Short trip to Hong Kong...

Was off to Hong Kong last weekend for a short trip...and of course the highlight was Hong Kong Disneyland. Grace was so very excited...for the trip to finally come, during the entire trip and sure enough was very down and sad when the trip ends. These videos that we took during the trip help make her happier....

Enjoy....

Gosh,....another month had passed by just like that....

Time does fly...don't they? It's another one of Elise's update. She's now 8 months old...

She's not gaining weight very fast......and so, I'm feeding her 2 meals of solid right now....but she looks healthy and is always (I mean ALWAYS) on the move....her legs, her arms, her bum bum, her body....every part of her....is always on the move....

She'd started crawling....it was amazing seeing her learning to crawl...she started off with very good position, then she got mixed up and thinks that she need to lift her bum bum real high to crawls....then she did the frog leap..then she finds out how to sit up by herself...and then when she'd get hold of it....she's on the move on fours.......Now..the "gate" (the pillows) that we previously "installed" is no longer useful...why?...she tries to climb over it and that's really dangerous....and when I piled up the pillow and used her basket to block her way....she holds on to the pillow/ basket and she stands right up!!!

And...she's getting really mischevious too....Here're 2 videos of the very active girl...

Crafting....

Hello readers.....it has been a while since I last post about crafts...err....well ok, it has been a while since I last post.....not active these days.....super busy with life!

Well, no matter how busy I am, I still steal some time to make scrapbook layouts and crafty stuff....and off course scrapbook shopping. However, instead of buying and buying every time some new stuff is released, beginning this year, I limit myself to a monthly kit from Studio Calico and only buying tools (like adhesive) as and when needed.....I've been eyeing on Studio Calico kits for too long now and finally decided to make a monthly subscription.

The longer international shipment time coupled with my busy life....I've only now started using the January kit and I've only done 2...sigh....

Here's the 2 precious layouts....

The first one here...is about my 2 girls.....two pockets holding a tiny note each. The note is about the character of each of my girl.


Next is a simple layout to document down the special one week when Grace was selected the Daily Leader in her class.


Up next are 2 mini albums.

This the very thick album about Grace's first school, first class. It holds numerous photos of her in her school (taken by teachers....parents not allowed at school), notes that I made about her first day at school and even holds the receipt for her school fees for a year.

Then this is an album I made for an old friend from United States.
