It’s Saturday!!


I didn’t think I’d get excited about the weekend after being a work-at-home-mom but I do cause on weekends I can sleep in! Even though Jovie cries a few times at night she’s a late waker upper, just like her sis, so we all can sleep until 10 a.m. here and there although on average Jovie wakes up at 9 a.m. Lately though, even if she wakes up at 8 a.m. I can just give her milk and some books and she’ll happily drink and “read” for an hour or so… sometimes she’ll even go back to bed! Jovie LOOOOOOOVES her books! I’ll share a picture sometimes of how she’d fall asleep!

Today I have a little card using the new Waltzingmouse sketch, number 27. Do play with the Mice cause there’s an awesome prize for one lucky participant!

My mom made me the center flower piece. She’s the crafty one in the family. Although we have different taste she’s the one who encouraged my love for pretty things. She loves clothes, jewelry and just anything a girl can wear. That’s why she got into sewing. She didn’t have a fat pocket book to buy all the clothes she’d love to wear so she’d make them. Since I was in junior high my mom has owned a very successful custom dress making business in Indonesia. When she came to visit a few years ago she taught me how to make some handmade flowers from ribbons but I’m not very good at it. The whole stitching as you go always messes my flower up. She tried to teach me how to sew too but I’m just not good at it either. When I visited her in Indonesia I got fired from sewing buttons on… she was short on people one day and she regretted that she asked me because the outfit looked like crap after I put the buttons on. I had to remove them all and my mom redid them… ahhh… I’d love to be better though. Imagining all the cute things I can make!!!


Well, that’s it! Enjoy your weekend!!

  1. This is so fabulous!! I just love the colors and the yellow flower your mother made.

    I love sleeping in, too. I occasionally get to sleep in that late when my husband is home and the kids don’t jump in bed with me as soon as they get up (usually around 8:00).

  2. I love this card!.. love the colour combo and the misting.. now I must say.. the bloom is just Gorgeous!!

    well all I can say its that I love trying things, sewing whatever.. but I totally lack the finishing touch and the patience the Oomph that it needs lol.. same boat huh! I do still try though..

  3. I am in love with this card you created! The color combination is so pretty! The red from the patterned paper reminds me of cranberries but combined with the soft blue makes it perfect! And I also can’t sew for anything. I’m barely good enough to fake it – straight lines is about all I can manage. And when I have to sew on a curve…..look out! It’s a danger zone! Ha!
