Quick birthday thingy. Here’s to 26! Good riddance 25. :)
Lessons from my book Show Your Work!
From the writer of Steal Like An Artist comes Show Your Work!
It’s a fun read and very useful. I will follow this to the best of my abilities. I know I’m bad at keeping my blog updated but I’ll be sharing more stuff soon. I promise to myself.
Last November our house was one of the many that got destroyed. Around that time, I was barely a month in my new job and my colleagues had pledged money to help our family. It meant a lot given that I barely knew them.
So as a token of my sincere gratitude, I went back to making amigurumis so I could give each of them a handmade gift. I didn’t have a lot of spare time so making 20 owls took time. And now I’m finally done!
I actually made 23 but my first attempt failed and I had already given two to a friend.
I know owls are so last season but if I was to make 20+, it had to be a fairly easy pattern and I saw this really cute owl pattern over at garnstudio.
PS. Taking these pictures were a challenge. I was holding the light and the camera and focus all at the same time. I didn’t have a tripod/light stand. :p
Sent the owls to their owners today! See here.
I was chopping strawberries for breakfast yesterday.
Then I picked up this little strawberry man.
I placed it in the bowl to see how it made me feel but it stared at me and begged for its life.
I decided I couldn’t eat it so I let it go.
I know I shouldn’t be playing with food, but I couldn’t resist.
Aiess and her film then went to Cannes Short Film Corner, then to Cinemalaya, and then everywhere…
For BINISAYA 2014, Aiess will be bringing home short films from all over asia,
My desk. Iskalawags posters taped to the wall. Books I need to finish. And some flowers from the grocery.
