Positively lift your spirit and be inspired! Do not let your dreams always be dreams...
Up! "Adventure is out there"
I'm pleased to present my first wall art painting inspired from timeless inspirational Pixar movie "Up". Started from several weeks ago, pouring my new idea into a blank board of 75x50 cm with 100 pcs of semi precious druzy crystal stones reflecting the famous thousands of balloon scene. This is a mix media art of acrylic color as the background, metallic silver flakes as embellishment, colorful druzy crystal stones from Indonesia as the balloons, and computer modeled resin base 3d printed house.
Really honored to be a part of 열두달 12DAL - ‘쉬는 날‘ [Day Off] music video recording last month at Seoul.
It was a fun day and interesting experience styling the artists, selecting necklace/bracelet that matches well with their outfits!
나율 Nayul & 예림 Yerim - A female vocal duo 열두달 12DAL (which means 'Twelve Months') released their first single album ‘일초하루’ [A Second] last August 8th, has returned with their new song, ’쉬는 날’ [Day Off]. Through their attractive voices, they show their delicate emotions whereby at the moment of their debut, they ranked No.1 on the internet hit list. It’s been a month and now they're coming back with their second single album, which is also a song that Nayul, one of the members, wrote herself.
The song ‘Day Off’ shows soulful and delicate R&B with simple piano sound. With their beautiful soothing voices, they portray the time when you're awake early in the morning, realize that you don’t have to wake up right away because it’s your day off, and so you can lay in bed the whole day. A relaxing song for busy people to find their inner peace.
I received their promotion album and they're both very humble to sign for me~ 😍
Please support them! 열두달 12DAL - 나율 Nayul & 예림 Yerim

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things".. - Robert Brault
Time flies... It's the third year I joined Handmade Korea Fair 핸드메이드코리아페어 and there are always, always moments to be cherished..
(read my other blogs in Handmade Korea: "IDxHKxSG" and "Together We Are One")
The leading of Korea's handicraft industry exhibition, a 4-days event which includes: paintings, craft works, hands-on experience sessions, visual arts, illustration, fashion & jewelry, raw materials and diy, took place in COEX Hall C last week from 26-29 July 2018.
As written in my previous post "Go Statement!", where I put my whole effort preparing showstopping statement pieces to be showcased for the first time, which lead to my total 40+kg of luggage, but very satisfied with the outcome! This time really thankful to Yien's and Yunhye's help, especially on the construction day. They came over to help me set up the booth, otherwise I seriously can't do it all by myself! 고마워용~❤
Very humble to say people gives positive feedback to my creations. Confidence level goes up up up! =D
My gratitude also goes to friends whom I knew years ago, came over to give their biggest support, brought me foods and drinks, some even bought my items. There's that inexplicable feeling of reuniting with other artists no matter they're local or overseas, in which we can exchange information about anything related to our biz. One of the precious relationship I made is with Luvinball sisters who make glass ball jewelry. Both of them came over to meet me, and for my surprise, not only they prepared a nice lunch and coffee, but also treated my booth as theirs, suggested how they felt could look better, helped me to sell and explained my creations to the local customers. For them it's a small gesture, but for me, it makes a big impact..
Apart from local Korean, there are the biggest Indonesia pavilion, artists from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, China, Iran, France, Spain, Nepal and many more with the total of 500 booths. How I hoped I have more time to spend here, strolling each stand... Too many great artists with superb details in their works!
Thank you very much Handmade Korea 이수내 이사님 and 이대복 대표님 for your kind support!
The next day after the event has ended, the organizer very kindly organized a special tour for overseas member. We had diy experiece class at Ssamziegil, Korean traditional food making, bojagi Korean traditional wrapping cloth session and hanbok experience with Hyojae 성생님, a traditional clothing artist (aka Korea's Martha Stewart). Thank you 핸드메이드코리아 for this fun schedule, and also very 수고했어요 Effy Jimin Jung!
For this special 10th edition of Handmade Korea Fair, they prepared a theme song that is being played every morning and evening. Hit play!
