A Note of Thanks

Today, when I open my blog, I receive such a sweet surprise...
I got a very encouraging comment from the art master, Donna Downey, as I used her painting title to mine. I can't believe my own eyes that I got that.
She left a short comment yet deep.
Meaningful to me. A lot.

I am one of your fans. I love your artworks very much.
Thanks a lot, Donna... You give me lot of inspirations.

A Letter to My Best Friend

I like you.
I like you a whole lot.
I like you because.
When something matters to me,
it matters to you, too.
When you have a good idea,
you tell me first,
and when I do, I tell you first.
That's why we make such a great team.

I like you because
When I say something funny, you laugh,
and when I'm not my usual self,
you notice right away and ask me "what's wrong?".
You're there for me and I'm there for you.
That's what friends are for

I like you because... I JUST DO.

When somebody asks me who my best friend is,
I say, "You." And you say, "Me."

And fifty years from now,
we'll say the same thing.
That's the way it is and will always be.

To all my friends, my good friends, my best friends,
we don't have always talk and meet quite sometimes,
we don't have always be together,
by calling and saying 'hi', it has already been brightened each other's day,
I know that you always have me in your mind, and so do I.

I do hope we could hold this 'long live friendship'
as long as we live ...

My children's Interests of Art

Having a mother who teaches scrapbooking classes, doesn’t make any different to my children’s art interests.
I ever asked them to make a scrapbook layout, but it ended up with their words of saying ‘mom, I’m tired …', or
'mom, would you please finish this for me …', or
'mom, can I continue this later …', etc etc …
Many reason not to finish the scrapbook.

Well, I can not insist them to have the same passion in scrapbooking as I do.
My daughter, Nadya, likes to draw and write, she’d prefer to make some comics and stories rather than make a scrapbook layout. These are some of her drawings and comics :

While my son, Dhira, he also likes to draw but his interest is more to play with his car toys. Here’s his drawing and unfinished scrapbook layout.

It happened about 2 years ago. Quite long time to keep this story only to share between my close friends, now I want to share it with you.

One of the famous radio stations in town had a program to give a chance to the lucky listeners who sent their play list of the 80’s-90’s songs to the radio. The ones who win should present their songs as an announcer.
So, I told a friend, who really loves lots of music, to send her play list, who knew she’s going to win. I sent my list, too.

And then, you know what happened next??
I was one of the lucky listeners!! I felt so happy :) I never thought to win this program.
But… I had to prepare myself to do the taping, to be an announcer of my own play list. Nervous, of course! What should I say, how my voice would like be? Ppfffff…..
nervous…! nervous…. !

So, the day had come, I met with the radio people, which are all very nice and friendly, and…. younger than me….:)
Thank God everything went smoothly..
I gave another experience to my life … To be an announcer…

Here’s the list :

I bet you all know those songs very well, right? Or maybe one of them was your memory song with someone ;)?
For me, I just love to hear that
easy listening music.

Go get your paper and writing pen, start to jot down what you feel, anything in your mind . . . , it can be words, pictures, or you can just move your pen with crazy over your paper. Make it bold in some words or pictures, you can also add your favorite colors. La voila! Your doodle is done!

My Family, My Life, My Inspiration

The most influence people in my life are these 3 very special persons. My beloved husband, daughter and son.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom - Marcel Proust.

Digital Scrapbook

I'm actually not a digital scrapbooker. This time i challenge myself to make one with the minimum software i have in my computer. I thought the layout is too simple, not like the ones i make it with some papers and other embellishments. Well,... got to learn more bout this and get another digital scrapbook software.

Flower and Hope

How do you feel if you see flowers blooming under the sunrays ?
Peace, hope, joy and beauty are all around you.

Good Song to Bring Back a Good Mood

Still learning and working out... 'coz I have lots of things in my mind to put in this blog. When it gets stucked, my favorite songs will be the best thing to keep my mood stay on track. Here's one of the play list :

Make It Mine
Jason Mraz

Wake up everyone
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue
Leap and the net will appear

I don't wanna wake before
The dream is over
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I... I known it
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I'll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it's lifting you up
Up up and away
And over to a table at the gratitude cafe

And I am finally there
And all the angels they'll be singing
Ah la la la ah la la ah Ia la la la la love this

Well I don't wanna break before
The tour is over
I'm gonna make it mine
Oh yes I... I will own it
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I'll make it all mine...

Time is everything
And this time there's plenty
I am balancing
Careful and steady
And reveling in energy that every one's emitting

Well I don't wanna wait no more
Oh I wanna celebrate the whole world
I'm gonna make it mine
Oh yes I'm following your joy
I'm gonna make it mine
Because I... I am open
I'm gonna make it mine
That's why... I will show it
I'm gonna make it oh mine
Gotta make gotta make gotta make gotta make it make
It make it mine
Oh mine...
Yes I'll make it all..mine

Thanks to him for this good song to cheer up the day...

Friends, this is my first blog. I am still learning and working on it. If u find this blog is changed from time to time when you drop by, then please be understood that it's still under construction .. :)
