Today is my last day of my break and I start a new job tomorrow, 1st June. Feeling a little anxious, anxious coz my break has past me by and anxious because, I am moving back into training and development-my dream job, in a totally new industry – retail.. feeling anxious cos, I worry I have forgotten how to do it.. heheheh.. I worry too much dont I, thats why I need to craft… to take my minds off things.. hahaha! Thank God for the blessing for crafting in my life πŸ™‚ and my bloggy friends to journey with me.. for I am not alone *wink*.

I can only thank God for His grace and blessings in my life at the moment, coz I have been thru a lot, and this has been a healing journey for me… heart!

I made this card for myself, to encourage myself as I begin this new journey .. to believe in myself, in what I can do, and just be my best! :). This card is inspired by Less is More challenge.. another very simple card, just stamping and distressing. Love this sentiment stamp from Unity…and fern from pti

……. say a prayer for me, yeah, that my health is steady to endure the demands of the job and that I know how to learn to relax and let go when I need to *wink*.. many thanks!

Also to share.. some pics.. of the food I whipped up during the short break. I hardly cook but when I do, I can cook up a storm.. luckily hubby appreciates them… I shall miss cooking when I start my new job.. enjoy… yes.. I have been making western dishes.. and will share more of local dishes when I do cook them.. (will have to wait for my next cooking binge :P)

Cubed baquette drizzled in extra virgin olive oil and toasted... crunchy yums
Simple breakfast with hubby πŸ™‚ : Black pepper sausage, scrambled eggs with cheese and parsley, buttered bread and coffee πŸ™‚
Salad with cherry tomatos, dressing balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, parmesan cheese and top it off with my crunch olive toast

Some Changes…

One Layer card using Prima stamps (Jack and doggie) and Hero Arts (background)

Hi peeps,

Me posting daily huh! πŸ™‚ yeah, I am on my two weeks break. I just quit my job selling software portal about a week ago, and I took my first break back in my hometown, spending some time with my parents, family and grandma. This week is for my crafting and preparing myself for some changes … Β πŸ™‚

I will be starting a new job next month… Its in training and development, a field that I love, since I studied education and have always have passion working with people and in the area of development. I will be working in a retail line, have never worked in this industry.. so its really very new and very challenging… working days are 5 days week, occasionally 6 days, with travelling time averagely 3 hours on the road daily… So I will be busy, busy, busy and I hope to continue to be able craft to relax and enjoy it as much as I can! It will be quite a significant lifestyle change, to ensure that I am comfortable, healthy and be my best at work :).. Blogging and crafting may suffer reduced frequency, but it doesnt mean I will miss Β or enjoy it less πŸ™‚ and will continue to come by and visit you as often as I can. However, I am really excited about this job prospect :), Β feeling very blessed for this opportunity…so its fingers crossed!

Today I share with you some cards I made using Prima stamps… (I heart these little cuties:) ). Made them on trip back home last week, with basic materials that I had brought…. so its very basic and simple using Β kraft, stamping, pencil colouring, ribbons and buttons… very simple ones la! πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy them.

Prima Jill...
