Sunday SNAPS!

Here are some pics of what I was up to this week! Probably easier to share my craft-ventures in a sum up post rather than a ton of posts.

This was a good but very busy week… and it was FLIPPIN COLD here! COLDER THAN MINUS 40 celsius this morning with windchill (for the American folks conveniently that’s also -40 Fahrenheit!) Now I’m from Winnipeg, Canada, which has at times been colder than Mars, but that’s still not something you ever get used to! So I’ve been stuck inside most of the week (darn ;)).

Luckily that left lots of time for cleaning…

I had to shuffle things around to fit some of my new creations and new books!

And did lots of creating:

Rainbow felt necklace
Oh hello felt Hello Kitty!

Got a delivery of new yarn so I got seriously back into knitting as well this week!

My new yarn is so bright and thick! Going to be a gigantic rainbow blanket!

Also did some decorating around my little pink house! Valentine’s decorating for most is my year round decor so I’m on cloud 9 stocking up on all sorts of goodies!!

That was a pretty busy week! Could’ve used an extra day in there for sure. Time to do it all again! 😀

Come visit my magical living room!

HAPPY LAST DAY OF 2018! This year was full of big goals and HUGE changes for me!

These were my 2018 resolutions!! Which I happily accomplished each and every one.

One of the biggest was to paint my entire place BRIGHT PINK. Living in a pink house has been my plan since I was a kid, but I started planning it properly a couple of years ago. It was A LOT of work and pricey, so I was finally in a place in my life where I could get it done.

I’m really happy with the way my place turned out and I’m so excited to show it off!! My favourite place is the living room. It’s soo bright (it looks like it GLOWS sometimes!), cheery, and just MAGICAL!

Here’s the rainbow entrance! Also love that you can see the pink glow of the kitchen in the window!

As soon as I walk inside and out of the cold (REALLY COLD these days it’s -40 degrees here tonight!), I get a warm cozy feeling!

I looove the fake flowers. Can never have enough! I want to cover every single surface in them. And look, magical creatures show up as well!!
Looking on to the whole space! I love this chandelier (from IKEA!) really brings a lot of SPARKLE to the place!

Say hello to my new unicorn friend who really brings a bit more glittery magic to this space! I have spent the last couple of days making him out of paper mache – which I haven’t done since probably elementary school!

From start to finish, it look me 4 days to finish him because the paper mache and paint had to dry (and I had to remake the horn a few times because Sugar decided it was a fun toy!) But this project was incredibly fun, and fairly easy. I had a spare frame from IKEA, and added a string of fake flowers and voila! You can find the full instructions for making your own unicorn head here on Lil Blue Boo!

I loved paper mache. Definitely a new skill for me, and one I hope to use again soon! Maybe I’ll make him some friends?!?

I hope to show off some of my other favourite spaces in my cute pink house soon! xoxo

Hello Kitty, collecting plushies, toys, and kawaii things! Video games! Things that remind me of my happy childhood!

Texting silly memes with friends! Looong walks in the forest! Dressing up, especially in BIG POOFY DRESSES! Hot rainy days and splashing barefoot in puddles! Creating cute things for other people! The craft aisle! Taking pictures! Kindness and silliness… really it goes on and on. You may “grow up”, but keep loving what you love to the extreme.

Hope your Christmas is filled with all sorts of things that make YOU happy as can be! 🙂

Day 5 – Your Proudest Moment

I love this little rainbow doormat because you know you’re about to walk into some sort of crazy happy wonderland!

Purchasing my own home is my proudest moment! I loved being able to paint it PINK (it’s a huge childhood dream come to fruitition!) and decorate anyway I want to (rainbows and kawaii and unicorns, oh my!). I am very much a hermit so my own little home is an extension of who I am. My favourite thing is that when I do leave, I know I get to come home to PURE HAPPINESS!

Day 2 – 20 Facts About You!


  1. My entire house is painted PINK and is covered in rainbows and unicorns. It’s like a visual representation of inside my brain!
  2. Actually almost everything I own is pink… I got stopped today by an older lady and was told I was the pinkest person she’d ever seen.
  3. But I was much more of a tomboy as a kid and REFUSED to even look at a dress until a couple of years ago
  4. I don’t own a single pair of pants now (dresses are spinny and fun!)
  5. But I’m hardly squeamish. If there’s a lost little worm on the sidewalk, I’ll give him a helping hand.
  6. You could say I have my head in the clouds… and I do actually have a glider pilots license (I haven’t actually flown in nearly 10 years though) and even taught classes in aviation for a few years!
  7. I never did get my drivers license though!
  8. So I pretty much walk EVERYWHERE (though of course I bus to work)
  9. I also ran my first half marathon this year. I love running and being alone in my own head without any distractions! Also running gear is very fluorescent so that is a definite bonus!
  10. I collect a LOT of cute stuff (you could say I collect collections!)
  11. I love documentaries and cooking competition shows
  12. I have degrees in history and legal administration, and have taken a few courses in web design. I really enjoy school and if I had more time and money I’d take classes forever!
  13. This horrifies people… but I am a very proud morning person. The only reason I don’t wake up before 5 is otherwise I wouldn’t be able to stay up until past dinner time hahaha
  14. I have way too many hobbies so I am really never bored.
  15. I have awful social anxiety. Part of my reason for this blog is to push through some of my biggest fears!
  16. But I also LOVE dogs (and all other animals!) My parents have a golden retriever named Heidi who is also my best pal
  17. My idea of a perfect day is spent baking, knitting, and cuddling my cat
  18. I absolutely LOVE all breakfast food. I will frequently have a bagel or waffles for dinner.
  19. I also love eating everything SPICY
  20. I don’t really like warm beverages but I think coffee smells AMAZING.
My Hello Kitty kitchen! I have somehow acquired a few hundred Hello Kitty bits and bobs

I love chasing after rainbows through the forest near my house!
