>>> On Display! <<<

Here's what I did using BackPorch Memories Nov Solo kit. Can't say those papers really rock my boat but I think I did some justice to them. Papers are from WRMK White Out Nonsense papers.

I'm surprised how I'm doing so many 12x12" LOs these days. Used to work with 8.5x11" size but I guess they became too small for me. LOL!


Ohh, this came in the post today! Been drooling over them when I saw how they were used and tried to buy it on US Ebay but majority wanted to charge a good US $10 more than retail price. Sorry, may be desperate but not stupid enough to pay inflated prices for them. So got US friend to get them for me and it came today. Now wish I had chosen to go to the States for study instead of Europe! I would have been in Scrappers' Paradise! :)


Colleagues at work updated me about the Single Status pay. It's just so complicating but it will switch from weekly pay to monthly now. Also I might get paid a wee bit more as I'm looking after a special needs child. (I'm in charge of feeding a special needs boy through a tube in his tummy and shadowing him on the playground to ensure he doesn't get hurt. He's a cute boy anyway and quite intelligent too). Anyway, as long as there's a wee bit of cash coming in to support my hobby, I'm not bothered which structure they (the Birmingham Council) is adopting.

Cooked a big pot of curry tonite. With the weather getting colder and colder, nothing beats eating spicy food. I used a curry paste that I bought from Singapore (and thankfully found that I can get it at Wing Yip, the chinese supermarket here... hooray!). Added chicken breast and drumsticks, potatoes, boiled eggs and chickpeas and viola, it was done.

Glad to say there's leftovers and curry usually taste better the 2nd day! Might have it with prata (pancake a la Indienne) tomorrow. Again, thank goodness I can get prata here albeit frozen. Gosh, wish there was a prata house here (those who have been to Singapore will know what I'm on about). I'm so missing my midnite snack!

Rite, off to do a bit of crafting... got a couple of projects that need to be done. TTFN!

Stumbled across your blog. You are a talented scrapbooker. I really enjoy viewing all your designs. I'm recently getting into scrapbooking and will come back here for inspiration. Also, the curry pot looks fantastic. Thanks for posting. Nina.
