Happy shabby chic pendants

I got to play with my polymer clay over the summer. Oh how I missed my clay!

But the super quick time I spent at my crafting table made me realize I'm never gonna be able to get back to work anytime soon. And I don't think I want to anymore! When I was preggy, I imagined doing little projects whenever Little Moon was asleep. Who was I kidding! Raise your hand if you'd rather conk out beside your little one than get back to work! Diba? Haha! I am super duper thankful to my husband for being such a responsible breadwinner. I am able to stay home and care for our baby and not worry about having to get back to work!

Mini Mood Board Pendants

So anyway, this latest collection is called Inchie Winchies. They are so me. The colors, the details. I wanted them to look like mini collages of ribbon, lace, and strips of paper. But they're all made of clay. I was inspired by the lacy details on my daughter's clothes, my fabric stash, and by the mini mood board notebooks created by Holly Becker of Decor8, my blogging mentor. Thank you teacher Holly, for the inspiration!

These pendants look so happy and cheerful, don't you think? I'm happy with how they turned out - all the details are handmade, no molds were used! The colors were custom-blended by me too. I imagine wearing them on a thin chain, with a simple sunny dress. Or they could brighten up a plain t-shirt.

These inchie winchies are available on Luna Lollipop on Facebook. Luna Lollipop deserves a separate post, and I'll blog about it once the official website is up. For now, I hope you enjoy these photos.  Follow me on Flickr to see more.

I lost my mojo

I haven't written a decent blog post in months. To be honest, my blogging energy got drained out of me by that post about our MMR scare. After that post, I didn't know how to reboot and be chirpy-cheery again.

Little Moon is okay, thank God! No sign of regression so far, and it's been 5 months. I chatted with my Tita one time, and I was convinced that we did a good thing by getting the vaccine. The result of what could happen without the MMR is much scarier. As they say, the benefits outweigh the risks. So we have proceeded with the recommended vaccination schedule.

I want my blogging mojo back. There are tons to write about. I want to start blogging again.
