You Guys: *Turns around* SWIRL!
Me: *Stops and doesn't move*
You Guys: SWIRL, WE- er, what are you doing?
Me: Um... you... can't see me?
You Guys: No, um, preeetty sure we can see you.
You Guys: Anyways, as we were saying... SWIRL, GOODNESS, WHY DID IT TAKE YOU THIS LONG TO ACTUALLY POST AGAIN?!
Yeah, uh, sorry about that! I had quite a bit of stuff to do last week, and I've also just been kinda out of ideas lately.
But hey, guess what- it's a 5-day-weekend for me! It started on Thursday, but, uh, yeah!
So POSTING TIME! XD!
First off, I suppose I'll start with showing you this Masterpiece I've been working on!
I know a couple of you know what this is, but for those of you that have no idea, this type of Masterpiece is called a Friendship Quilt! The original idea was made by Ocean8Froggy- basically, you design a Masterpiece that looks like a quilt, and all of them include borders with patterns, stitched hearts in the corners, your main animal and pet in the center, and your animal's paw prints in the top center with stitch marks around them too! The rest, like the colors and patterns, are entirely up to whoever makes it! A couple of us bloggers thought this was a great idea, so we went ahead and started making our own versions!
And, as you can see, that one up there is how mine looks so far! I have to say, I'm very proud of how my wolf turned out, and I even made it my new Blogger profile picture, as some of you may have already noticed, XD!
And, if anyone's wondering about the pattern I started on the right border, it's going to be an Owl City themed border, filled with music notes and pictures of things that were mentioned in Owl City songs! The wing is from Up All Night (although now that I think about it, it'd work better with On The Wing, XD!), the bug is from Fireflies, and the flower is from Plant Life (although he mentions flowers in plenty of his songs, XD!) Gonna add more soon!
Okay- now that we've gotten past that, how about we do something I've been wanting to do for a while now?
I'm going to be looking back at... *lowers voice to a whisper*
Cringey beginner-blogger Swirl.
Know how I always say that you guys should NEVER look back at my super-old posts? This is the one time I'm encouraging it. XDD!
*Rubs hands together* Alright then! Prepare yourself!
By the way, the red underlined/circled/boxed parts in each picture are the parts I'm going to be referring to!
However, I'm not sure she thought about if OTHER people had figured it out on their own.
Favorite part: "YES FOLKS< (oops, that was a typo, haha!) YOU HEARD IT RIGHT!"
*Facepalms and laughs*
I... I don't know what I was thinking in this. 😅
Safer Internet Items? How on Earth would AJHQ make something like that?!
What items did I think would be released- a "Safer Internet Table" and "Safer Internet Chair" or something?
I need to draw this, guys. I need to make up and draw some "Safer Internet items".
#2. *Tries to keep from laughing*
I... *snickers* I'm pretty sure they've been to Aldan before, Young Swirl.
First... I think I spelled it "shirits". XDD!
And second, XD, it, uh, seems I was REALLY worried about sounding mean. I mean, it's a true fact, I guess- I apparently DID end up trading those shirts away for "Betas", but I guess I figured it sounding like scamming. Oops, ehehe!
XD, I was such an odd child
#2. ACK NO DON'T DO PUNSSSS!! XD!
THAT WAS AN AMAZING APRIL FOOLS JOKE.
I'M SURE EVERYONE WAS ABSOLUTELY FOOLED.
And it seems I loved to use "LOL" back then, huh?
Great job- absolutely the best wording you could've used, Young Swirl.
*Shakes head* I'm so confused at how I changed so much, guys. XDD!
Yeah, um... Young Swirl wasn't exactly the smartest. XDD!
I guess I just really liked bouncy houses back then or something? *Shrugs* XD!
LOOK YOU GUYS!!!
THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED!!
THIS IS HOW WE ENDED UP WITH THE VERY-ODD TRADITIONAL SWIRLSHINE INTRO WE HAVE TODAY!! :O
The original one, uh, wasn't very good though. XDD!
Aaaaanyways, that's all I've got for now! It's, uh, really late now... XD!
Until next time, remember to party hard, be kind, and jam on, and I'll see you guys later!
