The Craft Swap Project : Pin Cushion

Hello everyone!

Before Hari Raya, me and Ain had organised a craft project in our group “The Craft Project”. It was our first project since the group has been created. The main objective of the project is for an ice breaking session among the group member and at the same time to show each of the group member’s talent in crafting.

So the project was called “The Craft Swap Project”. Every group member were assigned to each partner. The project title is a ‘Pin Cushion’. Every participant required to make one Pin Cushion (freeway medium) for their assigned partner. The deadline was given for about a month for them to complete the project. After that, they need to send the pin cushion to their partners.

I also took part in this project. So here what I’ve made for my partner.

TBR Jar

It’s approaching to 4 am and I couldn’t continue my sleep.
So I decided to update my blog, since I won’t have time for blogging in the daytimes.

What is a TBR Jar? Most of you know that I really love collecting used jar and upcycle it into a new crafty jar. As for this time, I’m using my used jar to become a TBR Jar – To Be Read Jar.

I am not sure about you…. but I always have a problem to choose what to read next after finish reading one book. I would browsed around my bookshelf and end up choosing the latest book I bought. I would feel terrible for abandoning my other ‘unread books’ 😜

There were times I need an application to help selecting a book to read. Then came an idea of this – TBR Jar which I found on the Instagram.

I can assure you it is the cheapest ‘app’ that you can get. Lol! All you need is a used jar. Decorate it with the way you like and put it on a label of ‘TBR Jar’ In short for To Be Read Jar.

the hardest part is to list down all of your unread books. Provided that you have more than 10 unread books. Lol! πŸ˜‚ My list was still ‘sikit’ lah. About 30+ unread books on the shelf. 😜 If you’re lazy to write, you can type on the list. Tear it one by one according to the book you have wrote down. Tossed all of them into the jar. Now you will have to play like a ‘lucky draw’ contest!

Pick one book title from the jar. Looks like my TBR Jar had chosen The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble for my next reading.

Happy reading everyone!

August Drug 2014

Hello hello everyone!!

I don’t know what happened to me but last weekend I’ve finished reading two books! Quite an impress! I bet my ‘hantu’ reading is back and haunted me. Lol! 😁

IMG_2737-0.JPG

My first August drug. Six Suspects by Vikas Swarup. It took me so long to finish this book. Not that the story is boring, but it was because of limited of Me Time these few months. huhu. This story is interesting and adventurous. Vikas Swarup revealed the real India. What’s been happening in that country. The community, politic, culture… all were mix well in that book. You need to focus with the six characters. In the end you will find them in one place where the victim was being shot.

The second book, (ebook precisely) was The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Yeah, am a bit lagging here. I assumed everyone have read this book and now there is a movie version. Thanks to Kathy for giving me the ebook. Well, I bet you would asking me whether I cried or not. Yes. This book deserved a pond of my tears. 😭 The love story is an epic. This book made me smiles, cried and laughed at the same times. I am looking forward to watch the movie version. And get ready with the tissues. πŸ˜‚

Postcrossing

Howdy my lovely readers.

This week I received a mail from Ukraine. It was from my postcrossing friend Maria. She sent me a ‘DIY’ card and exchange with my postcard. I liked the illustration on that card. It’s so girl thing! 😜 She also sent me the printed Euro notes and a really vintage envelope. The envelope really reminds me of the years when people were so active in writing letters.

Indeed, that’s not the only thing that impressed me.

I hope to receive more new incoming mail from another countries.

Here is the picture of me and my sister. I was 5 years old and my sister was 10. We have a very opposite characters. One was a shy girl, very humble… and the other one so cheeky and adventurous. I bet You can guess who is who by looking at the picture. Lol!

You’ve seen the seniors, now let’s compare the juniors of Azura & Ashikkin. 😜 Yaya and Amani are more like sisters. It’s like looking back of me and my sister again. The characters were not much different from their moms as well. Lol!
