Right now, I am very fascinated with cardboard. There are just tons and tons of things that you can do with cardboard. I have used bits and pieces of cardboard to make gift tags and other crafts. I have also seen some really creative blogs which use cardboard boxes as toys for kids. So, if you are into diy and would like to use some cardboard boxes as toys, you may want to check out Rolobox.com. It is a reusable set of wheels and brackets that can be fitted onto any cardboard box. Just use the wheels to create a cart, car, train, bus and more.

My daughter’s birthday is coming up next month. I have been cracking my head on what to do for her birthday. Though there won’t be a big celebration, I would still buy her a cake and prepare some goodie bags for her friends. So, the hubs has been looking around for digital recorders just so that he can capture the birthday celebration and I have been busy looking around for gift packaging. Found a few lovely items from Sur La Table.
Polka Dot Plastic Bags
Pastel Ice-cream bowls.
Aren’t they the cutest?

While the spouse was on his laptop searching for duracell procell aa, I was on my computer, drooling over Madewell sandals. Those are the latest collection for Spring and Summer. I got butterflies in my tummy while looking at these fun shoes at Madewell. They are just perfect for the warm weather. Simply pair them with denim or a pair of shorts and you are all set.
Time for some retail therapy soon.

While the spouse was looking for teflon hose, I was busy shopping for baby gifts. My spouse’s business partner and his wife are expecting a baby. His wife is due to give birth next month. I understand that they are expecting a baby girl. Sweet. So, I went online shopping and narrowed down a few items which I think would be perfect for the baby.
Flexi-Bath atWhiteStep.co.uk A very convenient bath tub that can be folded away when not in use.
Ballerina RagDoll from Snugg Night Wear
Cotton Pink Polka Dot Hat from Snugg Night Wear
Time to decide which item to buy.

You know, this DIY stuff is really making me fall head over heels in love with arts and crafts especially when it comes to paper crafts. I am glued to the computer most of the time browsing creative blogs and pinterest. If only I have more time. I would love to just sit down and do my crafts. Sometimes I even wish that my family or friends are planning a wedding so that I can help with some decor stuff. I saw this cute idea on recycling tin cans into centerpieces at reuseandupcycle.blogspot.com.
I can’t wait to do something with my stash of tin cans!
