These days..

are busy and tiring! it is nearing the exam period for the kids and right now, we are in the midst of intense revision and marking of scripts. I just got to hang in there another week. (:

On the scrapping front, i am finding it much easier to churn out 8.5by11 layouts as they save more time and are much more fun to do! Haha. Did you check out Sketchy Thursdays' sketch this week? Here is using the latest Studio Calico products and doing my own interpretation to this sketch. I am loving how simple mistings and playing with shapes can work well on a page.

Using some jazz blue glimmer mist, calico white and calico custard. Woweeeee! I love butterflies! Haha. But the saddest thing was losing one of my butterfly mask after just one day! Now i am down to 4 instead of 5. Oh well, i will find it soon!

Happy Sunday!

During Teacher's Day, I was awarded an unexpected award. Prior to that, there were already students telling me personally that they voted for me and i was quite surprised as these were coming from students that I constantly loved to nag and scold at. Jokingly, i told the class to not vote for me as I loved being in the background and do not like going on stage in front of the school. They laughed.

I knew the chances were not high and I didnt take it too seriously. On that day, the usual top guns were named and my name popped out of nowhere. Stunned, as the cheers rang throughout the hall. And then my name was called as the winner. Most Caring Teacher Award. What did I do to deserve this? I was definitely not one of the best teachers in school and there are times where i question whether i am an effective teacher in the classrooms.

I am honoured.I scold them but hopefully, they see that it is my way of caring for them and reminding them to buck up. I treat them as friends at times and hopefully, they see that teachers can be relatable and approachable. I try to produce the best lessons and notes and hopefully, they see that learning can be fun and easy. I have my off days when they test my patience but hopefully, they see that i am only human. Most importantly, i share my personal experiences and lessons learnt so that they realise that education is important for them to shape their own futures.

It was not my first job choice and i do question my intentions of joining the teaching force but it's little moments like these that makes you feel that what you are doing is worthwhile.

Of course, Kate wanted to post with Mama's name. So by default, my dear sister in law will also receive another smaller RAK, thanking her for letting me post Kate's face in public. Thanks to Kate for being a real sport. She was so eager to post for the camera.

Showing you another project that i did for my house. I decided to do an artist tray so that Mum can display in the dining area. It fit perfectly with the white walls. Using lots of Pink Paislee goodies and webster pages, along with my favourite dollies that i have recently finished using. :(

Thanks for stopping by. I cant wait for this week as it is the Sept Holiday and it would be a good time to rest and charge up with the upcoming KL trip too. I will be back to post more reflections on the recent Tcher's Day.
