Happy to be Home

Yay ! I'm so happy to be home !!! Traveling sometimes can be very tiring ! I spent 8 hours waiting at the airport...and it was really boring! I woke up at 3 in the morning, and arrived in Indonesia at 10 at night. But love love this trip. I join a mandarin teacher training trip and met soooo many new friends from another part of Indonesia. Learning so many teaching tips and mandarin kids songs from them too! and now i am home. For me there's no place like home! It's the best! Even though i did not spend Christmas with my family, we can spend new year together!

I can't upload anything, can't log into facebook ,and can't open any blog website while i was in China. Everything was BLOCKED ! :-( that's why i had to wait until i come back and upload some of my Christmas projects using my favorite stamps from Penny Black  :-)

Mimi stamps has always been my favorites !! She's the cutest! Mimi Valentine's stamps are so cute too!!!

Wishing you early happy christmas :)

Hi Everyone,
Since i am gonna be away from blogging land for a while, i am gonna write a short blogpost here :)
I'm going to Jakarta, and China for 9 days, and will be back before new year. It's gonna be a long trip because we are gonna have to transit in a couple airports and it also gonna take more than 5 hours to wait. I decided to bring some crafting stuff along with me..

A couple of die cut tags with stamped sentiment and background, and twine 

Color pencils. I love these! I'm gonna use them to colors..............

...... these stamped images by Penny Black. Also bring scissors, scrap papers and foam tape.

I know during this trip i'm gonna meet lots of new friends, and people who's going to guide us :) So i am thinking to give them same thank you tag cards ,which is unfinished yet :) and i'm gonna finish these cards during my trip.
If i finished coloring all the images, i can still draw by myself and color them :D Because i know on the way back to Indonesia, i will be waiting at a transit airport for 8 hours!!! 

I wanna wish you all early Merry ChristmaHave a wonderful time with your family!!

Wee Memories : Anything Goes

Happy saturday! and welcome back to Wee Memories Challenge :D

With the holiday coming very soon, everyone is very busy here and there.I'm gonna pack some warmer clothes this weekend.  I'm going to China for next week, and won't be able to spend my christmas with family for this year. It's a work trip. Hopefully it will be fun. This week challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES  I made a scrapbook layout using some Echo Park Paper Winter Park Collection.

The scrapbook theme is about my first time trying Snowboarding! It was when i was studying in China. Every Indonesian going to China was so excited trying some winter sports because we don't have winter here. I tried Skiing for my first winter week, and tried snowboarding on the second week.My friend who taught me
snowboarding told me that snowboarding is a lot riskier and difficult to learn. I like Skiing but I LOVE SNOWBOARDING!!  Even though i fell many many times, and got ache whole body the following day. But for the rest of winter, i used to go snowboarding every weekend ,and practice really makes perfect! Now i really miss that moment. 



Thank you for visiting my blog,I really love all the entries for previous challenge! I really hope you join us for this week, don't forget to visit Wee Memories blog to see more inspirations from other DT gals and challenge and prize details :)

Ho! Ho! Ho!

When it comes to Christmas , Which character is your favorit ? Santa ? Snowman ? Reindeer ? or elves ?
If i have to pick, i may pick Snowman, because they are round, chubby, fat, white .. just look like my favorite non-pet animal, Polar Bear. But my mom is a big fan of Santa character, she thinks santa is really cute. She keeps asking me to make a Santa card. So i made one, using my favorite technique, distress and background stamping :)

My very talented friend birthday celebration !

My very talented friend Virginia Lu is turning 50 soon, and she's having this fun virtual celebration party on her blog along with her friends. She's a very very sweet friend, i'm so lucky to know her.

My top 3 things i'm amazed about her :

1.She also has been inspiring me with her works and her unlimited creativity. Her blogs always been my favorite place to look for inspirations for my crafting. She has great talent on cardmaking and calendar making , to be honest, most of the times her works makes me want to shop more!! hahaha , some of my craft tools i ordered all comes from her blog ,such as Hero Arts Musical Walk (which is her fav too), Musical background, well.. other's still on my wishlist such as SRM mini calendar, and all Hero Arts stamps she's using on her new calendar HERE ! 

2. She has great sense of humour, love her posting about her family . especially the "did you know" conversations.

3.Her comments and advice always encourages me both in crafting and my long-distance relationship :D

Congratulations Virginia on your card publications, i know more are coming and i can't wait to see your featured cards. and now the rooster on my card is shouting from across the world " Happy happy birthday ,my friend!  Have a nice birthday !! 祝你生日快乐,身体健康,天天开心,心想事成。":)

A Photographer's Story

Hi Friends,

Today i am going to share another card for Moxie Fab Celebrating Hobbies Challenge and i choose another camera stamp i have. And its from Lawn Fawn stamp. Very very cute stamp! love it :) Before i am sharing my card, i want to share a lil bit of my life.

I was born in photographers family , my grand father is a photographer, so is my dad, and now my brother become one too ! Not only that, one of my cousin is a videographer , and another one is a photo frame maker. How fun is that! I always love to listen to my brother's story of his customers afterwork. So many fun stories, especially when he took pictures of babies and kids . One time he told me a story about a baby who's afraid of boys , or a toddler who fell asleep during photo session so he has to wait til he wakes up, or a baby keeps dancing while listening to some underground (house) music. I also once helped him teasing a baby during a photo session, and this baby always laugh when she hears a word "spoon" in our language. :D There's more interesting stories from other photo sessions i can't remember. They always become the fun talk during lunch and dinner :)

Here's my card :

You make me smile

New Things

Hi Friends,
It's already a year i have been in love and doing this wonderful hobby as card maker. I started by buying copics firsts, not stamps, and as they arrives , i immediately gave them a try. Back then i think i only have one or two stamps set, and was ordering more, so i tried to draw and color my own drawing. 

You can see my very first post HERE :) 

And after a year, i have made so many new friends who shares their beautiful works and very inspiring, so there're lots lots of new things to learn. Most of my cards was focusing on coloring. and Lately i have been playing with many new craft tools, and technique, i tried embossing, distressing, making handmade gifts,making scrapbook LO, background stamping, which i did  not do much before. It's definitely SO MUCH FUN!!!

Today i'm gonna share a card i made using my glimmer mist with masking technique. It's a very simple card i am going to enter to Moxie Fab celebrating hobbies challenge . You all really should check Moxie Fab blog for their latests challenges. SO MANY FUN challenges! i hope i can have time to create more to join them :)

I'm going to tell you a story behind this card. This card is inspired by my brother's love story. He's already married. He's a photographer, and he fell in love with his wife because he took pictures of her dancing on someone's wedding celebration. Among all people he took pictures of, She's the special one :) 

That's all for today
