Have a Cuppa of Starbucks Coffee

Good morning!

It's great to be on leave especially on a weekday.  I was awoken to a nice big cup (bottle) of coffee.  Mr B and I have been quite taken in by the Starbucks Bottled coffee that we can get in our near by Cheers (convenient store). Nothing beats a good cup of coffee in the morning.

Perfect way to start the morning and Christmas holidays!

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas everyone!

Operation Spring Cleaning

One of the things that I have started doing this month besides finishing my Christmas shopping is to spring clean my supplies cupboard.  (Yes, I have loads of beads, charms etc.)  I am a hoarder when it comes to crafts supplies.

I started drawer by drawer, repacking my jewelry supplies, segregated the beads, crystals, charms and findings into ziplock bags.   I broke them up into different materials too e.g. brass, silver plated, sterling etc.  I kept all the price tags so that I know how much each one costs.  The best thing about spring cleaning is that you will "discover" or "uncover" treasures that you have stored away, forgotten until now.  I actually found some charms that I have bought some time back and have yet to use them in my jewelry pieces!

It is definitely a long overdue exercise as I often get "bugged" by Mr B to clean up my "creative mess".  Interestingly, I found spring cleaning quite therapeutic! Not sure why it took me so long to get around to doing it. :)

It took me 3 days but I am almost done with the jewelry supplies and will look to move on to packaging supplies (And Yes I have another cupboard for that.) in the coming days.

Till tomorrow... now what I need is a nice long bath..

Jewelry supplies segregated into ziplock bags.

What Inspires You?

For me.. it's everything and anything that I see, touch and feel.  I am inspired by the past like childhood stories, fairy tales that I read when I was a kid.

When I was little, I love to read, especially Enid Blyton books about fairies, gnomes, goblins, dwarves etc.  I would often imagine a separate world co-existing with ours.  As I sleep at night, they are out dancing, using toadstools as seats and tables, making flower petals and leaves into dresses, fireflies as lamps.  That's the world that I imagine around me.

Such fantasies and dreams inspire me in my creations.

What inspires you?

{ Hello }


I am backkkkkkk.............

It's been like ages since I wrote on this blog.  Lots have changed and much hasn't... 

  1. We (B & I) adopted a baby boy, A.  Totally adorable. We love him to bits.
  2. We (B & I) tutored a Primary 4 boy, R in Maths & English.  It was a Community Investment initiative, the first one that we did together as a couple.
  3. I discovered DVF. My first wrap dress.  It blew me away.  A current staple in my wardrobe.
  4. I attended a personal image class last year and has (hopefully!) made me wiser in my wardrobe choices.
  5. My sister graduated with a PhD in Physiotherapy. 

Still me...
  1. I am still running Piggy's Little Shop (Woohoo! We are 7 this year!)
  2. I am still holding a day job in the same company.  3 yrs in the role.  Love what I do and the people I work with.
  3. I am still driving the same car ... same house ...  Basically I am still the same me.

Glad to be back.  Hope this time abit longer. :)
