thank you

reaching 39 is something to ponder about, it's an age where i have to say goodbye to the 3's and welcoming the 4. in chinese culture, i am already 40. every birthday, i feel as if time is consuming my life. as life gets shorter as your birthday comes, my friend told me a positive thing, i should be thankful i have to count all the years i had lived. that's more important than thinking of my life being shortened as the years passed.

i know i had lived a somewhat happy life but of course, nothing is perfect. there may be frustrations and shortcomings and so many other things that will come and go but one thing for sure, i just wish my birthday wish will come true... but of course, that's a secret nobody should know. :)

bunch of flowers and a cake for me from my family. indeed, i want to celebrate it in a different way.

my third layout for studio azul...
i love the mix and match of colors here even though it's a boy layout! what can flowers do to a boy layout?

splattering some martha stewart microbeads...

stamping on american crafts thickers will transform them from boring solid colors to a highlighted and patterned chipboard title..

14 layouts in 15 hours.

last october 8, 2011, a couple of friends ( mostly Pinoyscrapbookers moderators ) were invited by Tin Yao to celebrate the post-party of Scrapbuffet at their place in Tagaytay City ( Midlands). We arrived at a rainy morning while some girls went ahead already. It was a scrap all you can event where we "INDULGE" in everything scrappy! Can you imagine the papers all you can EAT... i mean USE?? stamps, inks, punchers, embellishments and FOOD to your delight? not to mention the cheese and wine that went with it? I will have to post some pics soon because it would be unjust not to..

anyway, here are my 14 layouts i did in 15 hours. Straight 15 hours non stop. Some of my friends finished 25 layouts! can you imagine that? 

this is my best friend's wedding a couple of years back. i look thin here!

a postcrosser like me

happy postcrossing! i have been a member of Postcrossing.com for over 2  years and have received more than 600 postcards so far. i have ran out of storage but i am happy with all the clutters! you see, i do not only receive postcards in return but stickers, ephemeras, tickets or bookmarks as well not to mention bank notes from all over the world. of course i also send them tokens of appreciation! here is a particular postcrosser who sent me crochet stuffs! so surprising because i think she saw my profile interest and holly molly, she is also another hooker like me and so this remembrance which i am so happy to receive in the mail...

postcrossing has made my life more interesting.. even in the snail mail part of our system, i still am very excited to receive something from the mail once in a while.

currently, i rank 2nd in the philippines for the most number of postcards sent... how about that?!
