Life dump: October

So what do you do when you’ve had a heartbreaking month? (Like, hypothetically low grades and not being able to participate on a particular craft fair. Hypothetically.) I compile a list of good things that have happened this month to at least cheer up a hypothetically sad me c:

Meet “Obo” our (surprisingly!!) working DC motor. This was a requirement for school and thankfully my friend E really spent time on making it and she was being really OC and yay it worked! Also, the robot design is really cute, don’t you think?

Surprise cheesy greeting cards are the best.

And of course getting a free shopping spree c/o J c: And he was the one who insisted we go shop! Cutie. These are just a few things we bought. I think the chocolate shop shaped tin can was really adorable, not to mention I love these kinds of drawing styles. We also found giant pretty tape! It’s as thick as a packaging tape roll! Also birthday toilet paper. I should bust this out everytime someone’s celebrating. It’s so coooool. Allof these we bought in Landmark Trinoma c:

I also made this chubby panda (pattern here.) Three words: squish, squish, squish.

I also finally got around to doing a friend’s palanca stationery using my gocco! I… kind of want to keep these for myself because doilies + neon = looooove. at first I thought it was a craft fail because of all the carbon bits that stuck to the screen, but I guess it went better than expected.

While we were hanging out at the techprep room we spotted a few pages of an old, worn dictionary. Of course I had to get it, I love ephemera.

Oh and I think the best part of it was this:

Hihi, hello brother. This is why you should wake up earlier.

Maybe October wasn’t so bad after all. :)


Saizen finds and the time I had to babysit a stuffed toy.

Okay, so a few days ago my sister (6 years old) told me to babysit her Angry Birds stuffed toy. She even gave me a checklist.

Top most: comb fur, Middle: make him laugh Bottom: wash

When she came back she interrogated me and demanded me if I’ve done what’s said on the checklist. She then asked me to re-enact what I’ve done to make Red bird laugh (second drawing on the list). So of course I had to do it.

Yes, making a complete fool of myself is fun.

Anyway, I was able to go to Saizen in Trinoma yesterday, yay! Saizen is a store which sells everything for 85 Php. Yes. Everything. Look at what I bought yesterday!

Rotary cutter! I’ve been wanting one for ages! I tried it when I came home and the blade is really sharp! The only thing I don’t like is the locking mechanism (that white rectangular plastic near the blade) it’s very dangerous if I lost it D: Not fun. Oh and the circle part on the other end is for storing extra blades! Cool. It took my parents and I like a long time before I figured it out.

Printed aluminum foil. Yes. Aluminum foil with designs. HOW CUTE IS THAT?!?! And I can’t resist cute whale things. I also almost bought a turner for cooking. Why? Because it had a smiley face and the turner part was in the shape of a whale kind of thing. Cuuuuutiiiiieeee. We shall meet again and I shall buy him. And then I will make cute pancakes with him. Yesss.

Cute microwave waffle maker. So cute. I need to try this and see if it actually makes tasty waffles.

Single serve double layer cake mold. How cute are these bakeware items, really?

This is my favorite buy!! I mean, if I were to buy soft pastels at the bookstore, it would cost me more than 120 Php! Yay. And now I can chalk-dye my hair!

So, what have you found in Saizen?
