A New Beginning Angbao Box

Recently, I have been doing many wedding DIY projects and honestly I am too tired and have no more ideas left on how to decorate an angbao box. Moreover, the angbao box provided by the hotel looks quite decent.

Anyway, I finally decided to add on some cute little things on the angbao box to give it a warm winter feel. I bought the DIY miniature house online and realised that assembling miniature stuff isn’t that easy after all. Then I made the words using polymer clay and added some lace around the cover. I know there are many imperfections…but at least it’s definitely unique and one of a kind =)

I told hubby that I am going to sell the angbao box on carousell after our wedding as I took so much effort in making it and don’t want to waste it. Drop me a message if you are interested in getting it 😉

Jars of Appreciation

I’m not someone who is good with words so expressing my gratitude and appreciation with notes and cards simply aren’t my forte. Instead, I prefer to make little handmade gifts. Hence, when I saw these two cute quotes online, I decided to use them for a jar label.

Just wanted to say a very BIG Thank You to some special friends…and you will know who you are when you receive it…heehee!

Heartwarming Magnets in Customised Boxes

Recently, I received a text from a friend asking me if the magnets on my blog were for sale and if yes, she would like to order all 3 sets. She also asked if I could customise the magnets for her but I told her that the magnets were already made, so it is not possible to customise them now. Instead, I bought 3 sweet floral boxes and customised her friends’ name on top of each box.

I love the colour combination of the final product, gold & pink name label, bright floral box and warm coloured magnets =)

Layer Yoghurt Birthday Cake in a Jar

I wanted to bake some chocolate cookies for my friend’s birthday. BUT…after watching a documentary on the appalling amount of sugar intake in our daily life, I changed my mind. I decided to make a healthy, frozen yoghurt layer cake instead. I followed this simple recipe (though it is quite time consuming due to the long wait time).

Since I love customisation, of course, I couldn’t resist not adding a short birthday quote and my girly’s name on the glass jar.

Now my Layer Yoghurt Birthday Cake in a Jar looks just perfect!

Things I do when I’m Bored

doodling

I haven’t been doodling much recently as I have so many things that I need to do. Doodling is actually quite therapeutic for me as it helps to take my mind off other things and focus only on my drawing. This is very helpful for me as I have difficulty not thinking about anything (that’s why yoga etc doesn’t suit me) and easier for me to think of only 1 thing which in this case is my drawing =)

 

One of a kind Dangling Earrings

A dear friend’s birthday is just round the corner but as usual, I did not know what to get for her. So I decided to make her this pair of blue floral dangling earrings. My girly’s dressing is very classy and hopefully this pair of earrings will suit her style.

Since I’m in the mood to make earrings, I’ve made a few more pairs and they are up for sale.

I’ve also made two necklaces some time back and my favourite is this School of Fish Necklace.

Check them out here if you are interested in getting a one of a kind earrings or pendant.

Little Bag of Happiness

Food makes me HAPPY!!! And that’s how I came up with this lunch bag design.

I bought this bag from Art Friend…which I think is the most frequent shop that I go to these days. I actually shop for more craft stuff than clothes!!! It’s so unbelievable!

Anyway, I designed this lunch bag as a Children’s Day gift for a little girl who brings snacks to school for recess everyday. I think it will suit her and hopefully she will like it.
