Taking online class about Foundations of Textile has been an eye-opening experience. Sharing three life changing lessons, highlights of my class exercises, and why taking this class is worth it.

It’s been a while since I wrote last April notes. What happened in the past year has been surreal, and I’m happy to be alive. Thank you for all the support!

I certainly didn’t expect to catch a serious case of winter blues and abandoned my blog for four months. It’s a humbling period; a struggle to up my energy and motivation. I was psychologically and spiritually restless. Now that I’m once again ready to work with my more creative side, I’d like to “air my grievances” and share why I went dark for the past couple of months. This is a hard post to write, so excuse my awkwardness that no doubt seeps through my writing.

A story of how I started using a sewing machine to do chores and ended up doing many sewing projects. It teaches me of not only fabric selections and sewing skills, but also mental exercises of discipline and motivation. Who knew that owning a sewing machine can be so rewarding?

I love traveling even though I don’t get to do it often, especially going overseas to other countries. When you travel less with a mindset of a tourist and more with a mindset of an explorer, the experience simply opens you. It makes you invigorated and inspired, ready to see things both expected and surprising. Before March, 4 years has passed since my last overseas trip. After my March 2013 Japan trip, I pray that I will get to travel more often. You really miss out a great deal when you don’t travel and experience things. Trust me.
Amongst all countries in the world, I love Japan. Perhaps not as a country I choose to live in, but a country whose way of life, culture, and technology I admire so much. Before our March 2013 Japan trip, it had been 7 years since I first visited Japan. It was only 5 days, but since then I was patiently waiting for a chance to visit that amazing country, this time with the love of my life (you know who). As always, but maybe more so this time, he took gorgeous pictures that I am very excited to share with you.
