Aah, some people probably won't understand even my husband when I so thrill to open the package that has been sitting on my dinning table when I came back home after an exhausted day took kids to the Magic House - Children Museum .  It was a quite surprise when one of my beloved friend, E sent me a sweet treats .. a lot of beautiful Japanese Fabrics, Japanese beautiful zippers , hand made pouches with so many details  , and so many more ...  



I do !!! I've been spoiled .. I'm a lucky lady.  Some  may say life is not fair, even my daughter's friend who always complaining and say "it's not fair" every time my daughter or others friend get something sweet as rewards from school.   I tell you, indeed in some case life is not fair but you earned  Whatever hard work you did always has something in the future, you earned. But sometime as like my daughter said "it just a random luck" - so don't be jealous ..


 
So in this case I'm the lucky one, oh well ..
 
 if you are not crafter you might not know how precious fabrics for us ha..ha..ha ... seem crazy, but to see piles of beautiful fabrics make me smile, make me happy ... my head spinning , what pattern I should use, what should I create with this beauties ?? so many ideas coming.. and you just need to wait and see what I 'm going to make LOL

 
 
see how beautiful this pouches is ??  my daughter already claimed the stripes one because she loves the cherry on the zipper, and we will bring this pouches into our journey .. stay tuned ..!!
 
So far life is bring me friends, enemies,  frienemies, hatter, but I don't count the last three,  I might not see them in person yet, but they are just too nice to me. Life is too short to think about negativity. Again, dear E thank you so much ...
