    One day, I bumped into a person I knew at unexpected place. We were exchanging a boring conversations like, how my hubby’s work is, how my kids doing at school and what I do etc. Although I do so many things everyday (including sewing and blogging), my answer was “I am just staying home mother.” That simple answer seemed unfair. But you can’t explain all the details of your everyday life to a person not close. That night I came up with this mini album idea. I wanted to make a scrapbook of me and my life. Often one picture tells better thanRead More →

  Hello! Do you enjoy this beautiful fall? I used to live in “365 same look” near strawberry field and this is my second year in new town where has lots of tall trees(which really changes color!!) and parks.

Are you grateful everyday? I hope you so.     There are many clothespin deco ideas with similar ways. Wash tape, stamping, buttons……I can’tRead More →

            Today I had a parent conference with a teacher in my girl’s classroom. To show my appreciation toward her teacher, I prepared a little gift, Starbucks coffee tumbler. I got a piece of scrapbook paper and teared muffin paper bag from Starbucks. So the person has clue what’s inside. My girl’s teacher told me, ” This is my first time I got a gift at a parents conference!” We both smiled brightly and were very happy.   I hope something wonderful happen to you today.

I am always jealous of people who has beautiful piles of fabrics.  It seems like fabric rules the everything in the sewing world. Don’t you agree with me? When I bump into someone’s sewing work, my first impression is ‘if I had the same fabrics……’. And one day, I told myself let’s not compare what I don’t have instead, I tried to pull all the possibility that I could do with what I have at the moment. I think that was the beginning of my sewing illustration. Today I want to share how to create illustrated fabric with plain white linen. I hope it’s helpful toRead More →

I finally made my version of key case and I want to share with you today.               3.5inch x 4inch . 0.75inch x 4inch, 3.5inch x 4inch  *all seams are 0.25inch                          Read More →