Until next year Handmade Korea...

Hi! I’m Cindy, one woman show behind all things at Tree Craft Diary, based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It’s been a while since I introduced myself, so with the recent new followers on IG I figured now is a good time! I am self-taught in jewelry designing. My degree is Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Design. Because of my passion towards handmade and crafty things since I was young, I started this handcrafted jewelry biz 6 years ago. I source all gems and crystals and make each piece with my own two hands, take every photo, write all of the descriptions, respond to your DMs and comments, take and prepare your orders, the list goes on and on. It’s a lot for one person to do but I enjoy every bit of it!
I opened and listed my very first items on Etsy in 2012, got my first sale three months after. That afternoon was my first time dropping a package to post office to ship the order to my first customer at Michigan, United States.
*Feel free to read more about Story Before Tree Craft Diary.
Like the branches of a lush tree, inspiration never comes to end. I keep growing and designing unique style of jewelry and accessories in contemporary way. Once every few months, I hunt for intriguing findings over the world to add fresh sparks to our latest line.
Most of the creations are one-of-a-kind or made in limited pieces. I believe the unusual beauties speak for themselves. No matter how simple a bracelet is made or how a statement necklace is crafted, by pairing them with your outfit, they will utterly double up your style!

On my trip to Salzburg, I went to Haus der Natur, one of the top attractions in the city. The museum presents nature at its most exciting: from fascinating underwater worlds in the aquarium to extraterrestrial experiences in the outer space hall, from colossal dinosaurs from a bygone age to a journey into the human body. Another highlight is this treasure room: magnificent precious and semi-precious stones in their natural crystal form are organized neatly on display.
Here we are at the last stop of my journey: Budapest - the capital and the most populous city of Hungary. After 10 days of traveling from Prague, Salzburg and Vienna, I decided to explore this city at a slow pace for the remaining 6 days...
Buda Castle Disctrict
I took public bus up to Castle Hill and wandered around the district on foot. Two of the must-visit tourist attractions are Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion, which are just side by side. There are many cafés (Starbucks as well) and restaurants to stop for some refreshment. I loved checking out some Hungarian art and design shops, and also went in the Hungarian National Gallery before going down to cross the Chain Bridge back to the Pest side.
Leaving Salzburg, I took Westbahn train to the capital city of Austria - Vienna. However, I'll do a quick recap for Vienna trip since I only have 2 short days to explore this artistic city (which I regret, should have added another day here!). Same as in the previous two cities, I bought Vienna Pass which gives us free entry to over 60 top attractions. I had a tight schedule for such limited time, so I decided to chose these places for my first time visit: Schönbrunn Palace, Belvedere, Leopold Museum, Time Travel Vienna, Sisi Museum, Albertina, House of Music, and Natural History Museum Vienna. Btw, it's getting hot in Vienna near the last week of May... ☀️
Schönbrunn Palace and its surrounding
Schönbrunn Palace was the former summer residence of the Habsburgs. To be honest, I never fond of history, but listening to the audio guide while touring through each room at the palace makes me curious about the story of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth.
Not only the palace, there are other sightseeing around this area as well, such as: Apple Strudel Show, Imperial Carriage Museum, Children's Museum, Marionetten Theater, Maze & Labyrinth, Gloriette, Schonbrunner Gardens, Desert House, Zoo Vienna, etc, etc...
From Prague, I took a train to Salzburg and fell in love with this city from the first time I arrived the station. Salzburg is widely known as the City of Mozart & The Sound of Music, where every gift shop offers souvenirs that relate to both icons. I had two full days to feel Salzburg, and here are some hot places that I went: Mirabell Palace, Mozart's Birthplace, Mozart's Residence, Mozart Statue, DomQuartier Salzburg, Hohensalzburg Fortress, Hellbrunn Palace and Trick Fountains, Folklore Museum, Museum of Modern Art - Mönchsberg, and Museum of Nature and Technology.
