Happy Wednesday or Happy Hump day as my American friends would say :)

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas celebration! 2010 is coming to an end soon and I am very happy to say that it is a great year for me. I hope 2011 will be another great year for me and I have an exciting news to share when the new year begins :) But for now, I am sharing my very first publication in the latest issue of Paper Crafts Magazine.

Paper Crafts was kind enough to send me a copy of the issue but I was too lazy to snap a picture so I share my original card instead :) I hope you like it. Be back soon! Ta ta!

Holiday season is around the corner

Christmas is less than a week away and I am sure you are all busy preparing for it. As for me, I am very behind on making Christmas cards and I still have gifts to buy.

Today I am sharing one of the card I made for the Christmas cards class. We made four cards and this is my favorite of the bunch. It's shabby and just the style I like.

Hubby and I are getting ready to go out to have some coffee :) See you soon and have a great evening!

Random Stuff

One of the perk of working in  a scrapbook store is you get to see beautiful products everyday but there is a danger too. Damage to my pocket of course :) I had a visit from Vi yesterday and it was fun seeing her again. We chatted for a while and it somehow triggered the shopaholic in me and I bought myself some pretty stuff :) It was so funny because I never shop while working and I jokingly told Vi that next time she can only come when I have the money to! Here's a pic of the stuff I bought from Smidapaper.

My first altered project

I bought some frames from Ikea a while ago and I had no idea what to do with them until now. I altered the natural wood frame by painted a coat of acryclic paint by Making Memories. Sea Foam has to be one of my favorite color after Blush :) To achieve the worn out effect, I distressed it with tea dye ink. Then I decorated the frame with some of my favorite embellishments like the big beautiful chipboard butterfly by K&Co. Easy isn't it? I am going to alter a few more frames and probably give them to my friends :)

Happy Friday!

I should be sleeping but............

instead, I thought of pop in quickly to share with you some cards I made a while ago. Nothing fancy, just two simple cards using mostly My Mind's Eye. I admit that the Lost and Found collection has been my favorite and I feel like hoarding the paper for as long as I can. They are so glittery, so soft and so classy. I have a few projects in mind that I wish I have more time to sit down and create. I hardly even have time to update my blog. But I love my job so I am not complaining.

Last Sunday was my birthday and I spent the whole afternoon sleeping. I slept for 4 hours, mind you!  Not sure if age has anything to do with it. I used to get every excited on my birthday but as age is catching up, the excitement has die down. It feels like an ordinary day except that I get to eat what I want :) After my long nap, hubby took me out to dinner in a Chinese restaurant (they served yummy dumplings) and even bought me this laptop bag from Fossil. It has the Cath Kidston style and I love it! I used to carry the boring black laptop bag to work but I can say bye bye to it now :) Hello new bag!

Thanks for your visit and I hope you are having a great day! Hopefully I will have another project to share soon. A layout or maybe an altered frame :) See you around!

CARDS November 2010 Issue

Hello Friends!! This blog is being seriously neglected and I appologize for not updating my blog as frequent as I used to. I am trying my best to update more often from now on. I would also like to appologize for not visiting your blog. I just checked and I have over 40 blogs to comment :) It takes some time but I promise that I will leave some love on each blog I visit today. Blurfing (blog surfing), here I come!

Oh yeah...I almost forgot that I can share with you my November pubs on CARDS magazine. I hope you like them as much as I do :)

Stay tuned for more updates from me! Happy Tuesday!

Tag Along Challenge

Hello again! Smidapaper has a brand new challenge to welcome the festive season. We called it the "Tag Along" challenge. I created some vintage inspired tags for the challenge and you may visit the website for the rules. It's very simple, really. I hope you play along with us! (open to Malaysians only)

Happy Wednesday!

Update on new store

Hello friends! I can't believe it's been a week since my last post! Time is limited these days and creating is not a daily affair for me anymore. I still create for the store though but mostly are samples for the class. Working in Smidapaper is a whole new experience for me especially when dealing with customers. Some are nice, some are not but still I enjoy every moment of it. Sometimes in between work, Sheila and I will have our "crazy" talk and it makes it even more enjoyable to work here. It's my second week already and I am starting to get familiar with the routine, customers and stuff. Before I sign off, here are couple of pictures taken at the store by Sheila. Enjoy!
