crafting at my workplace

I've been busy with my office work lately. It's been 2mth plus I've been with this new company. Very busy. For the 1st month, I felt very bored. Not many people want to help me, to guide me. It's not that they are not willing to help me but it's all because of they are very busy with their own work. It's very different environment with my previous company. I used to work at flexi hours but now, I have to get up as early as I can since i need to reach there before 8am. It's a bit far from my home too. But since I'm at opposite direction of traffic jam, then it's okay with me. To tell the truth , I'm dealing with some sort sewing stuff too. Only that this one is not for crafty thingy. We're specialized in interior part of automobiles. We sew seat leather cover for variety part of cars. From Kancil to Ferrari...these customers will send their seat cover to us in order to change the them into new comfortable leather type.
Anyway, I'm not going to explain in details on what I'm doing at my workplace.. hehehe..It's just that even during my busy time at office, I still manage to do some craft stuff at office. I became new comittee member for 5S. And one of the task is to decorate the notice board. well of course it's not the main task..the main task is actually to assist all the HOD during audit, report and etc. But anyway, back to the notice board.. I manage to use some of my crazy idea to it. And this is what happen... hihihi..

The funny thing is, because of this notice board, my GM asked me to design background for our company big banner too.'s too much for me to handle. Luckily my colleague can help me out for this part. Thanks, Dieya!

I guess, craft can happen at anywhere you go. Happy Crafting, everybody!

And i was inspired from her blog when I want to do this version of mine. Thanks a lot, Kara! The only different is I have to double the amount of fabrics.
