Welcoming October

First and foremost, thank you all for your warm messages you’ve left on my last post. I truly appreciate and most thankful for your prayers and kind thoughts. They help in the healing process and I’m doing much better than expected. And once again, thank you to my dearest friends for your constant messages, little chats and for dropping by to see me at home. You’ve made a whole lot of difference in making me stronger emotionally and I’m definitely on a speedy recovery. And to my dearest mum who came to visit just to take care of my well being, in making sure I gain back my strength so I could be up on my feet again, thank you so much mum (even though you don’t read my blog) for all your love and care! 🙂

Well, it’s already the first week of October and we’re only less than 3 months away from Christmas and a brand new year! Time really flies. Staying at home for the week, I’m already writing out my to-do list for the next few months. There are so much to do, preparing for our family year-end vacation in Nov/Dec, compiling my Christmas gift list, finalizing my own wish list for Christmas (hah!), getting Ethan ready for his school tests for the final term of his Primary 2 year (already?!), making more new buttons for Halloween, Christmas and many more designs, setting dates to meet up with my bestie Jan and hopefully Ally, trying to pick up where I left my Project Life (that’ll be a big challenge!), my plans for year 2013 and the list goes on and on and on……………….

What about you? Are you already planning for the year end program for yourself and your family? Or have you start preparing for the upcoming new year 2013? Would love to hear your plans for next few months. 😀

Anyway, after 9 months of being on a hiatus on the creative front (not counting my Project Life), for the first time in year 2012, I actually scrapped! Can you believe that I’ve never actually scrap a single layout or make any mini album or cards or tags since the start of this year? Yes, it was that long ago! I couldn’t believe I could actually pick it up again after 9 months but I actually did last weekend. Unbelievable isn’t it? I was very much afraid I’ve lost that touch, afraid that I don’t know if I could do it but I was glad I managed to create a decent mini album.

Spending 6 hours just creating this was indeed therapeutic. It took my mind off of many things and I felt a sense of calmness during the hours when I was completely focused on creating this album. I’m glad something simple like this could make me smile in contentment. It’s good to be back again.

I hope to be able to get back to my table and make a little something again. Soon I hope. 🙂

Thank you once again for making time to visit my blog.

Will catch up on lost time soon. See ya soon!

    I know exactly where your coming from. When my father was dieing scrapping was my therapy, I scrapped every night for about two months, I haven’t been able to look at a particular mini book I did in that time yet, but I will one day when the time is right.
    Yes scrapping is very therapeutic.
