Not back just yet, but.......


You guys! Today it's one year exactly that I started blogging! Now I can't just let this Blog anniversary pass right!! So a quick doodle for you guys:

*sigh* this is such a crappy scan...-_-''

There are enough baked goodies to go around. So help yourself! Thanks so much for strolling along with me on this interesting journey. There is more on its way once I get back. I'm busy with rewriting and proofreading thesis stuff....booorrriiinnnggg *sigh*. I'm counting the days that I can return to blogging again and share new observations and rambles with you guys. You know...the usual stuff haha.

Oh before I go, I would like to pass a HUGE THANK YOU to the lovely ladies Elisa, Dita & Ianne for giving me the awards below. I really appreciate it and I'm honoured! Thank you!!

Hope you are all well & Take care.
Ciao Xoxo

Congrats for that!!!^^ I've read ur first post and its reminds me to my first post- it was pictures of dresses that I made at work and pictures I snapped with my youngest brother- there was no greeting post at all hahaha coz I was so blank about blogging.My reason of blogging was quite an accident- I bought a new mobile phone back in 2008 that automatically connected to a blog account in Blogger so I post what ever I snapped with my mobile to my blog since. in the first year my blog has no name at all till I got my very first follower from Turkey hahah and I was like OMG! later on I joined blog catalog and the rest of story is like you can see on my blog now hehehe. All the best for your blog and for the art work you do, always.I am glad to know such a sweet lovely and creative person like you. XOXO
