Dahlia Dreams at Gardens by the Bay


 


So I went to check out the Dahlia Dreams exhibition at Gardens by the Bay earlier this week. They were celebrating the Year of the Rabbit with lots of cute bunnies, dahlias and other springtime blooms! I tried my best to avoid taking photos of actual people in the shots....enjoy! *winks*










Happy weekend friends! :)

CNY 2023 - my signage in action


 


Well friends, you know my CNY signage was bound to get some action during the CNY 2023 celebrations, right? (officially ends  this Sunday) *winks*


First up is sweet niece Luna holding the CNY signage. Check out that cheeky face. :)


Lots of packaging bits used here. Can you spot them?


Of course Miffy had to make an appearance too! 


Happy Thursday friends!

When fave cousins meet


 


When my cousin came by with her husband and two boys last New Year's Eve, the older one Eli liked nephew #1 very much and declared him his "fave cousin". (Yes, you've met the younger sibling, Jon...the one who was enamoured with our laundry basket...*LOL*)


Gosh, Eli had so many things to tell his older cousin. And they spent the whole afternoon together. :)


It was lovely to watch them bond despite the age difference. And I was really surprised at how patient nephew #1 was with his younger cousin. 


As always, just a compilation of random stash put together on a layout. *winks*


Hope your week's going well friends!:)

Mixed Media Monday - Let's get back to the eye sketches


 


Did I mention that I started my daily eye sketches 2 weeks ago? Well, that was a false alarm. *LOL* I think I did 3 and stopped. Just stupid to add something to my plate that was already overflowing with life plus CNY prep. But here we are, trying again today. :)

Happy week ahead friends!

The one about Jon and the laundry basket


 


So my nephew Jon came over for a visit on New Year's Eve and found his fave "toy"! Yep, the laundry basket! *LOL*


He was adamant about pushing the laundry basket from the living room up a few steps to the dining room, making a turn and repeating the process again and again. And like most toddlers, he would get mad if anyone "helped" him. *winks*


I must say that he had pretty good motor skills for a 23 month old. He could navigate turns without hitting anyone or anything....and he was relentless in his "laundry work"!  The adults were very entertained. :)


Happy Friday friends!

Enjoy your weekend! :)

Thursday's decorated box


 


Happy Thursday friends! Meet today's decorated box!:)



I started with this lovely sturdy box from a Drunk Elephant skincare set.


I covered the five sides with patterned paper and decorated just the lid of the box.


Might have gone a little crazy with the embellishments...but did you spot the bunnies? *winks*


Hope you are having a great week so far! :)

The one about the CNY Krispy Kreme doughnuts



The other day I brought home some CNY Krispy Kreme doughnuts from my trip to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. :)


I've always enjoyed the glazed doughnuts as I found the assorted varieties to be a tad too sweet for my liking. But they had some "special" flavours for CNY so I bought some back for the family.


Mum went straight for the one with the Kit Kat bar on it! *LOL*


I was pleasantly surprised that the doughnuts were not that sweet anymore *yay* and I might just buy them again for an occasional treat when I travel (these are 3x more expensive in Singapore).



Just the usual packaging, scrap bits and stickers. So happy to use my Miffy sticker on the page. So cute, eh? This is the year I will use up my bunny/rabbit stash! *happy music plays in the background*

Happy Thursday friends! Meet today's project : a super quick decorated mini box for CNY 2023. :)


I started with this really lovely sturdy box from my recent stay at Shangri La Hotel in Kuala Lumpur (only the box made it home...the chocolates did not! *LOL*)


Isn't the bunny cute? :)

Workspace Wednesday - first two eye drawings of 2023


 


It only took me about 2 weeks or so...but I'm getting back into the daily eye sketching again. *winks*


And yes, I had to start on the most "stressful" week of the year - the week before CNY. But I think it was timely because I needed to have a bit of "me time" in the chaos of things. :)

Hope there is something interesting on your workspace today.
