Last Sunday, I plucked a rosebud from his garden. It's always amazing to watch the flower blooms.

Found some Kaisercraft wooden clouds and animals at the shop last week and painted them with acrylic paint. Gold and mint are perfect together. Playing with pastel spring feel colours. With the use of MT tape, I have painted them in stages. MT tapes work wonders. They peel off easily. Acrylic paint dries up fast and does not smear. I bought some pins to be glued onto the back to make them into brooches. Magnet is another good idea. Or just leave them as they are. Stick them onto a card perhaps.

Two weeks ago, Faith and I had a crafternoon at her house. One of the crafts we made was paper-making. It was a fun process, blending the old newspaper and magazines together
with coloured pulp, sieve and flatten them to dry.
Today i took some ink and scribbled Faith, Hope & Love on them. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
It's a season in life to learn these, Faith, Hope & Love. Especially it's drawing closer to the end of this year, I am thinking about the future, what to do next year, plans and dreams. Fear is lurking around. About the unknown and uncertainties. I need to refocus and trust and keep my hope. And love to see us through. What lies ahead... only God knows. I believe He has something planned for us. He knows what's best.
Thanks Faith for the fun and bringing the dried up papers to me.
Look forward to more craft sessions together. :)

Last weekend, I've visited the Finders Keepers Market at the Royal Exhibition Building. It was full of handmade products ranging from jewellery to cards and homewares. E bought me one of Emily Green's lovely necklaces (above) for my birthday. Here are some of the photos I've taken at the market.

Frankie new Nov/Dec 2013 issue 56 appeared at the Finders Keepers Market at Royal Exhibition Building over the weekend.
This issue's cover art is by Anke Weckmann.
Inside this issue contains lots of inspiring stories about seriously thinking about the 'why not' in life.
Here are some snippets from Frankie. The issue is out next week, i think.

So i have just turned twenty-six over the weekend. It was a wonderful birthday weekend celebrating with friends and of course, finally spending it with him for the first time!
Thank you for your thoughts and little surprises (although i've spoiled some of the surprises! haha...) Initially i was thinking of baking a really huge layered cake covered in frosting and sharing it with friends. Only to find out from him that he was going to bake one for me. Aww... hehe.
Also, thanking all my family and friends who have made me feel so loved with their warm wishes and gifts and presence. It was a strange nice feeling to be receiving so much that it was kind of overwhelming!
I whispered a prayer on my birthday morning thanking God for His love and grace, and all the blessings He has poured out to me. It was a time for personal reflections and i really needed this time & space.
