It’s a commonly known fact that Husband and I don’t really want children of our own. That certainly may change someday, but for right now we’re content to look after our furry friends and call it good. While even that has some down sides, like having to change litter boxes and deal with some extra drool, the lovin’s are worth it. (Although my so-called “clumping action” kitty litter has failed to actually be “clumpable.” We are not amused. After meticulously scooping what felt like every single soaked grain of kitty litter individually into a plastic bag, I lifted it up only to discover that there was a hole in the bottom of it. That left a nice trail of … um, stuff on the floor. *grrrrhulksmash*)
Sorry, random tangent. The real reason for this post was to state that if I ever change my mind about having a kid, it’s bedroom is going to be decorated … like this! OMG, cuteness overload. And no, I don’t care if it was for a boy or a girl, that is freaking awesome. Although I might have to mix and match with this. I love the name Chewbacca. I still want to have a dog named that someday.
Of course, if it was up to me, my entire house would be decorated in video game/fantasy decor. Husband is the one who says it has to look all “grown-up.” Puh. How could he not love to see people setting their drinks on awesome Zelda coasters? (I do actually have some Lord of the Rings coasters, but they’re part of my collection, so I don’t tend to use them much. And yes, I collect random LOTR stuff. Someday, my collection shall be on display for all to see! Or at least all who come in my house. Provided Husband actually finishes the game room downstairs.)
I would make my entire house look like it came out of Lord of the Rings if I thought I could get away with it. I still love re-watching those movies. I remember the first time I saw Fellowship of the Ring and how utterly entranced I was. That simply fueled my already established elf fetish, which began the first time I saw Link in Ocarina of Time. Link has been hugely inspiring for me. In fact, he’s one of the few characters that I’ve actually done fan-art of:
They’re not perfect, but they were fun projects to do. I’ve been feeling the itch to start drawing again. These two drawings were done nearly three years ago. Sadly, I must give the usual lament, “If only I had enough time in the day!” Perhaps with the changing of seasons and the new opportunities coming my way, this will be something I can do once again. I haven’t tried to draw Twilight Princess Link yet. I think I sense my next art adventure. 😀
