Remember how bad I felt on the first day since I was not able to sit near the window? Well, God answered my prayer and gave me more than what I asked for, I SAW A RAINBOW! ♥ He never fails!

Last words about the trip… it was AWEsome! Great people to travel places with and super duper fun stories with a bit of drama in between. Coffee talks and more talks with long walks will always be memorable.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

Most of us associate geometry with buildings and structures, I do too. But when I looked around my room, I know I have a share of geometry and that would be my earrings collection! Can’t remember how many pairs I got, from the last time I counted it was more than 200. 🙂

Some of my fave, choose from circles, stars, squares, inverted triangles and more circles. Forgive me and my undying vanity ♥

I AM A BEAD-ER! WOHOO!

Funny how we miss the things we do a few years back. After all the stress, I guess I need a revenge where I am good at. Found this blog entry on my Multiply site.

BEFORE: Published on Apr 16, ’09 11:35 PM

I had second thoughts of joining this bead workshop. But then again, I was crazy thinking about it since I first read the info on my email from Powerbooks. I was really into beading even before… well, not all type of beading, I’m captivated by earrings specially. Like the big, long, beaded, chunky earrings. I really can’t get enough of them, I started wearing them when I was in college and I never stopped. My collection grew larger and larger and I have used them in all occasions.

I can’t really remember what year in college I started to buy beads and pliers. Then, when I was about to start, my mind would have so many ideas I don’t know how to start anymore. So they just piled up! And now, that I really don’t know what to do in my life, I realized I should start from my inner being and work my way to the top. This is just the beginning I know. Soon, I’ll be selling them and hopefully earn from them. I’m really really happy =)

I’m really serious now, when I attended my first class with miss Rosanne last Wednesday, I had fun. Although it turns out I was her only student. =) (we were supposed to be two actually) but that’s perfectly fine, it was a one on one class and I was happy that miss Rosanne was a really cool lady, as in.

We started with the basics of course and at first it was easy… but if you wanted to get more creative, believe me, your fingers will suffer as well. it was my first time to learn the proper twisting, how to cut the wire properly etc. but it was all worth it,
I so love the earrings that i made!

Love it! love it! love it!

Big thanks miss Rosanne, we still have 3 lessons! see you!

These are some of the earrings I have made after the lesson…

NOW: Aug 28, ’12 03:07 PM

I am ready to twist and turn again, someone suggested that I go back to crafting. Will take the advice 🙂 Mind you, I was able to sell a lot of earrings after I took the lesson above. Need to be ready to visit Quiapo and buy some pliers and beads so I can continue my earring passion.

Bless me Lord. ♥

O for Organized Accessories!

Imagine yourself all dressed up, only accessories missing and you can’t seem to find your favorite silver hoop earrings. You feel like dying any moment since your date is outside waiting. Well, fret no more… I found out a simple way of organizing all your “kikay” stuff. Name it, earrings, anklets, necklaces, bangles and bracelets, you can place them all here and do not need to worry about searching next time. Got this Two-Sided Organizer Hangs from OneOfAKind for P160.00 a piece and thankfully she is a good friend of my sister Lily Rose and she just lives near me so we just met the other day (no more additional costs for the shipping, yes!). Do not forget to check our her other items, earrings, rings and necklaces because they are cheaper compared to other online shops. So that’s a hint, do not waste your time browsing other accessory sites, JUST LET GO AND BUY! In the end, it does not feel guilty, I didn’t.

THE PROBLEM! Too much accessories!

The solution! Two-Sided Organizer Bags 🙂

This is how your stuff will look once you place them here.

Then, you can hang it freely on your closet! Such a space saver on your cabinet too! ♥♥♥

What I can say in 5 minutes

My mind goes blank for the first few seconds of my 5 minutes. One thought after another crosses my mind and before I can write it down it’s gone. However, there’s one thing that’s left, I want another work. Or a work that can make me truly happy. I need to make earrings again. Soon! Because I know that is where I am good at. Actually, I am at my best during “earrings making time”.

Need to follow my hearts desire for I am a bit lonely now. Lost in the middle of things and finding my way back to sanity again. Last minute for me now. My last word “Follow your heart too and write within 5 mins”.

It’s a powerful trick that will that can help you decipher what you really want to do in life. Happy Wednesday!

Ethnic Madness

One of the many things I adore in this world are EARRINGS! From the normal up to the weirdest ones! I had a huge collection and early last year I made a difficult decision. And that is to sell my earrings collection. Not all of them were sold because I gave some of it to my Dubai friends. I am a firm believer that if you want someone to remember you, you must give them a part of you that’s special.

Lately, I practiced being a minimalist when it comes to accessorizing. However, when my sister and I were looking for some Christmas gift at St. Francis Square in Mandaluyong City, I came over this unique shop. I have never seen such lovely and oh-so-ethnic accessories. My eyes were glued on a particular weird earring.

Pair # 1 The upside down pink wooden earring: Who would not fall for this Beyonce type earring? If you are just wearing a plain black dress or a white tee, making this a partner will turn you into a head turner! (I am super hooked on this one, I am wearing it right at this very moment)

So, I thought that was it! But wait, there’s more! I saw another one!

Pair # 2 The armored earring: Ready for battle? If Cleopatra was alive, she would love this one I am sure. Wearing this on a formal occasion with your pearl necklace is no failure!

Done! I talked to the saleslady and said I would pay for it, while waiting for my change, my head will not stop turning. My sister just sat down a chair because she knows deep in her heart she can’t stop me from shopping earrings. And my eyes became bigger as laid my eyes on…

Pair # 3 The Mother of Pearl: Talk about shells and all that stuff, I can imagine myself walking in the finest sands, with colorful dress, the wind on my shoulder and these dangling earrings on my ears of course. So to close the deal, I ended up buying 3 pairs. I didn’t feel any guilt! These are additions to my wonderful collection. NOW, I changed my mind, I will not sell the remaining earrings that I have, I will keep them for real!

And just when you thought it’s really over??? IT”S NOT!

I got two new additions to my ethnic madness. I decided to buy myself a new year’s gift.

A funky bracelet that states “INSPIRE”. I chose this one since it will set as a reminder that I must be a good example so that I can continue to be a blessing to other people lives.

Last, a reggae anklet which will constantly remind of Bob Marley and the saying “Don’t worry, be happy”.

So what did you get for yourself this 2012?
