The first week of May

Hello friends,

It is the second Monday morning of May. The weather is cool. The sun is so timid to show up. I want to sum up what I made last week. So many things. May is the month when I was born. To remind me that ages are only numbers, I want to show the pictures I did and the creations I made on this first week of May.

The first picture, it was a t-shirt from the online store. My youngest daughter took this picture for me. I remember my friend ever told me: "Doesn't matter who took the picture. What matters most is the person behind the making of the picture, that is the person who directs how to act, who tells which angle the photo should be taken, and who tells how to use the camera/cell phone."  My friend was right. Like it, thou.. 

Next, I made this watercolor painting using Art Impressions stamps. This technique is really relaxing. I can choose any colors I want asn flowers has no color limitation.

The following is the card I made using white embossing powder on the flowers. I colored them with Copic markers. I don't think they are good enough. I need to practice this technique. Perhaps I have to use watercolor paints.

This one is the card where I used my fave colors. Blue and white. The leaves stamp is from Papertrey Ink and the flower is from StampinUp! and the sentiment is from Altenew.

The inspiration for the card below was from Pinterest. I just got the die cut of the stamp. I tried to use them. The blue background doesn't look nice in my eyes. I think I need to practice making the background using watercolor paint or brush pens. All stamps are from Altenew.

The last card of the week, I saw it in the Pinterest, too. So simple and not so crowded. I like the style. The flower stamp is from Altenew. The leaves stamp is from Papertrey Ink. The square frame is from MFT.

Early last week, I found an account in Instagram that uses my hand-lettering as his profile picture. I don't know this guy. One day, he asked me to make something about the song "If you leave me" from MLTR. I made this hand-lettering. It's a nice song, I think. 

Hehehehe, the one below, I just wanted to make this. No special reason on making this one.

Last Saturday, May 6, it was the birthday of Ibu Nany Susanty. The celebration took place in Gratia. I didn't attend the event. I just did the streaming. I heard the sermon from the beginning till the end. And this is the result. It is from 1 Sam. 14:7. In the past, the brand of my products was: With Hands And Heart. And now, after listening to this sermon, I want to add like this: With Hands, Heart And Soul".

Now about the food. Last Tuesday evening, I was asked to come to the restaurant to have dinner together with all musicians who participated in Pesach Celebration. We ordered the big meals. All were big including this beef burger. Wow! So big!! I think this is the tastiest food in the restaurant. 

The students of Grade 12 just passed. So, here we are, celebrating the occasion together. I treated them in the same restaurant. It was last Thursday afternoon. There were 12 students who came  and joined the lunch. We had fun chatting everything including about the universities they want to go to.
You know, last Saturday night, my family also went there. Hahahaha.. so this week, I ate 3 times in the same restaurant. And I always ordered the same menu: Big Burger. :D 

The Grade 12 students want to have a farewell event in Pari Island. They need to do the fund raising. They asked me to help them out. So I made this meals. So far, I have made Baked Noodle and Fried Mac 'n Cheese. Just look at the pictures below. Don't they look yummy? I have made these for several times. I hope they will get the amount of money as they wish to have. And they can go together for the final time as HS students. After that event, they will spread. Some will go to other cities to continue their studies. Some will stay in Cirebon, either to work or to study. All the best for them all.

That's all. It was a wonderful week I have passed. I wish to have more and more wonderful days ahead. God is always with me. HE supports me all the way. I love YOU, Jesus...
