Minutes DIY : Old jeans to Pencilcase roll (No sew project)

It's close to the end of school season.
Mei Mei turns "Grumpy" today because she have some trouble
with her coloring pencils.

Well, the original paper case for the color pencil got wore off.
I offer her a small plastic drinking bottle to keep
all her color pencils but her still not happy.
The color pencils are all in various length and size.

However, Mei Mei still  prefer to have her color pencil 'display'
 in a proper manner when she used them.

Well, just my luck.
I saw a piece of old corduroy laying nearby,
(actually I plan to reused it for something else)

I cut a piece of fabric from the pants.

cut 2 row of tiny holes along the length

Now, everyone is lining up like a rainbow
Hope you like this impromptu DIY. 

Have a nice day and thanks for drop by.

TP rolls toy Binoculars - easy n cute

Today is Mei Mei arts class again
This week her homework is TP rolls binoculars...

After browsing through Pinterest...
She still not happy with the samples she found...

So, this is her creations after some 'upgrade' from
what she learn from the internets...

She did it within an hour.
Yes, she is very proud of her works
and so am I.

She used some old strings which I salvaged earlier from
old drinking bottle (the green and blue ones)

Cut some flower shape cardboard...for the 'lens'
wrap the lens with large roll of sticky tape / cellophane tapes
to make an 'easy instant ' lens'  glass.

Connect the tp rolls with a empty staples bullets box.
wrap with color paper and decor with washi tapes.

Add to little cute eraser owls to enhance the 'watch out' level.
Love it!

How to keep your cabbage fresh and crunchy for months without fridge!

I love to prepare veggies for dinner.
And weather in fresh market or shopping mall
veggies is always cheaper when you bought in whole or per package quantity.

My family love veggies...but we certainly unable to
finish on whole cabbage in a day.

And when I stored the leftover cabbage in fridge.... it always turn 'soft' and 'sleepy'!

So, this is my solution
In this way, some say by this method, the cabbage can last for 3 months...
I'm not sure about that...but I'm certainly sure it would last for 1 month...because mine did!!!!

I cut it cross way into circles

And when I combine two circles together....

Voila!!!  I have a small little sewing hoop!

Must do back to school tools - ..Drinking bottle + Sharpener

As a mom, I always have to choose between..

A) A clean house
B) Happy kids

And of course... I believe (B) is a a better choice.
But I can't stand 'messy' house.

So...today...while the little one is doing her favourite pass time activity...coloring

Yes...the little girl understand how her mom would react when seeing
the sharpener waste 'fly' and ' landed' on the freshly mopped floor.
She really did try very hard by holding the sharpening 'inside' the rubbish bin.

Poor thing...she more concentrate in the sharpening process then enjoying the coloring process.

So... something suddenly comes into my mind....

I'm too busy to write down the tutorial...(need to do cleaning....)
hope the pictures flow above helps.

Have a nice day!

How to help your children find they talent?

I know this is a very serious question
This are one of the many questions that running through my mind
whenever I unable to sleep at night

Laying on my bed...having my kids in my arms 
Looking at the stars and wondering
how to make my kids as bright as the star when they grow up one day!

And of course...I never have a satisfied answer or solution
As a mom...I teach, I guide, I supervise, I pray for them.

And finally...something happened!
