Hello there! Welcome and nice to meet you! My name is Erina.
I currently live in a tropical country, Malaysia; it’s always summer all year round. Always hot, hot, HOT! (Am I complaining here?)
Fall (followed by Spring) is my favorite season. Love the colorful leaves, clear Autumn sky, crisp air and of course the cool weather. This is the season telling you to slow down and take a look at the Mother Nature how beautiful Autumn is before moving into hibernation period (i.e. winter).
Okay, enough said about the seasons. Hey, this is supposed to be about me page.

Seriously, I don’t know why I end up writing something about crafts and selling washi tapes online. I never consider myself a creative person nor do I have any background in designs. I do wish I had.
Hope you don’t feel disappointed if you are expecting some kind of professional works on this blog. I’ll share what I learn along the way.
I don’t use many professional tools although whenever I step into a craft store, I secretly wish I had all the latest gadgets such as die cutting machines, binding tool and so on. You know, isn’t it faster just to purchase all without choosing?
This little cute tape sort of found its way to me as I’d been thinking if there’s any other simple ways to craft. I’ve always been on the lookout for something light and simple to use without having too many tools especially when I don’t feel like using glue and scissors.
So, what kind of information can you find on WashiMagic Blog?
- Introduce new brands and products
- Review other products / interesting finds
- Mention about different products in journaling style plus positive quotes
- Washi tape uses and projects
- Use other things to complement alongside pretty deco tapes
- Links to our online store if you’d like to see more pictures/buy

Random facts about me
Aim to simplify things – less is more!
Life is really simple,
but we insist on making it complicated.
Yes, this is something I constantly remind myself… be able to create something simple, fast yet beautiful.
Note: Speaking of beautiful, it’s subjective. Everyone looks at things or people differently. The most important thing is that you find it beautiful.
But at the same time, I do appreciate people who can make something sophisticated and stunning.
Therefore, if you see sophisticated projects here or more tools are being used, this means we are moving on to intermediate/advanced level. 🙂
Multi passionate… wonder if this is a good thing or not?
Even though I try to simplify and minimize, I wonder if this is going to take longer to implement since I have quite a number of personal interests/hobbies but mainly on the creative side. I simply can’t imagine myself dealing with numbers only.
I dabbled a little in jewelry making, knitting, card making, scrapbooking, cross stitching, sewing and drawing. Even though they are fun to learn and do, they are also certain creative projects I can’t seem to connect all the dots.
Prefer bread & chocolate rather than cake & candy.
Bread is my main breakfast and love to see and try different types of bread. So, having a bread maker is on my latest wish list!
If I sense kind of dejected, eating chocolate helps me feel joyful again!
Want to learn another language…
It’s interesting to be able to understand and speak a different language. Although I didn’t manage to learn more about French earlier on, who knows I might pick up again later?
At the moment, I want to learn Japanese and already signed up a course on Udemy. I’ve a few Japanese magazines but all I “read” is merely those fabulous pictures and guessing the Chinese words which have different meanings!
Lastly, 2 main reasons I begin the washi tape gratitude journal due to (1) it is easy and quick to use those cute decorative tapes, and (2) write a few short sentences being grateful for all the things and people.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Hope you feel happy, relaxed and inspired when you arrive here.
Feel free to introduce yourself too. I’d love to hear from you!
