Blog Update

Monthly Round-Up: March 2016

Hello! How is everyone doing on this lovely April Fools Day?!

Don’t worry, I have never been great with pranks…I always take them a little too far…so today I thought I would do a monthly round-up of what has happen this past month here on the blog, and other places on the internet!

What’s Happened On The Blog?

At the beginning of March I finally finished a pet project I’ve had for a while now. A friend of mine kept encouraging me when I was feeling down about keeping this blog going, and so I wanted to draw her cat in my kinda-zentangle style as a thank you for her encouragements.

Then I started working on and completed a character a friend created for a D&D campaign.  He was fun to create because I had interacted in the game with this character and getting the chance to draw him to life was a thrill! (To say the least, I didn’t think he looked like what I ended up drawing him as.)

I finally started working on a drawing of Argent Adept, a character from Sentinels of the Multiverse. I have learned a lot already from this little project, especially because I’ve never drawn someone from that pose before. Hopefully he’ll be finished soon. *crosses fingers*

The biggest project I’m working on, going from my cluttered life to becoming a minimalist while being frugal, has been a slow ride. Recently I had a kinda setback on this project. My parents needed me to clean my old home in their house so that they could renovate it, and I ended up with three boxes of books coming home with me to my apartment….I’m such a book hoarder.

On the plus side though, I shared earlier this week some “silent rules” I’ve learned about being on social media. I also threw in a sneak peek for something I’ve been working on for the blog in this post as well. 🙂

What Happened On YouTube?

Two Board Game Blender videos came out this month on the Dice Tower. In the first video was themed “Fantastic Worlds,” and for my segment I created and showed how you too could make your own Troll Swill, inspired by Red Dragon Inn. The second video was themed “Spring has Sprung.” For it, I designed some flower pots inspired by the game Takenoko, which is one of the cutest and beautifully colored games I’ve seen.

On my own channel for Boards & Crafts, my recipe for Dice Krispies was loaded. If anyone has had a chance to watch my segments on Board Game Blender, you might have noticed that I’m very behind on my own channel. However, I am catching up, and have some great new video ideas for the channel that will be coming soon!
