Each bottles are labeled with one positive attribute of the stone for different stones gives different energy vibration.

You can get these potion bottles with the positive attributes from PUSAT SAINS NEGARA giftshop :)

Even though these bottle charms are meant for decorative fun but  i do believe in the power of good thoughts and words :)

THE THINGS THAT I DO! oh my....

Salam and Good Morning everyone!

SEE! this is what happens when you go out and "GET A LIFE!", your work just piles up! hahahaha...not just housework but "real" work like my online blogging and marketing of my WIRE JEWELRY pieces and Ebooks gets neglected!

Anyway, i just rembered that there is one more thing that i wanted to share. ACG Malaysia has another BIG event coming soon and i took on the task to make a dummy out of re-cycle materials.
Felicia Loh from THE ART MIND sent me a link on how to make a dummy and this is the result.


first i wrapped my daughter with paper tape all around.



when its dried, i cut it away from her




then we glue loo roll all over the paper dummy




and TA-DA!
this is the finished piece :)



My newfound hobby

Salam and Good morning everyone!

Today I want to share with you what i have been up to for the past weeks that made me neglected to post on my blog. You see, when we spend so much time on the laptop blogging and surfing and social networking, we always here the  saying "GET A LIFE!"  
What i enjoy most is working on my craft and blogging. That is my way of "GET A LIFE!".  There is nothing wrong with spending so much time on the net especially if you are doing an online business but i decided to take on the advice and just do that "GET A LIFE!"  and spend more time outside the borderless world and see what other things that can help entertain my already "blissful" life :)

First,
i discovered ROCK PAINTING.
How do you begin to start this hobby? let me share with you what i learned from my friends who  teaches this at their craft learning centre.

#1 of course you will need rocks :)
you can collect them from your garden, or like me i purchased them from HOUZ DEPOT . One bag of these garden rocks cost me RM15. You can get them from other garden centres as what i did earlier but  it costs double. Yup about RM30. 
I will not recommend you use pebbles collected from rivers and such for you may bring back "spirits" attached to the rocks.....so ya...better not.

#2 you will need a pencil or water erasable pen.


#3 you will need MOD PODGE to seal your work and give it that glossy supershine look. i know MOD PODGE is expensive but its worth it! I bought mine for about RM53/bottle

#4 you will need nylon paintbrushes and acrylic paint and you are good to go!

HOW TO DO IT?
#1 with pencil draw a simple motif you want to paint
#2 use acrylic paint
#3 leave to dry and when dried, you can use permanent marker to outline your pic. I suggest faber castell permanent ink.
#4 seal your masterpiece with MOD PODGE for glossy shine and you are done!

 














SECOND,
i discovered DECO-CLAY.

How do you begin to start this hobby? let me share with you what i learned from YENJI

I have always wanted to learn clay art and this i decided to enrol myself at YENJI. There are so many types of classes you can do here and i started with BASIC CREATIVE DECO.

#1 you will need toy clay, glue and hand lotion.

#2 creativity!







my craft partner in crime, MEL! she did the ADVANCE FLOWER DECO.










ITS FINISHED!


It took me TWO DAYS to do this! 
Now i have signed up for the BASIC FLOWER MAKING class and will post more finished pieces in the future.

These are just two  out of the many things i discovered in my effort to follow the phrase
 "GET A LIFE!"  on top of that i  am more involve with ART CRAFT GUILD MALAYSIA and i have a BIG announcement coming soon. 
so, STAY TUNE!



EVERYONE, 
now go out and "GET A LIFE!"

:)





HOSPITAL AMPANG JUMBLE SALE

SALAM AND GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!

Recently i particpated in an event organised by Hospital Ampang to collect funds for poor patients who need funds that will able them to seek treatment at the hospital. As it is the fee to seek treatment is already very minimal with registration cost costing less than RM5 but in able to seek treatment there, these patients still need funds to travel to and from their homes, for food and other misc matters.

At first i agreed to contribute things around the home to donate but end up volunteering to pick up and send some items donated by other generous people (only Allah swt can repay your kindness).
I also started a new hobby, ROCK PAINTING! and as you know as i paint and paint to practice, am landed with all these painted rocks with no home. So i sold all these rocks at the hospital and all proceeds goes to the hospital. THANK YOU very much to those who bought my painted rocks in aid of this fund. Only Allah swt can repay for your kindness.

I also want to say special thank you to my friend kak Madinah Torrence for being there to accompany me. I really enjoyed your company and wish there were more rocks to paint together :)

Thank you to Dr.Lynn Azura for inviting me to particpate and gave me one booth. 
It was fun and the good doc manage to paint two rocks in between her "busy-ness" making sure everything goes well during the jumble sale.

If you are interested in my painted rocks to give as gifts or souvenirs, do contact me at 016-2089430.
Each rock goes for RM10 each (not including shipping) and negotiable for larger quantities. 

:)
