Madness Returns

When I was 14 I bought the original American McGees Alice game and I got obsessed. I don't think I've ever been that excited or in love with a game or movie ever, so when the sequel came out I was really sad. Not because I doubted it would be a good game, just because I wasn't able to play it. I recently got an xbox along with the boy I brought home, and now they both live with me, so I'm finally able to enjoy this game.

The absolute joy of peppering my enemies to death or jump-dancing around with the vorpal blade just has me laughing out loud sometimes. Yes, I'm a real Alice fan and I'm happy I finally got some fan art made. I'm not happy with it, simply because I think I'll always doubt myself when it comes to making fan art of things I'm fawning over to this degree.

Springtime!

It's here! Kind of, well I don't want to get all my hopes up high as a kite but the sun is out and the snow has melted. I can stand outside in just my hoodie without freezing to death and it feels so good.

Today there was another creative friday at work, which means I've been listening to insanely cute music and searchign the webs for even cuter images as inspiration for my own creative project which might or migth not lead to something. It's a pretty neat way to spend an afternoon.

Mixing stuff

This is pretty exciting and odd, because my apartment just became "our" apartment along with the bear. We´re people in a hurry it seems, moving really fast, but it can't feel scary when you celebrate the first real evening living together with warm scones and putting both our duvets and our pillows together. Things are awfully cute and cuddly here as always. I can take the blame for that, I tend to have that effect on situations. But it's getting late, so now I'm gonna go enjoy the fact that I won't have to fight with a bear to fit in under one single duvet.

Self Customization

As I mentioned yesterday, I cleared out my wardrobe. This always makes me more motivated to try new combinatiosn of clothes since I find things I forgot I even own. I managed to throw away lots of stuff I never wear, things I bought ages ago that I keep for memory or because I still like the look of the stuff but I know I'll never put it on again. I have a hard time letting go of stuff in general. I keep old letters, cute little porcelain figurines and tin boxes that I don't even have enough shelves for. I'm planning to find myself a new apartment pretty soon and then I'll have to get rid of stuff for real. It will be tricky for sure but still, It's kind of refreshing too. It also makes it twice as enjoyable to find new little things to bring home when there is actually space to put them.

Weekend Wishes!


I'm all filled up with tasty junk food on this lazy Sunday evening. It's pretty nice, because I know that I really haven't been lazy today after all. I managed to clean up the apartment, sort out my wardrobe and get rid of stuff I never wear, plus I've made scones! Since I don't have any proper food to bring for lunch to work tomorrow I think I'll be having scones and some sweet tea in my lunchbox. That'll be pretty neat, although not very nutritious. 

So why have I been cleaning up and stuff? Despite having a filthy apartment, I also want it to be a bit more empty to be able to fill it with the stuff of the one moving in here soon. More about that another time. 

It feels like spring now! Bright colours for this weekends wishlist, yaaaay!

Sweet Artist: Khoa Le

 Khoa Le, also called moonywolf is an amazing artist from Vietnam. I adore her colour choices and the themes she has in her paintings. I used the cute picture of the girl and the balloons as my desktop backround on my phone for ages. I could easlily see all these images hang on my walls at home. To see her full DA-gallery, click her name at the beginning of the post. It's worth it!

Behave yourself!

I would consider myself to be kind of harmless and friendly most of the time, but there are a few situations in which I turn into some kind of violent, aggressive brat with absolutely no impulse control. I turn into this wild version of Emmy when I'm drunk, but I think most people start behaving weirdly while under the influence of alcohol. Worse is that I get furious after sleeping. I have a bad morning mood, sure, but I also fly into fits of rage after just a 10 minute nap in the afternoon. I have no explanation for this odd behavior, but I've heard my little sister is just the same. Poor bear has to endure my rage and thankfully he helps me when I have no energy left for anything. Sometimes he just teases me until I snap though, that bastard...

Self Customization

I'm feeling cosy and warm today. Wearing a summer dress from Indiska mixed with a warm hoodie/jacket I bougth back in Chicago some years ago.

Now I'm listening to this song that makes me smile real big and feel happy. I'm relieved to get to relax some this weekend. Planning to make it a calm one because I think I need a breather. So what does an enmi do when she wants to relax? Well, huge cups of vanilla tea, some popcorn and then sleep , curled up in bed while lazily watching the bear play Skyrim. A rather perfect way to wind down after a hectic week in my opinion.

Smile smile happy bear!

Today is Creative Friday at work which means we get the entire afternoon here at Coffee Stain Studios to go wild with our creative ideas. I want to create cute and cosy little games with funky characters with huge animal hats now. I'm no game designer, I have no idea what the game would be about, I just want it to look amazing!

This is a very sketchy concept of what's on my mind at the moment. I'd love to make traditional paintings in this theme. I do have the time to sit down and paint, but I have a crazy blue eyed bear occupying my head and invading my home. A very pleasant experience I must say.

I'm seriously considering making a hat like this out of papier maché and then wear it to work, just for the sake of it.

Oh goodness, I just got a crazy delicious muffin given to me. I love creative fridays at work!

Weekday Wishes!


I'm happy happy! It's been a very nice and rather calm weekend. My internet at home is dead, but time has been spent watching lots of movies with popcorn and tea. I've been falling asleep now and then, all cuddled up and relaxed. It feels as if things are as they should be right now. To go with this mood of mine, this weeks wishes are all about happy calm pink shades and cute little things.

So very cosy

I feel quite good right now. Life is pretty sweet to put it simply. I've done some small, basic changes to my life that has changed my mood in radical ways, and I've done some big changes that work very well for me. I think I'm a cuddle addict, and I get my daily dose of cuddles right now. <3

So right now I sit at work with a hot cup of vanilla tea while there is basiclly an ice storm outside. Well not a storm really, but the ice part is true. It's so cold I can't even take my regular unhealthy smoke breaks without feeling as if my fingers are falling off. That's when you start feeling thankful for that hot cup of tea to warm your hands on and those pink rosy sheets to curl in under at night.

Well, cuddle-times are probably over for this week, to be replaced by my now regular weekend routine of chaos partying. It's such a stark contrast between sipping sweet tea in my bed to sipping tequila rose at some party. I like contrasts.

So what is this pic then? Just a random little doodle I made at work and then I decided to colour it. She's almost like a human version of my cinnamon girl!
