1aMonth Challenge, Sunday Hike and Bead Show..

So I'm challenging myself to focus on just one clay technique for the span of one month! I'll try to come up with one design a week using the specific technique I chose for that month. So at the end of that month, ill be having four new designs! Sounds good right?:)

I'm a scatter brain when it comes to making designs. So many ideas enter my mind all at the same time. I'm so overwhelmed at times with all the techniques I read and "how to" videos I watch. Sometimes I don't know where to start and what to do first. I think this plan will give me focus. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will help! :P

I'm getting more excited to do this challenge the more I type this post. LOL!

I'll be sharing with you what technique I plan to do at the start of each month. I'll try to blog about what I made at the end of each week. (sana talaga magawa ko..hahaha)

So for this month, I'm planning to learn this technique by Barb Fajardo. Here's a picture of her work that I plan to try. So pretty right? :)

Wish me luck!:)

Yesterday, I had a wonderful day with Marlon and Liam! After hearing mass, we spent our day around Sydney Olympic Park. It was really one huge place! We walked going from one park to another. Australia really is a beautiful place! I love seeing different kinds of birds living in the city! Here are pics of our very enjoyable day..

Liam and Daddy played while I was in the Gems and Bead show :P

We passed by beautiful mangroves on our way to the water park.

We also passed by the Ring the middle is a lake!

At last, we reached the water park where Liam happily played!

We were really tired but happy :)

  1. There are many advantages in using magnetic clasps. The most know advantage will be that it helps to securely bond the elements together. We can see a clasps in almost every jewelry, whether it is a bangle or an ear ring. A magnetic clasp can make the jewelry much more attractive. More over these it has some scientifically proven advantages. The continuous use of these helps in increasing the oxygen supply to the blood, which in turn create heat among the body tissues.
