Best day EVER- The game 3-1 Barcelona won and I got sooo excited!

See the cute little kitten?? Its not mine, but I visit him a lot :) /Lunch: Ajiaco with Manzana Postobon! yeaah Colombian food never fails.. and I tried Sapporo beer- nice!

DIY: Film Bracelet and Earring

Almost 2 weeks ago, I was trying my new Pinhole Camera and I took some photos... too bad, I went to Walgreens to develop it.. the film was blank :( lol!

 I got a huge blank film on my hands and started made earrings and bracelets! I sent them out to my swap buddies Megan and Mary Rebecca, you can see the post HERE

The Film earrings on the left/down side of this pic :D

I decided I wanted to share this little project with my readers!!!

Two Types of Film Earrings and 1 Bracelet

So, you will need:

Blank Film
Tiny Plier (I'm kidding, any size ;))
Split Rings

The Heart Film Bracelet♡

For this bracelet, you cut the size of your wrist and a little more for comfort- and start punching the film with your Heart Puncher - I made one up and one down. 

You can close it with sticky Velcro or 2 cuts of ribbon and just tie it down- its up to you!

Earring #1 ♡

Punch one heart, then cut do the same with the other one..make sure they are the same size.. mine is a little off!! ^^ Open the split rings and put the film and the ear wire all together! 

Earring #2 ♡

Cut the side of the film only- whatever size you want you need both sides. Open Split ring and connect the film piece both up and down and the ear wire!

That's it folks!! Really easy and super fun! ;)  I hope you like it!!

If you do any of these, I would love to see them- send photos at 

lily.juliao (at) gmail (dot) com 

If you have any questions/comments email me too!

Indie Craft Bazaar: Brickell Bazaar

I had high hopes on this but too bad it sucked. I've been to lots of sucky events here in Miami, but this one passed it.. not only did I not sell, but the heat was unbearable, my booth was in front of the stage- literally - The bands SUCKED and the music was too loud to talk to the few people that came by.. :(

You can see how our booth was blocked with people ..

ok enough complaining.. 

Thank god I shared booth with Carolina Benoit (a sweetheart) :) so, I didn't pay full price! yay!!

I sold my first Panda Plushie ever made (the only sale yay) to a sweet girl :) she wrote on my fb page saying that she loved it so much <3 THANK YOU really that was the only positive thing I got from vending there from 1-7:30!!!!! 

I went home and just wanted to sleep. the heat really brings me down.

So, after all this being said, I love Amanda's craft shows, Its too bad this one sucked- I wouldn't do this one again.. and I am off the chart for future craft shows until we reach fall.. My last shows have been sooo bad I'm just over them. (Not giving up, I just want the weather to change at least.. :))

 Here are some photos I took from our booth (Carolina Benoit's Stuff!)

I'm loving long hair and braids ♡

My first goal of the year  was to stop biting my nails- I did it! 

So, my next goal is to grow my hair out. It may sound incredibly easy.. but FOR ME its not :( I used to have looong hair in high school - but now every time I get bored of my look I cut it off.. (I have a pair of thinning shears.. so you can imagine- I get all crazy in my room haha)

so anyway, I've been catching up with Gossip Girl.. (Season 3... i'm so behind!!) and I LOVEEEEE Serena's hair ♡ - It's always messy I adore it! 

So, I want to grow my hair out so I can have my cool long braids! yay!

P.S: I have NO idea how to make the braids go from the top of your hair to the bottom like this one here (tighter tho').. anyone knows??
