weekend loot: birthday edition

My birthday's not until the 29th but I got a really awesome pre-birthday weekend! The boyfriend surprised me with FOUR NEW RECORDS!! And the Orla Kiely book that I've been... ehem... browsing since forever in Powerbooks. I got a 15% discount on it too because of some minor damages to the cover and it being the last one on their shelf.

I took photos of the sleeves and tried to edit them using pixlr.com/o-matic. Tell me if I overdid it, ok? :)

 (1) So Tonight That I Might See - Mazzy Star
 (2) Pains of Being Pure at Heart
 (3) Belong - Pains of Being Pure at Heart
 (4) Among My Swan - Mazzy Star
 (5) Pattern by Orla Kiely

My turntable would be pleased!
This is turning to be one of the best birthdays everrrrrrr!!!

lomohome! yaaay!

I have been shooting film for ages but I haven't made a decent lomohome despite owning several lomography cameras. Disgraceful, I know. So a few days ago, I tried setting up my lomohome!

Check out some of my film photographs 
I've yet to unearth my past rolls so I will try to fill up that space slowly but surely... ;)

Hope you're having a great week!

cut, cut, cut and paste

If there's one thing I REEEEEAAALLLY wanted to learn, it's how to make decent collages. I am so envious of Katrina's What I Wish I Had Worn collages. They're eyecandies!

I found a local artist who makes pretty collages as well. I was perusing through their website and picked 5 of my favorite collages:

I should've bought some when I had the chance last year. Tsk. Check out their journals as well! I'm always glad to see handmade crafters making it big in this country. Their products are now in Heima! Good job guys! :)
