Due to financial constraints I was not able to purchase the polymer clay which excites me for almost a month. Actually I keep on visiting the online store of Makin’s Clay here in the Philippines, hoping that someday I’ll buy this sticky thing and form into something adorable memorabilia.

I was inspired by erosejazz clay creation which was featured in “Kabuhayang Swak na Swak!” Which was aired last October 11, 2009.

Through her online store I learned about the Makin’s no bake clay through Ginger's Beadworks; it’s another online store. (well erosejazz is using Sculpey that needs to be baked). Which I also wanted to try (if I have my own oven).

Since then it became part of my morning routine peeking on this Makin’s Clay Online store or sometimes thesculpeyman online store.

So for the meantime I use this modeling clay bought at National Bookstore. First thing that comes in my mind is to make a 1 cm wide sunflower and a rose. But I decided to make the latter.

Whew! I thought it’s easy. The clay is so sticky and it’s hard to form into petals because it sags. Anyway here’s my output. It’s not bad after all. What do you think?

I won Duni's Tote Bag

Me? Winner of the fabulous bag by Duni of Lovely Purses?

Wait am I reading the e-mail right?

Hey Marianne! Wake-up! You’re dreaming!!!

Nope! No, am not!!!!


 Yepey! I won the bag!!!!!

Well actually, I was screaming when I read the comment from Duni (through my e-mail).

Screaming, laughing…. and oooohhhhh….  I almost cried. Really!

I’m honestly exuberating with happiness when I read the message! LOL…..

Another I can’t wait!!!! Hahahaha…….

Immediately I visited Duni’s blog.

I cannot view my name nor other names. It thrills me. Maybe I’m just daydreaming. When I tried to view the comments, there were already 8 comments congratulating Mary Ann! Oh no! I’m MARIANNE! I think it’s all false alarm.  Huhuhu……..LOL……

But I’m wondering how did they know the winner? Hmm maybe there’s something on the space which I cannot view. So I decided to view Duni’s blog in other browser – Mozilla.

Now I found out that it’s not a space. It’s the video of how Duni chose the winner of her Lovely giveaway bag.

Although, I haven't seen the name because of the poor video streaming, I still believe I won the fabulous bag. Look at the screen shot below. LOL


 Yehey! It’s me! Hahahahaha……

Thanks a lot Duni! I will really treasure it!!!!

I can't wait.....

There’s something really excites me these past few days. It’s clay art.

Despite my super busy life, my mind is wandering what to create with the clay. Although I haven’t purchase one I am now starting to inquire about the no bake clay.

Actually I’m tempted to spend my last money in my pocket last Saturday. LOL…. I really can’t wait. My hands are now scratchy as if wanted to try it right away. That’s why I bought modeling clay available in the bookstore instead.

But I promise myself, after I finish this bulk of requirements in school I will really purchase this no bake clay.

Spoolie Doll

I was scanning the “Crafting & Decorating” craft book given to me by my sister. There are so many projects that interest me. But I don’t have the materials. There are many terms of materials which I’m not familiar with and was not available in the local stores.

I happen to scan on the page of dolls. I find it very cute. Although I don’t have large beads to use to make it, so I only use the beads available in my bead box. I found the cute wooden beads and abaca rope and decided to make one.

I was able to finish it within 5 minutes. It’s my first time to make a spoolie doll. Yet I feel like an expert. LOL….Well… well… it’s a very easy-to-do craft. Even non-crafter can string miniature wood spools and beads on a twine to create a delightful mini-people.

Interested to make one? Leave a comment and I’ll show you how.

Bookmarks by Kids

My nieces will join a Girl Scout encampment. They wanted me to help them with their giveaways – a book mark. I told them that I can’t help since I was busy. Actually their mad at me when I said no. (LOL….) They told me about my promised of art session with them. According to them I keep on promising yet I do not have time with them. Poor kids… poor me… LOL….

But I think it’s time for them to do arts independently. Because since they we’re young they always made me draw, color and do arts. So to please them I gave my art materials instead. Although this means I’m giving up all of my art materials. Well because they still do not know yet the technique of saving space and budgeting craft paper.
When I came home from schooling they showed me with their output and I was really amazed with their bookmarks! I love it! I’m so proud with them. They really had improved a lot. 

The bookmarks has no text yet. They wanted me do it for them because they love my handwriting. Hmmm…. I think I need to teach them the different techniques of lettering.

P.S. I was also surprised with all the craft papers thrown in the garbage bin. Most of them are still usable… Now I know what to teach them aside from lettering. Get it? LOL….
