Ooo...La...La... Vintage Beauties

I have a liking for all things vintage, and when I chanced upon this pictures of Vintage Beauties, I used my scrap-booking skills and came up with this.

 This is one piece, that I started off with...



And then I ventured to do another piece.

Name Sakes... TYKE

Some of us enjoy having our names on display, while others resent that idea. I think it's pretty cute when it comes to kids and pets. After moving back to Sembawang, my boys and I found a new spot for our Yorkshire Terrier to rest. Wanting him to take ownership of that particular space, I stitched him out his name.


Here's my work in progress... I was so anxious to see the end product.


And here's the end product, which I am truly so proud of. I am pretty sure my little doggy likes it too.

Introducing Hart-Knacks

After the launch of The Voyage Love Collection, there was another idea that came brewing. Reaching deep down into my creative valve, and a little research from scrap booking, a new range was born. Hartwarmers, now presents, gift cards for you, from The Hart-Knacks Collection. This is simply a draft that I started with. I ask that you bear with me, as with any artiste, the best is yet to come. So, as I venture into scrap booking and scrap materials, I hope that inspiration guides me to create much more beautiful pieces. the truth be said, I just have so much fun, simply shopping from one craft store to another.

Introducing Voyage Love Collection... The Sweetheart

Gifts can be given for any occasion. We can actually find a gift to express almost any emotion. A close friend of mine was going into surgery. A couple of us wanted to cheer her up with a gift. She is a very organized person, who loves pretty containers. So using a cute little parchment briefcase, I started with the base of my new project. And as she loves sweet smelling lotions, I incorporated that too.

Our Private Keepsakes

Lately, I have taken a keen interest in a long lost hobby of mine, Tapestry, or better known as cross-stitching. These are a few pieces that I have completed.

I simply enjoy my moments, I spend with Art and Crafts of any kind. 
Here, is me starting off a stitching project.

Animal Moments
I love this piece, it goes so well in any nursery.

Onward Christian Solider

This one was inspired by my principal, a very smart and loving woman. She fought through many things in life and come out triumphant always. She is truly one I admire and respect. This was a gift I made just for her.

This would be how the packaging for such a gift would be delivered.

Minting Lavenders

A dear friend of mine from Germany, needed to wish her mum a "Happy Birthday".  It was her mum's 77th birthday. What better way to make your mum feel the love, then by sending her a personalized gift with all the things she loves. Her mum loves lavender scented lotions. So she suggested, that I prepared her one with such scents. Also, she wanted her mum to have a box of chocolates to enjoy as she relaxed. She chose from our base ideas, to have it BOX-IT. And so the creating begun... and wahlah....


These are all the things that go into the gift.

ahh... yet potpourri too.


 and the completed gift.


Inclusive of a uniquely handmade gift card.

This beautiful piece from the Box-It Collection, was sold for S$120.00, inclusive of delivery. And we accomplished our vision to warm hearts again.

I had just completed this and had uploaded it onto my Facebook. But even before I could upload it onto my blog, it was already bought. I was so excited.

Pink Passion

This is definitely for anyone who is passionate about pink, the candle can be changed to suit the person you are presenting it too. In this case, it was used for a mum. You may request for that special person, and I will definitely make the attempt to get it for you. However, due to stock and availability, it may vary.

Shortcake & Milk in a Basket

I am a person who adores Shortcake (my favourite). I thought that it would make a great addition to this basket. Adding come of these, added lots more comfort (and calories) to the gift instantly. The Pistachio Biscuits, were however, a healthier choice, I would say. But they tastes, just as yummy, and goes great with afternoon tea. You can practically, add anything that you would like to the basket. You would definitely know the person you are gifting, much better.

Lavender Essence

I have been noticing a trend where Lavender scented stuff have becoming a big hit amongst my clientele. When you think of Lavender scents, you think fresh, calming and relaxing feelings. And I guess, you are telling the one you love, that you want them to take some time by themselves to rest and relax. This simple piece went for just S$50.00, to a regular customer.
