In today’s digital era, do you still print out your photos from holiday or special occasions? I did and still do. It’s just nice to have a nostalgic photo on your table when you are working or a good picture inside the wallet. So today, I’m bringing out the crafting with photo theme again for the last craft from the ice cream stick series, a photo charm that is so small that you can bring it anywhere.Continue reading →
A few days ago I saw a lady wearing a cartoon character necklace in the station and I thought it was kinda cute. But hey, why not make it funnier and more fun by using a real image of a person instead? I have 2 sisters that are very fond of doing jumping shots and I thought those shots could work well for this accessory. Of course you can use a standing (still) photo of yours but I think a shot with two hands up or any other gestures would make cuter necklaces. Let’s jump to the easy how-to!
Sakura season is over in where I’m living now actually, but because this craft took a bit of time (the waiting part!!), I can only manage to share this post this week. So, this is my very first spring in my entire whole life. I’ve been living in tropical 2-season countries for the past 25 years so I’m very excited with the transition from the cold winter to the warm spring season :) As a memento for my first spring, I collected the sakura flowers just as they are about to wither (they have a relatively short blooming season, only a week or two) and turned them into pressed flowers. They are pretty as bookmarks (oh yes, another bookmark for me!) or they are great for table display too!Continue reading →

Nothing beats the feeling of coming home after being away for some time. It feels great to be able to gather with the family and eat all the food you have been missing for (my to-do list whenever I visit a place always has something to do with food). So here I am, back home from Japan for a short holiday before the new term starts next month and I bought a few boxes of Pocky sticks with different flavors that are not available in my hometown with me (not the one I used for this tutorial, strawberry flavor is one of the most basic flavors). I love Pocky’s box packaging and thought that it could make a great memo box. Continue reading →
Readers who have been around here for a while may know that I have a penchant for bookmarks (which is one of the reasons why I still prefer book-reading to tablet-reading). So here I am again, making more bookmarks today :) Trust me, this is one of the easiest bookmarks you’ll ever made, taking less than 1 minute, excluding printing time (you know how printer works when it knows you are in hurrry). Think of doing some reading this weekend? Then take out your cereal boxes or cards and welcome the giant paper clip bookmark! Continue reading →

Hellooooo all!! As I have promised in my last post, today I and the other 6 fabulous bloggers will host a giveaway along with our craft posts! Every each of us is challenged to make an organizing-themed craft based on the provided supplies. I chose washi tape out of the bunch and came up with this simple washi magnet idea for menu planning. Weekly menu planning can be a chore but it’s one great way to not wasting food and money, easier grocery shopping and yes, healthier as you can review what you are eating for the week.
