My sister Ashley came to me almost half a year ago, asking if I could design and make a special amigurumi for a silent auction that she was helping to organize. The proceeds of this special evening were going to a local children’s hospital, and the theme was the “Queen of Hearts” of Alice in Wonderland. Of course, I happily obliged and started thinking what crocheted creature I...
Here’s a photo journal of some of the highlights from our trip to Paris, mostly taken by Ryan (some from my point-and-shoot and iPhone too): L’Arc de Triomphe (1) at sunrise, (2) at night [with cars traveling at the speed of light], (3) on an overcast winter day and (4) from underneath. Getting off the Metro on our way to the Eiffel Tower. Eiffel Tower. So...

To tell you the truth, I was hesitant about making a dragon. Life got really busy as soon as we came back from our Christmas holidays, and Chinese New Year was fast approaching. I didn’t think we’d have the time, and it seemed challenging to make a cute dragon since I was so used to making my cute bears and bunnies. Ryan, who is always up for a challenge, strongly encouraged me to...
Paris: Desserts & Macarons
Ryan and I both LOVE desserts, so Paris was the perfect place for us to satiate our sweet tooth. I tried to research exactly where we should go and what we should try in order to maximize our short stay in Paris. Armed with our cameras (our DSLR, point-and-shoot and iPhones), we documented our dessert adventures along the way. Ryan and I are both macaron aficionados as we enjoy trying macarons...
We feasted on so many beautiful and scrumptious desserts while we were in Paris. I hope you enjoyed my tweets as we traveled, and we can’t wait to share more photos with you soon! In the meantime, I thought I’d share a project I worked on before Christmas with you. I have a good friend who is a wonderful baker and cook, so when I saw this adorable crocheted dessert trio in Ana Paula...
