It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Summer!

Have you seen the weather outside? It’s getting warmer and warmer. But in my case, it’s getting verrrrry humid that it’s so sticky to be out more than 10 minutes.

I have a new card today. Since it’s Summer I think making a bright colored cards would be so fitting. Let me know what you think :)

You’re So Special To Me

Yay! It’s Friday and I am getting ready for my trip. I think it will be Winter when I get there. I hope it’s gonna be a mild Winter. I went to Beijing last year and even though it was also during Winter it’s not as cold as Winter in Europe.

Here’s a card I made with this cutie from The Greeting Farm.

Thinking of You, Girl

It’s Wednesday and tomorrow is a public holiday! Yay! Unfortunately it’s not gonna be a long weekend and I will be in Sydney in a couple days. Ugh, I really rather be home and craft you know, just what I’m gonna do tomorrow hehe.

Best Wishes Card

I have been making cards for so long now, I think almost 10 years now. I don’t sell my cards because in here it’s priced so low. Once I was asked why my cards were priced $3.50 eventhough it was painstakingly handmade and have embellished quite heavily. I was so surprised and discouraged that people would rather buy a mass-produced flat greeting cards at the price of $8 – $10 than my handmade, hand-colored $3.50.

Now I take my cards to my office once or twice a year and let anyone who wants cards to take whichever ones they want, for free. They appreciate my cards more and some even offered to pay me, but I think it’s better to give them away. They save it and send it to their Moms, partners and close ones. That makes me even more happy.

Oh, I have been rambling on too much hehe. Here’s a new card today.

Let’s Celebrate

Hello everyone! How is your weekend? It’s coming to a close for me here and I have spent it lounging around the house as I have it all to myself this weekend. Didn’t do much work as I’ve colored and designed my cards the weekdays before, I just need to assemble it. Unfortunately I wasn’t in the mood since next weekend I will have to go to Sydney (for work) and the come back for a couple of days and then off again to France. Naturally I want to spend my weekend at home before not being able to for the next 1 month hehe.

Anyways, here’s a new card from me. Hope you like it :)
