Ready to get your kindness on? We’ve been encouraging everyone to help senior friends and neighbors this month. Why not send some of that kindness a senior pet’s way?

Senior pets have just as much love to offer as kittens or puppies, and many rescue shelters offer special discounts on senior adoptions. You might even consider adopting a senior pet and then bringing him or her with you to visit the residents of a retirement community or senior center. After all, there’s no age limit to making new friends.

For a few more ideas on how you can #getkind this month, drop by our blog. Now get out there and do some good for a senior near you!

The Cute Things on Tumblr Tumbler Giveaway.

In celebration of hitting 1000 followers a couple months ago and to promote that the “submit” button is now active on my blog, it’s giveaway time <3

Spring is in the air <3 That is, if you’re in Tokyo! In my neck of the woods in Japan, it’s still snowing! Tokyo’s Cherry Blossoms have already bloomed and fallen, but in Hirosaki, one of the most beautiful and scenic places to view Japanese Cherry Blossoms, the trees won’t bloom for another couple weeks. 

Starbucks Japan has already released and sold out of their promotional Sakura (Cherry Blossom) seasonal items, but in this giveaway, the newest 2014 Sakura Tumblr is available. These tumblrs are highly collectable and gorgeous and sell out within hours in Japan due to their immense popularity. There is an angelic Nekodo and small keychain plush to be your new friends as part of the prize, too. Include is even a sharp pencil from last year’s Happy Party Time Pokemon Promo. 

1st Prize:

1x Sakura Starbucks 2014 Tumblr

1x Alpacasso Cotton Candy 8cm size

1x Pink Angelic Nekodo

1x 8cm sumikko gurashi keychain

1x Happy Party Time Pokemon Promo Sharp Pencil

All items are new (the tumbler pictured is mine, but winner’s tumbler will be new). There are no runner-up prizes.

If you would like to purchase Cute Things on Tumblr, many of these things are sold out or unavailable now because of their immense popularity. I recommend checking Rosy’s Garden for Alpacasso or asking Julia/Alpacaloco for Cat Donuts/Nekodo.

Aomori. The snowiest place to live. Yeah. That’s 10ft of compacted snow we’re walking on, lol. That’s not a giant rock sprinkled with snow. That’s all snow.

The fun part was the drive up. The road steams because of the hot spring water so it looks nightmarish.

Doing some comfort food shopping last night when I can across a clerk putting out the new season’s kitkat flavor.

This is Cat Island. It is located in Tashirojima which is a small island in Ishinomaki, Miyagi, Japan. With a population inhabited by mostly cats. 

I really want to visit again.

My body is…not ready.

What does Texas Steak Sauce flavor taste like? Is this a Japanese flavor only, or did I just miss these on the shelf last time I was in America?

(The first can is sour cream and butter flavor.)

Very low quality scans of a Zine illustration I did for my illustration class, I thought I should at least upload some sort of update haha…. /cry/ Why can I not art?

This is based on my bakapaca (or arpakasso) cosplay I did earlier this year with my friends at J-Fest. I’m a much better seamstress then I am an illustrator in my opinion… and I’m not that good of a seamstress haha.

The jumbo babies arrived from Rosy’s garden!!

Comparison shot with the mature jumbo from kittyblacksheep :)

The fur is different. Mature jumbo the fur is dense like the deluxe series, and baby jumbo the fur is soft like the usual alpacasso :)

OH MY GOSH. The babies are so smuuuuuuuuuuushed~! I just want to squeeze them in a hug!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

I like it…but I wish it was either tie-dye or like the flower pattern from an earlier baby series.
