new gem, roundelle, crimps = new watch, bracelet ..

Yeah.. so my orders have arrived.. wheew.. they looks good.. yummmy... :))

Well, if you thought is some food.. sorry, they aren't; yet i am so "full" especially after having my hands on them and whoala... pretty!! of coz and that is "to the eyes of the beholder" ya... ha..ha..

The gem in this bracelet is Silver Needle Agate Barrel with the Orange/Light Blue Roundelle finished off with the 3x2mm Twisted crimp tube and of coz ends of with nice small silver twisted toggle clasp. All these are my 1st attempt of material from Artbeads; ordered them on-line, it took less than 10 days to arrive and unexpectantly they were so much prettier.. Thought i did make a simple pair of earrings to go along.. here it is..

Luv the turn-out of the twisted crimp tube so much, as it really gaves a nice finished end-off then those usual normal crimp which kinda plain and nothing special. So i re-make one of my labradorite bracelet into a "watch-strap" with a simple round watch face gotten from Evonne some many many months ago..

Before i knew it..month is ending..

It's just hard to believe that before i actually steps into June..the month is ending soon in about another week.. gosh!!

Physically was not too well, 1st i had a "trip & fell" and gotten a little "tear" on my right palm whereas "blue-black" here & there over my knee and lower leg area. Just thought everything was fine, gotten infected with UTI.. oh.. gosh.. it was terrible.. Not only was the pain but i was scare stiff if anything was going worst, until Dr Eunice Chua, check, scan and test that everything is alright, and assured me that all i need is lots of water, a week of antibotics and cranberry juice subsequent. So.. i have recovered and well now, though tired in mental; physical; emotion occassionally resulting from mom's attention. Lord give me strength pls!!

Have not been blogging but craft still goes on at my "back-drop".. had my hands on sewing pouches and a bible cover for myself and ..hmmm.. amazingly they turn out nice especially the bible cover. a couple of pic here to "show-off" a little..

To All Mother's..Happy Mum's Day !!

Here's a tribute to ALL Mothers ~ Happy Mothers Day !!!

Love for Mum..

Saw this small nice cake displayed on the shelf while getting loaf of bread for the morg breakfast.. and it juz came on me that .. "hmm..nice cake, mum should love it is mango flavor".. well nice for a reason too.. tomorrow is Mother's Day!! So.. home with it..

As i stroll home with the cake in hand, thoughts ran thro of how mum's reaction would be.. i knew she would say "it's expensive, .. i dun have the appetite, .. what so special about mother's day, .. " blah..blah.. arh.. well, it is never to her expectation, it juz too tough, too high for me to reach & meet; anyway, it doesn't matter any more, as long as i have done my best, did what i should, duties, responsibilities, care, loves are all thrown out to her!

Juz before i step into the house, i cross my arm around myself [giving me, myself a gd hug] and say .. "Is alright gal, you have already done more than what has been ask of.." and i prayed blessing over mum.

Indeed, mum wasn't kind of surprise or happy, she ate a little slice and said she's not in good appetite, her body is aching .. well .. can see from the pic, she wasn't that happy.. :( never mind..

never mind.. If only i did have someone to celebrate like this.. ha.. wow.. sighhh...

Well, well, nonetheless, i truly must Thank Lord, for her, for this family, if not for them; i did be in one of those gals homes or even orphanage.. Mum has been thro' lots of tough lives; during her youth, waving thro even jap war times. She has also been with me thro' my darkest time, though nagging seems to be her only reciporal action, but physically she is there.. and that is till tis day the sight of her frail & weakling movement sent my heart out squashing... Thank Q MaMa..

sometime it pays to be slow & careful.. awuuuchh...oooh..oh.. never would i have expected a "trip" of my office slippers would send me almost head over heels and roll over the street & almost near the road!! hooo..Thank God for HIS "guarding angels"..

It was during our lunch break while walking that i had this "tumble over".. totally off balance, nothing infront for me to grab hold of.. Kat, Feng & Su Dong was shock..esp Kat as she was just beside me, thus she manage to "save" my working glasses from breaking.. while the other hand of hers gave me a "lift" on my arm which saves me from a "worsen-fall".

Well, with some aches & tore of skin on my right palm, we continued over for our lunch; after which proceeded to a pharmacy to get plaster and antiseptic cream. The pain & muscles aches didn't turn out till night..when i tried to stood down to help mum with some cream treatment over her skin.. sighhh.. she was sighing away seeing me in tis condition. We both praise the Lord for HIS protection.. hallelujah.. :)

Wanna finish up the netted necklace which i bead halfway thro' but the stretch of holding the needle pulls my palm skin.. oookiee.. better rest off for healing.. Washing up dishes was bad but with a plastic bag hoop over, it surely help coz the water & detergent won't smear the raw wound.

when appreciation becomes "depreciation"..

just wonder how many of us wanted to be recongized, noted, even applaud; or perhaps a better word i could think of "appreciate".. need not be rewarded in substance, but kind of just being noted. Yes, NOTED would just be enough - as for me noting just within their hearts, thoughts and not returning any "hurtful" or "insulting" words. That is my whole want, abundance of gladness, even joy knowing what i have done is being appreciated, being thought of..

but when appreciation is being taken for granted.. it truly hurts, disappoint. many a times, i did tell myself that perhaps they have just taken it as "habitual", "a routine", "a responsibility", "dutiful" .. guess the list could go on covering up for them, or merely consoleling myself; well, alright whatever, just let them be ya .. after all i did what i did.. as daughter, as good assistant ..

let go, let go of that urge of "appreciation".. it doesn't made me any richier; happier!! But non-acceptance, comparison ripe off every skin of peace, joy .. Lots of people gives that regular quote "GOD sees all that you have done, you will be rewarded" .. of coz i can't help but agree to that, but i would re-phrase, i don't need reward in return, what i need is LUV.. and please tell them, it is not a MUST or a RESPONSIBILITY or a DUTIFUL .. choices is there, just as HE has given us CHOICE.. so i chose to be loyal, filial, dutiful, responsible and not neglect.

well, perhaps i haven't learn hard enough to ignore "appreciation", okay.. i should let it "depreciate"!! let appreciation be depreciate to "ground zero" ... PAPA God, wash away my hurt and sew up my wounds and blanket me with your Great Favor & Love!! Thank Q..
