Might this just be the solution for unfriendly neighbours?  People who persistently ignore your presence and neighbourly smiles?  People who are just downright rude?

Maybe I will consider doing something like this and hope that this might just break the ice and be reciprocated (all I’m asking is for a smile to be returned!). 

Maybe I will make really sour lemon muffins, as a private joke, since there has been no lack of sour faces from them!  Haha!  Or I can be all sugary nice and make some awesome chocolate cupcakes.  With frosting.

Should I?

Anyway, until I decide, enjoy this free printable “hello neighbour” tag from Amanda Joy @ joy ever after.

Thanks Amanda for sharing the lovelies!

I’ve found an awesome website that I must MUST share!

storage glee

Storage | Glee is a collection of ideas for storage solutions/designs and it is chockful of wonderfulness!  Some are awesomely “why haven’t I thought of that?“, others are “just pretty to look at“, and then there are those that are “seriously brilliant” ideas.

And of course, those that I can’t wait to try out for the new home.

Love, love, LOVE!

Yesterday’s post reminded me that I have a whole lot of ribbon organizing to do. *groan*

One of my suppliers for cookiefleur products is Ribbons Galore, by Fiona Carter.  Their ribbons are always the highest quality, and I’ve never had anything but good and efficient service from them.

Fiona also has a wonderful blog – living on the crafty side of life, and it is filled with all sorts of crafty goodness.  She recently made some lovely paper lanterns for her daughter, Emily’s birthday and when I saw them, I thought they would be just PERFECT for Mid-Autumn Festival!

Mid-Autumn’s tomorrow and there’s no party at my place this year… but by next year, I hope I’ll get to decorate our new pad with all these lovely lanterns strung through out for a smashing reunion party, drinking Long Jing Chinese tea and eating mooncakes!

For those having a headache with last minute decor, these lanterns don’t seem too hard to put together.  Fiona uses sheets of 12″ by 12″ paper and of course, some ribbon!  Have fun!

Ok, so I haven’t been the most hardworking with my crafting and in fact been downright uninspired…  but lately, boosted by some well meaning comments and having done some re-thinking about direction of my products, I’ve decided to change my market segment!

So what this means is that my goods –  accessories for grown-ups, will take a backseat – not gone, just not the main focus.


I’ve started crafting the items and hope they’ll be ready soon for listing on Etsy and something else *wink*… and I hope you’ll stay tuned, and will be excited for me when I get things up and running again!
