I wanna do lots of things now. . .

including but not limited to

* bawling my eyes out, just because I've been feeling like crap all day long. Wait, that sounds wrong. Since yesterday, before bedtime.

* take off for a holiday with my gorgeous family to get rid of the blues. March couldn't come fast enough, we're to fly to Penang! Yay!

* sleeping for 4 days and 6 hours.

* wrapping myself up in cellophane tape. Why? I feel like I'm gonna
a) break sometime soon.
b) explode.
c) all of the above.

*sigh* I guess I'm just gonna cry a little and then put on my big girl panties and suck it up. No one is gonna walk all over me and get away with it, that I know for sure. That's about all I can say, really. Nothing to do with my beloved family or the beautiful people in scrapbooking world anyway. I just had to get this off my chest. Sorry to bore you, friends.

And I'm missing my sisters. A lot. *sigh* I love that we get along really well, but I hate it when we start missing each other so bad that a simple message on the Facebook wall sets off the waterworks. LOL. Silly, I know, but that's just us. So, so glad to have them.

One layout..

Home & Complete

Lots of HomeFront, some Hambly, some Prima, some Cosmo Cricket, bits of Jenni Bowlin, and lots of mist :) (I went to town as you can see)

close up 1

I love that the flowers came crumpled like that. Crumpled as we are, beautiful in our own way.

close up 2

I used the heart stamp from one of the add on from January kit from Studio Calico. Just watch the stamps section at the shop if you missed it and want it for your collection. if we're lucky, they may have it for sale! I wanna buy another set for my best friend!

close up 3

Storytime Alphabet, on misted cardstock. I love that set. Just right for me.

And because I don't want to end the post with a sulk, here are some things to smile about.

* Mr Husband ran his first Urbanathlon last Sunday. 12.5km with obstacles such as monkey bars, crawling in a tunnel, crawling in muddy water etc etc and came up a very decent #85 at the timing of 1hr04mins+, out of 1137 participants :) We were there with him, roasting under the hot sun. So worth it :)



:) Very proud of him, although the waking up at ungodly hour in the morning didn't excite me, a visit to Starbucks at 645hrs cured that, fast :)

I'm gonna go soak in the tub for a while and hope the crankiness of the day fades away as I pull the plug off after maybe 40minutes. Thank you, seriously thank you for being here, for reading, for being my blog friends.

xoxo

Awe, Sasha! I'm sorry you're feeling crappy! Take some time to do something special for yourself.
I hope things look brighter soon. Things have a way of working out. Just hang in there.
Love the page as usual. I think all the glimmer mist is fab and the photo of you and your sisters is beautiful. You're so lucky to have close sisters like that.

my rule of thumb is that there is almost nothing that a bath and a nap can't cure-and maybe some chocolate. Hope today is a better day Sasha!

Amy said...

Oh Sasha I am so sorry to hear that things are crappy. You are too wonderful and genuine and sweet to deserve that! I really hope things have brightened up for you since this post :D *HUGS!*

And I totally understand about being teary from a simple message from your sisters. I am the same way about my brother and sister. You are very lucky to have such a strong relationship with your siblings. :D

And tell Mr Husband Huge Congrats on the Urbanathlon!! I think my husband would have been number 1137 in that race. :P And I would have been not too far behind. LOL! We are currently working on changing that!

And last but not least, Thank You so so so much for your kind words on my blog!!!! You have me blushing to the shade of a tomato and grinning from ear to ear! You are my inspiration so to hear that from you: Wow! Thank you.

BTW the LO is seriously one of my favs!!! Stunning! Love It! And the storytime letters: you did an amazing job cutting those out! Mine always turn out wonky but your are stellar perfect! I know that may sound silly but those things are not easy! LOL!

Brenda Hurd said...

big hugs - hope you feel better soon. That has to be so hard to be that far away from your sisters too - the layout is amazing! And i love that alpha too- i need to get it out more!

Ria said...

Dear Sasha....while I think your cellophane tape won't hold as strong as your blogger buddies' hugs around you, I think your LO are something precious to hold. Without the cellophane tape, of course.
Sending you a BIG hugs from here....and be grateful you have sisters who UNDERSTAND how to stop (or start) that waterwork. All I had are two brothers... (which I am grateful also)...but who need men in time like this? :)

Christiane said...

sending you a big big hug, girl!!
hope you're feelin' better now!!
the layout is so so YOU and i'm your biggest fan overseas!! ;)

Your LO is gorgeous as always. I came here from Scarlet Lime. I just saw that you're the Feb. guest designer. SUWEET!!! I got my stuff but I haven't even touched it. Now I should cause my favorite scrapper is the guest designer :)

Have a great one and go eat something good for me!! I MISS good Asian food... Malay/Indo/Singapore food!