Mirabell Palace & Mirabell Gardens (Schloss Mirabell & Mirabellgarten)
Mirabell Gardens is one of the most important shooting locations from the famous Hollywood musical movie “The Sound of Music”.
There is a Chinese idiom "休息是為了走更長的路" which means: "Taking a break is for accomplishing a longer journey".. 💃💃
So this year as well, I took a two-week solo holiday went to 4 beautiful cities in Europe: Prague - Salzburg - Vienna - Budapest 🛫
Let's discover my first stop: Prague - the capital and the largest city in Czech Republic. Once I arrived at the airport, I purchased a 3 Days Prague Card. It is a sightseeing pass which gives you an outstanding way to explore everything the city has to offer with free entry to major attractions. Because of jet lag, I woke up early the next morning and started exploring the city center. I hop on the free bus city tour and went up to Prague Castle.
Prague Castle and its surrounding
One of must-visit places in Prague is of course... the castle! I got my ticket which includes St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, St. George's Basilica, Golden Lane (my favorite!), Daliborka Tower, and a nice view overlooking Prague city. After spending the whole afternoon strolling around castle area, I walked down to Charles Bridge (Karlův most), the famous historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague. It was a pouring day, yet beautiful views on both sides the bridge are still mesmerizing!
It's been 2 years since the last time we joined market fair in Jakarta... THIS WEEK! We'll be joining Jakarta International Jewellery Fair.
Venue: Jakarta Convention Center, Indonesia
Date: 19 - 22 April 2018 (Thu-Sun)
Booth: Assembly Hall, No.B12H
I will try to bring all jewelry designs that currently in stock, and some you might never seen! If you're in Jakarta, do spare a day to come and visit our booth! See you there~

Venue: Jakarta Convention Center, Indonesia
Date: 25 - 29 April 2018 (Wed-Sun)
Booth: Main Lobby, No.62
Since it is an art and craft fair, we prepare something extraordinary!
Remember my earlier posts in IG regarding our collaboration in making geometric glass decor with Innovative Art? So we decided to make this project as a DIY for you, and only available at INACRAFT! You will be able to choose the type of container you like (we prepared 8 kinds of geometric & glasses), sands, stone chips, and corn husk flowers. With over 40 types of selection to choose, I'm sure this gonna be super fun! You can bring home your materials and do it in your free time, or craft it at the spot! How fun is that! We call this project: "DIY MINI GARDEN".
So few days ago we're making some samples and prepared all the necessary tools to make... 💃🏻🛠️💃🏻🛠️
Curious about this Mini Garden? Follow our Instagram @treecraftdiary and stay tune for our daily posts ^^
Not only DIY Mini Garden, I also prepare a lot, A LOT of new gemstone bagcharms/keychains with special price! So do spend a day or two to come and visit our booth!
Marking the 6th anniversary of Tree Craft Diary, we moved to a brand new studio!
I still remember when I first started Tree Craft Diary in Singapore 6 years ago, all equipment fitly stored in just one small toolbox. Six months later, I moved back to Jakarta and the table in my bedroom was my working desk. Things got so packed that a year and a half after, I moved to a shared office room and began nesting happily there, working day and night. Year after year, my inventories getting larger and clearly the space is (again) getting smaller. My working desk barely had enough space to breath... 😅
Until a month ago, after returning from material hunting which apparently a lot more new stuff coming in... I thought hey I think it's time for a larger space! Luckily there is an empty room in the house that I can use. So I planned the room layout, picked wall paint colors, went to IKEA back and forth, and with some help from my parents, Tree Craft Diary brand new studio is now ready for action! Yuhuuuuu!!!
I am pretty sure I'll get more creative and inspiration working here! XD
A part of raw stone & crystal collection from all over the world which been collected for nearly 6 years

So what do you think of Tree Craft Diary studio? =D
We'd love to see some snaps of you with our jewelry
We hope you'll post them on Instagram, tag @treecraftdiary with hashtag #StyleWithGems
We oftentimes share it on our own feed :)
P.S. Can't wait to see how you'd style them with!
