Yoda knit hat

I knitted a Yoda hat for my son a while ago but wanted to share it.

IMG_20170725_081316_582.jpgMy husband really wanted a Yoda knit hat for our son, I was going to buy one for him  cause  I can only knit scarves  and my crocheting skills are horrible. But I found this you tube video and you can do the whole thing using a circular loom which makes it soooo much easier and quicker to knit a hat. The ears can also be done on the loom which is pretty neat. I used to loom knit Barbie dresses as  a kid so this was a piece of cake.

I learned how to sew

Hi everyone

In January I was finishing up my year of maternity leave and was getting ready to go back to work. I had so much anxiety and needed an  outlet. I had fortunately received (picked out of the garbage) a sewing machine which my mother in law was going throw out from one of her estate sales. I learned how to sew by watching a YouTube video that Gertie (Gretchen Hirsch) had made. It is such a no nonsense video and my first project were her napkins, then I did the clutch (lol mine looked more like a pencil case because of the fabric I used) . But this video gave me a running start.

If you’re planning on learning to sew. I highly recommend this video 😊

Happy Sewing!

DIY Painting Tutorial on Youtube

Hello Lovelies 🙂

I love the concept of paint nite. Where you go to  an art class at a local bar and you pay  to have a drink and paint for the evening with an instructor  guiding you through  a pre-planned painting. What a way to de-stress and have  fun with  friends.  It takes away thinking  and planning of an artwork. Which allows you to  focus on enjoying the process itself.

I love painting on my own but sometime  its so  hard or takes too long to come up with your own idea for a painting. I just want to pick up the paint brush and PAINT and destress!!

I found some  DIY painting tutorials on youtube that you can follow along and I love them. I  would love to invite my  friends over for some drinks and  follow a painting tutorial one day mimicking paint nite.

Here is what I ended up with  following a  video on Youtube.

Here’s the video I followed in order to achieve  my painting. I hope you  try this DIY and  enjoy yourself!

 

I’ve always wanted to write a blog…

I’ve always wanted  to write a blog, so  here goes nothing!

I  used to have an online journal, actually  now that I  think of it  I  used to spend a lot of my time as a teen  writing on live journal, deviant art, asianavenue ( why did I  ever let my best friend talk me into making a profile?..lol) my space ,  geocities website.  I  remember a lot of those pages required you  to know  some HTML  in order to  post  a picture or add a link.

In the past 5 years  I’ve been working non-stop.  Seriously I was trying to squeeze in time to sleep and see my loved ones.  I’ve been  working with my head down for so long I’m out of the loop with internet. Seriously  just found out what  the point of a hash tag was (OMG I’m getting old)

Things have slowed  down a  bit,  that or I’m getting better at this  balancing act as  chemist, fiance, aspiring marathon runner, closet artist, dog owner, home owner, soccer player and now blogger.

I created this blog so that I can  share with others  my personal experiences, passions, and ideas. So I  hope you join me  on my  blog  journey .
