A Handmade Teabox

Hi friends,

Around 12 years ago, when I lived in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, I met a gorgeous lady. Her name is Mbak Ani. She lived in the TOTAL housing complex as I lived in Pertamina housing complex. She loved crafting. The life went on....
One day, she invited me and some friends to have some tea at her house. There, I saw a teabox. I was so inspired to make one.
Now, after 12 years, I had my time to make one to decorate my dining table. I put all the sachets I had.

See that I attached one charm on every corner of the box.

Do you want to have some tea with me, my friends?


Transformation: a lovely photo album

Hi friends,

I managed myself to recycle a wedding invitation into a photo album. The album is about my trip to Mount Bromo some time ago. I went there with my hubby.

The invitation
turned into this:

A photo album
From the scratch of papers (DCWV)

This is when you open the album. Only 2 sides.

You can open each side.

I used some washi tapes.

Washi tape was used on 3 sides of the picture, making it look like a pocket. I put the insider.

The insider has 2 pictures.

For small photos, I made a waterfall.

This is all about it.

The design papers are from a 12x12 stack of DCWV called The Modern Meadow. I love the color combo that this stack has. So lovely.

Hope you enjoy this transformation.


Easter Celebration Invitation

Hello friends,

Again, the Sunday School in my church asked me to make Easter Celebration Invitations for 225 kids. This is my third time making these cards for this school. So glad that they still trust me to contribute this time.

I used Papertreyink Egg die cut for the eggs, Martha Stewart's Grass Punch and 2 Cuttlebug Embossing Folders.
The inside will be the announcement itself and it will be made by other SC teacher.

The white cardstock is a local cardstock. These 225 cards will be distributed this Sunday, March 23.


Knitted Scarf

Hello friends,

I managed myself making a knitted scarf. I bought the Boye Loom Set In Joann, Dallas, TX, USA. The following day, I started using the tool. The instruction inside the box was written in English, but it wasn't clear enough for me. So I decided to go online and checked the Youtube. I found the one that interested me. Whenever I had time during my stay in the USA, I knitted. Even when I was in the waiting room in Dubai, I knitted. Lol... I wished I could have finished it when I arrived in Indonesia. But, I couldn't. It finally took me 3 weeks to finish this scarf.

Look at this yarn. Wow.. So big..

In front of Joann store in Dallas.

In the car, on the road trip, it accompanied me.

In the waiting room, Dubai Airport.

Here it is, the finished knitted scarf. It's 1.5 meter long.

I went to H&M store, and found the knitted scarf sold there. Mine is not bad lah... :D

And here I am wearing this scarf:

Thanks for reading my post about this knitted scarf. This is my first knitted scarf  ever.
