Experimenting with New Things – Oggleflint

So I’ve been trying out new drawing techniques and also new programs lately. I had heard some good things about Krita and decided to give it a go, because honestly I’ve been pretty frustrated with Adobe’s subscription model for Photoshop, when I’d barely use it and found myself swapping to other programs for their featuresContinue reading “Experimenting with New Things – Oggleflint”

Adventures of an Adventurer

Hello all! It’s just me again with a post of what I’ve been up to. Mostly World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, admittedly. I will admit that in the current state of the game I feel a bit overwhelmed, but I sort of love that, too. I don’t intend for this blog to be all about WoW,Continue reading “Adventures of an Adventurer”

What I’ve been up to this past week!

So it’s been some time since I’ve updated, mostly because I’ve been spinning wheels on what to work on, or jumping from project to project and not really getting anything done. I have a big project that I’d like to do just to see if I can, but I constantly worry that I’m too flakyContinue reading “What I’ve been up to this past week!”

Book Review: The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up

Just in time for the new year, a review about a decluttering book! I’ll admit that when Marie Kondo first became a sensation, I was pretty skeptical. I tried to read her book but it was one of those that I ended up skimming over, going “meh this isn’t for me” and then returning itContinue reading “Book Review: The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up”

Book Review: The Child Thief

The Child Thief by Brom has been on my reading list for a good long time, as has been The Devil’s Rose and Krampus: The Yule Lord. I figured that now that I’m done with the 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, I’d sit down and work on a few other books that have been on myContinue reading “Book Review: The Child Thief”

Book Review: Hicotea

I read Nightlights by Lorena Alvarez Gomez earlier this year and fell in love with it. I loved the story, but I especially loved her artwork. Naturally, when I saw that Nightlights had a sequel, I had to go pick up Hicotea. I think I liked this one even more than the first, and Lorena’sContinue reading “Book Review: Hicotea”

2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge Finished!

So this year I decided to do my first ever Popsugar Reading Challenge. Will I be doing it again next year? Absolutely. I’ve read a ton of books this year (and I’m still not done) but I feel like this challenge really helped me to reach out and choose books that I normally wouldn’t have,Continue reading “2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge Finished!”

Book Review: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

I had such mixed feelings about this book. I think my favorite thing about it was that the front cover sets you up for a little of what you would expect. As I was reading, I had a lot of flashbacks to my own childhood. Not that my parents were strict, and I’m only 1/8thContinue reading “Book Review: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother”
