I know I am two days late but still, I want to wish you "Merry Chirstmas"!!! I don't have much to share today except for some Christmas presents I did for this year. It was simple, really. Simple & me = goes a long way
It took me forever to complete this layout. Well, two weeks to be exact and have no idea why it took me so long. Honestly, I don't mind the time I put in to finish a project as long as I enjoy the process. That's the true meaning of crafting, no? This layout uses a mix of patterned paper from Echo Park, My Mind's Eye and Girl Paperie (it's sad that Girl Paperie discontinued their business because I really love their products). I have been searching high and low for small clothespin and I finally found these at a local store. They doesn't come cheap but I don't mind a bit. My friend saw these picture of me and said I looked so much different compared to now. I was only 105 pounds then and have been underweight all my life. But now at 147 pounds, I have never felt better :) We'll see if I feel the same way after I delievered.....lol.
Yesterday morning I was greeted with a nice surprise. This card won the blog challenge by My Mind's Eye and I get to choose my own prize! Christmas came early this year....lol :)
December is one of my favorite months of the year with two simple reasons, one being my birthday and the other is Christmas. And today is my birthday :) Just like last year, there will be no celebration or party, just a simple dinner with my best friend. Hope to snap some pictures at the dinner tonight and if I do, I will share them here. Hope you like this card :)
As my laptop completely died on me, I took out the hard disk and temporary use it as an external hard disk until my piggy bank is filled with enough coins to get myself new laptop (hello hubby......are you readingthis??? Lol....) Luckily all the saved data are safely intact and as I browsed through my old cards the other day, I realized that I have a couple of cards that I have yet to share on my blog. So here goes. The Lost & Found collection by MME is my favorite collection ever!! No doubt. I just love everything about this collection. From the color to the design. Just everything! Are you on the same boat as me? I bet you are! :)
Lately I developed a passion for cooking. Yeah, no kidding. I enjoy cooking ever since I am pregnant and sad to admit that I lost interest in card making for a while. Not sure if it has anything to do with pregnancy hormones but I definitely cook a lot more frequent than I used to. I seldom take photos of the food I made....either too lazy or too hungry to bother. But yesterday I was in the mood to snap some photos so let me share with you what I had for breakfast and dinner. For breakfast.....baby spinach omelette & tuna cheese croissant. For dinner.....spicy olio with roast vegetables, bacon & smoked sausages. As a spicy olio fan, I had spent a lot of time perfecting my recipe and I am proud to say that I succeeded yesterday (canyou see I am grinning from ear to ear).
I love my baby bump! Yep....love it to bits! Unfortunately, I haven't gotten around to take as much pictures as I should. I only have a few nice shots taken and the rest are taken with my camera phone where you could either see my face or the bump. Not picture perfect. So thought of sharing a picture of me and my hubby taken back in October. Where have the time gone to? It feels just like yesterday we took this picture but my growing bump tell me otherwise :) Nine more weeks to go before my life completely go haywire....lol. Hope I can brave through it all and I believe that God will give me the strength I needed :) I can't wait to see our little girl! Looking at this picture, I can't believe how much weight my husband had gained over the years! He used to be very fit and muscular but all I see now is fat....lol! I still love him anyway!
This card was published in CARDS magazine back in July. I have temporary put my submission work on hold and my last submission was for October issue. I will share the October card later. You know how much I love pastel color and was surprised that this bright yellow card turned out to be one of my favorite after all. Sometimes it is good to step out of your comfort zone because you will never know what to expect. And who knows you might get a little surprise too :)
I will see you soon....hopefully with a card or a layout *wink*.
