Sweetness Overload

I think I may suffer from overdose of love over the week for my birthday. :p

I'm not one who enjoy being the centre of attention so naturally when friends wanted to celebrate my birthday for me, I was stressed out. But knowing how much it would mean to them, I'd agreed to meet up over a simple meal. That was how I'd spent my birthday week.. simple cosy dates with my closest friends. :)

My BFF knows how much I'd missed my Nono and gave me this dachshund balloon! So cuteeee! 

And mini Nono immediately took on the role of a 'big' brother.

You've probably heard about my obsession with Angels by now. So YES, I got these for my birthday. Woohoooo~ my Angels collection is growing! :D

I'm not exaggerating when I say my heart is bursting with love. Just hours ago, I received this sweetest parcel in my mail box. 

Thank you for reminding me that I'm loved. 

My wonderful buddy, Holly from Oklahoma had sent me these sweet little ornaments. I know she made these pretty stars by herself! Her loving words of encouragement brought tears to my eyes. Thank you, buddy. :')

You know what's the most amazing part? Holly and I have never met in person. I got to know this awesome girl back in 2009 when I started Dollgift and worked on my very first blog. So we've actually 'known' each other through blogging! Over the years we'd exchanged several letters, gifts and loads of love.

Angels can appear in many forms, and I've no doubt my lovely buddy is an Earth Angel. 

Do you believe in Angels like we do? If you do, I'd love to hear your stories. :) 

Have a beautiful week ahead.

❤ Blessings, Rheea

Quote of the week & Mini Nono

As we, the whole of Singapore mourn the loss of one of our nation's greatest heroes, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, let's not forget to celebrate his life and what he had done for us. I'm sure he has fulfilled his life's purpose, leaving a significant legacy. And I'm really proud of him. Enjoy your well deserved rest, 'grandpa'. You'll always be remembered.

Let this also serves as a reminder to us that nothing in life is permanent so treasure what we have at any given moment and do the best we can. We only have one life. Celebrate it - live, love, dream.

So, I bought some Jumping Clay (made in Korea) from Art Friend and had some fun making miniature Nono over the weekend. This clay is easy to play with as it is very soft and can be easily moulded into the desired shapes. What I also like about this clay is that, it doesn't stick or stain on your hands/desk like some clay would, yet it is 'gluey' enough to hold different parts together. For instance, I did not even need to use any glue or stick to keep the different parts in place. I did however had trouble removing them once I put them together; that was the downside about this clay. You need to be very accurate in where you intend to place the parts or you'll end up having to redo that area over again. Oh and I haven't tell you another brilliant thing about this wonderful clay - it doesn't require any baking; simply air dry it and ta-dahhh, you get your rubber-like miniature character. BUT, you pay for what you get, this clay is not that cheap.. a small pack of 50g clay cost me $4.70 (about US$3.40). I bought only black and white ones since I can easily knead the two colours together to get grey.

Time to assemble the parts!

First attempt! Does it look like a little penguin? :p

Well, I made a second one and he resembled a baby elephant.. Third try, he turned into Ratatouille. Ha. Finally I'm satisfied with the 4th attempt. He's looking more like my boy with longer body. Ohhhh I miss him so much. :( :( :(

Then Mini Nono meets Ponyo for the first time... Ponyo seemed a little wary. I guess they need some time to warm up to each other.

Mini Nono enjoying his day out and some Starbucks on Day 2.
