Christmas Cookies

We were already crossing over to the new year when we realized we still haven’t decided on what to give our colleagues as Christmas gifts.

So in a whim, I bought stuff for my female friends with thoughts of adding something personalized. However, until now I still haven’t had the time to do that yet. So I’ll probably give them next week as a New Year’s gift. Sheeesh I am always delayed with a lot of stuff. I think I need to make this my new year’s resolution. Hehe.

Good thing for hubby though, deciding was too easy. We simply bought cookies!

We repacked them, added stickers and butterflies and so ta-dah!

Too bad I failed to take any more decent pictures. But that’s okay. I am happy that his female colleagues especially liked (and preserved) the butterflies! *Fist pumps*

 

I’ll post about my own gifts next week. Stay tuned! 😉

The Best of 2016 on IG

It’s that time of the year where people look back into the past to relive or rediscover things. Sometimes we reminisce. Sometimes we find new revelations.

Tonight, I looked back on my best IG posts for 2016:

And you know what?!

I realized I hadly ever used it at all. 36 posts for the whole year? I really need to up my game in this world of social media. Haha!

So as part of my new year’s resolution, I will not only increase my blogposts, but I will also share more on IG. Haha. Yeah, let the world look more into the interior of my soul and get to know me better. I hope.

Nevertheless, I am rather happy with my best 9. And as expected, they are craft related. (Though the amigurumi owls were not made by me…) It was a fun (though a bit craftsy stressful) year for eclations. I am glad I got to experience a lot of new things. And I pray for newer and better things this year. God has great plans for me, I know! 😉

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!!

The year 2016 has been very good to me. There were a lot of challenges and ‘downs’ but the ‘ups’ and blessings definitely outweighed the bad. I have, as always been, blessed with a loving family, beautiful daughter, inspiring (though at times stressful haha) craft projects, and miracles at work. What more could I ask for, right?

But really, there are more things I want and desire to do and I continue to pray to the Lord to make more of them happen this new year. Aren’t you just excited? I am!

‘Coz I know that the Lord has the best of plans for me and my family and I just can’t wait to see them unravel. So pray, anticipate, and watch with me! Will you?

In line with that… there are actually major changes I am planning to do with my blog.

Initially, I created this blog to focus on and showcase my craft projects. I wanted to make more photo/video tutorials. But as you may have noticed, updating the blog regularly has been a challenge for me. I was always conscious of what to post, how to post, how to take good photos, how to make interesting videos and stuff like that… to the point that I fail to post altogether. And I suppose I’ve been missing the whole point. This whole time!

So this year, things will change. I have decided, to let go! Let it go… Let it go… Can’t hold it back anymore… ^^v

I will no longer post just about crafting, but I will post just about anything! Anything I want to share about myself, my day, my daughter, my husband, my family, my work, my friends, my life, and still, my crafting projects of course.

For 2017 onwards, I’ve decided to just share whatever my heart wants to share with the world!!! Yeah the world! Haha.

So I hope you continue to support me, and visit my blog, read my updates, and share with me your life too.

Excited? I am!

From my family to yours… HAPPY NEW YEAR and cheers to an upcoming year of God’s faithfulness! Much love! xoxo
