Furry Migration || Saturday

(Sign from the pub down the street from the con center)

First of all, Iron Artist!
So they had three judges and three final pieces to pick from. What happened?
The judges couldn't decided on just one so all three won the contest.

What does that mean for me?
I got a free badge for entree next year at the con, and I will be on the committee to help design and make the new character for the convention.

Here was my character design I made:

On to another note.

Random Acts of Kindness || School Suppiles

At Supernatural Con this weekend they had a table in the dealers room for Misha's charity; They were asking con goers to make journal covers for kids in elementary students and write something inspiring in the back cover.

I was super excited about this and made one.


And this was what I put in the back cover. I hope it makes someone smile and remember they can do it if they believe.

Art Trade: Mom

My mom is a fantastic artist and we started to send mail to each other again.

She used to send me stuff all the time but since she moved into our town back from AZ we stopped writing.

We decided to start back up again and send letters and art to each other. She wants to include my sisters in on it but we will see if they want to. (:


Out going mail:

Excited,
Aika

Last couple days in my Journal





I hope you guys enjoy seeing what's inside my bullet journal as much as I enjoy sharing it with you all. :3

Handmade Dori

I always wanted an Midori Travel Journal but they are just so expensive.

So today my grandma and I went to Jo-Ann's and got some fabric so I could make my own. With a little help picking the fabric and how to see it up I finally have a midori style journal.


Yes I used fur lol why not. I like being different.


It can hold two journal inserts currently.
Not sure if I would call it 100% complete just yet. But so far I like it. :)

And thanks for helping me today grandma! <3
