my CREATIVE space 29 July 2010

My creative space today …

is a whole bunch of cut-outs to make 2 really pretty bags with really pretty fabric :-)

Now, I’m only missing a 14″ zipper.

{p/s: my de-stash SALE is still ONclick on the icon on the right —->>>> }

I have all the other zipper sizes…16″, 8″, 6″, 5″, 20″, 36″… but noooooo 14″. Now frustrating when you need them!

Visit Kootoyoo for more Creative Spaces!

Here’s also the photos of the 2 bags I made few days ago.

Made from Japanese cotton and Japanese Tenugui (japanese towels). One of my absolute precious fabric.

I want my cake!

Yeap… that’s the title of this post!

I’ve been craving for chocolate moist cakes since last Sunday… yesterday was a disappointment because my sister promised to bring home some cakes and when she came home… NO CAKE !!!

So today, we’re going out to get the cake!!!!

Meanwhile, I am the happiest girl at home today… beeee-cossss I got new stash of fabric {enough to share some in my shop!…}.

Currently I’m crazy over ballerinas…

Some updates …

I’ve started sewing again… {with my machine}… I realised I got too used to using the “hand button”, that today I decided to use the stepper (is that what we call it?), and my hands and legs just don’t coordinate well. I don’t know if you understand what I’m trying to say hahaha… Oh well, I made a few bags with my very limited Japanese tenugui fabric . Will post photos later, as I am too lazy to get my camera out now.

My SALE is still on at http://WhimsyLoftShop.blogspot.com. Daily I will list a few items… one of them will include this beautiful Japanese cotton. I only have 1/2 a yard though…

Ok, for now, have Happy Monday everyone!

ALOHA !!  nooo.. I haven’t been to Hawaii… but I wish I could :-)

The past weeks has been crazy! Filled with preparing for this very very important presentation for my day job ~ the BIG DAY is tomorrow. Fingers cross, that the “panel of judges” approve us to present our strategy to the board… this will bring a lot of savings to the category *fingers cross…please please please*

Back to some lighter {and craftier} subject, I’ve been making lots and lots and LOTS of my kawaii sticker tapes!!! Love them, and they are easy to make.

Thank you Joanne for commisioning me to make these for you :-)

Meanwhile, I haven’t stop my “spring cleaning” yet… it has been going slow, a little at a time… and before I could finish another section of my room, I’ve managed to mess up the one I cleared earlier 😛 *hah!*

But something good came out of this… I will soon have a “jumble sale” online… of all the unused goodies I have been stashing in my craft room !!! How about that? Look out for it ya…
