Do you usually synchronize your gifts wrapping with the same tone of shade and style? I don’t. But this is my first time. However, I kinda put some extra elements here and there to differentiate which go to who.

This one is a contents bundle of items inside wrapping in the same shade of vintage Christmas wrapping paper. I have them all store inside glitering shopping bag to give it a good presentation but easy job done. I love these used Christmas card with the baubles design. So, I convert it greeting tag attaching to the shopping bag. Don’t you think it just bringing the overall look to  another dimension. ^.^

I got these postmas wrapping ribbon which looks so adorable. I couldn’t help not to use it although it appear too crowded with the wrapping paper. However, with a touch of old recycle paper wrap around it, the ribbon just stand out vibrantly. These gifts flied to Singapore for my sister’s family!

CMAS_2012_gifts01Last but not lease, these are for all my dear friends. As for now, I can tell you, since is a month after Christmas…they love them!

Initially, I am even considering to post up my Christmas decor too. But I think let us just drop it. I promise to post the Chinese New Year or Spring decor in my home. I manage to grap some nice tweets from the forest the other day and really excited to work on them real soon. Till then…xoxo

Blessed 2013!

Have you been busy? I am. Christmas, family time, clearing leave, holiday, celebration and etc… How can one not? Are you grateful that all is over and now everything fall back to normal? I enjoy every bit of everything but now I am truly happy that I can sleep in a lil again. I couldn’t remember how many gift I bought, wrapped, and give away…how many guest I have over for dinner, or dinner I went, and not to mention how many chicken I killed to feed my guest. Okay, not the killing part, but just cooking to feed part is true. I pray that the chicken will forgive me. No part has gone to waste. Amen.

Another thing I am grateful of…I lil girl turn ONE! Yeah, she completed her first year and now moving strong to two! Surely, I prepared a birthday celebration for her, or maybe more like for me to celebrate her life in my life….and how I ended up falling sick 2 days before her birthday after attempting to do up too much. Then, I shamefully do not have much picture to show you how much deco I put up because I am trying to pull myself together with lotsa medicine before my guest arrive. Thankfully, with the help of friends and my brother…I am able to pull off my ambitious cooking plan up to almost 90%. The only down side about the food is…salty meatball which I fail terribly due to my dull taste bud. Still, I am grateful everyone enjoy it and most importantly….I lil girl have lotsa fun. She is the center of everything and I couldn’t ask for more.

I am glad that I get to spend quality time with her, looking at how much she has grown and imagining what she will be. I couldn’t deny all the hard work is very tiring. But, every milestone she achieve, kissing her the very first thing in morning, smelling her sweet sweet scent often just filled my heart with joy. I Thank God for my lovely family.

I hope you too surrounded by all your love ones and have a blessed 2013!

Sailor Christmas

I live in a country where everyday is a summer. I won’t need to check on the weather report to plan on what cloths to wear the next day, or what food to cook for the next week. Everyday is a summer. How boring good is that. Yeah ya yup! So, everyday is a bermuda day, everyday is a singlet cotton t-shirt day, and everyday is the cold cold salad day. No, I am kidding with the salad part. I live in an area we like our food cooked. Ok, let’s not drill into that as I can take forever to talk about the different about the place I live. I am absolutely fine with where I am. What I wanna say is…Christmas is not white in this part of the planet. It can be any color, any shade, any theme, any form. It can be summer. Yeah, summer and Christmas? Nope, I am not in Australia. I am in a place where everyday is summer. Malaysia!

So, I am into the sailor thing recently and found a quote which suite the sailor theme. So, I have a Christmas tree setup with a sailor looking teddy bear (yeah, just because of the blue stripe) sitting by the side, also frame up my favorite quote “Anchor of my life” with a painted white raw wood frame. What do you think? Don’t they looks cute together?

What is coming next…Christmas gift under the tree. Have you finish with your Christmas shopping and wrap up all your gift? I done my shopping but still procrastinating with the wrapping. It is just not an easy task to have a young baby around during the gift wrapping. She will just put every single piece of paper into her mouth. So, it will just have to wait till I find time on my own in the middle of the night. My dilemma? I love to sleep. >.<
