This year, our kids' school was considerate enough to organise their outward bound week and ski week at the same time so I could have a kids free week! No chauffeuring or cooking different meals for different tastes for 5 days, yippee! Well my hubby still needs to eat, but he loves cooking for me after … Continue reading Kids Free Week!
I made some thank you cards for one of my customers using a water colour wash background technique. I've been dying to try it out and finally put brush to water using Stampin'Up inks and normal acrylic paints. I followed this technique by Scraps and Stamps and even though my result is nowhere as nice as hers, … Continue reading Water colour Thank you
GONG XI FA CAI! Its the first day of the Year of the Rooster and I wish you all Health, Happiness and Prosperity! We are going to friends tonight for the "Reunion" dinner that is normally celebrated among family, but as our families are so far away, our friends become our family.

When I saw this sentiment I thought immediately of my teenage daughter. Born to a Singaporean mother (me) and Spanish dad (my dear patient hubby), raised in France and now living in Germany, she somehow managed to speak and behave like an American teenager! Like what the...!!! She does attend an International school here, but her … Continue reading I, like, totally love you
I just finished a new design for my Valentine's Day shadow cards collection, and as I was creating this card, it brought back memories of the time I was in high school. It was an all girls school and we used to secretly give Valentines Day cards to girls we admired! It was always nice to receive … Continue reading Valentine’s Day is for everyone

This month, Pretty Pink Posh is collaborating with Casual Friday Stamps and we each got a pocket of pretty pink sequins to … Continue reading Calling All Sistahs Cancer Awareness
Its been awhile since I've made New Year's resolutions. I think its because I either forgot what they were to begin with, probably the day after the New Year's Eve party..., or because I didn't tell enough people what I was planning to do so I would be shamed into seeing it through! Well this year, I'm … Continue reading New Year’s Resolution
This Card was made at 2am, during the Christmas holidays. I was browsing on my phone before I went to sleep...when the urge to play with a new technique hit me! So I got right up and made this card! I was inspired by a few posts I was reading, especially the latest CAS Mix … Continue reading Watercolour Thanks
Now that my first self designed hand made shadow box cards are finally out on Etsy and DeWanda, just in time for Chinese New Year, I have a little time to "play" in a few challenges before the orders come flooding in (wishful thinking)... :). I was happy to be able to make another watercolour card with … Continue reading Watercolour shaker card
I'm finally able to blog today. I have missed it. I thought about it all through December, while I was frantically preparing orders I received for my shadow box cards, once I told people I had opened my Etsy store. I didn't expect so many orders, but I was obviously very pleased and excited. My … Continue reading Bling bling
