O, Christmas Tree!

Oh yes, I am more and more in Christmas mood! Some of my friends often wonder why I love Christmas so much eventhough I don’t celebrate it. It’s such a special holiday for me because every year we’d gather at my uncle’s place and have a sumptuous meal. The kids would open gifts under the Christmas tree and we would just enjoy the warm family event. I also love all the patterns and colors of Christmas. Just so special!

You Go Girl!

Hello everybody! How are you today? Enjoying the Black Friday sales? Well whatever you do and wherever you are (It’s Saturday morning here), happy weekend!

I am showing you a card that I posted over at The Rubber Buggy last week. I love everything about this card, the patterned papers, the stamps and the star die there! Just perfect!

Merry Christmas

I cannot seem to get enough of this girl!!! Holiday Anya is my most favorite holiday-themed stamp and I’ve been coloring her a lot hehe. So please don’t get bored of her. Love adding that fluffly sparkly glitter to her dress, sooo pretty! Heehee.

Bittersweet

Happy Thursday everybody! It’s been raining a lot in Jakarta lately. And I love it because my room is so cool and cozy, I usually pull up my blanket and read a good book. Speaking of which, I am going to show you a bookmark I made a while back.

This was suppose to be one of my posts over at SOG and I even took it to Australia with me, but I didn’t have the chance because the internet connection where we stayed in wasn’t reliable. I have since stepped down from SOG. Sad, I know. But I think with me missing a little bit the last couple of months would not be fair to SOG. Kristy has been nothing but wonderful to me, so I would like to thank her and the rest of the team. Hope to see you guys around the blogland :)

Peace, Love and Joy

Good morning! It’s Wednesday and I am excited about my new office today. Was asked to join the editorial staff at my radio station and of course I jumped the chance! It’s pretty laid back and I am in charge of writing scripts and articles for women programs so it’s all good :)

Meanwhile it’s a little over a month to Christmas now! So of course, being that Christmas is my fave holiday, I made Christmas cards like mad. First off, I’m going to show you this beauty.

A special thanks to my new and only (!!!) cardmaking buddy, Alyce, who ‘pushed’ me creatively to use up my mounting supplies of embellishment heehee. Baby steps here, but I used one of the charms I’ve had for ages. Thanks for the support, Alyce!

Sweet Baby

Hello hello all! I can finally breathe now hahaha. Loads of things to catch up on. But first, a new card I made for The Rubber Buggy using a sweet Tilda image. I think the colors are unusual for a baby/expecting card, nevertheless it’s still adorable :)

Go Team!

Hello and happy Monday, everyone! It’s been a while since my last post… Well that’s because I just got back from Australia after a much needed getaway. I am so recharged and refreshed. Those who e-mailed or PM-ed me, please bear with me. I will be in touch shortly.

Meanwhile, here’s a card I made for my post over at The Rubber Buggy blog.
