Project Life | Week 21 & 24

Project Life | Week 21 & 24

Before I share my Project Life pages, I wanted to announce that my dear beloved father-in-law, had just passed away peacefully last Thursday. It was a difficult period for our family, especially my husband and all my sisters-in-law and nieces and nephews. His sudden departure due to heart failure has been a great loss to all of us. We know that he’s now in the good hands of the Lord and we’ll missed him dearly.

So, moving on, here are my two weeks’ worth of spreads using Becky Higgins Midnight core kit, printed from the digital files, which you can now purchase at Digital Project Life website here.

Week 21

Here are a few of the close up shots for this week’s spread.

Week 24

And here are also the rest of the close up shots for Week 24.

Thank you all again for making time to pop by my blog and for all your messages.

Have a great weekend ahead.:)

Right Now

It’s been a really busy week. Very very busy!

In fact, I’ve been so caught up with work the past weeks, I was missing from this blog of mine for a while, except for occasional updates here and there. It’s a new fiscal year at work starting June for my company, so a lot of new programs are running in full force. I’m hoping I’ll be settling in soon but looks like my schedule will be pack in the coming months.

At the home front, all is going well. Ethan is doing great in school after the June holiday break. We’ve noticed the changes in him (in a good way) and we’re so glad he’s settling in really well in the second term. His teacher has been really helpful in monitoring his progress and making sure the few kids in his class (who has been “bullying” him the first half year) would stay away from him. So the verbal bullying in class has stopped for now. But we know that he has to learn to deal with kids like that in future because it’ll happen anywhere else. We’re helping him as best as we could. We have enrolled him in some program in school which is organized by the ministry of education to help special need kids to overcome their emotion in some difficult situation they’re faced with. Tomorrow will be his second session and he’s enjoying it so far with a few other kids in his school. We’re just happy that the school is making effort to help kids like him with special need. It’ll definitely help him to cope better emotionally in school. At least for now, I’ll have some peace of mine and concentrate on my job.

I’m already done with two full days of meeting at work and there are two more days to go. I can’t wait for it to end soon! Oh, I’ll be leaving for Bali with some of my colleagues and bosses this Friday! Yay! It’s an incentive trip for our customers who have achieved their sales target  and some of us have been picked to go on the trip with them. Oh well, it’ll be a good break for all of us who have been working extremely hard the past year to achieve good results for the company. I’ll definitely take this chance to chill out after a long week at work. Once I’m back, I’ll pop in here to share pictures of my trip, ok?  :D

I gotta go now. But before I do, here’s snapshot of what I’ve been working on last weekend. I had lots of fun playing with watercolors and created a layout, which I haven’t done for the longest time! I can’t wait to share it with you in due time. I’m so happy how it turned out.

I hope you’ve had a great start to the week.

I’ll see you back here again soon! Have a fabulous week ahead!

Hi Leena, enjoy Bali and make sure you get a rest. Glad to hear everything is going well for Ethan at the moment.

Hi – I finally came around to visit your blog. Have been a happy instagramfollower of yours for ages :)

I do not know your childs full story. But It sounds like you have been through at ruff patch. Being a teacher myself working with children with autism, I know it can be hard to “fit in”. Best wishes for you and your boy!

Liking the sneakyphoto of your LO. Pretty and inspiring as always! :)

Washi Tape Winner!

I have to say the washi tapes giveaway response is overwhelming and I can totally understand why! Who don’t love washi right?  ;)

Personally, I have about 200 rolls on my own personal collection, that’s excluding what I carry in my shop. I’m so tempted to keep some of the designs for myself but I think I’m proud to say that I’m very disciplined to stay away from them. So, I don’t touch any of those I’m selling in my shop. A big pat on my shoulder! *laugh*

So, THANK YOU to all who have dropped in your names for a chance to win the 30 lovely rolls of washi tapes! I really wish I could make all of you winners but ultimately, only one lucky person will receive those washi from me.

And the giveaway goes to…………………………

MICHELLE WEAR - Wow. Awesome giveaway. The clouds and hearts, the cored squares, the stripes, oh… Gosh I love them all!!

Hey Michelle, congratulations!  :)

Please email me your addy at findingnana73[at]gmail[dot]com to claim your prize. If prize is not claimed by this Saturday, another winner will be picked.

Once again, thank you everyone for dropping by to play.

Please keep a lookout for this space as I constantly do giveaways (I can feel one that’s coming up this month again!) or you can follow me at Instagram (username – findingnana) for new washi tape arrival giveaways too.

Have a great week ahead!
