Miu~



I got fixated on Japanese fabrics since a month ago, and I can't seem to resist them. I haven't got a sewing machine (sigh.. no oven, no sewing machine, something in life is just missing). I tend to consider for the longest time when I shop for "equipment" of any sort. I go crazy looking at specifications, learning about functions & features. I dwell on every single detail and consider and reconsider every need and future need. Ha! By the time I finish the research, the model is outdated, and no longer sold. "L" for loserrrrrr. While I am not too quick on buying the BIG things, I jump and almost pounce on all the small little indulgences. Weaving seamlessly between shelves of ribbons, bales of printed cottons & linens, I am quick (and almost too eager) to part with some cash.




Okie, back to Miu~, this card features a contented cat sitting on an armchair. I wanted to find a way to start using all the ribbons, paper and fabric I have. I find it therapeutic to draw wallpaper and furniture. Voila... I showed it to Sha when we met up last week. She said she would open up her bookstore when I make 1000 of these, 20 (or is it 50?) designs. She would sell them in her shop. Well, I don't think I'll reach 100 anytime soon, because it's horribly tedious to ink & cut & paste, but this somewhat informal remark is giving me an awful amount of interest in making them, because I *REALLY* wish for the day Sha has her dream book store! I know she would find so much fulfillment in running it (and reading everything on the shelf!).

1000... okie, 1 at a time.

Well, she didn't say no printing.

Hur Hur Hur...

Dear Karena,
I simply lurve your card. You must set up some shop and sell them. They are sure to be a great hi!! Do you sell them at your online store??

Ok, the verdict's out. I seriously detest you to the core for your talents!!! However, the good ol' magnaminous me is willing to forgive & (perhaps) forget if you do my design assignment for me. kek kek kek...
On a more serious note: if my brother does plan to get married next year, I'm thinking of seeking your service with the corsages & invitation/thank you card templates. Will discuss this with you in detail when I'm back... ;) Aloha~ \lll/ <<< this is the sign language for aloha with the thumb & pinky sticking out while the remaining 3 fingers are bent in. just a piece of trivia...

hey Joo, haha, quit being anonymous and putting your real name! But thanks for coming round to my page to spot grammatic errors, I'm sure I have a lot of them. I don't punctuate correctly too I know. When I have more designs, I'll set up an online store, and get Shareen to sell them in her book shop :)

Kanake: Sure sure, would be happy to be involved in any way for your bro's wedding. Love weddings!!! haha, you still have the Hawaii fever don't you? ^^
