Succulents Sahaja


A recent recce trip for an event to Cameron Highlands reawakened my love for succulents, especially the type that look like blooming flowers like the ones pictured above. These might make an appearance at the Markets this Saturday by the way, so stay tuned for an update!

DIY: Corsage Pendants

I think my heart did a little pirouette when I saw this adorable wearable posy that came with a little tutorial. You know me… I love flowers & the fact that these are meant to be worn like a necklace is just fabulous.

Rebus Valentine

I love, love, love this simple Valentine’s card that you can download & print for free over at Martha Stewart’s Craft Department blog. According to the description, it incorporates old fashioned rebuses & if you’re like me & went “huh?? What the heck is a rebus?” I looked it up on Wikipedia: “a rebus is an allusional device that uses pictures to represent words or parts of words.” Well, isn’t that nifty? Don’t forget to print this out for your Valentine dears!

DIY: Love Notes

With Valentine’s day just around the corner, I’m sure many of you are scrambling (or at least will be scrambling) looking for that perfect little love token for your loved ones. I like to make my man a simple handmade card & this little number pictured above is right up my alley. Here’s the tutorial.

Qais’ Dino Party!

dino cake that Rozaila bought. I'll need to find out where she got it from because it's so incredibly cute!
Hey dreamers! Here are some pictures from the event I styled & what kept me away from the blog for a solid two weeks. The 6 year old birthday boy loves dinosaurs, so his Mummy Rozaila & I came up with a green & blue polka dot theme with dinos (of course) for his birthday party at Bangsar Shopping Center’s Jungle Gym. It was such a pleasure working on this event as Rozaila trusted me implicitly & if you’ve ever had to work with someone, you’d know that trust makes any sort of work that much easier! Scroll over the images for a description.
table set up. covered the existing (ugly) tables with kraft paper which the kids could then scibble with the color pencils i left at each table. 
the goodie bag. each kid that attended received an unbleached cotton bag with a screen printed dino & stamped with their name, a customised dino "Colorsaurus" coloring book & a "Sweetievore" candy pack. all pieces were designed & handmade by yours truly.

Juggler Extraordinaire

Wow. Life has been busy but it’s a good sort of busy, alhamdulillah. I’m juggling a few things at the moment, so this leave of absence from the blog will be extended till I have time to breathe. In the meantime, here are some shots from my iPhone & Instagram (look me up – mimpimurni) over the last couple of weeks. As usual, scroll over for a description ;)

Cik Leha the kitty. I found her in a box & took her home to foster. She was adopted on CNY eve & I miss her terribly.
