Bazaar Surprises

Here are some of the things that people will see in my upcoming bazaar. I hope they will like them. Each piece is done with a lot of love, time and inspiration. Of course with milk and music too. Oh and a little bit of dancing as well. :D


I will still showcase my bestsellers- serving and dining spoon and forks, those colorful bag jewels and cute mobile twinkies.

Bazaar Preparations

I am currently preparing for my upcoming bazaar to be held on the first Sunday of September. I have been beading seriously since the start of August though I don't think I have enough for the event. A little bit of everything worked for quite sometime but then again I had to work and make something new, and when I do that, I feel like starting all over again. Aarrgghh!

Bazaars makes me crazy. I tend to do all my projects at the same time. Monday-Tuesday=bracelets, Wednesday-Thursday=earrings, Friday= rings, Saturday=bag jewels and Sunday=beaded utensils. The thing is.....can I be strict and follow? If only I will be able to follow my self imposed schedule, bazaar life will be so much easier. But what the heck! I'll be in the bazaar come first Sunday of September, prepared or not I think the bottom line here is to have FUN. And I will definitely have one!

Flickr Bug Bit Me

I know its a tad late but.....Flickr ROCKS! Finally I succumb to having my Flickr account. Not the techie person that I am, I bugged Din the whole night just to teach me how to use Flickr's awesome features. Now I can upload my own photos and arrange them in sets- what an accomplishment! Its still a work in progress though but I bet before the week ends I'll be able to upload all of my work's photos.

Lovin' My New Look

I have been searching and searching for my blog's look for the longest time, and now Im lovin' what I have done. I ditched my old template and opted for the simpler and free template found at My main reason for searching for that "perfect look" is not to compete with the wonderful pictures Din does for my creations. I wanted the pictures to speak for themselves, to be the focus of the entry. Thus I have been tweaking with the different colors and fonts available at and have finally settled for "this look".

Though I still have to add a few details, I know that this look will definitely be the ONE for a long, long time.

I hope you enjoy my new look as I have been enjoying it!

Happy Birthday Hanebe!!! Isn't it nice that for 16 days every year we get to be the same age?! I cant think of any other reason not to celebrate. That said...where would you treat me for lunch and dinner tomorrow? Haha! We pay :)

Welcome home too. After a hectic 1.5 weeks away, I'm sure you need a lot of resting and pampering. Oh, that begins at dinner tonight! Surprise!!!!!

Projects from the Heart

My version of the Tree of Life. I used aluminum wire for the basic frame of the necklace. Copperwire as the trunk and branches. Amber colored chips as leaves. This project was a hit and miss for a few minutes then I settled for the look that I wanted.

When my cousin Meg saw the pictures, she had it reserved right away. Glad that she liked it. Give me a picture Meg once you wear it. :)

This piece is my version of the Bird's Nest. I had a difficult time making this baby but when it was done, I had a big smile on my face! It was small (circumference of a 1 peso coin) and I had to manually make my coils. I used fresh water pearls as eggs. The earrings though really made the work a tedious task. But wouldn't yield a satisfying result if it weren't for the nitty gritty things. :)

Ah this my first freehand piece. I call it Morning Glory. I had fun twisting and making curves of the aluminum wire. When I got "the look" it was time to "sew" the beads on it. It took me about an hour to finish this. Not bad for a freehand piece. :)
