Dear Cley and Yang,

When you both have grown into beautiful ladies, remember the moments…
- when the first thing you do in the morning is visit each other and play with your dolls
- when you’re both having fun you even forget mealtime or bathtime..lolz
- when another kid bullies one of you, the other one will always be there to defend you.

And though time may come when both of you go on separate paths, remember that you will always be best of friends.
Love always,
Tita Gaye

Hush little baby; mama's near,
To brush your hair and calm your fears.
To kiss your cheek and hold your hand,
'Til you drift off to sleepyland.
To help you count those little white sheeps,
And sing you songs 'til you're asleep.
To tell you tales of kings and queens,
of Jack and Jill and wonderful things.
So snuggle up and hold me tight,
And dream sweet dreams all through the night.
And every night when the sun goes down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

Dearest Sofie,

Singing a lullaby for you is a gift. We thank God for giving us this opportunity, for the joy of watching you while you’re sleeping. Remember that Daddy and Mommy will always be here by your side.

And when you find it difficult to fall asleep, know that we’ll never get tired of singing a lullaby for you.

Mommy and Daddy

I won in a Tinkering Ink challenge

This post is long overdue. I should have posted this last week. Anyway, better late than never. =)

Last week, I got an email from Candice of Memory Box informing me that I was one of the winners of Tinkering Ink Challenge. Wow! I had to read her email a few times before the message could sink in. Haha This is my first time to win in any scrapbook layout challenge. Now I know how it feels and I'm loving it! You can check my layout here and Tinkering Ink's announcement here. Too bad they said we were from Singapore.

Paper Roses from Coffee filters

Yup! You got it! From coffee filters.

I was watching Martha Stewart Show when this project was featured. I felt it was difficult to make one when I saw the finished product. But when Martha and her guest, Cassie Chappell, started making the roses, I changed my mind. Hey! I can do that too!

For full instructions go to:

By the way Cassie has an online store where you can order her gorgeous roses, Mommy Makes Roses
