Old Post New Home: Thegirl who can't write is writing a book

((This was posted on my companies' old blog, which I will be taking down, because it moved. It was kinda therapeutic for me to write this, so I didn't want to lose it. So, if you have read/seen this twice you know why <3 .="" br="">
When I was in ninth grade we got the most awesome summer assignment ever - read three books and write reports about them. Now, while this would not excite the normal kid, I was over the moon. I mean the book list we got had the Hobbit on it! C'mon the chance to read one of my favourite books for the billionth time and then write a report on what I thought about it?! Who would not want to spend their summer doing that?
At the start of tenth grade, after handing in our assignments for the summer, we received them back the next week and the teacher was /pissed/. Everyone had copied their reports from the internet except one person... My face lit up, I was the good kid, how cool was I to write those reports? I kicked those…

DIY Tutorial - Mini Doll Houses

Recently on my G+ page I have been posting a lot of pictures of these tiny 'doll houses' I have made. Since I have been so busy in my life etc. making these tiny creations has really been a big form of stress relief for me. You can get one done in an evening or two and the result is totally adorable and pleasing.


I first found out about miniature doll houses on the blog Open House Miniatures. They talk about the history and origin of these things, so if you are interested in that please give their blog a look. There is also a tutorial on the blog, but I found it rather confusing, because I wanted to make my own houses rather than the print out provided in the tutorial.


So... I have created this tutorial for you on how to make your own folding doll house! My only request is that when you have finished one please let me see a picture, I think they are so cool.

Breakup cards

So, I have a friend who is going through a particularly bad breakup. The kind that pretty much makes you question your sanity and what the hell you are doing in life. That rips up your heart and shoves it down your throat so you are constantly walking around with a lump that makes you want to cry.

Breakups friggen suck. They suck so hard.

I made these cards for him. If you're gonna suffer you might as well do it with a greeting card.












I am mostly speaking to my friend now, but also in part to anyone who is going through a break up or has had someone break up with them. You are amazing. You'll get through this and you will be a better person for it. If your ex can't see the amazing person you are, screw them! And I don't mean in the utterly messy break-up sex way. I can't wait to see the fantastic things you are gonna do in the future. You're stronger than this!

xx

RPGaDay 3: Pillars of Eternity

The topic of today's #RPGaDay is 'Favourite new game in the last 12 months'. This is easy - Pillars of Eternity.



I am not sure if I am allowed to post a video game for this... probably not, but Pillars of Eternity are fantastic and reminds me of Baldur's Gate. It is also the type of game that you don't want to start if you don't have times to invest in it... cause it is friggen addictive!

RPGaDay 1: WITCH

So, after this post of shameless self promotion for #rpgaday I am only going to pimp my most favourite games aside from my own, but for my answer today the my most anticipated rpg is WITCH!


I Kickstarted my game WITCH back in March and we are well on out way to being done. It is set to release in November. WITCH is a dark, modern fantasy role play game where you play a member of the Fated a witch or warlock who has sold their soul to a demon for power. The game centers heavily on persona drama and weaving a character's epic story into the main plot of the game. It is about triumphing over seemingly insurmountable odds and discovering yourself... and magic!

Out magic system is pretty special (I think ^_^). Unlike normal rpgs we don't limit how much you can cast, you can cast your magic as much as you want! However, your chance for catastrophic failure increases each time you do, so the question comes down to how much you are willing to gamble in order to get things done.

I work…

Vegaupdate!

Okay, first I need to apologize for something! It is was jerky of me to say that the recipes I posted before only kinda looked good. They looked totally good, even before I tried them, so I just wanted to say that!

Now, you are probably wondering - how has it been Liz?! 

It has been going... well! Which I find extremely scary. When am I going to crash from this thing? I think there are a few reasons for this. The first is my husband and I eat out once or twice a week and, like I said in my first post, when I go to eat out I eat whatever I want (including meat, dairy and eggs).

Secondly, my diet hasn't changed much (except for eating way more desert... only for the sake of trying of recipes of course ^^). Erik and I used to eat vegetarian a lot, because biological meat is so expensive. When I cooked veggie food, I often cooked Thai, because it is delicious. There is no dairy in Thai food and while I used to use a lot of eggs, I have stopped doing that and replaced them with more v…

Going Vegan. Kinda. With recipes that look good. Kinda.

So, yesterday after running I went onto my FB feed and the first thing I see (and click) is this video:
WARNING: This is really sad, but not graphic.
So, granted the fact that I am always overly emotional after running added to my guttural reaction to this video. But, it is still horrible. Naturally, this lead me to say, but this doesn't happen in all countries right? Then I youtubed 'baby chicks grinder' and my world basically shattered.

Last year I started to buy biological meat after watching other horrible youtube videos ....I should really be banned from the site... Any way, I had decided I liked meat, but that I only wanted to eat it from animals that had a happy life before they died. Now, I realize that there is a lot of corruption in the biological meat industry, that what you might be getting isn't really biological, but it was my sincere belief that by creating demand for these types of products, that at one point it would create change.

Buying bio meat/dai…

Beautiful Sunday - Love wins!

People, I am here to say - I have had a really bad few weeks. As always Tina Belcher, my spirit animal, sums it up perfectly:


But then on Friday something amazing happened and I thought- You know what? It's time for a beautiful Sunday. So, here we go!

I hope you are having a beautiful Sunday. I hope there is someone in your life who accepts you and utterly loves you for everything you are. If there isn't, I hope you know you are amazing and wonderful and that you mean something to this world. I hope that your week has treated you kindly. I hope that people have treated you with the respect the deserve and you've felt the love that everyone needs. I hope this post will make your Sunday a bit brighter.
