Back to my sewing mojo!

…or maybe just because I need to! 😀 (with much pleasure of course!)

I promised Audrey that I’ll make her a bible cover when I’m less tied up with my work. Erm, that was exactly a year ago! HAHA. I kept procastinating till she is leaving KL for good. Miss Audrey is going back to her hometown in Sabah for 6 months before heading to UK to further her studies.

This was my second attempt in making the cover, the first being too small and the second being too big. -____- Major fail. So, one tip I’m gonna give is that it’s much easier to have the “book” with you, so you can make adjustments where necessary. Audrey had to get her domestic helper to make the alterations when she went back. BOO. But it was all good in the end, so I’m happy 😀

Gonna miss this girl so much for sure 😦 She annoys me sooo much but she’s also one of the few ones who really share the same wavelength with me! Lol. #goawaybutdontgo

Btw, the easiest book/bible cover tutorial I found in Pinterest, available here if you are interested.

Three Checks by Jan

Had a mini reunion with my childhood buddies, Jan & Tasha with their plus ones yesterday. We go wayyyyy back in primary school. In fact, Jan was the first friend I had in my life! Jan and Nick, her boyfriend was back in KL for CNY celebrations and she was kind enough to make me this! 😀

An architect based in Sydney, Jan does quite a bit of craft especially typography! I loveeee her work! ❤
Go check this talent out at Three Checks and if you love these earrings, you can find them in her Etsy store!

Thanks Janny, hoping to see you again very soon! xx

World Cup 2014 – Ole Ole Brazil!

We’re already at the Elimination Stage of the World Cup – Brazil vs Chile now. It’s a pretty interesting World Cup because most of the big teams (i.e. England, Italy, Portugal, Spain!!) have been eliminated in the Group stage leaving Brazil, Germany, Argentina and France to fight it out with all the other dark horses. Who would have thought countries like Costa Rica, Greece and Belgium would go through? Lol.

The goals are also in abundance averaging about 3 goals per match! 😀 As my favourite team (read : Spain) got eliminated early, I’m watching it with lesser stress, just appreciating all the beautiful goals and passes! Absolutely love the sport!

Also, I did this! 😀

Definitely not what you get if you go for a manicure, but heck, I’m very very happy with the outcome! ❤

Viva la Espana!

Markets @ Jaya One – Easter Extravaganza

Some weeks ago, I attended a fashion & food bazaar in Jaya One organised by ChicPop. I first knew about this event in Tongue in Chic during my college days and since then, I attended almost all of them.

It happens every 3 months and it features various vendors ranging from hipster fashion stuff to pre-owned collections to vintage dresses to online entrepreneurs to crafty stores to food stalls! This time, they had a swap party for a minimal RM5 participation fee and you can swap whatever you want at that allocated area. I didn’t participate at the swap party because it was too crowded and the good stuff was gone by the time I wanted to go.

It was a pretty hipster place, I must say. So, if this is your thing, you shouldn’t miss the next one!

Of course, my favourite part of the entire thing is BARGAIN SHOPPING!

A Postcard from the US

My friend, Chloe sent me this because she knows how much I appreciate things like that! 🙂 I was having such a horrible week when the card greeted me in the morning with my name written on it! What a lovely surprise!

I asked her why did she take so much effort to send me a handwritten card all the way from US and she said..

“Because I appreciate the friendship”

Aww 😀 … and sometimes we live for simple moments like these. Life gets tough someday but beautiful and sweet gestures compensate for that! Thanks Chloe! I appreciate your friendship very much too!
