Merry Merry Christmas To You!!!

I know I am three days late but still I want to wish you "Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays"! Here is a card I made almost a month ago and honestly this year I suck at making Christmas cards. I was so behind in everything! Next year, I hope to have a better planning system and make sure that I stick with it. You know me and discipline doesn't always get along well :)

So how did you celebrate your Chirstmas? As for me, besides getting sick on Christmas had been a simple and quiet celebration for us. On Christmas Eve, I brought Abby to Straits Quay for dinner and we went for a walk around the court after that. In the middle of the court, stood a huge Christmas tree decorated with gold ornaments and lights. It was such a beautiful sight and Abby seemed to enjoy it. Before we left the place, I had to snap a picture of us. Too bad this baby look dazed in the's seems hard to get a perfect picture of her these days. Oh well.

Oh, I had a spa date with my bestie on Christmas eve too. It was fun and we both had a good laugh when we had to share a bath tub Before heading to the jacuzzi pool, we managed to sneak a picture donning the

Thanks for stopping by! Great weekend ahead, peeps!

Jillibean Soup: Be Silly Be Honest Be Kind

Hello everyone!

I have a layout on Jillibean Soup blog yesterday and I am going to share it here with you. This cute and handsome boy is my nephew (from my husband's side) and I think this is the very first time I featured him here. His name is Aidan and is four this year. He is pretty close to us and is my husband's favorite nephew. When my husband is around, he will stick to him like a So when Jill challenged us to include a quote or two on our assignment, I quickly searched through Pinterest and found one that's truly described Aidan. "Be Silly, Be Honest, Be Kind". That's pretty much sums up his personality and this it's the reason why we adore him so much.

Christmas is sneaking up on us and I haven't even started my shopping yet! Gosh! So today's mission is to at least accomplish half of the shopping list....(fingers cross). Wish me luck? Lol.

Jillibean Soup: Holiday Blessing Card ♥

Hello everyone! Five more days to go before Christmas and are you ready for the holiday season? Presents wrap? Cards sent? If you answered no to all these questions then, my friend, you are not alone :)

I just love the colors from the Winter Tortellini collection by Jillibean Soup. I always love to create Christmas cards using non traditional colors especially blue and pink. When I saw the letter stickers, I immediately knew what to do with them and it was fun! If you have a lot of unused stickers and looking for a better way to use them, how about stick them on your card like you would with patterned paper. Before I go, do make sure you check out the Jillibean Soup blog for all the Christmas inspired projects that the DT had designed. They were awesome!

Jillibean Soup: Christmas Blessing

Happy Friday! It's almost 8pm and I am still in the office writing this post. What? Thanks but no thanks to the work that came pouring in at the last minute. Sigh. I almost worked my eyes out and  needed some outlet to de-stress, so I thought I would come here to share a layout made for Jillibean Soup. This photo was taken last year's Christmas when I was pregnant with little Abby. Okay, need to get back to work. Meanwhile, do visit the Jillibean Soup blog for more inspiration.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Jillibean Soup: Love The Little Things

This layout was up on the Jillibean Soup blog last week and I am sorry for posting this late! Little Abby was only 6 months old when we went for our first swim back in July. She did not show any fear for water when I dip her in the pool and she was having fun while mommy stood proud watching her from a close distance :)

Before I started this layout, I envisioned the row of sewn banners on my layout and the Grandma's Lima Bean Soup paper is just perfect. The circles on the paper make my creative process so much easier and you could do the same if you have a circle punch. Simply punch out the circles and sew them together to form a banner. Easy peasy :)

Please stop by the Jillibean Soup blog for your daily dose of inspiration!

Little Abby is 10 Months Old ♥

Our little Abby had just turned 10 months old! I was too occupied with work and craft fair for the past two months that I lost track of time and my little baby has grown so much! She made me feel great about being a mom and despite her crankiness (usually at night), I love my baby to bits. I have always enjoyed being with her and so grateful to have her in my life.
