Now announcing: We carry children's sizes on Etsy!

That's right, kiddos! We've expanded our shop and have begun making and carrying children's sized tie-dye! From onesies to youth large and with plenty more on the way! 
Here are some of the designs we already have up in the shop.
We think they're pretty groovy for a little goober, but decide for yourself!


Proud to announce we're now partnering with Activate by Bloglovin!

Baby Rat Growth & Development Part 1: the first 10 days

In this post I'm going to cover the development of Deadpool's first litter, from birth to day 10. 
This will be a fairly image heavy post as I tried to accurately and thoroughly document their growth process. Hope you enjoy!

Japan: Girl's day out in Odaiba 2012-02-08

On one of our days off together, the girls and I ventured out to Odaiba for a fun filled day of goofing off together. Odaiba is a really fun area with beautiful beachfront views of Tokyo and Rainbow Bridge, a small Statue of Liberty, tons of arcades, restaurants and shopping centres. It's a hot spot for dates!

Another snowy day, another adventure around Shin-Urayasu!
This time around my friend Mao and I explored a shopping complex that had a big display of goofy gifts. See for yourself!

Poop chocolate, anyone?

Japan: Snow day drinks in Shin-Urayasu 2012-01-23

Homemade omurice, a Japanese home cooking staple!
While I've yet to actually try it in a restaurant (though they do exist), it's a simple dish of fried rice seasoned with ketchup and a soft egg omelette draped on top. I had mine with some broccoli and a big old cup of coffee to power myself through the day!
I had plans to meet with friends for a drink after work in Shin-Urayasu~

Construction at Ikspiari, across the street from Tokyo Disney Sea.

New purple pink hair 2016/01/20

Well, it was purple...
 by the time of posting this, my hair has long since faded from purple to lavender, silvery-blue to green with pink spots...
le sigh.
I used Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink mixed with their Voodoo Blue and lots of conditioner and got enough to do two rounds of dye, which is good considering how much this has faded since application. I don't wash my hair every day or even every other day- it's only shampoo'd two or three times a week max. Even so, I'm likely going to be bleaching my roots and reapplying my homemade lavender dye again soon. 

Wanna see the before and progress photos? Read below!

Happy February's & brand new babies

Hey guys, been a minute!
Needless to say, January got away from me. 
Between working on a book cover, volunteering with Critical Care Comics, adopting two new rats then losing our beloved fat rat Pendleton, working on trying to resolve the situation with my grandmother, car troubles and the rest I didn't find much time to work on the blog. For that I apologise.
