An Update!

I realized its been a while since my last entry, so I’m going to change that!

I haven’t had too much to blog about lately and I’ve been busy making things for my Etsy shop, so that’s taking a lot of my time that isn’t work. Currently, there are only two items listed in the shop, but I plan to add more items over the weekend.

The shop is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Phantomini

The shop is named after the furry babies living with us, haha. I liked how nicely Phantom and Omi’s names matched up and since I couldn’t think of another name for the shop, PhantOmi it was!

Right now, the items I have in the shop are Adipose earrings (those cute blobs of fat from a Doctor Who episode) and little pumpkin charms with black kittens. The Adipose are selling the most, so those are something that I think that I’ll always keep in stock, while the pumpkin-kittens are seasonal. On my upcoming days off work, I plan to start working on Christmas related items and custom requests for other Doctor Who related earrings.

To end this, here are the earrings and charms:

More Pumpkin

Today’s pumpkin deliciousness, Pumpkin frozen custard with pecans from Fritz’s! This is the best! It’s going to take a lot for me not to go get it every day, haha. Lucky for me, my wallet, and my diet, I don’t live behind Fritz’s anymore, so it’s not quite as much of a temptation to me as it was.

And, as a tradition to myself, I eat one pumpkin Reese’s once I see them out.

Not pumpkin, but pumpkin shaped AND a Reese’s, so that’s good enough for me. I have no idea when or why I started this yearly tradition, it’s just something I do.

Fall mood

I know it’s not fall yet, but I’ve been more than ready for it, so once we hit September, I pulled out the decorations, mainly just the pumpkins and seasonal candles. While the cats are technically Halloween oriented, those are actually the salt and pepper shakers we use year round. I’m saving the rest of my Halloween decor for October.

So the apartment is very pumpkin-y, which makes me a happy kitten. And to keep with the early fall-like activities, I had my first Pumpkin Spice Frappucinno from Starbucks yesterday! As I thought, it’s delicious with the chips.

Pumpkin cheesecake cookies

I found this bag of deliciousness at the store today. Bit early for fall limited items, but the pumpkin lover in me says that’s a complete lie and that pumpkin should never ever be limited. I think I have to agree there…Anyway! I took one look at these and snagged a bag of them without a second thought.

They did not disappoint at all. They’re soft and chewy, and though the cheesecake parts are a bit sweet, the pumpkin spice helps to balance it.

I definitely recommend trying them!
