I ended up doing some trades for Mermaid DIYs and some Pearls after getting a Pearl again from Pascal today. I’ll still need to try and find Scallops for the clothing, but I just couldn’t deal with the extra randomness. If it was just 3 weeks for the DIYs and Outfits and Pearls afterwards, fine, but getting two peearls in a row when I had one DIY and none of the clothing made me really sad.
I don’t mind dealing with a random order to earn things. I just mind when there’s a bunch of things that are clearly just there to pad it out and make it take longer.
Regardless, I ended up putting a pearl here. I think it looks nice. I would love to put the Pirate treasure chest over here too. I have some ideas on how I could decorate this little back area with some of the pirate stuff that could look nice. Maybe I’ll also add some barrels.
I also made a second Mermaid lamp just to put right here and honestly, while I thought it would look nice, it came out a lot better than I expected? Kind of considering if I should place them other places on the island… No idea where though. I don’t really have much room lately.
Making the Mermaid set ended up taking all of my Sand Dollars… It’s nice to see them have more use at least.
I received a Frozen Tree for second place :)
I ended up getting a Screen– it was the order design I really liked and had been planning on ordering too so it was really nice.
I ended up getting 416K, 1 Conch, 3 Pitfall seeds, 1 Stone, and a gold present that had 10 Star Fragments in it. Between this and Diving, I think I may finally be okay with bells again. At least until more housing upgrades come… I need more storage and bigger side rooms :( (and I’d take more rooms in general).
With the festivities over, it was time for more diving! I didn’t have as much luck today (WHERE ARE YOU SEA PIG, SPIDER CRAB, AND RED KING CRAB…), but I did get two new things between Meg’s and Risha’s islands!
I’m up to 31/40 now :) I think the thing that really gets me though is that I found so many of both of those immediately after finally finding one… It really feels like there’s some “new” ticker I need to hit before even having a chance…
