seven random facts!

Blaze tagged me. :)

SEVEN RANDOM FACTS

1. I'm finally on break! I don't have school for an entire month!!!

2. I am still very much in love with the Power Puff girls. :) I just went on a shopping spree at the Scholastic Book Fair Warehouse. I got myself a book with 31 Power Puff Postcards. The rest, books and toys, are Christmas gifts. Do you see those lemurs??? They cost me a buck each! :)



3. I just started to carve stamps. Here are my favorite designs so far:







I need more practice though. The worst part is when I'm nearly done with a stamp and I accidentally swipe off an eye. It's happened more than once. So now I have a pile of one-eyed stamps.

4. I am Vietnamese, but I was born in Texas, and now I live in California. Here is a piece I did for my mom and dad's Vietnamese organization for children (the boy reminds me of my little brother when he was younger):



5. I don't like to eat.

6. I have no Christmas decorations up! oops.

7. I got this lovely smile award from Duda Daze:



YAY! :)

Your stamps are really good - shame about all the one eyed ones though!

No wait .... you don't like to eat?? How strange ..... that's one of my favourite hobbies!

I hope you have a brilliant break - a whole month, how fab :)

The stamps look awesome!!! You did good! I tried carving stamps after and the process totally killed me eyes, but I'd love to try again!
(I LOVE LOVE LOVE Vietnamese food! I make Vietnamese coffee at home, the really strong one with condensed milk, everyday! Yum!!)

I recommend carving the details of the stamps first as much as possible, so if you swipe off an eye then you won't have done all that work ;)

great job on those though, they're adorable!

Hee hee...I remember liking the Powerpuff Girls before they even aired on Cartoon Network. I can't remember when I first saw them, but it was like 1993 or 1994. Ages ago! And I still love doing Powerpuff-style drawings.

The stamps are nice! I especially like the gingerbread guys. And the drawing you did for your parents' Vietnamese organization is just too cute!

How come you don't like to eat? I eat almost anything and everything! :-) The piece you did for Vietnamese organization for children is so sweet!!

Hey, did you know that Craig McCracken, creator of the Power Puff Girls, is my first cousin! Yes, my maiden name was McCracken. Our dad's were brothers. His dad passed away when I was in grade school . Soon after my aunt moved them all out to CA where Craig went on to become the most famous McCracken to date! :)
Anyway...I love the PPG's too!
