Home is where you brew your coffee and sip your tea…

Aint that true :). Home is a place of relaxation. As tired as I might be, the moment, I reach home, I always feel a renewed sense of energy, as I can totally let loose and be myself and relax. Yes, home is always the best place to have a cuppa of coffee or tea 🙂

This card I made using such a cutie of a digi called Brew Your Coffee from Paper Pretties. Check out the lovely store for more stamps, digi stamps, ribbons etc.  I had a lot of fun playing with the digi, colouring it and mixed match it with burlaps and washi tape.

This card was inspired by this lovely sketch by talented Wendi over at 365cards. So make sure you come by and play with us. You stand to win 5 digi stamps

Cascais and Nazare, lovely beaches of Portugal :)

I am just getting into the swing on Project Life, whilst I may not do the conventional week by week, I am a little behind but documenting my fabulous hols to Europe, 1.5months of it… enough to scrap many, many pages of Project Life theme related :). I am sure that is fine too lol…

I am still in my first week of the trip… Portugal.

Cascais is my base, where I stayed with a friend who was attending a meeting. Cascais, a lovely beach town, half hour drive from the city of Lisbon. I did a tour to Obidos, Alcobaca, Nazare, Batalha and finally Fatima, where I stayed a night, the highlight of my trip to Portugal.

Today I share Cascais and Nazare, the two lovely beach town of Portugal 🙂

Hi peeps,

Many reasons to celebrate today 🙂

My camera busted during my holiday recently due to water condensation. Hubby and I decided, that for my crafty work, I would need a better camera… with Project Life and all … lol..

So we bought ourselves an Olympus XZ-2 semi auto/professional camera… and I so love it. I am rather a newbie at photographing, those who have been following me should know my skills set lol. So, we decided to go for a walk and take pictures this morning and ended up visiting KL Butterfly Park. Gorgeous community of butterflies.. cant get enough of them… love!

Birthday card for my teenage nephew 🙂

Hi peeps,

How time flies, we are into the second week of the new year I am still getting used to writing out cheques with 2013 :). There will be new  things that I am doing this year, personally and craftily… 🙂 and I am looking at enjoying every minute of it… after all, life is so unpredictable.. so we just gotta to make it fun and enjoy the joys of living! ♥

Today, I share with you a little card I made for my nephew whose birthday is a week away! I hope he likes this. I cant believe that he is a young teenager now and how he loves to craft with me, everytime that I come with my crafty goody bag 🙂 For Christmas, I got him ” Diary of a Wimpy kid and a little journal book, so that I hope he can start some journaling himself. Smart boy, he read the book with the week I gave him. Every minute counts when you are growing up that fast 😀

Make our own Happiness

Back to reality after my awesome holiday… one thing resonates in my heart… the feeling of joys of living as I traveled. Learning to make my own happiness daily 🙂

So this card is just for that… I / You, we can make our own happiness. I love the use of this charm – fairy riding the snail and having a wee of a time. Life is like that sometimes, the simplest things makes us the happiest and they are free. We just need to stop, take a moment to breathe in and enjoy the moment and laugh silly if need be and let all those muscles relax and let wrinkled grin brighten our face and world. What a joy!
