tee-you-yee-ass-day

earlier on i suddenly had the urge to do something about all the shoes i’m not wearing… realised i have like 5 pairs of ballet flats that i haven’t touched in ages, 3 are from Rubi, one from Guess and the other is from Sam Edelman.

so this pair of white ones from Rubi, i swear i only wore them once at most… and they’ve been chucked in the cupboard since the last i wore them… they looked so dead and boring (i started wondering why i bought them in the first place..) so i decided to give them a new lease of life!

meet my boxy monsters :)

they’re nice monsters! i added some blank speech bubbles and random splats… what do monsters talk about anyway? i’m not entirely done with the design, but it’s shaping up nicely i reckon. now i have reason to wear these white flats! i do hope i can wear them, they’re a size 38 and recently i’ve been getting heels in size 39 and they fit better… this pair squishes my toes abit…

shrink toes shrink!

ben is always teasing about how big my feet are.. i know, for someone who’s only 1.6m tall, size 39 feet are pretty out of proportion? :S

anyway, my right thumb has been hurting quite abit since yesterday, and i really have no idea why! it just really hurts when i move it in a certain direction.. i can’t even hold a pair of scissors without it hurting… so sewing has been quite a challenge… but that didn’t stop me! i sewed 2 phone cosies today…

the white rabbit from Alice In Wonderland with his famous line….

and this one’s for April! kinda reminds me of the red rose garden in Alice in Wonderland?

oh well, i guess i’ve done enough sewing for today, maybe even for this week…. 3 days till i turn 25, i’m actually getting a little jumpy. how come no one has asked me what cake i want? do i always have to order my own cake??? -_-

i was supposed to have dinner with ben at popeyes today, he promised. butttt, thanks to the army, promises always get broken. which is why i say, someone needs to pen a survival guide for girls who have boyfriends in the army. seriously…

IT’S MENTAL & EMOTIONAL TORTURE!

Love from The UK!

amanda purchased the cheshire cat iphone cosy and the drink me ring, and sent her love all the way from the uk!

thanks much amanda, for the sweet gesture :)

ps : if you can’t get enough of alice in wonderland, more alice-inspired items to be released this week! i won’t say when, so stick around!

love, jean
