Orangetree Happy Creation

It has been about 3 years since I started my hobby on 'bling-making'. I have made several friends who have the same hobby and found many treasures (gemstones, lampwork, bali beads etc) during my bling-making journey. Totally fun but expensive too.

Something I made yesterday. A very easy project. The lampwork bead is simply awesome! This is a long necklace with lampwork bead as focal, lots of crystal bicones and a cute teardrop phrenite. The chain itself is rose gold from Shiana LLC.

And Bubblegum Sugar is now listed on my etsy!

swEeT DisTraCtioNs

Work work work - Something which I am rather loss in words these days. I don't even know how to describe it. I hope God gives me the serenity and strength.... please.

Beautiful things are my sweet distractions. They are a form of support to me - mentally and emotionally.

These are some of my personal favourites! More favourites can be found on my etsy site. First picture below shows the artwork of Ms Jodi (JodiStyle). She uses colourful painting style which is so artistic and cheery. This picture gives a feeling of hope and happiness... (Something which I am terribly lacking now)...

Next on the list:- Cute Owl Top. How much cuter can it get? This is so sweet! Found at KachingDesign

Lastly, for non-handmade stuff, *evil grin* it must be my favourite korean drama. Well, that's a bit off topic. Simply LOVE "Coffee Prince", it's every girl's dream to be the lead female cast in the story. Totally fun and romantic drama serial. I finished 9 episodes in less than 2 days' time. I was crazy. Here's the beautiful MTV, taken from YouTube:-

Today is THE Day!

Today is the day, a new year, a new beginning....

Frankly, life is the same for me. Nice breakfast of tea and toasted butter kaya bread in the morning. Window shopping in such casual mode. Beautiful weather - breezy, cooling and cosy. Oh yes, there is a 'smell' of cosiness in the air!

I never made any new year resolutions in the past. But this year I have one... To cut down on my unnecessary spending. I bought a lot of stuff last year - watches, bags, wallets, jewelry etc. I love them but I know they are not essentials in my life. It's not reasonable to expect myself not to spend totally, so I hope I would at least cut down on such spending.

And I made something a few days back. It's called Tranquility. I plan to make more cos I love this design. ^_^
