Foreign Creatures


Ideas for a Floral Craft Party

diy, partyJessicaComment

I've been wanting to host a DIY party and I haven't figured out what kind of party until a couple of days ago! Flowers are here and I'm starting to appreciate fresh flowers now! But I think for this party we will be making paper flower headpieces. I'm so excited to start planning and to get creative.

Here are some photos I gathered for inspiration.

WALL-E Party


Saturday was my cousin's kids' 4th year old birthday party and the theme was WALL-E! I helped make the taylor sign, the cups and some other little things and my cousin did the rest!

It was make-your-own-pizza lunch.

The sign was made with foam core and sadly my printer wasn't big enough to print the "4" on one piece of paper.

I have 2 themed parties I want to plan so hopefully I can host one soon and share with you all!

E30 Birthday Conference

I had my first vendoring event on Sunday for Foreign Creatures. I vendored at a couple musical festivals and at UCI a couple years ago for another project I had going on and I loved it. It's fun to just sit in a shop and have people look at your stuff. Maybe someday I'll have my own store. Vending becomes such a joy because you see all your hard work on display and people actually buy your things. Here are some of the things I sold.

And the conference was so much fun. There was a flash mob, speakers who talked about leadership and organizing, dinner from Mama Yu's, photo booth, dancing and networking. It's so crazy to have thought that we were just at a 30 year old birthday conference.

My friend Erwin is having his 30th birthday this Sunday at the Diamond Bar Center and he's making it a conference! I never heard of this idea before and I'm pretty stoked about it. There's going to be a couple of talks, raffles, a dinner, an open bar and a dance floor at the end! I got the opportunity to do the visuals for this conference and he even gave me a booth for the night, which means Foreign Creatures will be debuting in public!


I'll be selling some items and prints and be there for anyone who needs a freelance graphic designer. So this week I have been working hard to gather everything I need. And I think I pinpointed what color I want Foreign Creatures to be...GOLD! That's my new fad right now so I wonder if I'll be over it soon.

White House Party

On Sunday we had a White House Party at our apartment. Get it? WHITE HOUSE...HOUSE PARTY? I love having themed parties and since yesterday was President's Day, we decided to Go USA! I always feel silly having themed parties but when everyone gets dressed up and bring themed dishes, it's always reassuring that they're into these parties.

We also played write-as-many-Presidents-as-you-can-remember and write-as-many-states-as-you-can-remember. And listened to some Presidential music while we partied.

80's Birthday Party

partyJessica1 Comment

Last year I threw an 80's birthday party for one of my bridesmaids at our apartment.

I made a custom pizza station with parchment paper instead of plates so there's less washing of dishes. My fave!

I also made glitter pencils as gifts by spray painting wood balls and hot gluing them to the eraser side of the pencil. I also attempted to bake a layered cake. One of my goals this year is to learn how to decorate a cake. I wish I could decorate many many cakes without having to bake many many cakes. Speaking of cakes, Grace from grace(full)eats celebrated her 1 year of her blog yesterday. Congratulations Grace!