🤩 I am beyond happy these days!!! So fortunate to meet Thunder 천둥 few days ago at CGV Slipi Jaya back door with Caitlin when they're promoting their latest movie: Forever Holiday in Bali. Not only shined in becoming multi-talented Korean idol as a singer, dancer and actor, Thunder is so cute and handsome, he smiles all the time! 😊😊😊 My hands were trembling when I helped him to wear my handmade bracelet as a gift.. ㅋㅋ (look at his wrist! 😆) I gave him a Scott Bracelet (Tiger’s Eye and genuine leather combination), hope you’ll like it and wear it often to bring you luck and prosperity. For her sister Sandara, I give one-of-a-kind druzy crystal necklace as a gift, let’s hope she likes it! 🎁❤️ Thank you Thunder for being a kind messenger. We wish you have a great time in Indonesia, and can’t wait for the release of your new works!
Caitlin Halderman is soooo pretty and beautiful and super nice! Really! Before entering the cinema to watch this movie the second time (yes, I've watched it twice in a week!), I reached her at the back door and handed out my gift, a special druzy crystal necklace that I prepared earlier. She's so adorable, happily accept my gift and thanking me like so many times. Thanks Cait, you made my day! 🌞 Needless to say that her acting in the movie is great and so natural. I hope you take lots of rest and get well soon though!
P.S. We’re wearing matchy clothes! Aha! 😆
It’s their last roadshow in Jakarta promoting Forever Holiday In Bali presented by Sonamu Films, the first Indonesia-Korea collaboration movie. It’s a fun love story, where scenes were taken in Bali (yes lots of beaches with cliffs, white sands, trees.. hehe) which seriously makes me want to go to Bali for holiday! Please watch our local-made movie and give your best support to the actors, actress and production team who had worked hard all this time. Making a movie apparently is not easy.
As most of my friends know, I am very enthusiastic and excited about this kind of multinational collaboration, hoping there will be many more to come! I do wish that my works can take part in such project, whether in drama, movie, or magazine. That’s my dream and yes I dare to dream! 💪
So for stylists, if you need fresh idea for accessories and jewelry, or design-related, please reach me and let’s work together! 😉
Tonight would be the first FULL MOON in 2018 🌕
Crystals have the ability absorb and hold unique energies, both positive and negative. So its important to cleanse them often and the full moon is the perfect time to do this. When we say "cleanse" in this context, it's on a energetic level, not just cleaning the dust off them. Many people believe that the full moon can clear a crystal's energy and recharge the positive energies it holds.
On the full moon, set your crystals outdoors or on a windowsill where it will be bathed in moonlight, and leave them out until morning. The moon cycle is a great regular reminder to keep your stones neat and tidy. Approximate time: 8-12 hours.
I'm sure you have lots of questions about cleansing and re-tuning your crystals with full moon energy. Why you don't check this complete guide from Crystal Guidance. Other than full moon, there are also many other ways to cleanse the crystals. Check this post to find out more, as well as the list of crystals that don't need cleansing, crystals that don't like water and sunlight.
P.S. Here's my Crystals Love Moonlight blog post recapping from Crystal Guidance.
Every the end of the year, I always look forward to Pantone to release their official color for the upcoming year. (Here is the post introducing our creations inspired from Color of the Year 2017). Now let's take a peek at Pantone Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet
A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.
Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own. Source: Pantone
Cosmic Sky Bracelet is designed with Charoite tumbled stones in enigmatic blue-based purple hue that evokes the inventive spirit and imaginative thinking. The infinite symbol and dimensional star charm are connected to mimic the exploration of greater galaxy. Bracelet is in stainless steel fancy box chain with lobster clasp closure.
P.S. Charoite is the “Stone of Transformation”. Use it to transform negative emotions such as anger and fear into positive feelings. As part of the transformation process it allows release of those negative emotions. It is also a stone of inspiration, bringing enhanced creativity, spiritual growth, and showing new possibilities even in old situations.
