Customised Unity Candle

My girly is finally getting married and I’m extremely happy for her. I asked if she needed any help with her wedding and she only asked if I could help customise a unity candle for her.

I honestly didn’t know what a unity candle was so I googled it. She also helped by providing me with a picture of it.

So the rest was up to me…I bought the candle and the other materials and began the project…

Here’s the final product 🙂

This doodle is inspired from an art exhibition that I want to go to (but haven’t found time to go yet) and probably also from my colleagues, who seem to love birds…especially J who has many little cute birdies on her table. 

Pumpkin Doggie Treats


As usual, I have been busy with work again, so the only thing I’ve managed to do is to bake some healthy treats for my darling.

This time, it is pumpkin, oats and peanut butter treats. She loves it as always…hmm…but what doesn’t she love…heehee! 

I still have quite a bit of pumpkin treats though I’ve already halved the recipe. I must ask my “neighbour” if she wants some for her doggie. Or maybe I should just carry the treats along and share it with other dogs when I bring Ellie for a walk 🙂

Fresh Breath Healthy Doggie Treats

I have a greedy princess at home who LOVES eating.

So when I chanced upon this website which had a recipe that seems easy enough for me, I decided to bake it for my little darling. The only difference was that I used a silicon mold instead of a cookie cutter which I felt was actually easier to manage. Fresh Breath TreatsI know I should have chopped the parsley more finely. Fresh Breath Treats (2)Fresh Breath Treat (3)Nevertheless, my greedy girl loves the treat!

Note for baking dummies like me…
Parsley and coriander are different, though they look quite similar. The shape of their leaves are different and their smell vary. I only learned about this after reading this.

Four Leaf Clover Keychain

4 leaf clover keychainI had this idea of making a four leaf clover keychain in my head for the longest time. But as usual, I can’t seem to find the time.

Finally, thanks to the public holiday, I had some spare time. I cut out felt using my Cricut machine, stitched the felt together and added some green beans inside.

I know my sewing skills are simply terrible, that’s why I have been reluctant to invest in a sewing machine which I have no confident in operating.

Although the keychain didn’t turn out the way I had envisioned it to be (due to my poor stitching)…at least it still looks like a four leaf clover. Hopefully, it will bring some good luck to the ones who received it =)

Guitar Memento

My friend wanted to give her students a farewell gift. And after researching online, I thought it didn’t seem too difficult to make a polymer clay guitar memento. So I happily told her that I will try it out and make 10 guitars memento for her.

What I didn’t foresee is that making stuff with polymer clay isn’t really my forte. Firstly, I had difficulty gauging the correct thickness of the polymer clay. Also, I didn’t have a pasta machine to help me roll out the clay evenly and I had to use a rolling pin instead. Anyway, to cut the long story short, I made numerous mistakes and had to redo the guitars numerous times.

After the many trial and errors…these are the final products. Though they’re still quite far from perfection…it’s really my best already. Hopefully, her students will like it =)

Blueberries & Banana Yoghurt Treats

Blueberries and Banana Yoghurt Treat.jpg

I ordered this cute silicon mold online as I wanted to bake some homemade treats for my doggie, Ellie. But baking required quite a bit of time so I decided to take the easier way out first.

I blended plain greek yoghurt with blueberries, banana and a little manuka honey. Then I poured the mixture into the mold and freeze it. The process was really easy as I did not need to measure the quantity of any ingredients. All I needed to do was to taste it to ensure that it wasn’t too sour for my little princess…haha!

The final product was yummy! Ellie, her daddy and I all love it! It’s such a perfect and healthy treat for both humans and dogs!

 

Toothpick Holder

Toothpick Container.jpgI’ve always wanted to decorate a big Tic Tac container so that I can use it as a toothpick holder. However, I refuse to buy Tic Tac as

1) It is too expensive (especially the ones that come in a big container).

2) I don’t really like eating it.

But thanks to a friend S who gave it to me, I finally got a container to test out the idea. It’s really nothing fanciful. I simply used some acrylic paint and gold marker to decorate the container.

Now I have a new toothpick holder that blends in totally with the rest of my other containers =)

 

Art is Everywhere

I love taking photos of art when I’m abroad, be it wall murals, sculptures, signages etc. as they give each area a very unique flavour. I spotted these mainly in Jaman Mural Village (자만벽화마을) and Jeonju Hanok Village (전주한옥마을) in Korea…what a pleasant surprise I had!
