The ABC's of Me...

I know I haven't made a lot of blogger friends right now, but I sure hope there will be a lot more to come in the future. This is why, I make this post just to help you guys, who happen to stumbled upon my blog, to know me better. Hopefully, we can find some similarities to start new friendship.
I would also love to read your ABCs, and finding out interesting things in your life.

So let's roll and be friends :)

A. Age: 26 (per December 2011)

B. Bed size: King size since I share it with my husband and baby, but I prefer a smaller one when there are just the two of us ;) 

C. Chore you dislike: "house" chores hehehe.. I'm bad in cleaning my own room, so you can imagine the rest... I don"t have any problem with doing the dishes though..

Happy 5 Month Birthday My Rafa

DIY Wire Christmas Trees / Buat Sendiri Pohon Natal dari Kawat

I'm not celebrating Christmas, but December 25th is happen to be my birth day..

This is why; all things related to Christmas often brings warm feeling to me and Christmas tree is one of my favorite elements often found during my birth month. 

Here are some DIY Christmas Trees that I would love to try out whenever I have a reason to make one. I was thinking about creating number 1 for one of my friend, but then I remember that she is not talking to me right now *sigh* #mendadak galau

So just check out these eye candies and found the tutorial below each picture.

1. Laced Wire Christmas Tree 

Renate from DreamHomeDecorating.Com made a creative guest post in one of my favorite blogs, Ucreate. Find the tutorial here.

2. Primitive Christmas Tree
Susan from Homeroad made this Primitive Christmas Tree (as she preferred to call this beautiful wire Christmas tree) complete with the tutorial here.

3. Wired Garland Christmas Tree
Kailyn from Kailyn's Bit Of Sunshine (her blog full of interesting artworks by the way) was featured in Briton Loves It and made this whimsical Christmas tree tutorial here (with Roof Flashing Luminary tutorial bonus!).

4. Aluminum Wire Christmas Tree
Party Ideas by Mardi Gras Outlet shared their great DIY Christmas Tree tutorial here.

I especially picked those wire Christmas trees tutorials because they are simple and considerably cheaper than the other Christmas trees ideas. Of course there are many other better ideas can be found out there so don't be hesitated to share them at the comment section.
Happy holiday everyone!

Last Week Project: Handmade Fabric Wallet

There are many reasons on why people do handicraft, and one of my reasons is to keep my sanity. I even have an album in my facebook entitled "Craft for Sanity" to display some of my craft-works. It is true that making things from scratch works like a therapy to me.

It helps me stay calm and stable no matter how crazy my work load and life problems demand me. So without further ado, here is my last week therapy result..

 Handmade Fabric Wallet

I literally hand-sewn each element of the wallet and enjoying the slow process even tough in the end my thumb gets numb (hey, that rhymes!) 

There is a special girl of my brother in law who inspires me to make this wallet so I think I will send her this "baby" as a birthday gift. I hope she will like it.

It is not perfect just like my other craft-works, but I believe the flaws make my crafts becomes more personal.

I do hope that someday I'll be able to achieve perfection, but maybe I'll have to buy a sewing machine first before getting close to this target. (my birthday is in this December 25th, by the way, just in case you're wondering :P)

This is my first attempt of handmade fabric wallet and I can't wait to make a lot more. Just need some good reasons to start being crafty and escaping from my job's load again ;)

A Letter to A Friend

I don't really know why, but I feel a lot more comfortable writing emotional things in English. 
I guess writing this kind of post in Bahasa will sound too cheesy, so pardon me for writing not in my mother tongue for once twice.

After writing about my childhood friend's wedding, I can't help but think about my another best friend (who apparently not talking to me at this time). 
I actually have decided not to write personal things aside from my own family (this blog is about the daily life of my family, after all), but I don't see any other option to talk to her right now about my feeling without giving her a temptation to show that I am ignored. 

This other best friend, unlike my other best friends cannot stand the idea of married in young age. I know she has her own reasons, but I really hope she will stop her hatred toward the changes which happen after our group of close friends start to marry one by one. 

I believe no matter what kind of changes happen along with the time as an adjustment with the "new life", our feeling towards each other will stay the same. I still love her with all her positive values and flaws, and I do hope she will stay love me despite my changing status.

We are all will eventually face this phase, and I want to let her know that she is not alone. I know she can't stand me for always letting my life goes with the flows, but we both know there are always some parts of our friends' personality that we don't really like. But that's the point of being best friends, right?

You made me laugh, you made me cry, 
You made me love, you made me hate,
It breaks my heart; it makes me sad to think of all the times we had.
Especially since we didn't stop being friends, we just stopped seeing each other as friends.

I really hope you start to open your hard shell, and let me enter to at least be at your side so you don't need to face it alone.

And when the time comes, I'll hold your hand and say..

ps. I really hope you and I will look that good even from behind in your future wedding.
