Singing my Heart Out

My own red coral on cotton strands bracelet

We are moving closer to the end of 2014. The best way to celebrate the end of such an adventurous year is to be with your lovely partners, family and friends … right? And I am blessed with tonnes of love from my family and lovely friends. I will be joining GayaIzzah.com team at @ruangatsubang  SS15 Subang Jaya, organized by @malaysiastreetfest on the 27th December 2014. We will be having our first public appearance there (with the rest of other traders 😛 )… and hopefully it will be the start for more and more public appearance from GayaIzzah.com. Hope to see some of you there too …

Segregating and checking on my bracelet stocks

Just came back home from my family vacation trip and end of the year is always the busiest as I needed to prepare my children for their 2015 school session. Being a mother is still my top priority job … and because of that little “peter pan” in  me (aka my playful nature) , I always need to be reminded that I have children that will always looking up on me lol.

Someone said that “One has to be an open palm. As soon as it clenches into a fist, the person looses the ability to learn and to enjoy new things. And, that is the onset of old age”. Thanks to my inner little “peter pan”, as at today … I still feel the joy of experiencing and learning new things.

Opps a bit side track here …

So, I promised GayaIzzah.com team for a proper jewelry collection during this year end event … and a promise is a promise (honestly I am so sleepy and tired right now). A good thing about doing something that I am so passionate about is … no matter how tired I am, at any time … when my hand touches my jewelry tools I will get excited again like that energizer bunny.

Reproducing some more of these dreamy butterfly with pearls bracelet. This bracelet is one of my best seller. A bit dreamy kind of bracelet but …. I am a sucker for dreams, fantasy, fairies and elves

A new bracelet design that I wanted to share with you. Bracelets made from snail shell beads combined with tiny little charms. Yeah … it is from real snail shells 🙂

I really need my power sleep tonight. Being up late for quite a number of nights already … hopefully I could complete both the bracelet stock and the bracelet catalog before Friday. And, I hope to see all of you this Saturday, 27th December 2014 In Sha Allah …

Cheers

p/s my mind is singing Colbie Caillat song … ‘Try’ right now. Beautiful song with good melody and lyrics. Here is her “Try” music video … a soft reminder for myself to reduce buying unnecessary things just to impress others 😉

Get your shopping on,
At the mall,
Max your credit cards
You don’t have to choose,
Buy it all
So they like you. Do they like you?Wait a second,
Why should you care, what they think of you
When you’re all alone, by yourself
Do you like you? Do you like you?You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thingYou don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to bend until you break
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thingYou don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try

Whose Treasure Chest Challenge

Part 2 of Whose Treasure Chest Challenge

I had a hectic week and I miss my old house helper (Timah please comeback 😉 ) very much. My life has been in chaos for the pass few months without her and I really need my GATEWAY!! Enough ranting and back to work.

So, I challenged myself to create 10 bracelets out of this treasure box … but … I guess my brain can only produced 9 bracelets and boredom start to burst out from my chest 😉 . And, you can’t force creativity lol and the most important thing is I need to pack my bag for my next trip tomorrow.

The challenge

Here are the photos of 8 bracelets (photo of the 9th bracelet does not turnout well and I don’t have time to redo the shot) that I created from the box and I still have a lot more beads to work on . There are too many yellow and brown beads in that box … colors that I am struggling to love,  a challenging game indeed. Will update more on my achievement for this box in a few more months …

Cheers,

MM


Whose Treasure Chest is This

This is not Mine

Part 1: Whose Treasure Chest is This?

This is not my Treasure Chest for sure.  One of my breakfast girlfriend got bored of her crystals (semi-precious stone beads) collection and wanted me to revamp her beads collection into something new and unique just for her. One whole box of all sort of semi-precious stone bracelets in god knows different mix of color and shape. And, it has been sitting there on my working table for the past 2 months.

I need to push myself to start with her collection as soon as possible before I start to get crazy with my camera and my photography trips. Arghh … so many things to do yet I have only 2 hands. This is the time where I wish that I am an octopus … who has 8 hands 😉 . But, I want to be playful with her collection so, I am challenging myself  to at least create 10 new and unique bracelets in 7 days.

Wait for Part 2 of this post as I will upload the photos of the completed bracelets 🙂

Cheers

MM

p/s I wonder how much should I charge you … my girlfriend? *wink*
