Present for a Lovely Woman

It's always nice to know the story behind a painting.

A friend of mine asked me to draw a birthday present. Her friend loves children very much and had lots of foster children (anak asuh). I only painted 3 child, because the wood wouldn't be enough to draw dozens :) what a beautiful heart!

Would You Wood Yourself?

Lately my hours are filled with... talenan a.k.a wooden cutting board! The first time I paint on wood was to draw flower in this post. Then I try to accommodate my friend's need of unique anniversary gift. He asked me to paint his & his wife's face! At first I was nervous, this wooden painting is new for me. And I don't think I can paint realistically. The face painting will be different from their real face :( But however, the truth is I don't really like realistic painting because I have a weird feeling that people's eyes in the painting would blink at night! :p

Here's my latest work.
Painting 4 faces on 4 talenan. It's not easy as copy paste. All is handpainted, level of stress & boredom gets higher :p
Family portrait
Custom Anniversary Gift
I still don't know whether I will seriously promote & market my talenans work, because painting these woods really take time, patient, and much love, of course! :D I could sit all day in the dining table painting, and forgot to clean the house *eh*
In case you wanna ask me about the talenan, you can contact me through Line tianandaw or Whatsapp 081 2356 4958 ;)

Floating Market Lembang Short Trip

My neighborhood community a.k.a arisan ibu RT & RW held an outing to Bandung last Wednesday. It's been years since their last vacation together, and they've been missing their togetherness.
We visited Panci Bima (maklum wisata emak-emak), Floating Market, and Kartika Sari Dago, but really Floating Market was the highlight of the day!


Oh yeah maybe you're wondering how old am I to join 'arisan ibu-ibu RT' which consists women from 40-75 years old. I've just joined the arisan for a few months, since I moved to my house now. Being a housewife, I don't have many friends coz friends at my ages are working during weekdays! I feel like I should socialize with my neighborhood, for example, joining arisan. Of course I was the youngest member :p They even said, "Oh you're the same age as my third child!" or "Your age is like my grandson!"
I brought tripod and Fujifilm X10 pocket camera so that we can take photo in full team.

An Afternoon in Lucerne

Salaam. This is a late post of some unblogged photos from Europe trip 2012 :)
Time surely flies!
With my nephew, N, he was only 2 years old yet sooo talkative. "Tante Tiyak jaketnya lembut yaaa..." and he was so attached to me when I put my parka :))) *in this picture I didn't wear the 'lembut' jacket and he was, "Tante Tiyak kok gak pake jaket yang lembuuut..." :))))))

In the morning we went to Mount Titlis at Engelberg
Udah pantes belum buat ngemong anak? :p *doakan yaaaa*

DIY Rose Stamp from Pakchoi

My thought every time I cut pakchoi (and other vegetables in cabbage-family) is, "Hey, the leftover looked like rose!" Instead of going to garbage immediately, let's play with them.

See? The vegetable leftover forms a rosy shape

Natural Soap Review: Cute 7Cactus

Lately my skin felt so dry and cracked and I remembered soap in the market contains lotsss of chemicals. According to Healthywomen.org, here's 4 ingredients you need to avoid:


I tried to substitute using commercial soap to natural soap. While browsing instagram, I found beautiful arrays of soap photos from 7cactus and wanted to purchase immediately! The claim of 7cactus based on the owner's experience is:
...It makes total sense to me why handmade soaps are better for our skin compared to store bought ones. The absence of harsh detergents and god knows what chemicals, replaced by natural, skin loving oils and pure additives, you be the judge which one is good for your skin.
My soaps arrived! Beautifully wrapped and smell oh-so-good! They have ready stock soap,  means that the soaps are ready to be used, they have been cured (cured = let sit for 4-8 weeks for saponification process). That's a good thing! I once interested to buy soap from other seller but the soap must wait 4 weeks, no!
