New York, here I come

So the sleepless nights and stress are going to be neutralized because I'm leaving for New York the morning after I end school!!! There's so much I want to do: Broadway, MoMA, The Metropolition, Guggenheim, New York Botanical Garden, Ice skating at the Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, EYEshopping! Wee! I'm so excited! :D
Any suggestions?

Rolls, anyone?

Part of the sushi set I'm making for my term project. :)

This is irrelevant, but I just wanted to say make sure you lock and close all your doors and windows before leaving your house. My mom and I caught a young man trying to break into our house this past Saturday. Our house went untouched save the two ripped screen doors, which we only realized after we let him go. This was the third unsuccessful attempt of people trying to break in our house. I don't know if I should consider it unlucky or lucky. Anyways, robbers are so sneaky these days. In my case it was a whole family working together. A mother, a daughter (who looked to be 8 years old at most), the son, and an icecream man who probably is the father were putting on an act while being on the look-out of on comers. I was shocked to say the least. Be careful and be wary of strangers buying icecream in front of your house. -.-

So I've been getting into felt food toys lately.
It's so much fun, and there are endless possibilities!

The weekend

It's my much awaited weekend. Although I'm buried with things to do, the fact that I don't have school takes a lot of pressure off my shoulders. I know I probably took on a little too much this term and I might be kicking myself for it later. But I pray, pray that the outcome is good.

I've been neglecting this blog, so I've decided to come by and update. I've been updating my etsy regularly.

Colorful Threads

I love to draw with thread, here are just a few. This was an class assignment inspired by two distinct designers: Valentino and Christian Lacroix.



I need to get around to photographing the others. :)

So I've been sluggishly moving all my supplies upstairs. They have been banished to the corner of my room since I've promised my mom not to create jewelry or cross-stitch once I'm back in term. Now that school's started I must say goodbye to my lovely babies. *tear* And the day starts out gloomy.
As with stitching, I'm not too upset about it cause I draw using embroidery anyways, so floss will befriend me during this lonely journey.

I am ashamed of the state of my room, but it will be revealed none-the-less. I'll get to organizing this weekend.

before (still messy)

after (even more messy)
Work throughout the terms that my mom has been threatening to throw away if I don't place it somewhere more discreet. (shhh... although it's blatantly out in the open)

byebye supplies!

And Garoo, he makes sure no one takes anything from my room. Notice his big oogly eyes? He's looking out for me. ;)

Lake Casitas

So I spent my last summer days going camping with my good friends. It was a memorable trip, the view was truly beautiful and I've been able to encounter with animals I've never seen around at home. :)

Missing you.

My teddy bear hammy Corner, who passed last november. I miss my little hammy. Corner was so sweet and calm, and unless he's digging in his food bowl or playing on the wheel, you can always find him in the corner. :) He was also the biggest scaredy cat, I think he was traumatized by the caretakers when he was at the pet store. It took him long to trust us, even the slightest movement would set off his fright and he would make five spins around his house.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ <3>

My first hammy, the wise Blobbi. He was just a little blob when I got him for my brother's birthday present. He passed in July 2006, and being so devastated with his loss, I brought Corner home a couple months later. Blobbi was a wildchild, a great escape artist. I had to pile five thick hardcover textbooks on top of his house so he couldn't get out. I had to learn the hard way that one, two, three, or four wasn't enough. Sometimes we don't even realize he's gone, til he's suddenly next to us. One night he escaped and ran upstairs to my brother and sat on top his head. My brother got so alarmed and immediately turned on the lights to find Blobbi's round black eyes staring at him with his two arms in the air. :D

One stitch at a time

Cross-stitching has been one of the loves of my life. I cannot describe the waves of happiness that flow through me when I complete a project. Thus, I have been making some cross-stitch patterns, so I can stitch my own :) There are many more charts coming soon~

Two less!

I'm getting my lower wisdom teeth pulled out this afternoon, and can I tell you that I'm scared. I know that I'll be under novacaine, but still I'm not looking forward to it. My mom is making me porridge, while my family will be feasting on barbeque. :(

In the meanwhile I've been taking some time to update some of my old pictures. Hopefully they'll all be updated soon before school takes over me.

A New Start

I've decided to create a entirely new blog that actually pertains to my store name, somewhat. Since hooniesarang was such a far cry from apple-pie-order. I had to make use of the dashes, because 'applepieorder' was taken, but I presume it's better for recognizability.
I've been working on promos lately. I've decided to make one of those stamp deals, where you get 10 stamps and receive a free gift. I'm planning to keep a copy of all the records myself, so it shouldn't be a problem, there's no need to send me the stamp card or anything. I figure it'll be fun for the customer as well.

New pieces added to my etsy shop,
