Why do you need to buy different types of embellishment (different shape of buttons, colors, resins etc) for your craft projects if you can get it from one piece of sticker? Why? Why? Why? 왜요?
This question suits me well. I used to buy different type of embellishments (Kalau boleh, setiap satu bentuk nak beli) but now, I would rather praise its prettiness and cuteness in my heart only when I see the cute embellishments than spent money on it. Yeah! I'm so proud of myself now because at last I know how to control my desire to buy cute embellishments (Kadang-kadang terbabas jugak :p). Furthermore, I know I won't use it later because of the 'sayangness' problem.
I loved to collect stickers when I was in third year or to be exact, during my internship period. I think I spend half of my pay on stickers and other types of embellishment. I always put my stickers properly in a box until one day, it can't fit anymore stickers. It is also a signal for me to stop buying more stickers. Therefore, I realized it is better if I use the stickers.
So, if you wanna save more, why don't you start using stickers. It is much much much cheaper and usually, one piece of sticker consists of different pictures, shapes, sizes and colors. Besides, it is more pretty and cute. You don't have to worry about the glue at the flat back area, it won't harm your work. Just apply UHU glue or "gam-pistol-yang-panas-itu" on it. But sometimes, I will soak the stickers with warm water first if I have times.
I've been meaning to share this with you earlier but writing in English is quite hard. I need one fine hour to just sitting and brain storming my oh-sleepy-brain. I know my English is not perfect but at least when the mood is there, I could reduce the "salahness". Hehe...
I do hope this info may help you to save more but in other way, its enhance your creativity. Enjoy!!
Sorry for the bad picture, too lazy to switch on the light -__-"

Last week was the most affective week for me since I had succeeded producing 3 new pouches. I've been wanting to do this for ages and at last, I've got the opportunity. Starting from Monday if I'm not mistaken, I sewed one pouch. Then, on Tuesday I made another pouch and the third pouch was done on Friday.
Actually I could finish three of them in one day but since KBS World change their programme's schedule, my schedule was also affected (Good reason isn't it ^__^)

Lil' Chicky Pouch
This Lil' Chicky pouch is custom made for Maslina. Safely posted last Monday and by now should be at new home. The pouch design is plain actually without any embellishment. But from the eyes of me :p, the bag looks dull. So, I stitched some lace, buttons and add a small love charm at the top corner. Besides, I gave the M's keychain to her as a free gift too.
Once again, thank you Maslina.

Better late than never. Yeah! My OST label in the house. After so long of 'googling' and looking at others, I made one for myself. Simple design actually but it took me a day to finish everything from designing to cutting.
I'm using Art Canvas instead of iron-on. And many thanks to Miss Zubaidah (Rasanya nama dia Zubaidah kut sebab blog dia Namaku Zubaidah) for sharing this on her blog. If not, I don't know about the existance of this Art Canvas.
Note 1: Feel like writing in Malay but I need to force myself to think in English. This is the only way to train my brain to not-to-forget-English.
