Big Day

I'm sorry from my blogging absent. This is my excuse today: I have a big day to prepare, Baby G is 2! Should I call her ToddG now? Look at my empty dessert table, must hurry!

And you're all invited, of course! I was thinking of going with the seal only but Baby G's Pop said it was too empty for a circus, so tell me what you think, how's the invitation? Too crowded? I just want to tell him, "I told you".

Vice Versa

I love the word versatile. Don't you just love words that start with un-popular letters of the alphabet? V, W, X, Y, Z... Sometimes they get left behind and have really thin sections at most dictionaries. Anyho.. the incredible Zee (see, that's why I love calling her by her nickname) gave me this award called versatile! Thanks much! Looks like I suppose to name 7 random things about me that you probably haven't heard of, or not, er.. well, here goes..


  1. I'm pretty good with animals, I love them and I have never get bitten in my life (except for mosquito and other bugs, of course). Even a trained rottweiler once lied on his back, tails shaking when I approached him, the owner was quite embarrassed. Maybe I smelled like one?
  2. On the contrary, I'm not very good with people, especially new ones. Shy, perhaps?
  3. I have never been a devoted fan of rock stars. But I gotta say that the Beatles and Queen's songs make my ears smile. Yes, I'm old school.
  4. My favorite Sesame Street characters as a child and adult are Count and Oscar. Love how they are "different" yet still lovable.
  5. No, I don't think Bert and Ernie are a romantic couple. They're just an odd friends.
  6. My grandmother was a model and a kindergarten teacher. Isn't she lovely?
  7. I do like seeing socks with sandals trend but you've got to be really crazy to put them on under the hot sun here in Indonesia. I think that's one trend I can't never pull off.
Well guess I have to pass it on to 15 people now. But here's another fact of me, I love bending rules. So, andi, miki, tuppence, holly, martha, and kelli. Here's to you.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Lemonade {for} Life

When one of my nice readers asked me in an email, "Have you uploaded all the Lemonade Party Kit?" I had to say, "Unfortunately, yes, for now." and that reminded me that I owe the rest of you readers the announcement as well. Yes, the Lemonade Party Kit printables are done. Please do use them in your parties or simply just because. Like these kids from volumetwentyfive. Visit them for more photos and tips to make that utterly cute and effortless lemonade stand.

Vinyl Forever

Check out Ashley's crafty faux leather/ vinyl accessories tutorial. You just can't stop making them. I think I need a quick run to the material store now.

Also, I need your help. I have my word verification turned on, as you may have noticed, but I still get those advertisement comments which have adult contents. I really really want to stop those flooding into my blog, as, well, my blog is not restricted for adults only, and to be honest, we adults here don't talk about it here too. Any suggestions?

Sneak Peek

Can't really believe that Baby G's going to turn 2 this month! When did the little cooing creature start singing a song and dancing to it? I have decided a theme for her party and here's a little peek. Yes, bright colors alert!

Also, out of the topic, my current girl crush, Clemence Poesy (oh, I could mumble that name whole day through), best known as Fleur Delacour (oh, I could mumble that name a whole year long) from Harry Potter series.

Slumber Party Paper Doll Printable

Get your printers ready and loaded, folks! And your magnet paper too! Another paper doll is coming your way!


If you were wondering why lately I made only fair skinned blond girls for my printables, once again, because this were custom made for Averie and Josie, two little girls with exact description as the dolls. Their mom is very generous when I say that I want to share this printable with all of you, at her cost! Thank you! If you want to portray your children, well you can always ask me for a custom made one.

PLEASE respect my effort in making and designing the printable. Though I share it for free doesn't mean you have the right to sell, alter, and/or claim it as your own. Use it for personal use only, if your friends want a copy don't give them yours, give them the link to this post.

PLEASE do tell me if you found the printable elsewhere that violated my rights as the maker.

PLEASE share your real parties, modifications, creations, ideas, etc using the printable, you can send the link on this post or you can send the pics to my email.

Have a Picnic

Since we love summer breeze so much, why don't we dine on the grass for once? And if you're feeling like packing up your sandwich and soda cans, be sure to check this earth friendly, over the top cool picnic box by boxsal. They even have the concrete lover picnic boxes too, just in case you can't spot a field of grass near you.

Enjoy your weekend.

Low Riders

I adore Maeve's current issue editorial. The styling, the pose, the pint sized models, and particularly the low horizons in each background. Monalisa, revisited, I must say. And the fact that the whole wardrobes are hand me downs makes it almost too awesome for a children fashion spread. Any children magazines should really refresh their minds that fashion spread should be taken seriously (and artsy too), skip the playground and/or bright colors for a while, would you please?

I personally love the Bruce-Wayne-by-day-Batman-by-night one, but you must have guessed that.
