A double-pager CNY spread


 


Almost forgot about this double-page CNY spread.... (apologies for the photo...the weather has been rainy and gloomy and dark).


Big thanks to my cousin's husband Tim for the photos. I was busy in the kitchen so he sent me the pictures he took so I could get them scrapbooked. :)


As always, the kids (nephews and niece) stole the show with their cute faces and smiles.


Very happy to have incorporated my CNY decor in my layout. :)

Happy weekend friends!

Tuesday's page from the gratitude journal - blondies and green tea



I've really been enjoying filling up last year's gratitude journal. I would scan through my photos and sometimes get reminded of the things that I used to enjoy and maybe have forgotten recently...like blondies and green tea. 

Well, it's April 2024 and I haven't baked any blondies in 2024...yet...clearly that needs to be rectified immediately.. *LOL*.

Make Stuff Monday - a decorated Fresh paper bag


 


So I needed a Fresh decorated paper bag to go with the other day's decorated Fresh box since it would fit the box perfectly. *winks*


I tried to keep some elements similar so that they look like a set...but are not totally matchy matchy (so not my style..*LOL*).


Finished with some gold mist of course. :)

Happy week ahead friends!

Friday night dinner - what the Yams ate



A look at what the Yams ate...on a Friday night. Stir-fried soba noodles with veggies in sesame peanut sauce served with pan-fried pork loin and a fried egg. :)

What are you having for dinner?

 

P/s: Happy weekend friends!

Workspace Wednesday - the one where the Yams got manicures


 


So over the Easter weekend, the Yams went on a mini vacation (3 days 2 nights) to Batam, Indonesia...where we all had manicures (yes including Papa Yam). In fact, the three of them had both manis and pedis.


I went for new extensions and a fun design...



Mum wanted some fun nails so she got some nail art done too.:)

Tuesday's page from the gratitude journal about the fancy afternoon tea


 


Every year I treat myself to afternoon tea at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi. The cafe is nestled in the courtyard where you can sip your gourmet tea while looking at the lush greenery and admiring the neoclassical architecture of the hotel.:)

Sending out a happy birthday mail package


 


Remember the cardboard envelope that I upcycled along with the matching card? Well, here are the goodies that go with them. All matching of course. *winks*

This has gone postal to a dear friend down under.

Happy Easter weekend friends!

Workspace Wednesday - My Melody hand towel


 


Happy Wednesday friends! Hope you are doing well in your neck of the woods. It's been so hot here that I keep getting heat rashes. According to the weather forecast, April is going to be worse! *insert sad music*

But my sister got me this My Melody hand towel...and cute things make me happy! :)

Another decorated Fresh box


 


Wait...did this girl buy more skincare products? Yep...guilty as charged! *winks*


And since it comes in a minimalist blue box, you know it is the perfect canvas for me to decorate! *LOL*


These days I have really been gravitating towards really flattish designs because they are much easier to store/transport. I do try to layer and overlap the elements to create more depth and visual interest without being bulky. :)


As always, I love my fat birds....and flowers. :)



I may have gone overboard with the fussy-cut elements...but that's how I roll..hahaha


Finished with gold mist of course. ;)

Friday's mixed media decorated box project


 

Normal people get excited when they get a corporate gift...and want to know what's inside...


Me: ooh...that's a nice box I can decorate! *LOL*

My matte medium didn't stick to the box so I went in with liquid glue. But the paper didn't dry flat and it was annoying me so I went in with gesso and Faber Castell Gelatos. 


Next I went with fussy-cut elements to create a "border" centrepiece. You can't go wrong when you include birds and flowers. *winks*


I think it turned out quite bold and striking, eh?

Happy weekend friends!
