One word for 2013.

Its almost the time of the year again to take stock of 2012 and moving on to 2013. 2012 didn't start very well for me. I remember those trips to the hospital, I still tremble in fear. But God is gracious, He has been my source of strength & sustainance. Walked out of that anxious episode safe & sound.

I really want to embrace 2013 with new vigour and new zest. I want to believe and claim that the new year will be a good year for me, my dear, my family & my friends. I thank God for His presence and I choose the word "strong" to be my little word for 2013. I believe that God has already given me extrordinary strength to face whatever challenges that may come.

2013, see you in a few days. (:

Embroidery hoop art.

This is my first attempt and it will not be the last. Seemingly tedious at first, but the fun never ceases, so does the satisfying feeling when it has been finished. (:
Crafting, creating, the joy never ends. I think all crafters everywhere will agree with a resounding yes. Hope your weekend has been blessed!

Long or Short?

So this question always comes back at me? Leave the hair to grow out or keep it short? Decisions, decisions.

I like that long bob in the first picture but I adore that long pony tail too. Yup, I am just indecisive like that. Haha!

Two layouts to share!

Boy oh boy, two layouts to share! Its been so long since I sat down to scrap a 12x12 and I am so happy to be able to create again! I can see the drought dying down and me being motivated again to craft with my papers & tools. How I miss these!

So here I am, finally to share what I made last 2 weeks and I do hope these simple, clean layouts would inspire you somewhat. (:

(Using mainly Crate Paper- Storyteller & Random.)
(Using mainly papers & stickers from my current favourite collection from Echo Park- Eclectic Everyday by Allison Kreft. Love the colours, the designs, the prints!)
It is truly a joy to scrap for myself, to play with whatever papers I fancy this season and allow my personal style to unfold. I think I would have to say that I am close to discovering that personal style.
What's your style and what inspires you? (: Thanks for coming by!

And finally.

Just returned from a short trip to Malacca! So much feasting, walking, sightseeing, shopping that coming back home felt unreal haha!

I will be blogging about my trip here as soon as I can get my photos sorted out and of course, after a long and dry crafting season, I finally used my favourite papers (Crate Paper) to create a 12x12 layout! Real pleased to be crafting again, albeit a little slow but I am enjoying this process of crafting for myself, without a deadline.

So keep your eyes peeled here! (: blessed night!

Overwhelmed by the love God has given me.

It was a rough week. Trying to make sense of so many things. And God struck my heart about one important thing. His heart for the underprivileged. I have yet to know the complete picture but God reminded me of why I was in the helping profession in the first place. I am driven by the injustices of this world.

Pray along with me that I may seek His will and not my own agendas. God is so good to me.

Just a thought.

Do you ever had so called friends who stick around only because they needed you for some reason then turn their backs or reveal a little true colour to know that they are not genuine in every sense? Yeah I did. And every person around me thinks they are real as day. I'm no judge I know.

But still I praise God because He has given me other loved ones and friends who watches my back and sticks around not because I have something to give but because our relationships are real.

Men will fail us but God won't. He is the same yesterday, today, forever. Amen.

To better health.



Currently obsessed with: Eating well.

Book to read: Secrets to a healthy metabolism by Maria Emmerich
& Dr. William Davis.

Goal: Incorporating real, organic food into meals.

I am not very much of a greens and fruits kind of girl and I am hooked on junk food but small steps goes a long way towards better health yeah? Very inspired by Elise Blaha on her sharing of eating fresh produce and the changes in her energy level. So here I go, small steps, big changes!

A Quick Card! (Edited)

I think I might slowly be getting back in the whole crafting thing, the creativity drought is passing by me, slowly, steadily. Taking little steps so I am really not rushing it. (:

Whipped up a quick card for a friend from Hong Kong who came by Singapore for a short visit. I made the card in less than 30 minutes. I am not really good with cards but I think this one seems decent enough. Heh.

The weekends are finally here! Trust that all of you will have an awesome one! Leaving you with a picture of the card taken by my trusty iphone. God bless!

My DT term with Scrapbook Kits with a Difference (Scrap with V) ended August 2012. It has been a year with this team and I must say, it has been one of the most meaningful time since I started scrapping. I learnt so much from the rest, made lovely friends and understood scrapbooking at a whole new level. Jules, our coordinator & owner of this scrapbook kits business has been the most kindest and patient and I am very thankful to her for giving me my first DT experience. Thank you for your sweet card & gift. It touched me so much.

I was very tempted to continue with another term but I knew that I would be anticipating some changes in my career in the next few months and I would not be able to give my fullest attention to anything else for awhile. I had to let go abeit reluctantly.

This was my last kit from the DT and it was in one of my favourites- travel theme.

prints & more.






these inspires. i think i might be a little more creative today. (:

Tuesday, July 31, 2012


Taking a short break from crafting and blogging for awhile to think about what's next for my career in the next few years. Have been thinking about it for the longest time and I think I might need a lot more concentration on this one. I promise to be back with something! P.s I bought some carving erasers so I might whip up something when inspiration comes knocking.

Tomorrow's August, a little closer to my liberation day and a little nearer to a whole new adventure (I am certain of that.)

God bless!

Pinspiration: Fashion

Some styles I am digging on Pinterest. I think I might need myself some casual blazers.




Leaving you with a quote (from Pinterest too) that speaks to me so much right now.

Celebrating 4 Yrs + Zoo Trippin'

Celebrated our 4 years at Chef Daniel's Kitchen- Good service, lovely ambience, delicious food, awesome companionship. What more can I ask for on this special day? (:

A much anticipated trip to the zoo was not dampened by the hot weather. I got to feed the goats, take pretty photos and have myself a blast watching 2 animal shows!

Altered Tin- We r 4!

We turned 4 last Friday, 22 June 2012! Of course, it is a tradition of mine to create a little something for my better half. I went for an altered gift this round using G45 papers. Just a little confession, in my almost 2 years of scrapbooking, I have never purchased G45 papers. Reason being, I was a little intimidated, I didn't quite know how to use them. I love the prints but never had the courage to do anything with it. But this year, I really wanted to overcome; to overcome whatever that scares me or makes me feel like like "I can't". And so I went and purchased and created. My first attempt doesn't seem too bad I hope. But my special person love it so that's all that matters. (:

So here's sharing some pictures of my little project:





To more overcomings and scrappy adventures! (:
