Morning Walks and City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 429 ~ Fall Colors

It has been slightly over a week since we moved to the new house, I felt like I haven't get anything done, let alone setting up my craft room.
I haven't been able to sleep well at night and wake up every hour because I have some much on my mind.... need to get the pantry, kitchen going, get the curtains up for privacy etc.... whew.....
Since I got up early every morning at 6, I take Papi for our morning walk....

that's the nice thing about Vegas, we are surrounded by mountains, when I walk out of our gated community, I see mountains from far.....

and when I turn right, I see our Lone Mountain, the one used to be at our backyard....

and on our way home before turning right into our community, I am facing the mountains again.....

Papi already knows his way home, he knows when to make the right turn.......

There is so much rules with the HOA, not only we have to pay nearly $200 to the HOA, we had to get approval for any little thing we want to do in our own backyard, like putting in a plant..... we are so angry about that, I put in a little garden/pee pad for Papi on the very next day we moved in because I didn't want him to just pee anywhere in the backyard, so I am retraining him to just do his business at pee pad garden, and then we found out that we probably would get a fine for that because we didn't submit our application for approval before making that garden pee pad! That makes me so angry!

the garden is not complete yet, we still need the edges done but it is on hold because of the HOA, right now, I have the pea gravel on top of some other soil and rocks and mesh, at least Papi has a spot to go to do his business, I think the mushroom is not very happy getting watered everyday though, LOL!

Ok, better keep this short since I still need to get back to unpacking, LOL!

Here's the project for City Crafter Challenge Blog, the theme is Fall Colors, check out challenge details HERE!

I hope you stop by City Crafter Challenge Blog and join us this week!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 428 ~ By Sea or Sky

We moved the new house on Friday, the movers came at 7AM and left at 6 PM, and still cannot get everything done, over the weekends, both of us have to drive back and forth from old house to new house to bring the rest of the stuff, and this morning, we finally managed to get help from someone who is willing to work on labor day and bring the bigger items that cannot fit into the car to the new place, whew...... I track my steps on my apple watch, oh boy, I completed all three circles on the watch all 4 days, which I only achieved when I am traveling and on my foot all day.

Why do I have so much stuff??????

Goal I set for myself moving forward - to get rid of most of my crafting stuff!!!!

I have not turn on my computer since last Friday, I finally had to hook it up to write this post! Ok, I better get on point and then get back to unpacking!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 425 ~ Books

August 9th is Singapore's National Day, on Sunday, we went to my friend's house to celebrate Singapore's birthday, I baked a vanilla sponge cake for the party...

it was hard to get my whipped cream frosting to the red like in our National Flag, no matter how much food coloring I put in (I usually don't like to use that much artificial coloring), I am still getting pink instead of red, oh how stupid I am, the cream is white, it will never get to this red that I want, so I had to get my husband to the store at 11 PM to get my 2 cans of cherries, that is the exact red I need!


This week at City Crafter Challenge Blog, the theme is BOOKS!
Check out challenge details HERE!

I still love this old stamp set from Papertrey Ink called All Booked Up, and the background stamp is also from PTI, the wreath die I believe is Reversed Confetti, sometimes you have so many things you don't remember where are they from, does that happened to you, or you are super organized and remember all your stuff?

I am still putting new items on my Crafty Stuff for Sale Page, do check it out!
