Dream City Exhibition

I saw an exhibition recently. The title was 'Dream City'.

Some of the students used quilting to express their ideas.

Their works were so pretty. They may give you idea on what to quilt, lol!

Below are the three that I like most.


This one is not just my dream city, the houses are my dream house too!

I live in tall building. I really want to have a house with a garden in front of it. That must be very pretty!

How to Decorate / Draw Wood Door Hanger?

In the last Father's Day, my son and I made a special gift to Daddy.

That was a wood door hanger with words of love.

I should share this earlier, but I am busy looking after my son who is on summer holiday.

I am a mom, who does not want to miss any minute to get along with my son. Soon, he will leave me and play with his friends only.


My son and I discussed on what to write on the door hanger first.

I suggested that one side can write, 'Keep Quiet! Daddy is sleeping! Shhh...'

He agreed. In fact, this was for reminding my son not to disturb Daddy when he wants to have a sleep in the bedroom, lol!

10 Creative Uses of Embroidery / Stitchery Hoop in Crafts

I discover that embroidery hoop is very good for making home decorations / crafts.

I have wrapped up 10 creative ideas for making crafts with embroidery hoops. They are all easy to make and can be done by kids.


1. Wall Clocks

You can just buy the hoop and clock movement, and then design the clock with kids. Clocks can be put on the wall in kid's room. Whenever you have tired of the old clock design, you can use new materials to make another one. That is so simply and funny!

8 Meaningful Father's Day Cards / Quotes

I think that making something by children that is memorable is better than just buying a gift to Daddy.

Last year, my son and I drew a Father's Day card. This year, we plan to draw something onto a wood door hanger.

On it, we plan to write something like 'I love Daddy!' on one side, and 'Shhh... Daddy is sleeping' on the other side.

We have not started to draw cos my son is still having examinations at school. It will be ended soon. After that, we will start to make it. Guess Daddy must like this!

How about you? Have you made the card for your Daddy?? If no, this blog post must give you inspirations.

Last year when I drew the card, I did not know what to write on it. This year, I discover Pinterest and found quite a lot of meaningful quotes or words to be put on Father's Day card.

They are as below. Hope you can find one suitable for your Father's Day card.

Among all, I like the one below most. It is so lovely and so meaningful!

Miyazaki Animation Layout Designs (including Totoro)

Last Sunday, we went to see a special exhibition - Miyazaki Animation Layout Designs.

Don't know who is Miyazaki?? That is OK.

How about Totoro, the big grey cat?? That is designed by Miyazaki.

When I was a teenager, I liked Totoro so much!

It is so cute, especially when he carried a small umbrella.

I like its smiling face too. That is so lovely.
