Happy Friday friends! Just sharing what's on my desk today...Yep, overzealous with the floral painting as usual. *LOL*

Enjoy your weekend!

Decorated notebook ideas


 


So I've recently finished decorating a whole stack of notebooks to tuck into my happy mail packages. I've consolidated them into one post so that you can be inspired to create your own. :)












I've kept them relatively flat for ease of use and to facilitate efficient storage. It's great way to use up your fussy-cut elements from other projects, add texture through washi tape and interest through stickers.:)

Which is your fave?

Happy Wednesday!


 


Happy Wednesday friends! Today is my out-to-run-errands day...so here is a quick share! Hope you are having good weather on your end....it's been both sunny and rainy every day...which I'm not too mad about ...as long as the sunny part is when I'm out and the rainy part is when I'm home. *LOL*

The one about my European gifts


 


Not sure about you but my family scrapbook albums over the last 2.5 years has been mostly on food and stuff. Because we haven't been out much and also because nobody looks good in a mask....*LOL*


Anyway, just wanted to document my European gifts from my sister on this layout. And also how long I waited for my barista (aka sister) to make me a coffee after she got back from her trip. (She took a course on hand-poured coffee...and bought a ton of coffee equipment).:)


Yep...cute pig makes another appearance! *winks*


Lots of scrap bits in vibrant colours. :)

Workspace Monday - what I'm currently working on


 


Happy Monday friends! I have been on a floral kick since Friday....this is work-in-progress on a fourth piece. *high fives all around* Currently trying to get the hang of making Reels on IG so I've been filming little snippets of my painting. Which is a challenge given the size of my small desk by the window. Yep...I got paint on the bedsheets today. *LOL*

Friday's Florals - getting back to floral painting


 


It's been almost a month since I last did a floral painting. A break after #the100dayproject was totally necessary for me to reflect and recharge. So many boo boos in this one but that's the way I roll and learn. :)

Have a great weekend my friends!

Thursday's decorated kraft bag


 


Can you tell that I recently found a stash of really cute stuff and just want to make cute projects? *winks*


Yes, I just want the cute pig everywhere. Currently have 2 more in my stash. But they could be like Santa and multiply! *LOL*


Happy Thursday friends! :)

Workspace Wednesday - a quick decorated notebook


 


It's been hard these days to carve out creative time. So I have been keeping projects really simple...just a few elements and I'm done.


I get to use up some supplies in my stash and there's not a whole lot to clean up. Like this really quick decorated notebook. Two scrap pieces of patterned paper, a little paper tearing for texture, a strip of washi for added interest. And a fussy-cut sentiment/titlework. 

Do the patterns even go together? Hmm...maybe not. Is it better than having a plain unadorned notebook? 100%. Let's call it a win.:)

P/s: Hope your week's going well. Turns out I had a bacterial infection on top of my viral infection so I had to dose with a course of antibiotics (which I hate because I feel loopy for a couple of weeks after...*insert sad music*).

Papa Yam's birthday 2022


 


So I found a bunch of fussy-cut patterned paper flowers in my stash...and just had to use them on a layout! :)


Never mind that it was for Papa Yam's birthday layout....everyone loves flowers, right? *winks*


Some bits from happy mail plus some recently fussy-cut elements plus washi tape...



Love a bright happy layout...:)


Playing along with Stick It Down.

Make Stuff Monday - another cute decorated paper bag


 


Is it Monday again? Last week went by in such a blur....I got so little done except for the cooking for my family part (you would think I get a free pass since I was ill but no such luck...*sad music plays in the background*). 

In all fairness, I wasn't t terribly ill just terribly uncomfortable. I had body aches and a fever that went away in an afternoon. Then I had a few days of digestive issues (which went away once I stopped eating for about 20 hours). Just when I thought the worst was over, I started to have a rash...the virus's last hurrah before ending its cycle. Let's just say I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Since I still had to cook, the flare-up was terrible after lunch and dinner because of the heat from the stove. And of course, sleep at night was disruptive because it feels way more itchy when you have to sleep. (I don't react well to medication so I usually just let a virus runs its natural course.). And did I mention that my period came a few days early too? Let's just pile on the discomfort! *dramatic music plays in the background*


Anyway, I did try to cheer myself up by working on some cute projects. :)


Creating a fun little "scene" on this paper bag. :)



I think this week is going to be a much much better week. *upbeat music plays in the background*

Mixed media floral paintings #1 & #100


 


Sometimes there's no better way than to show a beginning and end photo to show progress of your skill level. Like these two mixed media florals paintings that were done for this year's #the100dayproject. The one on the left is 1/100. The one on the right is 100/100.

Similar composition - 7 blooms in a glass jar....but such different painting styles right? What do you think?

Workspace Wednesday - happy birthday Papa Yam!


 


Hello friends...today is Papa Yam's birthday! And for the first time since I started baking (2017?), I actually served up a store-bought cake! *dramatic music plays in the background*

Well, each of them had two servings so I guess it was pretty good? Some money out of pocket, lots of time and cleaning up saved. But only because I'm still a little unwell....that's what I'm telling myself...mum's birthday is next month...think I should buy or make her cake? *LOL*
