Magnets and Spring Glass Pendant

Size: 5cm in diameter, $6 + $2 (S & H) for the set of 2.

Today my baby took a bit longer nap and I could finish making the two pieces of work. One is the cherry blossom and bird flower magnet set. The other one is the spring glass pendant.

The spring glass pendant is made with a very lovely Annie Howes rectangle glass. I bought quite some glass tiles from her. They are all hand made by Annie and are crystal clear glasses. I love the shapes that are round and smooth. Although hers a big expensive, I just cannot resist buying them because they are so gorgeous. I think customers will not mind paying one or two dollars more for the high quality material.

The glass pendant measures 1" x 0.5" /2.5 x 1.3cm. It is petite and very lovely. Put some spring on you by wearing the Spring Glass Pendant.

Merry-go-Round: What is your favorite (easy) recipe?

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 10 other women will answer is " What is your favorite (easy) recipe?"

After reading the posts from us, you probably can have a banquet with the dishes that are easy and with flavors from all around the world!

My very fast and easy recipe is Pepper Crab. It is also one of the famous dishes in Singapore together with the chilly crab. It is very easy and the only difficult part of it is to cut the crabs. Because you need to buy live crabs, thus it is very scary to cut them alive without bitten by them.


1. 3 crabs
2. 3 table spoon of black pepper
3. 4 garlic
4. 4 slice of ginger
5. Some light soy source
6. Some green onion

Preparing steps:

1. Cut garlic and ginger into small pieces
2. Cut each crab into 4 pieces and clean it thoroughly. Throw the intestinal and the belly shell of the crab
4. Fry the galic and ginger in a pan till they turn brown
5. Put the crab in and stir it. Add pepper and soy source and stir well. Cover the pan to cook it for about 2 minutes.
6. Put the crab in a plate and add some chopped green onion. It is best to serve it when it is hot.

Please read others to find out what are the easy recipe they have from around world.

Girl and Spring and Laptop Skin

These days my productivity will be very low. My maid has left for home to spend about 4 weeks of holiday. I found myself spending most of the time playing with my baby and cleaning here and there. The only time that I can sit down and work is after my baby goes to sleep at night. But she sleeps very late at about 10:30pm.

I am in love with Spring. This is another spring theme and girls.
Order the Skin
Although there is no Spring in Singapore, I always remember the time I spent with Spring somewhere else. The Spring in my home town, located in the middle east coast part of China., is always raining. It is wet and fresh and the air is filled with soft and dreamy green. Spring is a lazy time and I always found myself hard to concentrate on doing things.

The best part of it was the time of year to visit the gardens and mountains with school mates. My birthday is in Spring. I always got a nice treat from my friends while going out.

Yes, this is me and my friend in Spring.

Girl and Peonies Laptop Skin

Yesterday was a bit busy and I didn't have time to put up the laptop skin in my shop. I managed to do it today.

I made several pedants for sending out today. It was very satisfying when you see them laying pretty in boxes.

Girl and Peonies

When you look at your kid everyday, you wonder if you can paint her. This is inspired by my baby. She has such a chubby face, I am very scared that others always like to touch it.
The little mouth, the chubby face and bright eyes. That's what I would like to catch from my baby's face. Maybe she will be like this image when she grows up.

The above images shows the examples of the prints mounted on wood blocks. You can also frame the prints as normal paper prints if you leave the sticky side paper one.

The large laminated prints are affordable way to purchase a print as it is not framed and easy to ship.

The print is a professional Giclee prints. You can hang indoor or outdoor. The prints are laminated and with a protection layer that prevents against dust, water and sunlight.

How to Order

Customer Testimonials

Lissa from Germany said: "Dear lilypang,
finally the prints have arrived at my house: the German postal service made some fuss and we had problems to get the package. But now it's here and your prints are gorgeous!
Thank you very much!

Large Laminated Prints

I was sick for a few days and also stressed from working on these large laminated prints. The difference of small and large prints is that if there is something not nice, the big one tends to magnifies it and makes the whole painting ugly.

To avoid anything ugly, I tried very hard to enlarge it in my computer and looked for something wrong. The screen is small and the prints are 60 x 80 cm. Thus, it took me quite some time to do it.

But I am very happy the result is fantastic. I cannot take a nice photo because the weather is bad and the photos are taken under the electrical lights.

If you are interested to buy large laminated prints, you can order from me.

Laptop Skin Spring Collection I and Glaze Products

It's Spring time. I remembered the excitement when Spring shows bit by bit. I guess you will be very happy to see some spring on your laptop.

Here is a collection of Spring laptop skins. I'll show some these days.

Order the Skins

Thank everyone who commented on glazing using resin post. There are many products out there such as modge podge and diamond glaze. They are used in a bit different ways. Modge podge is great to seal papers that provides glossy look. But it does not provide a raised dome look. Diamond glaze will provide raised glass dome look. But it doesn't grantee a clear glass look. Only resin do the trick that provides crystal clear glass look and raised dome.

But it is very difficult to use resin. It is messy, toxic and sometime you always get bubbles.

I haven't tried acrylic gel medium. I shall look into it sometime. There is something else such as 3D Crystal Lacquer. Check out this post Filed Test: Diamond Glaze and 3D Crystal Lacquer. It seems that 3D crystal Lacquer is much better. I am thinking to order one to try.

Owl Earrings

I think I have the beginner's luck. I got great result from applying resin. The pair of owl earrings is so nice with the glass look resin on top.

With the tips from others, I was very careful of mixing the resin and the harder, thus avoid some pitfalls such that the top is sticky.

Each pair of the earrings is $10 + $2.50 (S & H)

Resin Glazed Pendants and Earrings

I was working on charm framed pendants and earrings all these days. Initially I was trying to use diamond glaze because it is easy, not toxic. But I failed.

First, diamond glaze ruins my inkjet printed pictures. It always makes the colors of the image bleeding, even after I coated the image with acrylic coatings. Second, diamond either cracks or gives very cloudy look of the coating.

Finally I try to use resin. It is toxic and very troublesome, specially with a baby at house. But I don't know what else I can do and I love to try on these charm framed art jewelries.

I was given a lot advise and support from Singapore Esty Team. They powered many tips and tricks. It is such a great team.

I really like to thank Deborah, Cheryl and Ruth for their very kind support.

I put these charm frames on a box to cue to prevent dust settling in. I hope it turns out nicely when they are cued.

I am so looking forward to show some necklace and earrings soon.

Pretty Box to Go

This is the first box of jewelry I am going to send out today. It is a glass pendant of Peony and Butterfly. It is such a satisfaction to pack it in a matching box and ready to send.

It is very fun to work on Jewelries. It is very different from working on illustration and painting. I now understand why there are so many people making jewelries.

I am still developing charm frame pendants or necklaces with my art in a picture charm frame. Hope to show some tomorrow.

Cherry Blossom, Laptop Skins and My First Art Pendant Sale

I am so excited that I sold my first art pendant, the Peony and Butterfly pendant.

This is my first time that I get my hand on jewelries. I can see that there many more jewelry makers out there than art and others. It is very difficult to get attention to your creation. Thus, I am super excited that I can managed to get one sold.

Coming back to my art work, I am thinking of coming up of some welcome spring series. The Spring print is one of them. These days, I'll concentrate on Cherry Blossom. It always makes me excited when I see cherry blossom pictures and paintings. They are just so beautiful to paint.
