Wow.... Ellen left me a comment and asked if I am buried under the rubble... she is soooo funny. Yes.... I am buried under the whole reno thing....... so many details to look at. And not forgetting all the packing I am doing here. How come I have stored up so many stuff? In between the busy reno and packing...... I managed to teach 2 classes this month at my LSS. But something happen yesterday (just before class) that left me speechless and stil in shock. I was getting ready to teach a class in my LSS when news that the Princess of Thailand is coming to the store in 10 mins. Wow....... yes.... she is HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. But there are staff enough around to assist them. So I was in the Scrap Lab (that's the classroom) when one of her aides stepped in and talked to me about scrapbooking. She asked questions about what i teach..... my LOs... then in came the Princess........ she was so humble and polite...... there's a calmness about her. Now my tummy is creating chaos... I am trying to sound corherent. Too 'star-struck"....... HRH Princess was very patient to listen to me - about scrapbooking....... Later Elvira (one of the owner) came down and told me that HRH scraps and her nieces told her about MWL.... she purposely planned to visit the biggest scrapbook store in Asia. How cool! And the bummer.... nobody took a pic of me and the HRH........ we were too shocked still! LOL

I have been slacking on this blog lately. I am soooo tired from running the reno works for our new house. I am feeling drained.... no time to scrap (that's why I am grumpy).......
And I have to pack.......... some stuff are in boxes. I am still putting off packing my scrappy stuff.... I got to finish some stuff for YSS next week before I sealed up the boxes. YSS sent me some really cool goodies. Share next week, I promise!
The whole house has been tiled.... next the wiring and the wood works.........
I spent 3 hours on sat, going thru every details of the kitchen cabinet work.
See my white kitchen.......... love that row of lime green tiles at the sides... you will see the full picture when we put up the kitchen cabinets. I call that my happy wall!
For my non-Singaporeans friends reading this............. I stay in a high rise building...... you call it apartment........ in Singapore we called it flats......... you see the lots of windows too.

Here are the pics of the mess:Original look of the kitchen. Day 1 day 2: everything is knocked down.... yipee... can't wait for my new cabinets and tiles to go up. All white theme. Living room/Hall: Now, covered with sand and debris.......... still some time before i see any resemblance of a living space. :)

Hello, posting this makes me all excited. Yes.. I will be teaching 3 classes at my LSS, Made With Love this April. I am soooooo in love with the 3 LOs. Some sneaks here: You will be playing with Webster Pages new papers "Magical Wishes"...... blings, lace (my fav)... flowers... you got to see the samples at the store. You will also learn techniques.... I love sharing these in class......... so that you can bring these back home and apply them to your future LOs and projects. Learn: - distressing technique, inking and tearing.... oh... you must try this! - playing with UTEE and embossing powders to highlight papers - layering papers and trims - using stickles (just a little add a touch of elegance) I am really excited to teach. Here are the date:
