Crochet earrings... My most favorite accessory!

I truly count on a pair of earrings to compliment whatever I'm wearing, it's my most favorite accessory. I got excited to follow video tutorials on crochet earrings, of course by Marcelle - OVW and Teresa - tjw1963. These lovely ladies are the greatest!
This is the Khloe earrings by Teresa. The original pattern has 6 sides, I only made 5 sides on these.
These are my current favorites. OVW's Cascade Earrings. I love the details on the design.
Teresa's Nicole earrings. Reminds me of the sun.. And summer.
I lightly starched them to make them stay in shape. I hope to wear them one of these days. I just love them! <3

Mother's Day 2012 (Missing my Mama a lot)

It's been almost 6 years now since Mama passed away, I miss her everyday. Being the only women in the family, we get to spend time together. We share our thoughts on the latest novel that we read, she's so much fun to talk to. She was the typical office girl, she bought me lots of make-up because I look too plain. But I'm not able to use them because my skin gets really itchy when I put make-up on. She was happy when I buy girly stuff for myself, like shoes and bags and clothes. I remember her often reminding me to bring home some sweet goodies when I go home from work, I miss seeing the happy and excited expression on her face when I walked in the door. I miss our movie dates, the way she clings on to my arm or she holds my hand while we walked. I miss the fun times we make mango float and fruit salad together, she gladly volunteered to mix the condensed milk and cream together because she gets to taste it. I miss everything about her. How I wish you're here Ma. I love you very much.

What's in my bag?

I got inspired with Kate's (from The Small Things Blog) blog entries lately and I thought of sharing to y'all what's in my granny square crochet bag as well. :)
Okay, I'd like to start off with my 2 cellphones. Yeah I have 2 cellphones. The red one is I think a Nokia 101 and it's dual sim, I have sims from 2 different networks in here. heheh. My Samsung Galaxy Young is just the greatest phone I've had in my life, I can go online wherever and whenever I want. But I only access to the internet in a WiFi zone so I won't get billed for internet usage. hahah! Well, moving forward... I have my favorite comb handy, can't leave the house without it. I make sure to bring my handy dandy tape measure with me as well just in case I need it. And the yellow thing below the tape measure is a menthol cone, one of my most favorite things in the world. I like it because I just have to rub it on my temples and nauseous feeling just goes away in no time. I bring along my favorite scent, Charlie Silver. Charlie White is another favorite. And to keep track of my daily activities, my planner is always with me. And I bring my sunglasses along when I feel like wearing it, to protect my eyes from the summer heat. I also keep big and small-sized crochet hooks and a pair of scissors in my bag just in case I get stuck and need to wait in a very long line or simply when I get bored, I'd just go ahead and buy some yarn. Crocheting just makes my day. Then there's my purple pen, my planner just can't live without it. I keep 2 flavors of my favorite Victoria's Secret lipgloss and a pack of tissue. Oh, I forgot to include my house keys on the photo. I think that's the most important thing to bring when I get out of the house. nyaheheh.  :-D
So far these are the important things that I need when I get out of the house. And I hope you enjoy reading my entry as well... Till next time. Thanks and God bless you all.  ;)
