Toys Craze: Ayra the DOHVINCI Designer, Making Creativity Pops!

Getting Ayra to smile for the camera is one of the toughest thing to do. But she did it willingly and so sweetly when receiving her first certificate from a teacher.

Mummy’s Amigurumi adventure

Sometime early last year, my hands were itching for some new crafty movement.
