Do more of what makes you happy

Ask yourself, what are some of the things you do that makes you happy? Find happiness in what you do and find a way to do more often of it. You don't need lots of money or trophies to be happy. You can be happy by just waking up in the morning. There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy. Count your blessings.

Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it.

For me, happiness is:

Seeing my loved ones happy. 
Everyday I look forward to go home to my babies. It is true happiness driving in my alley and seeing my baby in his cute tricycle waiting for me to come home from work.

Wedding Frame:

Friday Grocery Shopping at Tesco:

This little boy loves going out for grocery shopping. He can sit in his stroller and talk to himself non stop. Such a happy baby. Don't grow up too fast ok. 

Saturday night organizing and sorting out:

The in-laws wanted to take care of Alex for the night so we sent him to their place. Hubby and I didn't know where to go. So we went home and do our own work. I spent my time organizing my art stuff so that it is easier for me to find everything before starting my project life any further. Now that I have everything organized, it's good to go. Good to have time of my own to do the things I like. Most of my days consists of baby time; feeding, changing his nappies, carrying him around, playing and make him laugh. I enjoy every moment of it. Not complaining, but it sure feels good to get some me time for creative design. While sorting out all my stuff, I managed to snap a few photos. 

Stamps and the little things. 


Flower ribbons and sequins 

Sewing materials 

 Some of my ribbon collections

Piles and piles of stickers yet I still go crazy every time I see pretty stickers in bookstores. =P

Alex is now on solids:

We tried feeding him with Heinz's Farley Rusk and he loves it. He finished up one whole biscuit with the help of his daddy. Not bad for a first timer. Yay, so proud of him.

Project Life Starts Now

I can sit all day in the office looking at beautiful images and creative ideas on Pinterest. It's so fun if you have the time to sit and slowly try out some creative ideas. Besides Pinterest, I also followed a few blogs on Scrapbooking and Project Life. Scrapbooking is not something new for me but I am so keen to try the new in thing now called Project Life by Becky Higgins. I could not wait to start my new journey with it. It looks so easy and neat. Been looking for it for days now and doing a little bit of a survey for her products. After searching high and low, I came across Papier website and voila, they actually carry the Project Life kit. I was so excited so I told my hubby about it. Knowing how he is with 'ceciwi-ness' of getting new stuff, he agreed to take me to Papier, The Curve. So, last night after stopping by Baby Land for Alex's milk, hubby accompanied me to Papier to look for Becky Higgins' products. I was so excited right until I saw the price. I was somewhat shocked and frustrated after looking at the price tag for each and every item. I swear, at one point, I felt like screaming and running out from the shop. Everything there was so pricey. Being the nice person, he offered to buy me the complete 4-piece beginner set for RM550. I actually told the salesgirl I will think about it and come back soon but hubby insisted to get it for me. Katanya, it's a present. Hehe So, I went crazy for a few minutes by myself deciding on the designs. Hubby didn't want to help me decide on anything at all. After purchasing, I automatically became a member with grab bag as a free gift for new member. Okay, brace yourself for this awesome present I got from Hubby. Tadaaaaa.. Can't wait to start documenting my daily happenings.
