A Day with a Lovely Friend......♥

 My best friend from high school came to visit me, she had moved out of town almost 5 years ago, 
I was so happy to see her! We were shocked to see how we both had changed, how he had become more shy, than she usually was, and how I had become more talkative, than I usually was.
We went to the museum, the park & did some shopping!
I wish she can come again to visit, miss her a lot

 Unfortunately the fountain at the park was frozen....brr so cold! I like this cute little bush:

 The somewhat wall of the park, I like how it looks, but, I think it would've been lovelier in spring, with lots of flowers, & my favourite roses! I love roses.

Outside the park, near the river was this creepy gate, kind of like taking pictures of it though, the construction people were breaking down the house, I wonder how old it was. There are pretty old buildings in my town, lets just say, I like History (^-^ ). Even though, visiting some of these places creeps me out, it gives me peace of mind as well.

♥ 21st Birthday Wishes ♥

Today is my birthday, I can't believe another year of my life has completed, I still wish I was a kid, I miss my childhood of innocence & worry less days!
It was so cute & ♥ thoughtful for my sister to make this card for me!
My mom gave me two lovely dresses & black tights, I ♥ it! They're both so sparkly! 
I love glittery things, thanks mommy ♥

Same style dress, in red colour. Looks so Christmasy!

I work today (--__--) Hoping to celebrate my birthday this weekend, Tues-Wednesday
I hope to save up to travel to Japan, & then UK, it's so hard to get vacation days off at work, I may get vacation days next year, I just hope to live life, travel as much as I can, as long as I am young, & adventurous. I hope to save up to buy a High Def. Camcorder to record my travel, I want to keep all my travelling days as a good memory! ♥

♥ Church Photography (Pic Heavy)

About 2 weeks ago, I took the liberty to capture some of the most beautiful churches in my town. When I visit UK/Europe, I will be mesmerized by the architecture, 
I just love churches & historical architecture/places so much!
I find it very peaceful to stroll around & take pictures, relaxes me the most.
I don't remember the names of these chirches, was too engrossed in taking pictures, hehe (^-^ )

 Basement of Church, looks mysterious, hehe

I hope to photograph more over my weekend, best of luck for everything. 
Life is too short to be wasted, regretted, & moaned over, enjoy all you can!

♥ My First Classic Lolita Dress! ♥

Over the past  two days, I renovated a plain beige dress with lace & a bow, from my hair clip (that I rearely wear). I think the colour combination makes it look so cute! It's definitely Classic Lolita inspired, can't to wear it with lace tights, would look so kawaii!! Although a bit scared to ruin the lace. I also have been loving roses, a lot.

It would look good with a long sleeve shirt too!

I hope to get better at sewing, can't wait to create more! Hope this will stop my urge to shop for frilly, lacey, cute clothing... (--__--) 

Anyways, have to go back to work tommorrow....I won't have much time to relax or blog. I hope you're not stressed, workload is such a headache. Wish life was simpler!
I wish for my next weekend to come soon, so that I can sew more. I love Classic Lolita Style! Hope you're all well, speak soon- Yen

A Day Of Adventure & Surprise! ♥

  Hi, Just wanted to share what I've been upto.
  Two days off, Tuesdays & Wednesdays are the best part of my weeks. I only get   those  two days off, so I try & accomplish everything I can during those 48 hrs.
  Today I spent my time :
-chatting with my lovely friend/sister Alice ♥ in the morning, which was surprising, exciting & wonderful!  It was so lovely to be able to talk to her, face to face, but, I just  couldn't stop being shy & smiling!
-tried to sew, photograph, & do a bit of reading, drawing/painting.
-watching/trying out tons of Dramas, multicultural Movies, the Secret Garden Movie.
-entered ToFebruary's New Year 2012 Contest.
-adding new products on my Etsy store.
-trying to tidy my room (fail!)  (--__--)
-browsed more about cute Japan websites & places to tour around the world.

Here are a few Trims & Laces that I bought/collected last year. The white lace would be perfect to make a wristcuff, so elegant, Classic Lolita style (^-^ )

Fabricland was having a 40-50% Off Boxing Week Sale last week, even though I promised not to spend money, I did. Thanks goodness I spent money on something constructive once in a while, hehe. I keep spending money on unnecessary, cute things.
The rose & velvet fabrics are my favourite ones, the peachy silk fabric, was something I had with me for a while. Maybe I could make a dress with a cute bow, as soon as I get back into sewing. I hope to sew a small cape using the velvet fabric.
I haven't sewn in 2 years, since my Fashion Class at high school.
I hope to sew some Classic Lolita style clothing.

The pink velvet trim would look so good with that pink rose fabric,same with the red ones! I love crafts, arts, sewing, painting, photography, wish there was 1 career that would combine all those together, would be fun do those as my job.
I just hope to find more rose fabric patterns ...it's my absolut favourrite! A pattern with roses & bows would be so cute!

Storage box for my handmade items for my Etsy Shop:
 My Art/Craft Case. The pink area that you see on the top, those are all headbands that I created, wrapped in pink tissue paper, as I'm too clumsy to damage them. The box that you can see on the right is actually a jewelry box, it's too full, I need to stop buying cute jewelry, & sparkly things, hehe....just hope this New Year's resolution is not broken too soon!

Wesbsites I recently found & love:

Newly found Cute Websites :

My sewing would be inspired by these:

I hope to make good use of my time tommorrow, would probably meet up with some of my college friends, friends & family always brighten up my day. I turn 21 next Sunday, 8th Jan'12....time passes by too soon, doesn't it?

Hope you're all having a lovely day!
