    Hello my creative friends! Last December I planned to create an Advent Calender using handmade sewing tags. It was just a couple of weeks before Christmas and I was super busy writing my Korean Craft Book and some of my tags were in the book. So unfourtunately I couldn’t finish my 24 handmade tags project. I finally finished my Advent Calendar at the last day of November! A round of pplause for myself. 🙂 These sewing tags are great as it is or as ornaments on your Christmas tree. I always try to add kids drawing or writing on my sewing project so theRead More →

Welcome to my work table. This is where I create.   This is my inspiration board. 🙂   My next door grandma and grandpa gave me this old camera as a book publishing gift. My craft book was published in Korea a month ago and I hope it will sell in English too.   My daughter Chloe colored this wood houses and I love them so very much.           I collect these sugar container for my craft storage. All of them I found at HomeGoods.   And everyday, I am sitting down here facing a piece of empty paper to squeeze new idea.Read More →

You must familiar with Amy Sinibaldi from Nana Company  She made me this beautiful pocket mail. And lovely tea mat too! I couldn’t help myself making it right away. With her work next me, I tried my best to come up the closest result. Patchwork was not my kind of work before, but I am enjoying now!     And I realized that having a good friend is truly a treasure. I hope you are well there with your good friends. xoxo Minki      Read More →

    I’m so thrilled to be a part of Erin’s blog hop for her charming new book Sweet Tweets. It was hard to choose which project to make, but I finally settled on the Rainy Day Bird Coaster.

Her simple, large motifs really make it easy for anyone to make these projects.       Because you always want two coasters when you are having a friend over for coffee, of course I couldn’t make just one. The first one I made I followed her design almost exactly (except I substituted laceRead More →
