From my last post I mentioned that I stayed home all day today, and because my parents are so giddy about the Tagaytay home that will be completed in less than 2 months, I decided to try out making decoupage stuff to be used for the house. I got my passion for crafting from my Lola (grandmom), she loves DIY stuff, and she loves customizing everything and so does my mom who loves to make everything around the house a "conversation piece".
My mom's eyeing a lot of auctions on ebay for switch and outlet cover plates that bear country designs. Speaking of Country Theme, thats what they want the Tagaytay House to bear, a home-y, country, warm theme -- perfect for relaxing.
So this afternoon, I decided to warm up my crafty hands for a sample of the outlet cover plate that my mom is dying to have.
Here's the sample :
I ran out of clear matte spray-on acrylic so the finish is still not at its best, still needs a little more "polishing" with a top coat but my parents love this.
I also revamped the switchplates on my room :
Looks like its for a kid's room, right? LOL!
After doing those samples, I reorganized my newly acquired post-its, stickers and mini stationeries
Its only a portion of my entire stash, these are the ones I use often, hence the backups for really cutesy ones. Haha!
A little peek of what's inside this mini-crate :
These are supposed to be used as decorative index cards for foreign language students, but I got them since I wanna use them as unique Gift Cards, I love that they come in sturdy, reusable cardboard boxes too! :)
Whats inside the boxes -- cards with assorted cute prints.
This one I really find cute, I got this from Fully Booked.
These Tenorikuma Pads I already have since college, I think I got like 6 of this design and all i have now are 2 pads. :)
These ones I got from eBay the other day, I bought all 6 designs because they match the Korean Stickers I purchased about a month ago.
I bought 4 packs of this before (Here), but I already ran out so I bought 4 more packs, combined them and came up with 2 packs which would be easier to store.
These Holographic stickers are so cute.
Thats why I think its worthy to hoard on these. LOL!
Korean Deco Tapes from eBay. They sell for Php 30.00 per roll. Theyre super cute, I always catch my mom stealing a few rolls from my stash. Haha!
Printed Envelopes. I dunno where I could use them but theyre cute so I had to get them at Functional.
My Kokeshi Post-It stash, each pack contains 3 sets of the post-its, Talk about combining several packs in one again. LOL!
I hate boring planners, so I always hoard on printed planner refills. :)
And lastly, take a peek at my planner, this one's more like a kiddo's but kiddos dont need planners anyway, so I guess this one's created for the kid-at-heart. I got this for just Php 80.00 at Cash and Carry.
I bought the mirror separately for Php 20.00, if I remember correctly.
The cover unfolds to reveal card slots and pockets for other whatnots.
The cute sesame street cover. :)
Sesame Street Theme is all over the planner. From the weekly/monthly portion to the addressbook and memo section. Even has a separate page for Sesame Street Planner stickers!
Planner has a zippy pochette at the back for receipts, but I use it to store my (and hun's) extra pictures (you can actually see thru it a bit from this picture).
Here's a sticker sheet that I tote around all the time but never got the guts to use since its one-of-a-kind.
The stickers are shaped like puzzle pieces. Havent seen anything like it before.
My planner is one of the reasons why kids love digging through my bag, need I say more? ^_^
My blog will be back to regular programming (beauty blogging) tomorrow. :)
Will be posting the drafts I made over the weekend after finalizing and proofreading them (taray! may proofreading LOL!)
So there, that wraps up another kiddie and crafty post. :)
Stay Fab, Everyone!
