Let me start by saying:
Happy Independence Day Nigeria!
For those of you who are not in the know, October 1st is my country’s Independence Day and we’re 55 years young!
October is also my birthday month *whoop! whoop! It’s less than a week away and no I’ve not made any plans *sigh
So I’ll make this brief.
The quote as you may have already guessed is;
You must do the thing you think you cannot do
It was said by Eleanor Roosevelt and I think it is quite apt because it speaks to where we are as a country and also to me personally.
Today’s post is a celebratory one. IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!! It’s also my niece’s birthday. The little lady turns 10 and I turn….. no point revealing my age because a lot of you won’t believe me anyways. Lol! And no I’m not a ‘vampire’ as some people have tried to convince themselves. You know who you are. Anyways HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!! Over here in Nigeria the government has declared today and tomorrow public holidays to celebrate the muslim holiday. HURRAYYY!! Thank you Nigeria for my special birthday gift! 🙂
Here I am again – the prodigal blogger 🙂
Today, I’m going to share with all you lovely people, a post about the mini notebook I made as a belated birthday present for my sister. I had racked my brain to no end, wondering what to give her and had considered a notebook but wasn’t certain she might use it. This is because anyone who knows my sister, will know how much of a techie person she is. Always tinkering on her iPad, laptop, smart phone… so it was a great relief to me when I noticed that she does carry a little notebook in her bag in which she actually writes stuff.
Hello, I wish I could say my absence from blogging was because I had been in my secret lair hatching a master plan on world domination (*insert evil laugh). Sadly nothing that exciting has been going on but I have been incredibly busy at work and as a result been too tired on most days to think of new paper projects.
So today I’m going to share with you a project I did a while back for a friend’s mum. It was her 50th Birthday and though I unfortunately couldn’t make it to her birthday party I was able to make and send a belated birthday card. She was quite delighted with the card and sent me the most pleasant thank you note ever. To be blessed with the ability to put smiles on faces and create happiness in people’s lives, that’s what makes doing this worthwhile because life is to too serious and complicated already.
Hello, its been ages since my last post and I’m completely guilt ridden again. However I do have a couple of good excuses to help my case;
1. Making this was quite a challenge as it is the first pop-up card I’ve designed from scratch and ran into a few bumps, road blocks and u-turns along the way
2. This particular card is a surprise for my niece’s birthday. We actually share the same birthday and she’s been excited for months about it and won’t keep quiet about her plans and asking me what my plans were for ‘our’ birthday. She’s also highly intelligent and inquisitive so I’ve had to be very covert in designing her card as she enjoys hanging out in my workspace and is full of questions. It was soooo not easy keeping this a secret from her and her older sister who would have let the cat out of the bag immediately (where are those emoticons when you need them)
