My current obession before I go to bed - $68

Tell me one good reason why I should sell this to you for $55dollars and I'll decide if your comment was legit to get $13 dollars off.

New Creations by me!

Sometimes it's just so hard not to create and keep these items for myself. Nothing gives me a greater sense of accomplishment than to make beautiful jewelry that other people like :)

With my busy schedule, I need to find time to take more creative pictures with my beautiful jewelry because I feel like I am not respecting my work enough :(

Messed up my blog??

I think I messed up my blog. I was trying to clean and create a better work space for my jewelry/photography for my jewelry...and landed my book on my mouse and it clicked like crazy. I thought I had a virus, but then realize it was just my mouse. I have no idea what the changes were, but i just heard Ding ding ding ding ding. LOL, I guess I'll find out soon enough?

Anyway, I told a friend I was going to post up this picture and I was thinking of him when I was making this because he teaches me things like a mentor and we chat like buddies, so here it is!

There are so many things that needs reconstruction in my life.. I am just taking it one step at a time. There's just too little time for too many things. One thing is saying good bye to this bathroom sink and cabinet..... it lasted for a long time and still works good, it's time to retire.. I hope your replacement can last as long as you did.

bye my friend :)

Life. Chances. <3

Life's about taking chances... if there is something you want to do, go for it. Please, just know the risk that is involved with it.

Don't get addicted and know when to stop.

A lot of times we are pressed for time. 24/7 is no longer enough time to work full time and do everything you want. There are many things to explore in this world and so little time to do it...

This is where a fairy with a magical wand should come into play..

Fairy: What's on your mind?
Alli: things...

Fairy: what kind of things....?

Fairy: what is this EVERYTHING?
Alli: nothing..

Fairy: what do you mean by EVERYTHING and then nothing??
Alli: EVERYTHING because there is no limitation...... nothing, because if you don't try anything, you'll have nothing!

Fairy started waving her wand and said..."Look up and there is limit"

Alli looked up...and said where???

Fairy respond.. my child, the sky is your limit. There are endless possibilities...... and with the sky, YOU have no limit. It's just a matter if you want to try or not! :)

SO remember, if you try, you gain a chance, if you do nothing, You won't even have a chance!

Sunday, July 12, 2009

What's up?

SO there are a lot of things that are going on and too little time to do things. I'll update blog later :)

<3 - Happy belated Mother's day!

Today, I went shopping with my mother. We had a BLAST! We spent around 200 bucks but we got a pretty good bargain. I got some working clothes and some night cream for my face. MY skin is real sensitiveee so .. hopefully this cream we got works. Oh, also, my mom finally got to meet one of the managers I tell her about. It was real weird! LOL he was so dressed down I didn't know it was him! :), but it was nice to see him :)

Today, saw some jewelry and I just love how they look. Gems are just beautiful! After seeing some that I like, I decided to make something myself..... an Anklet. LOL :)

Memories. Good bye seventy-four!

Our family has rented this apt for over 30 years with 3 generations living in this space for at least a day in our life. Usually when I need a vacation, I would come to this place where a warm smile and a breeze of love comes my way. I usually would sleep to all type of noises (besides rats) when I stayed in this it will all be a memory, that shall never be forgotten.

good bye manhattan, 74~

Wednesday, March 25, 2009


OMG my site is almost done!! haha it's still under construction because I didn't have time to focus on it... but I can't wait until I am done!

Time to sleep! GOOD nite!

I've been so busy recently that I didn't have time to blog.
I've been selling Jewelry, working on registering for school and making my own website. I gave up using flash for now. I am trying to bring back memory re-call for dreamweaver so I can get my website up.

After hours of attempt, I am actually recalling certain things back!!
If I can only dedicate more hours to it... (maybe a whole day) I should be able to get it done before april hits :)

I will keep you posted!

Currently, this is what's on sale. :)

Website~ UPDATED

Guys! My website is almost doneeee! After all the hair ripping and shouting... it's almost done ;) I just need to finish it up with m contents... maybe.. this weekend or beginning of next week, it will be done.

Thank you all for all the comments by e-mail and live chat about the teaser jewelry. I hope you guys will enjoy my pieces and be back for more.

I want to thank my supporters and all my clients who have already started purchasing pieces from me~~ :)

check out the teaser!

I want to own a home. My goal at one point in life was to own one, but now it seems like it's becoming almost impossible...

My dream house will have 3 rooms and definitely need parking.

Earrings, Sterling Silver Ear Loop - edited

Here's another teaser... but this pair is not for sale. Still debating if I want to even sell it...

In the background of this earring is Sterling plated, so it's silver and not black. I just need the time to figure out how to make the earring, actually look like itself. :)

Survey, how much would you pay for this earring if you were buying it for urself or other people?

$10, $15, $20?

BTW, these are real crystals and all the other components are Sterling Silver!

I was asked by a few people...the length of the drop is actually a little over an inch and width is a little over 1/2 an inch so it's not really that big.

Now, today she is feel a lot better and can actually stand up on her own, so without further a-do (don't know the correct spelling......) I will update my blog tonight.

Special note to those who make a difference in my life...

Today was a ending to a very special chapter in my life, but also the beginning of a wonderful journey. For the LAST 14 weeks, I was in a room weekly with a great group of people who coached me to find my COURAGE, MoTivaTion, and EnThusi--asm! It was a great experience before we all share great stories and etc with each other that helped each other grow.

One thing I learned a lot from each and everyone was their will power and everyone's eagerness to live an intentional life. I want those who read this post, to leave this blog thinking to yourself about what goals in life and how you can live a more intentional life. I also want you to take that extra step, and tell someone positive so they can start living an more intentional life through the influence of you like others have done for me.

Besides these people who have spent 14 weeks with me. I want to thank my mentor who has been there and already built this foundation of support before I met these new "special group" of friends within the last few months.


Thanks for the visit! K.I.T. and thanks to those who taught me the real meaning of a dollar store. :)

Helen C. Kelleher

I believe it when people say a PICTURE is worth 1,000 WORDS!

I admire and love this photo, taken from a blog I follow....

I often look for guidence, motivation, and inspiration through other's work and in today's post, I can tell you why I am motivated to succeed.

#1 This is a great photo of Grace (referenced in Helen's blog)

#2 I've reviewed a lot of Helen's work and it's wonderful already as a black and white photograph, but

#3, Helen just knows how to capture these lovely images

Now, I know some might say, what the hell, is this girl talking about?
We'll, if you look at this picture, it has texture and color. It might seem like a simple shot, but in reality it's not! Give it a try, and tell me if it works and then email me! :)

In the mean time, go see more of her work. :)

Very Odd instance!

So I've been posting photos for a while. I realize when I am at someone else's place, or someone is looking at it on a different computer, the pictures are extremely dark or darker than what I see on my computer. That's very odd to me and I'm not sure if I should adjust anything =T
