Headbands I Made

I remember when I was in 4th grade until early in High School, my Mama made a lot of bows, pillows, skirts, headbands at cute clips for me to wear and sell. She”s my inspiration. When she passed away, I felt that “love” or passion for these things v

anished. I lost the will to start making even just one, but I honestly still have the interest. Since I have been a SAHM for almost 4 mos now, I have seen how difficult it is to manage almost everything. Household chores, kids and finances too! That remaining interest in crafts and having 2 girls made me try and go back in what my Mom really loved. I am proud to have made these:

The Purple flower was an extra cloth from the skirt I made for Keanna. The Pink rose was a half yard ribbon I found in my sewing box and the floral (3rd photo) were trimmings from an old blouse. Keanna was so eager to learn the how to”s as well and was even planning of selling them to her classmates. The genes is becoming obvious! LoL! We had fun making these and having her model too.

These added inspirations came from a friend. My daughters love “em to bits! THANK you, Ched. These lovely bows were bought from another friend, Iris of Posh Baby. Now, I found myself planning and wanting to head over to a craft store in Divisoria. It”s about time. I guess my dreams about my Mama was an eye opener. It was her wake up call. I have been so lazy for the past few weeks and have not accomplished any. I have to prove myself. And I have to start right NOW.

I am by the way, linking up this post to these wonderful memes:

Pinterest is Interesting

I was invited my Mommy May of Nshima Servings to join Pinterest. It is like an online collection of your bookmarks. You get to “pin” what interests you and have them categorized too. Aside from that, you can f

ollow other people”s boards and re-pin their pins. I got hooked in an instant! I have made several boards already and pinned a lot. Here”s a screenshot of just 8 of my boards, there are few more boards I didn”t get to capture. LoL!

 

What I find interesting the most is the home improvement category in which I get to see and dream of having our own home beautifully. Pinterest also has thousands of tips in organizing, home decor and DIYs. I really love spending time in this new social media platform.

Find it interesting? Go create an account. If you need an invite, just tell me. Have fun pinning!

The Weekend Getaway

Yet another photo taken by my niece Jennilyn. This time, her model is her big sister Joan, an RN. I have already posted one of her shots HERE and I’d like to share a few more. This has her permission of course.
I played with the colors again using Photoshop CS3. Looking at it right now and comparing it to the original, I really need to learn a LOT. Ha Ha! I can’t wait to have my fingers clicking in my own dslr camera! I need to get opportunities so my dream would materialized. Right?
I love what Joan’s wearing, very colorful. And since it has been mentioned, this will serve as my entry to this week’s Colorful Weekend. Have a blessed Sunday everyone!
