It's Round, It's Real, It's Polka Dot!

Assalamualaikum and Good Day!

Polka dots are back in STYLE, and they're showing up on everything from scarves to blouses, to shoes to smartphone cases, children's clothing, toys and even furniture. All these beautiful dots would be my favorite pattern of the year. They always look simple, clean, fresh and festive! 

"I don't think there is ever a wrong time for a polka dot."
~ Marc Jacobs ~

I just love how the fancy colorful dots fascinate us from the first time we look at it. I'm using combination of red and bright yellow threads for the book, and I'm telling myself not to be afraid to use other nicest colors in the world. It'll surely look different and this 'experimenting' phase would be the BEST teacher of the rest!

"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it."
~ Maya Angelou ~

"I can spot a polka dot dress from hundreds of circles away."
~ Jarod Kintz ~

"A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement. Polka dots are a way to infinity."
~ Yayoi Kusama ~

It's a A5 polka dots handbound book ^_^

That's all for today. Feel free to leave comments if you like my post.
Enjoy your stay and have a blissful December!
Thank you.

My best Book Covers!

Assalamualaikum & Hello everyone,

All book covers are getting revealed! Are you inspired? Thinking crafty? Let's continue. I believe that craft papers, wrappers, recycle papers and any kind of papers that have patterns on it are GREAT in binding books.

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
~ Mark Twain ~

I'm not kind of choosy in picking papers for my book covers. As long as it looks nice, pretty, strong and I feel comfortable with it, I just grab it. Actually, I can hardly avoid looking at papers everytime I go out, so now you know why I have these entire collection. LOL.


“You can't judge a book by it's cover but you can sure sell a bunch of books if you have a good one.” 
~ Jayce O'Neal ~ 


Handbound books are never enough! Don't you agree? Not for me dear! It has been 9 months since I sold my very first handbound book, ooohhh there's so much more to be learned and explored. I should have post this HERE long ago, but I totally forgot to do that since I've already post it on my FB page. My bad. *sigh*


“Love is like a Batik created from many emotional colors,
it is a fabric whose pattern and brightness may vary”
~ Diane Ackerman ~

On top of all, the Brown Series are always my favorite book covers when I think of something natural and simple. For me, brown says stability, reliability, and approach-ability. It is the color of our earth and is associated with all things natural or organic.

"It is great HOW THE COLOR BROWN AFFECTS US PHYSICALLY; It supplies a feeling of wholesomeness, stabilizes, provides a connection with the earth and gives a sense orderliness"
~ Sensational Color ~

Thank you all,
Have a blissful December!
