A new relationship that is.. :) 

This boy (Deddy) and I started going out a few days ago.. It's been a while since I've actually dated anyone (same for him too!) LOL! I believe that the wait is well worth it. 

God has been preparing me for him.. preparing me mentally and emotionally and when He believes I'm ready, bang! I suddenly met this boy, who's not entirely new to Wellington, yet we only met this year. 

I believe that God always has a plan.. everything happens in HIS time. 

I'm excited and hopeful to see how this relationship grows.. :)

Last Sunday the usual close group of people got invited to Mba Nina & Jeffry's place for a small 2nd birthday party for Isaiah. :) 

This little dude pretty much captured all our hearts from the moment he was born. He's the cutest and cuddliest little friend.. and all of us just can't help but lavish our love, cuddles, hugs and kisses on him. 

He's no longer a baby.. and that's a little bit sad that time has flown by so quickly.. he's now a little toddler.. he prefers to hang out with the boys.. and doesn't really want to be picked up and cuddled by us girls anymore.. I'm mourning the loss of that.. 

He's learnt to say please and thank you, to say my name, Michie, which he pronounces Cici.. I'll take it! :)

He's learnt to cuddle when you ask for it, and he still offers his cheeks when you ask him to kiss you (instead of actually kissing your cheek).. 

He loves balls and Blues clues - this explains his birthday cake in the photos! :) 

Hope you had a great birthday little Zay.. Love you!

This post is so overdue it's just crazy! :) 

Just a quick scrappy update with a couple more Studio Calico Candy Shoppe layouts.


All the photos in this layout is courtesy of Herdi.. he's done all the editing and all I had to do was just print them in the size I want! :)

Finally got to use my Instagram and Hipstamatic photos in a layout.. :)

First of all, Happy St Patrick's Day!!! :) 

I'm guesting for Simply Artistic for Card #12. I was totally blown away and honored when Angie Backen  contacted me and asked me to guest design or Guest ArTCee as they call it, for this round of ATCs.

Do come along and join in the challenge. This round's prompt is really inspiring and I made 2 ATCs based on it. 

On another note, I received my March Studio Calico kit - Into the Woods and Add On #1 - Babbling Brook yesterday. The photos of the kit totally did not do it any justice! There's just so much loveliness in it!! And I finally got the Martha Stewart Classic butterfly punch too!!

I've not touched the kit yet.. I want to do more with Candy Shoppe and then maybe this weekend break into Into the Woods. 

Anywhoo... that's all from me today!!! Have an awesome day!

Wow February sure flew on by!

With 1st of March turning up, autumn officially started too.. and with that, I caught a cold! UGH!! Not good! But am better now.. thankfully...

Had the chance to scrap a few layouts last couple of weeks.. and forgot that I haven't posted them here yet.  So here they are :) 

This one's done with Studio Calico's Documentary Line

I used Studio Calico's February kit - Candy Shoppe for this one and the bicycle stamp is from their Jetsetter stamp set.

This one is a combination of Studio Calico's February kit - Candy Shoppe, Documentary line paper and Angie Delarie's tags. This was also for my March DT layout over at Angie Delarie.

Another  one done with Studio Calico's February kit - Candy Shoppe.

I misted pretty on any of these layouts with Mister Hueys by Studio Calico. 

This is my first month subscribing and I'm loving how the kit is jumpstarting my creative mojo again. Feels really great to be creating again... 

Anyway.. that's all for today.... thanks for stopping by... :)

There was a Chinese New Year festival/parade at Frank Kitts park last Sunday and I had made plans with Lia, Sammy, Dira, Dhani, Iyud and Adjie to go.

Sunday dawned bright and beautiful... the perfect kind of summer day for Wellington... all sun, a little bit of cloud and pretty much almost no wind...

I met up with the group at Frank Kitts park, but we got there a bit late and only managed to catch the tail end of the parade - the lion and dragon dances only really. We met Ayu, Kania and Herdi too and Herdi was there with a mission - to take photographs!

Woohoo!! the cam whore in most of us said! :) He obligingly took photos of us all.. and they were pretty cool!

We stayed to catch a bit of the cultural performances - nothing spectacular I must say. And being that it's such a rare perfectly beautiful day in Wellington, the group decided to head to a bubble tea place only to change our minds and ended up at Parade Cafe at Oriental Bay. We walked along the waterfront part of the way and posed for many photos... :)

All in all a pretty photographic afternoon. Herdi, Ayu and I ended the day with dinner at One Red Dog.

Photos are courtesy of Herdi. :)

Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon! :)

I've just been soooo bad with blogging last year.. this year I'm taking pressure off myself and will blog when I can rather than trying to blog each day. 

I do have a few things to blog about for January, but I'll probably end up back dating that blogpost :) 

For now, I have a new layout to share ... It's for Angie Delarie's new Valentine's Day tags. These are so cute that I was just super inspired to create with them the moment I saw them!!! 

Here's my layout - done mainly with KI Memories, American Crafts and Angie's tags. This is a layout of my brother and sister-in-law. 

This is the first layout I've done in months and the first layout for 2011.

Now for the giveaway part, run along to Angie Delarie's blog!! 

She's having a giveaway that will be drawn on 12 February! :) 

So... until next time... I'm off to catch up on a bit of blogreading and possibly calling it an early night..
