Pretty Productive

I feel like I managed to accomplish certain things today. Perhaps it’s because Zayden Asher is recovering and he’s not as cranky as before I managed to do a layout for Scrap that Baby! and two journal pages (have yet to upload those though). I also managed to upload some stuff into my Flickr

(If I didn’t mention, I’m taking an art journal class at the moment and it’s awesome! :D)

Zayden laughed when I opened this photo to edit.

My sister returned this whole stack of DVDs I’d lent her the other day and as they were sitting around the floor (totally not back on the shelf yet), I decided to watch them. Yesteday, it was Toy Story. But he got bored after the opening scene (I actually quoted every line out loud!) Guess what today’s Pixar movie was?

My poor cover…

Just a note: I love getting (relevant) comments everywhere

On Guan’s birthday…

… he is giving himself a present—a diving trip this weekend

He turned 22 on Sunday (Yay! and oops—a late post) and we had lunch with my family at Koon Kee Restaurant & Pub and dinner with his parents at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao at Ngee Ann City.

Anyway, the weekend was spent doing up ATCs and some digital layouts (since Saturday was (inter)National Scrapbooking Day). Do check out the two layouts I made

The Great Singapore Sale (GSS) is nearing and I hope the local scrapbook store have some goodies I can get my hands on

I had almost forgotten one exciting thing! I won something at a giveaway on Michelle’s blog! So exciting! (And I was complaining about not winning anything over the weekend.)

(And I know everyone’s waiting for this moment:)

Guest Designer at ScrapTiffany!

Whoots! I’m excited After all, it’s my first time guest designing. I’m really honored that Tiffany has given me this opportunity. To be honest, this is some motivation to get me back to paper scrapping. It has been a long while!

(I know, it’s not the most recent photo of myself but I either have Guan or Zayden Asher with me in all the recent photos!)

My first layout will be up soon later on today so stay tuned…

Solo Photo Booth

So I was going through my Google Reader when I came across this awesome tutorial by Elsie and now, I really want to sew something up for Zayden Asher

I even did a sketch and I really can’t wait to start!

But I don’t have a sewing machine. Nor do I have any sewing needles/threads. And I still have to go through nice clothing that I don’t want anymore. And with the little time I have, I don’t know if I can make one any time soon

Anyway, if you’re wondering about the title, yes, I was coming to that. The original title of this post was actually “itching to do some sewing” but after I wanted to post the sketch of the plushie, I was debating taking a photo (of the sketch) with my iPhone or my digital camera or Guan’s DSLR when I rethought about it since it is really troublesome to keep uploading the photos.

And then, it struck me: Photo Booth!

And then I started playing around with the effects and had a mini-photoshoot

(I know, I should’ve stopped at “The Sketch” but it’s so fun I decided to share the rest even though I look super unglamorous.)

Okay, gotta run. He’s fussing now

Zayden

I have always wanted to…

… drum properly.

Anyway, a big “hello!” to you if you’ve popped over from Jo‘s blog. I’m sure the craftiness she has shared with you with her passion that is music-related has been truly awesome

I have never been really musically-inclined even though I could play the keyboard/piano, drums and guitar (mediocre, of course). But I have always wished I could drum a little better, I mean, I shall admit I have two left feet at times, thus, messing up the bass drum with my snare. That is why I really admire Joel (an ex-classmate who gave me a couple of drumming lessons) who could learn double paddling within a day (or was it two hours?)

Guan can drum better than me So it shall be my dream that Zayden Asher will be a drummer in future Me? Well, I shall wait a little longer until I have the time (and, perhaps, the funds?) to learn drumming again

I hope you enjoyed what I have to share Now go on and head over to Deana‘s blog to read what she has to share

On a side note, if you’re lost, feel free to head to Helen‘s blog to start the blog train as she’s the kind hostess who organized this
