One thing that scares me in : SEPTEMBER

In the middle of waiting 
for the glossy accents to dry,
and in the middle of preparing
everything for 10/10/10,
I sat down
and suddenly, that thought,
the popular 'what if' thought
came into mind.
Every kind of what if,
you just name it.

And they scare the hell
out of me.

Until about an hour later,
I stumbled upon these.
from my last purchase

And found this line


That's it.
The answer that calm me down.
And I stamped and stamped
those words in joy.
They will be popping out somewhere,
you just see.

Yes, I am scare.
But I did it anyway.
And, boy, I am glad.

And the sephia glossy accents 
finally dried!
Even before I finished this post.
Look at them.

Oh, I forget, 
you must love this too!
I am recycling old comics
and making them into pencil cases.
Lots of them.
Only one of each kind of course.
They will be ready at 10/10/10.

such a good day.
Especially, when you got something
in the mail,
that had been packaged so sweetly
by a dear one.
Thanks, buddy.

Still covering more journal.

Yes, I am.
I am still covering more journals.
And filling the inside pages.
Another 7 gypsies' treasure
that I couldn't resist.
Exhausted hands.
Tired scissors.
But all were made with love
like this..

And in the morning,
when the light is just right,
I took them all out 
for the public photo shoot.
The binding will be next week.

The first type

The second type

And the third.

I loveee them.
Which one do you love most?

The inside pages are also from
7 gypsies line of papers and 
I added more materials
to your delight.

And if you look closely to the 
"made with love" cotton tape...
That one was successfully made
by my team after lots of
searching for the right materials
and technique.
There will be more words, colors,
and type of cotton that will be 
ready to satisfy your scrapping need.
So, look closely and grab them fast
once you see them.

Uh, oh..
I am not stopping on the owl things
-in case you wonder-
Finally finished these owl albums
after lots of sewing and arranging
the inside pages,
thinking about the binding
and the hanging delicacy.
It is about 15x20cm.

Here here,
to the owl mini album!

I left the cover blank enough
for you to create your own title
or adding something else.
Here are the inside pages.

These adorable papers are from 
They are all waiting patiently
for the covers to be finished,
and will be ready
to go home with you,
only if you come to PASAR SENI ITB
to get them.
 15 days left to the event!

Maybe you should judge a book by its cover.

Judging a book by its cover is good.
Well, sometimes.
Especially when the cover 
is handmade with love.
Like this.

These 7 gypsies blank book covers
were making me giddy with excitement
when I found them.
All I have to do was
embellish the cover
and make harmonica's pages
from white Canson acid free papers
for the inside,
where you can journal, doodle,
or stick your pics 
till your heart content.
These are 9x14cm.
I still have some bigger covers,
14x18cm, which I plan to 
embellish this week.
Uh, can't wait...

Last weekend,
I finished these covers too :

You may remember these albums
from this post last week.

 I loveee the texture
that I can feel with my fingers
for the albums.
Limited stocks, dear ones,
so grab it fast at the event
once you see it.
When it's gone, it's gone.

speaking about the book's cover,
I managed to finished 
these 17x23cm journals cover:

after the whole night
playing and covering my hands
with gel medium.

I am thinking to put a metal key 
somewhere on the cover later.
Maybe a quote too.
And of course, 
filling the inside pages with 
more papers and materials
that will delight the soul.

I'll be back soon enough.

3D owls

Everyone seem to catch on the trend
 to watch 3D movie lately,
so I tried to follow the 3D's trend
by making 3D owls....LOL.
There isn't any connection 
Oh, Never mind.

And here they are...

I loveee the polka fabric
(if there are still any chance 
they may be some left
  at my counter at Citos/Senci/IP)
just when I was done with the
fabric cutting, my mom came
to my home and saw them.
"What are you going to do with
it?" and I showed her how 
I planned to sew them, and she
said,"Just give me that. I need
something to work on during this 
long week holiday." 
So that's it.
She grabbed all 30 pc of them
and had sewn them with love.
Oh, mama.
How lucky I am to have you.
Oh, owls, 
how lucky you are to be stitched
by my mama's hand.

And after I had finished making
the wings and the eyes here,
the stuffed owls came,
and ready to be given personalities

Look at them,
they are flirting with each others.

Some can't stand the other.

But in no time, 
they will be smooching and giggling
again and again.

Do you love them 
as much as I do?

Do you want to meet my owls?

say hello my cutie, 
adorable, sassy bunch of owls....
You may remember 
they are looking like these before.
And with hours and days 
of lots of love,
they all now have their own
personalities..(and I am this close
for naming each of them)
Oh, I love them all....
How can I bear to be apart from them
next month?

And also these other series
of bigger owls 
who waiting for you there.

Only if you promise
to give them a good new home,
then I will let them home with you.

Only if you promise.

Open up albums

My next project
for PASAR SENI ITB next month
is these simple open up albums
-at the photo above-
which inspired by 
my kid's story book :

which will be like these 
when it is open :

Interesting, right?

So I made very limited number 
of 6x6 albums from my newest choice
of paper line to die for 
cause I seem to shocked Shirley 
at Laines, when I grabbed 
the whole stock of this 
into my shopping cart.
(Sorry, dear!)

My album will be looking
like these when opened :

And I will finished the cover 
later next week,
with some extra effort 
to make a sample of 
fully finished album
to show it at the event.
(You just have to come 
to see it, dear....)

This kind of open up album
actually was triggered by
Colette's wonderful carousel album
which she kindly taught us
how to do it in one sitting time
few weeks ago.

But of course that carousel album
will be too time consuming to make 
for selling at the event.
So I just made much much simple
version of it.
You can see her album here.

I have to get back to my owls.
 They can't wait to be finished 
and posted here too!
