Chalkboard Design for Lovely Bride in Singapore

Hello, Hello!!!!
Yippie!! I'm still here (if you're wondering where I've been for the past many few months). Just busy with my 9am - 6pm job (super-duper-upper boring with my current job, anyway), my family (this coming Dec will be our 2nd year anniversary, excited!) and my part-time crafter's life.
As most of you already know, I accept wrist corsage customized order from lovely brides in Singapore. Soooo happy that there are quite a few awesome brides who trust me to customize their sister’s wrist corsage. Thank you soooo much, babes =)
For today’s post, I just want to say BIG THANKS, for every bride who appreciate and give me the chance to be part on your most special day.  Love you more.
And now, please let me show off share some of the chalkboard design that I designed (FOC) for every bride who order my DIY stuffs for S$80.00 and above.
Thanks for visiting and hope you all have a great Monday!

Pom-Pom Keychain

Hello LOVE!!
Want to share with you all my creation of Pom-Pom Fluffy Keychain. Made this for my lovely sister-in-law, hope she will love it.

Craspedia Billy Balls, that is. It took me forever to find out the name of these fluffy little flowers. FYI: common Billy balls is in yellow/orange/red/green color. Only for The Shabby Tea Room challenge, I made the baby blue version of Billy balls =P


And at the same time, I am soooo happy and excited with the inspiration photo and challenge at The Shabby Tea Room, to use Baby Blue, Spring Flowers and Birds in your project. OMG!! So-in-love with the challenge's theme "Spring is Near".

My Very First Post in 2014

Good Day to Lovely Ladies!!!!

Just realized that I had been missing for the past 3 months!! Thanks to everyone who wished a speedy recovery for my lovely mother. By now, she is so much better (thank GOD, really) and still recuperating from her broken leg.

Okay, first of all please allow me to wish you all:
A super belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014 (OMG, it's so damn LATE)!! I wish that you all be healthy, happy and prosperous new year.

Anyway, these days I'm quite crazy about Instagram!! Okay, I know that I'm a bit late, but who cares! If you want to know (please say that you do), my Instagram account is TansHobbies. hahahaha. 

And at the same time, I want to share with you some wrist corsages that were ordered by lovely brides in Singapore.

PS: All the following pictures were taken with my IPhone5.

Was married on 30-11-2013, Sarah is such a beautiful and sweet bride. At the beginning, she only ordered for 2 small wrist corsages for her flower girls. But, in the end, she added another 5 ring corsages (WC-RBN-001) for her sisters as well. I am soooo happy that she loves my creation.

Congrats to Jeremy and Sarah for their wedding.



Andy and Carmen were married on the most beautiful date of the year. It was on 08-12-2013 (FYI, it was my 1st year wedding anniversary. Time flies!!) Congrats, Dear!! Carmen ordered 6 blue romantics wrist corsages (WC-RBN-001). Thank you sooo much for choosing me to be part on your most special day.
Aik Chai and Ying Ying were married on 13-12-2013. Ying Ying is such a lovely and thoughtful bride who ordered two types of corsages for her lovely sisters (WC-RBN-001)(WC-RPC-001). Each sister got two types of bracelet. Awww, they are so lucky to have Ying Ying as their friend/sister !!!

I LOVE you so much, my dearest mother!!!

Hello, All….
I have been missing for the past few weeks. For the past three weeks, my mother was hospitalized because of her sepsis (blood infection – caused by the pneumonia). Her diabetic’s background and her broken leg bone made it worse.
I went back to Jakarta to accompany and take care of her. When I saw her for the first time in ICU, I felt so sad and scared. From the person who is really scared to see a doctor, now she could only lie down, couldn't speak properly, couldn't do anything when the nurse injects all medicines and nutrients through her little hand.    
Personally, I’m very close with my mother. I can talk everything and anytime with her. For me, she is a mother, best-friend, awesome adviser, great listener.  My mom is the best mom in the world who has always been there for me, through good and bad times.
By the time I’m writing this post, she is already discharge from the hospital.  But, it will require a few months for her broken leg bone to recover by itself (without any operation done). I truly hope she will recover soon.
For all my lovely customers, I apologize to never reply any inquiry for the past three weeks. Hope you all understand =)

Love you All,
