Szmoon.net DIY Kit Giveaway
A week ago I asked you guys what you’d like in a giveaway from me when I reached 5,000 followers: fashion/beauty items or DIY items. The response was overwhelmingly DIY, so here it is!
From the bottom of my heart I want to thank everyone who follows my blog and gives me support. When I posted the Pokébra a few years ago, I pretty much had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Now, after continued involvement with this community of fellow DIYers, fashionistas, and bloggers, I feel like I have a little more direction (don’t get me wrong, I’ve by no means figured my entire life out, haha. ;p )
I’ve realized is that I love being able to share my projects, get inspired by projects that other bloggers post, and once in awhile even get the opportunity to help people with their DIY projects. So this giveaway is for a DIY Sewing Kit of some of my favorite DIY tools. :]


What’s in the Kit:
None of these items are sponsored, and all of them are provided by me. :] If you win, please be sure to exercise caution when using the sharp or pointed objects in this kit, and do not let young children handle them!
Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt: This book is actually from my personal collection. It was my absolute favorite DIY book in highschool, and I want to pass it on to someone who can give it new purpose. ♥
The Sewing Answer Book: Full of super useful tips to solve almost any sewing problem.
Fiskars Easy Action 2-Piece Cutting Set: My absolute personal favorite scissors to use. Very comfortable, not too heavy, and have springs to keep your hand from getting overworked. I hold the belief that a good pair of scissors, designated just for fabric, is the most important tool for DIY fashion. The smaller pair make a nice thread cutter.
Purple 60” (152.cm) Measuring Tape
Dritz Blue Dressmaker’s Marking Pencil: Best tool to use when you want to mark something before cutting, or marking the placement of something on fabric.
Dritz Pink Tomato Pin Cushion: Such a cute color, haha~
Singer Metallic Safety Pins (35 ct, various sizes): I always keep safety pins in my sewing kit since they come in handy for so many things. I even carry around safety pins in my purse when I’m cosplaying, just in case something falls apart. :]
Dritz Pastel Color Ball Pins (80 ct): Super lovely shades, I had to include these. :]
How to Enter:
I decided to host the giveaway with Rafflecopter so that all of my followers have a chance to enter, whether they use Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, etc (in the past I held them only through Tumblr reblogs and not everyone was able to participate).

Project: LED Moon Phase Visualizer

Here’s a project I just finished last night: an LED moon phase visualizer~~

It works by scraping information from a website regarding the current moon phase using Processing, which in turn sends that info to an Arduino that’s hooked up to the LEDs. 

The moon is made up of a total of 62 LEDs in 5 parallel circuits. Design, construction and coding were all done by me. :]

I’m thinking about putting up a tutorial on how to make your own once summertime comes (hopefully a simpler version that doesn’t require an Arduino) . Would anyone be interested if I made one?


wow I used to be a terrible blogger. or at least, I keep finding photos of things I did and never uploaded :p
a t-shirt I altered. :D I’m pretty sure I got that one from salvation army for less than a dollar..
you can tell that this is not a present day photo from my hairstyle (or lack thereof). I got my hair layered for the first time in taiwan. I had straight hair cuts up until then xD

inspired by cirouette to post my own comparison of old and new work :D
the top one is so embarrassing.. :p I made it at the beginning of my freshman year of highschool, while the bottom robes were made at the beginning of my junior year.
I think I made my own pattern/heavily altered patterns both times, but with very different results. ;p makes me wonder if I’ve even improved since then.. :o
ahaha the way I used to dress.. and my long hair!!
