HELLOOO! Long time no see! I didn't write any post for a long time, I was busy of my internship. It made us being miss to each other. I had so many stories to be share and so does fili. Btw, before I share about #CraftyAfterDinner, let me share about the story behind it. We planned to have a meeting in National Gallery of Indonesia since last month. We arrived there at 10 A.M. and walking around looking for the way to get in to the gallery, But, all galleries were closed until September due  to renovation. So, we were moving to Grand Indonesia to enjoy Jakarta Great Sale and be crafty.

Fili has remaining stitch-stuffs of her portfolio. So, we decided to do some craft using it. She tough me simple cross-stitch. We were begin with ♥ pattern .  

Our serious face while doing the stitch.

TADAAAA! Our (actually it's Fili's) DIY cross-stitch has done. Mine was unfinished and failed :(. 

Cut cut the ♥, stick it to kraft card (which can be found here), write some notes, and VOILA, new handmade greeting card has done (see another handmade greeting card here).


Taking some photos with our new handmade greeting card :) .

Anyway, say Hi! to Fili's new Oxford Shoes :) .

Finally, we made something productive between our hectic day and we are going to make another craft using #CraftyAfterDinner. Anw, Fili is joining a competition by Samsung Galaxy A. Please help vote for her in this three easy steps : 

1. Go to Galaxy Commenity's web and log in via Facebook or Twitter.

 2. Open Fili's account (click here) and like all the pictures on the page. 

3. Please help share this post too. After all, Sharing is Caring, right ? :D

Thank you very very much for helping and Happy Eid Al Fitri for those who celebrate :)

Intermezzo // 04 : Good Reads

Hello folks! We have met again yet in another weekend. But the thing is, it's July already! It means that we have already been halfway through 2015. Phew, it sure has been an interesting year! Anyway, in the end of my previous Intermezzo, I did mention that I have some good reads that I have been enjoying lately that I would like to share with you guys. Well, here it goes.

Instead of doing the usual video and picture showing, I figure out that since this is about reading, I will put them on list instead and linked it to the respective site ((and especially since the reads I wanted to share are more than expected))

1. The image featured is actually taken from 2014 in Bali, but I have just found about it now. Anyhow, I love how Von Wong shared his stories through his blog and vlog as well. 

2. I found out about this super cute blog about Korea which sadly is in hiatus. I hope that she will blog again one day! Also, I have this furniture playset from this post! They are exactly the same though mine is bought in Indonesia

3. Last week, I have been all crazy reading about small-business branding and blogging through Elle & Co , Permanent Procrastination and Wonderlass. They all have interesting and useful tips that totally helps me.

4. Just found out about this amazing (!!) blog recently from Skunkboy's blogpost, Aww, Sam! Look at all those pretty colors and yummy donuts!

5. A very inspiring read that I have been slowly backtracking. I have had the similar idea before when I somehow stumbled upon this and enjoyed reading it as my inspiration.

6. Also, I have been super intrigued to try out freezer meal after spending many nights after work reading these blogs: Money Saving Mom, Life as Mom and basically googling and pinteresting about it. Oh, and still figuring out about this too. 

7. Local digital media has started to rise significantly, for example Manual. I think they are one of the best out there with nice web design and good photos.

8. Another one is Kanekin, which started out as a design studio and has now developed into so much more. Thank you for supporting local brands!

9. I have been a long time reader of Elle & Jess, but it's not until this recent post that makes me feel so connected with them. Thank you for being so brave to share something so personal through internet.

10. Last but not least, our newly launched Budget-Friendly Picnic Party series has now compiled into an e-magazine! You can read it online through issuu or download it here.

+ And also, congratulations Gani for winning Asia's Next Top Model cycle 3! #TeamIndonesia

That's it for today's Intermezzo. Phew, there are quite few reads, aren't they? Also, when it comes to reading online, usually it is always linked one to another. So I totally recommend you to do this on weekend or holiday. And speaking of holiday, Lebaran holiday is coming soon! Do you have any plans for vacation? Or do you have any good reads you would like to share?

Our E-Magazine is Here!

Hello guys! It has been a fun journey sharing our take on planning a Budget-Friendly Picnic Party, so we figure out that it's about time to compile them into one and make it easier for you guys. Well, without further ado, we present you, our first ever e-magazine! Woohoo!!! 

Inside the e-magazine, besides of the previously shared DIYs and fun tips, you will also find some behind-the-scenes and up close photo that we did not share on the blog. Also, if you fancy minimalist layout, hopefully you will like our e-magazine ;)

If you are curious about what we have on the table or how we party it, you will definitely find it inside the magazine. Another reason that we made this magazine is because we would like to make it easier for you to navigate the whole DIYs and inspire you to make your own party happen. You can read it online here or if you want to download and read anywhere anytime, you can go here.

We sincerely hope that you guys will enjoy the first issue of our magazine! Also, we will be very happy to hear your feedback. Lastly, do you have any interesting ideas that you want us to try for the next issue? Or maybe, is anyone out there up for a collaboration? It is going to be fun!
