Cosa Nostra Headdress

We're having our Intern's Party tomorrow.  It's a themed party, Mafia/1920s fashion etc etc.  This will be the ONLY intern's party I will be able to attend to.  Well the other parties? They're usually on the date I'm ON DUTY so no choice but to stay in the hospital.  Anyways I'm excited for tomorrow.

I think that I won't be buying a dress for the party, well, because I think that flapper dress is not my really type of fashion.  So I don't think that it will be practical for me to buy the flapper dress just for 1 event.  I'll just look into my old wardrobe & work with it.  Hehe, I'll be posting the pictures tomorrow.  Right now I'm from duty, so I couldn't detail what I'll be wearing tomorrow. Just watch out for the full get up.

I was 1/2 day today, luckily! So I stopped by at Trinoma to look for any accessory for the party.  I'll just invest on accessories since I won't be spending on the dress anyways.  Well I searched through landmark, I was tired, & I only have limited time to snoop around.  I bought a hairclip, & I was looking for feathers but no feather inspired accessory fit for me.  Luckily I was able to find a pair of earrings w/ feathers that have the right length that I want to.

So.... I converted the earrings etc etc, scrap ribbons, etc etc, my scrap here at home & here's my finished product

I'll tell you the details of how I made this later... right now I'm sleepy, 'til next time!

Lumpia Festival

It's my most anticipated time of year in the chinese calendar.  The day I personally call "Lumpia Festival".  This is the time when we honor our deceased loved ones & we eat vegetarian food, Lumpia!!

Recipe of our Lumpia was handed down from generation to generation.  No written instructions, purely verbal & training handed down through generations.  Preparing is also a very tedious task.  It takes around 2 days to prepare for the Lumpia, everybody loves our lumpia.  During this time of the year, we share them through our friends as well. And all would have the same comment "Masarap siya!" Gawa pa kayo nito, then I'll say, sorry you have to wait til next year, because it's only prepared 1x/year.  Then next year, I'll invite them to enjoy lumpia & no matter what their doing, they'll really adjust their schedule just so they can accomodate their appetite to indulge in our Lumpia.

Ready to eat Lumpia!

Pearls in Mangoes

With the holiday, I had time to make the MTO I turned down before.  I really like to make this project, I guess I'm just a very hard-headed crafter.

What I like with this project? They're very elegant hehe.

Needle felting with swarovski accents

I was browsing through facebook, then I came accross this page:

MEET: Angela Andrews of Woolly Duck

I was inspired by her cupcakes!  So with that inspiration in mind, I now am pumped to do another MTO from Dra Dizon
I hope she likes it, it's my first time to try my felt twister
Turned out great hehe.  Hope she likes it.

Come to think of it, this is supposed to be for her daughter, but now that I've finished the cupcake, I think it's not suitable for young kids, she might swallow the rhnestones! Oops... will make another one is she doesn't like it. hehe.
