Full White Outfit Of The Day !

Hey everyone! So sorry about not updating my blog. It has been more than a week and I really couldn't find anything to update yet due to the busy schedule. Today's post would be a fairly random one. Here goes.
This is my outfit for today! It's patriotic day and the girls are to wear either white or yellow while the guys wear red or blue. I decided to go all white! You can't see it, but even my earrings are white buttons!

And this is my hair yesterday! It was done up by Shaujin! ♥ That's Ling Wai in the picture.  
Ling Wai recently came back from Singapore and got me this ! 
Mini chocolate molds! Thanks Ling Wai! She also gave me some kitty cat stickers which I didn't have a photo of! I shall post that later on.

Well, I really do not have much to say today. Here's a little penguin to send you smiles!
Bean bag penguin at Rm60 in Mini Toons! ♥ How adorable! Feel like adopting this little fella.
Okay! That's all for the post today! Thanks for dropping by! I promise to hunt for more things to update!

Billy The Bookshelf!

Hello there! I love this picture taken by Tiny Scribbles!
That dress I'm wearing there is also my new favourite dress! Anyways, back to today's post. I'll be talking about a new 'family member'. I call them (yes them, they're twins!) "Shelfie" !
On Sunday, my parents and I went to IKEA to hunt for my new bookshelves! I just randomly thought of bookshelves for my crafts one day and googled IKEA. Right away, I fell in love with the Billy Bookshelf 80x202. Yes, I know it's named Billy in the tag, but now I renamed them "Shelfie!"
When I got home, I immediately starting planning where everything goes. It doesn't turn out exactly the same, but it's pretty similar. ♥
With my new bookshelves in the house, I have been reorganizing all my craft materials and shifting them from my room upstairs to the karaoke room (now my craft room) downstairs. 
 Other than the Billy Bookshelves, I also have some new craft stuff!
The first picture (left) above shows my stash of patterned paper. And on the second picture (right) is my friend's. Recently, my friend went overseas for her studies and decided to dump a bunch of heaven into my territory. Yeap! All those on the right are now mine too!
And together, they look like this. All squashed up in a house of box like sardines.
Patterned papers are just one thing. Here's some more! The top left picture shows my stash of coloured paper. Bottom left show my friend's, and on the right is both of them together, now belonging to me! Oh dear! I'm a happy girl! Who could ever run out of pretty papers in my house?

There are tons more goodies which I received in the box of 'heaven', bucouldn't post them all up here. They were quite messy and I didn't bother taking that many pictures of sorting them out.
Lots of my stuff have now moved down and my bookshelves currently look like this. It has been eating a lot don't you think? I like how it looks. So pretty. Some of the red boxes there are actually still empty. Not all, but some. My room was such a mess moving all these things around.
Tadaa! I made my parents take a picture with the plush carrot and broccoli! My dad was very reluctant knowing that I would probably put it on Facebook or something (Which I did not. I just so happen to put it in my blog and link it to Facebook. That's all). I kept saying that once in his life, he would need to do something silly or fun! I manage to get this shot and am very happy with it! Yay! The dad even said "I don't want to eat my broccoli" then when he carried it. How adorable.
And tadaa! Took this picture because I've always wanted a rocking horse but never got one before. Although this is a moose and not a horse, it would have to do. End.

Handmade Button Accessories

 Hi everyone! I haven't been posting as often lately, but I believe I will be posting more during the raya break! Anyways, here's a little something new that I forgot to post about previously.
Check out my hair! It's got that green touch to it! I actually went to dye the inside part of my hair green with blue ends, but the blue didn't turn out. I will be going back to dye the blue again soon. I love how the green turned out so far. This hair was tied by my good friend - Xiang Ting. *clap clap*

I miss my crafts. I haven't got to them for about one month already. Recently, I just had to do something crafty, and decided to make more button crafts. I came up with this unique kind of earrings where the it would come from the back! I love the result of it.
Adorable eh? For now it would just be buttons due to time limitations, but soon after, I'd probably have clay charms hanging from the back too! I can't wait to work on it!
I've also been working on new button bracelets
I love these picture, especially the yellow one with dried leaves and flowers. It fills the picture more and makes it look better doesn't it? I'm still thinking of how I can take nicer pictures of my crafts. Any idea? 

Well, that's all for this post. I will be making another post later at 12am!

DIY Baby Plush Carrier

 Hey people! Remember Alarice from my previous blogpost?
Remember that I carried her in this adorable pastel colored baby pouch? Today, I'm going to show you how I made it.
 This is my first time making an outfit for a soft toy, so I kinda did not know exactly what to do as well. I started by laying the Cupido down on a piece of felt blanket.
 I then used a marker to mark where his legs were and cut holes for them.
 After slitting the hole and putting Cupido's feet in, I added some velcro to keep the back in place.
 I went through my random button collection and picked two off the stash.
 The sewing begins. I adjust the length of the strips and made them crossback.
 The excess were cut off.
Tadaa! And it's done! The extra carrier strings that I hang on my neck were just extra fleece blanket pieces with hooks.
A couple of pictures with the baby! That's all. Bye!

7km Marathon Neon Run , 45 Minutes

Hey beautiful people! How are you doing this morning? I just had a really good 6hour rest! I'm surprised that I actually slept pretty early yesterday. The whole day was so tiring, but it was truly worth it.Why?
I just ran my very FIRST marathon - Emerge Neon Run 2012! Best of all, it was a 7km run and I manage to finish it in 45minutes!!! Really glad with my result and am already excited for the next run. My legs though, commands me never to run again. But too bad, the mind always win. Cheers!
Registration started at 5:30am and the race started at 6:45am. It was a battle with the mind where you have to keep saying that you can still go on. Throughout the journey, I kept looking towards the sky and trying to brainwash myself that the race is easy and there's just a little more to go.

 The happy peeps with their medals!
Amy Soo and I at my place after Emerge Neon Run 2012!
That's all for today's post!! Before I go, let me introduce a new friend to you!
Say 'Hi!' to my new baby! Isn't she beautiful? I can't wait to go for basic classes then start working on projects with her! Alright, that's all for today. More shall be posted soon. Thanks for dropping by!

Supermom Is A MOM!

 Hey guys! How's everyone doing? I have something pretty interesting to share. And yes, it's regarding being a MOTHER! Surprised? Well, truth be told, I have this superb assignment where I had to be a single mother for 7 days! Sounds like a pretty odd assignment doesn't it? Oh well, it's for families studies after all.
 This here's baby Alarice before I decided it shall be a girl.
And yes, I do know that this is Cupido in which the girl should be Cupipi. I didn't have Cupipi, so I thought of just going ahead and transform Cupido into a girl.
 Dresses! The first one looked pretty odd but the second one is fine. Only problem is that it's too long!
 And so, I shortened the dress by adding a elastic band inside. This will be shown probably on my next blog post. See the hook I'm holding there? It's a baby pouch for Baby Alarice. This too, will be shown on my next blog post.
Look! Baby Alarice won the baby beauty pageant!
 Hanging out with Baby Alarice. I've been bringing her out with me quite a lot. Even to church when competition practices were held. Well, it was a fun experience. I took quite a number of pictures and I believe I would be able to score really high for this assignment! Yesh!

1. Movie outing with baby
2. Baby and her friend (Shaujin's baby)
3. Shopping for Baby's shampoo !

Tadaa! Such a mommy me. Well, that's it for today! Thanks for dropping by! Tata!
