Crafty Hearts

I am preparing for the upcoming craft fair. As it is a Valentine's Day Market, I plan to have some little hearts as embellishment. It is so fun to make it with Hearty Clay and have these little crafty hearts.

It can be a charm on the gift, a bookmark, or even a tiny card. I did not make a lot of it. I still have to cut out all those earrings cards and sort out the packaging matter.

I am on Bead Trends magazine

I am pleased to receive this glossy square shape magazine to kick off my handmade life in 2010.

I am on Bead Trends Dec 2009!!!

I have been looking for the book in Hong Kong since Christmas. Obviously, Page One no longer sells this. But the Bead Trends are still available in ALL major magazine and book stores in UK and US.

It takes like a year to produce just a little piece of beading instructions, to contact the editor, emailing back and fro, couriering creations, taking photos etc. But I am happy with the result. Having Chinese as my mother tongue, I think I did pretty good as a contributor. :P

Romantic vintage

I have been stalking Lobster and Swan's blog for sometime. She is an amazing artist! Reading her blog and photos is piece of joy every day! It inspires me a lot.

Such that... I have bought some vintage jewelry findings for my new collection in 2010! So excited.

For more vintage goodies,

I love this rustic blue tackle box from postroadvintage, Fire King tableware from jaditekate and digital wallpaper from Cath Kidston

Yummy Scones

I've watched Martha Stewart's Today Show and tempted to make some scones! My hands were inched and quickly made some for my tea and C's breakfast tomorrow. Of course, jam making is a must to go with these freshly "baked" scones!
Yes, it is specially "baked" since I do not have an oven at home. I simply put some foil on my non-sticky heavy duty pan with saucepan and "bake" it! The result?! Fab*

Currently Reading

Currently I am reading
1) Chinese Knots for Beaded Jewellery It is so hard to have the strings go the the desired position. But I am having fun. Westerners are more fascinated by the art of Chinese knots.
2) Martha Stewart's Housekeeping Handbook
I am not that traditional to be a perfect housewife or putting myself in a socially fitted gender role. I just love reading the smart tips in the handbook. After all, I want to spend least time to kill housework and more time for my jewellery.
I wish I could have some input to 2010! And I guess the first book did influence me to make "O".
