Anyone there???

Seems a bit quiet here at the blog ...
Seems like my friends have gone off to other places...
Well... life goes on.

First up... Superpig's birthday was last Friday.
He went to work as usual and he did hint about a cake.
The night before, we were at a minimart and he said,"You need to replenish your baking stuff?"
I did not think much of it until Friday afternoon itself and realised that he hinted for a birthday cake.
So I baked... and this is a chocolate eggless butterless cake.

It was perfect for Aver.
It was good enough just that I cut the sugar down a lot so it was not as sweet as a cake should be.
Aver loved the cake a lot as she was simply thrilled that she could eat one.
Ash loved it too as she was involved in the baking.

Then there is a little girl, C, whose birthday falls behind Kenny's.
So I made her a bag.
I made another one for her little sister, C, whose birthday was a lot earlier (which I had forgotten...sorry)
I hope they like the bags.

Marina Barrage

We went to Marina Barrage on Saturday, nearing evening and the weather was quite good.
Not overly hot and not overly overcast either.
However, the trip was cut shorter as the rain eventually came.

We put Aver on the grass patch for her to have a little run and with wide eyed expression, she asked,"Mei Mei can stand on the grass?"
She know her skin condition and has been very obedient by following our rules so we allowed her to run for free on the grass but on the condition that she needs to be cleaned up after that.
She was really happy!

We want to talk a walk at the barrage but it rained so we had to get to our car before it started to pour.

Clutch Prototype

My Mum took Ash out for the day to someone's baby shower and Aver is in school so I have the morning to myself.

Superpig's colleague is kind enough to give me a chance to produce some bags for her. So I used this time to come up with a prototype.

This is what I had came up with and I am quite happy with it actually. Will wait and see what she says.

What do you think? Any advise?

Some messy fun

The two princesses are at home today.
I kept Aver in as we do not have the car today and it is too much of a hassle to send her to childcare.
So they messed up their room real good by playing Pretend Play.

Then I started to prepare for another version of messy fun... Decoupage!
Sticky and icky but fun enough.

Cutting fabric scraps

Cutting paper scraps

Pasting away

Satisifying smile with the mess!

A pose with their finished product.

Satisfied smiles from two precious princesses (or... Empress Dowager and Queen!)

Till next time, please take care everyone.

Crochet Bags

Spent quite a lot of time on these bags.
Almost 10 to 12 hours over 2 days for each bag.
I love it... but they are not ready all done yet.
There is still the inner drawstring bags to be made.
The design is still going through my head.

The bare bag
The completed bag

The green crochet ruffled flower
The second bag with a longer handle
The blue crochet fuffled flower
What do you think about them?

Just photos...and a little rambling first

I am at a lost as to what I want to do and how to do.
I am craving for some creative outburst to sew and to craft but I seem to be very limited in my ability. I really envy fellow bloggers that have set up etsy shops and have orders placed.
I may need some advices as to how to improve my stuffs.. please do share.

Now... simply enjoy the children enjoying themselves.
