pattern making

My next Dread Wolf plushie! It actually looks more like a wolf than the last one. c:

He’s smaller than I thought but was easy to work with! The free pattern I got from pinterest here. The pattern was originally a fox but it actually looked just like the dread wolf from the in-game murals, so why not? c: He is completely made of felt and was hand-stitched together. All in all it took a few hours to complete and an easy project for anyone new to sewing, like me!

I am planning on adding this to the list of possible online shop products, once I’m able to open one. This and also the bookmark for sure. c;

I love this twisting pattern to make QUICK and EASY natural hair updos that last the week! This easy hairstyle can be worn out fluffy as shown, or keep the front twisted to turn it into an instant protective hairstyle! Perfect for the office and corporate attire, as well as any upcoming holiday parties! I hope you enjoy! XO! Nap


In this tutorial, I go over the three different types of drafting I employ in my work along with some of the basic tools. Part 2 on how to do a basic sloper coming soon!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
