Christmas--Update!!! :))))))))

Okay, so I also decided to post what I made for Christmas too! Mmm cheeeseeeecakkkeee. :P

Halloween Update!

So I've been pretty lazy...

I finished finals on 12th and have been on break since then. However, I don't feel well rested...I'm SO TIRED!!!!!! I've been helping Kevin move and working the whole week! I haven't been getting sleep either.

I know that Halloween was two months ago but I wanted to post some pictures!

Domo-Kun + Pumpkin = Domokin! (Yeah, lame I know)

Yeah, I know there is a "0" candle but that's the only candle we had. :( Pretty lame...

Dollhouse fun!

My plans for this blog isn't going where I wanted it to originally go, but that is the least of my concerns now. I'm not trying to neglect it, its just that I have a lot of school work. I'm in finals week right now, so you can guess where I'm devoting my time towards.

I wanted to start on a new project every week, but with my hectic schedule, that isn't going to happen. With the upcoming quarters approaching, it will only get worse.

I'm going to post some completed projects for you to look at (Yes, this update is for you Kat). This dollhouse was made by Susan, Lily, Leslie, Daisy and Tiffany and I during the summer. Haha. Yes, its been that long! It is charity to help raise money for Kermit's missionary trip.

Living room, this was made by Leslie, Daisy and Tiffany.

The picture is a little blurry, but it wasn't my photo because my camera ran out of batteries unfortunately. :( But I made the vanity mirror. :)

Bathroom, I also made the mirror. :)

A picture of the whole bathroom.

There were more pictures of the bedroom and kitchen, but I don't know where those photos went. :(


Materials used: Random arts and crafts stuff found at Susan's home

Update from my Blackberry w/ Domo Kun!

So I just discovered that wordpress has an application for blackberrys. I knew that I just had download it. Now it would be easier for me to update since I'm usually on the go anyway. But it is a pain to be typing on this tiny keyboard.
So I just found out that 7-11 is having a new promotion starring Domo-Kun! I've always liked this little guy since 8th grade. So it's sad to see that he's everywhere now. But I still like him! So I ran down to the local 7-11 and purchased several items. I have yet to find the slurpee cups though...

Energy drink, coffee cup and yes! A usb flash drive! :)

Busy, Busy Bee

I know it has been a while since I've last posted. I've been really busy with school and work. Since I'm occupied with school, I don't have time nor do I have the motivation to start on new projects. I have tons of uncompleted articles of clothing from the summer...and now my sewing machine is collecting dust. It's such a sad sight to see.

I'm getting ready to graduate by June of 2010 so I need to work my butt off and get the heck out of college--so I can move on with my life, relax and work for a year, buy a new car, go to graduate school to pursue my Ph.D.

From my last update: SF was super fun! I loved every single moment of it! I also took lots of photos which I'm not sure when I'll ever get to posting due to my busy and somewhat tiring life at the moment.

Wicked was really awesome. I left knowing my money was well spent. :) I was literally obsessed for weeks--and yes I got the whole soundtrack as well. Although I was somewhat disappointed with the King Tut exhibition...I was hoping I'd get to see a mummy. But the artifacts and treasures were absolutely stunning.

I'm tired now and must get back to studying...studying on a Friday night??? Sad....I know. :(

Another trip to SF and more wedding stuff...

Well, it looks like I'm going up to San Fransisco this weekend! I'm super excited! This is a "last minute trip before school starts again" but the real reason why I'm going up there is to watch Wicked!

Yes, I know I didn't take advantage of the opportunity while it was in Los Angeles.

I am also going to check out the King Tut and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs Exhibition. I love ancient Egypt. In fact I almost considered studying Egyptology but then Psychology came along.

In the end, both are now located in one of my favorite cities which also gives me a legitimate reason to go up north. :) I will go ahead and post some pictures of corsages and center pieces that we spent 3 hours making for the wedding.

Here is a daisy corsage that I made which I also got to wear! :)

Box of lovely daisy and orchid corsages

My favorite! <3

More orchid corsages!

I absolutely love tiger lilies....and I could careless about roses...

This is so gorgeous!!! Made by Aunt Wendy.

Have a great weekend!

I left my heart in San Fransisco

I know it has been awhile since I've last updated, but not like anyone reads this anyways. I've been super busy with work and helping out with Tiff and Jeff's wedding. It has been a long two weeks of wedding preparation and festivities! In the end, it was all worth the hard work because the wedding was a blast!

We basically stayed in SF for most of the time before heading to Napa Valley. This was the highlight of my summer vacation. :) You have no idea how much I love SF...

Center piece again, but this time enhanced with lame effects from my camera!

Aw, look at that...I'm last once again but I get my own row! :)

A Gift for a Future Bride

I know it has been a while since my last update. I have been busy vacationing and make new projects. Sorry for the lack of updates as I am having computer problems. I had to borrow Kevin's computer to upload my pictures, do some editing and blogging.

The reason why I am doing this project is because Kevin's cousin is getting married on September 6th. I am making her several items for the wedding. One of them is a garter belt. Since one of the color themes is eggplant purple I decided to go with a light purple satin to contrast with the deep purple. This is what I came up with...

I have horrible photography skills so the pictures don't look too good. Sorry! :|

Materials used: satin, thread, threading needle, elastic, lace and ribbons

A gift any Mother would love

Alright, I know that mother's day was awhile back. But this very project is the reason why I wanted to start this blog so I thought this would be worth sharing. I was thinking of a perfect mother's day present I could give to all the mothers. Flowers would be the most typical gift. However, I am personally against buying flowers as gifts. Even though they are absolutely beautiful, they die within a week or so. So I didn't want to waste my money going that route. Then I thought it would be neat to buy seeds and a flower pot so they could grow their own flowers! But, what are the odds of them actually doing it? So then I thought, "Hey why not give them flowers that they do not have to water and or maintain!". Those decorative flowers in the stores were way too tacky. So I came up with the idea of origami flower pots as gifts! So this is what I ended up with...

Materials: origami paper, construction paper, floral tape and wire, ceramic pots, styrofoam, decorative rocks (to cover the foam), hot glue gun (to glue the rocks in place), ribbons and charms.

These items can be purchased at almost any arts and crafts store.

A Proper Introduction

Okay so I wasn't able to post anything until...now. I've been super busy with school and work. After my spring quarter ended, I decided to take summer session at a nearby community college. I wasn't able to work on this project blog until now. Now that I'm finished with summer school I have free time to explore my creativity!

So, time for a proper introduction...

I’ve decided to create a blog dedicated to my personal work and projects (creations, reconstructions, photos, designs, etc) to share with the world. I want to get feedback, suggestions, advice and ideas on how I can improve.

My ultimate goal is to open my own e-boutique. However, I don’t have the confidence or skills to do that yet. So I will post my creations in my blog for the meantime.

Criticisms are welcome. :)

First Post!

I've decided to start portfolio/craft blog to store all my ideas, creations, photos, artwork, writings and anything else I can think of. I will be posting something shortly...hopefully.

I am writing a research paper for class, so we'll see how that goes.
