My younger sister turned 21 on the 12th of March. How time flies.. I thought I just celebrated my own 21st, haha. It's always nice to be young, but I'm truly glad and thankful to be where I am right now, despite being of a "marriageable old age of 25" (lovingly quoted by my pretty 20 year old friend, Simone, haha). Sometimes when we look back, especially at the difficult obstacles that we had to breakthrough from, it's always amazing to see how far we have come and how much we have learned.
" Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds. Because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1:2-4

What a nice cold snugly Sunday morning :)
I will be with the one I love,
with unveiled face I'll see Him.
There my soul, will be satisfied,
soon and very soon.
It has been a great and amazing journey. Looking back, I can really see how far God has brought me, and how His love never fails, never ceases. Of course, there are times when stumbles become inevitable, but God promised to uphold us with His righteous right hand. How amazing is that? There is no need to fear, all we need to do is to trust wholeheartedly and have faith.
'So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.' Isaiah 41:10
Alright, gewwybeans promises more updates! :D

Cause the pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming!
I think it's truly amazing how even when people and things might fail you, and how your world might feel like it crumbled completely, and how the feeling of betrayal can be so strong, you know all will be alright because there's someone who loved you since the very first day. :)
ps: christmas updates coming real soon!!! :D

it's really amazing how time flies so duper quickly! We're almost, almost nearing the end of April. (WHERE DID ALL THE TIME GO??) I'm feeling a little guilty too, because I haven't been coming up with new ideas/designs for gewwybeans lately.. apart from the Easter designs. But that's just a reuse from last year's. However, I'm quite excited about this new batch of new illustrations for Noah's Ark CARES. I'll be making pouches and cards with the illustrations and selling them at the upcoming dog travaganza at west coast park on the 28th! 100% of the sales the will go to Noah's Ark! :) xj and I are quite excited!!
|sneak peek at our illustrations for Noah's Ark :)|
|Finally silkscreened 'distant relatives' onto totebags|
They can be found at Dulcetfig for now!
Alright, back to school/work! We'll be coming up with new cards soon, so stay tuned! haha
Have a great week!

Happy April everyone! :D
How time flies (it's crazy really!)
And to welcome a brand new month, we'll be giving away a handmade pouch!
What's so special about this pouch is that it was made specially for Scarlet Carlson's first anniversary event, thus the vintage compass illustration. We won't be making any more of these once it gets sold out! :)
(pouch measures approximately 5 x 7.5 inches, has a black zipper and is made of 100% cotton calico cloth. Original illustration is water proof and protected with fabric varnish)
All you need to do to take part in this giveaway is to just "like" and "share" the pouch's picture on gewwybeans' facebook!
Good luck and have fun!
Have a great new month!!

oh hello :]
At times like these when I'm initiating an attempt to do a blog post, it's really because I have a lot of things I need to do, but don't want to do, not right now anyway. Okay who am I kidding, I will never want to do it. Talking about a method called forced studying. Yep, I really need to head back to the books/papers/lousy notes.
Sorry for the lack of updates at gewwybeans! We (xj and I) just have been way too busy with work/school/birthdays. Right now, I'll try my best to restock as much as I can at the consignment places (cat socrates & dulcetfig). Easter bunny pouches coming real soon! Oh! we have a new partial consignment stockist now at http://iscrewedyourboyfriend.com. Don't worry, the talented Winnie didn't do anything frowned upon of that sort, and hey, it caught your attention didn't it? :>
blogpost attempt accomplished!
Have a great great week! :)

Today, the boss of gewwybeans turns 7! yayy!! :]
This little timid, naughty and extremely silly doggie has given us much joy and laughter for the past 7 years, I still can't believe she is already 7, how time flies! Here's to xj, the best doggie I have ever known. :D
7 years ago
xj with her siblings. Lovingly taken care of by their owner who is coincidentally named grace too. But because she already had a few dogs, she had to give the puppies away. :(
hullo, I was initially referred to as "pui pui" (fatty).
alright, back to work, have a great new week! :)

some peeks to liven up the gewwy blog :]
a big BIG happy CNY to all! It feels like just yesterday, when we bided goodbye to 2011, and now it's almost February. The next thing we know, it'll be christmas again! yay! I love Christmas. :>
I don't know if I should feel extra special because this is supposed to be "my" year, having being born in the year of the Dragon and all. So far, I feel ... okay. I guess no one gives a hoot about this, haha!
I've been so slow and lazy lately, it's really time to come out with something new for gewwybeans! We might be having another arty market booth next month (Maad was quite a disappointment, but still a good experience nonetheless!), and I promise promise PROMISE to come up with new goodies!
Back to a bad headache and tired eyes now. :(
Happy New Year!!!
