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!!

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,

Sweet Pink - Blue - Yellow Wrist Corsage - For Singapore Bride

Hello, All!!!!!!

Share with you one GREAT news!!! On July 2013 I had another order from a lovely bride in Singapore.

For this special order, I have a kind of mixed happy - disappointed feeling.
I'm (of course) so happy for the lovely couple (Alan and Fang Ting)!!!
But at the same time, I also feel so disappointed with the Singpost service. They confirmed that the parcel was missing, but on the next working day (after the wedding was over), they "suddenly" find it!!
Please let me share you the chronology of the "missing" packet:
  • Sunday, 14-07-2013. I got one order from one lovely bride, Fang Ting. Thanks dear, for choosing me =)
  • Tuesday, 16-07-2013. Order Confirmation
  • Monday, 22-07-2013 (During Lunch Time). Since there is time constraint, the bride asked me to send the packet via registered mail. She is willing to add another S$5.00 for the mail fee. Send the Packet (registered mail) @ Singpost Tampines. Double - Triple confirmed with the lady that the packet will reach in 1-2 working days.
  • Thursday, 25-07-2013. The packet hasn't arrived. I called Singpost customer service (1605) for so many times, but they said that the item is "on the way for delivery". Checked from the Singpost Tracking system, the status is "Further Processing in Progress". Called Singpost Customer Service was the most tedious task ever. Every time I called them, I need to keeps repeating the story and then finally (after they left me on hold for like 5 minutes) they say that they will call back in a while. But after a few hours no one was even bother to call back - and so on.   
  • Friday, 26-07-2013. The packet STILL hasn't arrived yet. On this day, I started called them since 08:30 a.m. till 18:00 p.m. NON STOP. After a few attempted, My husband managed to speak with the so-called team leader (Francis) and asked him where the item was. And the best part is, He can't track where the item was (I thought the purpose of registered mail is to keep track our packet delivery status?!?!?!). Give up with their kind of services, we decided to just collect the packet on the next day and send the packet by our self. Haitz, we paid money to Singpost for convenience and to solve our problems, NOT to give us more problem!! At this stage, I really lost my confidence with Singpost. I just want my packet to be delivered by the next day. She needs it by Sunday, for God sake!! Out of good will, I decided to come out another 6 simple corsage for her sisters (FOC). On Friday night, I skipped my beauty sleep (never sleep at all, FYI) to complete some corsages in case the packet is really lost. Thanks GOD I got prepare some heart felt for my upcoming flea market (which is haven't decided when).      
  • Saturday, 27-07-2013. There was one lady (Martha) from Singpost called and tell my husband that the item was officially MISSING!!!! OMG!!! It's like, we were expecting the final situation will like that, but when the Singpost confirmed it, I somehow felt so lost!! She said that we can go down to the nearest Singpost on Monday, 29-07-2013 to make the report. Straight away called the bride and tell about the news.  On the Saturday evening, I meet the Lovely bride to give the corsages.
  • Sunday, 28-07-2013. The Wedding Day. Congrats, Dear!!
