Sewing Times

24 Feb

Hello everyone! A fun post today since soon it will be the end of my week-long break from school (sigh can’t catch a break). Anyways, I found some fun sewing kits at the Dollar store so I picked some up and just finished one. Man can’t wait to have a bunch of these just staring me down. Downside is that it takes about 3 hours to complete from beginning to end I don’t have that time at school so I guess the other ones I got will have to wait but I’ll show them to you guys once they are completed.

20 things before 20

18 May

Hello everyone! So I have a 20 things before 20 list which is a list I compiled of 20 things to do before I turn 20 this September (19 to be specific). I have some time before my birthday so this list is to help me go through things that I would never do if I didn’t have a timeline. So here is my list:

1. Finish my embroidery project.

2. Read Watchmen.

3. Buy an iPad 2… enough said

4. Go to Animethon 18 which is on Aug 5-7 this year. I will be planning to go for only one day I don’t think I can get off work that easily.

5. Finish Wa-loli Kuro outfit. I started this project 3 years ago and have never finished it better late then never right?

6. Obtain a mushroom farm… kinda like this:

7. Pay mum & dad $100 from my first paycheck as well as my brother $100 (cuz I owe him for all the lunches he’s treated me to) and for my little sister $40 (she complains that she doesn’t have money all the time). Hopefully this one will be soon. ^-^

8. Get a library card… since I’m an adult I have to go get my own library card but I’ve just been lazy to go get one… I will get one though.

9. Start Youtube videos… something I’ve been wanting to do since last year but never had courage or time to make videos and put it up. I will do it for sure!!

10. Determine birthday present wishlist. I know that the iPad is on this list for a reason…

11. Determine 2 year financial plan. Since I plan to go to Japan in the upcoming 2 years I have to plan to make sure that I have enough money while travelling and such. Thus this plan… it’s going to take a lot of brain power that’s why I keep putting it aside.

12. Stay a neat freak… yeah this photo really shows how much I need to stay a neat freak.

13. Continue to study Japanese and Chinese. This one I won’t be doing anytime soon until school starts in September. I will be attending a Sat language class in Sept.

14. Try out a different martial arts even if it’s just one class I would like to try something different. Perhaps kung fu?

15. Attemp yoga/pilates. I would really like to try this but I don’t have much money to spend it on a class (financial plan) so I will learn from a book/video from the library (need library card) or Youtube is a great resource as well.

16. Try food from Sbarro, Thai Express, and Taco Bell. I just want to get out of my usual going to McDonalds or Subway to eat. I never try different foods so here are three places great to try out my taste palette.

17. Go to a spa. I have never gone to a beauty salon so I would really like to go to one. Perhaps from Eveline Charles.

18. Go on a staycation. I am planning with my brother and sister that we should go to the car museum in Wetaskiwin and possibly the Aviation museum in Alberta. But other things for a staycation is attending Capital X (summer amusement park) and Heritage festival (showcasing different cultures from different countries) as well as Animethon of course.

19. Play Spyro: Ripto’s Rage (PS) and finish Pokemon SoulSilver (DS). I have not finished these games and would really like to for sure.

20. Attempt to make curry flavoured popcorn. I heard about the elusive curry flavoured popcorn and since there is not a big chance to come across curry flavoured popcorn I might as well make it myself.

I will be updating every time I finish an item on the list and there is no set order to complete the list as long as the list is completely finished before I turn 20.

Fun things

11 Mar

It’s cool to see what sort of candy is out in the world right now. ^_^ Point: I got some interesting candy from a friend yesterday and I thought I should share with you the photos. ^_^

     

Things I should be doing instead of blogging is plenty…. well off to work on some more stuff. Keeping y’all updated until the big day! Life ain’t going to get in the way of blogging!

Wonder if I should do a vlog before and after the festival?

Discovery

17 Feb

Another day = lots of things to do so I’m going to make today’s post a short one as I spent too much time on the other post that I posted up this morning.

I am cleaning out stuff on my laptop and thus the discovery of two photos that I would like to share. Shocking! I wonder what sort of photos?

  

As I thought they were last year’s Halloween photos. ^_^ The first one is a doll that is why my hair is all funky it’s great and the second ones concept is an asian Barbie. I had to make it dramatic with the bright pink lips. ^_^

Discovery days sure are fun. This is it for today doing a lot of sewing and such in preparation for Soba Bowl. Excited!

Re-organizing

28 Dec

Wow! It’s been a really long time since I’ve actually posted anything… I totally forgot to take photos of my Christmas presents so I can’t show them sadly. Ah well, I would like to introduce my new boyfriend though. ^_^

Hand-made with love!! Which is kinda why he looks a little weird… making him was quite fun just tiring because my sewing machine doesn’t want to work with me so lots and lots of handsewing… not as fun after a while. But I started on him yesterday and I got him done today. Yay! The pattern said that he would be a medium sized bear and when I look at him now he looks like a large size bear. Haha. I have other things that I have to make over the break or else they won’t ever get done. Other things are his family members… which is another panda bear which is a medium like him and then two small ones; a black and a white one… at least I hope that they are small. ^_^ Papa bear is going to be lonely for a while though… he took up most of my stuffing so I have to go get some more and I need to get the baby cubs eyes.

Other things that I have to finish are Domo-kun’s… and not just one lots of Domo-kun to go around. I semi-finished the seating pillow yesterday I gotta get a sewing machine and sew together the edges so that they look nice instead of edgy and not clean. Still thinking about what to do with the summer dress that my mom gave me… thinking about putting it as a high waist skirt or something like that and then I question how am I going to cut and restructure the thing? Well lots to finish so I’m going to get started. But at least my sewing area is nice and clean now!

Future Plans

30 Nov

Hello!

So this is just an update for my future reference.
After my exams are done which is Dec 14 I am planning to make a bunch of videos and post them up on Youtube and other things as well. Some of the videos that I hope to make are How to make your own tinted moisterizer, contouring, makeup looks, cheap holiday gift-wrapping ideas and maybe more but I want to update this blog everyday. As I can’t update my physical book everyday maybe I’ll post up photos of the physical book online as well.

As for the blog I will be able to write in more everytime and maybe one time there will be an essay. ^_^ Things that I plan to do over the winter break is updating my book and blog for sure everyday if I can, reading the samurai traditions textbook and preparing a pop culture and samurai traditions lecture for the upcoming new year, cleaning my room (that will take a day for sure), preparing for my new courses for the winter, finish sewing up the pencil cases that have been waiting since the summer. There will be a lot of sewing for sure, I have to finish everything or else I won’t get it done.

Later, there will be an update on how my day went and maybe a photo or two. I’m glad that I’ve stolen my dad’s Sony camera… maybe when I have a part-time job in the summer I’ll get one.

So that is it on the future plans… doing my best for the finals!!
