Florentine Punch

Finally bought the ChristinaRe Florentine Punch I was looking at for awhile. I wasn't sure how often I would use it but I really like the design. Just tested it out on a paper torn from my Jetoy Diary.

Ribbon Ring

I made a ribbon ring! following the instructions from Whrrl.

I used a leftover piece of ribbon I found lying around the house.

Using a lighter, I burnt the frayed edges.

Folded the ribbon in half..
And sewed roughly along the length of the ribbon.
Pull needle and thread to scrunch up ribbon and sew ends together.
Add bead or embellishment of choice in the middle of the flower ribbon.
I used a 5cent piece to cut out a felt circle.
Broken hair lucky! (2.25")

Glued hair lucky to back of flower ribbon and felt on top of that!

My first ribbon ring :)

How to make a cup coaster

My crocheted cup coaster

Picture from Meet me at Mike's

Today I bought a 2.5 mm crochet needle and two different coloured yarn. I followed the Meet me at Mike's tutorial on How to make a simple pot holder by Pip and created my little cup coaster. This is my first crocheted piece so there were a few holes at the start as I missed a couple of stitches but I got the hang of it as I went further along.

I stopped at at round 5 of the tutorial and made mine into a cup coaster instead of a pot holder!

Bookmark made at work

This is a miniature thoracic spine xray that was printed incorrectly at work and made into a bookmark! I didn't have a lightbox viewer at home so I had to hold it up to the light! Have you ever created something at work?

Minnie mouse costume

This year has been the year of dress-up 21sts!!! Tonight I have a Fairy tales & Animations 21st to attend and I decided not to spend a hefty amount of money on renting a costume so I decided to make one. I thought Minnie mouse would be a easy one to do because I already own a pink dress with white polka dot. I just needed to make some ears and a tail and voila! I bought some black velvet material to create my Minnie ears and tail and I had some pink lining material lying around which I made a bow for my ears! The gloves was borrowed from my friend who made them, there's four fingers, to make it more authentic!

NOVEMBER 6-8, 2009

I attended the Lomovember exhibition held by Pigeonhole to raise money for Movember; a charity for men's health (especially prostate cancer and male depression). The exhibition is held at 104B Murray Street in Perth city. It is hidden away in an alley way next to a florist shop! There is a display of some lomo photography that is up for grabs in a silent auction as well as prizes and lomo cameras and moustaches for sale. If you're interested in some lomo workshop/classes, click here for more details.

Miniature Kitchen - Doll house

I was looking for printable paper doll houses to build with Monica and I found this Japanese Site which lets you download pdf files to doll houses. For PDF instructions (in Japanese) click here, and the pattern can be downloaded here. I chose to build the kitchen which is meant to look like the image below.

I decided just to print off the furniture and not the roof and wallpaper to save paper/ink and we re-arranged the kitchen to our liking. Our finished product is seen below.

We didn't have a ceiling and Rob suggested a straw to hang the lamp off.

I really like the sink, it actually goes in and has a drain as well.

The fridge can be opened and has milk and other food products located inside.
We used a cereal box for the room wall and floor.
