Quote from Dr. Meridith Grey
“Maybe we're not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we're thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we're thankful for the things we'll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.”

Change is constant.

Quoted from Dr. Meredith, Grey's Anatomy

"When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again."

Heartfelt Thanks Mom

Today, is one of those moody days... and my head is aching badly... probably caused by the hot weather, probably too much thinking... just want to be alone.

Been down with a series of bad luck...
1. My laptop HD died on me. I had to redo all my work from scratch due 1st of May...
2. My favorite stamps are missing (not sure if i misplaced them or not)
3. etc...

Wish that my luck will be better soon :'(
In the midst of the chaos, I manage to find solace in crafting and created a mother's day card...

P.S. : I still need to master the technique of stamping (*Cindy Lee *hint *hint)... wobbly hands

Customised DVD Sleeves

Since Pixous started in 2009, wedding has been a big part of my life. To me, to be able to be part of a wedding, gives me so much joy... i love planning weddings, i love shooting weddings... i love how i can be creative and be a piece of that one special day.

When delivering the final product to my customers at Pixous Photography, I always try to incorporate a lil bit of crafting to my work... I'm happy that I'm given the ability to create something special for my customers; How much I have evolved as a crafter since then...

Back in 2009

Back in 2010

Check out these customised DVD sleeves made specially for two of my customers which I did recently. Most of them are not aware that our DVD sleeves are specially made for them until they receive their photos, and they are usually very happy that it's something they can treasure, rather than just a plain plastic cover...


It's all about love

It's all about love this time around. Honestly, although this project was so much work, it was all worthwhile because I had so much fun doing it! This will be a wedding gift to my friends, Tang & Grace, whose wedding is this coming saturday. I hope they will love this gift as much as I love making them...

gotta love this vintage camera stamp from Maya Road available at smidapaper

Mummy dearest's day

A really short post today...
Did some lawn mowing and gardening this morning... it's quite tiring... how i wish someone would do it for me~ but then again, i doubt i will have that luxury anytime soon... so I have to do it on my own... the result, now the garden smells like freshly cut grass... (well they are freshly cut)

and i am happy my efforts didn't go to waste... the palm tree is growing, see the sprout... :) *the plant behind isn't doing so well, hmm*

Shout out to mummy dearest, whose birthday is tomorrow, Happy Birthday! Going to have a family dinner tonight (early celebration) so i better go get ready... Here's a birthday card to share!!

Cookie layout

I took the longest time to get this layout done. All because
1. I'm always occupied with something and
2. I sort of procrastinate because my bed is like my sanctuary after a busy day... Everytime, I walked pass my room, I can't help it but to get my attention drawn to my comfy bed...There's no getting up once i'm on it...

So, yesterday i told myself not to walk to the bedroom first... :D and made my way up to my scrap area. And finally, i finished what i started...

Papers from Crate Paper Neighbourhood & Embellishments from Cosmo Cricket.

I adore everything about you!

Good Morning everyone!
It's just past midnight :) and I've just finished a layout. This week, Smidapaper stocked up loads of goodies and I can't help giving myself some shopping therapy. Using MME's Lost and Found collection, I created a layout with my pre-wedding photo. New & Pretty stuff does get me inspired. :D

Photo was taken at a train station at Taiping. One of my fave photos of all time. I just adore everything on this picture. :)

Friends who are always there for me!

Happy Thursday, my crafty Friends... How was your week?
February has definately been an emotional roller coaster for me. It was a month to reflect on love, friendship & family... I'm happy that everyone's back home for the festive season, yet sad to see them leave for home... I guess that people do come and go, even those who matter most to you... I hate to see ppl leave :'( *sob *Sob

So, I'm very much looking forward to a better March, and I hope that March will be great for you too... :D

On a happy note, I designed a card for Smidapaper, which is about friendship. Woot! My first design for Smidapaper :D

This is dedicated to all my friends and my sister who has always been there for me... MUAKS! I love all of you~

Card is available for sale at Smidapaper.

A lil bird leaving her nest

Today, my lil sister will be departing back to Hobart, Tas. My lil precious is all grown up now and will be starting her career in a new place. I'm happy that the future is bright for her, but deep down inside I will miss her so much... I will miss the hangouts with her... shopping, manicures, pillow talks...

I don't know when I can meet her in person again... Maybe next year, maybe 3 yrs later... but i truly wish her all the best in her future undertakings.

I made her a lil surprise (hopefully, something she will treasure) :

let your dreams take flight

prima flowers

The back of the frame - Cindy's PTI stamps :)
I adore PTI's sentiments...
