I bought a purse in South Africa

In Canada, my coworkers usually noticed that I didn’t bring anything with me to work except for my iPhone. There are days where I’d bring my lunch bag or an umbrella and that was it. I try to be a minimalist one way or another.  I guess it all started as a trial. I remember the first time I tried to go to work with just my phone, a debit card, and a bus pass. The card and the bus pass are attached to the back of my phone using an attachable credit card holder. All three still came in one piece.  Read more […]

Mod Podge Magic – My 2015 Inspiration Board

It’s been 2 months and I haven’t actually created anything.. Oh I forgot, I made this for a friend on her birthday.

Mod Podge Magic, The Recycled Box

  Does it ever happen to you where you got a box you couldn’t just throw away? Like it’s trying to tell you.. “Hey, make something out of me!”.. It happens to me very often, not just with boxes but with other stuff too, like this Ice box I turned into an umbrella holder.  You can see on this post how I used it in a photo shoot.  But I have to be very careful at not hoarding.  I have to make sure I make something out of them as quickly as possible as I can, or else it just becomes Read more […]

Holiday Window Painting

I’ve mentioned on the blog before that a year ago, we moved to The Heights. This Christmas season, this area in North Burnaby looks quite busy and festive. If you’ve driven along Hastings in the Burnaby Heights area, you’ll see quite a lot of the merchants and restaurants and their holiday window paintings. What caught my eye the most are the happy, colourful window paintings to greet you this season. This one is at Fortuna Bakery . Pardon the poorly captured photo with my iphone. But these Read more […]

The Perfect Gift for the Sweet Tooth – DIY Cake Stand

I couldn’t believe it’s only 10 days before Christmas! Wow! Time went by really fast! I never felt this way when I was younger.. I’m just a bit older now.
