(Hubby’s) Contest Winnings! + Re-ment Kitchen

A little while ago Ariel over at Rilakkuma Desu had an amazing giveaway that I entered and I asked my husband to enter it for me (so I could have better chances of winning, of course, hehe). Well, turns out he WON…and then changed his mind about giving me the prizes LOL. That’s what I get for turning my hubs on to Rilakkuma. We got the prizes and he agreed to give me everything but the plush (which I already had anyway so I didn’t pitch a fit) and a few other small things (including the Kori plastic figure which I really wanted…but oh well lol) so I guess it was a win-win! Thank you Ariel!!!!!


In other Re-ment related news, I GOT MY RE-MENT KITCHEN TODAY!!!!!!




I’ve been wanting a Re-ment kitchen for a long time, so when I saw this set for a STEAL at Fan21HK I HAD to get it and proceeded to freak out. The oven even makes a sound (which scared the living crap out of my husband when he picked up the package for me)! The cardboard cartoon backgrounds are kinda really ugly so I’ll definitely be replacing them, but I’m totally happy with this set! It came with four (huge) pieces including the dishwasher, oven, sink, fridge and lots of storage room! I apologize for the crappy photos but I was so excited! The red of the kitchen matches the Tamago Rilakkuma Re-ment perfectly and the Rilakkumart Re-ment provided most of the fun kitchen items like soap, sponge, paper towels and tons of food. I’m SO EXCITED to get this set put together and admire the tiny kitchen…

Happy Natural Time Rilakkuma Matchbox + Pouch

I used to be very heavily active in the online trading community, Swap-bot, and matchboxes were very popular! All you do is decorate the matchbox and then fill it with goodies! I made a 250 count matchbox (the bigger one) for my friend Chelsie on Youtube and I since we both love the new Rilakkuma series Happy Natural Time I decided to go with it as a theme! I love how it turned out!


I used this awesome ribbon set I had gotten at Michaels and it had all the fun teal ribbon and it was I think a dollar which was AMAZING! Anyways, I drew the same kind of pattern that in on the stationery for this series. I recreated the cook book from the re-ment for the top (it’s a smaller matchbox) and I filled it with a little deer cookie and a muffin I made using a piece from the re-ment as well.





I filled it with this super cute deer charm from Michaels, some deco tape, a handmade tart (I show it in the video below, for some reason i didn’t take a picture), some buttons of the series and other fun items for her. It was fun filling it with items that fit the theme!


Lastly I made this little zipper pouch. I used the wallpaper from the San-x website and printed on printable fabric to make it. I should have set the ink before sewing because the ink smeared and got faded 🙁 I remember to do that next time. Overall I’m happy with how it turned out!

Here is the video showing everything in more detail:

Happy Hollyween!

Hello! Happy Halloween or as I like to say, Hollyween!


My work has a costume contest every year, so this year I went as Vanellope von Schweetz from Wreck it Ralph!

I even made the cookie medal!


It was really fun to make and although it’s not 100% completely accurate I think it came out really well!

I also uploaded a fun tutorial for Halloween, a Wizard’s Brew Yogurt charm! Enjoy!

Rilakkuma My Deer!

I am very, VERY excited for the new Rilakkuma series that was announced and I about PEED my pants when I saw the new Re-ment from the series:

Isn’t it soooo adorable?!!? I’m dying. I love the homey, cozy feeling it has and of course any set with pastries I’m game. I adore the tart (I’m so going to make a clay version), the teapot (I am obsessed with teapots) and the kettle! Even the little cardboard kitchen that will come with the box is super adorable. I am definitely ordering this set as soon as it comes out in October.

I’ve already pre-ordered my Rilakkuma deer plush from Miraplush and I can’t wait to get it!

I need to get all the stationery for this series too! So cute!

Rilakkuma Birthday Party

In the last couple of years I have become greatly interested in party decor, especially the kind you make yourself. I love dessert tables and Amy Atlas  is my new hero! I decided for my 25th birthday I would do something special, so I created a Rilakkuma themed birthday party! It was a lot of fun to create and I hope to do more in the future. I made a video about the party on my Youtube where you can also download the printables .pdf for free!!
