Happy I Love Yarn Day!

Today we shellebrate our favorite crafty medium:  yarn!

Mom’s favorite yarn for making amigurumi (knit or crocheted plushies) and my Halloween costumes is Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn.  Lily Sugar’n Cream is a 100% cotton yarn that comes in all the colors of the rainbow and keeps its shape the best out of all the yarns Mom has tried.  Plus, it’s super affordable:  Mom can usually get a whole ball for $1!

🍂  Happy October!  🎃

October means Halloween is right around the corner!  What will Jack Shellington be for Halloween this year?


Kirby GRUMPs in the dead of night!

This is Tort-o-ween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of cute
It’s our town, everybody GRUMP
In this town of Tort-o-ween


In this town we call home
Everyone GRUMP to the tortoise song!  

Mom came home from her travels to an incredible surprise:  I now have more than 50,000 subscribers on YouTube!?!  😲😲😲  As is tradition, I broke out my top hat to shellebrate, and Brunhilda joined in!  🎩🥳🐢🦕

Of course, we also made a special thank you video:

Thank you to all our fabulous fans!  We are flattered and so very honored that so many of you like watching my adventures!  Shell hugs to you all!  🤗🥰💖🐢

Uh oh…it’s the Revenge of the Fifth!  Can I nom it?  Will it give me a tummyache?

May the Fourth be with all those racing today!

My homemade BB-8 costume is from Halloween 2016!

Happy Halloween, Tumblr!

Introducing … the cutest, grumpiest, and hungriest Bob-omb ever!  Did you know Bob-ombs run on radicchio fuel?  I was enjoying a delicious refueling when clumsy Mario almost ran into me with a Koopa Troopa shell!  @nintendo

Brunhilda and I had a most sparkly party to ring in 2019!  🥳  The video we posted earlier showed the beginning of our party,* but of course, the party didn’t stop there.  The afterparty was filled with insightful conversations, unexpected noms, and spiffy GRUMPs!  😮😋😤


Don’t you hate when the camera catches you with your mouth full?


Me, a messy eater?  Why would you ever say that?!
