When I was teaching in my class,I saw a plain pencil case made of rough material. I asked the girl'where did you buy it?'.She told me that she bought it at a supermarket.Do you know why I asked her? I have something in my mind..I can turn it to a unique piece of work..you can put felt craft to make it beautiful..you can put unique colourful buttons, beads or sew embroideries. I am sure it will become beautiful..the cheap plain pencil case will become great or at least different from others. If you make it for your kids,I am sure you will get the order from their classmates soon..and do not forget to put their names too.

Do you want to go to any occasion that you do not have time to sew beads to beautify your dress? Here, I would like to suggest you to sew beautiful colourful French Laces on your 'kurung'and scatter some pearl beads or crystals..instead you can choose the opposite colours such as red lace on black material or vice versa. You can always try pink lace on green material..I am sure it will be nice.

Do you like to sew bags on your own? Where did you buy the bag handle? Some people like to make their own bag handle from the material itself,or they can easily buy the cotton webbing at the craft shop, Also,there are various types of bag handle from rattan,plastic, fibre or wood, .. anyhow, it is not that easy to find such handle..so come and get it at my shop Galeri Manik..for handmade bag lovers, happy sewing. I saw my friend,Sue made the bag from 'batik sarung'cloth..it's beautiful..just add further embellishments of beads..it will be unique for sure.

Most of the beautiful blouses sold at the market are mostly for those S,M and L sizes.At my age and most of my colleagues too, would prefer bigger one of XL,XXL and even XXXL (actually, the truth is not prefer but HAVE to!).So,they are quite limited to choose from( not for pregnant ladies'fashion eh?)..if we like it, hmm.. no size.To overcome this, my friend and I decided to attend a sewing class for sewing big extra large blouses.I think it is high time for us to produce it to cater their needs.May be we can sew handmade thread embroidery or beads to make it beautiful..we can make from soft-coloured cotton..I think it will be nice.Any suggestion from you,friend? or any order?(just kidding)

Good morning my dear blog visitors..As usual I am always eager to tell you my recent beads project.Just to share ideas..sharing is caring. Recently, I bought a pair of sandals, so I modified it so that it is unique.You want to know how? I sew beads, crystals and pearls on top of it..then you will look different! You can put colourful beads by sewing to the canvas or the ribbons on it.I am sure your business begins now..sure your friend will like it too. So,better start taking orders now.Actually, I take this idea from Malacca where the Nyonya sandals are usually sewn with beads.

In 1986, I went to Birmingham to visit my hubby who's attending a course there..While visiting several places,I did not forget to go to the market. I was so fascinated by the wonderful laces!There are variety of them and mostly white in colour.The wide one was gorgeous that I can make so many things like pillow, cushions,table runner and so on. Besides laces, there were also ready-made laced curtains..the frills were lacey.But..unfortunately, I did not have much cash then (I did buy some, anyway..). Money need to be distributed accordingly..so many things to consider..branded lipstick,Clark shoes, Bally shoes,Christian Dior (seemed quite cheap there)and also Royal Alberts..not that I bought everything..just to share with you what I saw.I know, my friend overthere will also be like me.LADIES ARE LADIES ..anybody wants to go can 'KIRIM'.

Thank you to Nuffnang for accepting me to be in the Glitterati group. At first I thought it was impossible for me to reach such status. I was so happy to see the package specially offered to Glitterati members, it's amazing!..when I heard of Glitterati I always associate the word with something glittering..am I right? So here, I relate it with my humble blog about beads, crystals which are also glittering on ladies'dress or kurung..and often will be praised by others too.

My sister went to Vietnam last year and she bought a few long dress or 'Jubah'. I wonder how they are so advance to know the current taste of Malaysians especially the Muslim ladies. Now,it is popular with beads embroidery on it.bling..bling.it facinates me where the cost is quite cheap.Though the quality of the beads is not satisfactory,the idea and design is just ok..very creative.I think they (Vietnamese) are clever people who always study the fashion trends including the intricate 'Tudung' or the headcover..the embroidery is so fine.We are always the buyers..why can't we make our own? .

It was quite funny as I was blogging at 12 o'clock midnight. When I checked the blog's statistics for the Nuffnang performance and earning, it was stated zero. So, I was blaming my husband for making the mess with my blog that turns zero. I was so frustrated and kept on thinking why? Thanks God for giving me the brain to be able to think rationally. Do you know why? It was stated zero because IT WAS already A NEW DAY!SO NO VISITORS AND EARNING YET. We had a good laugh.And for this year 2013, I would like to increase my income and at least a step better or richer.I want to make further plans in sewing projects,more beads and embroidery or 'jahit sulam',more crochet...I would go to sewing classes like sewing dress and so on.
Yesterday I received an e-mail from somebody offering me to be an Amazon Affiliate. I did read about joining 'Affiliate' to get cash through advertising.In this case , I can advertise Amazon 'business'in my blog. If anybody click or order things from the advertisement,I will be paid by the company.Though, it seems positive, I do not know how to manage it (lack of knowledge again!). If I know how to go about it, I would certainly advertise on selling books especially books on craft, embroidery, quilting, sewing, patchwork,crocheting and so forth.I think many ladies overthere who are intersted to buy those books including me.And I also will get money without working !..anyway..That's only my sweet dream eh?

When I started blogging last year, I always came across the word 'nuffnang'.What does it mean?I just asked my friends and google to get more info.So I got the general idea.I started to follow step by step on how to register as a member.Tarra!! I got it. From that point, I did not know how to proceed..so I just left and ignored it for almost a year. From reading, I got some info to put an advertisement..Oh Goshh! The HTML!I just know nothing..I kept on trying..and lastly I was stuck on how to copy and paste in between contents..I tried to post 'tickets'to Nuffnang telling 'there is no ads on my blog'.I know this must be due to technical error ( I think so..wink).Then I SOS my daughter..help Mama to continue..lastly I got it!..I am so happy.Hopefully, I will get the benefit of CPC, BE etc as well as to share my blog 'beautiful beads and handmade embroidery'with the Nuffnangers.Ladies, welcome to view my blog too.

Last few days I went to Popular Bookstore,and I went to my favourite corner..Chinese books! Sometimes the Chinese in the shop would look at me when I browsed through the Hand Made magazine(the title of the magazine is 'Hand Made). maybe they wonder whether I can read (as I am Malay). The price offered is reasonable, just RM15 for the old outdated magazine..it is ok because the content is never out of date. My dear friends,it is really interesting though you do not know how to read Mandarin! It provides many patterns such as bags etc.We can follow the steps to sew the bags..I am sure you can do it easily..happy sewing
