Wheel of Heart

I made this crochet fillet heart so I'll be able to join in Toni's February Blog Carnival (for the first time I intended to join).
This one is an attempt to make something out of my own imagination after I saw a cute crochet heart. I am currently writing its pattern. Actually , I am planning to make a stuffed heart out of this simple heart pattern. ^_^

Ask Angela

Ms. Eva lend me this book last Monday during lunch break. She was so enthusiastic while handing it to me. She even told me a gist.

I didn't read it immediately though(which was my usual response when receiving a a loaned book)simply because it is about a dog (I was not a fan of dogs, I am a pussy lover). So I left it in my bookshelf until I decide to browse it this morning.

I told myself "I shouldn't have delayed reading it." I admit that the book touched my heart. I have realized a lot of simple and important things from this book. Those things that I have neglected since I can not remember when.

Here are some:

* Count your blessings.

* There really isn't any special place that we're going to, like a destination. It's all in the walking. So lighten up and enjoy the trip and sniffs.

* Life goes better with someone to play with.

* Trust and affection may come as gifts, but are most often earned through patience and an open heart.

* Make a fuss over friends you see. Greet them as if it's been years since the last time you met... Really share your glee because every one deserves to be treated like a celebrity once in a while.

* When giving a hug, be polite and ask first. Notice that in a hug there is no difference between the hugger and the hugged. Hugging is an equal opportunity way of giving what you need to get, ang getting what you need to give.

* Even when you adore someone, keep in mind that everyone needs some room for their own body. Everybody takes up space and needs some free air around them to breathe. It is real act of love not to rowd or smother with love the one you love.

* For thrills and excitement, take the road less traveled. There is nothing like a new views and fresh frangrances to add bounce to your step.

* Set aside five minutes for quite each day. Allow nothing to get accomplished in this period.

* Recognize how you feel when you're scared. Grow used to it. Don't plan on doing anything really courageous without it.

* Daydream.

This book is very inspiring. It is empowering. The approach of the author is also awesome. This is a must read.

Trials and Washing machine

Trials like washing machine, twist us, spin us, and knock us around.But in the end, we come out cleaner, brighter, and better than before.

Indeed. Things that appear difficult, tiring, and time-consuming are actually the ones that bring the best in us in the end. They may hurt us in the process, but they are the ones that lingers.

Another reminder from Jen (thru SMS). Thanks!

This post I viewed form Toni is very empowering. I'll definitely have a hard copy of this handy.

You are the apple of my eyes

This key chain apple was made out of sheer experiment. The pattern for apple coaster I was following, then, indicated to use a worsted thread, which I do not have, so I used mercerized thread instead. Presto is this key chain apple! Does it looks like an apple? I hope so.

Pen Pal Acorn

Recently, I made an amigurumi acorn (thanks to planetjune.com for the free pattern. It reminds me of Sir Henry who frequently used it as example during his discussions on our Philosophy subjects way back my college days. I made my crocheted acorn into a pen pal by weaving 50 chains that serves as tie. However, Suzie asked for it and used it as her ID accesory.

I'll post pix soon.
