Russian Doll, a DIY tag

Received a facebook tag calling from Ruby, a college alumna, her friend Ah-Yu who is now fighting to a very bad situation of bone cancer.  She needs more courage from blessings for beating the pain from physically reacted in various process of chemotherapy and mentally from the changes from the lost of her beautiful face.  She is a young lady just married not long.

Ruby wishes me to support her thought to make a little thing and send this young lady to make her remaining hope for every another bright day.  If we could invite more DIYers to join this event, we may keep Ah-Yu happier expecting during her days.

Ah-Yu loves Russian dolls, Ruby would like to make this as our campaign subject.

My first time to design something with this topic/theme.  I did some research and thinking to make something easy to carry along and practical for her daily use.

Then, I decided to make a shoe-pouche; for her to keep smiling when seeing this on going in and out clinics.

 

認識的學姐自己才剛經歷一場大病正在處於休養;卻傳來一個愛的召喚——希望召集一些手作人一起為她所認識的一位美女朋友打氣,以一人一心意,為這位名叫阿魚的,正在抗癌的朋友,送上鼓勵,最重要是給予她每天期待驚喜的興奮。她所受的痛苦,以致原本美麗的,剛新婚不久的美顏完全因病而面目全非。最重要的,這病帶給她身體上的痛苦與煎熬,需要無量的勇氣與堅持去捱過;而能令她可稍為在痛苦分心,有源動力抗病,堅強地接受治療;就是接到大家送給她的小驚喜。

我很少以這俄羅斯娃為創作主題,想了很久,終於決定製作一個輕便又實用的,於是想到鞋袋;讓阿魚在這段進出治療診所醫院時能隨身帶,為她勾個微笑。

早前好友的女兒在跟我學 Jewclay 時玩得很高興;我也給她做一個軟糖的手環吧。

Pandora styled charm bracelet for a celebrity singer

Venus Yiu, a celebrity singer, song-writer, anchor of Roadshow and copywriter…. she plays her various roles in entertainment industry and even further to advertisement and medias very well with her fervently heart and super hardworking to possess an immense talent. Sometimes I really can’t believe that she still keeps her English private teaching.

Friends same my age found our conversations in my Facebook and some photos Venus and I met in activities, they asked me who is she and why they never heard about her album.  I told them she may yet to be very popular, she may not sing very well in every show, she may not in a model shaped; but I am unable to find another likes her works in such public-spirited and dream-making-true-spirited.  The road for being a public figure never been an ease; but only the way you may get a chance for success, keep moving forward and self-improving to be best of best.

We chat sometimes, we grab little break time to meet…likes today, I stop-by backstage in her show for a singing performance at a social activity.

I deliver her a little gift; we hug in delightsome, in this happy Sunday.

姚嘉兒,香港創作歌手,演員,Roadshow及活動主持,專欄寫作人……她有時還告訴我她仍有私人教授英文。朋友都說我一日究竟有沒有48小時,為什麼我可以同時做那麼多的事情。但自從認識嘉兒後,我會說,嘉兒這個妹子,比我還厲害,按我的比例估計,她每日最少擁有72小時;而且,她在向著她目標的毅力比我強多了。

有些中年甚至長輩朋友有時見我的照片會問起,這個是歌星嗎?怎麼電視裡沒有見過她。我笑答:「多看幾個頻道呀。其實,年輕一代的創作歌手,你們又認得幾個?反正我也不多看電視,認識她,只覺得她可能是我見的新一代中最勤奮,最有目標的一個;單是為她這份打不死精神,夠我欣賞她的。」

她今日來到我居住的地區為一個社區活動表演,我跟她說:「我今日忙家裡事,看不到妳表演了。不過,我過來給妳小禮物,打打氣。」快閃五分鐘,給她最重要的擁抱。

每次看著這個小妹子,活力熱心無極限的;總是很增動力,很高興。

private class on Apr11

a private tea party, with intimate friends and a cousin joined in with short notice.  Unexpectedly the kid of my friend really enjoyed much with her fingers dancing on Jewclay.  She even broke a new record my class, she completed 4 Jewclay works by herself within 2 hours session.  She helped her mom to complete 2 pairs of cliff links for her dad; what a sweet gifts bring home after a weekend time spend.

原先只不過相約兩位閨蜜茶聚,順便試玩 Jewclay;後來踫巧表弟經過臨時加入。最想不到的是最享受 Jewclay 樂的是閨蜜的女兒。別看她年紀小小,小手指很快已領會那巧妙的窺門和力度,指頭在 Jewclay 上輕跳舞著;還打破了我教學中兩小時體驗課可完成的作品紀錄,她自行完成四件作品,還幫媽媽手為爸爸造了兩對袖口鈕。呵!這位爸爸今個週末可得到最窩心的禮物啊!

Chloe in Tiffany

Follow my steps:

  1. cut out 10mm thickness from JEWCLAY-white A clay from its packed bar.
  2. use JEWCLAY-green A clay, little bit; just like the portion to compare the white A clay in picture.
  3. Mix them into your own green color, keep the mixture in a ball shaped.
  4. Cut out about same size of B clay from packing.
  5. Rub clay A mixture to mix thru with clay B.
  6. You would find the Tiffany color has come out.  Fill the hair band tray with your Tiffany colored clay mixture with soft touch of your finger tipping the edge well.
  7. Put the parts on top of the clay, straightly push a bit into the clay for fixing it well.
  8. Brush on some cosmetic use glittering powder on surface of clay.
  9. Leave the whole thing in safe for room temperature.  It would be perfect and ready your daily use after 8 hours.
