Monday blues

I seemed to be posting whenever i am feeling down. I do hate Mondays and school so badly. I have no idea why i have been feeling this way lately. So insecured and life feels meaningless because of what this job entails. I just wish that there was much more to look forward to. Weekends are short and weekdays are excruciating. I need to find back the old motivation i had last year.

In any case, 2 more weeks to March holidays right?

Here to chase away the Monday blues with a mini album i made using Prima Botanical collection. I am loving what i did. Strictly journal based, so that i can pen down thoughts on the new addition to our family, Beth. I made tag slots with motivational phrases or to stick polaroids to mark this new milestone. I am so proud of how i made the slots. Some slots are hidden behind the bow and all of which are filled with botanical flocked rub ons (current favourite) and prima lollipop flowers. I LOVE IT! :D

Front cover - i am loving all the Prima's metal charms which I thankfully bought a lot for more usage

the rest of the pages ...

Well, i am hoping you had a better Monday than I did. I will leave you with what i have been praying each morning as i survive the day ahead...

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.

the first of many

Oh Monday, you are gone and out! I am so glad that Monday is over! Each day seems to pass so quickly because of how busy i am at work. Mondays are simply horrid because of how long the day is for me. I need to BREATHE a little. In any case, it means 4 more days to the weekend.

I always find great joy in opening up my scraproom to friends who want to make something or do little gifts for their friends/family. This SB phenomenon is too expensive for any one timers to go to the store to buy their materials. B and J came over on Sunday and they managed to do a love journal to document their journey together. Oh what joy! It was fun seeing how they used distress inks, cut with the tonic scizzors and stamped for the first time. They were simply amazed! Haha. (:

And the craze right now for me is ...PRIMA's BOTANICAL LINE!!! Sorry if i seem to be talking randomly. The brain is offcially dead as it is almost time to sleep. Yes, i am very much in love with this line. Everything i do now has 'BOTANICAL' elements in them.

I altered a heart box that i bought from IKEA. It is one of their new releases and i am so into hearts right now. It is amazing how i go through little phases like these. But i am loving how it came out. A perfect gift for someone special. (:

Have a great Monday.
I will be back to share more stuff using the Botanical line. (:

Belated Valentine

I hope everyone had an awesome valentine day. I love the verses in 1 Cor 13 that talks about the essence of love. I know it has been overused and sometimes people take it out of context. But in the epitome of what love is, i think it is true and meaningful. I do love the last sentence especially.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. "

Love conquers all and love is shown every single day that God grants us and with that, we welcome the new addition to the family..

Beth! Loving with all our hearts, i say. We are going to adore you!

I was supposed to announce the winner yesterday but i was quite tired after my course ended. Anyway, RANDOM generator chose.....

remember when...

it was 2 years and many months ago, when kate was born. So here we are at this new chapter when the sister in law's baby no.2 is coming out anytime from now. We are praying that everything will go smoothly and a healthy baby beth will be delivered. We are going to rush down to the hospital later. (:

So here i am, trying to rush to complete my marking and to upload my lessons for the upcoming E learning day. I thought i would stop by to blog about what happened today. Its been a long time since i queued outside at our LSS, promptly waiting for the doors to open at 11am. What you may ask? Yes, I was waiting to get all the Jack and Jill CHA 2011 papers as well as their flowers and stamps. I did go totally crazy with the spending and ended up bursting my budget for the week. Quite frankly, i wish the lines werent that nice so that i didnt have to look like one crazy lunatic grabbing things one after another.

An uncontrollable moment.

What i am trying to say is that i do hope this incident doesnt happen again. i hate to think that i am a hoarder, buying lots of products but never using them. The truth is that i have learnt over these 2 years that there will always be new products coming out for each CHA so it is vital that i buy and use them. There is clearly no point in hoarding.We must start as scrapbookers, to let go of the thinking that "its pretty and i dont want to lose using it." (:

Okay enough rambling...
Here to share another layout on the Jack and Jill old series.
Title: 25 & its all about perspective.

Yes, a birthday layout to celebrate another year. Have a great weekend. I am heading off to the hospital. :D

All things Prima

It was a good CNY break and i cant believe that the celebrations are over. There isnt much to look forward too but i guess its 4 more weeks till the march holidays. (: I was sick today, was down with food poisoning and i didnt make it to school. It is a horrible feeling waking up at 3am in the morning and finding yourself puking in the toilet bowl. Yucks but thank God i feel a whole lot better now.

I am running a slight fever so i am hoping that it will go away tomorrow. In any case, i did managed to finish up a layout during the long break. i was doing bits and pieces of the layout each night, considering how tired i was from the endless visitations. But yes! I have cleared half my prima flowers lot from this layout as well as one more that i have just started doing.

Here it is - Just 4.

I have been struggling to use my Jack and Jill papers for the longest time considering how much i love that line, Omg! Okay, but it was time to use them as the next line of Jack and Jill will be in our stores soon. Motivation to buy more prima flowers, i guess. <3

And since i have been using these flowers up, i do have some spare ones that i would like to giveaway to one person!

I've included in a new pack of prima flowers, some spare big and small prima flowers, some webster flowers and some tiny daiso flowers. (: See those two butterflies there! They are included in too! Those are my current favourite and i am so glad i found them. (:

All you have to do is leave a comment and i will pick a winner on 14th feb, Valentine Day at 10pm!

Have a good week ahead. (:
