My completely DIY Tim Burton’s “The Mad Hatter” Halloween costume!
Happy Halloween, everyone!

Alice Kingsley: “This is impossible.”

The Mad Hatter: “Only if you believe it is.”

We had a Nightmare Before Christmas themed Halloween night!
And I finally got my fiance to Disneybound! :)
We Disneybound as Nightmare Before Christmas characters, carved Pumpkin King and Oogie Boogie pumpkins, made Jack Skellington cupcakes, and watched the movie on VHS!

My DIY Heart-Shaped Elbow Patches!

So Typhoon Jelawat hit us pretty bad, so bad that we lost power for about 59 hours! After nearly dying of boredom, I thought it might be a good chance to cover up a hole that I had in one of my cardigans. I love elbow patches, which was where the hole was, and thought that heart-shaped ones would be even cuter! :)

Do you sell any of the stuff you make? It's all so cute. :)

Thank you! No, I don’t sell them :( But most of them are easy DIYs and some have tutorials that I followed (just ask me for a specific one). If it’s something I created by myself, I’d be glad to make a tutorial for anyone interested :)

Your blog is amazing! Where did you get those sweaters?

Thank you so much! All of the Disney sweaters are from Forever 21 :)

Ariel Disneybound from when she gets her new legs! Complete with a fork dinglehopper bracelet that I made and real pearl earrings :)

The Xbox pillow that I made for my fiance for his birthday! Good thing my mom is a quilt designer. He absolutely loves it :)

Yesterday was my fiance’s 27th birthday! Here are all of his birthday photos for the 4 years we’ve been together :) (We were only together for 2 weeks on his 23rd birthday, so no photo was taken)

This DIY gift is super easy, affordable, and heartfelt. It can be done last minute and for any occasion!
All you need is a jar, some paper and pens, double-stick tape, and scissors.I got my jar for $6 at my local Base Exchange, though I’ve seen them at the  ¥100 Store (Japanese $1 Store).Just simply write short reasons why you love that person on a piece of paper and cut them out individually. Fold it up and add it to the jar. Keep writing until the jar is full! Then make your label and attach it to the jar with double-stick tape. It’s that simple!
You can also alter the idea for any occasion. Write reasons why they are a great mom, dad, sister, brother, etc. You can write memories or things that remind you of them. Whatever you can think of!And don’t forget to be creative! You can also add pictures, ticket/movie stubs, and other little nick-knacks to personalize it even further. I added cut-out hearts from the same design that I used to make the card (I took them out for the photo).
 I made this for my fiance for our anniversary last year and he said it was the most meaningful gift he had ever received! He enjoyed taking out each little paper and unfolding it to see what I had written. It was also nice for me to write them because it gave me a moment to actually sit down and think about the little things that I love about him.
So I encourage you to put away your wallets and make a gift that truly comes from the heart! And please send me a picture if you do, I would love to see it :)
