Scrabble Tile Pendants + Magnet

As mentioned in my previous post, here are the scrabble tiles which I just learnt to make! :) 

Handmade Scrabble Tiles
Oh just to add, these simple, yet beautiful tiles were made into pendants and/or magnet. 
Here! Have a look :)

Scrabble tile pendants with added words of inspiration - Faith, Joy, Hope :)

With the scrabble tile bail (the hook on it), I tried to attach itt with different chains - necklace chain, phone strap or even keychain for multi-uses. *haha* 
Oh ya, not forgetting the magnet too! :)

The process of making these scrabble tile pendants are rather easy! Just that the time to get all materials is not as easy... It took me quite some time to get all that I need :3. The materials for scrabble tile pendants, thankfully I'm still able to get them  in Singapore :) Whereas, the glass tiles which I'm using to make earrings and pendants too, aren't available (correct me if I'm wrong :). So, alternatively, I got them imported. *phew* :)

Stay tune for the Scrabble Tile Tutorial in my next post....!
Oh, and the earrings and pendants which I made from glass tiles too! :)

God bless,

Buzz...Where's my honey???

Here are the some miniature Honey Bee Cupcakes! Though they were not a whole miniature ''cake'' that I mentioned in my previous post, yet, looking at these cute little buzzing creatures I thought that it could be a good idea to start making them first! :D
Having more spare time now, I tend to drop by the library more frequently and browse books on baking (if I didn't mntion before, I do like to bake! *haha*). Recently I got to learn more about the techniques of using ready-to-roll icing (sugar) to sculpt beautiful flowers and to decorate cakes that makes you 'wow!' at the finished product! 
One of the books that I like is the 'Planet Cake' by Paris Cutler'. This book shows extremely gorgeous cupcakes (edible) mainly from (RTR) icing. :)

I was so fascinated with their cakes- wonderfully designed and made! However since currently I am not able to bake at home (no baking oven :X) , I decided to make a down-scale replica of the cupcakes from air dry clay *hee* :D 

Here are the honey bees, busy buzzing looking for some honey! Do you have any?? :)

However being the first time making miniature bee cupcakes from clay, I was not very satisfied with the final product. I had some difficulty rolling the clay manually with a rolling pin to a standard thickness. Moreover, the eyes were so small than usual that I tend to mix the black and white colour together, which resulted in grey colour pair of eyes. *haha* 
Hence I prepared the second batch to try again til I get them in better colour and 'shape'! :)
Second Batch: 'Bare' Mini Honey Bee Cupcakes
To add on, for the past weeks, I'd made some Heart Macarons rhodium earrings of different colours and sizes - Sunshine Yellow & Zesty Green. They are now available in my online shop! :)
Dessert Earrings: Sunshine Yellow
Dessert Earrings: Zesty Green
Have a great week ahead! :)
