Book Quote: One to Take by Tia Louise

I love reading. Reading helps me escape, feel, think, and learn. I'm the kind of reading who highlights (only on ebooks, not on paperbacks!) quotes that spoke to me or connected with me. And sometimes, I use those quotes to make fan arts.

Here is something I made from One to Take. "I see her lovely wings extending as she takes flight, and my heart is left behind in my chest, hollow and dead."

Using Faber-Castell Connector Pens

I'm not going to write anything about the book, but in case you want to check it out, here is the link: And if you want to check out Tia Louise, you can visit her website.

Make Your Own Origami Paper

My son loves to do origami. It was cute at first, we even encouraged him. But it came to a point where he's love for the art became wasteful. He depleted our supply of bond paper, his quiz pad for school, he even uses receipts to fold origami. So to solve this issue, we told him that he can only fold origami using a special origami paper, you know, the store-bought origami paper. The origami paper that we didn't have. Harharhar.

After MONTHS of nagging from our son, I finally told him that we'll make our own origami paper. So yesterday, that's what we did.


  1. Old magazine
  2. Cutter

How to make a square:

This is just for those who doesn't know how to make a square out of a rectangular paper.

1. Fold one side of the paper in a triangle. Make sure that the ends are aligned.

2. Fold the excess rectangular strip of paper where the triangle ends.

3. Cut off the rectangular strip.

We made three different sizes to maximize the use of each page.

Large origami paper - use the whole page to make a square

Medium origami paper - cut the page in half and use each half to make a square

Small origami paper - use the excess rectangular strip for both the large and medium origami paper to make a square
