I realized that lots of things have changed over these past two years.

Some lovely people whom I used to follow on their blogs have/had fallen off the blogging grid like me.

But, pleasantly, there are those who are still scrapping and their styles have evolved somewhat, and their works still inspire me.

Anyway, I'm having this throbbing headache right now and I'm feeling lazy to attend my Zumba class. -_-"'

But I think I might just push myself for that calories burn.

So let's Zumba away!!

Where Do I Begin?

"Getting my blog background updated.

Saying,"Hi friends! Long time no see! It's been 2 years too long!"

Thinking through the scrap materials inventory that is collecting lots of dusts.

Re-visiting some of the scrapblogs I used to hang out at and read. Getting some inspiration along the way.

Telling myself to aim to blog once a week at the very least which shouldn't be hard to do."

These are some of the things that I've been telling myself to do for very long. I lack the motivation and conviction, thus seating on my behind for way too long and procrastinating. I'm such a procrastinator.

Having no time is not a good excuse I suppose.

Probably I'm just bad at managing my time at updating and scrapping.

Then again, I really have no one to impress so it doesn't really matter.

What matters are the friendship I had forged over the years even via scrapbooking. For that, I am thankful! Always thankful and always lurking in the shadows and checking on your blog every now and then.


Anyways, here I am, back at blogging and hopefully some mini projects.

Revamping the look of my blog would definitely be a work in progress.

Found this website which have absolutely gorgeous backdrops and designs for you to dress up the blog with. You can check them out here:

Any ideas on how best to keep my blog dated? Anyone out there still checking on me to see if I'm breathing? I know I do tweet at times, but that's about all. I should consider to Instagram my site too.

New Look for a Fresh Start!

While uploading songs into my iTunes, I was just surfing around and chance upon another free blog skins site and loved the shabby country chic feel of it all.

After all, I've named this blog as PrettyShabbyChic{ky) did't I? duhzzzzz

Ok, I've got some country vintage patterned papers to give away from MME's older range (Wild Asparagus)!

Time for a RAK!

Not sure if anyone else is reading my blog ever... LOL

So post me a comment, leave me a link to blog hop so I can leave some love. Share with me any happy news - what's been happening.

I'll draw a winner by 31st March 2010!!! So spread the word!

That leaves me some time to be able to start scrapping a layout or two or maybe three to start sharing once again.

note to self: dare I even hope to have any friendly faces come by here?


Songs into my iTunes in my newly acquired iMac so that it can by iSync with the iPod Nano.


I've brought the towering stacks of CDs and slowly feeding into the new machine to build up my song list.

Mostly Praise and Worship songs from Hillsongs, Australia.

of course, not forgetting some of my favourite artistes from the secular music world - Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Ting Tings, Gwen Stefanie, Olivia Ong...just to name a few.

Loading my iPod with awesome sermons from Pastor Prince. Gotta feed on the Word.

I'm still stuck at my first layout for year 2010. LOL

Hopefully I'll get somewhere tonight with all the songs to keep me company.

Catch ya later!

It's been a while

Hi everyone! How's everyone been?

I nearly forgot that I even had a blog! LOL! Now that is really bad isn't it?

I've finally moved and settled into my new place albeit there's still much things that needs tweaking and some minor touches of embellishing the new place with pots of plants.

Moving on in 2010 definitely. New year and new changes.

In fact, lots of new changes.

In fact, I've moved on away from my DTs... well, Dreamgirls is kinda defunct now, which was slightly a shocker for me as I thought the challenge blog was really fun to do though I was on a break and I thought it was going on strong. But nevertheless, I wish Dolores all the best in her new venture! I'm really grateful for the opportunity to be working alongside great and amazing and inspiring talented ladies!

I've moved on from Pink Sketches. Since Kelli is having a break from the sketch blog and we won't know for sure when she's coming back to it, I decided maybe to just step out for good. It's been a great run with Kelli and the Pink Sketches team! I've known tremendous people and had met really nice ladies. In fact, Pink Sketches was my first DT and I do feel nostalgic about Pink. But all good things must come to and end eh?

I've moved on from The Story Matters.... well I think I've been dropped, but doesn't really matter :) They have a new lease of life and it's became a kit club in Penny Smith's hometown in Iowa (I think - I'm so not good with the geography of USA). And I believe it's going in the right direction and it's great to see Penny bringing in more new talents to work the kit and the challenge! I'm really grateful for the opportunity that you (Penny) had given me. I really think out of the box on some topics and tried scrapping out of my comfort zone. And I've had more personal pages than I didn't think I would have coz it's a natural inclination to be scrapping more on your little-tyke (now pre-schooler) or family as a whole.

I still have yet to get back to the Groovie Forum though I would very much love to! In fact I should drop by and say Hi! sometime this week. I really missed the groovie ladies there!

So what have I been up to? Nothing much really...just work...contract's been extended till June 2010 which is a good thing. So I'm looking around for a new job/new portfolio to go to. Job hunting is no fun, what with things like interview and all...I feel really rusty going for interviews...I really have no idea what to say anymore... I'm working for the sake of having to work to earn my own keep...

On the scrapping front...well, I did a last minute impromptu farewell gift for an ex-colleague whose gone of to UK for good and I put together a couple of pages for colleagues to sign all around, giving her their best wishes as well as scrapped some pictures of her and her husband (they just got married)...and that was that in December last year.

Till date, I've yet to scrap a single layout since moving into my new place.

Oh where, oh where did my mojo go? Oh where, oh where could it be???

Anyway, I should be coming back with some photos to share, taken over the past few months while we were in transition and in between homes.

Till then, thanks for always checking back!

I'm taking a sabbethical break from


Design Teams.

I apologize to my scrapper friends and blog friends who have been faithfully dropping by from time to time to check up on me, to see how I'm doing/holding up.

I'm doing alright now, just busy, still get the bouts of stressed up feelings but it's better manage now.

I'm really really grateful and THANKFUL for my various DT owners, mainly Kelli, Penny, Dolores and Debbie, Edleen and Dorcas for allowing me to settle my busyness with work and house moving.

It took alot of thinking and deciding to just do it and email all of them to ask for a sabbethical break.

I will definitely miss working with them during this period of time, the opportunities they had given me had been had been wonderful and mind-blowing too!

I've grown much in my scrapping style, in the topics, in the use of different techniques/products, scrapping outside the box and out of my comfort zone.

Through these design teams, I've gotten to know tremendous talented scappers from around the globe, always inspired by what they contribute to the team, and they go beyond the SB mags/publications.

I don't see it as a lost by going on a sabbethical break or even if the need be, to step down/give up being on the design teams.

As much as it feels good getting some form of recognition
(come on! most of us who are on design teams do somewhat wants some form of recognition)

but honestly, if you take all that away from me,

I'm still me

and I still love to scrap and will continue doing what I've been doing.

I'll still share my layouts here coz of friends from far and wide who do ask me to continue to share.

I will be back scrapping for the current DTs come Feb 2010.
(provided they still want me around. LOL!)

Maybe I'll just post the status of my house moving with pics!

Cartons are starting to stack up around my home now.

So till then, stay blessed and thank you for your love!!!
