Craft for charity

My workplace is holding its annual staff charity bazaar soon.

My colleague suggested selling some craft stuff.

Foolishly, I offered to contribute some craft stuff, like DIY kits or handmade cards. I say foolishly because that means routing out some of my stuff and trying not to go nuts staying on task and not getting distracted with all the things I could possibly make.

I'm going to make butterflies from my scraps, for a start. That'll get me going and give me time to mull on the rest while I work :)

DIY name chain & preparing to move

Five weeks till I start my new posting. 3 years ago I was getting ready to move, and here I am moving again. It gets easier, I think. Hopefully.

I'm making little keepsakes for a few friends I made along the way.

Just 'a little something', like this keychain. 

I'm happy to say I found a use for a keychain ring I saved from an old lanyard or something. I had alphabet beads, and I used ribbon that Chelle gifted to me. I attempted to do a satin stitch on the ribbon to sew up the ends, too.

A Nod to William Blake

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower...

Happy 47th Birthday, Singapore

You're looking pretty good.

On Bourne. And Decluttering.

National Day holiday today!

Watched The Bourne Legacy yesterday. Ignore the critics - the series is still awesome! Watched it with my aunt lil who is my Bourne Buddy, having watched the first 3 with me. Jeremy Renner definitely gives Matt Damon a run for his money...and then some.

As for would be a good day to de-clutter or maybe not. And by the way, here's a good post, should one want to get started.


And off to relax we go...

Today we are going to my aunt's for her famous chicken macaroni soup (and lots of croutons, please). 
My grandma is making poppiah, and we might just bring along some Tim Sum that my brother just brought back from Kota Kinabalu. Yes, we are a little hardcore that way.

I miss Manukan Island. It was dreamy and a great place to while away an afternoon.

Then in the afternoon, I have Bible study cell group and dinner plans with Wen.

Now I need to get going on my Saturday housework so that I can go out to play!
