An Unfinished Project

An Unfinished Project

One of the things that I managed to dig up while tidying up our bedroom is this old scrapbook. I remember working on this some two or three years ago and never got the chance to finish it (read: lazy). I honestly don’t know when I’ll ever get around to finishing this project. I really … Continue reading

I designed the cover of my notebook for next year!  Technically it’s a 2013 diary … Continue reading

Snip! Snip!

With my trusty shears, I gave those tassles a trim and voila! A refashioned skirt! Wore it today. Can’t believe I’m … Continue reading

Birthday Highlights

The weekend was super special for our family as our little girl just turned three! These were the highlights from her two parties. Her school party was on Friday. I “partially” made the banner that you see there. Partially because the “Happy Birthday” sign was already made. I realized that cutting all those letters will … Continue reading

Switched!

I’ve been a loyal Blackberry user since May 2011. But two weeks ago, I’ve decided to make the switch. Not only did I switch phones, I also switched providers. It was this crazy 2 day sale that got me to switch. Nope it’s not an iPhone 5. Wouldn’t it be awesome if it were? 🙂 … Continue reading
