Printable Polka dots Party Hat!

I would like to share how I made a simple printable party hat for Yasmin's 3rd birthday party few months back. I saw lots of printable party hat idea in Etsy which I adore so much that makes me give a try to DIY. Here's the free templates that I use for my polka dots party hat. You may click on the template below to download the jpeg file. You can buy stretchy thread at your craft store and 100g paper work very fine for this project!

Step by step:
  1. Make sure your printer is pre-set to A4 paper size ok!
  2. Simply cut the shape of the party hat!
  3. Make single line cut on the dash line provided.
  4. Fold the it to make a cone shape.
  5. Slip the small extra edge in the single line cut you made earlier and glue it!
  6. Glue the circle birthday tag in front of the hat or other decoration u like!
  7. Attach a stretchy thread so that the party hat will sit properly on kids head!
  8. Happy party!
The A4 size template!

2009 and 2010

It's been a while since I actively updating all my craft stuff here. I recently fin a crocheted hair clip and a felt french clip for one of my customer, El. Hope both looks great on her 3m baby this Christmas. Well, another 8 days to 2010.

I would like to thanks to all customers who had ordered and waiting for their orders to be completed by me this weekend hehehe! 2009 has been a bless for me and 2010 will be more merrier i hope! Lots of things waiting for me next year. Things like leaving my office job, leaving all my beloved friends that I love a lot... leaving the routine that I've been used to for few years back. Owh I hate when my entry sounds melancholy. Ok it's time to be happie! happie! happie! Ok i'll be straight forward here's the good news! Non are bad news ok!
  1. Recently i found myself 6 weeks pregnant - Wohooo!!! Horray to the new little peanut in me!
  2. I'll be moving to Denver next year, it's time to be pregnant as a WAHM and have a long maternity leave hahaha! InsyaAllah I'll be going around April. Why I'm moving? My hubby further his master at Denver University...don't worry it's not that long... just 15 months :D - Weheeeee! Lots of expected and unexpected things waiting there... Semoga Allah permudahkan segalanya...Aminn.
  3. I'll do a clearance sale of all my items in Moleygarden. Lots of other stuff that's not yet uploaded - All things must go ladies! Once start I'll announce here and send email to all my customers.
  4. I'm planning to offer a personal shopper services to anyone who would love to buy things from US! Designer Fabrics? Patterns? Craft stuff? Apparels? Perfume? Bags? Make up? - See how the situation goes once I land my feet there lah kan? Hehehe!

Artist: Natasha Bedingfield
Song: Pocket Full Of Sunshine

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.

Do what you want, but you're never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.

Do what you want, but you're never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it's all mine.

Wish that you could, but you ain't gonna own me.
Do anything you can to control me.
Oh, no.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

There's a place that I go,
But nobody knows.
Where the rivers flow,
And I call it home.

And there's no more lies.
In the darkness, there's light.
And nobody cries.
There's only butterflies.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

Take me away: A secret place.
To better days take me away.

Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

The sun is on my side.
Take me for a ride.
I smile up to the sky.
I know I'll be all right.

The sun is on my side.
Take me for a ride.
I smile up to the sky.
I know I'll be all right.

Strawberry Shortcake Fever

I'm in the midst on planning Yasmin 3rd bithday party. She'll be sharp 3 next 14th Oct. Lately she's so into Strawberry Shortcake. No more Barney...Backyardigans... Little Einstein. Of course her party will be Strawberry Shortcake (SS) theme.

Ideas...ideas..ideas..found these with the assistance of Mr. Google.

She's so crazy about SS because:
  • She made me buy her a set of SS shower gel, shampoo, cologne, hand wash and body lotion that has SS on the bottles.
  • She almost make me buy a cushion pillow that has SS on it but I didn't.
  • She has more than 8 of SS coloring books.
  • She stick more than 10 SS stickers underneath my recliner that I already don't bother to take it off.
  • She has almost SS VCD collection. Even my hubby knew which one we already bought because she made us watched them again and again and again.
  • She remember dialogs in the videos.
  • And yes.... she's Strawberry Shortcake and I always got to be the Orange Blossom or Blueberry Muffin.
  • She has that "parkinson" (that's what my girls during study call when u see something u like and u really want to buy it feeling) reaction when she saw anything with SS or strawberry.
Since I'm the planner, more or less I caught by the fever too. I have SS as my desktop wallpaper right now ahahha!

Selamat hari Raya!

Tepek skit pictures mase raya hal2 yg sewaktu dengannya. Jgn lah tanye kenapa baru nak update. Ingatkan dh terkubur eh blog ni? Hehehe.

Selamat Hari Raya dari kami.

Antara pics mase kawan2 dtg umah mkn² last week. Menu - Nasi Carrot (alhamdulillah menjadik), Acar timun masak (hampeh rupe je lawa..rasa tak bes..tak jd sgt), Qurma ayam (boleh la..1st attempt), Sosej ayam tanpa henti, Gajor, Kek Sponge Cheese, Teh O Panas, Jus Oren dan kuih rayer.

Haaaaa...(faham?) and I join the International Gift Exchange. This is the best part for me ..the person who will be sending me a package is Charlottes, who write her blog in Limburgs languange, from Netherlands i guess? .. and I'll be sending my package to BJ Mama from US.

Here's what we're going to do. Put together a package of whatever you want in it. Make sure that its usable things that you think someone else would enjoy, something YOU would want to get. (Obviously, pertaining to sewing.)
