It has so many inspiring designs and patterns, their just beautiful~!!!
Pattern Design shows flat image of the pattern and shows examples of how it looks applied on products.
Graphic Alive has same idea as the other book but has more other variety of pattern and design used on other things~ I love these books~!

We went into Eaton Center and passed by Godiva chocolate and they had the biggest strawberries with chocolate dip on it!(my favorite!) Charles bought me one of medium size. The large one was HUGE! They were definitly generically engineered. But when it's too big it's harder to eat, it kinda gets messy -_- but yummy~!
We didn't get to walk around the whole mall but at least I checked out Club Monaco~ That's the biggest club monaco store I ever seen~ There was this one cute dress that maybe I'll make on when I have time. Man, I love club monaco's new stuff! So adorable!!
After that we went to Baton Rouge for dinner. I never been to one so we went there. Charles says the ribs their are really good so I ordered the Trio that also comes with chicken, 5 jumbo shrimp and baked potato. Yeah, that was filling~
We also ordered dessert, Charles had chocolate mousse and it was really good. You can't compare with my crappy mousse >_<> On Sunday I was packing LOTS of crap to bring my sewing stuff to my apartment, I managed to bring sewing machine and the lock machine~ So for few weeks I'll be busy working on Celine's dress and hopefully I'll get everything done on time! Now I need a desk for the machine, off to IKEA!!

On Saturday Celine dropped by to plan what to do with her wedding. We discussed what we have to do for the 6 month before the wedding, we're getting the ideas of what to do with the invitation.
After that I went to Chako again for Matt's birthday dinner~ Seems like it still tastes the same ;)
While I was busy eating I noticed Eddie was talking to someone behind him so I wondered who he was talking to. It was Ray and Majid!! I haven't seen those guys since high school! Majid looks so small now~ He was like an elephant and I was a little mouse. I really did grow! ;)
Anyways that was the highlight of that dinner ;) then we went to Matt's place to watch the NBA All-star game of 3pt shooter and dunk compititon~ I think this is my second time watching this show, it was pretty fun to watch. While we were watching Matt's mom served us her apple pie~ It was pretty damn good~ =)
Sunday I actually did nothing. When to Madarins to have their new years special. After that I read Hanayori Dango whole volume in one night. I stayed up to 6~7am in the morning to finish it. That sure was tiring 0_o It was fun to read~ It was good enough to make the complete edition for it.

This is work in progress shot of making mouth for loco roco~ I basically used fabric paint in tube and drew bunch of mouth on parchment paper. Dry for overnight then peel the one that looks good with penknife or anything sharp.
Since I made whole bunch, on my break I was playing around with the mouth on loco roco's face. =) Anyways after playing around with them you put fabric glue on the flat side of the mouth and place it on them.

Here are the tools I used:
-rubber cement glue
It's quite simple, you use the clip and trace out that siloette of the clip on the paper and cut it out.
Use the craft punch to punch out the area you like. Brush on cement glue on the clip and paste the paper on the clip.

1. Almond: Throw ground almond in the soup, puree them together. It becomes nice and thick with rich flavoring. The soup becomes a little heavy though.
2. Potato: puree with soup you're making. It gives a little "starch" texture.
3. Bread: tear the bread into pieces toss them with the soup you're making. Let it soak for 15 min, puree the whole soup.

So anyways we went to dim sum at Metro square, since we went early there weren't too many people~ I got to see Allison who I haven't seen her since her birthday on our 1st college/university year~ That was great!
After the dim sum Jen needed to grab a cake from 1st markham place so we went there and went to Jacub outlet. Almost everything was 50% off ticketed price and 3 or more was 60% off. Luckly Jen had 2 items and I had one so we were able to combine them to get 60% off discount~ So I got my Jacub Jr. scarf for $2, NICE~!! After that Jen took me to Starbucks and had coffe there~ They had cupcakes so I had to get one. I've been craving for cupcakes for the longest time! The cupcake has vanilla icing with glass sprinklers and vanilla beans, it tasted so good!
Next time we go I'm gonna try the chocolate cupcake =) mmmm~
After that we went back home and I pretty much did nothing at home. I wanted to work but I felt so lazy~ So I just sat around and read comic for rest of the night.
While I was making this, I thought I might as well make pattern for this little panda~ So here's the free pattern for people who wants to own one!!
Here are the detailed photos:
Now this is actually my first time making pattern for it so there might be few thing that's misunderstanding. So Please do ask any question! I'm so looking forward to see what you have made =)

I'm almost done with loco roco guys, I just need decide on how to put the mouth on. As you can see the left loco roco has a mouth using felt. It keeps wripping off so I have to figure out another way~ I'm almost there though, few touch up then it's done!
I went to Walmart to buy laundry clips to hang up card and stuff~ It's the simplest, cutest way to decorate the room~ My apartment is dirty right now but hopefully SOON I'll have the photos of my apartment~
