Award for Redecorating My Room? Ehehe...

Salaam :D
Last weekend I re-layout my room. Well, since I rarely do any sport (ummm, NEVER is a more perfect word), I consider cleaning and changing my room layout as a sport... hahaha

Then I made a simple craft:
Carnival Flags :)
Using pink unused-paper-bag & magenta wrapping paper. Added bones to the magenta ones so they don't swirl.

Aaaaannnddd, received this beautiful award from Rizahati and Prahmahita... Thank youuuuuuu ^^

DIY: Scarf Hanger...

... in no more than Rp 10.000!! (USD 1)
What you need: Unused magazine; double tape (USD 0.6); ribbon +- 4 meters ($ 0.2); clothes hanger; scissor.

* I used a pencil to help me rolled the paper -- also to create hole in the pipe.
* Insert a ribbon! Create a ladder! As much as you want!
* Then tie the ribbon to cloth hanger
PS: knot the ribbon at the last intersection of the paper-pipes *ah bingung jelasinnya pake Inggris... pokok'e di perpotongan pipa yg terakhir, tuh pitanya diiket ya kawan, biar gak mlengse2 *halah apa ya bhs Indonesianya*

Looks easy, huh? :D I was just thinking to buy a scarf hanger, and I thought, why not making it? From CRAP to CRAFT!! Hahaha...

I made this yesterday. Now it's still okay. I am a little bit worried about the plastic hanger (well, the magazine-paper-pipes are not things to be worried, they're strong u know..)
I hope the plastic hanger could resist the weight of my scarves. And I need to make more coz there are still many more scarves in my wardrobe that's sooo messy!

Wedding Gown Design: Inspired by Indonesian Fabric

Had sent these 2 designs for a wedding gown design competition but I loooseeeee.... :D
I guess this design's destiny is to be published at my blog only hehehe.... Here's two different style of wedding dress, created by meeeeee....
 
Design 1: using batik as ornament, asymmetrically 
Design 2: Using Makassar silk as an outer wear, adapting style of lolita.
 Hmmm probably I will consider the second design as my someday-wedding-dress... hahahahaa....

I do feel that my designs were not quirky enough to be accepted at a design competition... But however, who would want to wear a quirky dress for her wedding? Errr... not me....

Drawn by hand (drawing pen), scanned, colored using Photoshop. Batik & Makassar silk patterns are scanned. BTW, thanks Ghaida from gdagallery.blogspot.com who told me it was Makassar silk :D (I hadn't known the name of those fabric)


PS: I start using an internet ad on my blog, so you will find some words in my article underlined. Do click if you find it interesting, or just ignore them :)

DIY Easy Scrapbook

The second time being confused about what to give for wedding present (the first time was written here).. Household appliances such as teapot-set or bed sheet or else could be useful but how if everyone else gives that too?
Angpao (money) is a great choice but surely it's not something memorable..
So, why not just give angpao + scrap book?

I made a scrapbook (very economical) for my best friend. Very quick to be made, too. Steps:
  1. Find Scrapbook Template at google.com
  2. Save the picture
  3. Edit at Photoshop, add your photos
  4. Print at digital printing with a good quality
  5. Bind with lovely ribbon
 The Cover
 First year at industrial engineering, we became friends, got involved at college organization, and had fun together. Years gone by, we'll still be friends. Sweet memories, birthday surprises, tears and laughters will remain in our hearts :')
 We were sooo happy when we graduated. It's time when we shall be separated, but we know we should follow our own destiny. Hey, my best friend has already having picture with her future-in-law, too.
And my most ambitious, talkative, and quirkiest friend was the first one getting married! Married at July 2010, had wedding ceremony party at November 2010. May she and his husband be happy ever after, and have a family as Muhammad s.a.w. guides.
At the back: notes from me and my other besties. The end.

Best Friend's Wedding #1

So, the title is "Best Friend's Wedding #1", which means there will be #2, #3, etc. Who will be the next? Hehe

Anyway, 2 weeks ago I attended one of my best friend's wedding reception :)
Just having the weird feeling that 5 years ago we first met at our college's orientation. We were so geeky and silly and noisy and suddenly one of us is legally someone's wife! :D

My friend's (Eny) wedding reception

Me with someone. I've already worn 12 cm high heels and my height still couldn't catch his!

Why we love wedding: It gave us reason to meet up again! And experience the chit chat and laughters that we once had in the past :')
Miss you all, dear friends....
