Creativity in a purpose driven life

Time for baking

Cupcakes and using my new KitchenAid Mixer. 🙂 Bought the Chrome Artisan Mixer at Mayer Warehouse sale yeaterday. To avoid being labelled as having it as a white elephant, I have to use it today to prove it's usefulness. Making a Glazing Chocolate cupcakes topped with our old skool biscuits, nolstagic!

This are my references for my baking indulgence. Happy as a contented amateau baker. Hope you have enjoyed the chilly Sunday.

the mojo keeps going

and I was hoping to embellish more of the layout no. 2, however, I guess still, with so much on hands, I did not really know which to use or where I've stuff them too. Anyway, I am in the mood of stamping, especially with my new stamps from USC. 😉

Used : AC Thickers,Sassafras Lass, SEI PP, Art Declassified stamps, USC stamps

Afternoon, Seth's swimming class at LeGenda. Kids swam in the raining day and with the rain, I think they would enjoy even more as all of them refuse to get out of the pool! HA! After the swim, the boys got together at Aiden's and started to paint... BOY! a mess did they make but still manageable while the mommies and my Olive Tree keep telling them, "don't do this, don't do that!" Isn't it defeating the purpose of them being CREATIVE!? With June's reminder, we stopped being critical and let them do what they want with the painting and stamping and finger painting. Some of the shots taken with them in their funny faces.

Not forgetting my lil' princess, today she's the cooking MAMA! 😀 Enjoying the kitchen set at KC's place.

For a wonderful week ahead, Jia You!

Woot! I’ve done a layout

and it has been months! almost half a year that a layout actually is born. Terrible me, hoarding stash and not creating much.

here's my *first encounters* for Grace

a first attempt for me to do a ribbon flower, painstakingly.

Used: Pink Paislee , Iamginisce, Sassafras Lass PP, Unity Stamps Co. KOM 03/09 and 06/09 rubber stamps, American Crafts Thickers, Making Memories Flower Patch Brads


you need to catch this 10th addition to the Disney Pixar's Creation. It's very meaningful and the dialogue is so funny.

It's a family enjoyment, apart quite a romantic movie to catch. Underlying with meaningful outlook of life. 🙂 Love this show!

How Fun to Have it in hands

the Hello Kitty Fuji Instax 25 has arrived! Ooow.. I was so inspired to snap with it and I tried a shot in office. Taken my very first virgin shot of Cindy and Bee Kee. 🙂 A bit washed out and I think the blurriness of the photo is due to my shaky hands, being hungry.. haahaha... Here are the loot. 😀

I managed to do a self portrait that turn out quite ok. Also, the colors are pretty cool (muted) and the clarity in auto exposure is acceptable. The fun part of having a Instax is the instant you can see the output of your shot which gives the refreshing feel and eagerness to view how the shot will look like. Anyway, I am now one happy woman, waiting to snap more at my sweet princess birthday party. 🙂 OOh, and I have also edited some photos of the kids, taken for the past weeks.

Long while

since I last watched a heartbreaking movie and this is one. It's so touching and the tears keep flowing...URRRGH. Watch it, for the touching moment is when you try to remember and pen down what you feel before you forget them all.

A sweet Saturday to begin with

This was my mood....

When I picked up my parcel from the post office today! Thanks, Brooke for your quick action to my lost kits and the goodies that came along. They made my day. So inspired to scrap and stamp all the lovely designs which I have been drooling for so long!

Check out my stamp kit club at Unity Stamp Company The design team lead by Angela is so talented and creative juice in abundance. Go on and sub one today! -- Post From MiPhone

NDP 2009

NDP 2009, eventful and memorable. Eventful as Grace chipped her front tooth off when she ran and fell down, face flat, hitting her mouth. Heart pain!! She cried badly and the left tooth chipped in awkward ways that resulted in a very sharp pointed tooth. Need to send her to see the dentist soon. We had quite a long wait at the Esplanade Theatre by the Bay. It was a good area where we were still able to watched the parade happenings and also catch the sea activities by the Navy and Air Force. It was Grace first NDP event and she was restless, sweaty. Despite her broken tooth, she ate quite a bit of tidbits, munching happily with her cousins. Here are some photos taken by my Olive Prince nephew and me.

More of the photoes can be view here here's a video of the finale fireworks Time to rest, had a long day teaching my god daughter in card making. Fruitful and fun... hope this week pass by smoothly and yours too.
