avocado love

{open faced avocado sandwich}

had this for breakfast yesterday. so yummy! works well with wheat bread rather than an ordinary white bread. will try using wheat tortilla next time.

my little pink fairy

it's been a while since the last time i did pink saturday. been helper-free since middle of april. after 11 years, finally it's just "us" - our family. all five of us. yes, i asked for it. even if that would mean sacrificing lots of "me" time. blogging and sewing especially. i wanted to live simply and teach the kids to be responsible, learn to do household chores, and be independent.

anyway, on to this week's event. my entry is a thumbelina - yes that's what she said she is - costume that i made for my little one for her schools halloween party.

i managed to whip this up, 3 hours before the 8:00 am party. my plan was to let her wear one of her floral dresses + wings. but... creativity and sewing mojo came in early in the morning and so this came about...

she was very happy and been thanking me endlessly on our way to the party. the smile on her face... priceless!

she merrily joined the games like... pinning the nose on pinocchio...
 finding "under the sea" treasures...

and shooting apples inside the pumpkin...

thumbelina was very happy and filled her bucket with lots of treats from other parents. unfortunately she got sick after the party and mom did not allow her to enjoy the candies she got :(.

now, she wants a "purple dress with belt" for her. just like june's dress in little einstein.

it's nice to be back.

pink saturday :: hoola-la!

never thought i'd use this again. the last time i used one was when i was still in grade school. my cousin encouraged me to get one. she trimmed down her abs after using it regularly. after giving birth to her 2nd child, she had a hard time getting back to shape. her SIL gave her a 3lb hula. she used it everyday for 10-30 mins. i saw the result. i had to try it! so off we went to the sports shop and bought this.

hacking and liking it

i tried hacking for the first time.
i bought a plain green tee for $2.00.
ripped the neckline and snipped the sleeves
hem was snipped too
and further snipped into several pieces
to make fabric flowers
and to play first with other designs...
i kinda liked this...
until night came...
finally did this with some tweaks to add a personal touch
 and did this to all the hems

so here's me with my take...
on this J.Crew tee.

I'm linking this to...
