City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 367 ~ Hashtag City Crafter

The bathroom remodeling started last Monday.....


it has been a week, we are slowly getting there.....


this is the common bathroom where the girls and house guest used, since now the house is empty with just DH and I, it is time to do some work. The bath tub in this guest bathroom has some crack lines, it hasn't leak or give problem yet, but we thought we should change a new bath tub before bigger problem occur, it supposed to finish in a week, that's yesterday, but since we already "making a mess", might as well change the toilet bowl, and the sink, and the counter top, and the light fixture, and redo the paint, and add bead board, one thing leads to another, so our bathroom is still in the messy stage.

Anyway.... here's my project for the challenge this week at



The theme is Hashtag City Crafter, hop over to check out challenge details.


today is my sister-in-law Marilyn's birthday, so this is for her....




Happy Birthday Marilyn!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 366 ~ Frame it!

I get to spent a few days in New York with Dolce and Alfie Coconut, we went to the storage place to moved all her boxes and luggages back to the apartment, I went to get grocery for her, cook some meals and let her freeze them in the freezer so that would save her some cooking time once she starts work.



my last day in New York, Dolce and Alfie Coconut sent me off at Penn Station, where I took the Long Island Rail Road to Islip to meet up with DH and then fly home from there.


as soon as we touched down at McCarren Airport in Vegas at 11 PM, Thursday night, I continue the journey, drove 4 hours to Valencia to pick up my baby boy at Clare's apartment...


and then drove another 4 hours back to Vegas, it is amazing the things you are willing to do for your dog.

The theme is ....

FRAME IT!


these days I don't really craft much, probably just the one project per week for the challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog....


I don't have a busy summer in terms of work, not teaching at summer camp this year, and teach only a few hours per week to my private students that's about it. I spent most of my time cleaning up and tidying up the house, and tomorrow we are having our bathroom remodeled, I am so not looking forward to that.


Don't forget to hop over to City Crafter to see all the beautiful work done by the team.

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 363 ~ Sunshine

Dolce and I went to NYC last week......


it was apartment searching all over again......


14 years ago, I moved from Singapore to NYC, in 8 years, we moved from one apartment to another several times. Now that Dolce received her master degree in business accounting and starting work in less than a month, I am back to NYC to help her search for apartment. It reminded me again, NYC is really really expensive, sigh.....


but I am sure fortunate to spent a small part of my life here in my beloved city.

This week at......



The theme is "Sunshine"


the sunshine stamp is from Neat and Tangle, DP, ink and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink
