Phew!! I’ve finally found time to sit down, with no other distraction especially from my son, who is sound asleep, to post this!!

It’s been a mad mad week for me!! I don’t really know what I’ve been busy about but I just couldn’t really find time to post anything!! I’ve been wanting to thank all of you who have dropped me your comments on my last week’s RAK #2 post but I haven’t got the time to do it until now.

So, THANK YOU everyone for your comments & I want you to know that I had such a wonderful time reading every single one of them!! Reading each & every comments posted by you really took away all my worries & stress for the week. Really appreciate you taking time to put down your thoughts.

Writing out 58 names wasn’t an easy task especially when some of you have the same name, so I have to attach a number next to your name so I won’t mixed you up from each other.

I really have to tell you this, if I can give every single one of you the RAK, I will do so!! But I hope you will understand that I only have this one & only one RAK, I can only pick one of you.

I did the draw by myself this time because I wouldn’t want to spend the only strength that I have left with after a mad week, wrestling my son to the floor for the winner!! That’s what happened on the last RAK draw!!

No pictures of the draw will be shown because I’m just too lazy to upload it!!

Are you ready for this???









 RAK #2

will be………………………………







I have 2 Elaines and the winner Elaine said this:

Hi Leena, you don’t know me but I love reading your blog and oogling at your layouts and projects – they are really lovely! Hope to meet you in person one day at MWL perhaps. haha.
3 Things I can’t live without:
a) Coke – have to drink at least one cup everyday
b) Internet – stuck at home taking care of the kids most of the time so I need this badly

Congratulations Elaine!! You’re one lucky girl to win this RAK from me!! Please email me your address so that I can mail this RAK to you as soon as possible!!

    Hello Leena! No problem about it. Appreciate and luv all your efforts to bits! Congrats Elaine! =D

  • yati (asydin)November 19, 2007 - 4:54 pm

    congrats Elaine!!! 😀

Here’s round 2 of the RAK I’m giving away, purged from my stash which I know one of you would deserve what I have packed up for you!!

My very good friend Lia & I will be taking turns each week, until we’ll call it a stop, to give away our stash which is in need of new homes. 😉

Here’s what I have for you this time round & hope you’ll love it like your own, if you happened to be picked to be the new owner!!!

More than 20 patterned papers, epoxy sticker, rub-on, chipboards & a brand new box of MM brads!!



 Yes!! Its a whole brand new foam letters from MM, never been used before & a whole piece of circles chipboard from Technique Tuesday!!!



So, are you loving me now after seeing what I’m going to give away??!! Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!

You just need to tell me what are the 3 things you definitely can’t live without!! That’s it, simple as that!!

Here are the 3 very important things that I definitely can’t live without!!!

1) Concealer (no way i’m stepping out of my home without this!! At this age I’m in now, I HAVE to cover all my blemishes, dark circles & wrinkles!!! Call me vain but I don’t care!! ;p)

 2) Jeans (I’d die if I don’t wear them when I’m off work!! You wouldn’t be seeing me wearing those pretty little dress, walking aound!! I think I have more than 60 jeans clothing from long jeans, capri jeans, mini skirt jeans, SUPER MINI skirt jeans, overalls jeans etc.)

3) LV Tote bag (I bought this 10 years ago in Frankfurt when I was still flying for about S$550!! I think now it would costs more than S$1000!!! Crazy!! I know it’s expensive for a tote bag but it has lasted soooooo long & still looking good! The reason why I love this bag, is because I can dump in all the things I need when I’m out, my wallet, coin pouch, card holder, phone, keys, i-Pod, toiletries pouch, note book, novel, magazines, water flask & any other things more!!! Amazing, isn’t it?? lol…….

Tell me all about it by next Saturday, 17th Nov, 9:00pm Eastern Time!!

Have a GREAT weekend!!  

  • BeckyNovember 11, 2007 - 1:08 pm

    Keke 60 pairs !!

    Here are the 3 very important things that I definitely can’t live without!!!
    1) My camera – I take pictures daily and without the camera it feels like I have one arm missing.
    2) The Internet – That’s how I keep in contact with all my friends and the latest news.
    3) My diary – With my memory messed up by the pregnacy hormones, I have to depend on the diary to remind me of all appointments.

  • nettystampsNovember 11, 2007 - 3:08 pm

    Let’s see, three things I can’t live without…

    1. Caffeine…gotta have it. My fav forms are hot coffee and diet coke… yes I am addicted…but I have never got past the 1st step towards giving it up….as you can see I have NO problem admitting to the addiction..haha
    2. My comfy clothes…sweats, a tshirt, and sport bra. God love the girl (gotta believe a woman invented something as comfy as a sport bra, just like I KNOW a man invented the corset….sexy and as uncomfortable as you can get….LOL)
    3. Last but not least (and I am hoping that family is an understood can’t live without item and we are starting the list right AFTER them) CHOCOLATE! Just another addiction… :)
    Love the blog…

  • ColleenNovember 11, 2007 - 3:29 pm

    Wow! 60 pairs of jeans?!

  • cathyNovember 11, 2007 - 3:37 pm

    Wow what sweet pretty candy you are sharing with your readers. Pick me….I will go in my stampin room and hidden to play with this loot!
    Ok 3 things I can’t live without:

    1) MONEY-No money…no buying FUN stuff to play with.

    2) STAMPING-I’ve been obessed with this since I started and I have to try everything. Like techniques, altered items, and of course you can’t forget all the new tools that come out.

    3) SCS & BLOGLAND-I don’t have a blog. I know shame on me, but I’m a TRUE blog SURFER. I’m surfin for hours and have to squeeze in reality and stamping.

    Thanks for a chance at your sweet giveaway.

  • JuliannNovember 11, 2007 - 3:48 pm

    Wow, 60 pairs of jeans! You are a jean girl! OK my 3 are: 1. Jananese Cherry Blossom lotion, I love this stuff for years I couldn’t find a scent that I like from Bath & Body and I am always putting lotion of especially my hands; 2. Hair color, I am a hair stylist by day and I color my hair every 3-4 weeks, actually I am quite obsessive about roots (thankfully they are not grey yet to my knowledge, hee hee); 3. I call them zip-zaps but they are like athletic pants, they kind of make a zip-zap noise when you walk, these are my comfort Sunday pants paired with a t-shirt under a sweatshirt I am in lounging heaven!!!
    Have a great day!!!

  • micheleNovember 11, 2007 - 3:49 pm

    oh my! so many pairs of jeans!

    mine are:

    flats. don’t like those spidery thin sticks that masquerade as heels and support for the arched foot. give me flats with good arch support anytime! running in them is much easier too!

    music. i NEED music. or sound. something! silence is deafening. and contrary to the phrases, “silence is golden” and “sound of silence” just don’t resonate with me!

    sleep. i’m such a little piggy i know!!! give me 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day! i love my sleep!!!! =) had 4 hours of sleep once, and ended up totally wonked out, and with a fever to boot the very next day!

  • ElaineNovember 12, 2007 - 1:51 am

    Man!! You have me sooo beat with jeans! I just bought my first 3 pairs about a year ago at Black Market White House – I thought that after I had kids I wouldn’t fit anything, and was too afraid to try. I had gone w/o jeans for almost 15 years! I did own a pair of cutoffs – but that was only because we lived in CA.

    Ok, my top 3:
    1) Fran’s Gray Salt Caramels…I cannot live without them!
    2) RL Blue fragrance
    3) The stampin & scrappin room w/ all of it’s mess & creative overflow!

  • TerriaNovember 12, 2007 - 2:08 am

    2) Velour Jogging wide leg pants – I have a closet full of each color and some have the jackets to match I even have repeat colors, and they must be wide leg.
    3) Pepsi and Chocolate – I have been on a diet that just consist of Pepsi , water, and candy bars so i can’t do with this two they get me though my day.

