There are a lot of things I need to catch up on especially releasing seasonal Etsy products that I made in advance since July. I just realized I couldn’t do all of them at once.
First, in August my father-in-law passed away unexpectedly. My family had to leave Geneva to return to Brunei the next day. It was as if it was a dream. Although I did not get to know my father-in-law as much, but he is a great ‘father’ who taught me many things that my own father couldn’t. He will certainly be missed.
Because of the sudden things that happen in our lives, there are very few changes that have to be made prior to our return to Geneva. First, after a discussion and a suggestion I have made, my mother-in-law remains with us. I suppose this is understandable because my husband is the only child and we could not let her live alone in Brunei, although she has many siblings. They have their own lives, their families, their commitment, and so on, so bring her here, it’s a great idea, and maybe it might help alleviate the grievance. I just hope I could adapt to the changes since I used to be alone doing things around the house like a housewife normally do and taking care of my autistic child’s needs. It’s still early to tell, but I’m just looking forward to a peaceful day.
Reopening My Etsy
Ever since we were in Brunei, I’ve been putting my Etsy on vacation. But we are back in Geneva now, so just a few days ago, I reopened the shop because I have to do the updates which were supposed to be released during the summer. I still don’t know what are you guys thinking about late-seasonal stickers though, but I think a journaler or a planner who documents their memories pretty late (I know I used to do that) would maybe appreciate them. If you guys are interested in having a Cottagecore sticker sheet, cute sticker flakes and art prints, you can browse them here in my Etsy shop. I updated the shop with 17 more items. Hopefully, this time they find home to yours.
This time, there are more art prints that have been produced. Some are old illustrations that I drew digitally and it was the first time, I’m selling sticker pack. Next update I’m going to do more.
Any suggestion on what should I draw next?
No A Baby Anymore
Last Saturday was my daughter’s 7-year birthday. I see how she grows up and quite a few times I felt it seemed like yesterday her height was below my waist and now I could embrace you without getting down to my knee. And you already know how to pout? I know it’s good for her to be more expressive now, but I’m still not used to it. Oh, the good news happened on 22nd October she blew out her birthday candles for the first time. Sigh. I don’t want time to go by so quickly. I realized how valuable every moment is.
Celebrated with the broken red velvet cake I made one day before her birthday. Thank God I can cover it up with the cheese frosting. Lol.
Happy birthday my sweet Omeng. I can’t believe you’re 7 years old already! You’re growing up so quickly and becoming such a big girl *sobs* I hope you know just how proud everyone is of you! May Allah showers you with so many blessings and help you to spend the future with lots of happiness and joy. I love you so much.
