So I actually did have time to make the cherry headband and here is the finished costume during Halloween at work! It was a big hit and brought a lot of smiles from the kids and other staff so I'm very happy with the outcome :)

Halloween is coming up and I've been trying to think of a new costume to make for work this year! I didn't dress up for last year's Halloween since it was my first day starting at the new school and I didn't know if it would be appropriate haha.

I was clearing out things that I had put in storage a while ago and found this lovely stack in the middle of cleaning :) It's a great theme and I thought I'd take some shots of the interior!

One of my friends recently gave me a scrapbook that they never used! I'm excited because this one comes with page protectors which will be great for keeping memories in top shape. :) I'm still using my other scrapbook, which is basically a notebook so I'm still thinking about what I should do with this new one. Exciting possibilities!

I made a trip to Irvine last weekend and stopped by the local Daiso to pick up some goodies! There were so many good things there but of course I had to contain myself and only get (mostly) practical items!

Hi everyone!I've been having a creative dry spell, hence the lack of posts in recent weeks. Hopefully it'll end soon and I'll have some new things to share. With the school year ending, my work hours will definitely be shorter so we'll see how that goes. Maybe that'll give me the boost I need to start creating again :) Hope all is well with you!

I love looking at packaging and on the rare occasion that I find a delivery box with an amazing interior, I can't bear to throw it out! I received this one recently and knew immediately that it would make a great box to deliver a present once I reversed it.

A friend currently living in Korea sent me a belated birthday package and it finally arrived on Saturday! It came with a packet of stickers/stationery that I'm sharing in this post. Yay for adding more cute things to my collection!

A friend surprised me with some washi tape the other day! She got it from Claire's (who would've thought they sold this there?) as a set of 4. They call it paper tape on the label but it's the same thing. I can't wait to finally try this stuff out :)

For the past week, I've been working on a photo scrapbook since I've stumbled upon some old pictures from about 4 -7 years ago. Instead of using a regular scrapbook, I decided to use part of an old photo album as part scrapbook, part photo holder -- hence I call it a photo scrapbook! :)

So spring break turned out to be a lot more busy than I thought it would be but I did manage to squeeze out this quick project! My sister asked me if I could make a brush cleaning tablet for her makeup brushes. She saw a diy YouTube video (click here or see below) inspired by the Sigma Spa Cleaning Glove and I must say, it's pretty neat, plus easy and very budget friendly!

Hello again! I know I've been pretty bad at posting lately. Work has been very tiring and I haven't had much time to do creative things. But I finally got the chance to use a card blank from the Bramble Rose set! I just added stickers and a cute fortune I found in a fortune cookie to make it more personalized. I think it looks quite fun :)

It's been a busy couple of weeks and I haven't had much time to craft but I did drop by a Daiso on Friday when I was visiting Irvine with a couple of friends. This is definitely my most favorite Daiso (although the farthest from me!) in Southern California.

This past week, my students made these cute pipe cleaner necklaces for a Valentine's Day fundraiser for our class! Our lead teacher came up with the idea and I thought it was a great project to share with you all :) It's a really simple, three-step process.

It's that time of the year again! February is coming and with that comes Valentine's Day, which I really love because of the different decorations and specialty goods that come out. This year, I decided to get a head start on making my Valentines. Here are a couple that I will be sending off to friends when the time nears :)

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I haven't had a chance to do as much crafting as I'd like because of work and an upcoming exam on this Saturday morning (ugh...). I probably won't be posting anything until next week or so when I can get in some more time to work on things. After the exam, I'd like to start working on some Valentine cards and other fun things that I can't wait to share with you all :)
Until then, wish me luck and have a great rest of the week!

1. Craft with what I already have on hand.
I have so many supplies but I'm always tempted to buy more when I see something at the local craft store. I should really save some money and use up some supplies haha.
2. Send more letters and cards.
Although I love sending things through the mail, I haven't been doing much of that lately. I'd love to get back into the habit. Especially since some of my friends have told me recently how happy they are to receive something in the mail :)
3. Try some of the craft projects I've been saving up on Pinterest
They've been piling up and I still haven't tried any of them!
4. Stop hoarding stickers!
I have a hard time using my favorite stickers but I should really share the cuteness.
5. Draw more.
I've drawn a bit here and there but I would really like to do more of it this year.
Hmmm, I think that's it for now. Although I've only made up 5 resolutions, it took me a really long time to think of them haha. Hopefully I'll get them done!
