I visited Liaspace.com, and found the tutorial for the cape here. So simple and easy. She’s so inspiring and creative, and she even appears in the Burdastyle.com today.  I made this from my latest fabrics. I’ll make some more. Thank you, Lia.

 

Finding Journal

December 19, 2010

This year almost ending, it’s time to looking for the right journal. I’ve been writing journal since i was in school. Elementary. And i still kept the years ago journals, even not every years.

Journalling is important for me, because i’m a forgetful people. I have to write down or i forget. In the morning, i have to schedulling what i’m gonna do, or i’ll pass the important task. I need journalling, to memorise the day, to feel the past day, the happiness or the sadness. And to remember the born or the death day.

When i was travelling, i need to write down my senses, like how it looked, how it tasted, how it smelled, so when i miss that place someday, i could open my journal and picked the right pages.

The journal book i pick is something simple–i once had a cartoon, illustrated planner, i had no idea what to write since it was too crowded–so i choose simple.

Here are the planner that i might be like

1. These simple yet beautiful journal from Sarah Pinto. You can find them through Etsy.

2. Colorful stripes from Oma Anna.

3. Who didn’t love Moleskine?

4. Ahh Kate Spade, always cheerful.

The Social Network Movies

December 19, 2010

The Social Network

Facebook was a phenomenon. The founder becoming the youngest billionaires. He was at Harvard when he built this site–even though he didn’t finish his degree. Beside that, this movie showed us that friends could became enemy, with money as the issue. Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) partnered with his pal, Eduardo Saverin who finance the project (Andrew Garfield–the upcoming Peter Parker–Spiderman). They built the site, that became huge, with the complaint from Winklevoss Twins–who felt it was their ideas that was stolen by Zuckerberg.

When Zuckerberg became success, he kind of left Saverin, and getting close with Sean Parker-Napster founder (Justin Timberlake). Saverin got very angry when he knew that Zuckerberg decreased his share in the company.

This movie based from The Accidental Billionaires book, by Ben Mezrich. Zuckerberg avoided to be interviewed for this book.

 

 

 

Movies: Due Date; Narnia and Next Three Days

December 19, 2010

DUE DATE

Peter Highman (Downey Jr.), a serious Architect unluckily met these nasty guy Ethan Tremblay (Galifianakis) on the airport, in order to back hometown to meet his going-labor wife. His air journey was failed and he had to spent the couple days in the car with Tremblay and his dog. Tremblay, the actress wannabe, who wear red socks with his skinny jeans, not to forget, his fake perm, bring along his father ashes, always made trouble for Highman. And this journey was seriously funny and awful.

And Highman (Downey Jr. charming as always) was the white collar typical that being selfish and tricky, he tried to leave Trembley somewhere, but his humanity made he came back again to pick Trembley.

Zach Galifianakis as we saw in The Hangover was silly as always. I thought only he who really fit enough to play as Trembley.

 

THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA 3: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER

The Pevencies siblings was back, now without Peter and Susan. Edmund and Lucy who stayed in their Uncle’s home, always get troubles with their cousin, Eustace. One day, they, included Eustace trapped in their room and the painting was turning a real live, so they were going across the seawater, then meet Caspian.

And they followed Caspian’s ship to fight with the huge monster, Sea Serpeant.

I saw this movie in 3D screen,  and felt little bit dizzy, i thought maybe this is because not full animation?

Good movie, lilke it so much. My son had the book series, had to read them someday.

 

NEXT THREE DAYS

John Brennan (Russell Crowe) was a teacher and a father, whose  wife being jailed for accusing murdered her boss. In next 72 hours, Lara Brennan will be transferred to another jail, he tried so hard to make his wife free, since she was a lifetime prisoner. The very nice man becoming a murder and a criminal. How he really loved his non-guilty wife.

Quite entertaining but i disappointed with the unfinished case.

Updating my absence

December 18, 2010

So long i didn’t posting. I still figure out, why i can’t redirect this blog address with the domain name i already bought.

Lately, i found my husband’s old shirt and i tried to alter it into my boys size. The hardest part was doing the yoke. I didn’t have experience for this. After finished, i put it into my son, sadly, it was too small for him, especially the body size, so i tried it on and got the idea. i preferred to wear it for myself. And i changed the button. And that’s not bad. Lucky me.

Butterfly buttons.

My current reading now is The Accidental Billionaire, in order to compare it with the movie.

 

These pages were on my desk, i wanna make travel minibook, but i’m still looking for the photo bunches that i already print out and forgot where i put them, doh.

 

I visited the local traditional market and i found these beautiful fabrics, and i bought felt fabrics–wanna try something with felts and the bias tape (want to learn how to sew it).

And look at these beautiful ribbons, can’t wait to use them.

 

Happy weekend, all…