We only have several pieces left! Grab it fast to collect this Pantone inspired jewelry collection made of real gemstones.
Few days after Pinkoi Market, journey continued to Pop Up Asia. Remember my post last year that I shared about the first year of PUA? This year I decided to join in their second year, which is bigger and more activities like workshops and international forums.
In 松山文創園區 Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, 亞洲手創展 Pop Up Asia officially started with the opening of 최루시아 Lucia's performance with her calligraphy moves. In front of a group of media and audience, she wrote the word: "POP UP ASIA". Below is the rehearsal video a night before. I did Instastory that day but forgot to save the video (sorry.. >.<).
Mighty Lucia performed two times that day! Another one was at the opening night party, in the evening right after we called the day. This time she wrote: "손으로 만드는 세상", which means: Handmade World.
Lucia and I shared the same booth in warehouse #3, while our other friends set up booths in separate warehouse next to us. There are many familiar brands attending this year as well: 木梁作 Muliangzuo - the art of wood & metal fusion, DoDo 手作 - animal drawn ceramic dishes, 匠子設計 ChanZ Studio - marble home decor, 小房子裝可愛手作村 BJ Art Village - mini houses pottery, 右手超人 Yohand - cute illustrations, 麥戈 Magger - from and for bulldog lovers, Spruce Artistry - indigo style hand-dyed fabric, 날닭 Naldak - all about chicken, Hanaduri - handmade soap, Haeiz Mundle - pattern maker, 책짓기 Chaekjitgi - pop-up book artists (our good friends!), Luvinball - magical snowball jewelry, Liunic On Things - illustrations for the connoisseurs of cute (the only other brand from Indonesia) , and many more local and international brands from Asian countries.
Although I've expressed my gratitude several times in Facebook and Instagram, but still, I'd like to thank my friends who helped me during four days in Pop Up Asia..
Thanks to Ben for lending me your super pro LED light! Without you my booth will be very dark!
Thanks to Choe In-ho for coming all your way from Korea to support us
Thanks to 이제 for lending me your big mirror, dried flowers, chairs, and bought super nice lunch!
Thanks to 維尼 for your pineapple cakes. Yumm..
Thanks to Yaching for coming from Keelung to meet me (*hug)
Thanks to 책짓기 윤혜 for your fruits, 우리 for joining my workshop, and 오인 for buying a bracelet from me. Love y'all! ❤️
Very happy to meet Mickey Huang 黃子佼大哥, a famous Taiwanese TV host, comedian, actor and entrepreneur. My name was called three times! Haha! XD
I also did some workshops, teaching how to make necklace and bracelet with their own selection of stones and materials. I then suggested the design and guided each student how to make it into final pieces. Attendees are from Macau, Malaysia, Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. It was fun! 🤩
Our days won't be complete without having dinner together! We surely get together every night, keep smiling and laughing even for the simplest thing, because happiness is handmade. 😊
We make handmade, give handmade, buy handmade, live handmade #讓喜歡的事成為生活
Thank you Pop Up Asia! Till we meet again! ^^
It's been 3 weeks since I joined Pinkoi Market 品品市集・台北聖誕站 in Taiwan, and it is one of the best experiences I have!
Let me start from a night before the main event. We're honored to visit Pinkoi HQ and met many new friends, local and overseas artists and brands. We briefly introduced ourselves and our products, and played games prepared by Pinkoi team. It was a very interesting moment especially for overseas artists like me, getting to know each other and jump into the mood since most of us were just arrived Taipei.
Next day, I arrived pretty early to Huashan Creative Park 華山文創園區 where this 2-days event took place to set up the booth. The hall was decked with crafty decors and Christmas-y banners since it's a Xmas edition market. Over 120+ booths neatly spread in rows. Moreover, there were also live paintings and variety of workshops.
