Don't Waste the Pretty

Did anyone see the Hello Kitty collection at MAC? Well, more like...did anyone receive the MAC postcard? =) ....I didn't =( But a wonderful friend of mine gave me hers! <3 It was sitting in my room...collecting dust for many days, so I thought maybe I make it more useful. The inside of the envelope gave me an's so cute! So why waste the pretty?

Materials Needed:
  • Double-sided tape/glue
  • Scissors/Craft knife
...that's all!

  1. Not really a step =) Just showing the postcard and envelope.

  2. Open both sides of the envelope. Try to open the sides as neatly as possible. As you can see, I did a messy job. lol

  3. Cut along the middle. No need to use a ruler! Just follow the crease.

  4. Use double-sided tape or glue to stick the Hello Kitty postcard onto the pink side of the envelope. Cut and follow the shape, leaving 0.5cm space between.

  5. Use a black Sharpie to colour in the yucky white corners.

  6. Lastly, stick Hello Kitty onto the black side using double-sided tape or glue.

TA DA! There you have it! You can gave it to a friend, make it into a card, or even frame it. But for me, I'm going to keep it for myself. It's way too cute! =)

Oh! Check out the MAC collection for Hello Kitty!

And the Top Three Goes To...

I started this hobby not too long ago...almost 2 years now. Although my hands are not like Martha Stewart's hands, I think my cards are okay. I'll just have to keep practicing =) And as long as my friends and families enjoy receiving them, I'm happy to make simple cards. Who knows, maybe I can become someone like Martha Stewart...just ignore the stock scandal in 2004...teehee =) I just wish I can spend more time making cards, but school gets in the way most of the time.

Anyways, here are my top three most favourite cards (in no particular order):

Next time I will show how to make them. I'm just too lazy right now =)

Happy Birthday To My Mom!

Happy Birthday, Mom!!! <3

My Mom

Last year, my brothers and I bought my mom a spa package that included a massage, manicure, and a pedicure. We drove around Richmond to find the best and affordable spa for mom. I thought it was best gift for her! Unfortunately, that gift was
epic fail. She said she didn’t like this kind of “stuff” and that we don’t know her at all. I was quite upset and I’m sure she was too =*(

But not to worry! This year we redeemed ourselves! First, we went out to a lovely all you can eat sushi, mom’s favourite! That’s five points for us. Second, my brothers and I got her a leather wallet from Fossil. That’s twenty points, but minus five points for not buying her a cake. Lastly, Dad bought her a really cute Coach purse! That’s like one billion points for my dad!

I heart my mom.

  • She wakes up the same time as me just to make me breakfast and drive me to the skytrain.
  • She likes to shop and watch dramas, just like me.
  • She knows when not to bother me when I’m not in a good mood.
  • She cooks according to what we like: broccolis for brothers and the only stem for me =)
  • And, she nags here and there...just like all moms =D

I made this card just for her. It doesn't look like it, but it took me about two hours. Measuring took the longest because I want this card to be perfect!

Under Construction...very under construction.

This blank blog is sadly under construction! =( I have an awesome idea of how this blog is going to look, but I have to put it together. It's harder than I thought!

This is not my first time using HTML. I have many years of experience, thanks to AsianAvenue (if anyone still remembers it...) and Xanga! Also, I'm taking a intro course to web design, so hopefully this will come rushing back to me =)
well, that's all for now!

Please come back soon!
