ponyo said... Hi, Lynn! I'm from inspireMe! I posted your link to my blog!!! You and your works are really pretty! I'll come and visit again!

Dear dyllis and ponyo, please email me your address at for the goodies delivery!
I've decided to split the RAK so that I can give more!
Only in giving will you receive, don't you agree? :)

Talking about giving spirit of this Christmas,
will you like to help World Vision by buying a kit from Prima?
I'm definitely getting a kit or two because it is a blessing to help!
So if you like, do head over to Iris's blog for more details!
You can also email me at if you like to share the shipping cost to Singapore! :)


35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' Acts 20:35

I'll end the post with some cards I've made over the weekend..


Did you notice something different this blog post?

she and her nostalgia I

she ran back home, flipped open her diary and wrote her tears away.
it was the first time being ostracised by the whole class, but sadly not the last.
she wrote about how she refused to give up on her childhood crush of four years six months and offended the most popular girl in class.

so there she was sitting all alone in the crowded canteen on the first day of term 3 with hate letters from all her closest friends.
the floodgates could no longer bear the weight of her overloaded sadness and bewilderment.
she had no time for questions, let alone answers.
fatefully, under the rainy grey skies, she had not an ounce of energy left in her to hold her head up; no discerning power to know that even if the whole world is against her, she may not be wrong.
knowing she could no longer travel home with the childhood crush, she ran all the way home by herself, running not to God but to the little diary she kept since 7.

at that time, the little diary is her only comforter.
if only..
if only she had known God earlier..

The winner

of the Christmas cards giveaway goes to

Congratulations lucky! lol

Will 'mail' it to you when we meet this Friday! :)

One more good news to share:

The deadline of the RAK will be extended to next Monday as I'm still cleaning up my room furiously!

I'm going back to this mess!

Look at the bags and bags of papers and embellishments on the floor, with more hiding in the cupboards!
Does it scare you?
I'm feeling kind of embarrassed sharing such an indecent photo of my room, hopefully I make up to it by transforming it into a lovely room with the new furniture coming its way in a few days' time!
Sigh.. the life of a scrappaholic!

I'll end this supposedly short post with a sneak peek of part of the RAK.

I've such a big pack that I'm considering drawing 2 winners for the RAK.

What do you think?!

What I'm busy with...

It's a huge relief.
Because I've been thinking of selling my designs for the longest time.
Because I need more money to hoard more goods.
Because I love to challenge myself to improve on making those pretty stuff.

I've finally started my etsy store!
It's amazingly tiring to even upload a few cards up there.
The process of making them, photo-taking them, editing them, doing the descriptions and shipping costs and so on..
They can really take some years off my life!

These are the cards I'm selling in packs of 4. And I'm giving away one of these packs right here! So do leave a comment here to win this pack. The deadline will be the same as what I've set in the previous post. That's because I don't want you to get the pack after Christmas.

It's all in the name of love.
So do pay my humble little store a visit for last minute Christmas cards shopping (if you haven't already done so)! :)

Thanks to those who have encouraged and still are doing so in getting me to do what I love.
The boyfriend, as usual, has been my greatest fan, critic, mentor and everything else.

I won't know what to do this Christmas without you lovely people! :)

PS: Do also comment in the previous post for the giveaway, it's going to be quite a ton as I've discovered more replicas of products I've hoarded.

Hi December!

December turns out to be a reminder of how fast the year whizzes by.
I used to think that as we grow older, the year tends to proceed faster.
Until my 11 year-old cousin came to me and said, "Isn't this year fast? Too fast for me."
So, maybe the years are going faster, generally.

Photobucket A picture of us early this year.
In a blink of an eye, Izzy, Jing, Angie, Clar, Lump and I have graduated.
Now Angie has left for Holland to pursue her second degree in fashion,
Jing wrapping up her pupillage studies and she's starting work proper in her law firm,
Izzy has gotten a job with the ministry of environment,
Clar has been working in a job agency right after graduation,
Lump, the accountant is currently on the move to a temporary place while her house is being renovated.
Fun is still in school, but doing so well with her side job of web-designing. She's super talented. You have to check her out.
And I, I'm still the same, minus the hassle of waking up 2 hours before class to travel to my campus.
I still teach and scrap and procrastinate.

Anyway, I will love to post up more photos of the projects I've done for the Christmas crop but life gets in the way.
I got into a minor car accident but was left unscathed, thank God.
In the midst of cleaning up my room, which is a major headache because of the humongous amount of stash lying in bags and bags.
Planning a party for my students, which involves spending hundreds of dollars on presents, engaging the help of the boyfriend and cousins, checking up the perfect venue, deciding what food to serve and etc etc. It's really tiring I tell you!
Also on the table is the planning of my schedule for next year, I've been blessed with more new students without additional advertising cost, which I'm also thankful for. This just means more income for more papers! Yeah!!
I'm also working out a saving plan with the boyfriend, who insists that I need to STOP saying that I'll save and START saving. I badly want my own educational center but money is one big problem, so I better get started.

So, how's your December coming along?
Do share it here and I'll pick a winner for a RAK(remember I've a humongous amount of stash?), an idea of it will be posted real soon!
The deadline will be... in a week's time!

Till then, God bless!