  • LydiaNovember 12, 2007 - 5:07 am

    Top 3 things I can’t leave without with for my daily life..

    1) Call me vain if you want, but I can’t tolerate myself without nicely shaped EYEBROWS…I now have this weird habit that I WON’T LEAVE HOUSE without them
    2) My HANDPHONE. It’s freaking important now because I no longer have hardcopy of my telephone list. I know I ought to update myself constantly with a telephone book but I’m just so plain lazy to do so.
    3) INTERNET! I need internet daily. Seriously…I must at least minimum log on to the net once. Even if I’m overseas, I’ll hunt for internet cafe and laze inside for 1 hour.

  • ffellieNovember 12, 2007 - 5:31 am

    Hi Leena! :)

    Well, not that I can’t live without these things, but i’ll find it real hard!

    1. clean toilets! – I have been known to ‘hold’ instead of relieve if the toilet is dirty!

    2. chilli padi – i love them to bits. all food that are not very nice would be instantly very nice if i add this wonderful red thing! maybe if i want to go on diet, banning chilli padi from my food list would help a lot.

    3. trips to indonesia – for the food which often is unavailable elsewhere, or if it is the taste won’t be the same; the cheap massages (1.5hr for S$5-S$8 who can beat that?!!) and of course a time spent with my cousins!

  • Jan SchollNovember 12, 2007 - 5:43 am

    23–my favorite number in the whole world!

    okay, the three things I cannot live without.

    1–my running shoes. if I leave the house, I have to have them on. otherwise I am barefoot. I have tootsie problems, so have orthotics in them at all times. I get a new pair every 400 miles.

    2–peanut butter-I eat at least a cup a week just spooning it. I buy it when its on sale and then ration it out. I got 48 jars last week. But It wont last long.

    3. volvic bottled water-I cannot drink the stuff out of the tap-like drinking bleach. I drink a liter and a half every day. I carry it all over-and someitmes I have a hard time getting more but now WHole Foods has it.

  • DeliaNovember 12, 2007 - 7:37 am

    Ohh!! All the goodies. I would have to say my 3 items are:
    1) The reading chair in the bedroom.
    2) My phone. I think this is more about the contact with friends and my man (I’ve just moved to a new country and his visa hasn’t been approved yet)
    3) My black pants for work.. I would seriously have a problem if I had to wear dresses everyday..

  • ElaineNovember 12, 2007 - 7:39 am

    Hi Leena, you don’t know me but I love reading your blog and oogling at your layouts and projects – they are really lovely! Hope to meet you in person one day at MWL perhaps. haha.
    3 Things I can’t live without:
    a) Coke – have to drink at least one cup everyday
    b) Internet – stuck at home taking care of the kids most of the time so I need this badly
    c) a good magazine to read – it’s a must especially before I go to bed.

  • LynNovember 12, 2007 - 9:10 am

    Hi – the RAK is really awesome. Even half of it would be a super RAK.
    Three things i can’t live without:
    1) my hubby…. love him to bits!! even though there are ups and down, as in every marriage.
    2) sleep – the balm of hurt minds, chief nourisher in life’s feast. I sleep a LOT. 😛
    3) a hair-tie – my wiry out of control hair can drive me nuts sometimes!

    3. Crocs. My feet have been insanely happy since I discovered Crocs. It’s time to buy a winter pair.

    1) love – totally cant survive without this from my brothers, family, the boyfriend n friends.
    2) crabtree & evelyn body lotions – i have terrible scaly n itchy skin, seems that only this is able to stop it, the lovely smell is a BIGGGG bonus!
    3) handphone – the need to pester people in my list with my exciting everyday-life.

