Abu is also our new colleague who joined us with Azliza. However when his birthday was on the first few weeks he joined (back in October) and nobody knew it was his birthday. So, I thought of making a card for him to 'ganti balik'. Sorry its late Abu. Hope your birthday was a happy one.

I thought it might be a good idea to do some online business and so I made myself this little advertisement. Yep, in my favourite color again. I hope my cards can help others share love with their loved ones and bring joy to their lives ^^.
Price: from RM10 (not including shipping cost)

I first did this research back in 2008. I was very surprised and excited to find scrapbooking and craft shops blooming in Malaysia. I'm still grateful that we Malaysians are able to have have access to buy these supplies today. I hope we will be able to get more and more brands into Malaysia. ^^
I don't mind sharing these info as I believe "Sharing is Caring" and I would love to see more Malaysian crafters coming out with lovely production to enhance our local crafting market. Also, I hope you all would pass on the information to other fellow beginners ^^
Anyways, this is a recent update I did of the shops I know/found. Don't think its complete though. Some are shops that I've personally found and visited while others are from research and some are recommended by friends or readers of my blog. And from my very own personal experience, some of my personal favourite shops (in no particular order) are as below:
Scrap n Crop
The Maker (Miri, Sarawak)
The Artsential (Miri, Sarawak)
Scrappin' Studio (Never shop here but it looks good!!)
Feel free to try out the rest though and please advice if you'd find any awesome stuff. Till then, happy exploring and hope you guys have fun. Happy crafting~! Cheerz.

This article is written by Rick Warren
Most of us have experienced the 8 Phases of Procrastination:
Phase 1: Hopeful – “I’ll start early this time.”
Phase 2: A little tension – “I’ve got to start soon.”
Phase 3: Creeping guilt – “I should have started sooner.”
Phase 4: False reassurance – “There is still time to do it.”
Phase 5: Getting desperate – “What’s wrong with me?”
Phase 6: Intense pain – “I can’t wait any longer!”
Phase 7: Get it over with – “Just get it done!”
Phase 8: Cycle repeats – “Next time, I’ll start earlier.”
Procrastination does tremendous damage to ourselves and others at work. It causes unnecessary pressure and problems … and it wastes opportunities, time, and money.
The problem is: procrastination is addicting! The more you succumb to it, the harder it is to change. It becomes a way of life, causing you a lot of misery.
The Bible says, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done” (Ecclesiastes 11:4 NLT).
· Stop making excuses!
· Realize perfectionism paralyzes performance!
· Face your fears!
· Focus on the gain, not the pain!
· DO IT NOW!
What have you been putting off that you know you need to do? … something at work … at home … at church? DO IT NOW!
Prayer: “God, help me to DO what I already know I need to do. Help me to do it NOW!”

This is the hotel we were staying - Cao Gia Thinh / Paradise Hotel
I had no time to shop. So while at the airport before flying back, I took some time to write a few postcards to my family and friends.

I have been making card using pink and green a lot (because that is the main colors i got so far :p). Then I thought it would be fun to take a picture of them together. Feel a bit sorry for the guys to give them such 'pink' stuff. :p
