Hey Kessy's Messy Washi Party!

Mansy of Hey Kessy is holding a Messy Washi Party next month at Pipino in Teacher's Village!

Basically, it's going to be a fun get-together where crafty and creative people get to make "simple and fun projects with washi tape, baker's twine, and other craft materials". Everyone is encouraged to make their own projects, and the best one will even receive a prize from the organizers.

For a fee, you get to receive tons of crafting goodies, and 8 rolls of washi tape! Check out the Hey Kessy blog for all the details, it's all totally worth it! And as with all crafternoons at Pipino, the participants will be served free snacks and drinks too.

I really wanna join, but I have another event to go to that day (which I'm hoping to postpone for another day haha). I feel really sore for not being able to join in the fun -- and partake of all those goodies too! Slots are limited, so if you don't want to feel bad like me, you should definitely register as soon as you can!

Trying my hand at calligraphy

I never had any handwriting classes. Ever! I went to 6 different schools growing up, and it was so unlucky that the school I went to in Grade 3 only had handwriting classes in Grade 4. When I transferred to another school the following year, I found out that they only taught handwriting in Grade 3.

Another AD attack!

I haven't been diagnosed with ADD and I don't claim to have it. But when it comes to my crafting, I can't seem to focus on any one thing for long. Tons of WIPs going on right now! I'm sure almost all crafters have the same situation though.

So aside from all those WIPs that I've been posting the past coupla weeks, I've also been practicing my tiny origami skills! Oh man, I used to think I was an ace in origami, but using 3cm x 3cm pieces of paper is really difficult!

Here's my first try with a classic origami pattern that has a LOT of folding involved:

Halfway done!

Itty-bitty crabs!

I was planning on making a tiny pair of crab earrings, but I still haven't finished coating them with some kind of waterproofing finish. I bought two new bottles of ModPodge, but I'm not sure if ModPodge'll make 'em sturdy enough to be worn often as earrings. Gonna try 'em out first. I'd rather not use those hardcore wood lacquers on my tiny origami.

This weekend is running out. These little 'uns will have to wait 'til next week before they can start clinging onto my earlobes.
