hi everyone, long time no chat-no blog! i have been in a resting and nesting mode since my last post. i think it was more than a month ago--that looks like forever ago. i have missed you alot, guys. i did not even consider writing again but i believe that my experiences and lessons i learned when i was silent here was too good not to share...hang on for my next post!
thanks for dropping by...have a blessed Sunday afternoon everyone!
once in a while i like to explore other ways to craft...but i am hesitant because i think sometimes i can't do a good job like the others however the process is exciting and so much fun. these past weeks i have not been very active here and kind of lay off some of the blogs that i forever read..but you know what i am so thrilled that i found a lot of new blogs that are quite lovely to be my inspiration. this first blog i stumbled upon while i was searching some eclectic home ideas on Google, she is Ms Tamar of Nest Decorating. it is such an honor to see her colorful and very artistic blog. oh Ms Tamar, i think i can live inside your eclectic home. oh by the way, you might want to check her shop, im sure you will also fall in love with her jewellery. *wink*
i just started journaling last week. my hubby and i agreed that we would spend time more in our spiritual disciplines which is our DQT or Daily Quiet Time with God. it involves praying and daily reading and studying of His Word. so i thought maybe i can incorporate my love for journaling even though i just really had began making it. so i came across this blog. it is definitely worth reading and following. i found Ms Moss' blog Dispatch From LA recently out of my eclectic home ideas search on google. warning this blog will really make you fall in love with little details of journaling. i am very much happy that i came across her blog one time. when you have time make sure you visit her blog and learn from her different styles in journaling.
anyways, i would love to show what i have accomplished so far in my journal.
thanks for dropping by...have a great rainy afternoon everyone!
summer is here! most of the people can't wait---i still love spring because i easily get over heated when the sun is scorching hot in the summer. this season's DIY projects are so popular for moms because they have more time with their little pumpkins and munchkins. school is out. time to let them sleep in. and lots and lots of fun time!
we don't have any kids yet so my schedule is kind of open for anything specially crafting. i love collecting craft, home decor, DIY magazines and here you go this Japanese washi tapes are so in! (: they are patterned masking tapes that are so pretty like fabric with different designs and color.
i thought it's just a simple tape. however, i found many uses of it. oh dear, i think i am really getting behind all these craftiness!
talking about a comeback? yes i am definitely PRESENT in the cyber world tonight. 3 YESES! (: i am going to use this opportunity to thank you all for supporting my blog no matter what. i have just finished throwing a party for my loving hubby last Sunday. it went well though we have a couple of showers that time. the food is good. i think the guests are happy and sustained! *wink* guess what birthday parties are getting more fun and exciting. i couldn't get any excited whenever i plan and prepare. at first i have the theme of circus. after a day i wanted Robot. then finally, i ended up with carnival. so the food were not so heavy but enough to make everybody still sing a happy birthday! KUDOS!
thank God also that i have talked to some friends that will be involved in my online shop. 2 girls that make up for my model and make-up artist. isn't that lovely? (: hubby and i went to Hobby Lobby and got my dress form of course for the shop as well.
i bought a couple of new craft books also from Books-A-Million. i guess they have to give us more discount because we are quite a frequent customer lately. congrats to hubby, he got himself a Nook Book. i am happy for him. he was dreaming of it, talking about it and now enjoying the techy gadget. you can read all the Tom Swift you want, honey! (:
our cat Jolly spent 2 days in the cage of our neighbor for they trapped him because they are just not cat lovers and somehow Jolly ended up killing four of their birds. boy, the first time i cried so much over a cat. i felt like the whole world crushed over me. i think i cried like that when i first got heartbroken. imagine that? hubby and my parents told me not to retaliate but just pray and exercise more patience. you know what? our neighbor knocked and they said they want to give back Jolly to me with a condition that i will not let Jolly and my other two cats roam their yard. sad but happy you got it? i broke down in tears when i got my cat because i missed him so much. i thought i would not be able to get him back from them.
my sister is already processing her passport. i really hope Lord willing that she and my parents can visit me here. i am so bored sometimes. i believe they will make a change in my lonely face sometimes. also i would love to go to church with them and sing too with them if we have time. that would be something to look forward to.
i got the package from my mom. and again it's small but full-packed with goodies. more supplies for my small accessories business and some food too!
truly, if we count our blessing and start counting them one by one---we are going to run out of time. it's because we can't out give GOD. He is the Only Source of our blessings. not to mention not only materially but spiritually. without Him i am nothing in this world and perhaps will not be able to come back to you all here.
i am quite busy being MIA lol! these days i sometimes don't have the energy to blog because i am currently working on some of the jewelry orders i have. i don't know if i have mentioned to you a while ago on one of my posts that i am planning on opening my online shop yes STILL in the process though because this girl couldn't afford to have a brick and mortar one! so for the goodies i have finished currently, i have some snapshots of them (: feel free to look and if something tickles your fancy you can post a comment below or email me about the pricing and shipping...enjoy! (:
however the trends now in accessories and fashion jewelries are bold and vintage inspired, i try to make a special style of my own mixed with some shabby chic feel on them. i am also not going to compromise my faith. it will still promote decency and purity because i believe that in everything i do, i do it for the glory of my Lord Jesus Christ. He gave me this talent so i want to give back the glory due Him (:
thanks again for supporting this blog and my creations.
