I loveeee wooden spools.
They are so pretty and so perfect for trims, thread and ribbons.

Shop, shop, shop!

Hi everyone!
Today's post is all about my own kawaii/cute purchases. I hope you like what I'm about to show you :).

First up are kokeshi dolls, which came in a set of three.
I bought them while I was on my Shanghai trip :).

I bought a reusable shopping bag from Daiso.
I simply could not resist the cute apple prints on such a functional bag!

"Love you" in blue pants

Balloon (blue) brooch

"Love you" in blue pants

I know, I know! Another one?
Hehe. I guess I couldn't resist making another one! It is so easy to sew a "Love you", and I think it is cute enough as a little gift to a dear friend.
Now that my sister has seen this blue pants one, she has demanded a blue one for herself too! So it looks like it's back to sewing again for me :P.
Hope your day is filled with love :)!

Of balloon and balloon

With all the madness going on in my house (lots of packing, parents and sisters moving to Auckland, visiting relatives), I've had little time to craft. Or maybe I've lost some of my mojo. Either way, I've finally found some time over the last few days to whip up something really simple.


The following two brooches are really tiny, but my sister seems to like them (the second one is hers)! So, I can declare this a success, I think!

"I love balloon"
Prototype - I love balloon

"Love you" brooch

I hope you like balloons, because I'm crazy over them!

Hope you have a nice, lovely, balloon-filled day :)

Gamza Dori

I was Googling for cute things when I came across Gamza Dori.
I think this cutie originates from Korea, and is a potato!
I may know little of this cute potato (if it is indeed a potato), but this does not stop me from going "awww" when looking at Gamza Doris. :D

All images of Gamza Dori (and more!) can be found here :).
Pssst: They are so perfect as desktop backgrounds!

New Year's Resolution: Being more organised

2009 had been a mish mash of events, tests, assignments - all of which I failed to organise properly. I started off 2009 with an amazing looking diary, only to find it completely empty and unused in the middle of the year.
So this year I aim to be more organised and neat.
Let's bring on some cuteness to this tideous task!

We start off with this super cute diary...

Pony Brown About A Thing Dairy/Notebook

And of course, with the diary comes cute stickers.
This one says, "It will rain tomorrow. Bring an umbrella along!" :D

Very Berry Deco Sticker Set

And there must be cute post-its to decorate my books with :P.

Red Hair Anne's Europe St Marking Label Index

And I need to stick things together with some awesome decotape...

Paper Deco Roll Tape

or maybe some of these masking tape...

And although this does not really fit into the theme, it sure is too cute to be left out!

Sew in Fabric Love Letter Label String

All of the above cuties can be found at nothingelegant on Etsy! (Honestly, the shop is filled with really cute things!)

And this year started off with a fabric shopping spree. Wheee!


Stripes, checks and flowers :)


Alexander Henry's cute children collection


Petit Minicco and Wyndham's Storybook

Needless to say, my 2010 craft shopping has started out very well indeed ;).

Hope you're having a super sweet day!
