Who is Pippi Longstocking?
Pippi Longstocking (whose full name is Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking) is a fictional character created by Astrid Lindgren. It was a story that Miss Astrid created in 1944 as a get-well story for her daughter (who, by the way, named the character!) The story was published in 1945 and since then, several movies and TV shows have been created about the character, along with a number of other books.
Why is Pippi so awesome?
It’s her mismatched socks, DIY clothes, and occasional pirate patch. It’s her love of playing dress-up and her inquisitive nature. She is sassy, unafraid, and honest. She has magical powers. She has a pet horse and a monkey. She is filled with joy and positivity. Oh, and she’s a ginger.
How can I bring the Pippi spirit into my life?
Wear your hair in pigtails. Sew your own dresses. Wear mismatched stockings with garters. Go out to sea & be a pirate princess. Play dress-up. Go on adventures (and don’t forget to bring your friends!) Put glue on your shoes and walk up the walls. Be kind, honest, and fair to everyone who deserves it. Adopt unusual pets. Draw life-size pictures of animals on the floor. Look for ways to make your life (and the lives of those around you) magical!
Oh, and check this out! I came across this custom-made Pippi My Little Pony made by NordicPonyBoy. Awesome!

Hey there, darlingdears. How are you? My life has been kinda hectic lately (or at least, much more hectic than I’m used to! I know that others must live way more hectic lives than I do. Ha. I just need to get used to this new pace, I reckon.) I hope that I can soon figure out ways to make more time for my art and et cetera. I feel a bit drained and lifeless, not having enough time to work on those sort of things. But I know it’s just a temporary lull. I think that more inspiration, ideas, and art will shine and glimmer soon!
These are a few simple, little designs I’ve been tinkering with. Just some fun things that I’ve been thinking about printing out and turning into necklaces mayhaps!

111009; I want to do ridiculous and passionate and insane things. I want to scream (at you) and feel night-time thunderstorms on my skin. I want to bleed and bruise. I want to grow and heal. I want to disintegrate and reform my molecules. Create myself. I don’t want to be whoever you want me to be. I want pen-names and personas. Aliases and akas and fictional characters. I don’t want to feel hopeless ever again. I want to be fearless; a super-heroine. Godly. Goddess-like. Of god. To me & through me. Find faith and solace. Comfort and worship. Within my skin and all the way down to my bones.

As some of you already know, my mom passed away on March 16th. I have been handling the whole situation surprisingly well. I reckon my years of practising positivity have paid off. Also, I really believe that my mom has been giving me her strength. She has always been strong, bold, and sassy. I’ve always been the complete opposite; shy, quiet, and timid. Ever since my mom went into the hospital on March 4th, I feel as though she’s been giving me this crash-course in life. Within a month, my life has changed drastically. I’ve had to face so many fears and anxieties. I feel as though my mom did this for me to make me stronger. I can survive this; I can survive anything.
My new mantra lately has been, “Every day is magical.” My mom taught me this. She has taught me so many lessons recently and I am so grateful. I want to celebrate life every day. In every way I can. I’m happy to say that my blogging shall resume. And my joy and bliss shall resume. I plan to rock my life hardcore. In honour of my mom. ♥
