EtsyGreetings Valentine Blog Hop

Welcome to EtsyGreetings team's Valentine Blog Hop.

Valentine's day is merely 2 weeks away. Have you gotten your Valentine's card? As you're hopping through our blogs, I hope you find "the card" for your special one or maybe inspired to make one yourself. Either way I'm sure it'll be the perfect one for your loved one.

For me, the card above is the perfect one. The quote: Grow Old Along With Me, The Best Is Yet To Be, is so true to me. It reminds me of our wedding vows. We might not use the exact phrase, but you know what I mean :-) I love my husband dearly and I really hope that we grow old together, through the ups and downs and always be reminded that we have each other.

I'd like to pair this card with these miniature houses by Orlydesign.
I adore Orly's artworks by the way. Every single piece is a beautiful keepsake. These little houses remind me how together, DH and I had built a family. With a loving husband and a sweet son, I feel right at home, no matter where we are and what we're going through.

Thanks for hopping by!

Valentine's Tags

Happy Monday!
I hope you had a great weekend.
Mine was pretty nice. I had a chance to spend 2 full days with DH and Ethan, pretty much spending the time at home and relaxing and ended it with a family dinner last night with my parents, sister and her daughter to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

Today, I'm anticipating that my replacement printer to arrive on time. It'd better be today as I have tons of pending orders to complete. Yes, my printer died on my last Thursday. *sigh* Thank goodness that it's still covered under the 1 year manufacture warranty. I can tell you that I'll be working until late at night tonight to meet deadlines. I do love what I do, so no worries about it.

By the way, Valentine's day is just around the corner. Have you gotten your Valentine cards and tags for your loved ones? I have a few in my shop, so if you don't have time to make yours and really want to have one-of-a-kind handmade cards and tags, be sure to check my shop out.

Firsts in 2012

Gosh, it has been over a month that I haven't showed myself up in the blog world. This is my first post in 2012. As some of you know, we went for a month vacation to Taiwan and Indonesia. I thought I would just relax while being in overseas. It turned out, we've been quite busy running around, going out with friends and family, one mall to the other, and excessively enjoying the foods! A month went by too fast.

So here I am, back in Canada, back to the routines with some plans cooking up :-) We're up to something and I can't share that just now.

It snowed on the weekend, the first snow of the year. I heard that there is a snowfall warning on Wednesday, a heavy one. I just hope that we still can go out as I have errands to run that day and there is no time to slow down.

Sunny and snow is a good combo. It's just beautiful. And the smile of my little one makes the day just super perfect!
