The best thing about having a blog is you get to make a lot of new friends! some will surprise you, and some will stay close to your heart. some prefer to remain silent, some expect a lot from you, while some, give their outmost trust on you. of course it has its downsides but its just so wonderful to know there's a few who likes what you do! always, always brings a smile and warms my heart when someone msgs or leave me comments.
I received a very sweet email from Ida one day. she wanted to give a card and something else to go with the card for her husband, giving me all her trust! i cringed! another challenge since flowers and butterflies are a must in almost all my cards! but i'm up for a challenge!
So here's what i did...
A notebook and a card with such bold brave colours! i'm quite pleased with how it turned out! and Ida liked them too! *sigh of relief!* Posted them and hope they'll arrive safely together with a little something for her ;)
Thanks Ida for the trust, and the incredibly super fast payment! i really appreciate it! good luck with your new house, i'm sure everything will go as planned and it'll be a beautiful house!
Hardy's back from Gothenburg so now Aidan and i are going to shower papa with all kisses, smooches, hugs and tickles till he beg us to stop! have a lovely weekend everyone!

Here's the honest truth, i sometimes sit infront of my table not knowing what to do. there's just a million and one things to do and sometimes i dont know which one to start first! there are just some days where my mind just went blank! but not for this paticular case, nope!
I received an email from a friend of mine, K.Muna (whom i havent even met till today, but hope to meet one day..), who lives here in holland. asking if i'd be ok to make her a few cards for her daughter, and her husband. an order i just couldnt refuse! (especially when she mentioned that Elsa's such a girly girl!).
I got straight to work! i really enjoyed working on Elsa's cards.. both her birthday card and her valentine's card.
In one of K.Muna's emails, she mentioned that she was inspired by my mum's breadcraft and decided to have a go at jewellery making. i felt extremely happy and couldnt wait to tell mum! of course just by hearing that, anyone would be overjoyed! it's really nice to know that you've inspired someone. its just a warm feeling in our hearts ;) (i'm very proud of mum, so my heart's pretty warm too!)
Hope the 3 of them had a wonderful Valentine's weekend. thanks so much for trusting me to work with your cards K.Muna! here's sending you and your family loads of love all the way from Sittard!

Some days are better than others. today, to be honest, i struggled with Aidan. he was somewhat showing his other side the whole day, while i, tried my very best to keep my calm and be reasonable and reason things out with him the whole day! (some successful than others).
But above all, despite the tiredness and the exhaustion, it is still very very rewarding. and i would do it again and again if i have to! (after a good rest, of course!). as i watch him sleep, clutching his favourite lion pillow his oma gave him when he was born, every tired bone in me was healed. every bit of it was worth it. i even felt guilty for saying no to him wanting another teeny bit of my sap (juice, which contains sugar!!!). i should have given him his 4th sip!
Love is pure. a mother's love is pure. by the way, a good friend of mine just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl 3 days ago. her baby's name is Eva. eva's half french and half malaysian, so just imagine how she looks like!! i cant help but to stare at her pictures everyday! to see a photo of a new mother and a newborn child is just pure bliss. we hope to go visit them in paris one of these days... such a joy!

We were invited to our dear friend Alberto and Katrien's house in Leuven today to welcome their newborn baby boy Lorenzo. it was a lovely gathering with lovely people and lovely cakes and vlaai!
Baby Lorenzo was such a cutie, and not to mention so good and well behaved! he slept soundly as we all talked and giggled.
I just love making baby things! it is always a joy to welcome a new life into the world. and what more to shower them with gifts and love! and so i prepared them a bucket of gifts. i LOVE these buckets and i currently have a line of them on my shelf to store most of my itsy bitsies. added Lorenzo's initial to personalize it. perhaps later they can use to store his small toys, crayons or socks! i'm sure it'll come handy!
I made a banner for baby Lorenzo's room. very pleased with how it turned out. used loads of papers and ribbons as well as trimmings for this project.
Here's the second card with some MM's charms on them.
Anyway, that's it for tonight! i'm trying my best to reply emails and finishing up most orders in time. but i do hope most of you would understand that my main priority is my role here at home. home is definitely where my heart is!
