Forest Lair Plans For 2015

Here is a list of posts that will most likely appear here soon (actually, considering my laziness, you shouldn't trust these “most likely” and “soon” though...^^)

Zoo photo hunt
Postcards & magnets
Video games live
Hobbits, swamps and dogs
A warrior llama
Fanart for N.K. Jemisin's novel
Review of World Maker by exist†trace
My new arm warmers

...and a lot of other things, I guess I'll have to post every day. :D

Also, I want to read so many books next year! Like Ancillary Sword, The Kingdom of Gods, Noriko Ogiwara's fantasy novels, The Shadowed Sun, The Slynx, Norwegian Wood, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, The Mirror Empire, Childhood's End, The Fifth Season, Lagoon, more Sailor Moon, more manga in general, some steampunk, Agatha Christie, Octavia Butler... Damn, where will I find enough time?!

What are your plans for 2015? ^o^

Art: Agnia's Winter

My friend Agnia wrote to me the other day, “Lately I just wanna grab a cat, get under blanket and spend this winter like that, with Placebo and coffee.” 

Well, of course I had to draw this*. (^-^)ノ

I was listening to the most appropriate music when working on this drawing.

Keiju, the Unusual Hedgehog

Our hedgehog Keiju is unusual. Normally Finnish hedgehogs (Erinaceus europaeus) hibernate from autumn to Vappu in May, but this one wakes up around Christmas to enjoy delicious festive food.

Before that she will be sleeping in all sort of places.

Russian chocolate

When sweet hobbits* agreed to meet my mom in Moscow and bring a package from her to Finland, I asked her not to buy too many sweets**. “Just one chocolate block is enough.” But my mom's memory is very selective, it seems, because apparently she only remembered “buy chocolate”. :D Here is her idea of “one chocolate.”

Villa Elfvik & Hazelnut Coffee

Today there was a Christmas market in Villa Elfvik, one of my favourite places in Espoo. They were selling local organic food and many cuuuute decorations. It was so crowded! And we ate cakes. :D

In Which I Promote Rurousha, Again

Today I'm gonna show you the funny side of Rurousha (I've shown the fluffy side here earlier). Since Ru makes me chuckle and ROFL all the time, I decided to make you suffer the same fate. :D

Here we go!

Rurousha loves trees.
