guilty giveaway.

it's time for another guilty giveaway! you see, i've vowed to myself if i shopped for new clothes, i'd have to take out some old ones that were hardly ever worn. i didn't (and still don't) know where to wear this knitwear from oasis and that vintage silk indian blouse i'd been saving for special occasion is now too small for me. sigh. they should go to better homes and be loved until they are all worn out, don't you think? so please, please, please win these lovelies.
you know the drill. leave a comment and become a follower so i can easily deliver the good news (if you already are, thank you so so much). i will pick two winners randomly in a week's time on august 1st. as always, the giveaway is for indonesian residents only. break a leg!

apple pie in a jar tuto.

remember the apple pie in a jar from our anniversary picnic? its recipe had been going on the internet for quite some time now. since i don't bake, i thought making one would be complicated. but not if you cheated with frozen puff pastry sheets bought at local grocery store! for the fillings, you can find various recipe on the blogland but i just used what we got in the kitchen - apple, raisin, vanilla powder, rhum, butter, sugar, and cinnamon. next you only need to squeeze the sheet into a jar, then pour in the fillings.
i only baked a jar and saved the other two in the freezer for another time. i thought it tasted okay, but the husband liked it a lot - am just glad he's so easy to please :D

stamped fabric.

i saw this first at oh! crafts and i thought what a good idea to make some nice bookmark for the husband. you only need long strip of fabric, a button (giant one preferably), rubber letter stamps, stamp pad, and of course needle and thread. next step, simply stamp and stitch.
the ink turned out to look quite subtle but i love it! beside bookmark, i used my stamped fabric to wrap around the pouch. i must say it looked pretty good :)
i think love message doesn't always have to be written on a piece of paper. you can stamp it on some fabric or write it with chalk on my writer's block. right? have a lovely weekend, everyone!

from the husband.

yep, i totally forgot to post what the husband gave me for our 4th anniversary: one beautiful cakestand! you do know how i looove to use one (or three) when throwing parties, so this will add to my collection :)
well of course i gave him hints, ladies... i've been eyeing that cakestand from arlinda frota at alun-alun indonesia for quite some time now, and it is finally mine! ha ha ha *insert evil laugh* but as for the origami tulips, they were purely his idea. he's not crafty at all but he learnt how to blow the tulips to get them puffy via youtube just for me. whatta man!

recent buys.

i've been wanting to share these finds with you, so here goes...
crafting a meaningful home by meg mateo ilasco.
the quiet book by deborah underwood, illustrated by renata liwska.
around the world with mouk by marc boutavant. well i didn't actually buy this, my sis-in-law did for the little champ. thanks ngi, you rock!
kesatori fabric by marimekko, again from the sis-in-law :*
hot pink laptop sleeve by clementine, puchi puchi babie deer doll bought at kinokuniya bookstore, and vintage placemats bought from vantiani.
carving kit, foam brushes, and cutter pen bought at gramedia bookstore. enough about me already, did you buy anything good recently? i'd like to know!

anniversary picnic.

so yesterday was our 4th anniversary. i was going to blog last night, but fell asleep out of the euphoria. i prepared everything days before, so when it was finally over all i wanted to do was sleep :D anyways, i wanted to do something special this year so instead of giving a gift, am throwing a full event for the husband. i was very much inspired by birthday party in a box you are my fave, found via oh happy day.
what i put in:
- patchwork picnic blanket.
- puchi puchi babie deer doll.
- my writer's block, buy it here.
- vintage saucers and teacups.
- tin plates.
- cake stand.
- cupcake toppers.
- i love you candles.
- stamped fabric, inspired by this.
- plastic spoons and forks.
- vintage placemats, bought from vantiani.
- gocco printed pouch.
i asked the husband to open up his present in our backyard so the two of us can have our picnic there. just look at that clueless face! minutes later, tadaaa...
did you see the origami tulips? my dear man did those. i asked for something handmade so that's what he came up with. he even taught me the how-to steps, oh am so proud of him! for the menu, i ordered some cupcakes from minilovebites - the berry strawberry ones are awesomely good! but i also made something myself, that apple pie in a jar and the husband loved it. since some goodies are handmade and homemade by yours truly, i will be making separate posts about them later on. meanwhile, am just going to savour the leftovers. life is gooooood!

a silly socks surprise farewell party.

one of my dearest friend cheeqa (also known as 'silly cow') is leaving for brussel, belgium. she will be stationed there for three whole years! sob.. so me and alia decided to throw her a surprise party at my house. alia would be doing the menu and me the decor. we already had the plan for a month but alas, i didn't find the right party theme until the week before when i found it somewhere on the internet. so off i went for socks hunting, i also contacted dita cemprut for some silly sock dolls and puri ideku handmade for some silly sock cookies - not forgetting the socks garland and of course our dress code: silly socks. i love love love how it turned out!
i prepared everything for sock puppet making activity, but we ended up chatting, reminiscing old times, and laughing so much that we all forgot about it. but if you were gonna make the same themed party, i truly think making sock puppets is a very good idea! anyways i hope you had fun cheeqs, we all wuv you lots :*
