Yes I'm still here. Alive and kicking! Lol! My life has been busy lately and I want to let you know that I am not ignoring my blog. It's just been one of those days where you don;t know what to write. I'm planning to redesign my blog but I'm thinking of doing after our second baby is born which is on November. I've been working on new designs and ideas. You know I'm not a graphic designer and it will take long. Lol!
Taking care of a toddler specially when you're pregnant is ain't easy. I felt guilty of not playing with my daughter anymore as I just want to lay down in the couch every single day. I am always extremely tired! I tried my best to pay attention to her as much as possible. I even brought her to our local library last week for a playgroup activity and I'll be bringing her again this week. It was awesome that she can mingle with other children and she likes that she has playmates. I think she gets tired of playing with her mommy. Lol! It's also a practice for her when her sibling arrives in November.
Anyway, I'm still doing my baking stuff and of course my Etsy shop. My shop is doing great! I'm so happy that I'm almost getting close to my 600 sales which is awesome. I enjoyed doing it! In terms of making cakes and baking, I actually slowed down a little bit. I have few orders but I will stop for a while when the baby comes but will definitely will go back probably after a few months but we will see.
Well, speaking of baking, I actually did a cake this week for a smash cake photoshoot and here it is. It's a buttercream rosette, one of my favorite technique in cake decorating.
I also made some cookies for a first birthday which I will post soon. See, I told you I'm not sitting around the house, I'm busy. Lol! Plus I have few Etsy orders to finish this week too. Although I just want to sit down and lay down in the couch, I still have things to do but I'm not overdoing it. I tried to take a rest and takes naps whenever my daughter takes nap. Nap time is the best time! Lol! Sleep while I can!
Two months ago, I started this new "activity". Ha! I started couponing! Who's into couponing?! I have been wanting to do it for a long time. At first it was confusing but I have already learned the do's and dont's and the routine on couponing. Oh my gosh! It's addicting! So my husband calls me his "crazy coupon wife". I will post some of my hauls and will share how I did save money on the items that I bought. Can you believe some of the items I bought I actually got for free. Yes, free! Who doesn't like free stuffs? Ha!
Another thing that's make me busy too is decorating the nursery. I've been DIYing! Here are some of my projects that I've done.
Love my dresser! I bought this old dresser which used to be in oak color, repainted it and hand painted the leaves and branches. I love how it turned out. I would like to do another one for my daughter's room.
Made this canvass wall decor too. I bought a canvass at Hobby Lobby. Oh did I told you that we have Hobby Lobby now that is close to our town. Yes! I'm happy! Ok, anyway, I used a sharpie and wrote my favorite verse. If you asked, that is hand written, no stencil used :) I used to do calligraphy when I was in high school and love doing it.
Okay, I think this is enough for now. I will update my blog as best as I can. *fingers crossed* Also I will have a pregnancy update, that's a must. Lol! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
