Day 16 of inktober!

Today I had to depict the feeling of Fall. I love the weather.

It’s dark, yet the clouds are always super bright like snow. It’s calm, quiet, and just a little chilly. It always looks like it’s going to rain outside, but then it never does. Everything is still, and the colors are faded and cold, but the moment you step inside a house or a store, there’s color everywhere and it smells like candy and spices.

It’s the best time to sit in bed all day with a hot cocoa and a stack of blankets, binge-watching your favorite shows or reading your favorite book. No obligations, everything is peaceful.

Fall is the feeling of home and familiarity, no matter where you are.


Cheapo Altar Tips

• There’s lots of free stuff outdoors. Acorns, cool rocks you find, pine cones, seashells, flowers, leaves, etc.

• Put a small jar or glass outside in the rain to collect water for your altar

• Put a small jar or glass of water outside during a full moon to make moon water for your altar

• A small dish of iodized salt for purification, cleansing, and to represent the earth element

• Print out artwork of a deity you honor, or a master you follow, or even just someone you love and respect (Mikao Usui, Amma, your grandma, the goddess Brigid, Jesus, etc)

• You can buy cheap candles at the dollar store. Choose a color and a scent that resonates with the theme of your altar. If it’s a seasonal altar, buy accordingly. If it’s a self-empowering altar, just choose whatever your favorite is. If it’s a healing altar, maybe white or green with a clean, fresh scent would be best. You choose!

• Old tablecloths, curtains, and scarves can be used as an altar covering

• Food items like apples, spices, nuts, candy, etc can be added for seasonal flare (i.e. in the fall, decorate with apples, tiny pumpkins, gourds, hazelnuts, cinnamon sticks, etc)

• Draw symbols, sigils, or runes of your choice on rocks you find, pieces of paper, or wood chips to add to your altar (again, choose symbols based on intent)

• Write down an affirmation, spell, or just a motivational message and tape it above your altar. Alternatively, you can fold it up and read it every time you visit your altar. It can help solidify the intent for your altar and empower you in the process :)

Flat lay graphic tutorial

I’m going to teach you how to make this, which is a slightly altered version of a panel from my most recent graphic:

So I started making these graphics a while ago, and although a few people have asked me how I make them, I’ve only ever given really simple instructions so this is going to be a more detailed walk-through on how I make these graphics. Basically, I’m obsessed with them, I’ve made several variations (x, x, x, x) so there isn’t just one way or a correct way to make them.

The popular soda brand, Azupop!, is designed after Azumarill with its wave-like and bubble patterns. It’s infused with vanilla and contains a special frothy cream made of condensed milk unique to its brand; kept sealed in a bubble within the can/bottle until it’s opened and the pressure pops it. It’s fizzy, bubbly, creamy and sweet; very smooth and creamy on the tongue and is a real hit with the kids. 

Though they only used to come in 2 original flavours: blueberry (blue) and lemonade (yellow), they now have an assortment of flavours, all colour-coded in the Azumarill’s design. Some of these are peach, melon, grape, green apple, bubblegum and coconut.

They even have special seasonal flavours such as watermelon, matcha, mango, pumpkin spice, candy corn, plum and yuzu while special limited editions even include stranger flavours such as kimchi, miso, cheese, cream potage, curry and teriyaki. Go figure.

The mascot of the brand is of course, an Azumarill named Poppi.

For the langst prompt: they go to a new space mall and lance sees another earth store and it has a bunch of stuff and it reminds him of home and he just can't deal with anything and just goes back to the castle after purchasing some stuff and doesn't talk to anyone bc he's so overwhelmed.

Oh lordy help me now

Lance had been standing in front of the store for about 10 minuets. He couldn’t bring himself to walk in. It reminded so much of the first time in a store like this, except this time he didn’t have Pidge to drag him around. Lance inhaled until his lungs ached and slowly exhaled. He straitened his back and walked into the store.

This store was similar yet different from the first store he was in with Pidge. This store had a cow, and video games just like the other one. However this store hit closer to home. It had face masks, cooking spices, human utilities, board games and clothes.

Lance slowly walked around the store picking up different objects and examining them. He attempted to swallow around the lump in his throat and started to pick up certain objects. He picked up headphones, some candy, spices for Hunk, and seashells. Lance carefully examined the seashells, he put one up to his ear and listened for the ocean, and he heard it.

Lance made his way up to the register, placed the items down and grabbed the money that Coran had given him. After he grabbed his bags he exited the store after he kindly refused a free cow. Lord knows he didn’t need another one.

He met up with his team and listen to Pidge and Hunk talk excitedly about what they saw and bought. Lance couldn’t bring himself to talk so he just listened.


Later at dinner everyone was chatting to one another. Hunk attempted a few times to bring Lance into the conversation but every time Lance would shut him down. He didn’t feel like talking. He wanted to be home, with his mother and father and siblings.

“So Lance what did you buy at the mall?” Coran asked as he twirled his mustache.

Lance glanced up at Coran, then shrugged.

“What kind of answer is that buddy?” Hunk spoke with laughter bubbling in his throat.

“Tell us what you bought?” Pidge inquired.

Lance stared at the table and shrugged again.

Shiro inhaled “Aright, I think Lance is a bit tired of shopping all day.”

Lance nodded and everyone moved on from the subject.


Throughout dinner Lance received worry glanced from Shiro and Allura but Lance gave them a smile and went silently into his room after dinner. Once he was in the safety of his room he walked over to were he dumped the bag on his bed. He pulled out the seashells and sat there listening to the ocean, imaging he was home.

I hoped you like this!

My poor homesick son *cries*

Thank you!!!!
