A Wonderful Pipit Experience ♡

I stumbled upon Pipit Store Online one day calling for local crafters to be
Wonderful Pipit Market 8's (WPM8) vendors. The next thing I did was email-ed them
my details and UNEXPECTEDLY, I was selected. 

I was reaaaaaaaaaaaaaally excited as this is going to be my first time ever,
participating in a local handmade event! I felt honorable. :D

And yeeeeeeeeeeessss, WPM8 was like a dream come true to me.

And let me present to you my lovely little stall :)
I was the only one making these items and
the preparation time frame was like just 3 months. 
And that was the max I can produce since I'm a full time student.

And nevertheless I'm happy how my little stall looks like :)
I actually did studied on how to set up a booth before I went to that
event. I've learnt that layering your booth will make your products
look more attractive. I hope this little tips will help anyone of you 
who are going to these kind of events in future :)

I felt so blessed, my cousin bro came all the way to meet & support me!

Many friends (photo not published) have turned up at my stall on that
 day too. And I have met a few of my Instagram followers as well :D

I'm so grateful for such a wonderful experience even though
by the end of the day, not all my products were sold off.
It's the memories that will carry with me till the end of my life 
that's worth reminiscing. 

Last but not least, 
I'm thankful to my boyfie who have helped me carried all my stuffs 
including the heavy table and chair and accompanied me the whole day.

A Weekend Project.

It was a beautiful Saturday and I decided to work on a makeover
on my unworn Gold Juicy Couture Chunky Bracelet.

This is how the initial bracelet looks like.
Didn't manage to capture a picture of it. :/

The gold colour chain faded into a lil' silverish and 
ever since then I've never wear it.
So, I thought a little makeover and I'll 
probably wear it like again!? :D

Here's how it looks like after the minor makeover :)
It turns out pretty well, in my POV.

Isn't it awesome!? :)
They can be easily done.

What you need is some yarns of your choice,
a bracelet and a little patience and love :)
And braid them up accordingly with your bracelet.
Try it yourself and I would be glad to see your creations.
Maybe you can send me some pictures!

I want to learn to do friendship bracelets as well.

I love how colourful these bracelets are. 
I'm sure they brighten up someone's day! :D

Adorn your wrists with these yummy bracelets for this summer! :D

I hope I've inspired you to work on your own lil bracelet makeover! :)

SleepyHead Little Pink Piggy

Sleepy Head Piggy is my latest creation.
I love how she turned out to be, so pinky! *squeaks 

She reminds me of the sleepy moment and the magical bedtime stories.
It's so dreammmmy! :)

My setup for the photoshooting session of my precious doll today.

It wasn't that easy to find the perfect spot to capture photos
of  products which is able to show beautiful details yet in 
a very natural lighting. 

Thus, I chose one corner, outside of my house to take
these photos. It turned out to be awesome, I'm really happy with the results.
 It gives enough lighting to show the real colour of the
 product and not much fuss occur during editing.

 I personally believe that, photo is the most 
crucial point as it shows the beauty of the actual product.

I'm not very good at it though, I hope that more practice will 
help me to improve my product photography skills in future.

By the way, Piggy is up for adoption.
You can view more photos of her via my Etsy store :)

I hope you enjoy reading my entry!

tutorial with y'all.

The steps to it is :

It took me quite some time to figure out how to do this as the pictures
above are in Korean and I don't know Korean language! 0_0

understanding in making your own origami bow! :D

Have fun! :)
