Smurf Craze

Came across a tutorial at Maya Road DT blog of the altered chipboard house by one of the DT and I got inspired by her!

 Since I have foam eggs, which I bought last Easter to do some art and craft with the girls, still lying around  (bought too many of them... greedy I suppose :p).. I cut them 2/3 across to resemble the dome-shaped roof and carefully followed the instructions given. I modified it here and there as I don't really have all the items that had been used.

 For the base.... I altered cookie/biscuit tin covers with patterned papers and ribbons.... The plastic flowers are donated by my girls Hello Kitty collection (LOL!!!).

The smurf figurines are from Kinder Beuno eggs which my sister, sister-in-law and myself kept on buying till we have the full set......

When I completed the 1st house.... I showed them to the girls.... and guess what.. Ah Ger asked for one with a purple rooftop??! Ok..... so... I made a 2nd one... with  a bigger yard... took me quite a while though...

View from another angle..

Took me a long time to complete them as I have other commitments that take priority seats.... but I love how it turns out!!

Thanks for looking!!!

Crafty Time.....

Did this with the kids on Sunday. Handmade Christmas tree ornaments. Got this idea on Pinterest
The girls are enjoying craft as much as the mummy do.... Trying to search for other ideas for next coming weekend. 

 A customised order for a friend of mine.

Adding this to the Handmade Gifts for sale Page. Great as a Christmas gift (which can be customised to the theme), birthday gift for a friend or simply an everyday gift. Had listed a bigger version of this frame. The sample can be found in this post.

Thanks for dropping by!

Teacher's Day Gift

Just wanted to share some scrappy stuff that I did for Teacher's Day since I have yet to take pic of the recent ones.

Customised notebooks for a friend of mine. Managed to complete them even thou' it was a last minute order.

As for mine..... I used some old felt flowers that I had made previously to 'pretty' up packaging for the girls' teachers. They were so proud to bring them to school....

Thanks for dropping by~~

Long Overdue Updates.....

It's been what... 2 months since I last blogged??
Ever since I'm back from our family vacation in Australia, my life have been in a whirlwind. Catching up with overdue household chores, cleaning up my neverending messy scrap space, cleaning up after my kids, work..... deadline on scrap projects, other tiny but important tasks in my life.. and that's my life cycle... Heh...
Plenty of photos to share.. just too little time to upload them.... plus... Blogger is giving me some problems.... too tedious to update nowadays.

Here's some pics from my trip.....

View from our apartment

We stayed at the Towers of Chevron Renaissance, Gold Coast. We decided to stay at Gold Coast as it might be too tiring for the kids to travel here and there... and staying at an apartment is much much better than the hotel. We can do our laundry and even cook!
Gorgeous right!!
Ah Ger's favorite cartoon.... unfortunately, didn't manage to take pic with them.
Cousins!!! So difficult to get them to take a pic together.
Ah Ger getting more and more brave. She loves to feed the animals.
Don't be deceive by their smile... they were actually complaining about the smell before this pic was taken... Heh....
Ok... that's all for now.... will be updating soon again!!
