The Queen’s Birthday long weekend was beautifully relaxing for both Bry and me. I decided to revisit my crafting toolbox last night, and made a necklace that I was quite pleased about. I hope to be crafting more in the next couple weeks.


****UPDATE*** This item sold within hours! If you like this and want to purchase it, I can make another for you! Just let me know. Comment here or email me cherylyap81 [!at] .


Chant d’oisseau. USD18. Available on

This is my latest. Featuring a customized vintage style pendant with metal finding bird and rose swarovski crystals. What a beautiful combination.

So it’s supposedly gonna hit 37deg celsius (99F) today. WTH. It’s only 31C (88F) right now n already my apartment feels like an oven. Whew. Maybe this heat will motivate me to work harder…

Come mid-May will be the first time that Bry and I will spend time apart since we got married. He’s going to the US for 10 days to visit his folks while I am going to Singapore for about a week to visit my folks and go on a family vacation with them to Hanoi (Vietnam). While I wish I could visit both the US and Asia, alas, money constraints couldn’t allow (sorry my dearest Americano amigos *pout*).

Anyway, Bry and I started a shopping list for him for when he’s in SoCal:

Things to buy for me – top of the list: COACH stuff!

2) Paper Source papers/ribbons/etc.etc….(the whole store, basically!! It really is the best paper/craft store, ever. )

3) Beads!!!

….and more.

Things to buy for him (and for me) – top of the list: Bottles of CONTACT LENS SOLUTION!

2) Toilet paper

3) Toiletries!!

Seriously. 😉

Bry’s also gonna load up on Mexican food (yummmmm!!!) and homecooked Korean food (yummm, too!!). All I am hoping is that next year comes by faster because I am definitely going to the US then. As it is, I am already getting withdrawal symptoms from not havin/shopping at

  • Huge outlet malls
  • Costco!!
  • In and out burgers
  • Mexican food
  • Paper source stores
  • Bry’s mom’s Korean food
  • 100+channels on cable

I had resin on my hands ALL day today. UGH. It’s SUCH a pain when that happens. I had to scrub my hands a million times to get the sticky stuff off them. :-/ Today was basically a wasted day. I’m NEVER NOT using gloves to deal with resin! NEVER!

However, I still got to squeeze in creating a couple pieces of jewelry:



Precious stones and glass tiles with Swarovski crystals. What a lovely combination.

Aight, gonna try to hit the Vic Mart tomorrow morning @ 730. Better get ready for bed now.
