i think that while i enjoy taking pictures of everything, i've come to realize that the really bright, colorful, childish stuff is my favorite thing to photograph. i adore carnivals and playgrounds and things like that. so i'm going to be fixing up my redbubble to be more bright and happy stuff and i'm really excited! idk if it'll change anything as far as sales, but i'll enjoy looking at it more lol.

but i'll still put photos in there for anyone who wants a specific design too :)

honestly i wildly underestimated how lonely it was going to be without Cat around. we still have the dogs and Leela (another cat) but none of them are loving in the same was he was. he was like a toddler that needed constant love and validation and i had that around me for 10 years straight. the dogs are too big to cradle like babies and Leela absolutely does not want to be held and snuggled but Cat would settle into my chest and fall asleep while we watched a movie and even when he wasn't being held, he would be close enough to casually pet and now i'm just missing this tiny part of myself and i do not want a replacement pet but i also just wish he could have continued life happy and healthy for another few decades.

a friend suggested one of those squishmallow toys to hold and pet and i think I'm gonna get the orange cat version 🧡 i miss my boy so much.

The video game character Kirby, smiling happily and holding up a lollipop with a star placed on it. The background is made of diagonal lines of stars, with dots and stripes connecting them, and pale lollipops scattered haphazardly.

i've been collecting my scrap yarn and bits from what i cut off and i'm using the tiny bits for stuffing in toys i'm going to practice with soon and i'm using longer bits that aren't project length to do like a patchwork type blanket thing. i'm kind of doing the blanket with no tutorial though so i'm not sure how it's gonna turn out and it's also going to be a very long project to finish since i'm only doing it when i have enough scrap yarn and i try to use up my yarn as much as possible on donation hats

I haven't donated any yet because I'm just trying to get a big amount in different sizes and then donate them when fall starts. But I'm trying to get ahold of a foster care place to donate the hats to foster children but I've only found a few places that just take handmade blankets. If I can't' find a foster group I'm just going to donate to a children's hospital that has children up to 18 because the older teens could for sure use the adult size hats.

Either way I want to help kids and teens and it'll just come down to who's taking donations when I get everything ready to go. I know covid might delay donation taking too but I'm willing to hold onto them as long as I need to ^^

My dog Pearl seems to be doing better! The vet gave her stronger antibiotics and she's only coughing a small amount during the day and hasn't done any really big angry coughs! It may have been a sinus problem so we're gonna go for a check up in a couple days but I'm very hopeful! If it comes back it may have even been allergies that an anti-inflammatory she's also on is helping out? We'll see! But I'm hopeful for a quick recovery ♥♥♥

i'm so happy i learned loom knitting cause i don't really have to stress so much about holiday/birthday gifts for family and especially my younger siblings. they're all at the age where they think handmade stuff is just so cool, and it's been encouraging them to be more crafty too which is so great to see :3

So I deleted my wishlist post. If anyone would like to get me something for my birthday, Pearl has a vet appointment tomorrow because she coughed up some body mucus last night. I'd appreciate some ko-fi tips if anyone is willing or able.

I'm not sure on the exact pricing of the vet yet. I know she'll need an exam and probably chest x-rays. But she also has a really weird lump that didn't go away like her other lumps and they might want to do a biopsy of that too.

I know I'm a major hypochondriac but surprise cancer is kind of a big thing in my family and I'm incredibly worried that that's what's infiltrated her lungs.

As soon as I get the vet paperwork and receipts I might make a GoFundMe depending on how much it ends up costing. We can borrow some money from family but gotta pay it back.

You're so sweet! Her appointment was yesterday and so far things seem ookay? There's a chance that she just wasn't on antibiotics for long enough last time and that's why the cough came back so much stronger. So she's on a different kind that's stronger and they're basically treating her for pneumonia but while she was with the doctor she coughed up some blood so if things don't improve by Friday we're gonna have to get x-rays done and they'll be checking for chest masses so any thoughts / good vibes would be appreciated tbh

She also had a lump on her chest I was worried about but it ended up being like a hotspot that got inflamed or something? and they took care of that and said there's probably no chance it's related to the cough and idk but she's taken 3 pills of the antibiotics so far and seeeeems to be doing better? So we'll see how this round does and then if she goes down hill again we'll go from there. But I really, really hope she just gets better and stays better long term ♥

I think the thing that hurts me the most about my cat is that we just had a really really special bond. I don't want children but I have a really strong maternal instinct and he was simply a baby for his whole life. I could cradle him in my arms and he would just fall asleep. He loved to nap with me and was just constantly wanting to be held and cuddled. It was like he was an infant for the 10 years that he was mine and I adored every second of it.

And I love the other pets. They're all such good girls. But none of them want to be babies. Tank is kind of snuggly but she's 100 pounds so I can't just lift and hold her. Pearl doesn't like to be touched except on a rare occasion but she doesn't want snuggles at all. And Leela will let me hold her for like a single minute before she starts trying to play and chew on me.

I feel like this specific part of my heart has been ripped out now that he's gone and there's literally nothing I can use to fill it again.
