Update: Goals for 2014

Here's a sort of Progress Notes about my goals this year:


Goals Achieved:

#2 Finish my crochet bag project, the one I started last October 2013


Yeah! I finished the bag last July 2014 I think. I know I promised to post the pattern but unfortunately, I haven't. But I promise to share pictures of my crochet bag to you guys soon.

#7 Save at least 10,000 php

I have this savings on hand right now and I'm planning to use this for my schooling in case I won't be able to find a job soon.

Why I LOVE The Selection Series?

My sister recommended this book to me before and it's just a few days ago that I had the time to read it. After my exciting and thrilling adventure with the Maze Runner by James Dashner and finally finishing Suzanne Collins' Mockingjay, I got the interest to read this young adult novel by Kiera Cass.

DIY Painted Shoes

Hey guys! how are you doing?

I hope everyone's fine.

The blogging world has been quiet the past few months. That's why it's hard to find the motivation to keep blogging my stuff. But nonetheless, I just wanna share what I did on my old flats...

I painted little penguins on it... and I think it turned out great.

DIY Galaxy Art



Hey guys! I think I'm starting to LOVE galaxy prints lately, that I decided to give it a try. Galaxy art had been a hit last year especially on Tumblr and Pinterest. There are lots of inspirations that you can choose from. So, I definitely tried doing it on my own just awhile ago and here's the outcome! Haha! I loved how it looks...

Looming before it's too late

Hey guys! I'm finally back!

I've been missing blogging big time. And because I have more leisure time now, I guessed this is the perfect time to be a blogger again. 

So, how's your day?

I surfed the net and I found out that some of the blogs that I used to follow also lie-lowed with blogging. I don't know, but maybe because other popular social media sites are the craze right now. People don't have the time to read what a blogger has to say. They just want to see instant photos, short posts and make internet friends. Well, what I can say is that we're free to choose what we want. 

So, as long as my page continue to exist on the net and people are still searching for the things that I posted, I would do my best to keep my blog. I'm not being sentimental but having a blog is a better way to connect with people around the world. At least, you have your own page where you can share whatever you want. And as for me, I'll try to keep up with my blog objective: to spread creativity vibes and share my crafts. 

Okay. Okay. So much for that part. 

While I'm away and busy with school and work, a fun craft had been the talk of the town (here in the Philippines). It's the Rainbow Loom Bands. Kids and adults alike had been crazy about looming these colorful rubber bands into bracelets, necklaces, flowers, hearts and other cute things. And of course, even if it's a bit late, I tried it too.

 They say that its a good way to kill time and at the same time it's addicting. So, I bought some bands and loom them into a bracelet. Here's the first loom band bracelet that I made.



I came up with a simple band bracelet and added up a snowflake flower I learned from YouTube. I had a great time doing it and it's addicting indeed. Plus, this craft uses the same hook as crochet so I had no problem with the hook and I think they somehow got the idea with crocheting, because it looks like crochet. Kids used to sell their bracelets for fifty pesos, some are cheaper. It depends on how complicated the style is. It's a fun craft because you have plenty of colors to choose from and a lot patterns to make. Just like crocheting, the pattern is almost infinite (just exaggerating).

I remember my grade school days when beads are the famous crafts for kids. There are a lot of colorful beads, in different shapes and sizes too, plus the colorful plastic threads that you can choose from. I made a lot of bracelets and necklaces that time. I guessed Loom bands is the beads of the new generation. I might buy some more and try to make other patterns too while it is still available. 

How about you? Have you tried making them? Share them below. 

Here's my loomband watch..






Have a great day!

What happened lately?



As you can see, I failed to update my blog lately because of work and school. I tried to come up with a post at least once a week but honestly, I don't have any idea what to write about. I don't have any inspiration and was actually loosing motivation again.

I'm on this period of life crisis again, where I lost all the motivation to continue what I am doing. This is the time when I lost interest on things and even interaction with people. But I am not depressed or anything it's just that I always had this point in my life once in a while, a time to crave for change, to try new things, to learn something new, a time to challenge myself to step up to the next level and learn from the past. To actually forget this chapter and write a new one.

My Goals this 2014!!!


Goals are set. Now, it's time to make them happen. I will really do my best to accomplish them all. This is actually a challenge for me, so, we'll see how many will be achieved by the end of the year. 

Goals:
#1 - I have to passed my subjects this semester so I could enroll for next school year. Hopefully, my professors would be good to me.

#2 - I couldn't find time to finish that project but this Summer I would try.

#3 - I've been planning to buy the bag ever since but I always end up using the money for more important things. This time I really have to buy one.
