Love You Little, Love You Lots!

Oh, I finally gotten round to posting these. I had these for ages, well, actually since it came out a little while ago but as you know… Personal life took over so here they are. I love these images from Some Odd Girl. It’s Little Loves series and they are truly adorable!

Best Wishes To You!

This is another pocket card, a 6x6 half diagonal one. It’s actually a happy accident. I’ve been wanting to use this image for a while now. That flower arrangement took me an hour! I don’t know why but it didn’t seem right to me until I laid down those beautiful leaves.

XOXO Pocket Card

Hello everybody! Ohhh, I have been busy. I’ve been crafting a lot and also met up with my fellow cardmakers here at my house over the weekend. I love these meet-ups, I’m always on fire afterwards. Sharing ideas and stories are such joy to me as I am sure to my friends too.

Anyway, I’m here to share a pocket card I made with the ever so lovely stamp from Some Odd Girl. You know I’m crazy about them, right? I mean, I know I’m on their design team but I genuinely looooovee them so much. I swear whenever I get a happy mail from Kristy, I take them to bed with me hahaha.

Sunny Mae

It’s mid-week again… And the weather has been nothing but shy of heat. Yes! Summer is certainly around the corner. I can’t wait to have mini pool trips with my nephew and niece this summer. We frequent a sports center near my inlaws’ place where they have two huge kids pools and one regular pool plus a jacuzzi. When school break is here I think we’ll go there often.

Continuing the reveal to Some Odd Girl’s newest clear stamps release, here’s my second card featuring Sunny Mae!

Update and A Card

Hi everyone! In case you’re wondering where I’ve gone to… Well, life has been changing a lot for me lately. I am still crafting madly everyday, but my personal life kinda takes over. I have been putting off blogging for a while, I just don’t know how to start. So after what seems to be my seventieth time opening my blog software, I finally decided to post again.

About two weeks ago, my Father In-Law died after nearly 7 years of stroke and a year of not being able to get out of bed. It was definitely a sad time for me and my husband. A couple of weeks before that my uncle also passed. There has been a lot of deaths in the family and it kinda takes away my mood to go on. I often think about my father, whom I dedicate my weekends for, and how precious family times are. When we grew up, we never allocated any special family day. My parents never endorsed the custom of kissing their hand or even kissing their cheeks when we’re about to go out like most Indonesians do. We rarely ever have dinner together. We’re all very individualistic. My parents are hardworking people who went to work early and came home almost night-time, and by then we’d (kids) be exhausted by all the extracurricular activities we had earlier and didn’t get to spend much time with them. As we grew older, somehow we got closer. My father who never wants to go out to the mall or restaurants with us, now initiated it. Because he saw the point in us begging him to go out when we were little. It bonds us. So now we go out regularly, we have dinner at home together and just sitting there with them. I am not taking them for granted anymore.

Ah, sorry for rambling on… Especially since it wasn’t written in a witty way. Hehe. I am also here to start showcasing my cards again (oh yes, I have more than a dozen projects I tell you!). Starting with this one which I gave to my sister in law. She is expecting a girl :)
