DIY - floral arrangement
My Uni phoned yesterday and I was told her lovely sister will get married the year end! (It is released every time if there is a 10-year-old couple getting married!) Men are always advantaged while they grow old but not ladies...
I was invited to assist the wedding with some floral arrangement. It scared me a little bit... as it was more complicated than they thought - buying flowers in sufficient quatity before the wedding, arrange them, transport them, feeding them with water etc. I am sure most of you (the newly wedded) will nod your heads!
Martha Stewart has newly updated with some tips on floral arrangements. Hope it helps me and the other brides who want to DIY!
My pick: Lesson 4 | You know it only with the photos!
Dahilas i.e. 大理花 catches my heart! I handmade the bouquet for my maid of honor with this flowers as well. As they are big and bright, it is easy to make a perfect round bouquet with 3-4 flowers. That means CHEAPER!

My heat was stoned upon hearing the news that my craft show was cancelled due to rain... I tried to convince myself that if the market opened, there would not be customers as well.
It was heart breaking while I saw the earrings and necklaces are packed nicely and ready for sale...
So here I am using the power of Yahoo Blog, call for any venues / places which could offer me to sell my handmade creations!
For the others, please visit my Etsy! You will enjoy free shipping within Hong Kong and a 20% off for the 2nd item purchase.
I shall update my shop every day for new stock!

Monday I helped mom to move home. It was a bit sad to say goodbye to the "home" we lived for almost 10 years! It was the "home" where me and my brother grew. Lots of memories!
I felt so old... while remembering those good days. Also, my arms are so sore until now.
I have no motivation to create since Mr. Jujube is gone. Well, maybe he is my muse! Wahahahaahh

I love to mix and match crystals and gem stones for excitement! And the lovely "Summer Cocktail" has been my favorite at the moment!
I have to admit that I require lots of fresh colors and gem stones to inspire me from time to time! I won't have enough crystals for creation though my drawers and containers are packed :P
Summer Cocktail will be sold at the Craft Show on April 19 only. (I think this photo does not justify the beauty of the gem stones and crystals!) As a celebration for my new start on crafting business! cheers *

Shanti & Scarlet
Left: Shanti - teal rounds wire art earrings. | Right: Scarlet - cheery red rounds teardrop wire art earrings.
I have been a slacker for a while and here are the newly created from love.Jujube :) I don't have time to list them at Etsy yet... hopefully, they will be gone at the Openair Market.
These days Etsy catches the attention of Hong Kong media. It even has been mentioned at 新假期 (which I thought it is a very localized one)! This is the comment from the magazine's editor: "too many English at the websites and have to appy paypal for transaction..."
I understand English maybe a problem... (Should I blog in Chinese? But that will be really really S L O W!)
Application of paypal has been more important these days. I cannot understand major Hong Kong websites still require people disclosing their credit card numbers during purchases. It is not that safe after all!
Today I went Korean Dining at 金羅寶, Causeway Bay with my hubby! I was so happy for our "date"! I just enjoy Korean spicy and hot kimchi all the time!
