#50/52: In Between the Wreath and the Tree,
... I made pastel tutup and having fun with the silhouette project! Apa lagi ini sih?! Ya bisa dibilang antara produktif dan cari kerjaan repot sendiri, we decided to go all the way DIY-ing for this year Christmas gifts! Ya itu cape tapi bahagia rasanya!! Satu lagi, lebih hemat! Ho'oh banget!! Penting! HAHAHA ... Anyway, just call it a DIY month! Ahey!!
THE SILHOUETTE PROJECT
Just like the previous years, we personalized our year-end gift to some our dearest friends and this time around I had an idea to make their silhouette like the one I did before with my students while I was still working and I really like how it was done. Seneng aja gitu liatnya! Kayak classic!! Tsah!
I remembered it was the theme of "Myself" in our school and I was browsing and looking for some art and craft ideas and this idea popped up! Aha!! Basically you just need to take picture of someone from the side! Hadap samping gitu! After which, print it in black and white, cut the outline, paint it black, paste it on the paper, and frame it! Yup! That easy and simple .. and personally I always think silhouette is always a good idea :)
We bought the frame during our IKEA trip and I was the one in charge of taking photos while Abang helped to print it out. Cutting out the outline was mommy's duty while Gide and Daddy were team up to paint all those cut outs. So yeah, it was a good team work cum family bonding! Well done, team!!
PASTEL TUTUP ala #MAMAYUKERO
Yup, as you can see from the picture, Pastel Tutup! Pavorit!!! Since baking cake it's not my forte, then pastel tutup it is! It's always be my all time favorite savory dish! Sama kayak cinta, pastel tutup ga pernah salah! HOHOHO ... And it was my mom's recipe! Just like the silhouette project, we gave out some of these babies to our friends and nothing can make us happier knowing that they liked it. Yeah yeah yeah ;)
For a meanwhile, rasanya cukup ngeliat kentang! Tapi kalo disuruh makan tetep mau! Eh?! Kemaren itu pertama kalinya saya bikin mashed potato terbanyak selama hidup saya! HOHOHO ... Yaowoh, ngerebusnya sih ya udah lah ya, bagian ngancurinnya itu loh, langsung berasa bisep-nya jadi nih! Ampir 7 kilo kentang buat bikin 16 loyang pastel tutup dan itu kita bagi jadi tiga batch, kalo ga bisa kesel duluan kayaknya .. Dasar emak - emak labil emosian banget ya, padahal Abang sama Gide juga ikut bantuin juga loh. Ya begitulah! HOHOHO ...
Entah kenapa taon ini koq rasanya niat dan semangat banget ya ngerjain pritilan ini itu! That's the Christmas spirit I guess! HAHAHA .. We'll see how next year! ;) And on top of all those DIYs stuff, we still went for playdates, attending wedding back to back in Bali and Singapore, watching those free shows in the malls featuring Gide's favorite Robocar Poli and Paw Patrol, dan tentunya yang selalu ada dulu, sekarang, dan selamanya .. cucian!!! Ngetiknya saya berasa ngerentek ya badan HAHAHA ...
