I read about this game on one of the blog i visited it is about Ten on Tuesday. Every week the site owner a theme on anything on your Top 10, activities, things, movies, songs, situations anything under the sun and this looks fun so I decided to try.

The theme for today is "10 Things You are Thankful For". Here's mine...

1. God Almighty for bringing me in this wonderful world
2. Memories of my parents (My Mom died on March 2007 and 2 years after just last March 2009 my dad passed away too)
3. My very kind and loving husband
4. After the transition period of the company we worked for, my husband and I were rehired by the new management.
5. My entry level DSLR camera (an anniversary gift from my hubby)
6. I can do crafts especially handmade jewelries
7. I can play badminton competitively
8. Food trip and chatting after badminton games with friends and playmates
9. Coffee - because I can't start my day without it
10. My neighbor's wifi signal (since I don't have an internet line yet)

I guess that's it, the 10s I can think of this moment... there are still more...

Why, Why, Why

I received an email from a friend a while a ago and I can't help myself smile while reading the content because the why, whys here are true indeed.

So friends take a few minutes to read this...

Enjoy!



Why, Why, Why,

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are almost dead?


Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they already know there is not enough money?


Why does someone
Believe you when you say there are four billion stars; but have to check when you say the paint is still wet?


Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?


Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?


Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?


Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?


If people evolved from apes,
Why are there still apes?


Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?


Is there ever a day that mattresses
Are not on sale?


Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?


Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?


Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?


How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?


When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, 'It's all right?' Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, 'That really hurt, why don't you watch where you're going?'


Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?


In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?


How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?


And my FAVORITE......
The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.



Have a Nice Week!

Rose & Sapphire Rosaries

Luckily I had a travel to Metro Manila last week and was able to visit some of the bead & accessories suppliers in Quiapo and finally two of Analyn's orders were completed.
I made her rose and sapphire "HOLY ROSARIES" beaded with 6mm & 8mm round swarovski crystals strung with sterling silver 6mm wire. The crucifixes are also 925 silver except for the "centerpieces" (sorry for that I can't find a sterling silver for that).


I had all the materials ready for the rest of her orders. I'll share it on the next series of post. SO watch out for it.

Just tell me if you want the same items too... I'll be happy to make it for you.

Pink Bangle and Earring Set for Wynona

I was thinking deeply last night on a new project but my head seems to be blank and I have an order due on Sept 17, 2009.


So I decided to make a bangle bracelet (JCB-02) but this time the swarovski crystals are arranged on a diagonal stripes. I then made also a pair of earrings with (JCE-03) style to match with the bangle. I did slight changes on the earring style by replacing 4 gold spacers into crystals.


The bangle and earring were done, now my problem is how I gonna present it. I searched my big boxes at home for my jewelry box stocks (which I forgot where they were inserted after my transfer from ZC) and chose a pink one to match the set. I wasn’t able to buy pink ribbons so I salvaged some from old chokers too.


So that’s it a Birthday Present ordered by my former colleague intended for her best friend Wynona.

Been busy a while

I became very busy these days since I’m back to an 8am-5pm office based working hours so I wasn’t able to spend more time doing handcrafts. I guess tonight I need to visit my bead and crystal boxes, since my former colleague ordered a jewelry set for her best friend’s birthday that would be due on September 17, 2009.

I hope by tomorrow I’ll be able to post the finished product. Ciao!

Back Issue Bead Magazines

Whenever I passed by at BOOKSALE I see to it I get a chance to peek on their available magazines whether latest released or back issues. Mostly I get a hold on back issue magazines because they are cheaper. I specially select mags about beads, crafts and photography, sometimes I consider buying also entrepreneur and family related mags.

Last weekend while having our window shopping at SM CDO, my husband and I happened to passed by at Booksale, I never hesitated to search through their magazine stands and luckily I found this 2 back issue magazines about beads. The May 2009 issue of BeadStyle and a Special issue of BeadStyle Magazines cost me P 149.00 and P 119.00 respectively, a very budget saving for me.

At home I excitedly opened the sealed magazines and started flipping back and forth the pages and appreciating every picture, every idea published.

Swarovski Crystal Colors

My collections are handcrafted using Swarovski crystals, 14k gold-filled and sterling silver. I specially made use of the mention materials because my creations are marketed by my sister-in-law to her co-teachers in one of the local public high school in ZC. Crystals are the "in" fashion statement now a days.

The luster the crystal jewelries emit conveys elegance not only for special occasions but also an everyday fashion statement.

Girly Star Bracelet & Earring Set

Prooh my officemate told me that her 4-year old daughter was jealous of the jewelry set he gave his wife that he’d ordered from me. So he asked me to create a bracelet earring set fit for a 4-year old girl.

I rummaged my bead boxes looking for bead crystals with pastel or light colors, and I’ve found some cute peridot star beads. To enhance the prettiness of the star beads, I added a little combination of 4mm rose pink and amethyst bicone crystals and 4mm 14k gold-filled ball spacer.

As a result, a cute girly star bead bracelet was created.



To match the bracelet, I decided to craft a hoop earring with 2 bicone beads as dangling, same size and color with the bracelet.



Finally, a cute pink pouch for packaging.

Like it? Just contact me... :)
