Okay, first I want to warn you that this post will be shamelessly filled with my old ID photos, please bear with me (^^); I took a lot of ID photos for visa, exams, passport and other related documents and you know how most of them requires the “at least 3 months old” photos. I did cheat sometimes but sometimes your new hair length just won’t let you cheat.
I usually use the self-service photo box and it always comes with 8 pieces of photo and most of the time, I just use 1 or 2 of them and the others? Stuffed inside my drawer collecting dust. I keep one photo from every print (just to see how I age overtime LOL), so I’m looking for ways to use these old ID photos and came up with today photo pins and magnets! They are great for memo board and chore charts and very easy to make too! Continue reading →
I got this glow-in-the-dark squeeze bottle paint during a craft supplies’ sale period last month but had no idea what to do with it (it’s a bad habit of mine, purchasing things without further thinking what I would do with them). Browsing back to all the crafts I did, I stumbled upon thisexperimental dried paint projectfrom last year and decided to add a little mysterious and fun twist to it with the glow-in-the-dark effect. Just in time for Halloween! 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 →

So you must have been or are busy preparing and wrapping gifts for Christmas lately. And what comes after? Yeah, the cleaning part. You may be tempted to dump all the leftover wrapping paper and tapes and twines into the dustbin but, Wait! Keep them somewhere safe for this post-Christmas craft!
