me and art: my wall of wonder

i know it's too dark but i insist to show them off.
because they are my own tiny wall of wonder.

me and flowers: red roses

Being a sucker for flower
patterns, motifs, pictures
but not the real flowers itself.
These are my tiny collection
of old postcards with red roses
in it. How about you?
What kind of flowers that you
like only in pictures?

me and collages: my lover ahmahzing collage piece!

I really really I wish I could explain to you all on how
cool this collage is. Look at the first picture. It's one
sunny day on the street with people and police officer
talk to one of them. Yes, they both have a skull face.

Now the second picture. Apparently there is a small
black box that can be open on the left corner with
the Death title on the cover and pictures of dead
bodies in it. Yes, it's scary but awesome still.

And it's getting better on the third picture as slowly
we can move the whole scene on the police and people
up, to see totally a different view of a war scene in
black and white!

Awesome, right? Oh baby, you rule.

me and collages: being part of a fantastic love treasury

Elisa, thank you so much for making me part of your fantastic
treasury of love with some other inspiring artists that I adore.
I am really flattered. Thank you for making me day.

me and blogging : being a featured blogger for the first time

This morning I open my etsy and find this sweet surprise
email from a fellow etsian named Joyce of
an interestingly pretty jewelry and I really like her blog
with all those white color and chinese writings all over it.

Anyway, she told me in her email that she's done this to me:
and that's the first time I'm being a featured blogger! yay!
So thank you Joyce and I love that question that you
ask me on Hongkong! I certainly wish I can go there someday!

me and collages: what kind of art is that?

art that i can not be apart with
because it is makes me jump out
of the bed with happiness in the
morning and washed
my little sadness away.

yes, that's my kind of art.

Sunny Sunday

his girlfriend. Interestingly, that one sad sunday

So how about your Sunday?

me and crafts: some old stuff

i love tote bags therefore i make several kinds of them.
not that i sew them since i don't do machine sewing,
but i love picking up the fabrics, design them, thinking
of words of pictures that i will embroidered or silk
screen on them and such. 

and i make wristlet clutch once from a vintage fabric
for an office job. it's supposed to be a benefit bag for 
a drugs free NGO in Indonesia. i really am happy with
how it turned out although afterwards i don't know 
when will i ever make such a clutch again.

i love vintage hankies. i made that pillow cushion
with two big hankies and a white pom pom. it
turned out so cute! but at the same time i realize
that to find the right size and motifs of hankies that
perfect to be mix match together is definitely not
easy. therefore i haven't make any until now.
