Happy Year of the Tiger!

So how did your Chinese New Year went? 

We had our reunion dinner at my place, the kids enjoyed themselves staying up late into the night and we had our favourite raw fish "Yu Sheng" at the strike of midnight to ursher in the new year. 

It had been a rough Ox year for both me and hubby cos it has taken both our dad away.  But it was also the year where Isaac and Rebekah came to bring joy and comfort to our family.

We hope this year will be a better year for all in the family!

So how did my week went?

So what have you been doing this week? Chinese New Year is round the corner and yes my week from Monday was a really busy week for me.  Although we will not be having any festive decoration at home but we will still have our reunion dinner with the whole family and lots of goodies for friends and relative who are visiting us.

So how did my week went? On Monday was chatting with July about about how beautiful her handmade journal was.  She told me it was pretty easy to do so I decide to buy the material and have her come over to my place to teach me to handmade them. 

We went to Laines followed by Art Friend and bought all the materials needed and she came over to show me how to put together a journal.  After she went home I found some lovely materials that I have bought previously to sew my bags and made up these 2 lovely journals which I will be using to journal about my son.

You can also visit her blog to see all the lovely art piece that she is creating from time to time.  Thank you  July for showing me how to handmade these lovely journal.

Yesterday I went with Endina, Alviss, my mom, Isaac and Melissa to IMM to do some last minute shopping, bought some stuff for Isaac put some of my sample stock at some of the children retail store for their consideration.  We came home and all were so tired had a afternoon nap and made some cards which are going for sale this coming March.

Today we went over to 2nd auntie place at Bedok to pick up our traditional "Nian Gao" or sticky cake which is one of my favourite will take some picture of it.  This cake is different from the rest selling in the market cos it's got lots of different nuts in it and it's really yummy.  Isaac had a fun time having cheese cakes and playing with the dogs.  Met up with my friend Fiona for lunch and gave her this little 6" x 6" journal and I am glad she likes it too!

So much for this week, will be busy preparing for the coming CNY.  Thank you for visiting my blog.  I wish everyone a very Happy n Prosperous Tiger New Year

More Cards for Sale

It's Saturday again! Next Saturday will be the eve of Chinese New Year and this year will be the year of tiger, have you done all your preparation yet? 

For us this year will be a quite CNY, the chinese customs says that we are not supposed to celebrate CNY for the first three years upon the death of a family member.  So there will not be any decorate around the household nor will there be any big celebration.  I guess for me I will spend most of my CNY holidays doing more card and maybe sew some cute purse for sale at my friend's pushcart next month.

Here is a couple more cards that I have completed.
Thank you for visiting my blog and have a wonderful weekend! :)

This is my first card for this year and is for the "Pretty In Pink" Blog Hop  .  They are giving a yummy prize to a lucky winner so if you've got the Magnolia stamps do join in the fun!

I used paper from K&Company (Carolyn Gavin), pink pokka dot ribbon and flowers to finished this card.  It's a simple card with the word "Loving life with you by my side"

The image I used is from the Magnolia range and I used copic colour pens to fill in the colours.
