Still Recovering

Last weekend I went away to a scrapbooking retreat with fellow Girl Guide leaders at a GG camp. It was good fun but all week I have been operating on a deficit of sleep!  The theme was of course winter and silly me was too busy scrapbooking to actually take photos (which I deeply regret today). Anyhow, here is an example of the fun food we were given that weekend. I'm in love with them!

I will have to post my layouts I did later this weekend. Promise!

Also this week, us crazy beaders at work got together. Here was one of the recent projects we did using wire and pearl beads. The theme was pea pods, so we tried two methods. Both are my prototypes, but I'm like the more organic free-form one (one with just silver wire). So I'm thinking of making a few more.

This past Thursday is also the beginning of the Lunar New Year. I love this time of year simply for all the festive decor at Asian markets and for all the fabulous food my family makes. Gung Hay Fat Choi, Sun Nin Fi Look (Prosperity and Happy New Year!)

  1. Yay! I'm a follower :o) I didn't know you had a blog until recently... so today I had a chance to scroll back and check out all your stuff! Those little pea pods look extremely cool - would love to know what you end up using them for. Looking forward to following your work in the future.
