I had lots of fun making them and I hope you’ll like it as much as I do 🙂

I’m looking forward to January’s bazaar organized by handmade movement!
More details and photos up soon!

The birth of my name card

I’m a part-time crafter and full-time procrastinator so I have only decided
to get to carving my name card stamp last few weeks
even though I’ve drafted down my design since two months ago 😛

And tadaa, finally did it!! This time I used olive green rubber block for my special stamp ☺
I love the colour and the quality of the rubber!

Mentally prepared myself for the torture.. ☞ Three lines of words!

I don’t have a logo for DROOL so I decided to cartoonize my lovely carving tools!
Easy to relate to what DROOL does as well!

3 hours later… (Just kidding I have no idea how long I took :P)
AND I’M DONEE!!
ALOT of rooms for improvement! But I had so much fun 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is how it looks like on the plain card!
I realized that printing works better if I put the card over the stamp! (Just for this at least)

Will be printing a few more namecards for 22nd’s Crafty Party!
So if you like it feel free to take one 🙂

Prepping for crafty party but I’m really kinda slow so my strategy is to come up
with my designs and carve them all at once!
I’m done with the Christmas series so there will be a sneak preview  up soon!

Stay tuned! ☼

The Moon Forgets

This boy and ball looking image is taken out from the book 月亮忘記了(The Moon Forgets)
written by my favourite author Jimmy Liao!
The image is taken out from the book’s cover page and it’s a boy leaning on the moon ❤

This stamp is a tribute to Jimmy Liao cos he has been such an inspiration
to me for many years and his works are just amazing!

If you like illustrations and picture books, go read his books!!

This book is given to me by a very dear friend of mine in Taiwan and since then I fell in love with
his illustration and I’ve counted, I have 17 books written by him in my entire books collection :O Sucha fan right!

I love how the lines turned out so nicely and I even wrote a card for him to encourage him to keep writing! 😉

Yay I finally got to see him in person during Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) and I was really really inspired by him!

After his talk I grabbed the opportunity to ask him a question and he could recognize me during the autograph session heh~

A very humble and creative guy, really lucky to meet someone I longed to meet!

Handmade garland stamp set

Presenting to you… the final image of my garland stamp set! 🙂

Images successfully transferred on rubber block! Start carving!

It was tedious to draw the acorn cos I failed many times before I came up with a more realistic one haha!

I decided not to carve the small leaf cos I was too lazy #megafail
But I thought the final image could turn out better with the leaf so I’ll continue experimenting!

I love matching pretty colours together! Not the best colour combination but I’m still trying!

Should think about how I can make them into postcards!
Stay tuned for more stamps that I’ve made this week! 🙂

Gratitude.

Finally done with my last order for June before my school starts a new semester!

Added pink mt tape to the sides of the wooden blocks this time.

And a small card to thank my customer!

I’m sorry to people who ordered from me previously and did not get this card! I just got inspired to do this for my customers in future because since this is a handmade store, I might as well deliver my stamps with a sense of personal touch from myself. And I’m really thankful for every single order and customer because they really mean alot to me! :’) I will also be giving out hand-stamped stickers to my future customers who order personally from me 🙂

Thank you everyone! Off to procrastinate about my school stuff! 😉
