I found this concept somewhere on the interwebs (i have no idea where) but loved the idea so much that I ended up doing it for my wedding.

All this takes is some 18-20 gauge wire — I bought a roll from from home depot, but you can buy this wire at any craft store — some wire clippers and some candy.

Step 1: Cut a 7-8 inch piece of wire (or longer or shorter depending on how tall you want your name-tag holder to be

Step 2: Create a 1 inch circle on one end of the wire

Step 3: Twirl the other end of the wire closely around 2-3 times (think key-ring style)

Step 4: Adhere weight (in this case, the candy) to the bottom of the wire.

Ta-da! You’re done in less than a minute! Of course, if you’re like us and are making 250 of these, then it can get pretty rough.

If you’re like me, and just happened to use brown and gold as your decor, a ferero rocher will work out perfectly!

A WTF moment.

It’s a little late, but here’s what I made a few weeks ago for a Valentines Day ice cream social and dance.

These are made with my favorite sugar cookie recipe from martha stewart… I think the secret is really in the buttermilk. I always get compliments on these, so if you ever get a chance, you should try making these yourselves!

Peach jelly cookies

Sakura & ume blossoms – they were supposed to be pink and white, but I didn’t put enough red food coloring in


Everyone together now…

Been working on increasing the amount of loli-inspired stuff in my closet. Here’s how to get a sailor loli outfit quick and cheap.

(via FanPlusFriend)

Buy a $5.99 skirt.

Alter it to fit.

Find a whole bunch of trims and lace.

Sew them on

Yay! :) A 1 hour 6 dollar sailor lolita outfit!

Fun and economical. :) I probably should have put on some proper tights and mary janes, but we were going out that day and I wanted to be more casual.

Let’s start over. Somewhere along the way I lost sight of why I began writing you in the first place. Swept up in the idea that I had to entertain others, I’ve become paranoid about writing anything at all. I hate how I began to regiment my blogging so that I could have enough content for days to come. I hate that it began to feel like a chore and not a hobby. And what I hate the most is that I began to feel that you were of no worth if no one read you.

This only lead to me losing out on my favorite part of you– being able to look back on my life and seeing all the things that I had accomplished or was proud of. I feel like I’m missing a whole year of my life! You are of immeasurable worth to me. I’m really the only one who needs you, in the end… but somehow I let myself forget about that.

So with that… Let’s start again. With the right attitude this time.

Your owner,

My favorite artist, Utada Hikaru, is coming out with a second American CD! I loved her first one, but it was somewhat of a flop here in America (Even though a lot of songs were produced by Timberland…go figure).. Anyways… A single was recently released and I think it sounds GREAT!

Check it out:

My perennial favorite, Utada Hikaru, is coming out with another American CD! So excited for it!

The new single is GREAT! I’m so glad she decided to go back to her old style (although I do like her exodus CD) I think she’s at her best with this type of song.
