oh, could you please share with ud how you did the fabric covers for the little albums?! {do the albums just slip inside the fabric covers?}. And those little tag albums with the kids artwork etc are just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing - and glad to see you are back bloggin! Have missed you!


i love these! they're so cute! they make me happy looking at them too. lucky harlmuni!


very cool, margaret!
love the mini too...


Look at you, talented girl. Gorgeous as always!

WOW these are amazing!! i wish i knew how to sew so i could come up with these creative gifts. i love craft projects but the one thing i can't do is sew or use a sewing machine :T awesome job...i especially LOVE the cards! so creative!

sarah cho

hi~ it's not so much a business as it is a hobby. well that's how it started out anyway, and then we started getting lots of orders and couldn't afford to make them for free anymore :( anyhoo, next time there's a Chung Clan gathering (maybe for the holidays again??) i will bring some! although, the chung clan already has pastry chefs that could probably whip up something even more delish! ;)


does everything you touch turn to gold or what?! the album covers are adorable & the mini-albums are just precious. aren't you glad jack talked you into it?!

happy mother's day!!


you've some secret mad skills!


what lovely gifts to give :), I really do love the little tag books are superb - I love the colour choices.
Can we see inside the mini albums? just to be nosey on how you constructed them? :)


having looked closer I now understand!!! really, i should pay more attention. Your sewing is awesome, esp the topstitching - am very impressed.


you don't have to go to the post office - have the post office come to you with free carrier pickup

I use it all the time. Print the postage at home, pack the box and leave it on the front step! Love it!!!

these are amazing!
you are so incredibly talented.
i must ask for the dimensions if you get a chance. i have wanted to make these forever for my mom and myself, but i am too lazy to figure it out.
that is some of my most favorite Alexander Henry fabric and i love the touch of ribbon.
the photo tag books are amazing. you are such a wonderful daughter and daughter-in-law.
happy mother's day, my friend!


Oh wow, your sewing project is VERY impressive. And your mini tag album... I love it. I so want to make one now. :)


Is there anything you CAN'T do?! Lovely lovely lovely gifties! Your mom is a lucky lady!

it's not bragging, i looove all of it. The albums are so useful and cute and I really love the ring with the cards of pics and drawing the kids did. How cute is that. Please post more of your beautiful projects. Really really cute rita. Hope hoonie has a happy b-day...I remember he and Celine were pretty close. :)


You are SO awesome!! I love, love, love the books and cards:) Wish we lived closer. The kids could play and we could make stuff (or at least you could teach me). Happy Late Mother's Day to you!


Beautiful!!! thanks for sharing your ideas.


hi rita, those are BEAUTIFUL!!! i wish i was creative enough to give something like that to my mom...

  • "I was kicking and screaming and yelling...because I missed you."
    Hoonie explaining one of his tantrums at daycare. Really, though, how could you be upset with him...especially after that last part? :)
  • "Because I tried to eat brother?"
    Hoonie's response when I asked him why he got in trouble. He actually bit him, haha!
  • "I need to get some more money for my collection."
    Me too, Matthew, me too! :)
  • "I don't have my eyes!"
    What Hoonie meant to say was that it was so dark he couldn't see.
  • "I'm gonna go outside to split some wood...with my shirt off."
    Um, yeah...whatever Jack! :P
  • "I prefer genius."
    Matthew's response to me when I referred to him as a Star Wars "nerd".
