My Love Affair With Made With Love

It was not love at firs sight. Mind you, I had control of my emotions (and budget) then.But, there was something about this patterned paper with butterflies in it. It was my eldest daughter's 1st birthday party theme --- butterflies. And, it was so pretty and I had to buy it. I remember this lady named Swee Ching telling me that I could cut the butterflies. I looked but couldn't comprehend, why is she telling me to cut this special paper --- I am going to keep it for life! (To Swee Ching, it's still an uncut 12x12 patterned paper!)


A few days later, I passed by the store at again at Liang Court. I work at UE Square (still am!) so it's accessible. I told myself that I am just taking a peek at the Christmas themed embellishments which would look cool in my gift tags. I shyly stepped into the store, trying to be inconspicuous as possible. As I have said, I had control then so there's a big possibilty that I will leave empty-handed. But, the ladies greeted me with warm "Hi"s and "Hello"s and I, all of a sudden, became very comfortable. Minuted turned into an hour and that day, I left with ribbons and a Carl Craft Christmas Tree puncher.The infatuation became serious that I followed them to Plaza Singapura.


What more can I ask? Scrapbook supplies and good food. Perfect combination. I sooo love the mashed potato with sausages.


And, the feeling became serious. Not a day passed when I don't lurk at the forum. Sometimes, I manage to get up the nerve to upload my layouts. And, the community is there to give good advice.***It has been 4 years now and the relationship just keeps getting better, and I don't think I can ever let go.(Thanks for reading!)
