Miyazaki Lantern Complete!

After plenty of time procrastinating here and there, I’ve finally completed my Miyazaki lantern! With four panels featuring fanart from my four faves of the Studio Ghibli films; My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Howl’s Moving Castle. 

I’m not sure that I have a favorite panel of the four, as I truly love all four films…From the nostalgia and fun loving spirit of Totoro, to the bravery of Princess Mononoke, to the adventures of Sen and the romance between Howl and Sophie, I love them all! I recently bought a square lantern and plan on starting a new lantern project–I’m thinking Sailor Moon, my next favorite 😍

I absolutely love how it looks in black and white, and at night when I turn on the candles inside, the light flickers and feels so cozy! 💗🏮  Of course, being the paranoid person that I am, I use remote controlled fake candles 😅

Now just have to figure out where I want to put it! 

Until next time,


New Lantern Project Sneak Peek

So I’ve finally gotten down to working on a new project, and it’s going to be a piece of fan art/home decor that will honor my favorite animated movies by Hayao Miyazaki! 

Here I’ve started frosting the glass with Elmer’s glue, an idea I got from Pinterest, best website ever for creative inspiration 😀 Anybody want to take a guess what this will become? I’ll post pics once it’s complete! So excited!!

Speaking of Hayao Miyazaki, I also made a Ponyo-esque ramen (Jenny style which means + spicy and other doodads) a little while ago and thought I’d share here 🍜💕

Other than creating art, I also love to cook and I love food styling and photography (I’m still a very much a noob at it though, but I try!) If anyone has tips, please let me know!

 This is something I made today, a curry spam ramen 😍 I absolutely LOVE soft boiled egg and spam. Doesn’t matter what folks say about spam, I grew up with it and it goes great with any meal! And who doesn’t like an ooey gooey creamy soft boiled egg 😇

Until next time (hopefully with more progress on my new project!),
