Valentines Weekend!

Hope you all had a lovely Valentineā€™s weekend!^0^
Some of you might have known that it was also Chinese New Year!

Rather then doubling the fun, it was actually quite disastrous for me>< Especially because I got a mysterious rash on my face over the weekend, hopefully it will go away soon!! Trying to stay positive!! Valentines message - Envelope Front

Did any of you enter Sew, Mama, Sew!‘s True Love Contest?! I missed the deadline by like half a day>< But the important part is that Ken really liked the "Something Special Card + Envelope" I made for him (Tutorial by Jennifer Casa.) Made me happy!^3^

Valentines message - Envelope Back

I got to use my new Antique Alphabet Stamp Set that I recently got from Etsy!
Let’s face it, it’s just too hard for me to carve a set of alphabets this size! :p

Valentines message for Ken

Valentines message from Jo

I also stamped my initial on the back of each patch.

Another pair of Origami Heart Earrings!

Just before I go, does everyone know that February is Crafty Month over at Kinokuniya (Sydney)?? All craft books are 20% off (Including Japanese titles – Hurray!), and Craft Fair will be held on the 27th Feb. Apparently Aranzi Aronzo will be having a special exhibition there too!! I’m a big fan!

I wish everyone the best of luck & health in the Year of Tiger!! xx
(My mum is a tiger baby hehe..)

  • Alex:

    Aaah…I want those stamps, too! Which Etsy did you get it from?

    Valentine/Chinese NY was horrible for me, too, because I had to help my boyfriend pack his stuff, since he’s moving to Munich – great day for saying goodbye, huh? :/
    But! We had a “Valenxia” celebration at the Indonesian student organization here (though I’m no longer a student, hahah!) – yummy food, love themed games and live music made me feel better šŸ™‚

    What animal baby are you? I’m a sarubobo (^0^)

    • Jo:

      I am not sure if she still has the one I got, but she has some other alphabet stamps!

      Oh no… so your bf left you on Valentines..>< That's no good.. Well, i didn't have a good time, cos i was too concern about my rash!!! But I had a nice sushi dinner, so that made me feel better - food always cheer me up! I'm a "buta" baby hehehee... so is my grandma^0^
