Valentine’s Day is only a few days away. Just in case you were looking for more ideas, I thought I’d share just a few more. I’m always a sucker (no pun intended!) for mustache crafts, so of course I loved these mustache and lips lollipops when I first saw them over at Blonde Designs. I made them two years ago for Susu’s and Suraya’s classmates. The mustache and lips were [...]
On Wednesday I participated in another Anthropologie workshop. This time it was a gift basket making workshop. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one or what it included, but nevertheless I figured it’s Anthro so it’s worth checking out. There were a lot more attendees at this event than the last one I attended. At our arrival, we were greeted with hot chocolate, juices, and an assortment of [...]
Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
A few weeks ago Anthropologie had holiday vignette workshops at some store locations. I thought how fun would that be so I joined the workshop at the store in my area. Boy, I’m so glad I did!

Participants duty: Making the fur that will be [...]

Every year my mom makes Thanksgiving dinner and we all gather at my parents’ house, except last year for the first time, I made the dinner because my mom was out of town. Yup, I sure did! And surprisingly I made one heck of [...]
Earlier this year (yup, the kid plans ahead!), Suraya decided she wanted to be something “scary” (as she puts it) for Halloween. That something scary is a zombie bride… and I liked that idea! As I was searching for ideas, I came across this Corpse Bride costume over at Family Ever After. I loved it, so decided to use it as the inspiration for Suraya’s costume. First thing on the [...]
Do you have the Booing tradition in your neighborhood… or if you live in a condo like I do, does your condo building Boo? The condo building I live in didn’t Boo until last year. After hearing about all the fun my sister’s neighborhood has Booing each other, I thought why not start the tradition in my building. So that’s exactly what I did last year… and it was a booing success! In case this [...]
