Get to Know

Handmade greeting cards and Origami are my hobbies and my love for paper folding started with folding a simple frog for my students for the poem 'The little frog'. I'm a full time language teacher (my other passion) and I work with lovely kids all day. I do agree that commerical printed cards are great and convenient, but they are just not the same as sending someone a piece of handmade card, which has that personal touch, from me to you. Materials I use for my handmade cards are simple and carefully coordinated to bring out the beauty of different paper texture and colours contrast. I use a range of water colour papers, polyester satin ribbons, gift wrapping ribbons, and silver metallic cords to soften the look of the cards. These materials are similar to what the scrap booking hobbyists use. My work is different from scrap booking in the way that I refuse to use commercially available toppers or scrap booking papers for my handmade cards. That also means that I have more room to express my feelings of beauty with more handmade toppers (e.g. origami models) which I made myself. :) With my passion and dedication to my hobby, I hope I could bring this happiness from my creations to you.
