Some other things I wrote

Links I loved

  • I’m kind of bored of daily drawing challenges taking over my feeds but I’m loving emseeitch’s Scotstober combining cute animals and the Scots language.
  • I love Creative Kawaii’s round-ups of completed Japanese craft kits. Nikki is so good at fiddly detailed crafts. 
  • Always a delight – classic public domain books with hilariously wrong stock photo covers.
