I have such a small collection of matroyshka doll. As you can see
here there are only six of them. Five of them I bought here in
Jakarta from my regular craft supply shop upto an annual craft
fair. But that one on the right is my favorite. It came all the way
from Moscow and there is a little bell inside her that will tingle
when she's being move around like dancing!

I went there to accompany my good friend that has
never been there. I haven't been there for months and
it's interesting to see that what attracts my eyes are
not those clothes being sold there but instead those

These camels are mostly hang around at the mountain
areas where mostly visited by people about to pay
respect to a cave, cemetery or statue around it.
I feel sad actually seeing how heavy these camels
being accessorized(?) by their owners just to look
fun and pretty to attract those people to ride them.
I mean look at all those carpets and other dangling
things they put on them! Imagined walking up and
down the mountain with those things PLUS someone
riding on your back? There.
I met Loudmouse (www.loudmouse.etsy.com) in an etsy chat
and we agreed on doing a swap. I really like her shop, she has
so many fun and creative stuff PLUS I think her banner is so cute!
I got myself a custom tea towel with my name on it and
she choose my Faraway Heart art print.
And yesterday she sent me a link to her blog with pictures of
her etsy art wall.Can you see my framed print on the first row?
Oh thank you, Rachael! So glad we do this swap! Yay!

Oh the beach! It called White Sand Beach and how it
perfectly describe it. I haven't been to a beach for
swimming and all for years and this is what I got? Woot!
We went there on my first week in Ubud and spent
the whole Sunday swimming, reading, sun bathing and
snorkling for the first time!
It was 1,5 hour drive from Ubud and its worth every
second of the trip I tell you. The place is pretty secluded
by this small village and a wood to reach it but once you
were there, you will never want to leave. Trust me.
Love to get back there when I'm in Ubud next time.

These are just some fabric plushies made of scraps
that I often see at my regular seamstress or at the
market. There is one more creature that I forgot
to take picture of it but these four I hope it's pretty
clear to show creative and fun those local Ubud
Oh the third picture is actually a sling bag too!
And my favorite is the second picture while I
bought one of those clowns a long time ago
and just loving it!

I will leave Ubud on Wednesday, back to Jakarta.
I've been having such a tremendous wonderful time
thanks to my succulent sister, her friends and of course
her shiny little forest that I walk by every morning
before having a breakfast with her.
Oh, do you notice how often I post nature's pictures
on this space since I'm in Ubud? And for all these,
I should be back soon;)

That's the gorgeous tutorial that I learned in making them.
Apart from having an order from another etsian for a bouquet
for her room, I was so so happy with the way turned out!
So yesterday, in a rainy afternoon I just finished a bouquet of
ten of them when suddenly a friend text me and asked me out.
But when we met I brought along the bouquet because I need
to buy a vase for them...what happened then, she bought them!
Yay! And today I will definitely make more!