Look at everyone's preparing their best before the gate opened for public! XD
And here comes the most interesting part.. The crowd was massive! Long queue surrounding the hall had begun before the market started. Even though it was raining the whole day on both days, but seriously, the queue never ends, and needless to say that the crowd inside the hall was crazy. Really glad to see everyone supporting handmade artists!
Below is the conversation I had with Wendy, Studio Cewemic from Hong Kong who makes cute ceramic decoration products. Her booth was at the first front row, while mine was far at the back. It proves how amazing Pinkoi Market is! ^^
We're preparing our best, going to Taiwan to participate in two international-scale handmade markets in Taipei! So excited to meet friendly Taiwan citizen over the next two weeks!

In this diary I'm going to write a quick recap of my Seoul trip in autumn 2017 for my personal record, but of course, you are very welcome to read through and enjoy every pic of them!
Seoul Fashion Week
It was a bright Saturday and also the last day of 18S/S Seoul Fashion Week, which is held two times a year in DDP. The venue was packed with people, Korean, foreigners and visitors, always crowded, but it's interesting to feel the vibe and see all well-dressed fashionistas gathered, and photographers hunted for perfect model shots. 📸 This was my third times visiting Seoul Fashion Week and never get bored to see what's new in the world of fashion.
Not far from Seoul, Lucia and I went to Paju 파주 by bus and it only takes about 40 minutes. Paju Book City is a cultural complex entirely devoted to the creation, publication, merchandising and sales of Korean books. See how amazing with the number of books they have!
After that, we went to Heyri Art Valley 헤이리 예술마을. Korean artists of various field of work such as writers, painters, actors, architects and musicians constructed the cultural town of Heyri. Within this community, there are residences, workrooms, art galleries and museums. Paju is also a popular filming location for a number of K-dramas, music videos and movies. In fact, there was a drama shooting going on in a coffee shop when we were strolling around the village.
White Table Art Fair
Our friend, Mr. Jang Hyeong Sun 장형순 just released a new book "Arus on the Hill" 언덕위의아루스. He is a paper model artist with numerous years of experience. I see a child with full of great imagination inside Mr. Jang that allows him to create the strong character of Arus. During 10 days, he exhibits his works in a pop up show - White Table Art Fair, along with other beautiful creations of Korean artists.
Other artist's works that caught my eyes are the photo gallery showcased by Mr. Kim Dae Nam 김대남, a Korean photographer whom 6 years ago came to Yogyakarta and took over 100+ pictures of "Pos Kamling". He said: "There is no such post in Korea, it is something different yet interesting". He even filed up the history and origin of Pos Kamling. At the other day, we visited his gallery in Bang Bae, and when I listened to his story about his trip to Indonesia, I know he loves Indonesia people and our culture.
Ilsan Lake Park
Autumn in Ilsan Lake Park 일산호수공원 is really amazing! 🍁🌾🍂 It was a super windy day when I arrived in the late afternoon. There is a small size Rose Garden as part of the park (big size is in Million Rose Blossom Garden in Bucheon), so I took the advantage of these beautiful roses and did a mini collection shot for these new druzy necklaces. Love how the colors match each other!
Stone 303 Studio
Was just intended to visit and take a look at friend's studio in Gangnam area, Choi In-ho 최인호 from Stone 303 who is a professional scene & stage photographer, ended up I have some new prof pics to choose now haha! 😆 I surely had a great time in your studio!
I think autumn is the best time to travel to South Korea. The above slideshow explains it all!
Together with my artist friends Ahn Yun-hye 안윤혜 & Yun Sang-ji 윤상지, we went for a one full day healing tour to Damyang 담양. We booked a bus tour departed from Seoul and took us nearly 4 hours to Damyang. Here are the 3 major tourist sites that we visited, plus that yummy Tteokgalbi lunch! ㅋㅋ
1. Metasequoia Forest 메타세콰이어 숲 길
2. Bamboo Forest 죽녹원
3. Gangcheonsan County Park 순창 강천산
Seriously incredible to see the trees and leaves in autumn color hue! 🌳🍂🍁
Hello and welcome!
