Next Coming Project Preview - Wooden Bird House

The upcoming altered project that I have intended to do is a wooden bird house. Here is the preview of the supplies that I have prepared for this new project. Most of the supplies for this project, I have gotten from Thailand Bangkok during my January business trip. I have also discovered a new type of art & craft supplies in the Chatuchak market. Really can't wait to start with this interesting project. Do drop by my blog to check it out! Bye.

Retro Family Recipe Book

Good afternoon everyone. How is your Sunday afternoon?

Today, I am here to share with you a retro altered family recipe book that is done recently that I have always wanted to do. Finally, during the Chinese New Year long holiday, I have some personal time to start making this book. I am quite satisfied with the whole design outcome and now I can't wait to input my mum's recipes. Hopefully, I can pass this recipe book down to my own children. =)
