First of all, I want to show you Uprooted by Naomi Novik. It’s … Continue reading

Tag: The Bookshelf Tag

Hi there :) A few days ago, I saw this tag over at Twist in the Taile, and since I’m still sad about the fact that I’ll have to part with my darling shelves soon….well, I just thought I should do the most I can before it’s all over. I believe this tag was first … Continue reading

It’s a Sad Sad Situation…

It’s a Sad Sad Situation…

I realised something a few days ago. Something quite sad. Are you ready? I’m gonna say it now… When I move in less than a month, I’ll have to say goodbye to my bookshelves as I currently know them.  I know…sad, right?  Thing is, due to where I’ll be living, I probably won’t be able … Continue reading

Why So Sirius?

Why So Sirius?

New drawing alert! Yes! After approximately three months, I have once again completed a drawing. Self-five! This time I’ve chosen to draw Gary Oldman as Sirius Black, and I must say I’m quite pleased. :) The eyes are too big (as always), but other than that I have no major complaints (obviously it’s not perfect … Continue reading

5.5 Years of Stress? Yes, Please!

April + London Haul!

April + London Haul!

Tag: R.I.P It or Ship It

Tag: R.I.P It or Ship It

I think I first saw Christine of polandbananasBOOKS do this tag, but I believe it was created by emmmabooks. The rules are pretty simple: 1. Write down the names of characters from different books on scraps of paper. You can do as many as you like, but I did 22 (9 girls and 13 boys). 2. Put … Continue reading

Yes! After more than a year, I’ve finally finished another portrait! Wohoo! I actually started making this quite a long time ago, and since I usually need to finish what I start within a week or I’ll leave it forever, I never thought it would ever be complete.
