Bye World... Hello Universe!

Yep, yep, yep....  it's time to leave Japan after 5 years.  That means everything has to go, including my craft room.  What are you talking about?  Of course, every sheet of paper, every strand of thread up to the very single brad and eyelet will go with me.  Heck, I'm not leaving anything from my craft corner!  It's funny, because when the movers saw my craft corner, I can tell they just didn't like the sight of it.  They knew it's going to be one hell of whatever to pack all those things.  Even I was a little embarassed, because I know for them, most of my craft stuff are junk.  Well, not for me.  They are my precious....  haha!  Needless to say, I had to help them pack stuff from my craft corner.  Who else can give my craft stuff TLC but me!

What excites me a lot is the thought that I will have my very own craft room after we move in to our new home.  Although we don't have a house yet, just the thought of having my own craft room is really thrilling.  And I must have my own craft room.  It doesn't have to be big, but just enough to put everything and do my crafts.  I keep on imagining how it will look like..... where the cardstocks will be, where the embellishments will be, the craft table, the computer...  What color scheme will I use?  What's my layout going to be?  Man......

Now, my craft corner is nothing but space.  I can see the dust that settled on the walls.  The many hours I spent in there to do my scrapbook pages, albums, cards, swaps.  When I'm sitting in that area, I'm just in another world....

I guess when I have my own craft room, I'll be having my own universe :)

REVIEW: Popcorn Pens

Category:  Other
I chanced upon these pens in Yuzawaya Craft Store in Yamato, Japan. I didn't understand it
at first, but when I saw the pamphlet that came with it, I understood how it worked. You just write with it on any surface, heat it, then the ink just puffs out. Way cool!!!
