it was just one of those routine and weary day in the office
when mr. postman suddenly appeared behind my back
and dropped off a package on my desk.

a package for me, received in the office!
puzzled yet a bit excited, i looked at the sender's address....
and i started to have an idea of who is my santa.

i quickly unwrapped the package.
what's inside immediately brightened my day!

there was a homemade beewax lipbalm, a piece of homemade soap
and a typewriter ribbon!!!!!

the soap is so nicely wrapped that i still haven't unwrapped it yet.

i have said i wanted to get one of those vintage typewriter,
before i found myself one, this kind person has gotten me a ribbon!!!

and the best part of the package was a typed, yes TYPED, not written,
little note card........  
how i love the look and feel of a typed note!!!
so vintage and so cute!!!!

i totally love this little *essential survival kit*!
and i will be keeping the little typed note....  i love it.

thank you sooooo much joop!!!!

*story telling*

because of various reasons (and excuses), i have not been getting my hands on making any things in the past few months...

couple weeks ago, i finally gathered myself together, sat down and started making things.
i mentioned that i wanted to give this collection a theme,
and i think i have decided on::  *story telling*

this collection of necklaces comes in the form of a mini-book
made of various fabrics, vintage book pages in foreign languages, tiny tiny pearls, vintage lace monograms, etc
and each page of the mini-book is filled with sparkling sequins, bits and pieces of lace, tiny tiny charms, etc....

each mini-book is meant to let your imagination run wide....
use your imagination to fill up each page and to tell a story

to be honest, i wasn't (and am still not sure) whether this idea is too weird, or if people will find a necklace made of vintage paper, fabrics, etc just too odd....

but i must admit i have a lot of fun during the process of making them.
i think i will keep on making a few more.

thanks billie for taking them in.

bees and the beehive

this toy is meant to be interactive.................
mommy is supposed to stuff the three little bees into the beehive,
and then you are supposed to dig into the holes on the side of the beehive
and pull the little bees out one by one....
mommy is supposed to throw the bees for you to fetch......

no matter how many times mommy tried,
you are still not getting it.

mommy gave up....
mommy is now just throwing the whole beehive with the little bees inside for you to fetch.

poor little bees,
they are feeling very dizzy.

mommy knows.
your mouth is big enough for the whole beehive....

a blank mind
a blank piece of paper
a blank picture frame
a blank face
a blank space

isn't that bad....
it lets imagination run free................
it gives the mind a moment of peace

ruffles & lace

"romantic style"
from this issue

so pretty...................

at work

got myself together yesterday
took out the sewing machine
and worked out the ideas i have been having....
was also my first time to make things in my new room....

things are more organized now
like all the pieces of lace are in the same drawer, stamps are in one place, etc
but at the same time, as i am still not used to the whereabouts of things,
i have to think hard to remember where i had put them....

made two items....
and i have given this collection a theme...
now need to think of a name for it....

nothing is more relaxing and calming than crafting while listening to music....
i think i do like my new space.....

this and that

retail therapy.....
i think it's just an excuse

i used it today

i escaped from hell during lunch time
found myself carrying
their latest
their latest
their latest
her latest
back to hell after lunch

they will all keep me busy for
at least a week or so

hopefully by then
i can see the light at the end of the tunnel


just when i was about to immerge into the sea of rhythm
when i got home,
a blog friend got me sucked into another sea.....


i just got to share my two new favorites here:

thanks blue eyed night owl!!!
