Sick days

ALL of us are SICK :(
Coughing, sneezing, tired, cranky, blah!
Not feeling encouraged to create anything.. so, here's a share from before

Hope your weeks have started out better!

Playing with cards

I don't think of myself as a cardmaker... not that I don't make enough cards for many occasions but still, don't consider it as my passion. But yesterday I was playing with my table scraps (and boy, it's spilling over
with scraps!!!) and made a few cards... here's one:

Happy Thursday :)

My very FIRST Etsy Sale

was this morning :)

THANK YOU Barbara B. This was actually her second purchase from me. She bought my "My Wish For You" kit earlier even before I set up shop at Etsy.

So, I had been busy having fun making this journal that explores my introduction to Halloween and how I grew fond of it over the years... I loaded it with various textures. Textures together with the bold colors and elegant yet whimsical elements made it my favorite instantly and I left it out on the living room coffe table :)

Then I thought about my long-neglected Etsy shop and wondered if this could be a kit. It wasn't easy to find or replicate every little element I used in my own book-the hand stamping, misting, embossing, altering, sanding, layering and cutting tiny strips of foam tape to add dimension to layered elements... all that punching and die-cutting and stamping and cutting and stitching have my wrist hurting! But I'm happy with how it turned out... every thing is handmade and ready waiting for creative hands :)

So, we can't get a dog

or a cat or any pet that has hair :(
Nini is deathly allergic to pet hair... she struggles to breathe in homes with cats!!!
But we still wanted a dog so bad, especially Om. Nini insisted on getting retested by the allergist and this time too, she said, "NO dogs!"
So, we are back to keeping fishes... glad they could have something to love and call their own...

Super quick update

My son is still sick home. I'm sick too. I dragged myself to Nini's school general meetings twice this week. Still sending school supplies, yearly fees, etc. Keeping track of these things is stressing me out somewhat. Today, I'm trying to finish up a bunch of projects at home. Creativity keeps me alive I tell ya!

Check out the CK blog for s super quick and fun tutorial and a giveaway :)

And a page...

Have a great long weekend!
