New Template (and other rants)

Hey! Look! It's Superman!


I am now joining one of the few people using the classic "old" templates on blogspot/blogger.
Why? Well, I was frustrated when I saw that my customizations were not done by my old template, and the share buttons did not appear at all. Now, that would be bad for you, right? I mean, how were you going to share it in one click? But rest assured, I have now revert back to classic, black glasses, secretary look (not the hot, naughty ones, the bookworm ones), to give you the "sharing" statisfaction!

About that too, apparently I removed the followers widget a long time ago without realizing it.. So for those of you who were devastated by it, you can go follow me now ;)

Well, since I'm gonna post something, I might as well rant here. I will probably get to decorate my newly improved space between now and the next two years, so I have been looking at DIY home decorations and the likes, like the cereal box creations by Michele. I'll tell you again if I actually made any. But she made practically all her stuff with cereal boxes and toilet paper roll, and I rarely get them at home, so maybe I should buy stuff first to be recycled (kinda beats the purpose eh?) Heck, I'll find a subtitute.

I am now working on a 100 dreams poster! You should also do it. Without writing them down, dreams usually end up as a passing (things you say/think and forget on the spot). Especially because it is a poster (assuming that you put it in a strategic location), you will end up looking at them every day of your life, making you remember. And DO something. There is this guy that is (or was, I'm not sure) famous in Indonesia for completing his 100 dreams list (even getting to study in Japan) and is now on his way to the next 100. He is a living proof of the use of the 100 dreams poster.

Printable Sewing Cards by Minieco

A simple idea, you know you've seen it multiple times, but the idea just doesn't come to you. That is how I feel when I see Minieco's printable sewing cards. Although the idea is simple and you know this is not the first time seeing it, you (well, at least I) had not have any ideas about this at all!

Rather than buying them on the stores (which are usually from wood), you can now make it yourself. Most of these things are not something used over and over, storing wood will just take up space.

You can use this for a bonding time with your younger siblings, cousins, nephews, or nieces (you yourself have a choice of doing this with them or the actual sewing if you can stay out of harm's way in front of the actual needles), gifts for those younger ones, and even wall arts!

The only things you need are:
A printer
Colored cards (or you can color the printed white card)
Hole puncher
Blunt needle
Button or bead (though you can skip this and just tie the ends together)

Adding on to my rant on how I never thought of this, now that I see it made, I am getting inspired, so maybe you will see the randomest, weirdest creations that are sewing cards related :p

Don't forget to check out Minieco's tutorials for things like you very own DIY invisible ink, magic potions, and cardboard bells that would look really cool as a home decoration.
Aaalsooooo, look at this boredom busters and get inspired ;)
