I taught myself to make Pocket Camp gifs…

…and I’m now making gifs of everything. For now, have these ones of Freya and Sprinkle enjoying my winter themed camp!

Gyroidite Scavenger Hunt #6

This will be just a quick lil’ Pocket Camp update, but today marks the start of another Gyroidite hunt, and this time all the Gyroidites are Toy Day themed! The aim is to collect as many Gyroidites as possible, which you can then trade in for Toy Day themed clothing.

Are you ready to get crafting?

Most of the limited-edition clothing can be crafted with Gyroidites, however some items like the Reindeer hat and the Red Nose must be crafted using leaf tickets.

There’s also a set of new Gyroidite goals for us to complete, and we have 9 days left to complete them all, with the end date being December 21st at 5.59am.

There’s plenty of new goals to keep you busy

As usual, the Gyroidites can be found on the ground and in trees throughout the different Pocket Camp areas.

I know I’m going to have fun collecting and crafting all the new clothes, and I’ll update you all later with how I get on!

Snow in Spires

Mayor Indie’s house with a dusting of snow

Today was the first day of the year when the snow began to stick to the ground! Spires looked magical covered in a dusting of snow, and I had so much fun walking around town, re-exploring the familiar paths which now looked so different in the snow.

Mayor Indie has also had a festive makeover with new red hair! She’s sticking with her yellow raincoat for now, but I might have to look into making some knit jumper QR codes for her.

My favourite spot in town!

It didn’t take me long to find both snowballs which were hidden throughout town. Today I managed to not accidentally destroy either of them, which was a first for me! I usually manage to roll at least one of them into a pond or river by accident!

I’ve never been very good at making perfectly proportioned snowmen, but this time I managed to make a perfect snowman on my first try!

I’m looking forward to playing Snowman Bingo throughout these snowy months, as I’ve never really played it in New Leaf before! (Shocking, I know, considering the amount of years I’ve been playing this game).

Snowman Bingo!

The town tree looked so bare without all its leaves! It’ll take me a while to get used to it, I think. Indie looked so serene just sitting there by the tree, and it made me marvel again just how wonderful the graphics are in this game.

The town tree has lost its leaves

I absolutely love winter, so it was really amazing to see my newest town covered in snow. I must have spent nearly an hour just walking round town taking in the views and visiting my favourite spots to take some festive photos!

Everywhere looks so pretty in the snow!

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing Spires covered in snow! I’m looking forward to sharing the whole festive season with you all on my blog, so stay tuned for more snow-covered Spires!

It’s Christmas Time at the Campsite

It’s currently ten days into December and I finally decided it was time to give my campsite the update it deserved.

Christmas is my favourite time of year, so it was wonderful to be able to decorate my camp to look as festive as possible. I went with two different themes- on the left side of my camp is a winter sports area, with ice skating rinks and a snowboarding arena!

Sprinkle is a skating champ!

I absolutely adore the little skating animation the campers do on the ice rink. Sprinkle has made the sweetest addition to my campsite, and I really want her in one of my Animal Crossing towns in the future! Just look at her go on that ice rink…. she’s an ice skating queen!

I can’t wait until the snow starts to settled on the ground again, it will make for some amazing winter photographs from the camp!

So moving on, the right side of camp is a cosy living area featuring a lovely Christmassy log fire and lots of tartan. All of the furniture in my winter campsite was won in last year’s Christmas events, and I’m hoping that as December goes on, I’ll be able to add to my decor with even more items from this year’s events too.

Even Camp Manager India is looking festive!

So that’s it! I hope you liked my Christmas campsite, and if you want to add me, my ID is 2337 9888 368. See you soon for more wintery adventures in Pocket Camp!

Check out this amazing fanart!

The amazing creator @brewsters-art-cafe on tumblr did this incredible piece of artwork for me for coming 2nd place in her autumnal giveaway! It’s myself in animal crossing form hanging out with Coco, my all-time favourite villager.

Do you love it as much as I do?

Welcome!

 

So this is just a little introduction about me to say welcome to my WordPress blog! My name is Indie, I’m 22 and I’ve been playing Animal Crossing since 2006- I can’t believe I’ve been addicted to this franchise for 12 whole years!!

I’ve recently gotten back into playing New Leaf after a bit of a hiatus, and with the announcement of a new mainline game arriving in 2019, I thought this would be a perfect chance to start up this blog and get back into playing before the new game drops.

I’ll be posting content from my 3 New Leaf towns, as well as my Wild World town in the near future so keep your eyes peeled for that! I can’t wait to take you on my animal crossing journey as we get ready for the new game.

Bring on 2019!

xoxo, Indie
