Everyday Ear studs

Yes I make jewellery but do I wear jewellery??.......Erm seldom actually. I have a very sensitive skin especially when I sweat a lot, I will develop some itchy rash once the sweat and the jewellery (even fine gold or silver) kind of react together. So to say I hardly wear earrings that are long and dangle. Now what I have mostly in my little jewel box are ear studs, simple kinds of course. Here I am going to recommend some really gorgeous ear studs I find in of course etsy again.

3 Little Pigs

"Little pig, little pig, let me come in!"

"Not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin!"

"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in"

Sound familiar?? Yes it is the all time children favorite script in the fairy tale, Three Little Pigs. One of my students once told me that there is an original version of this story saying that the wolf was actually the ‘good’ guy. Sound interesting?? Yes, curiosities kill a cat, so I was excited and logged into Wikipedia to see if I can dig out something to share.

The truth is that what my student mentioned is a parody of the story. The story named The True Story of the Three Little Pigs was written by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith. The first release was in 1989. Interestingly, this story is another new perspective narrated by the Big Bad Wolf, whose name was "A. Wolf," short for "Alexander T. Wolf."

The book so called turns the story around, showing that the Wolf does not naturally have to be the “Big and Bad” guy. The Wolf makes his journey to look for the little pigs to ask for some sugar, so that he can bake a cake for his dear Granny’s birthday. But why is he “huffing and puffing” out there?? Basically because he is having a cold! Unfortunately, the little pigs die due to the wolf’s great sneeze... It is not good to waste any food right, so the wolf does not want to waste the good meat and he eats them all up. Afterall the pigs die already. Now who is the one telling the whole story?? HAHAHAHA.....it is the Wolf in the prison, telling the reader that “he’s been framed.”

Which versions of The Three Little Pigs do you like the best?

New Friends

I have been in Etsy for about 14 months and last 2 months were the time when I made some friends. Especially I would like to thank my No.1 Fan Peggy who constantly supports my shop; truly a lovable lady who always cheer me up with her sweet compliments and love for the jewellery I made. I always find her kind messages during my tired and worn off days or in the mornings. Okay, enough with these mushy mushy words, these are some great creations which I LOVE from my other Etsy friends............. SHOWTIME!


CHOOSE ANY PRINT 32x48 Inch Mounted Canvas OR Wooden Artbox - Creative Fine Art Photography by Moonangelnay

Have you realise how artistic and stunning your white washed wall would look with Naomi's print? It's time for you to do some make over to transform big or even tiny lifeless wall spaces into an inviting relaxing home gallery.

It is so hard to find Real artist in Etsy and Judy wrote me a message with encouragement on one of my earrings. This painting is a mixed media piece with alterations to the paint made with oil pastel, oil crayon, graphite, colored pencil. Interesting isn't it? I personally like the ways she manipulated the spaces and colors. This painting is filled with strong colors and contrasted with harmonised details.

Poor little mouse Plant Stake by glassetc

Now who is ready to adopt this poor little mouse and give it a lovely home in your garden? Whoever want to know the touching story of this poor mouse should check up this listing...I understand Cathy as I have 3 cats. Also I have to thank Cathy as my moonlight story ear hooks were featured in the Etsy Frontpage because of her treasury.

Are you thinking of getting a new pair of shoes as the old ones are so blend and boring? WAIT!!! This is a shoe make over and look at the wonders this pair of flower clips can do. Unbelievable right! Though they are only meant for shoes but use your imaginations as I think that they'll look great on your handbags or clothes too.

Love Bird Hand Stamped Sterling Silver Pendant Necklace by The Silver Diva

Carrissa is my mentor and English teacher I know from Etsy. She is very kind and friendly to give me encouragements and constructive ideas on what I should do to make my shop look better. She makes hand stamped, custom and personalized jewellery. If you have some memories you want to remember for life...you know who to look for now.

I think this is no surprise once you see the words like coconut and beach. Yes! Betsy is an Island girl and guess where does her inspirations come from...It's from her grandmother who came from The Canary Islands and her mum who is from The Island of Puerto Rico and her desire to bring awareness to the public to preserve these precious beaches for future generations. Imagine the day when we can't find beautiful seashell like this ring....Guess this is what Betsy wanted to tell all of us...

This one of a kind necklace is so so so beautiful and just in time for the summer. It is created with faceted sea foam quartz, clear quartz, amethyst and light green jade. Soft and sweet to charm the wearer. Hilde really knows how to make a woman look pretty and attractive.

This gorgeous Victorian looking bag is made from cotton satin and wooden handles. Her inspirations are from the dresses she has. It is true that we are always inspired by the things around us everyday. Doesn't this bag look like a small doll dress? Sweet for shopping and you can even use it as a diaper bag!

Handpainted thingy...

Hi guys,

Glad that I'm back to update my blog!

I am occupied with many things in my head; thinking of what to do with my jewelleries in my Etsy shop. Beside my detash shop has to be on hold as I am really busy to open up another new shop... Though I have seen and learnt many things recently, I spent most of my times doing my brain therapy and of course RELAX and stay calm. So I have to thank you for following my blog despite my absents for some time.

I started some hand painted pendants recently. Honestly I'm afraid for my eye sight and I do notice a slight change after some nights of works under a cheap lamp, using size 1 brush to paint on a 1.5" space...guess I better stick to my daylight routines...Anyway this is my new work^^ What do you think??
