Some shots of simple watercolour + typewritten lyrics in my journal, and pretty little packages to be sent..
This typewriter is my precious baby, it's one of the last Remington models to be produced with glass keys. I like the look of the two-colour ribbon although it doesn't have a colour switch, and I love the feel of typing with it. ♥
Also, I'm on instagram, @sodacrush so you can follow me there as well, I mostly snap shots of my journal pages and class doodles :)

Updates! | Go to post ➜
So all the pictures today are of old things, I just dug some of the interesting shots out of my phone. Skipped yet another week, because I've been sick (again). There's a bit of a trend going here.. I think flu meds no longer work on me, and becasue of this week-long flu I've also got a tear duct infection that'll have to be cut and drained if the swelling doesn't subside D: (Sometimes I feel like this blog has become a chronicle of illnesses) And since I can't wear my glasses (which put pressure on the swelling), I've been reduced to crawling through readings for class at an absymal rate... And stressing myself out over not getting schoolwork done. Mmhmm, so all these pictures are mostly things that got done before school started - stickers, painted with watercolours and stamped. A happy little felt...thing, with one leg unstuffed. Polymer clay owl charms. And stamps. I love stamps, both the rubber and postage sort, and I think postage stamps are much more charming than labels...I love these huge pretty stamps that were released when the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore opened. I haven't been, though I'd love to go, for now I'll be content with watching the kingfisher that lives near my dorm :D
Mmhmm :) If I do update (sporadically) it'll likely be of random things like this, mostly because looking through them makes me feel better when I'm stressed, aha.

Stickers + Packaging | Go to post ➜
Missed a week, and I'm still really busy with schoolwork ): Caught Avenue Q over the weekend, it was hilarious, and the singers unexpectedly impressive. And here's some pictures of what's been happening anyway. The coloured stickers were painted with watercolours and stamped. The hedgehog stickers were made with a stamp carved by my sister :D (Assorted stickers come free with every purchase.) Usually she does huge sprawling lino carvings of bonsai and landscapes, but (like me) school has forced her to downsize her hobbies so she makes these tiny adorable animal stamps ♥ And on the way home from school I found these mini paper doilies, so I've been playing around with packaging a bit.
