Merry-go-Round: If you had the time/money etc etc, what new craft or art would you like to try this new year?

It's time for another ride on the merry-go-round! Jump on and join a group of artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.

This month's question that myself and 8 other women will answer is " If you had the time/money etc etc, what new craft or art would you like to try this new year?"

There are so many things I would like to try such as making other types of laptop skin, try learning making prints such as wood cut or monoprints. Jeweleries are also something I would like to try. I am thinking if I can modify some of my work to be pendants or other form of Jeweleries.

I should think hard on this topic. I don't think it is ok for me to do only things I am doing now or in only the way I am doing. I have to find new way or new things.

Please don't forget to read others:

Our Home Laptop Skins and Article by Pili

I woke up so happy this morning after reading my mails. Of course it always makes me super happy when I sold something. But the another great thing is to read the article written by Pili at her blog In Love with Handmade. She has this pink owl and bird rain bought from me. I really love the new look of her laptop.

If you like, you can Order the Skin for the pretty owl.

I love the Sunshine design and am always thinking about creating another similar type one. Here it is the "Our Home". I love the cute little window.

It would be very warm to send as a gift for someone special who is sharing or will be sharing or hope to share a home with you.

Trying out Twitter

I read something about Twitter long ago and haven't figure out how to use it. Recently, I just used it a bit and find it is quite interesting and want to try out more.

I am very new, I guess the good thing about Twitter is that you will instantly know what other people are doing and their concerns. You may offer help or share your views. You can also share what you are doing right now. If you need help or you have any questions, you can ask. Someone out there may provide some help.

It takes time to build friend circles there. Once you have bunch of people to talk with, you will be busy talking and knowing what they are doing. I think at that time, it will be very addictive. So be careful if you want to use it.

My twitter account is If you like, you can follow me.

Gong Xi New Year

These days are Chinese Spring Festival or Chinese New Year. On the first day of Chinese New Year, my baby daughter wears new year cloth and looking at the goody bag given to her. It contains oranges, hong bao and some sweets. It is fun time for Children because they collect hong baos and mix with some children that they seldom see before.

Singapore is in the festival mood. There are many places filled with new year activities such as flower exhibition and new year specail show. We wen to the River Hong Bao that is near the Singapore opera house Esplanade. The place is decorated with traditional Chinese figures and other decorations. My baby explored here and there and had lots of fun.

Lily Pond Original Acrylic Painting

I am in the mood of using brush and in love with lotus flowers these days. Somehow I have this color combination green and brown in my mind for a very long time. I just want to paint something with it. This is a first painting that I created totally from my mind without any references. Of course, you can see that the lilies are influenced by my previous lotus pond prints.Acrylic on Stretched Canvas
Size: 20 x 20, $150 + $20 (S & H)

Chinese New Year and Peony Laptop Skin

I didn't realize that Chinese New Year is at the corner now. There are so many things I haven't done.

I went out yesterday to get some new year goodies. See what I've got. The Chinese mandarins in boxes, some cookies and the door decorations.
The door decoration reads "Having lots of treasure" in the right and "prosperous in business" in the left. I usually buy some "Happiness" designs before. But I couldn't find a nice one this time and bought this instead. But anyway, I thought I should buy this because I am doing some small business now and I do want to have prosperous new year.

I made a red peony and butterfly version to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Peony in Chinese symbolizes noble and rich. People usually associate the beautiful noble ladies in ancient China with peonies. When you give a gift to a girl decorated with peony, you wish her to be rich and have no worry in her whole life. This is also my new year wish to every one to have no worry, be happy.

Lotus Pond and Laptop Skins

Some days I found that I have streams of ideas that I create few designs within a day. This makes me worry sometime that the paintings may not have good quality as they came too easily. You know, if you look at your own work for too long, it is very hard to judge whether it is good or bad.

But some days, I feel my head is very empty and am wondering how come I could come up with so many things before.

So, I think you should not worry if you have lots of idea and create many things at one go. Ideas don't come easily.

I am in such state that my head is empty recently. The only thing I can come up is to create these two illustrations based on the idea of the Lotus before.

These are for lotus and bird lovers. BTW, Lotus is my favorite flower.

You can order the skins here if you like them as well.

How to Order Laptop Skins From My Store

If you find a bit confused as how to order a laptop skin here, hope this article will help you. It describes:

  1. The sizes of laptop skin
  2. How to order the wrist area skin
  3. Prices and shipping charges
The Sizes of Laptop Skin

To perfectly fit your laptop, you should send me the exact size of your laptop skin. Every skin in our store is made for the order. It is not Pre-made and Mass-made. I'll move around the design to perfectly fit the skin size. It is very different from cropping the skin.
But, what if you don't have the sizes with you because it is a gift or a new laptop hasn't arrived yet. In this case, you can also send me the model of the laptop. I have sizes for many models avaiable.

How to Order the Wrist Area Skin

The wrist area skin not only protects your laptop wrist area against wear and tear from watch, bracelet, dirt or water drops, it is also beautiful to look at it as well.

To order wrist area skin, you need to give the following information so that I can cut the middle hole of the touch pad from the wrist area skin.

1]. The touch pad size

[2]. The wrist area size

[3]. If the touch pad is not in the middle of the wrist area, you need to give me the four distances of the touch pad to the sides as d1, d2, d3, d4. (see the following image)

[4]. If you have an irregular wrist area skin, if you know how to draw a diagram, you can send me a diagram as the follows:

The Prices and Shipping Charge

The shipping cost varies according to your order. The more you order, the less percentage of shipping cost will be. For one laptop skin, the shipping cost is about 25% of the total cost of your order.

For detailed prices, please refer the write up in my store of "Sizes and Prices" and "Shipping Cost" part.

Browse the Laptop Skins to select one that you like.
