When 2 Hearts Become One...

Congratulations for my loving client, Shahida's parents on their 26th Wedding Anniversary... I think, this will be a very nice surprise gift for them :).




In the meanwhile, another client of mine will have a Wedding, start a new life... in about one month from now. She has asked me to design her Wedding Card with a Flower Theme pen-sketch concept. I think it's a lovely idea :) and will make a beautiful reminder for everyone...

Congratulations, dear Maisilina who is also the lovely owner of blog lurvering.blogspot.com.

An Old Song on A Quiet Day...

The holiday was unusually quiet around the neighborhood...

I guess, most city dwellers were celebrating their holidays somewhere else. Maybe they went back to their kampungs... maybe some traveled overseas- playing in the snow or surfing in the sea... perhaps a few were like me, just quietly spending time at home, counting down the hours to the New Year of 2012.

Whatever it was, most of us were already busy planning ahead or mulling over ideas of embarking yet another new year in our lives. But again, perhaps a few were like me, just taking life as it comes... a day at a time.

And at the time like this, I really am missing my Bee (away...outstation). Too bad you got sick when you're not at home :( Get well soon, dear... and be safe.

Here's one of your favorites which has touched my heart in every single ways ;).




Chris De Burgh - Old Fashioned People



Old-fashioned people, they never know why, 
The world is changing day to day, 
It moves so fast and leaves them in another time; 
An old-fashioned dancer is dancing alone, 
Dreaming of those music halls, 
And with his lady waltzing away until the dawn, 
And I thought I heard him say, 
Please don't take my dreams away; 
They carry me back again, show me that life again, 
Carry me back to the places that I knew, 
Carry me back again, show me that life again, 
Carry me back to the places that I knew...

Old-fashioned lovers, they walk in the park, 
Beside the river hand in hand, 
And hurry home for tea before it gets dark, 
Could be you and me one day, 
Time will come when we will say, 
Carry me back again, show me that life again, 
Carry me back to the places that I knew, 
Carry me back again, show me that life again, 
Carry me back to the places that I knew; 
Carry me back again, show me that life again, 
Carry me back to the places that I knew...




Enjoy.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

When my Bee was away, I would spend time at my parents' house and did my works in my sister's bedroom. Yesterday, while busy doing my work, my nephews came flocking by and asking me this and that about what I was doing. To keep them occupied ( and stopped bothering me- ha!)... I gave each of them a drawing paper and paint for me something about the holiday spirit!

Here's what my 7 years old nephew, Amin came up with...





Amin has his own story on the painting. Something about Mr. Santa, his son and an elf brought some gifts into a house near a wishing well... and another elf waiting in the ride up there with a ladder. Yup. Something like that.

Now, let's see what his 5 years old brother, Hakim did...





Hmmm... well, Hakim said these characters of his are HAPPY because of the HOLIDAYS!!!

Way to go, Hakim! :D


Have fun, everyone.

Ayu Jamal and her NEW Header!

My sweet and lovely blogger friend, Ayu Jamal from ayujamal.com has requested for a new header for her blog. Two months ago, I created one for her e-shop.


When she wanted a new one with her original picture in it (instead of her caricature), I made something like this:


Then, she got back to me saying she needed something much simpler... without any products like her previous one. But, if I could slot in her dream pink Mini Car like the one featured in July post, she would really love it!


I looked at what she has provided me with- 2 lovely pictures of herself.. :

Hmmm... I was thinking... how to design just a simple header with white background, highlighting her name and incorporating the cute little car...?

I brainstorm with a few compositions... and lastly, I came up with this- which she absolutely approved :)


Now, if you look closely, the one sitting on the car has given me quite a challenge since I have to somehow 'create' her crossing legs because you can't see the rest of the legs in the original photo given (see pic above).

With the magic of Photoshop, I managed to make it. Heheheee... not that easy, I can you tell you that :)


Thank you Ayu.
I'm humbled by the way you appreciate my works and I've had so much fun making them for you.
May Allah bless you, your business and your family... always.

Happy Birthday 2 My Lovely Sis!

What?

You're over 30 already... and have 3 kids?

I still remember you- always the cheeky one, loved to pose for the camera and played with Mom's lipsticks!
Now, you have two gals who acted just like you. Hahaaaa.... it's like watching a reruns... 'live' ones :D

No matter what, you'll always be in my heart, sis.

Sorry, I kind of made this Birthday Card/ Tag at the very last minute before your PARTY (delicious cake's', by the way). Hence, the lack of colors. huhuu...


And it was fun celebrating your day with MOM-in-law who has the same exact birthday with you!. Happy Birthday, Mak Saba!
