Chinese New Year 2018: Malaysia Version Dog Ema

Ema (絵馬, lit. "picture-horse") are small wooden plaques, common to Japan, in which Shinto and Buddhist worshippers write prayers or wishes. The ema are left hanging up at the shrine, where the kami (spirits or gods) are believed to receive them. Typically 15 cm wide and 9 cm high, they often carry images or are shaped like animals, or symbols from the zodiac, Shinto, or the particular shrine or temple. In ancient times people would donate horses to the shrines for good favor; over time this was transferred to a wooden plaque with a picture of a horse, and later still to the various wooden plaques sold today for the same purpose. Once inscribed with a wish, Ema are hung at the shrine until they are ritually burned at special events, symbolic of the liberation of the wish from the writer.

My Malaysia version of dog ema is slightly smaller than real ema. Besides that the real ema in wood but I made it to manila card. Hope my friends will not burn the ema that I gave them. Hehe..

First, I found the silhouette of dog that I want and print it out in sticker paper. After that, stick on origami paper and cut it accordingly.

I types the words of couplets on Microsoft Word and print on red color paper.

Then, I draw the ema size that I want and cut it. I use it as reference to cut entire ema at manila card.

After that, I sticked the dog silhouette and couplets on ema.

I punch a hole on top of ema so that I can tied a string through it.

At the back of ema, I stamp using my own stamp and write some words.

Claire Organics

It all began with one mother’s maternal instinct to provide the best for her baby when it came to skincare products which urged her to learn to make her own bar soaps from breast milk. She then decided to share these natural handmade soaps with everyone else calling it Claire after her baby girl ‘Norra Claire’ which means ‘clear and pure’ in French which translates into exactly what the brand stands for.

This was my first time purchase some skin care products with Claire Organics. I like the organics products of Claire Organics. I was quite happy to see that it is free shipping for my purchases and Chinese New Year is around corner so using the discount code can make me save more 15% with purchases over RM 150.

Claire Organics did not provide payment gateway so after payment need to email to inform with attached bank slip. 

Remember that soap also has expired date so use it before expired date.

You can clearly see the ingredients inside the oil that is zero chemical so good for our skin. The ingredients mostly is from oil.I like the its smell.
