Tokidoki Jewelry

As ya’ll know, I love tokidoki stuff.. But I’ve never been able to bring myself to buy their jewelry, even though I think it’s way adorable! I’m just not a huge fan of spending money on costume jewelry.

Anyhow, that didn’t stop me from taking a hand at making my own tokidoki jewlery out of shrinkydink!!  If I do say so myself, they came out pretty darn cute! :)

Total cost: about $5.00
Materials: ink-jet shrinkydink, metal chain, metal hoops, clasps, bits of ribbon
Tools: Pliers, scissors, printer, adobe photoshop, google
Time: about 2 hours

=] I can’t wait to find a situation in which i can wear these!!

Wedding stuff

In order to reduce the cost of the wedding, I’ve decided to make and arrange all the flowers for my wedding [with help, ofcourse!] … Anyhow, by calculations, in order to make 660[how much origami paper I bought] flowers, I need ato make about 3 a day until the wedding. So far in 4 days since I started, I’ve been able to make 150! Yay~

Additionally, I’ve begun prototyping ideas for flower arrangements for the wedding, starting with the bridesmaids flowers! Let me know what you think.

Alright! 150 down, only 600 more to go!!

Tokidoki Collection part 2

I swear this is the last of it… =] I just felt like showing off some more. Also, once again, damn this camera phone! Wow. Apparently, I’ve spent over $1500 on tokidoki stuff. Amazing.

All my purses + wallet together in their glory. Wow! They take up a lot of space!

Here’s the one that was signed by the person who created tokidoki!

Bambinone in Vacanze

(shown, bambino in vacanze, but close enough! I couldn’t find baminone in this pattern :()

What a great run… I’m kind of bummed that I don’t have anything from the Summer 2007 season, though! I totally thought that Amore was a part of that season, but apparently they were separate! :(T

My desk at work

Excuse the bad quality of my recent line of pictures, since my camera’s broken, all I have access to is my cell phone camera. :)

Anyhow, here’s a picture of part of my desk at work. :)Â These guys make my day brighter every day.

Sticker Picture Frenzy

Here’s a secret: I’m obsessed with sticker pictures. I have a collection of over 100 sticker pic sets :) Not so much lately, because no one ever wants to do it anymore!! .. But here are some recent ones taken in the $10.00 type sticker booths.

Me and teh boyfriend.

San Francisco Trip
We’re just goofballs. :)

You can’t tell, but I was suffering from the flu here.


I constructed these counters using nothing more than the vague idea of having a wheel-type counter that could go up to 99 (without having a bunch of tiny numbers on one wheel). They were designed in Photoshop using a lot of printing, measuring, and cutting.

If there’s enough interest, perhaps I’ll post the pattern. :)

Materials: Heavy cardstock, two brads each, clear packing tape
Created with: Photoshop, Printer, Xacto knife, scissors

Engineering: about 3 hours [and lots of paper scraps :)]
Creation of each counter: about 15 minutes

–To date, I’ve made about 13-15 counters
