My Happiest Moment

My happiest moment when I'm able to sit down and reminisce about all my happy moments! :) I don't have a single "happiest moment" because there are many moments in my life that makes me really, really happy and it's impossible for me to single just one out! 

taken in St Kilda, Melbourne

Like when my hubby proposed to me, when we got married, when I had my first article published about my handmade journals & crafts (and then a second article & a third....), when we went holidaying in Melbourne (and I fell in love with the beauty of everything there) and most recently when we were in China and I was mesmerized by the natural wonders in Jiu Zhai Gou. There are just too many 'happiest moment' for me and I am grateful for every single happy moment. 

I am learning to be grateful and happy about the little things in life because they all matters :) And what better way to capture all these bits and pieces of happiness than with a camera that has the tagline 'Happy Photography'? :)

I want an Olympus Pen... it's pretty, it's awesome and it's my happy photography camera! :)


Happy Halloween!

Happy Happy Halloween, friends! Hope you all enjoy and have lotsa fun tonight!

Little Girl on the Go

I've started drawing again lately. It's something I have not done for quite a long while. I still remember vividly when I used to draw... that was back when I was in secondary school... When the teacher is teaching, when I'm back home.. practically anytime spare time would be spent drawing, reading or watching tv! :P

I thank my hubby, of course, for his encouragements... always supporting me in my arts and crafting endeavours. I thank Rekha for encouraging me to get my illustrations printed into postcards and notebook covers and sharing new ideas with me :)

My postcards :) 6 of my illustrations... I illustrated the back cover as well....

I only printed 3 of the illustrations as book covers... wanted to see how the response will be like :)

I'm going to run a contest soon... Name the little girl and boy! Though, I think the little girl will make more appearances than the boy :P

Umbrella of Love

You know the song from Mary Poppins which goes something like, "a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, the medicine go down ...."? Mine is "an umbrella of love puts a smile on your face, a smile on your face ..."

Been dabbling in cardmaking again these last few days. Had to restock as my handmade cards are running low on the stock count and I had to restock my consignment in CzipLee, Bangsar too :) 

Going to make more new designs so that you can have more choices in the coming craft markets! :)

Couch day, anyone?

I don't know about you but I *am* definitely needing a couch day! I seem to be bustling around a lot after coming back from our 'holiday' (somehow, it's very tiring to go on holidays... LOL... walked a LOT) and have not really had the time to sit down and just be a couch potato.

And I'm the kind who loves and needs *ME* time. I need time alone to just mind my own business. That's makes me happy and if I have not had the chance to do so, I feel like I have not rested... haha... do you have idiosyncrasies such as mine? Care to share? :)

Coffee Lovers

Painted this little sweetie on the day iPhone 4s was launched, which I found out a day later was also the day Steve Jobs passed away. Am still sad over that piece of news but well, life goes on and I can't stay in this state for whatever reasons. I must live and be happy for that is what life is really about!

This little canvas art is painted with acrylic paint and sealed with Mod Podge. I love that she is hugging a huge mug of coffee! :) See the smile? It's a HUGE one. My normal canvas drawings doesn't have smile this big... you notice, they really don't! Oh, I gave her blush on her cheeks too but it ain't so obvious.. just a dash of colour :)

I'm going to enjoy MY cuppa coffee now :) 

Oh, by the way, you can follow me on Instagram or Twitter too... erm, I think I'm evelintee on Instagram and Angelicquirk on Twitter :P See you! :)

Here's to the crazy ones....

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do." - Steve Jobs

Rest in Peace. You will forever be missed. Your quotes, your jokes, your inventions... Here's to living everyday as if it were my last. Here's to living my own life and not someone else's. Here's to finding my passion and keeping at it. Here's to not settling. Here's to being hungry and being foolish. Thank you for your legacy, Steve :)
