New feather earrings

I went gaga over the first season of Pretty Little Liars because I liked the story. It was something new: who killed Alison? Is she still alive? Who was A? However, when I finished reading all eight books by Sara Shephard, I mainly watched PLL because the girls are too pretty and their individual fashion sense rocks. It was fascinating to check out what clothes they wore and what accessories they have. I was especially blown away by Aria's feather earrings...

...and so I thought that if I find the perfect feathers I'd make my own pair. I'd like to think that I am artsy-fartsy like dear little Aria Montgomery. I have previously made three pairs and posted them here, but I wanted to make something more fabulous.

Here are my latest designs. I hope to add more over the weekend. Enjoy and indulge in my feather fashion passion!

Wanna pop out from the crowd? Wear these yellow green and brown  feather earrings.
Feather trapeze: these black and red feathers serve as the perfect complement to these hoops made of coral, shell, glass, wood, acrylic, and seed beads. The five-inch chains dangling off the hooks give it a funkier and edgier vibe.

Martha Stewart blows me away. She's so nifty and crafty (which I also am) and so neat and organized (I could use a lot of help here). I just love her ideas. Watching her show makes me happy and so inspired. She's one of my craft heroines. How I wish I could be just like her (except for the part where she was sent to prison).

Martha Stewart: she's a good thing!

Decisions decisions

So I have decided to devote my time mostly to my craft/s (I am now just learning to bake). I am about to quit my job and just be that quirky creative person that I always wanted to be but never got the courage to really be (get that?).

Well anyway, I should now be blogging more often as I am expecting to be able to produce more items. I am also going to incorporate mini tutorials for those who would like to learn how to do these stuff that I have been tinkering with for years.

Cheers to my decision, to my blog, to my creativity, and to my passion!

Summer summer!

I love summer! I love the sun, sand, and sea! Everything is just so colorful when it's summer. I am always inspired to create beautiful accessories when everything is sunny and bright. Take a peek at my summer collection.

Sweet and bright pastel colored beads make pretty elastic bracelets that can be worn in stacks of three.

The month of May: organizing and decluttering

As usual, I haven't updated this blog for a long time (as if I have a lot of followers who would miss me! eyes roll...haha!) Anyway, it's the last day of April, and May should be an exciting month for me.

I had my e-store properly designed, and I am formally launching it tomorrow (although it still needs a lot of tweaking). This is a one-woman store you know, and I do everything from designing to taking pictures, etc...I'm glad that I found someone who can do the site for me and who allowed me to advertise on their Facebook page and have my products used during their photo shoots (I know! Isn't that great? Gives me a lot of exposure). I am hoping that my business would soon take off and that it would soon be stable enough to support me. I'd like to be able to focus on it, but I still can't do that for now. So til then, I am all the manpower that I've got. I really have to be able to organize and schedule my activities well so everything will fit within 24 hours (I have a day job too.)

Another thing that I am looking forward to is having a work station FINALLY set up for me (yes!). Apparently, my mom got tired of having to shove things off the dinner table and kitchen counter where I work (no, beads don't get mixed up with our dinner, but the table cloth has suffered a lot of snags and frays due to my tools, wires, and pins hehehe), so she told me that she's having our spare room re-done and I could incorporate my work station. Yay! I am looking at installing a lot of small shelves to hold all my beading supplies, plus a place with adjustable lighting for when I take my pictures. Kaching! Kaching! I can feel a whole starting to burn in my pocket, but it's really a good and wise investment. Aside from the fact that I'd have my own space, it should solve all these back, leg, and eye problems I have every time I make my accessories. I do a lot of sitting, standing, slouching, and squinting in my current work area that at the end of the day I feel sore all over. Gotta think about ergonomics when I design my work station, and maybe when it's done I can share  a picture of it here.

Well, cheers to the month of May!
