This is a really memorable and meaningful giveaway before the year ends, a 2010 Cabin+Cub Desk Calender. To enter, you have to tell which month you want to be and what costume you will wear to pose in a calender. Hmm...I want to be little red riding hood. Or Alice in Wonderland? Maybe little Tinkerbell.
You can call me Jun and I'm a dreamer. I like to share my thoughts with people and I love to create things that makes me and people happy ^ . ^ I'm very down to earth and love to go hunt for great desserts XD I think of myself as a pandabear - dreamer, peaceful, caring and simple.
2. What is art/craft for you?
hmm... art and craft is life, you, people and love. Food can be art and it can be just food and life. A hairstyle is you and art and just a hairstyle. I think everything that evolves around us is art and craft and life. We just have to slow down to appreciate things. ^ . ^
3. What is your favourite craft?
I've got no favourite. Coz to me everything is art and craft. If I have to choose it'll be my Beanies. Seldom see a pillow that comes with ears, eyes, nose and pocket. ^ . ^
4. Other than crafting, what do you usually like to do for fun/relax?
I like to go dinner with my friends and we usually go restaurent hunting to find great food and great dessert places ^. ^ I too love to go to the movies and I love to go to the bookstore~ to see illustration, cook and sewing books and find reading novels too! Oh yah... I also like to cook when i'm not sewing^ . ^

0800am - Wake up and do my usual morning stuff 0830am - Breakfast, I love to have great breakfast~ sometimes will go out to my garden and take a morning stroll to get some morning vitamin D XD 0900am - On my computer and start answering emails, checking blogs and internet stuff... (have to restrain myself to maximum 2 hours but I'm trying to make it a 1 hour timing) 1030am - start cutting cloth and usually I've already picked my cloth last night when doodling on what I'll sew today. 1100am - sew sew sew Lunch break when I'm hungry and will surf the net awhile and at days I'll get loads of email so I'll answer them too.. 0300pm - continue to sew till evening ^. ^ 0700pm - go out buy dinner home for family and sometimes when i cook I'll stop work at 530pm to work on my dinner cooking. - sewing ends and i'll go do other stuff like movie/tv/books/doodle my next creation and sometimes online to list a Beanie -

A lot... My dad always asking me to deliver quality and work hard and i hold on to his advise in my heart. Loads of artist and author out there who inspires me... gonna pick one of my favourite~ Roald Dahl who believe in dreams and dreamers, chasing their dreams to make it come true yet unbelievably magical.
Kiirey thanks Jun for such inspiring sharings.:) Happy Crafting~~
Of all the many interesting and beautiful things I found over the world wide web, I can't resist but shop online once a while. In fact, I am getting hooked on online shopping. Even though I can't feel, touch, smell and/or flip through them but curiosity really kills me and my imagination runs wild with just looking at the pictures.
So this was what my addiction leads to....
Stolen Sharpie Revolution 2 a DIY Guide to Zines and Zine Culture by brainscan
This zine is so fun and cool, even though it's more like a book with ISBN and published properly like any other book but I still feel like reading a zine. Every page of this books are as if typed, sharpied and xerox-ed. And the most fun part of all, it's a complete guide to start writing a zine, something which I wanted to do for a long time but never had time for it. But whenever I want to start writing a zine, I will have this guide with me!
From now on I am going to share with everyone the great shop/blog giveaways I found, even though more peeps know about it and join the contest means less chance for me to win but it's ok, beautiful things are for all to fight for.
And that's the purpose of this blog anyway, to share all the beautiful things I found on the world wide web. :)
