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.

Here’s a card I made with a really slender image. I’m not used to this kind of image but I love how it turns out :)

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 :)

Shine Bright Like A Diamond

Happy Friday everyone! I am flying to Singapore tomorrow for a little getaway then a series of business meetings on Monday and Tuesday. I love going to Singapore. I think I went there 6 times last year alone, mostly for work. I love the fact that they have good scrapbook stores there and sometimes good deals. So I usually snatch stuff like stamps and cardstock while I’m there. Let’s see what I’ll get this time around.

Anyway, here’s a card that goes straight into my favorites list. Just look at that cutie! She’s so sweet! Also I love the flowers and blings. In real life, that gold card shines really nicely against the soft colors.

Sending You Hugs and Kisses!

Hello everyone! It’s a great day today because in Jakarta it’s election day and everyone gets a day off! I was down all (long) weekend long last week because of my wisdom tooth, so I’m so happy that today I can actually relax and craft a bit today to make up for that day.

Today I am showing you a card that was intended to be a Valentine’s Day card. I didn’t finish it in time but it’s so cute nevertheless. I can’t help but put on a lot of bling here. It looks like a flutter of hearts hehe.

Somebunny Loves You

One more day until I get home. Agh… So full of meetings here in Bali. I can’t wait to go home tonight. I really hope I won’t get stuck in horrible traffic jam later. But never mind that, I’m here to show you another Easter card. I think I only have a couple of Easter stamps and I really want to make use of them this year. I will probably buy more for next year.

You’re So Special

It’s Monday here! Also my traveling day to Bali. Unfortunately it’s for work and I’ll be back home Thursday night. I am very excited for the long weekend though. I want to craft all weekend long. My new craft room is quite spacious (in comparison to my old bedroom, which is where I usually do all my crafting!), so I get to mess around there without messing up my bed hahaa.

Today I want to show you a card that reminds me of Daria cartoon from MTV. She’s got sass! Hehehe.
