Favourite Things: October to December 2018

     Hey everyone – Happy New Year (almost)! Hope you’re all doing well. I missed a few posts last week due to Christmas and a few other things going on in my life but I’d rather not go too long without posting here and also, it’d be nice to kick off 2019 on time and with consistent posts.

     It’s the end of the year but also the end of the fourth quarter so it’s about time for me to take a quick look at a few of my favourite things from the past few months. Let’s start with something from October:

     Technically, this Scrawlrbox arrived at the end of September but it was clearly a box of art supplies meant for the October art challenge Inktober and I used the supplies in October so that’s why it’s appearing here. I mean it’s also here because the box was one of my favourite things from the past few months because it was a box of black pens of all difference styles and sizes and damn do I love me a selection of black pens!

     Another favourite thing from October was a birthday present from my sister:

     It’s a set of Clover Amour crochet hooks! Don’t they look so pretty? I’d been wanted them for a while because not only is each hook a different colour making it easy to find the hook you want, but these hooks are so comfortable to use.

     Of course, with new crochet hooks in hand I obviously needed some yarn to play with and in November I found myself at a craft fair…

     Let’s face it, yarn will always be on of my favourite things!

     Onto something a little less arts and crafts related…but still slightly because they’re things designed by artists that I got usually to stick on my sketchpads and journals…stickers!

     I bought a lot of stickers from Redbubble. I a lot of them were sloth related, Bob Ross related or asexuality related.

     Okay, something definitely not arts and crafts related for my last pick of favourite things: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (and the PS4 games I’ve been playing in general). I got AC Odyssey for my birthday back in October and have been loving it. I haven’t had too much time to play it lately and have barely scraped the surface of the game so I’ll be playing it well into 2019 I guess!

     Oh, one more favourite thing from these last few months…

Spyro Reignited finally came out!

     So those have been a few of my favourite things from October, November and December. Let me know what you think of my selection and what have been some of your favourite things?

    1. They do come out pretty quickly, Odyssey came out only a year after Origins I think! But with two big games in quick succession, I don’t think the next one will be out for while so at least I have plenty of time to get through Odyssey (because I’m gonna need all that time!).
      I’ve not seen too much of We Happy Few – it sounds interesting and looks kinda cool. What’s it like?


    2. Its quite interesting – I am only a few hours in but i am enjoying it so far. Its certainly a unique storyline with a Lot if really creepy stuff to discover tucked away in abandoned buildings and such.

    1. No problem! Well, I’m looking forward to seeing more of how you put your copics to use and also, all this talk of copics is making me want to break mine out again 😀


    1. Yes Copics!
      I don’t know what copics you might have but I have a few repeat colours from buying different sets. I think all the colours I have repeats of are in the basic 12 marker set with bright colours but if there’s any of those shades you don’t have, let me know and I can send them to you seeing as there’s no sense in me having duplicates ^-^
      A link might be easier, this is the set in question: https://www.cassart.co.uk/drawing/pens_1/product_type_marker_pens/copic_ciao_basic_assorted_colours_set_of_12.htm
