Daily Count Challenge to katyastarling.

Sorry this comes late.

My best friend visited me from yesterday until today morning. Sadly still no words BUT I managed to create 5 banners yesterday morning for a Challenge. I also got some new shoes (no fun to find shoes for women in 11 US size / 9 UK size / 42 EU size) and changed my stockings for my Cosplay for next Saturday Comic Con. It's little but I still call this success. (Especially because of my Cosplay. It looks more like AoU!Wanda now than before. So, yay. *bouncy*)

I'm passing the (late) torch to katyastarling. Good luck and have fun. :o)
