Wish everyone a strong Ox year.

Here you go, a lovely corner of my home. :-D

The magic blue

  Could you say what it is? I guess 99% of the ladies can quickly recongise it the the magical box of Tiffany!  I have to confess... I did once want to have light blue to be my wedding theme color as my engagement and wedding rings are both from Tiffany.  However, it is important to match the venue, to fulfill family's expectation (or limitation).  The plan was left behind.

It's a girl

Handmade card

My friend is expecting a baby girl soon.  She is my first friend giving birth, such that both mummy and me (Aunt Jujube) are very excited.  We had shopped at Tsuen Wan for some expecting moms' pants.  It was incredible that there were all kinds of pants, leggings, stockings and shorts for the expecting moms!  For those who may interested, the shop is called 孕十月 and it is not expensive at all.
More about the handmade card, I have used some purple tissue paper ("chow tse") to make the little dress for the lovely baby girl.  It is very easy
1) Cut the tissue paper in shape of a dress
2) Roll the tissue paper in rolls for the belt and twist them as roses.
3) Stick them on the card with glue / UHU.
4) Add in details with color pens.
Da-la, hope my friend will love it.

Dinner Plan

Dinner Plan
2009年1月12日下午5:01公開累積瀏覽 40
Before married, I didn't plan for my dinner.  I just ate what I got from my kitchen (mom brought food).  I didn't have a fixed dinner time as well.  I just ate when I were hungry. 
Being a housewife, dinner time has been the most challenging thing to me.  For the first week, I alwaysfigured out "there is no food in the kitchen" at ~5pm.  When I say no food, it really means NOTHING! Of course, both me and my hubby can dine out.  Yet it is hard to explain to Mr. that I have been doing nothing at home for a whole day… So I rush to the supermarket, buy some food and then prepare dinner ASAP.  This vicious circle did bother me a bit… Especially while I am wandering at the market and thinking the FAQ of the worldwide housewives “今晚食咩”…
Therefore, I took a little revolution in 2009… (i.e. after married for 1 month), I need to plan ahead for dinner. The fact is I plan for 5 day dinner and buy those ingredients during weekends with my hubby. 
Good thing is
1) I don’t have to rush to market every day such that I have more “free” time at home on my beading.
2) We can eat healthier, (I guess…) less noodles night.   
3) I don’t have to carry those heavy bags!  Yay*

New beads

New Beads

I have told myself I have to hand made.  However, I have a bad habit - I don't want to craft with old materials... (That's why my bead collection is mounting!)  Hence, I went to Shamshuipo yesterday for sourcing new beads. 
The same with another trip in the old days, I am amazed with those all lovely beads and gems.  I have discovered some goodies at the sale corner!!!  Some lovely juicy fresh water pearls.  They are genuine however Hong Kong beaders seem more fancy the expensive Swarvoski crystals.  I confess I have those crystals as well to frosting your creations.  Yet the whole bracelets are threaded with all kinds of crystals, not my style. 
I am very eager to influence you and to fall in love with those lovely fresh water pearls.  Aren’t they are perfect for wedding accessories?  I trust they can be goodies for a charm bracelets.
