Too Cute Not To Share!

These videos totally made my day!!! LOL.

Watch how Xiao Pan saved the little lobster. So kind of him, isn't it. :) You got to love his expression when he slipped and fell down the stairs.


Have you ever seen a chimpanzee doing push ups? Watch how a bulldog did it then.  XD

Mission at the pet shop! Another of my favorites. :p

If you are addicted like me, I have more for you.


Buying strawberry cake!

Xiao Pan helping out at the farm.. and milking a cow! hhahaha. I love how he'd always run to hug his buddy when he got frightened. :p

Rainbow Love (ii) ~

Here comes my second rainbow inspired piece!~~

I attempted to fold myself a paper boat, and to my dismay.......... I'd actually FORGOTTEN how to make one!!! How can I forget something I used to enjoy making so much when I was young! :( In the midst of my panic, I managed to find some clear instruction online and figured out how to make it again. Phew.. I shall start making one paper boat everyday just so I won't forget the steps again. /_\

And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true.''

Stamp Stamp Stamp!

I remember when I was a little girl, making miniature clothes for my barbie dolls was one of my favorite hobbies (I still have my barbie dolls hidden away in my closet. Shssss.....). Ermm.. but paper clothes those were, because I was too young to learn how to sew back then. If you're thinking of beautifully folded origami clothes, you are very wrong. I'd actually used tapes to join the sides of the papers together. And when they came off easily, I decided that stapling them would be a wiser choice. It makes me giggle out loud now as I recalled how pathetic they looked. Ohhhh, I even made (stapled) paper panty with the word, 'PANTY' right in middle for barbie! Poor doll!! Hahaha!!!

Okay.. I got a little carried away. Anyway, the purpose of this post is not to let you know how I'd abused my toys but rather to share with you another interesting childhood hobby of mine. I loooove to collect adorable stickers and rubber stamps! Not only that, I took pride in sticking/ stamping them all over my textbooks, my schoolbag, pencil case, school shoes, cabinets, tables, walls, the back of my tiny hands, and anywhere you could possibly think of. Sigh.. Those were the days eh. Well, who would have thought that one day my drawings would be made into rubber stamps as well?! Heh.

Emily from Stamping Bella had transformed some of my drawings into her line of rubber stamps. Did I mention this lady has a thing for quotes too?

Check out other adorable stamps in her shop HERE. I promise, you'll be spoiled for choice!

I'm so glad to have crossed path with Emily. I tell you, this lady is the most creative, quirkiest and craziest mother artist I've ever met. Although I've never met her in person, I can feel her vibrant energy through our emails exchange and it's almost as though I can hear her contagious laughter from here! Sounds scary eh. Ha.

Here's what Emily had created with my stamps. I 'borrowed' these photos from her blog. :p Oh, by the way, she said she'll be sending me some samples! Now I can stamp my own designs all over my house again!!! Weeeeeeeeee~~~~ XD

Nice right!! I really like the raw, vintage feel!

Here's something she made for her son. How sweet!

Also, here are some lovely cards created by her designers with my stamps. My style has always been minimalist with a slight touch of color. These experimentations seem so different but so pretty too!

If you like what you see here and would love to get your hands 'dirty' to make one of these, be sure to check out Emily's website. Or her retail outlet if you happen to visit Canada: 
55 Doncaster Ave #130 Markham, ON L3T 2K8, Canada.  

Before I go, I'd like to urge you again to take a tour to Emily's blog. You'll be inspired! ;)

Rainbow Love~

Who wouldn't love to see a rainbow?!

Two months ago, I was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of this beautiful phenomenon just before sunset. For no apparent reason, I was feeling pretty down that day (must be PMS!). As I was sitting on my bed, fighting for the grouchiness to go away, I had a sudden instinct to look out of the window. There, right before my eyes was this vibrant, colourful rays. It seemed so near that I felt I could just reach out my arm to touch it. In that instance, my mood was completely lifted. 

I know this rainbow was meant for me to see, for it was there that fleeting moment and then it was gone with the sun. I know that my Angels always have their amazing ways to remind me that I'm not alone. I have lost count on the number of signs they've shown me over the years. Some of these experiences had been so unbelievable that still left me in awe as I relate them to my friends. And of course not surprisingly, most of these friends claimed I must be hallucinating. lol.    

Do you ever wonder how it feels to sit on a rainbow? Or play among the fluffy clouds? Will I get to see a castle built amidst the clouds? Wouldn't it be great if we can have a day's pass to visit these places? If you do know where to get the pass, please please please let me know. I'm willing to trade in my favourite chocolate bubble tea for the info.

“Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.”~

If rainbow can be seen at night, it would only be in my imagination...

Have a colorful day.~ ^^
