One Bite Iphone Case

I've been crazy with needle felt embroidery this past few days, it started with the Matryoshka iphone case, now I've created a new one!!! With more embroidery!!

This is what I called vector-to-needle felt embroidery! Inspired by vector art of Jerrod Maruyama, turned into needle felt embroidery!

I'm not that of a fan of snow white, comparing to other disney princesses, but when I saw Jerrod's work, I just couldn't stop myself from embroidering it.

I getting crazy with this technique! I wanna do another one!!!!!

Listen to your Body

Being in the field of health, we healthcare providers tend to forget this simple rule that we always advise our patients: LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.

When it comes to health, I don't believe in: NO PAIN, NO GAIN.

Pain is not your enemy, it's your body's way of saying that something is wrong, or that it's already too much, we need time to rest & to recharge.

We healthcare providers, tend to forget this since our patients need us, but we should not forget also the signals that our own body is telling us, since we can't help our patients if we ourselves are sick.

Just been reminded of this, I had a sever headache, but I have so many things to study yet, for the board exams, my mom forced me to rest, have a nap, I did, the whole afternoon, now that the pain is gone, with the help of rest + pain meds, I have to catch up for what I missed. =D

What happened to the old fashioned Pringles?

Pringles today are sacred here in the Philippines.  Well, since some supermarkets are selling those new pringles, they're thicker, smaller, & tastes like crap.  I'm not sure which country reproduced them, please stop! The problem is, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between the USA Pringles & these new Pringles.

To give you an idea on how to tell the difference, here's a link to a post

USA Pringles please come back...

Doctors are Creative too

I believe that every doctor has a sense of creativity in themselves.  After all Healing people is art & craftmanship.  Don't believe me? Imagine a person who had skin cancer & the tumor has to be removed, leaving a creater in your face.  Only the doctors will be able to repair it in such a way that you look like a normal person.  Here's just one example:

Storing your Wool Roving

My wool are calling to me, "Hey we miss you!" I think it's time to give them some loving again, I have to make a needlefelt project soon =D

I would like to share how I store my wool rovings.  I like buying those wool rovings that comes in packs with a combination of colors, more of like a trial pack, each containing 1 lb of wool roving per color.  I also have those that I bought with 2lbs.  I thought of how I can store them in a way I could see the colors at the same time. 
I got myself a bead organizer =D I bought this from my local bead store.

Don't worry my wool rovings, we will be together again soon.

My Monster Pet shop - Transmutator Experiment

With the new upgrade of my favorite game app in iphone: Monster Pet Shop, there were new featurres such as the transmutator, new backgrounds & giveing baths for your monsters, etc.

With the new transmutator, I decided to have a little experiment to see how fast will your monster grow if you use it, since you need 10 monster berries to buy it in the first place.  So here's what I did.  

I hatched 2 Skinny krakels at the same time.

Craft of the Day: Iced Coffee

Good morning sunday everyone! I saw a can of whipped cream at home, so I figured why not start the day with homemade iced coffee =D
It tasted good with the starbucks frapp caramel alone with ice, but it tasted better when I mixed the whipped cream.  I don't have chocolate syrup so I just sprinkled some Ovaltine powdered drink on top as garnish hehe.

Good morning everyone!

Craft of the Day: Egg Salad Sandwich

I was switching channels when I came across, Everyday Food from Lifestyle Network yesterday.  This is the first time I've watched this so I took it a shot.  I honestly don't know how to cook.  In fact, I'm scared of frying, because of the hot oil splatters.  Anyways, this morning I woke up early, 4:30 am, & since I couldn't go back to sleep, I guess I can make myself a breakfast.

The particular food that caught my eye is when they said that you can make the perfect hard boiled egg. The show made the perfect hard boiled egg & made an egg salad.

Microbiology most commons

To my fellow interns who will take the Philippine Medicine Licensure Exams this August, Dr. Borromeo gave me these microbiology most commons that he made.  Sabi niya he gave it to the secretary suring the review, parang wala kasi ako natanggap na copy.  So I told him wala po naibigay, so he gave me his soft copy, sabi niya, distribute ko daw.  So I'm using this blog to spread this.  But I will be deleting these files after the board exams in his respect.

Download these:

Good luck to our Board Exams!!! Hope all Thomasians pass!!

Cherry Blossoms Envelope Tutorial

I'm so not in the mood to study, so I figured to make a tutorial instead! I was searching through google to look for how to draw cherry blossoms, didn't find any tutorial simple for my simple mind haha.  So I decided I make my own cherry blossoms.  Since I'm not very good in drawing, I just used basic shapes: HEARTS!

Hope you like my tutorial.  Comments very much appreciated =D

Back to Basics - Color Pencils

As I was  looking through my cabinet, I came across this:
My old color pencils, way back when I was still in grade school.

Then I realized, I miss coloring with color pencils.... So I thought of playing with them.
Isn't this great?! I used a rubber stamp to stamp the bird image.  Then I took my color pencils to color some details.  Then I took my ordinary pentel pens &  ordinary colored ballpens for the minor details.  I love the results!

Doing something pretty out of ordinary school materials & using your old color pencils, you used when you were a child, brings back a lot of memories.  Feeling nostalgic already!