    Just to be clear : first thing is kids and hubby…

    but besides…
    can’t live without…
    1 – jeans too… my everyday wear when I’m not working… can’t imagine what else to wear besides that ???
    2 – internet access… I think I would never have heard about scrapbooking without it…
    3 – coffee… I stopped it during my 2 pregnancies… but except for that time long I can’t spend a day without “my dose” !

  • AnnaNovember 15, 2007 - 5:26 pm

    Hi Leena, regardless of whether I get to win or not, just wanna say a huge THANK YOU for the RAK. This is especially encouraging for newbies and uncreative people like me!

    Anyway the 3 things are (Apart from my husband and family), in no running order:
    1) Reading! I absolutely love to read!
    2) Wits! Witty books, witty movies, witty conversation.. etcetera.
    3) Milo! I love to drink milo. Its a staple drink for me to have upon waking up

    wow- this is such a fabulous project!

  • VelSeptember 13, 2008 - 1:04 am

    Wow, your frames ROCK! Amazing work!

I’m just totally shacked out from last night’s outing!! Been at the chalet at Downtown East in Pasir Ris for one of my work mate’s ROM celebration for more than half a day, chilling out with food & some fun & Ethan himself was over the moon with the rest of the kids, jumping, laughing & shouting their hearts out!! And……………………… he had nightmares!! As expected, he played too much & we expected the nightmares to come soon after he fell asleep & we’re so right!!!:)

I had this sore throat which just came last night!! Aaaarrggghhhh!! I hate sore throat!! It’s an unpleasant feeling, that irritates the hell out of me!! So, I gulped glasses & glasses of water & now I’m feeling pretty much better, thank God!!

Ethan was having a really cranky day today, totally uncooperative & throwing a fit over everything!! Gggrrr……………… wish I could just tie him on his ankle & hang him upside down!! He really gets on my nerve & I’m in the midst of breaking down, probably because I wasn’t feeling too good myself & I feel the need to have some peace & quiet around the house. *sigh*………………….

When DH got home form work I was like, “Oooooohhhh, great!!! You’re home, you take over Ethan pweazeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!”.

Then DH was really sweet, he asked me if I want to go for a ride on his new bike tonight to unwind after DS is asleep & I said why not!! 😀

I hadn’t ride a bike for the longest time & I totally LOVE the look of his new bike!! Looks so retro, with all the chrome parts so neatly polished! The look of the bike reminds me of the movie “Grease”, which looks quite exactly from the 60s, really cool!! But frankly speaking, I’m quite afraid to ride on a bike since I had a little mishaps about 15 years ago. Had a slip on the bike & I scalded my inner calf!! Suffered great pain & the scar is still visible now. It’s not that I don’t trust DH biking skill, I just DON’T trust Singapore drivers!! I’d probably ask DH to ride real slow & avoid the cars as much as posible. We’re going for supper!! We haven’t done this for quite a well!! Yipeeeee!!

For now, I’m still waiting for DS to fall asleep. Talking about that, I can still hear him talking!! What’s he still doing up at this hour???!! I better go check on him, of all nights when DH & I wanna go out he chose to stay up late!! Rascal!!!

  • emelineNovember 4, 2007 - 4:29 pm

    so cool got bike ! Great prop for a picture to scrap 😀
    kids this age never stop talking… LOL !

  • JazzNovember 5, 2007 - 1:30 am

    Tell me about kids non-stop talking!! hah!! My DS & Pink Princess can just chat away together for ages & ages!! and also quarrel….just to add to the stress!!

    And my, so sorry to hear about your sore throat…yes! lots of water would do the trick! Hope you’re ok now!

  • BeckyNovember 5, 2007 - 3:33 am

    Aww Leena I am sorry to hear you’re not feeling well !!! I hate sore throats too, they are just the worst. Gargle with warm salt water… I don’t why but it really helps take the pain away and makes the sore throat go away sooner.
    I know what you mean about needs some time to yourself! Hang in there !!!

  • WatiNovember 7, 2007 - 5:40 am
