My Family is Farnee (reprise)

Look who we found in the ice cube tray...
for some reason Benny is very tickled by the idea of Han Solo being frozen (I think it's a Star Wars thing)

Us Ngoos are farnee people...

Layout Title:  "Home Entertainment System"

I think I like it that way...

Still Learning....

So far....this is what I have learned

Yes, those are real pencils....and no, that's not what I have learned.

Lesson 1:  Time flies... treasure each day

Lesson 2:  God gives pull? huh?...No.  God gives life... 


Lesson 3:  some things...

...take time

Lesson 4:  It helps to laugh at yourself

Lesson 5:  Ordinary Days are No Less Important


It's 6:35am Easter morning.... Thank You God for Easter! Thank You God for hope.  Thank you for this life.  I'm still learning just how amazing You are.

Over at the Ngoo House....

Canvas Birdhouse album - March 2011 class
 The house is covered in vegetation...just like our real house.  Too bad we don't have a VW van like that though...

In Case You Were Wondering:
The lumpy flowers were made by stamping on transparency, then heating the edges with a heat gun till the transparency warped and crumpled.
Shingled roof made from 7 Gypsy circle tags
 Here's what (or who) is inside the Ngoo house

Today I will be at home all day trying to finish my class projects.... good thing I like being here!

Saturday is Shaping Up...

It's started out real nice...
The Critters surprised me with breakfast in bed... Super proud of Berry - she seasoned and fried the omelette herself.  And they put the flower in the cup and Benny helped to put mayo on the bread. (somehow those little fingerprints in the bread make it extra touching)....*sniff sniff*

And things are looking promising on the work front:

I finished one project for May class yesterday.... and today I shall endeavour to finish one more! (whenever someone uses the word "endeavour" - you just know that they're actually feeling really lazy and trying to psych themselves up to get to work)

Here I go!  Endeavouring....

Brain Full Hands Itchy

He always asks me "What exactly are you thinking about huh?" (usually in exasperation when I forget things or do things without thinking) - he should get a medal for putting up with a scatterbrain like me.

And the answer is (sometimes) - everything at once!!! Like right now, my head is jammed with a whole hodge podge of different ideas for May's class projects along with things for Good Friday and Easter and the kids preparing for exams while Abba is running as my inner soundtrack...

I'm itching to get my ideas out! But time seems to run out too fast...and on other days, there is practically nothing on the idea front... such is life eh?

Here's one idea that managed to come out:
A whole layout covered in cardboard box slices: (all papers from majadesign)
The 'whorls' in the 'wood' are my favourite, along with the 'vines' made of baker's twine and little green leaves from the majadesign pattern paper.Ok...gotta run.....gotta get those ideas out in paper before they all run away....

This was Nice...

Coming home to find my name in a magazine.... :) Grateful and honoured to be featured amongst so many talented people in the Spring 2011 issue of Somerset Memories. ....

including fellow Singaporean scrappers Wendy and Emeline ....

Benny wasn't very impressed (the album featured contains photos of him).....he just said "oh" then ran off to play Lego..... haha.
