My Very Own Nook

I may have mentioned this before: I share a bedroom with my sister.
Our room is really tiny for both of us. We live with two big study tables, a bunk bed and a small shelf, where most of my craft supplies and books are placed.
The place is really cramped, but we do get by :).
I've always wished however, that I have my very own special nook :).

One can dream, surely? ;)

I made some mushroom brooches a couple of weeks before I left for Kuala Lumpur last year. I cannot remember if I had posted photos of them before. If I haven't, here they are! If I have, I'm sorry for boring you with the same old thing :(.

What I like about these brooches is that they can be pinned anywhere :). Bags, caps, shirts etc - you get my drift! :P.

They are smiling mushroom brooches :).
For those living in New Zealand whom are interested in these brooches, I have two listed on Trade Me here. Or just leave a comment :).

I Love Stationery :)

One of the things I enjoyed doing at KL was shopping around for stationery. I bought lots of essentials, such as highlighters and rulers, but I was trying desperately not to go overboard on the notebooks and memopads. I simply have too much of these in my stash!
I caved in for the following purchases:

Apple memopads.
Too cute to resist!

One will go as part of a birthday gift for a friend who loves stationery as much as I do!

A memopad...

Of which I thought the illustration was Japanese-like!

And a cute stick-it/post-it set.

I really do try to minimise my stationery stash, especially since I have little storage space.
Are you a stationery stasher? ;)

Tiramisu and Busby

I mentioned that I bought lots of things from KL in one of the past posts. And I think I went a little overboard with the soft toy buying. Here are just two of them, although I bought more than just these ^.^. I will find some time to take photos of the other two before the month ends ^.^.

This is Tiramisu :)

These are 'Russ' bumble bees.
One is for my friend's upcoming birthday, and the other is mine :).
Mine is named Busby (aka Buzz-bee).

See how chubby it is? ^.^

There is an awesome crafter I want to introduce to you today. Her name is Sherry and she is the person behind y0omii :).
Her characters are unbelievably cute. Honestly, unbelievably: keee-yootttt.
Allow me to let her toys do the talking:

Who is my favouriteeeeee.
I love Rocco too!


They are heart-breakingly adorable.
(I need one!)

My favourite owl :)


Mushroom bears

And y0omii is stocked with a cute selection of stationery too!

They are soooo cute, right?
Do you want one? ;)
These links are what you need:
That's all for now.
I need to get back to staring at y0omii's toys! ;)
All photo credits belong to y0omii.

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

which is Happy Chinese New Year in Mandarin! :)

As promised, here are more photos I've taken at my grandparent's home. In this post, I've included the structures/interior of the house. This is actually the first time I've taken so many pictures of the house, despite the fact I visit my grandparents every single year.

I really hope you like the photos!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year to those whom celebrate this day! :)
It's the bunny year, and may this year be hoppingly wonderful for all of you :).
As always, my family and I visited my grandparent's home located in a tiny village to celebrate the occasion. There was lots of food, and on my part, lots of picture taking. I thought of sharing some of the photos I took at the house. Today, will be the food, and tomorrow, I will put up the photos of everything else I've taken :).
I hope you like them! :)
