One more month before winter. I thought I still have time to prepare for it. My kids’ new winter jacket I ordered online is still on its way. I just ordered them last week thinking winter will start on December 21st anyway. I am also planning to make lots of beanies to sell but I guess I’m already late. Coz guess what, it snowed today in Arkansas!
It’s so cold outside and it feels like winter started early! I am suppose to go run today for my daily exercise but I don’t think my body can tolerate the cold weather. I know I can if I just gear up correctly but the problem is my running shoes are not for winter. The cold will surely kill my toes! I think I need to buy a new one if I plan to continue running this winter. I’ll probably buy myself a brand new pair from Zalora. They have a quite a nice selection of running shoes for women there.”
There are so many things needed to be done, I am not ready for winter yet. I hope it won’t snow that much this year. Don’t get me wrong, snow is fun but it’s also killing me.

So I saw these new trending DIY shirt cuttings in facebook and pinterest. I also saw some of my gym mates wearing it so I decided to create one myself. I looked some shirts in my closet but most of them we’re my favorites, coz you know I am a t-shirt person but ofcourse when it comes to working out in the gym, t-shirt is my least favorite to wear. First of all it’s not comfortable and it’s going to be hot once you’re body is all worked out. Luckily I got this free shirt from one of the fair downtown last week. It’s black and the design is awesome too! So here’s what I’ve come up with ….
From Tshirt to racerback top!
Here’s the simple steps…
I hope you liked it guys like I do. It’s very easy and very comfortable to wear while doing Zumba! Try it and share your ideas with me!
My kids are so crazy about MINECRAFT. They saw this creeper stuff toy in Barnes and Nobles and asking their Dad if they can buy it unfortunately, the Dad didn’t approved but bought books about minecraft instead. So, I figured it’s just bunch of squares so I tried making one and below are some photos of the finished product.
My kids loved it very much, I asked them to just take turn and share but it didn’t work for so now I am working with another one but instead of green, my daughter liked it to be PINK. I am actually excited and can’t wait to see the finished product. Will post the picture soon!

Atlast after long months, I finally started crocheting again. I was busy with our garden these past few months so I am not in the mood for crochet. Recently, I have to stop gardening, not because I’m done, but because I don’t have enough resources anymore. (hahaha). So no other thing to do but to go back to crocheting for the meantime and here’s what I made so far….
Mickey Mouse Hat with ear Flap
A customer ordered this for a 2 year old boy but his size is like my 7 year old boy. And that explains why this hat fits on me.
Here’s another oner project I finished after the mickeymouse hat. Black and yellow bag inspired from the one I saw in one of the crocheting group I am in. I always wanted to do some fashionable bag like this so I am happy I finally made one! It’s supposed to be mine but the daughter said she like it so now I think I have to make another one.
It’s fun to crochet, but it’s kind of addictive coz once I get started, I won’t stop until I get bored. So now, I am working on another project that I haven’t done before. I am excited to show it to you guys but I won’t tell you yet what is it (just incase I fail).
Just incase I forgot how to get hat measurement, I am reposting this chart i got from google….

Head circumference 22 : 3.14 = 7.00 inches. Now you know your circle needs to be 7 inches. To get the correct height (from top of crown to bottom of the ear) you divide your circumference by 10 and multiply this number times 4.
Head circumference 22 : 10 = 2.2 x 4 = 8.8. So the hat height should be 8.8 inches. Hats are generally made about an inch smaller in circumference than the circumference of the head. This keeps the hat fitting snug and to keeps it from falling off. Most patterns generally have about an inch stretch to them.
As a Disney Movie Club member, I got 4 different Lithographs as a reward when we bought Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy and Frozen Blurays. It’s 8 by 10 size and will make a cute decor in Kid’s Playroo but Elisha wanted it her room instead. So I thought of sticking it on her wall with sticky tact but it looks bare so I told her I will buy frames first. Few weeks later, lithographs have been sitting in my artroom coz Im prioritizing the things that are important first then I finallyI came up with an idea this morning that saved me some money.
I remember making the same kind when I was in highschool. I can’t afford to buy a frame so I made one for myself that time.I love how things I created before are getting back to me little by little. Reminding me how I can make stuff without spending too much and satisfy you with an awesome outcome at the same time. I love how my resourcefulness kicks in when I need it! So, let me share this simple project …enjoy!
1. Wall Sticker (or any kind of paper you have or even fabric (gift wrapper, old clothes, etc)
2. Cardboard or old boxes
4. Ribbon or Yarn (or whatever is availble for hanging or you can simply just stick in in the wall without it. Elisha’s theme is more like girly with bows so most of her decors have bows in it)
5. Ruler and 6. Board Paper (with a size of the frame you’re creating for the base)
1. Cut your cardboard in whatever size you want that fits the picture you’re going to put.
2. Wrap the cut out boards with your chosen wrapper ( I used Wall Paper Sticker)
3. Lay the picture on the paper board. I used folder because I don’t have any board paper that is bigger that 8 by 10 picture.
4. Position the cut out board as a frame and glue them onto the paper.
5. Lastly, attach the ribbon between the base and the frame so it won’t be visible from the back.
And voila!!! I made my daughter very happy for having an instant frame that matches her Bedroom theme… Zebra and Pink!
I have pending projects I needed to finish in my porch but It’s been raining for 2 days in a row and I missed gardening already. I tried going out when the rain stopped but I cannot resist the cold weather so went back in and think of something to do and came up with painting idea after all my house chores for the day.
So here’s what I’ve done for today aside from the FAMILY TREE Hand Paint project I did as well at the same day….
And voila! Easy Pissy! Hope you like this project, don’t forget to like and share!
I have been planning to make a Family Tree but didn’t have any idea what kind so I looked up on Pinterest and saw a lot of awesome ideas. There are so many stuff to choose from but I chose to do an easy and simple idea – a Black and White Family Tree Hand Paint inspired. Here’s how to make one….
Materials: Canvas (whatever size you prefer), Black and White Paint, Paint Brush (big and small), Pencil and ofcourse, your FAMILY’s hand prints.
Paint your canvas BLACK all over, let it dry for a few minutes.
Once paint is dry, draft your Tree and start painting it with WHITE PAINT. (I added some leaves on top since we’re only four in our family and it wont look good if there’s only 4 hand prints.)
After the tree trunk is done, you can now start taking each of family members’ hand print.
I hope you liked this project, please don’t forget to like this post or share in Facebook! Enjoy!
