I am back from NYC... with a bad back : ( My daughter has so many heavy luggages to bring home with her, I hurt my back helping her dragging those bags, and boy... guess how much I paid for over weight bags, 300 bucks, yikes.... Do you have kids that go to college with 2 bags and come home with 3? What do you do when kids do not listen to you? My older girl goes to school in CA, I drove her up to school with my mini car, and we had to rent an SUV to bring all her stuff back last summer, I thought my younger would learn from the experience, when I moved her to NYC beginning of the school year, I restricted her to just 2 bags, I said if you cannot fit your stuff into two bags, you are just not bringing because we are flying and not driving, it is just not worth to pay extra for bags, so we did without problem. Who knows the problem came when I have to move her home after the school year ended, not only I have to buy another 29" luggage for her, we came home paying 300 extra for flying the bags home, plus a bad back from dragging those bags out of the dorm room to the car park. What should I do with kids like that? Any advice? Anyway, thanks for letting me vent, LOL! I am glad she is home though! Ok, here's a card for
We hosted the Mother's Day celebration over the past weekend for SAN (Singapore Association of Nevada), it was a lovely evening at our backyard, and here's the homemade gift I made for all the mothers in the club.
Lemon Olive Oil Foot Scrub

I started with the box that holds my cup noodles, LOL! Cover it with old book pages
aged it with inks....
and then a bit of stamping...
tie tulle and handmade tissue paper flower on the outside of the box
and then fill up the box up with jars of handmade foot scrub.....
moss, roses and cut out butterfly....
oh and the medallion
