What Tarot Card Are You?

You are The Star

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

a flowering banana

This is the second one I made. I wasn't able to take a picture of the first one because I was in a hurry. I made it as a gift for a special girl who celebrated her graduation. This one is for a favorite god daughter who loves bright colors. The flowers are online patterns.

an origami flower

I used to indulge in origami (Japanese art of paper folding) when I was a teen. Here's a short video on how to make a flower. I'll try this soon!

New Monaco Variegated Colors!

It's been awhile since I last made a post. I've been so busy with work and have been able to crochet small projects which I have already given away as gifts. I haven't done any beading as well. Anyway, I went to my Monaco supplier and saw these new variegated colors. For some who start early on their Christmas gifts, these are the exact colors for Christmas. The price per 50-gram ball is still 95 cents each.

curlicue necklaces

I made these for a couple of managers who are my new friends at work. I was able to find more of the pendants but I still love the very first one I made and sold a few months ago. The one on the left is beaded with matching size 10 seed beads. The other one has metallic gold thread crocheted with 2 colors of size 10 threads.

Amethyst remembered

I remembered my beautiful needle-felted bear from a private swap with Andrea aka crochetdiva from Crochetville. I got her I think early last year. Thank you so much Andrea for making Amethyst specially for me. She's the most adorable tiny bear and I have kept her in a safe place away from prying little hands. Here she is.....

I got a new job!!!!!!

I will be starting on my new job on Monday. Hubby's boss gave me an offer I couldn't resist. I wasn't exactly looking for a job but this is so unexpected and a huge blessing. I will be working as a manager for his dealer sales in mattresses. I will undergo training with my new boss as the trainor. I'm so excited to be working again after 15 long years. I have been my own boss for as long as I can remember and it will be nice working for someone again and not having to worry about paying for rent, utilities and employees' salaries. LOL!!!!!!!

I will still be selling threads and other stuff as usual since I can still get online after office and of course during weekends though I won't have much time for crocheting and beading. I can still mail off packages on my way to work. I can't wait for Monday to come!

I am back!!!!!!

It was 2 weeks that I have been without internet connection. I miss everyone here specially my good friends. So sorry to have worried you, ladies. I am so happy to be back!!!!! I got several packages while I was away. I was able to do lots of crocheting and beading as well.
The first package is from Stacey. Thank you Stacey for the CD and the beautiful card. I got your package several days before my birthday. Thanks for remembering, my friend!

I got 2 packages from the Mania swap. First is from the doily swap. My partner is Trish. She sent me a beautiful doily in variegated colors which I love. I have kept it for now and will display it when we finally have our own new home.

The second one is from my best buddy Fiona for the accessory swap. You've outdone yourself, Fiona!!!!!! I love love love everything you made for me!!!!!!! She sent lots and lots! My friends from Joshua's school loved them too! Thank you so much, Fiona! I'll mail out your package soon.

The next are from good friends Monica and Jeng. Thank you so much ladies for remembering my birthday. Monica sent a couple of beautiful and elegant jewelry boxes. The kind that you can only find in expensive shops here in Manila. I love them, Monica! I will be putting jewelries which Mom passed on to me in those boxes. I'll remember you each time I see them. Thanks too for the wonderful smelling soap and candle and for the beautiful card.

Thanks, jeng for the Cd and the wooden beads which I have been looking for here in Manila. I'll find a good project to use them. Thank you, mi amiga!!!!!!

And these are some of the things I have made while I was away. I am also crocheting a doily using size 30 thread for the swap and a couple more. Oh, and I am happy to know that Mirand has gotten the bookmarks I have sent for the swap. You're welcome, Miranda! My favorite is also the butterfly.

I am also doing their Advanced Doily Along for the month of August. Below are a couple of pictures of the scrappie projects. I will be posting the ADAL after it's finished.

YAY!!!!!! All 3 done!

I rushed to finished these 3 bracelets since I have to deliver them this Sunday. The first one is of course the Amethyst cuff in a size 7". The second one I am calling Spring Garden bracelet. I used size 8 seed beads in 3 green finishes and the flowers are all glass beads with yellow size 11 seed bead center. Last but not the least is my version of the caterpillar bracelet. This one is made using size 6, 8 and 11 seed beads in 5 shades of red. After making the loop base, I added clear and red glass bead shapes for accent. This one took me the longest time to finish.


These were all custom made orders. I will be posting these at my jewelry site here.

headbands for jeri

I whipped these up for my niece Jeri. The crocheted piece is the same length and width as the plastic headband base. I used reverse sc's for the edges to give it a nice look. Both are made with Monaco threads.
