I'm Back!!

In the land of blog land, there's this blog that been deserted for a while. Then, one day... knock... knock. Oh yay, there's a knock on the portal! Anyone here? 

I am back!! Anyone miss me? Okay, don't answer that question, because if you say no you'd just burst my happy bubble. Anyway, I've been MIA from blog land for a wee bit as I took some time off to visit my family in Indonesia. So, the blog kind of neglected there while life happens. :)

This trip was a big deal for us as on this trip hubby and I finally get to meet our niece, Shakira who was born about one and a half years ago. I have waited for this from the day she was born. When I finally hold her, goodness, I have to remind myself don't go crazy, like don't hog and kiss her all the time otherwise she'll think she has crazy aunt.  I mean, I could just hug and kiss her sweet face all day long!! Shakira is the only baby in the Wirianta's family, so needless to say, she's the center of our love & attention. ;)

Second, this the first time hubby made the trip to my home country and finally  meet my whole family. I mean, he met my mom and brothers of course, but he still hasn't met my SIL who couldn't make it to our wedding back then. My SIL is a big part of my family as I have known her since I was a kid and I consider her as my own sister. So, yep, we finally get to take the complete family picture.

There's plenty of picture of course and I'll  be sharing those soon. I am an auntie in love with her niece, so yes, I'll be sharing pic of my li'l princess. :)

I came home sick and had to go back to work right away, so I really haven't play in my craft room, yet. But, I have this cute card that I made for i {heart} papers before I left. This card was inspired by Japanese Kokeshi doll.

The doll was cut using Silhouette and I dressed up the kimono using Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals and More Fresh Cuts

Isn't she adorable? I always have a love for Japanese Kokeshi doll. Never had one, but I always love the look. And, to my delight, during our transit in Tokyo, I finally get to buy a real Kokeshi doll. I only get the small one as stuff in Tokyo is so darn expensive! They have many super cute stuff that I was goo goo ga gah over them, but boy, looking at the price... hm...  never mind. 

Speaking about price. A little bit of enabling. If you want to replenish your craft supplies, check out i {heart} papers moving sale that's going on right now. Everything in the store is 30% off!! You better hurry, as many of the stuff would go pretty quick.

Well, that's it from me for now. I'll be back with more stories. Happy 4th!!
