my new crush at this new year

hey its already 2015, ooops and end of january already!!! how time flies...
my life after my resignation is even busier than before, sometimes i even forgot what day's today.... but again i say i'm happy:)

I still did a lot of handmade orders while cooking, layouting, picking up from school, going grocery store, and bla bla bla home works... lol:)) lately I just make an instagram account, so i can make a quick update if i dont have time to make a post at blogger:) you can find me or kindly follow @toscaberries

I want to tell you about the new crush... It was last november i passed by the craft store nearby... they have beads, the looming tools, wire... thread... and what i interested most was the bead loom! I kept telling myself not to buy the bead loom, and decided to go home without it. But unfortunately i hold no longer, i just bought it last week, and already finished my first project:)

I used three colors of miyuki beads, gold, cobalt, and slate blue, and also made the pattern myself. one other reason for this liking is i can explore the pattern... thought I can get so many inspiration from the famous Indonesian native weaving pattern... cant wait to begin my second project and more:)

a new me, a new life

Hai! after dissapear for months, here i am:) sitting at my new workplace, a home studio of mine, with two kids at my back, sleeping.
I'm entering my second months of unemployment from my office, yes, i'm quit, and the most asked question is why I decided to quit and how does it feel.
Turning off my 10 years work life at my ex office was huge thing, almost the same like taking marriage and having children, but after a long consideration, i've made it:) I just felt a lot of things were not balance anymore lately, the time i spent at the office... the time left for my kids and time left for myself, the amount of satisfaction and happiness, things i could do at home while i had to stay at office hours and...  went to office everyday was not any longer what i wanted...
I'm grateful for the supports from my beloved husband, mom, brothers, the kiddos, and friends... and I know my daddy in heaven will say "finally daughter!"

that is my new work space:) actually i plan to put my sewing machine beside the computer... but seems I am running out of space:p the table is too small.. lol^^
now.. if you ask me how i feel, i'll say i feel great, very blessed! I'm now a freelance graphic designer, a crafter, sometimes a stylist, and of course a working at home mommy:)
my biggest challenge now is balancing my family life with my proffessional life, i hope i can focus on both:)
