Down and Out

Sorry for the disappearance in the past few days.... I have been so ill!!! I was meaning to take more photos over the weekend and try out all the software Joanne has been suggesting but I guess I just passed out...I am still on medication, stemetil for nausea, meteospasmyl for my stomach spasms and some other unidentified pills!!! Gosh I hope I will be better soon, all I gave to the web designers were colour combis for the new websites...there is still my logo to be sent to him!!!!

We have completed the shipping policies and the about us column, now I need to take more pictures for the web designs...in the mean time, we have ordered from Basic Grey, and American Crafts...will get down to Sei soon...have yet to register as a retailer on a whole lot of other websites....what brands would you guys want to see besides the Scrap-N-Crop stuff??? Do let me know!!!

Being Grateful

Cally thought me something today! Bryant is here to teach us to be grateful for what we have...so if we ever feel unhappy about our weight, or that nose or that flab....at least we should be grateful for what we have!!!

Anyway, I am planning to also put up some of Bryant pages that I made....I have not however figured how to photograph a 12x12...so if anyone can help....

And as to progress on the website, we are finalising some items with the designer this Saturday...imagine, having to explain to the designers and the web-shaper guys what scrapbooking is all about!!! Wait till I get the wives addicted!!!

My First Blog


Saturday, September 9 2006

Never really thought I was the "blogging" kind, though everyone seems to be doing this and what better way to journal everything here...its really cool!

Here goes, started out with my first major order for my soon to be online scrapbook store. www.scrap-n-crop.com. Went through the ground work with the web designer last Wednesday and I cant wait to see what his samples will be like!!! Of course in Malaysia no one knows what scrapbooking is all about so I dutifully lugged a big paper bag of what scrapbooking stuff in a nutshell is!

Anyway, it took me one whole afternoon to browse the catalogues of 2 major scrapbooking brands, I ordered from one and paid, saved another in the cart (have got to decide what I really need for starters as I went overboard!)

I started scrapbooking right after my son Bryant was born, 3 years ago on May the 12th 2003. He was born with severe brain injury and I was told by doctors that he would not live long. So I created this journals of him with poems and photos for keepsakes. Of course then I didnt know what acid free was and used gift wrapping papers for my first scrapbook! I found out what scrapbooking was later by chance and from then needless to say I was addicted!

Anyway, here is a photo of Bryant!


Bryant is cortically blind, deaf and can't swallow. He is spastic quadripelgic and feeds via a tube through his stomach! He us a darling and I have learnt so much from him! Well, its time to feed him, so until I write again tomorrow!

Your addicted Scrapper!
