.."If you can dream it, you can do it !"

I first read the above quote in my daughter's bedroom. She had assignment from her teacher to write somebody's or their own quote to motivate them. Later she taped the paper with big print letter on the her bedroom's wall. I knew from her it's Walt Disney' quote.
The quote truly 'kicked' me on the heart. I should do something, made my dream come true one day.

Well, I will share a little it of me..
As long as I remember I love making craft since young aged and growing up I learned the joy that brightening others' heart with handmade gift and card. Since 2008 I learned to sew and quilt. Self taught with the helps of friends on blog land and those wonderful tutorials out there. The journey was really wonderful, soon I get hooked with sewing.

I became intense in sewing when my husband left us for a one year study abroad. Really grateful to find a new place where I could let go out my creative ideas into beautiful useful things. I found that sewing and quilting became one of my favorite sanctuaries. I get excited when work with colors, fabrics and get the chance to feel the different textures.

Working with unbleached natural local cotton, polyester batting and quilting it with simple organic lines is the most I loved! I enjoy to see its beauty and unique textures that popped out, another kind of beauty that slightly different from cotton batting.

Back to my dream...
It had been such a long time I want to own an online shop to sell my craft things.
The quote above and Jacquie's Spring to Finish Event has really challenged my self to make my DREAM come true. Thanks a lot to my daughter and Jacquie from TPS :)
Last week I finally set up a little corner on Etsy. I hope it would be a new challenging journey for me. I know my mind always moving, trying something different. Please visit my shop if you have time.
