Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

From my family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Hope 2013 was eventful and that 2014 will bring you bigger and better things!! I think 2014 will be good to us and blog wise, I hope to share more than paper crafting projects with you all. I am getting a bit more comfortable with fabric and can’t wait to dive into a few projects and sharing them with you. Just like my card making and scrapbooking, I hope to get better at each and every project and have this blog to document my successes and failures. Have a great

Our AMAZING Craft Fair

Last Sunday, a few friends and I welcomed 28 vendors and over 450 visitors to our Christmas fair. The fair was held in memories of a dear friend to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity. This was the reason I went MIA on blog land. The idea of the fair came up earlier in the year, but, for whatever reason (I forgot) it wasn’t until the end of October that we decided to go for it. With the (iron hand) leadership of my (OCD) friend (if you’re reading this, you know I love ya), we managed to pull everything

Banned from FB for 12hrs

So here I am. I am a bit miffed that I got banned from FB just because I politely (not kidding) shared the benefits of traveling from a young age. The post was originally asking for kid friendly restaurant recommendation in Paris. But one member went a bit negative (saying something about Paris not being kid friendly and that kids/babies shouldn’t travel until they’re older cause they won’t remember anyways and won’t appreciate) and many responded to her negativity. I responded also and at the end included a few restaurant recommendations. Here’s a snippet of what I wrote: I’ll have

Home. Alone.

Journalist: So, what’s it like to be a stay-at-home-mom in the day time? Savitri: Blissfully dull! The girls have been in school for almost four weeks now. Since Jovie’s a June baby, she didn’t start full time from day one. Her first week, Thursday and Friday, she only went in the afternoon, 1:15-3:15p. The next week she went M-Fri 9a-12:30p and last week she went to school full-time, 9a-3:15p. Last week I made myself a schedule. Monday was grocery shopping and deep cleaning the downstairs. Tuesday I put more stuff from random boxes away and laundry. Wednesday I worked on

Fall is Here

┬áThis is the longest blog break I’ve ever had since I started blogging in 2008. I guess after five years, one needs to take a breather from creating paper goods and sharing life with the world. I feel refreshed. I want to keep blogging and life is good! So here I am posting my first blog post after a long hiatus… The weather’s been odd lately (and you cannot live in England or read a British novel without some sort of weather talk). Usually there’s some sort of gradual decrease in temperature from summer to fall. But not this year.

She is Beautiful!

Inside and out. Sometimes us mommies tend to see (and brag about) academic, athletic, and/or physical beauty in their children. It’s not like we’re completely superficial or overly ambitious but it’s because they’re just easier to see and society can make us that way. But while I am overly proud of Emma’s grey cells, art, gymnastics and natural physical gorgeousness (and don’t forget the silky hair), there’s one thing I am extremely proud of: Emma’s kind soul! The other day I asked her who she played with at school. She said she played (or maybe she said hung out since
