underscores, the same as my personal Instagram).

Air dry clay – Gomu Gomu no Mi

I attended a virtual workshop hosted by my university’s anime club. These are my first two creations.

Let me know what I should make next!
