Our Story


the busy weeks OVER!!

I have been away from my computer, my stamping desk for quite a long time. I miss crafting,stamping,drawing so much!And i miss my blogwalking time to all my blogging friends! But psstt... during my rest/break time i sometimes take a peek at my friend's card through my blackberry browser :)

Thanks for those who sent me email and concern about me. I was super busy with my bro's wedding and preparation that i can't really come online. The wedding WENT GREAT!! around 900 guests (family and friends) came to the wedding celebration and the church was full as well during the holy matrimony.

What else ? My boyfriend came all the way from Thailand for 3 days to come to my bro's wedding. I was super happy to meet him after 3 months >< miss miss him! Just a day before the wedding day i had to go to Balikpapan airport (2hours driving from my hometown) to pick up so many guests, they should be around 30 guests in one day, from all places around Indonesia and even other countries. I also got to meet so many of my bro's friend i met a long time ago in Melbourne. They always create unforgetable memories :)

Here's some of my fav photos taken on my bro's wedding day

and another one is my fav picture with my boyfriend taken on the wedding celebration *^^* tee hee...

as a wedding gift to my brother, i gave him a scrap layout with his prewedding photos.

This is also my very first scrap layout in vintage style.

How do you feel about monday ?

When i was a lil kid, i never like monday, because i felt like i had to wake up early for school after wonderful refreshing weekend. and it was torturing.and at school we have this ceremony every monday when we had to stand up for 1.5 hours. Tiring... see.. nothing's good about monday.

But after going to high school, i still do remember most of my fav subjects are on monday, and that's the day we can go to movie theatre and buy tickets for cheaper price . So i start to enjoy the day :)

How do you feel about monday ?
I got 2 good news to share today!
First , It's the new week of Penny black challenge!! This week is colour scheme challenge. You can find the detail HERE. Go participate and submit your card for a chance to win 3 stamps from Penny black collection. SO GENEROUS!
I also want to mention that the new spring catalog is great! love all the new stamps. You should also go to my friend's blog for more inspiration , Kathy and Elizabeth.

Second,thanks a lot for sending me emails for my second digistamp.Now I have a new character freebie to introduce! My friend, Jenny guessed it right! I drew a bear! His name is Mi (pronounced like : Me - in thai language, that means Bear)
If you wonder why i choose thai language, that's because i think the name is cute, and my bf is Thai

Make a Wish

This week is week of writing and sending all the invitation for all relatives and friends for my bro's wedding. And just want to share here that it's super NOT-EASY! In a chinese family, the way you call your uncle, aunt, cousins, grandparents, or relatives from your mom side or ur dad's totally diferent.. and even more complicated, it also depends on whether they're younger or older. i was having bad headache while sorting out these. I was given this task because i can type in chinese characters and i understand the language. what a big responsibility ! Hopefully it can be done within this weekend ^^

Talking about weekend, soon i will be sharing another freebie this weekend. and if you're interested just drop by to see if you like it ^^. Meanwhile, I'm still sharing my first freebie HERE until the new freebie is posted.

Today i made another Penny black card for penny black this week challenge. the theme is about paperpiecing technique ,details HERE. I've been wanting to try this technique since the first time seeing Peet Roeven's work for the first time. She's the DT of Penny black stamps with beautiful cards with details ^^ I paperpieced mostly everything in the image.Mimi's clothes and the wrapping paper for each gift box.

Make a Wish

Stamps : Penny black mimi and miles set, critter party set
Paper : pink, brown, darkbrown cardstock, and october afternoon collection
Colouring : Copics

I still don't know how to post a download link so i can only share this stamp this way. I only share this digi for 5 days .
