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 my Easter craft project! 

I had been thinking for about 2 weeks now, about how I’ll bring in some Easter mood to The Pad, and I chanced upon some gorgeous yarn wreaths on Etsy!  I adore them and can’t wait to have a go at creating my own Easter yarn wreath.

Here are some which really inspired me.  Aren’t they pretty? =)

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!

Ack! How cute is this?

This baby food jar pincushion project from CraftPudding is just too cute to pass up.  And its simple too!

Now, I just need someone who can donate an empty baby food jar to me.  Heehee… I’ll make one for you too if you give me 2 or 3 jars!! =D
