Yes, I know it’s getting so late – but it’s better late than never!
I have been plagued with some serious computer problems which has really slowed things down a lot for me. Hence the late arrival of the Dragon! But yes, there is still time yet!
Let’s start with the Enter The Dragon HongBao Set first:
There is still time to make some really gorgeous and unique personalized Hong Bao for this Chinese New Year! Get it now!

Enjoy and Happy New Year! May the benevolent year of the Dragon will bring you and your loved ones much joy and success!

Inspired by a couple of Pinterest finds:
1. Use an embroidery hoop to make a clock. This is such a brilliant idea!
2. The right look and colors for a clock face.
So I combined those two ideas and went on designing my own clock face, printed it on a canvas (with my Canon Pro9500 Mark II printer at home), coated it with acrylic medium for protection, and then mounted in on a 10 inches diam. embroidery hoop. The pretty clock hands are from Etsy. This clock (the large pic on the right above) is now hanging on the wall in my computer room!
Then I just to make some more… I happened to have these little circle canvases stretch over a wooden frame: one is 10 cm diam., the other is 8 cm. So they are pretty small. For these two, I used copper sheets to create the rim, held in place with several nails. The 10 cm diam. can be displayed just as is, or perched on a candle holder like a mini clock tower. It is now sitting on a shelf in our dining/living room while the 8 cm diam. one is hung on a cabinet door in my art studio.
I can’t wait to get more embroidery hoops and to design some new clock faces!
You can download the clock faces pictured above to make your own clocks if you want: just click the image above! The zipped folder contains the clock face in 8 cm diam., 10 cm diam. and 10 inches diam. – all in high resolution JPG format. Enjoy!
