A Very Belated Blog 4th Anniversary & Housewarming Cupcake Giveaway! @ Monday, July 21, 2014
In celebrating of me finally getting the same usernames for my gmail, blog, instagram and twitter (which I have yet to use) and making a
This is also a very belated blog-anniversary, as that happened in April, I took some pictures though never got around to it. Though I did back-up a lot, so the original picture above is in storage.
But first le beau wanted to know the reason behind my first blog address/url. If you search up 'delta67' when just typing up that in search bar the first suggestion is "delta 67 blood+". Blood+ is one of my favourite animes, it's very violent but I love the characters and the music (I actually bought ost!). In Blood+ 'delta67' is a blood-borne disease that turns humans into monsters, that feed on blood. This blood comes from Diva, one of the twin queens, though it does not affect her. She along with her team are creating monsters known as 'Chiropteran' to create an army (and probably in the hopes of world domination). Her sister, Saya the protagonist is the good twin, raised as a human which Diva was locked up in a tower, it's her mission to slay all the monsters, and only she can do it, as her blood kills them. I loved that anime, and still have the grand theme (edited to 30sec) as my ringtone. P.S. Blood+ the anime is nothing like the movie which was crap. 'Charlie' was added in front as it then made it something that when you google only military and irrelevant link would turn up.
Easter Monday, I'm working on the bloganniversay giveaway! Which is a lot more challenging than you'd think, as beauty blogs giveaway beauty products and food blogs give away good food/wine giftcards or experiences. What about lifestyle blogs? Movie/theatre tickets? Shopping giftcards?
I wanted something unique, something Charlie. Something I made. And then when I was organizing my desk it came to me. Cupcakes! I can send you a freshly baked cupcake! Oh wait, post says no... that and it'll have tumbled and gotten squished along the way...
Le Petit Gateau - Emily the Strange - When in Rome!
Violet Crumble - Summer Days - Canary at Sea
It's a brooch (because I love brooches!), you will get to choose the colours for the cupcake, and if you'd like sequins. Or you could choose something I designed (see above). I also have seed-beads but only in black and red (semi-transparent, not solid).
Example of seed-beads with a different cupcake design, this design's too big for a brooch so we decided not to use it. More home deco or accessories size, like on a little girl's bag or dress. I just wanted to share this picture too. :)
Felt Choices - Yes that is flash, I'm
