Swarovski Contact Lenses!

Did you know there are Swarovski contact lenses?!!  How crazy!!  I would totally wear them though as I love everything that sparkles and glitters! ;)  They are fused with Swarovski crystals circling around the edges of the lenses. I wonder if these would scratch your eyes...

According to Mami Magazine, a designer from India (Anthony Mallier ) has created these to make your eyes “Sparkle like they’ve never sparkled before.”

Yay for sparkliness!

New Pink Stuff!

Just wanted to show you the new pink things I got this weekend at Daiso in Richmond, BC.  It includes a pink cake themed tin box (where I'm storing some of my special thread in), and some super cute and pink stationary.  I absolutely love this store, you can find so many Japanese imported things there (from houseware to stationery to consumables).  Most things are priced at $2 only.   The store has 2 levels so you really can spend half a day there!

DIY Bulletin Board

 I made this easy-to-make bulletin board for my room (you may have noticed it in the picture below in my "Ribbon Spool Organizer" Tutorial).  The best thing is that you can customize it to your liking.  Bulletin boards don't always have to be brown and corked! ;) 

All you need is the following:
  • Canvas (any size you want; mine is 8"x10" and I got it from the dollar store for $2)
  • Heavy Duty Stapler (preferably a staple gun but my regular stapler did the job)
  • Fabric of your choice (about 3-4 inches wider and longer than the canvas)
  • Pretty Push Pins
  • Ribbon (optional)
To get started:
  1. Place right side of the fabric facing down on the desk. 
  2. Put the front side of the canvas on top of the fabric and fold fabric over to cover the sides and back of the canvas. 
  3. Staple the fabric down and repeat all the way around the canvas.
  4. Tuck excess fabric underneath the wooden part of the canvas.
  5. Add ribbon and push pins. 
Ta-Da!!  See how easy that was??

How to organize your ribbons - Ribbon Spool Organizer Tutorial

What you see here is a picture of my craft desk. This is where I create all my jewelries, iPhone cases, and cards. I painted the desk and shelf a pretty cotton candy pink.  I turned the shelf into a ribbon holder as well.  I used to store my ribbons in a shoe box but I like it this way a lot better.  It's much more easily accessible and does not take up as much space.

All you need is the following: 
  • Wall shelf (I bought mine from IKEA and painted it with two layers of paint.  You can always find a good deal on Craigslist.  In fact, that's where I bought my desk which I painted pink).
  • Curtain pole (pick the skinniest one available at the hardware store - mine is about 1cm in diameter)
  •  Electric Drill
  •  Hammer & Nails 

Making it is easy!  All you need to do is to drill a hole to the side of both brackets (make sure the drilled hole is big enough for the pole to go through!), mount the shelf, and start putting your ribbon spools onto the curtain pole!! ^___^
