Hello 2018!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I would like to thank everyone who made me smile in 2017 - your support and encouragement has definitely filled my days with love and warmth. May 2018 brings you great adventures, new aspirations, lots of joy and furry kisses!

Milo would like to wish everyone a great year too! ^^

❤ Blessings, Charllotte & Milo

Happy Holiday (Feasting)!

A shoutout to an amazing friend who bakes delicious cakes (and macarons!) at Oven Artistry. If you reside in Singapore, please show these humble, passionate home bakers some support. Oven Artistry uses only the freshest and finest ingredients; think Valrhona (French) chocolate! I also love that their cakes are rich in taste but not overly sweet. If you feel I’m being bias because the baker is my friend, try it for yourself and let me know what you think. 😉 They are taking orders for their log cakes now - Chocolate Hazelnut or if you like some alcohol, try their Lychee Vodka flavour. 
You may contact Alivia at 9799 6393 or drop them a message on their FB page, www.facebook.com/ovenartistry. Remember to say my name (Charllotte) to receive a free set of postcards with my illustrations when you place your order. Hurry! Free postcards while stock last!

Please help us to spread the message too. Thank you and love you guys!
PS: I’m not getting any commission from this. I’m doing it because I love my friend and her cakes are really nice. 💜

❤ Blessings, Charllotte

Merry Christmas & Happy 2016

With Christmas just days away and 2015 almost coming to an end, I would like to sincerely thank each and everyone of you for your love and support over the year. Also because of you, I was able to contribute more to the causes I support compared to past years. I know 2016 is going to be an even more exciting year for me as plans are already underway for Dollgift, and I hope I'll continue to have you with me on this journey.

May the force be with you this Christmas and the new year ahead!!! Wooohoooo~~

❤ Blessings, Charllotte

Happy 50th, Singapore!

One of my favourite childhood memories was spending time at the iconic Dragon-shaped playground with my brother and cousins. We enjoyed playing 'catching' (police and thief), 'one leg' (hopping around with one leg) and lighting up the whole playground with candles and lanterns during Mid-Autumn Festival. Haha! Oh... those were the days!

Singapore has come a long way and I'm truly blessed to be a part of the country. I wish for Singapore's peace, harmony and prosperity always.

Have a wonderful long weekend, fellow Singaporeans!~

Sweetness Overload

I think I may suffer from overdose of love over the week for my birthday. :p

I'm not one who enjoy being the centre of attention so naturally when friends wanted to celebrate my birthday for me, I was stressed out. But knowing how much it would mean to them, I'd agreed to meet up over a simple meal. That was how I'd spent my birthday week.. simple cosy dates with my closest friends. :)

My BFF knows how much I'd missed my Nono and gave me this dachshund balloon! So cuteeee! 

And mini Nono immediately took on the role of a 'big' brother.

You've probably heard about my obsession with Angels by now. So YES, I got these for my birthday. Woohoooo~ my Angels collection is growing! :D

I'm not exaggerating when I say my heart is bursting with love. Just hours ago, I received this sweetest parcel in my mail box. 

Thank you for reminding me that I'm loved. 

My wonderful buddy, Holly from Oklahoma had sent me these sweet little ornaments. I know she made these pretty stars by herself! Her loving words of encouragement brought tears to my eyes. Thank you, buddy. :')

You know what's the most amazing part? Holly and I have never met in person. I got to know this awesome girl back in 2009 when I started Dollgift and worked on my very first blog. So we've actually 'known' each other through blogging! Over the years we'd exchanged several letters, gifts and loads of love.

Angels can appear in many forms, and I've no doubt my lovely buddy is an Earth Angel. â¤

Do you believe in Angels like we do? If you do, I'd love to hear your stories. :) 

Have a beautiful week ahead.

❤ Blessings, Rheea

Happy Easter & Mini Nono

HELLO!

We would like to wish all our Christian friends and fans, a very joyous and blessed Easter weekend! :D 

(Can you spot the imposter?)

Are you wondering how's mini Nono doing since his debut last week? I'm sure you can tell by these photos how much he's been enjoying himself; following me everywhere I go and making new friends every now and then.

 'He's behind me, isn't it?'

Thank you 2014

I was overwhelmed by all the encouraging words pouring in on my earlier post on Facebook (read about it here >> www.facebook.com/DollgiftByRheea). Thank you so much! I feel very loved. ^^

I know there are people who have been through (or are going through) tougher times than me but please keep your faith! Everything in life is temporary, we just have to learn to dance in the rain (and enjoy it!). The best part is, challenges make us stronger and wiser too. 

With this whimsical illustration, I wish all of you an adventurous and fun-filled new year. Be bold, be happy, be yourself. 

We’ll chat again in 2015. Wooohoooo~~~

❤ Blessings, Rheea & Nono

PS: I wasn't very active on Instagram in the past; sharing only work related stuffs. But I've decided to share more about my life outside of work in the coming new year. You're welcome to follow me on Instagram >> http://instagram.com/dollgiftbyrheea

Nono's Birthday & Basic Illustration Class - Lesson 6

Lesson 6 was something new and very fun! Haha. You probably heard me say the same thing every week but I really enjoyed every lesson.

For this lesson, we learned how to use references as a base to develop on (paint over). 

I created this from an image reference. Unfortunately I forgot to create a new layer before painting over it, so I don't have the original image now. :/

Exploration. Alien invasion?

Oh no! More aliens?!

Then I got bored. And changed the colour... I love my new colour!

And added this. A devilish fairy! Things start to get exciting...

Then Jimmy suggested that I put in a frozen villain. So I came out with this!

I'm pretty proud of the outcome. This must be the BEST fantasy art I'd created so far! Heh heh. What do you think? :)

If you liked what I've shared so far, do stay tuned for our lesson 7 recap next week!

Also happening last week, we celebrated Nono's 12th birthday. Since his diagnosed with mast cell tumor nearly 3 months ago, I'm glad he's still active and eating very well. There are around 8 masts all over his body at the moment; some have since reduced in size but the one at his mouth is not looking good.

We're still praying for the best and hope we'll get to celebrate his 13th, 14th, and more birthdays with him. Stay strong my boy!

❤ Blessings, Rheea


Happy birthday to me~

Happy Monday!

On Saturday, I celebrated my 32nd (opps, I mean 23rd birthday! :p). Here's a picture of me looking extremely happy with my birthday gift! :D

I must say that I have been very fortunate to have my birthday wishes coming true every year. So this year, I had wished for my dad to be well and healthy again.^^

Thank you for all your encouragement and prayers for my dad. He is still under observation in the hospital. Please continue to send him positive healing energy!

Have a beautiful week ahead.

❤ Blessings, Rheea
