take a breather

uh huh. i need to take a break from my usual manic manufacturing mode. my shoulders and neck are killing me. but i'm pretty satisfied with my lastest collection of kanzashi flowers.

i bought me some satin ribbons and japanese chirimen fabric and had been in a whirlwind of making these cute flowers.

the blue hydrangeas headband is still a WIP. i'm waiting for my green ribbons to arrive.

the pink flowers may be turned into individual hair pins/a single large updo pin.

i can't think of what i want to do with the rest. dang! i wish my hair was the huge long curly mass i had before so that i can put my hair up and wear pins in the bun. aiyah!

speaking of green ribbons, i asked the DH to help me procure them as he was in Shanghai during the weekend and these were what he got.

how exciting! i'm glad he did the shopping cos he chose exciting colors. actually they were what was left over in the shop. these are 5 cm wide ribbons and pre-ordering was actually required. anyways i'm glad he bought them cos if it were up to me, i'd probably get only shades of pink.

i can't wait for him to come back and hand them over. he is still somewhere in china. :P it's hard to track his travel route. he keeps changing hotels. hahaha!

right now i'm craving some tea. teh O!

manic monday

day 1 of the bazaar passed and i am tired! OMG! i'm so not cut out for tending a stall/shop. 2 more days to go. i hope tomorrow will be a busier day(in terms of sales of course). i'm glad i have a friend and the DH to help out cos we do all need our tea and pee breaks. tomorrow the DH will go off again so it's only my friend and me.

a fellow stall holder suggest that i try the red dot museum instead. she says it's all hand crafty things there so the crowd may be more recepient. but the situation here today is that there wasn't any crowd. so unlike what i remembered many years ago. boo...

we got our new washing machine on sunday. it's so water conserving that i don't even see water in the drum! at least the older machine looked wetter despite being a water conservation model as well. i keep suspecting that the new machine is faulty in it's water estimate, and my cloths won't come out clean. hmm... this problem needs to be resolved.

kanzashi obsessed

i've made a few hair ties from patchwork cloth which can be seen at my shop. this one that i am brogging about is a result of my sakura obsession. i've tried it make it as close i can to the tsumami kanzashi that represents april. wanted to attach some falling petals but i think it's a bit too much for daily wear and on a hair band.

the pink was color in using water colors so they will run when wet. eep! thinking of getting some fabric dyes instead but i don't want to get a large bottle of 1 single color. do they have palettes?! hehe.

so i finally saw the SATC and really liked this bag. but apparently i've read some reviews and quite a number of people hates it. :P i do rather like the flamboyant things.
wouldn't it be cool if someone were to get it for me. ha ha ha!!!
anyways, i was at Coach Taka today and tried this on. actually i didn't see this color there but the blue was quite nice. or black. or bronze goldie. or pink.

itsh sho comfortables. i covet. but since i already have a similar, i have not more quota for bags. booooo!!!!
this looks quite nice too. love the greens.

can you imagine? my cloths are already so colorful, and i like even more colorful bags. and shoes. and jewellery. i'm afraid i'm going to turn into and obiang 30 year old. aiyoh. must try to be more stylish...
