o damn .... but happy November!!

and so my start of the week didn't too nicely.

i just said good bye to someone forever for not turning up.
Irresponsiblity ranks low on my threshold meter. So my time was wasted waiting (read: swimming instructor) just like that for the 3rd time.
I'll gladly and readily accept if the reason is valid.
Would you budge if it is as lame as "I forgot" or worst, "I am at the airport now".
it happens to be my girl's swim-instructor; not mine :P

Then, i thought let's treat ourseleves to some indian food at the nearby coffeeshop.
It started well with smiles and greetings from the vendor UNTIL he looked at my kids and asked me "You from indonesia ah...?" (trust my instinct, he meant " are you a domestic maid?" ) and me, the dumb girl actually answered " urm no ... from singapore". omy, did i just answer him?! LOL !!
go ahead and have a laugh... what was i thinking and i must have looked the extreme today. i can't decide which is worse...

i think i am about to bite....

Move on...
Here's one GCD Studios' layout i created using one of my evergreen fave. :) i'm so boring i'm using butterflies again. but the butterflies from GCD Studio's Artsy Urban Collection are too pretty !






and another, a canvas chunk - used Tattered Angel's glimmer mist :) i'm in love with my glimmer misted seam binding...



and finally, so glad there's a new instructor over at Made With Love!!
Pooi 's new classes debut this month and do check it out HERE :) !

okay, i shall go chill.... you take care and will visit you soon :)

Wow - I can't believe a waiter would be so rude as to ask a question like that!

Love what you're doing with the seam binding - I think I need to dig in my sewing supplies to see if I have any left.

Oh how rude firstly to let you down 3 times and then what a lame excuse "at the airport" is....oh and the rudeness of the coffee shop man, I sometimes see people look at me like that - my first impression is he is thinking oh "a single mother"!!! but then I smile and think hey - you are the one SERVING ME?? food for thought dear friend. I love your divine layout just gorgeous. I love the sewing.


I just received my "Made with Love" newsletter and would love to buy some things in that great shop, is their an online buying part, I just love their awesome variety....I cannot though see an online shop button.

I had a giggle about "the bite comment" Love to you all. Melxx
