Etsy - jewelry updates

it's been forever since the last time I had worked on my jewelry.
I was too occupied with other things - raising a child, sewing and just everyday stuff
or/and I had been too lazy and not been motivated enough to dig into my beading mess.

the time has come!
for the past few days, I got a burst of energy and creativity for making jewelry.

so here are the bracelet and necklace I made for my Etsy shop.

I also made myself the same bracelet.
I am not really into wearing bracelet,
but this one I can just leave it on my wrist, and it doesn't bother me.

I really like how the necklace turned out too.

another necklace to 'treat' myself?!

I love treating myself way too much, though... :P

P.S. I have been wanting to do a how-to on making a hummered hoop earrings!
maybe sometime this week or next week?!
so, please stay tuned :)

back 'home'

we got back in last Sat.
it's been a lot of catch ups around the house for the past few days.
unpacking, doing laundry, sweeping and cleaning the house.
I will try uploading some of the photos from the trip later!

having too much fun!

I've been slaking on blogging.
I know... :(
but I am on vacation and I've been having too much fun!

now, we are in Ashland, staying at our friends'.
it feels really nice to be back.
I like the 'energy' here.
but also feels a bit weired 'visiting' a place we used to live.
-a mix between feeling 'homesick' and nostalgic-
and it doesn't feel like it's been such a long time since we moved away either.

it's also been so wonderful reconnecting with friends.
some moved away, but a lot of our good friends are still here.

little L finally got to meet her baby friends, Etta and Rowan,
and they had a blast playing together the other day :)
it was really cute.
wouldn't that be so cute to see how these kids grow together?

I am already missing living here... :(
and don't feel like going back to current 'home'...

cate & vogue australia

I ♥ Cate Blanchett.

and, these VOGUE Sep. 09 Australia covers are so very lovely!

how old is she?
and how many kids does she have now? - three? four??
how come she is so beautiful?!

I hope I will age beautifully and gracefully like her...

settling in

finally the move is kind of settled a bit.
mostly my sewing/craft corner left messy...
we were not online for a few days,
but yesterday found out that we could piggyback the Internet from the neighbours.
well, very S L O W Internet...

my husband B is taking a two weeks off,
and we are going up to Quadra Island to see his family for a few days.
B is also going to help his dad to build their new house.
(I don't know if I mentioned before, but he is a carpenter.
well, he prefers to be called a 'timberframer')
then, we are driving down to Ashland, Oregon,
and spend a week there!
I've been waiting for this trip so long!
I can't wait to get down there and see our lovely friends!
and go out to good restaurants there!

hope you all are having a wonderful summer!
summer is too short,
so enjoy as much as you can :)!
