It’s December and it’s my “birth-month”. I’ve started counting down by reminding Mr. Y every two hours. I’m also giving hints to him for the gifts, but I am not sure how well it would work. I showed a Kawasaki rose to him and ask whether he would make 99 such roses for my birthday. Unfortunately, the request ended up Mr. Y bargaining. According to him, it doesn’t seem plausible even to make more than one rose. Why am I not surprised at all? =,=

I finished a small project last week, but I was not able to document it as the project was a gift to a friend leaving here last week and our camera won’t be back until 2 weeks later. Although I usually stop crafting when the camera is not around, this gift project somehow brought my craft mojo back. I am a bit eager to start a new project. The question is which one. You probably know I don’t like working on more than 2 projects at the same time.
Please help me with this difficult decision, my dear friend! You can choose more than 1 items.
When people asked me about my vacation, my response was always something like “it’s fantastic”. The next question would be where I had been. Actually, there is no sightseeing involved. I stayed with my sister’s family for 1.5 weeks. The adults worked and the kids went to school everyday as usual and I got a precious chance to relax. By “relax”, I mean no housework, food on request, sleep whenever I want, unlimited internet and smart kids to play with. Yup, I need to fight with my nephew several times for my own laptop. I cannot think of any vacation better than this.

I have been thinking to make one of these since I saw mizusugi‘s ribbon ornaments. J and I had a discussion about how hers should be made and came to a conclusion that it must be made up of several small identical parts to be stringed together into a ball.
I was rather expecting something made by sort of weaving and insertion. After many messy experiments, I finally came up with a star that doesn’t look too bad. The paper strips were still from the same magazine as the crab and the basket set. I think it can make great accessories as Francesca’s.

No wonder Flickr is a place full of inspirations and I am never tired of being amazed. Here are some great projects I collected recently from Flickr.
