Since this blog was started last April, I have had many friends, acquaintances and for those who do not know me, making time to drop in to say hi and for leaving many wonderful comments. And I would like to extend my gratitude to everyone for your wonderful support & encouragement in making my journey in scrapbooking a pleasant one.
This blog was never meant to be a place for my rantings and ramblings, but a place to share my passion for scrapbooking. But of course, occassionally, you will see me share some wonderful insights of my family and friends and also a little bits and pieces of my private life.
Nevertheless, year 2007 has truly been an amazing year for me. It is through scrapbooking, I have met wonderful friends, from Singapore and all over the world, who have laughed with me, share their life with me and I’m thankful for their friendship. They have unselfishly given me much more than I deserved. And I thank you for that.
My family, especially my wonderful husband, Rainer and my boy, Ethan have ‘tolerated’ my absence from our daily family quiet time together and I thank them for their understanding. Ethan may be too young to understand how passionate I am with my scrapbooking hobby but he has shown me great patience in giving some time to myself to scrapbook. My dear hubby, has of course but rarely voiced his displeasure at me for leaving him alone with my boy when I scrapbook but he too has shown me respect and support for my hobby. And I thank him for being such a wonderful friend and husband.
Some of my friends may feel like I’m neglecting certain responsibilities or my lack of interest in putting in 100% commitment into this scrapbooking hobby. But I like I said earlier, I’m passionate about scrapbooking but I would not consider making it a ‘career’. This is just an interest to me where I found solace during some difficult time I faced at my workplace. It is some form of a stress-relief therapy for me, when I’m having a difficult day at work. At the end of the day, my family, friends and my job, are the main priorities in my life.
If I was given a choice to choose my family over scrapbooking, that is IF, I’m at a crossroad, to choose only one path, it would be my family. However, I have not come to that crossroad yet, so be rest assured you would continue seeing me create.
There are times when I had acquaintances, very concerned about my well-being, teaching me how to lead my life and teaching me how to keep worthy friends, I thank you for that. But little have you known about me, I can proudly say, I’m stronger than what you think I’m made of and I’ve experienced life more than anyone, but not everyone. I’ve sunk to the lowest point of my life years ago but I’ve picked up all those bits and pieces and I learned to move on. But then again, thank you for your concern.
I may not have said Thank You enough or more than I should have but deep down inside, I’m grateful.
And right now, I’m enjoying my family, friends, scrapbooking and creating!!
Have a great evening!
