City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 234 ~ A Piece of Sky

This week at

Ros set the theme

A Piece of Sky

I wanted to create the big blue sky with white clouds, like those I see in Santa Monica, CA

so I spray some blue watercolor paint with glimmer mist and water randomly on my work top, and then put a piece of watercolor paper upside down just to dab and absorb the colors, I wanted part blue  for the sky and part white for the clouds.....

and I love the effect

oh, and old fashion ferries wheel here, I am feeling a little bit nostalgic here

come play along with us at CCCB, this week we have this....

wonderful fairy paper pack sponsored by Ros for the winner

and our October Guest Star Greta Hess created another lovely card for you

Creative Blog Hop

You might have seen the Creative Blog Hop going around lately....


I was fortunate enough, that my dear friend Ros nominated me as one of the crafter that inspired her, thank you Ros, you are a great inspiration to me as well.

Here are the answers of the questions being asked -

What am I working on
I usually get my DT work done as soon as we have the theme set up, they includes work for City Crafter Challenge Blog and LESSology monthly challenge. Besides the DT work, I took part in a few challenges regularly, like Papertrey ink make it monday, My Favorite Things color palette challenge and Moxie Fab World whenever they have a challenge.

How does my work differ from others of it genre
I don't know, you tell me, LOL!
I only know that I like trying different thing, I love shabby chic, lots of layers but I also love clean and simple, especially now that postage are so high, I tends to do more flat, envelope friendly cards.

Why do I create what I do
Simply one word - JOY

How does your creative process work
Not sure if it sounds weird to you, most of the time, when I see something that inspired me, it could be a magazine cover, it could be window display, it could be something I see from blogland, images from tumblr etc.... I need to get to my craft room like right away.... when it doesn't allowed, it bothers me even in my sleep, I will keep thinking about it and just can't wait for get into the craft room first thing in the morning. But.... a lot of time, the project just didn't come up the way I had in mind, it revolves along the way.... and it might turn out something completely different from what I had in mind at the first place, weird?

Alright, so much of me, I better stop here.

To keep the Creative Blog Hop going, I have to pick two crafters that I admire, here you go....

Audrey Pettit from A Peek Into My Scrappy World
What I love most about Audrey's work is.... she is just amazing in everything she does, she has an eye for colors, her style is sweet and feminine and very eye catching, besides all her paper crafts, she also great at sewing, every time she posted a sewing project, I just want to run into my craft room and pull some of the fabrics out and start working, haha.. but my craft room is so packed and I had to put the fabrics in a big plastic box at the bottom of all the paper, that makes it hard to get them out, whew...

Audrey is good at holiday decor, especially halloween, if you haven't seen one of Audrey's haunted house tour, you gotta to check it out.


Ira Huberts from Ira's Crea Corner
Ira's work is like a beautiful display in an art gallery, a museum..... every of her projects looks like it needs tons of hours, it is complex and it always come with a story, but most importantly, it is always unique and beautiful.

Thanks for the inspiration Audrey and Ira, I hope you keep the Creative Blog Hop going in this great place we all shared - THE BLOGLAND!

Our Beautiful World 68 ~ Autumn

This week at

Ros picked the word


I love Autumn, my favorite season here and everywhere.

My Chinese name means Autumn Sparrow.

Here's my Autumn decor at home

love the smell of apple, especially apple cider, I should make some this week

we went to M&M store at the strip last week and DH suggested some Autumn colors candies

My jalapeno plant grow so well this year and I harvest 5 batches this Autumn, so you can imagine how many of these are in my fridge right now

Now that I live in Las Vegas, I love Autumn even more, summer is too hot here, so we always wait for the first sign of Autumn when the weather is in the 80s most of the time, we sit outdoor a lot more. We had friends over last weekend, this was my Autumn setting.

I just love Autumn, do you?

Hope right over to

to see what my team sharing with you this week
