Most Wanted: Jinbe San Plush Pouch

Posted on April 11, 2017 by

Jinbe San plush pouch

My plush collection is getting a little out of hand, so I’m trying to only purchase useful fluffy items from now on. The Jinbe San plush pouch is a perfect excuse to splurge a little money.

His mouth is a zipper at the same time! I love this concept, plus the fact that it looks like Jinbe San has gobbled up your valuables. I’m planning on using this pouch to store loose items in my bag. Or maybe I’ll place it on my desk, so Jinbe San can chew on some pencils.

You can find the Jinbe San pouch at official San-X resellers, such as AmiAmi and Aitai Kuji.

Sharptooth Snail Subscription Box Review

Posted on April 10, 2017 by

sharptooth snail review

Being kind of a science geek, I was excited to receive this Sharptooth Snail Mail subscription box from Sharptooth Snail, run by illustrator Veronica Guzzardi.

Inside the box I found 4 items: an adorable space unicorn pin, a set of buttons (badges), a James Webb Telescope postcard and a comic.

sharptooth snail review

My favourite item was the badge set featuring some fantastic creatures including my all-time favourite, the tardigrade.

sharptooth snail review

Tardigrades are amazing micro beasts with actual super powers like surviving extremes of temperature and being blasted into space and it was great to see them getting some love.

The handmade comic is about the artist’s visit to NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope where the panels echo the honeycomb shape of the telescope’s gold mirror.

It was very thought-provoking and I would love to see more of her work.

Check out Sharptooth Snail website for more of her cool products. The black glitter tardigrade pin has gone straight to the top of my wish list!

Sharptooth Snail Mail

Sharptooth Snail Mail subscription boxes start at $19.99 for a single box with discounts for longer subscriptions and additional shipping costs for international buyers.

(Box was provided by Sharptooth Snail for review but these are my honest opinions and the photographs are my own, except for the last one.)

Easter Crafts, Things To Make

Free Cute Easter Crafts

Posted on April 7, 2017 by

Easter has always been the best time of the year for me, and luckily Easter is right around the corner. Who can say no to pastels, cute animals, and candy? Here are a few of my favorite Easter crafts you can start on right away!

I couldn’t not add this Easter tic tac toe game made out of polymer clay by aCupofCakeTV to this list. It’s just perfect for an Easter day activity with friends or family!

We all know bunnies are the main reason Easter is so great, but the polymer clay easter egg turtle by Creative Rachy makes you wonder why turtles aren’t more prominent during the holiday! This project would be super sweet given as a gift nestled inside a plastic Easter egg I think.

I don’t think I can create an Easter craft list without adding at least one cute chick project, and BudgetHobby’s Easter chick plush is just the thing for those that enjoy cute plush projects. I like how it combines sewing and needle felting.

HelloYellowYarn

Hello Yellow Yarn’s amigurumi bunny and chick make for a sweet pairing to keep or give away in Easter baskets!

Sculpey

The polymer clay egg cup bunny project on Sculpey’s website is absolutely perfect, and the tutorial is very detailed to make it easy even for absolute beginners. You could also use these well after Easter is over as little trinket or jewelry dishes.

Not to mention the SCK tutorial for an Easter bunny pencil case in case you missed it!

Fries till I die! I love French fries or if you are in the UK you might call them chips. Whatever you call them they are one of my favorite foods! Here are my fry picks (ketchup is optional)!
