a SALE {and a giveaway}

Dear Friends, today is the start of my DE-Stash SALE!!

{i call it de-stash because they are my LOVELY crafty notions which I’ve been collecting and things that I made myself … and they have been with me “stashed” in my craft room… no worries, they are all new, in very good condition… and I’m selling them at a very reasonable (low) price}

I will be adding little by little all the way till end September 2010.
You may reserve products up to 1 week, just let me know *smile*

Hoookayyy… these days, my passion for jewelry making/beading has been renewed. Thanks to my God Sis… she’s learning how to make Rosaries and braceletes and earrings… so she’s looped me into this with her enthusiasm.

This is part of somethings I achieved over the week. (i’ll post the others in flick later this week)

 Today is the 3rd day of Chinese New Year. The busy time has passed, it’s begining to calm down a little, and I got the whole week off ! Yay! So I’m going to be in a sewing frenzy (i hope!).

Magic Carpet 2010

I nominated myself to be a Magic Carpet Ticket Holder.

See the LOGO at my sidebar, it will link you to the information page about this worldwide “blogger gathering”.

This is so fun!

I can’t wait till the 25th of January where I get to post my free giveaways to my lucky readers.

I want to know my readers (yes you! )  :-).

I know I have a number of readers (google analytics and feedburner tells me so…) but somehow you are all quiet out there…

I always appreciate a comment, even if it’s just a “HI”. Please don’t be shy 🙂

Hopefully this event will kick start our conversations and close the barriers. So… look out for my giveaways!

25th Jan to 15th Feb
