Crochet Rose Brooches

I love making these beautiful rose brooches.
Each embroidery thread from Anchor or DMC makes exactly one rose.
So it is so convenient to make in so many colors and I don't waste the yarn too.

About a week ago, a lady from Canada asked me if I can make 15 roses for the nurses who took care of her grandpa before he passed away.
It was such an honor and I made them in 15 different colors.
I really hope they'll like them.

Do you see those little leaves?
They were such a pain to make them. But I kept trying new patterns and I think I've found an easy way to make them.
I'll share with you when I have more time. (:

If you don't know how to crochet or just don't have time to make them, you can purchase those from my Etsy Shop for only $8 plus $2 postage.
Right now, I have 25% off coupon, so you can get it for $6 each! (:

I hope you had a great Christmas with your loved ones!
I'm excitedly looking forward to new year! (:

Gorgeous Crochet Edgings on Skirt

The best thing about having a big sister who can crochet is..well..I don't have to do it myself!
(And she does it way better and quicker anyway..)
My sister crocheted this beautiful edge for me on my oh-so-short skirt.

I absolutely love it! (:
I've been meaning to crochet the edges myself for awhile, cos I really love that skirt.
But I guess it must have "shrunk" over the years and it flew everywhere on windy day....the disaster...

 She used crochet hook from Sharp Crochet Hook for the first row and did 5 rows of beautiful shells.
Now, my skirt hangs nicely and it doesn't fly in the wind anymore, which is always good, isn't it?
I like how the weight of the yarns weigh down the soft skirt nicely.

She's crocheting edging on another skirt now (lucky me! :D) and I'll share with you when it's all done ;)

Enjoy your weekends!

Ombre Earrings

Hey everyone!
I made these 2 pairs of briolette earrings. One in ombre blue and the other in ombre green.

The green one reminds me of beautiful autumn leaves.
I'll just post the product photos here, so you can see the colors better!
It was so hard to get the earrings in focus when I was taking them on me.

I really love the colors and I'm so happy I got my hands on those beautiful briolettes!
It'll still be autumn when I go back to Australia next month and this just reminds me of all the beautiful autumn colors that I'll get to see!

And here are the blue ones! Blue will always be my favorite thou - cos I'm biased like that! ;)
You can check out more photos on my Etsy Listings:

I just spent my morning making this beautiful rose bookmark for a customer from France.
I hope she likes it! (:

Have a greatt day! (:

New Items for Heart Stone Collection

Hey everyone!

I just added new designs to my Heart Stone Collection!
It is my favorite so far. I love how simple it is and it lets the beautiful heart stones shine.
I made a blue pair for myself.

And here are the rest of the colours currently available in my Etsy shop.

I have 2 more colours coming up, so stay tune! ;) 
You can view the rest of my Heart Stone Collection HERE.

I hope everyone is doing well. 

My finals starts this Friday and I have basically been preparing for it. I'm just glad most of my exams are open book, but I know I still can't get too complacent *sighs*
Last week, I spent 3 days working on 19 pages long lab report...and I fell sick after that...I really don't like that kind of pressure. I did make these earrings when I take a break from studies thou. So I guess I still had a bit of fun.
Mitch was a great help too, always keeping my company while I worked on it. 

I am soo thrilled that my Facebook Page is close to having 300 likers! (:
But then, I realized only 10% of them see my posts (stupid function on Facebook...) unless I pay to promote my posts..
I'm not sure if it's worth it..what do you think?

It's Monday tomorrow, although it doesn't mean much to me since my classes are basically over.
I still hope you'll have a great start to your week!

Resin Roses

Hey everyone!

It's Friday tomorrow, so hang in there!
My Fridays are normally pretty lazy ones, but since I have 3 papers due next week, I guess I can't get a lazy one this time...

Anyway, I just want to share with you the resin rose bobby pins that I made.
I love resin embellishments..They're just beautiful....
I think they're moulded to perfection..
And I saw those lovely antique bronze bobby pins too and I really like the look of them together.

It was a really quick crafting, and I like it. It feels like a nice break from crocheting, since crocheting things normally take hours.

I bought myself a few resin roses in 3 colors - teal, red and cream white.

As usual...I'm sharing more photos than necessary..hehe
Enjoy! (:

Teal is my favorite! 

And lastly...

So which one is your favorite?

Obsessed with Bows

Hey everyone!
More bows coming your way!

I made these tiny little bow hairpins awhile back.
I managed to make a few of them in pairs. Yellow is my favorite!

They're so fun to make and I made them in a few colors. Here is a close-up.

I haven't listed them on my Etsy shop, since taking photos of them take so long, not to mention the time taken to edit them..

In fact, I'm thinking of backing off from online selling for a bit.
And even being featured on the front page of Etsy won't stop me.
Yep, this crochet necklace of mine was featured on the front page 2 days ago!

And some kind seller from Etsy sent me this screenshot which I'm very grateful for since I slept through the front page feature...

It was exciting and everything since I got about 700 views during that 2-hour feature. But I still am not sure if I would be listing more items. May be I will, but very slowly, since they take up way too much time and I have more fun crocheting/making them...

I just had that inspiration because I just recently found out about local craft fairs such as MAAD and Public Garden. And when I head back to Australia in a month time, they have plenty of craft fairs too in Adelaide. So I'm just in the mood lately to just make plenty of pretty things and just wait for the next craft fair. What do you think about it?

I'll hopefully be back with more. (:
I have test on Thursday and a few projects due really sooooon, so don't be shocked if I disappear for like awhile. (:
