    Hello my crafty friends. It has been a while and I missed my blog. 🙂 Today I want to share my COFFEE SACHET that I often make and give as “homemade with love present.” These are easy to make and give. My girls’ school started 50 good deeds campaign this week and kids are busy making things and often steal mama’s craft drawer. “Mommy, can I have one of your card?” “Mommy, can I have this cloth bag?”….like that.  And right before my Caylin went to sleep tonight,  she told me, “Mom, I am so happy that you are my mom.” Well, I thinkRead More →

It took me two whole days to embroider 4 years old Claire’s drawing on linen. I am sitting in the middle of  messy house with back and neck pain now. 😉 But it was worth it and I kind of regret that I didn’t start this work years before. I am sure the picture will be treasured  over the generation.     This is the original sketch Claire drew for me two days ago. Her explain is, mommy takes a picture of her and big sis got mad. And can you see a tiny person in the house? It’s my eldest Caylin doing her computer. Oh,Read More →

                                    Beautiful Sunday here! I finally finished my “CAMERA BAG” last night.  I made only the body long ago when I was so into drawing cameras with my sewing machine. (I still love camera image though)  An unfinished project was neglected and forgotten.  It was used as a handmade card storage. What a waste for the beautiful sewing illustration! 😉 I attached the zipper and shoulder strap. After the very satisfying job done, I slept like a baby. It was hard for me to wait until the morningRead More →
