Earlier this year (i.e. about 2 weeks ago), I was chilling on my Tumblr, looking at the pretty pictures, when I came across tthis great idea for the new year. It's a mini daily journal thing. So basically, you just write a quick line about what happened that day. Then over time you can look back and be all reminiscent and whatnot.

So here's my version:

I was able to get the 4x6 index cards, used my handy dandy cutter to cut them, and then got a stamp and ink pad for the days [:

I didn't use postcards but pretty paper to separate the months. I had to firmly tell myself not to be an old hoarder and use them. Ha ha.

And I decided to use that box because i) it was the only one that would hold the cards comfortably and ii) I thought the "Day to Celebrate" was fitting. You know, try to make every day a day to celebrate. Yeah...kinda cheesy but still  :)

This is going to be fun. 

I have a doodle book which my friend dubbed "My Idleness Book". I started it a little over a year ago. On October 20, 2010 to be exact. So, here a three doodles from my book. I scanned them so pardon the quality.

Use Somebody
(Yes, I realized that it's "and how you speak".)

Boys will be Boys
Yup...I got boys on the brain. =P

Get Over It
Telling myself to stop obsessing over thing and replaying incidents.

That's it for now. I may not get the chance to post as often as I'd like - school has begun. Technically, I won't get freedom until mid-June. But I can't let that keep me down, can I ? 

And the invisible audience says no.

Don't know anything about him but I do know that I love The Show Goes On. I made a typography thing in honour of the song.

One in the air for making a plan.
Two in the air for perfectly sized 3x5 index cards. 
Three in the air for black pencil crayons 
Four for the chalk pastels. 
None for the trouble I went through to make the rainbow with those pastels. 
Five in the air for the song  itself.

*I had no intentions for that to rhyme.

Yesterday, I finished a bracelet pattern from my trusty book Mastering Beadwork by Carol Huber Cypher. The pattern was the Dewdrop Diagonal Bracelet and it uses diagonal peyote stitch. I had already made two and had the brilliant idea to do a 'line' of sorts - dewdrop bracelets in all the colours of the rainbow. Ha. I was so fed up with this one. I think I spent December making it. Gee whiz. And by the time I was done, I just could not be bothered to do the fancy toggle so I just used two snap things.

Then I looked at the first two I made and realized that my patience for these bracelets has been on a slow downward spiral. For the green, I did the entire clasp with the tab closure and toggle and made it all fancy with dangles. For the blue, I did the tab and the toggle but couldn't be bothered with the dangles. And now for the red one, I just went *steups* and sewed on the snaps. It's a good thing I didn't glue them on, but that would have been unacceptable. [=

So here they are, my line of Dewdrop bracelets.

Between yesterday and today I made a peyote ring. It's orange and I used seed beads and bugle beads from the first set of seed beads that I ever bought. [= It's even count peyote.

I'm experimenting with taking photos and using different backgrounds.

Below is a paper-glitter-craft thing that I did when exams finished and holidays started. Don't judge. Ha ha. I was under quite a bit of pressure. 

And there we go.
