Another Reason for Australia

Let's go to Australia!! Why? Well.. There's  the mountains, the wildlife, the beaches, Ayers Rock, Opal mines, etc, etc... Still not convinced? How bout this then..






Simone lives in a charming beach house in Australia. These photos are actually of her old studio. She blogs about her crafting projects (all types) and about her ongoing project of designing and furnishing her new studio (which, to my own opinion, is going to ever prettier than this one!). You will definitely not regret following her blog, Beach Vintage.

Off to China!

Hi, ladies!! Guess what? I'm really, really, really, really excited to say... I'm off to Beijing, China!! Ron and I are celebrating our first anniversary and we thought, well, what better way to celebrate than take our first out-of-the-country trip together? Sort of like a second honeymoon. Only my mum and aunt will be tagging along. *sigh* Spoilsports. lol Nah, I love them both to pieces and we're happy they're coming with us! Actually, we invited them. The more, the merrier! :)

This is a scheduled post by the way. Knowing me, I'm probably running around the house for some last-minute packing by the time you read this. And Ron is probably rolling his eyes and sighing at my harassed state knowing that he's told me a dozen times to pack ahead of time. hihi Yep, we make a good team. Anyway, I knew I'd never get any blogging done on the day we leave. Hence, the scheduled post. And a few more scheduled posts for the next few days so you won't miss me! :) lol

Barn Buddies

Ever played the game Barn Buddies? It's this interactive game where you grow and harvest crops, much like FarmVille only you get to have a smaller area to work on.

Um, no, we're not going to play. It's just the title that popped into my head when I decided to show you what I'm about to show you.. :)

No turning green, okay?

Bedford Project Table Set



Graham Smart Technology™ Secretary



Cubby Organizer - Natural stain



Build Your Own - Bedford Home Office Modular Components

Yeah.. All from Pottery Barn.

It's okay to dream and let a few pictures inspire you every now and then.. But always remember to count your blessing and be grateful. A lot of people have far less.. :)

Have a great day! :)

Sometimes Less is More..

If you're just starting crafting and you still don't have the space (or the funds) to come up with a whole craft area complete with shelves and drawers, you're not alone! I still don't have any of those either. I only use our dining table for crafting. Beggars can't be choosy and all that.

Anyhoodle, I'd like to say, "Don't fret!" Sometimes, less is more especially when you don't have much of a choice. lol

The benefits?

- You get to find what you're looking for in less than 5 minutes since you only have 2 areas to look for it on: the table and the shelves.

- Being able to see everything with a single turn of the head, you'll now know what you do have and put those to good use instead of buying stuff all the time. Less "Aha!" moments of course ("Aha!" moments are those when you felt like you won the lottery because you found something in your bottom drawer that you forgot you had) but it will also mean more savings and more supplies used. :)

- Fewer stuff will definitely save you a lot of time on cleaning and organizing.

- You'll finally have something to pull you back from hoarding supplies! I mean, where in the world are you going to store 50 pads of scrapbook papers, 50 edge and corner punchers, 100 clear stamp sets, 70 rolls of ribbons, yards and yards of lace, 5 crates of buttons and 3 digital cutters??
